Add locations, alerts, and users

  • Add assets and locations as points, polylines, or polygons for complete coverage.

  • Create asset-specific severe weather alerts to meet or exceed industry standards for safety and compliance.

  • Add users and create contact lists to get the right alerts to the right people at the right time.

  • Add more assets, alerts, and users as needed.

Real-time lightning alerts

Real-time alerts activate when lightning occurs near your asset. You can configure three levels of alerts (Information, Warning, and Alarm) and set a specific alert distance, clear time, and notification list for each level. Active alerts and all-clear notifications are sent automatically by email and SMS message to your notification lists.

Lightning forecast alerts, powered by Xcast

Xweather offers the unique ability to forecast lightning risk up to 60 minutes in advance. A forecast alert activates when lightning is forecast to occur near your asset. You can choose how far ahead of the forecast to activate the alert in 10-minute intervals up to 60 minutes in advance.

Lightning forecast alerts are powered by Xcast, our enhanced forecasting technology that uses data from Vaisala sensors to significantly improve short-term accuracy.

Maximize safety, minimize downtime

Improve your situational awareness and make operational decisions with confidence with automated multichannel alerts and all-clear notifications.

Real-time alerts for any location

All-in-one solution with no capital costs
