How to

To host a custom-branded OrangeSTEM weather station and cloud camera and have a customized website, social media pages, and presence in the OrangeSTEM app, you simply pay OrangeSTEM a one-time setup fee then an annual membership fee.

This membership fee covers all equipment, installation, support, and ongoing maintenance.

What about Cost Sharing/Co-Branding? Do you have a business partner who would like to help cover the costs of your becoming an OrangeSTEM host site? We can work with you to enable that and facilitate co-branding.

We commit to donate 10% of the OrangeSTEM's earnings to the University of Florida's Citrus Research and Education Center.

The citrus industry, critical to our state's economy, took a hard hit from Hurricane Irma in September 2017 and we hope our gesture will provide a small amount of aid to fund the scientists who are helping make sure more than 90% of the United States' orange juice comes from Florida oranges.

    We Install Your Weather Station

    OrangeSTEM weather stations are as beautiful as they are durable and reliable. They measure temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, air pressure, and rainfall (both how hard it's raining and how much has accumulated). They also measure solar radiation as well as ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The weather station is custom painted with your organization's colors and logos which will delight your visitors! The weather station transmits measured readings to OrangeSTEM continuously.
