NEW: Meteobridge NANO has got a big brother, the Meteobridge_NANO_SD
A Plug-in Upgrade to Your Davis Instruments® Pro2™ or Vue™ Console
The Meteobridge NANO is a tiny plug-in device that dramatically extends the features of your Davis Instruments® Vantage Pro2™ or Vue™ weather station. The NANO is simply plugged in the expansion connector underneath the cover on the back of the console. When you close the back cover again this upgrade is completely invisible. The NANO adds a full Meteobridge feature set to your weather station setup which includes tons of services you usually need a full PC solution for. The NANO just takes about 1 watt of energy and therefore is dramatically more power efficient than using a PC or even a Raspberry Pi.
When being included into your WiFi network at home you can decide to have all of its network IP settings received dynamically from your router (DHCP) or to define credentials manually by a static setup. The NANO can even reach out through proxies to the Internet, if those don’t require authentication. The NANO shares with the other Meteobridge products that you can even login for administration when you are away from home. This is simply done by setting the “allow remote login” switch and storing the URL for external access as a bookmark on your traveling browser. You don’t need to fiddle with your firewall or to setup any dynamic DNS service for that. In case your router might give the NANO spontaneously a new IP and you will not be able to reach it in your home network with the IP you have used so far, you just browse to magicip.meteobridge.com and you will be redirected to the current IP in your home network. These advanced network features are making it as convenient as it can be for you to operate the NANO in your home network and when being away from home.

Personal Weather Pages
The NANO can feed the popular personal weather templates WD-Live, Leuven Template, Saratoga Template, Meteo Template and Home Weather Station with default scripts. This makes it very easy to setup your personal weather page by using one of the mentioned templates. Many user prefer to have their data presented in the most efficient and versatile way instead of relying on the standard visualization the main Internet weather networks provide as a give-back for uploading weather data.
Uploads / Sending
You also control when data is sent or uploaded. You can send on fixed times, or fixed periodic intervals, or triggered by individually defined events (i.e. when temp or wind is reaching limits defined by you).

We give 2 years of warranty as the manufacturer.
As the NANO does consume electricity it heats up a bit over time and being located in the expansion bay of the console this additional temp is also spread into the console and by that affects the indoor temp sensor of the console. NANO provides an option to compensate for that additional heat by an option on the web interface that also corrects the values displayed on the console itself. Compensation is easy to do but it is of course not perfect but all we can do about this.
While the NANO does send data to tons of services it currently does not feed the Davis Instruments Weatherlink network on its own.
