Attention Virtual Weather Station and WeatherLink software users: Please note that the AirBridge appliance does not communicate directly to WeatherLink or Virtual Weather Station software. However, an SDK (software development kit) is available.
- The AirBridge does not support an indoor humidity sensor.
- The indoor temperature is measured inside the AirBridge receiver, and subject to internal heating, and does not accurately reflect ambient temperature.
- The wireless range of the AirBridge receiver is approximately 300 feet, unlike the Davis Instruments® VantagePro2™, VantagePro2 Plus™ and VantageVue™ wireless display consoles, which have a 1,000 feet wireless range. However, the AirBridge is also wireless to your router, extending the range an additional 200 feet.
