IKC's weatherPlus utilises Adcon's addVANTAGE Pro software to enable the accessing of data from any web enabled PC anywhere in the world. Pro is a powerful yet universal software package to collect, store, process and graphically display data.

IK Caldwell have a comprehensive network of weather stations in the Goulburn Valley, which are located in orchard situations. By becoming a weatherPlus user you are able to gain access to data from these stations such as rainfall, evapotranspiration, chill hours, frost alerts, selected pest degree day models and all general weather data such as rainfall, wind speed & direction, humidity, dew point and temperature.

If you have your own Adcon equipment such as weather or soil moisture equipment these devices can also become part of the IKC weatherPlus service giving you access to your data from any PC at anytime. The system also allows for the viewing of your own data as well as data from IKC's network. This allows you to expand the area from which you are collecting data without the purchase of additional equipment. For example you can view your own soil moisture data as well as evapotranspiration from IKC's closest weather station.

If you are planning to purchase Adcon soil moisture / weather monitoring equipment weatherPlus can save you money. By having your devices data coming into the weatherPlus system (subject to location) there is no need to purchase a base station / receiver. All you need to do is log in.
