AURORA, Ill. – Spectrum Technologies Inc., expands its product offering with the release of the WatchDog Wireless ET Weather Station. Through the single station, customers can now receive real-time, site-specific weather data on their smartphone, including temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, wind speed/direction and solar radiation.
With an LTE CAT-M1/NB-IoT cellular radio, the 3000 Series can monitor the widely dispersed turf areas on a commercial property and send data to the SpecConnect cloud. After an overnight rainfall, a contractor can see which areas of the property received different amounts of rainfall with a separate Wireless Rain Temperature/Relative Humidity Station and adjust irrigation run times accordingly. The all-in-one design with smartphone setup makes installation quick and easy for someone whose real job is not setting up weather stations.
“With this new wireless station, you no longer have to rely on local weather services providing inaccurate rainfall and ET data,” said Mike Thurow, president and CEO of Spectrum Technologies.
Spectrum Technologies is proud to announce that the WatchDog 3000 Series Weather Station product line recently received the 2021 AE50 Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE). This marks Spectrum’s 25th AE50 award recognizing the top innovative new products produced in agricultural equipment.
