MountainAir created a new topic ' Weather Station for INDI' in the forum. 2 months ago

Does anyone have any recommendations for an INDI-compatible weather station for an observatory?  I am just now beginning my research, so I'm starting with zero knowledge.  I could run a MiniPC with ASCOM as well, but it would still need to be accessible via KStars.

I am looking for an automated solution that will park the scopes and close the roof if consistent cloudcover/rain/lightning/wind is detected.  My hope is to ultimately automate this small roll-off-roof observatory using KStars.  I'm trying to play with the Simulators in KStars, and I'm looking up some of those products I see in the drivers list, but any pointers to a good solution would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.
