The sensor components looks similar to the Chinese copies based on Watson stations, which can be bought from e.g. Maplins for under £50.
The software may have some unique features but basically it's a glossy over-hyped and over-priced package.

Yes, components looks similar, but this have ethernet interface and relay outputs. If i understand , what they write, you can make condition for example. If solar iradiance is bigger then switch on pump of solar pool heating. In czech version website i found xml api (but only in czech - http://www.meteo-pocasi.cz/download-navod-manual-meteostanice/?id_file=44 ) its may be good for data transfer to my website.

That's just 'Internet of Things' controls, Netatmo can do the same and costs a fraction of the price, only downside with Netatmo only has a few sensors (Temp, Pressure, Humidity, Rain, Wind + indoor). 'Internet of things' is becoming 'a thing' at moment, and even if you don't want to use a free public service to do your device linking some of the hosting providers are now doing it e.g. AWS (https://aws.amazon.com/iot/how-it-works/).

Hi,

I found this thread, so I would like to be attributed to a few sentences.

Warioweather weather station maybe look as low cost Chinese station, but inside 
is totally different. We use a high quality sensors from Freescale, 
Honeywell, MaximIC and Sensirion. The weather station internally has LAN 
interface and you don't need buy anything else. All measured data are 
stored inside and may be synchronized with cloud or you can directly 
read through XML or MODBUS. With modbus you can read current values or min/max. 
If you lost internet connection, all data will be 
synchronized after re connection. All web pages are written in HTML5 and 
works on all devices with web browser(supported HTML5).  The Best solution is that 
you can write conditions for control or sending emails. Example: if 
windspeed is bigger than 10m/s you can close sun blind. You can connect to 
the station two external sensors for temperature or temperature/humidity. 
The station can show and save up to 50 sensor(in future can be 
changed). We have quality support and all future firmware upgrades for 
free. Last thing is w-bus interface for expanders. Further we 
are planing expanders with Input/Output interface, snow/water levels, 
storm distance etc. But it is future.

If you have any questions, do not be afraid to ask.

I'm afraid if the photos are of the actual kit it hardly looks like a substantial semi-pro station you are suggesting.
The cheap moulded plastic components definitely wouldn't survive (for example) our windy location for even 12 months.
