Some very recent Android models are experiencing issues. We are working to solve them.

ASCOM observing conditions standard: covering all the data available in the CloudWatcher. Also includes the Safety monitor driver in the same package.


The information read from the CloudWatcher is made available to any computer in the same network, so you can use your current Windows software, in “Remote” mode, and keep the integration with your current session control software / automation – in some cases, you can even uninstall the Windows software, as the “single line data” file is also published – suitable for CCDAP, CCDCommander, our combined ASCOM safety monitor and observing conditions driver.

It will also publish to any MQTT server, send you push messages to your smartphone (using PushOver or PushBullet), generate a JSON data file for easy integration, log data indefinitely to a USB pen, upload files to a NAS server

As the “Solo” has its own serial port, and publishes information in the local network, you’ll get rid of any USB/Serial devices and drivers issues.
