I am looking into building a live streaming weather station at my home. So far I think I have a good camera and barometer picked out:https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Reolink ... 1f913e6248https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NI57C14/?t ... er-20&th=1
But more than anything, I want to make sure that there is a good audio setup to stream with the camera (the camera has audio but probably not good enough to record rain or thunder). I mean, what is the point of streaming a thunderstorm if you can't hear the thunder (or rain). This is unfortunately out of my comfort zone and I would like some suggestions from you guys and gals as to what my options are. I would like to stick to a budget of $100-150 as I'm not looking to spend more than $350 for the station total. The camera and barometer are both wifi devices that will stream data direct to the pc so a mic that has that ability would be fantastic but I am sure for best quality I will probably need something with an amp. Either way, one thing to keep in mind is that the PC hosting the stream will not be any where near where the weather station is mounting to the roof and I am not looking to run network or AV cables. I have room to mount a receiver near the server if needed though.
So I guess to sum what I am looking for:
- Sub $150
- Wireless transmission
- db range capable of recording thunder
- weatherproof (or provide weatherproof enclosure ideas)
