The multifunctional sensor is able to capture and send different values via Z-Wave to the smart home center:
- Air temperature;
- Relative humidity;
- Light intensity;
- Wind speed;
- Air pressure;
- Dew point.
In addition, Z-Weather samples the energy delivered by the solar cell. The measurement is normalized to a solar cell of 1 square meter and reported with 16% efficiency in kWh. To calculate the wind yield, every eighth rotation is counted and the total sum is reported as Pulse.
Thanks to Z-Weather you can trigger closing of the awning and blinds either by direct associated devices or scenes. Measures of the ambient light and the solar yield can be used to turn on the outdoor light at dusk time and turn the light off in the morning.
Warning: Please notice:
Before you can configure and use Z-Weather, the unit needs to be fully charged by direct sunlight for 4-6 hours. Without direct sun light, charging may take 12 hours.
