It is all serial and takes a bit of programming to make it work. Another thing I like about it is that I got a wind vane, anemometer, 2 humidity sensors, 2 temperature sensors, water level sensor, and interface for a total price of about 400$us TOTAL. Definitely not for everyone but appealed to my tinkering nature.
Can you provide us with the brand name, please. I, for one, would like to investigate this solution. Thanks.
