Sensor: Piezoelectric rain gauge; Ultrasonic wind speed, gust speed,
and wind direction; Temperature; Humidity; Solar light intensity and UV index;
Need a console to use.

This device is fantastic. Zero mobile parts make it durable and low maintenance! I am deploying a network of them to leverage with research sensors having great preliminary results.
The only additions I would like ecowitt to consider:
- Pressure sensor
- Bird spikes on the top to prevent solar panel poop accumulation.
