WeatherTRAK February 2019 Release

The February update of WeatherTRAK Central delivers some updates and improvements that will improve your experience using the WeatherTRAK platform.

Controller Hardware Report

The new Controller Hardware report creates a list and the associated details of all the hardware associated with a controller.

If your telco provider is phasing out local 2G or 3G service in the near future, or you just want to get your controller running on the latest, fastest data standard, HydroPoint now has LTE upgrade kits available. Using the new Controller Hardware Report you can determine the modem types your WeatherTRAK LC or ET Pro3 controllers currently have installed to determine which kits you need to get your weather data and schedules even faster.

Learn more about the hardware report here.
