Using a weather station on Telstra air

Good morning,

 

Strange question but I don't currently have home wifi as I'm not a big internet user and just run any internet/wifi devices I need to through my Telstra mobile.

 

I have a new weather station that needs a wifi connection to upload data. I'm wondering if it is possible to connect the weather station to Telstra air using my phone Telstra air login details? 

 

Seems silly to me to get a permanent internet/wifi connection just for the weather station..

 

Cheers and any assistance would be appreciated,

Bob

It probably won't work.

First, you would need a Telstra Air hotspot to be available (very limited coverage).

Secondly, the device probably won't be able to navigate the login (it's a webpage based login, not a normal wifi username/password).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
