How to Mount an Ambient Weather Station

An Ambient Weather Station is a great addition to monitor what’s going on outside.  There are many different models to choose from and most will enable reporting to sites like Weather Underground and WeatherCloud.  A few can even populate a database on a PC to populate your own website. This isn’t an article about the capabilities of an Ambient Weather Station (although it might be fun to write).  This is a mount site, so that’s what this article is about.  Let’s get on with the Ambient Weather Station mount discussion.

Tablet Mounts for Fire Trucks

Tablet mounts for fire trucks have some unique requirements versus one for a passenger automobile or SUV.  They need to be rugged and will likely need an expandable holder that will accommodate a thick case along with durability necessary for constant removal and insertion of the tablet.  Unlike what might work with a car, the attachment probably needs to be something other than a typical suction cup mount. When it comes to tablet mounts for fire trucks, it’s not unusual to see a bolt on or clamp mount.  So that’s what we’re going to concentrate on.  Heavy duty tablet mounts … Read more

Mounts for the Wyze Cam Pan

Wyze Labs announced their first pan and tilt camera in late May.  The Wyze Cam Pan is a great camera offered at a bargain price that rivals many cameras selling for much more.  Being a pan and tilt, this camera covers a lot more territory than traditional security cameras so the mounting requirements are a little different in that you want to eliminate anything that will block the 360 degree view.

Phone and GPS Mounts for a Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester turns out to be a fairly easy vehicle to mount a smartphone or GPS.  A tablet is a bit more challenging.  It’s a well designed interior without a lot of surprises. Similar to the Subaru Outback, the Forester doesn’t have a lot of radical interior curves, uses standard shaped vents and has some decent dash space.  This will make it easy to suggest some good mounts for smartphones and a GPS.  A tablet is almost impossible to comfortably mount.  The interior is simply too small and we don’t think it’s possible to mount a tablet and be … Read more
