What does it do?

SBWeather is designed to be used as monitoring software for the Tandy/RadioShack WX-200 Weather Station. The WX-200 supports Temperature, Humidity, Barometer, Wind, and Rain functions and costs approximately $300. The WX-200 is also widely known as the WM-918. A wireless version called the WM-968 is also available.

What special features does SBWeather have?

SBWeather's main design feature is network connectivity via UDP/IP. You can setup one machine in your house as a "Weather Server" and all the other machines in your house as "Weather Clients". Thus you can have full weather monitor features on any computer in your house. You'll need some sort of LAN to do this, and it must support a TCP/IP stack (actually UDP/IP is used). All modern versions of windows include TCP/IP and LAN support.

I've used a decent set of ActiveX controls to give you a nice user friendly look and feel. I've designed the program to be easy to use and configure. Graphics are designed to be user friendly and intuitive -- a thermometer looks like a thermometer! Complex real-time charting functions are available to let you see weather trends as they occur!

SBWeather includes some data logging features to save weather measurements to your hard drive. You can save to a comma-delimited text file (i.e. for loading into a spreadsheet), to html (for uploading to the web), or to formatted ascii. Measurements can be recorded at intervals from 30-seconds to 1-hour.

How well has it been tested?

SB Weather has been extensively tested and available for several years. There are thousands of SB Weather users worldwide. However, if you do notice any problems, please report them to me at smbaker@sb-software.com .
