For price and availability please email us

The Skywatch Scientific Line BL-1000 is a rugged portable weather station designed for rapid deployment. It has been developed by and for professionals who need to make measurements of and document local weather conditions. The Swiss-made weaterstation is a valuable aid for all emergency services companies, fire brigades, incident response, police, open-air exhibitions, stage operators, construction companies and agriculture.
Compact in size, ease of use, multiple deployment options and robustness make the BL-1000 a top quality device that works reliably and may be operated within a short time by anyone who can also operate a smartphone or tablet. 


  • Visual monitoring of live measurements: The overview screen offers all important data at a glance. This makes it easy to check the measured values simply by observing the display. The  screen also indicates: Battery charge level of the BL1000 - If an alarm has occurred - Blinking red circle to indicate recording is in progress (default). 
  • Historical data stored on the smartphone: By tapping on one of the screen quadrants, you may view the measurement data history of the individual sensors (wind speed, temperature, air humidity and air pressure as a line chart). Mean values, minimum and maximum values are recorded with dashed lines. The period for which the measured data remains visible as a line chart is adjustable between 10 sec and 6 hours. The line graphs can be scaled to take a closer look at specific measurement points.
  • Two adjustable alarm levels for wind speed: The Skywatch Guard App is equipped with two wind speed alarms: warning and danger. In addition, a normal wind speed may be defined which cancels the alarms if the wind speed reduces below a defined level (if the normal wind speed is undefined any alarms created will continue until manually cancelled). The two wind speeds at which the alarm is to be triggered can be freely defined in the settings in meters per second.
  • Data-logging function and tracking: The logging function can be easily toggled on and off in the upper right corner by activating the red record button. The measurement interval is set to 1 second. As long as the logging function is switched on, the measured data is averaged every 10 seconds and then stored in a local log file on the smart device. To track the movements, the application accesses the GPS data available in almost all smart devices. If internet access is temporarily unavailable, the measurements are stored locally until they can be uploaded to the server.
  • Online data stored on Skywatch Map Server: The Skywatch BL1000 offers even more: create a free password-protected account on the Skywatch site. If the application has an Internet connection, then your current measurement data will be uploaded to the server and may be viewed on the map, viewed and downloaded as a CSV (comma-separated variable) file. This possibility enables command centre to monitor multiple spatially-separated measuring stations.
