Climemet Cm2000 Weather Station

Recommended Posts

My Missus bought me a Climemet CM2000 weather station for my 50th birthday cos I really want to get into weather data collection and some form of very amateur forecasting. I just wanted to know people's thoughts on this type of station and whether as a starting point, they are any good. Are they reliable and do they provide accurate data if anyone out there has used one before. In short is there anyone who can give me a review.

I haven't set it up yet but hope to do so in the next couple of weeks if this incessant rain doesn't drown me when I try! I hope that someone can let me know what they think and also perhaps, what sort of station would be the best if I ever wanted to upgrade in the future.

Looking forward to your thoughts

It looks OK for the money, you'll get some data for your location and overtime it becomes quite interesting to compare averages from year to year etc.

Pleased to see it connects to computer so I guess there will be options to upload data e.g. to Wunderground, perhaps using Cumulus.

It will be easier to decide if you want to spend more on a 'better' station when you've run it a year or two.

Eventually sensors will start to fail and whereas with a davis or whatever you can just replace the one sensor, with the cheaper ones you might just as well buy a whole new thing sometimes.

Most of them will give decent accuracy if you have a site where you can position sensors well.

Since most of us only have a small patch of land or even have to mount things on a building there will usually be some shortcoming, but you can still compare conditions at your location over time.

Rainfall is often very localised so that's especially nice to see how much you had 'at your house'.

I had one of these

After setting up it worked fine for two years, was extremely useful especially for temp and dew points

Alarms too for temperatures which is good.

Over all i was impressed.

After two years the transmitting sensor stopped working, They are available for £40 but im trying to source cheaper ones.

Im a bit lost without it, but hope to get it working soon.

Two years trouble free thou

remember to loop wires down so water can not run into the components, i also used a waterproof oil to help ensure that water could not enter it, for two years that worked, not sure if water related or if the component just came to end of life.

I will update on how i get on with replacement part, and if it solved it.

If you do need to upgrade and are planning on spending a few hundred quid as opposed to several thousand, I'd recommend a Davis.

I've had a Weather Wizard 3 on a mast on the house roof since 1996 and in all that time it's only ever needed a replacement anemometer head ( the original one lasted 12 years ). It's been subject to some pretty ferocious weather in that time, being over 1000' above sea level, but the temperature sensor still gives out readings within a few tenths of a degree of those recorded by my 'official' thermometers in the screens.

I didn't bother with the rain gauge for it, as it would be next to useless almost 40 feet above the ground, so I can't comment on that. I also bought a mini screen radiation shield for the temperature sensor, I'd say that was essential for reasonably accurate readings.

      I realised we talk a lot about the weather generally, on here and across the UK but one thing that is rarely mentioned is the UV index so my first question is; Do you guys know whether we have ever recorded a UV index of 9 here in the UK? 
      I see many places as far north as Nottingham will be hitting 8 next week provided there are clear skies and many times I've known the UV to hit 8 in London, most years we get atleast 7-10 days I'd say but surely somewhere on the south coast will have hit 9 on a few accasions.
      I also regularly check www.temis.nl which gives a clear sky UV index forecast which over many years I've come to realise is generally is out by 1UV. They are forecasting 7.5 in London next week which if I'm right would mean 8.5 and surely the south coast could hit 9 by that reasoning? Any thoughts or facts would be interesting to hear. Thankyou

      I’m looking at buy a new weather station, I had a Oregon WMR 100 which was very hit and miss and eventually died but I’m looking for something far more reliable and accurate that I can upload all the data to my Mac or PC . I have been toying with either the Davis Vantage cue or Pro 2 , most posting I read suggest those that bought the Vue wish they had the Pro 2 but both seem very good . Any help or advice that can help with my decision pros or cons

      Hello,
      I've got a maplin weather station. I have had it for about 6-7 years now. Weirdly it hasn't stopped working. It's still going strong but I want something that might provide better data and possibly quick data intervals as well.
      I know about the Davis stations but they are a little out of my price range. Does anything have any suggestions that are good quality but still fit within a budget?

      Hi Weather Friends
      We are a small group of Weather Enthusiasts located in Switzerland.
      In the last months we have spent hours to develop two small PHP Scripts to check the weather of our Davis Weather Stations but also any PWS Stations from Wunderground.com.
      We want to share our work with other Weather Enthusiasts!
      Focus on development:
      Display Weather Data in Browser (especially on Smartphones or Tablets) Setting alerts and get informed on severe weather conditions via email. Target group:
      House owners checks weather for their home and garden (awnings, umbrellas, sprinkler-systems etc.)  Meteorologists & Weather Enthusiasts can use it to get informed about typical or untypical weather conditions Fire Departments may observe an area of interest (precipitation, heat etc) The result:
      G-Davis: A small PHP Script for Davis Weather Stations connected to Weatherlink Network G-Wunder: A small PHP Script for Wunderground PWS connected to Wunderground Network We are looking for Beta-Tester.
      You need a Web Sever (Webhoster) runs PHP 5x.
      NO DATABASE REQUIRED!
      Both apps (Pre-Releases) are free and ready to download from our Website: http://www.gustalert.com
      Please read the manuals for further information.

      Thank you for your interest!
      Best regards

      Greetings fellow weather enthusiasts! My wife & I are assembling the technology for our sustainable solar homestead and one item that we acquired is a working Sharper Image Color Weather Station Viewer MI606. We have an immediate need to buy & deploy one or more wireless remote thermometers that will communicate with the weather station. Since we don't have the user manual, and I can't find anything on the web that isn't at a suspicious website, I don't know what wireless remote thermometers will work with the weather station. If someone in this community knows of this weather station model and can provide any information it would be very helpful to our solar homestead project. Thank you for interest in helping. Alan & Maggie
