- Davis Vantage Vue ISS and Console
- BloomSky SKY2 (170 degree, ultra-wide angle HD camera)
- WiFi Logger
The ISS is pole mounted at a height of approximately 10 ft. Below it sits the sky camera mounted to a fence post. Both are solar powered with battery backup. They transmit wirelessly and data is uploaded every 5 minutes.
The camera faces East with the village of Kenn foremost, with Exton and Lympstone in the distance beyond the Exe estuary.
Elevation at the site is approximately 54m / 177ft above sea level.
Due to surrounding structures, easterly winds are likely to be under-represented in the data.
The station operates wirelessly and without use of a computer.

Further Skycam connection issues this week. These seem to have now resolved thanks to a wireless range extender *fingers crossed*.
Fixed some connection problems affecting the Skycam where the daily timelapse video had large portions missing. Also gave it a clean. Now working perfectly.
Added a weather forecast widget to the home page.
Somewhat hilariously, a curious cow grazing in the field next to the sky cam decided to knock the solar panel off with its head. Camera put back to original position, all working normally.
Sky cam now back online and uploading normally.
Connection was lost between the sky cam and router. Apologies.
BloomSky SKY2 Camera installed at station and began uploading data.
