Hardware guide

Core hardware

Drivers for these stations are included in the core WeeWX distribution. Each station type provides a different set of observations, at different sampling rates. These are enumerated in a Station data table in the page for each station.

AcuRite TE923 WMR100 WS1
CC3000 Ultimeter WMR300 WS23xx
FineOffset Vantage WMR9x8 WS28xx

Driver status

The following table enumerates many of the weather stations that are known to work with WeeWX. If your station is not in the table, check the pictures at the supported hardware page — it could be a variation of one of the supported models. You can also check the station comparison table — sometimes new models use the same communication protocols as older hardware.

The maturity column indicates the degree of confidence in the driver. For stations marked Tested, the station is routinely tested as part of the release process and should work as documented. For stations not marked at all, they are "known to work" using the indicated driver, but are not routinely tested. For stations marked Experimental, we are still working on the driver. There can be problems.
