The NexSens G2-MET is a fully integrated weather station monitor. An integral cellular system provides real-time data and notifications.
The NexSens G2-MET is an integrated weather station monitoring system. The device measures, logs, and transmits wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity values directly to a personalized WQData LIVE web datacenter.
G2-MET is configured through the cellular network using a web browser. Configurable email alerts provide real-time notifications to any mobile device or computer. Historical data can be viewed, graphed, and downloaded for further analysis.
With an included solar power pack, data logger, cellular modem and weather station all pre-mounted to a 2" NPT pipe, the G2-MET can be configured and deployed in just a few minutes. The complete system simply screws onto a 2" diameter pole with NPT pipe threads. All connections are made using waterproof connectors - no wiring or complicated setup is required.
*To ensure reliable data transmission, confirm the availability of Verizon 3G service at deployment location.

Can I provide my own cellular data service?
No, in order to simplify the setup process, the Verizon cellular account must be setup by NexSens.
Is a paid subscription to WQData LIVE required to use this product?
No, the required WQData LIVE subscription cost is bundled into the Verizon cellular data price, so a separate subscription is not required.
Do I need to purchase an additional cellular antenna?
No, it comes with an SMA whip antenna that works fine in locations with good cellular coverage. If cell signal is weak in the deployment area, the included right angle adapter can be installed to increase signal strength.
Can this product be used in portable monitoring applications?
Yes, the simple design and modular nature of this product allow it to be used in permanent, semi-permanent, or portable monitoring applications.
Environmental professionals rely on powerful remote monitoring systems to record and transmit data from a variety of sensors in real time. In many applications, a complex data recorder is unnecessary and only adds to purchase, setup, and maintenance costs. For those looking to track reliable weather data, the new NexSens G2-MET Weather Station provides an innovative solution that lies at the crossroads of powerful and useable. NexSens’ innovative G2-Series redefines data collection by offering a lineup of easy-to-use products designed for specific applications, and the G2-MET is the latest addition to the rapidly growing G2 family. Designed and manufactured in the United States, the G2-MET delivers on its promise of durability and reliability.Read More
Bikes are one of the most time-tested methods of transportation. People have been riding them for centuries. But it has been only recently that folks started strapping on high-tech sensors to turn bikes into mobile labs for studying things like air pollution and the urban heat island effect. These weather bikes provide the ultimate in data collection for some studies. This is because they’re not limited to a specific area. Their riders can weave and dodge through traffic, steer down alleyways or wheel through regions with or without vegetation. There are all sorts of dynamics at play that stationary sensing devices just can’t capture.Read More
California wildfires in 2016 have been tough to contend with. And the state’s fight against blazes has been a recurring storyline in recent years. But perhaps a less-covered angle is the new ways through which government agencies and private interests have come together to protect infrastructure and life. We have reported on the expanding camera networks throughout California and other western states that are helping first responders address potential fires more quickly. But spotting wildfires as they start is just one side of the coin. There is also an urgent need to predict their movements, and weather conditions are key in that effort. Wind is especially important, as its shifts can change the course of a blaze. Humidity and temperatures influence fire dynamics too.Read More
