What you need to know about WeatherBridge

The WeatherBridge is a device that allows your weather station to send data to Weather Underground without the need for a computer. WeatherBridge works with many different weather stations. The weather stations connect directly into the WeatherBridge device via a USB connection, and then you can configure your station settings on the WeatherBridge site.

Feel free to contact the makers of WeatherBridge for any additional questions: info@meteohub.de

The AirBridge can connect to the WeatherBridge wirelessly via WiFi. This eliminates the need to connect the weather station to WeatherBridge using a USB cable.

The WeatherBridge and AirBridge work with Weather Station AND Webcams. The MeteoBridge is designed to work most easily with Ubiquiti AirCam.
