Off-grid weather station to measure build site conditions
I’ve purchased vacant land in hilly terrain and will be building a residence and workshop next summer.
I’d like to setup a solar or battery powered weather station to learn more about the microclimate.
Knowing, e.g., typical temperature and humidity swings on the site will help me answer questions like: “how much insulation does the workshop need to prevent condensation / rust on tools?”
Does anyone know of an off-the-shelf battery or solar powered weather station that can measure temperature, humidity, and wind speed?
I can visit the site every few weeks to change the battery and collect data from device-local storage.
I’m hoping to spend around $500 at most.
I have electrical engineering experience and know that it’s definitely possible — I’d just prefer to buy something off the shelf than spend 40 hours fabricating something myself = )
