Year Founded:

An employee-owned company, RainWise Inc. manufactures professional grade meteorological equipment for consumer, enterprise, and industrial applications. RainWise incorporated in 1974, deriving the company's name from our original product, the remote reading tipping bucket rain gauge. Tipping bucket technology is now the industry standard, and just one of the many unique product designs that RainWise has contributed to the advancement of weather monitoring; in 1981 we again led the world by developing the 1st digital weather station! We are excited about being at the forefront of weather monitoring technology, and are committed to working closely with the emerging renewable energy market to deliver premier wind and solar related equipment.

Our selection of more than 50 rain and temperature gauges, monitors, sensors, and related software are proudly made right here in the United States, and are known for their exceptional durability and fine accuracy. In 1991 RainWise was awarded the coveted GSA status, making our company's products available to over 700 Government agencies. RainWise is also proud to have the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration among our many clients. Here at RainWise we strive to provide our clients not only with exceptional products, but with an exceptional customer experience. We are honored to have earned a reputation for the best customer service in the industry, founded on lifetime product support, a generous warranty, and free software upgrades.

All of our products are proudly made right here in the United States, and are backed by free software upgrades and lifetime support.

RainWise Inc. is a privately owned company incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1974. The name was derived from the original product, a tipping bucket remote reading rain gauge.

In 1981 the company moved to Bar Harbor, Maine and the development of a new line of electronic consumer weather instrumentation began with the WS-1000, the first digital 'consumer' weather station.

In 1985 the company built a new manufacturing/showroom facility in downtown Bar Harbor. The success of the consumer based instrument line led to the development of an Industrial product line in 1991. The Industrial equipment quickly became recognized for its customizable configuration, NIST traceability and an unheard of at the time 5 year warranty.

RainWise has continued to supply innovative consumer products and turn-key Industrial systems. The General Service Administration awarded RainWise with a GSA contract in 1991. Under this contract the company's products are available to over 700 Government agencies.

Today, RainWise is a proud, employee-owned company which continues to produce American-made products. The prevailing attitude of each and every employee is consistent throughout...make the best product to the best of your ability and stand behind it. The product will and always has spoken for itself.

Made in the USA and committed to supporting small business.
RainWise is proud to say that our products are American made. We use no discounted, imported, or disadvantaged labor in the production of any of our components. Instead, every aspect of our production process is handled by our dedicated, experienced team of instrument professionals in our Bar Harbor, Maine headquarters.

In this era of globalization and international outsourcing it has become increasingly difficult for American small businesses to remain competitive. Outsourcing is an unavoidable part of modern manufacturing. We don't feel that this means we have to go offshore, instead we attempt to support US small businesses whenever possible. This philosophy has made it possible for us to directly support over a dozen small businesses. These companies include marketing specialists, contract manufacturers and plastics manufacturers. Our claim to be made in America doesn't just mean we do final assembly in the US. All of our assembly work is done in the USA.


RainWise offers a full 2 year warranty on all of our consumer products and a 5 year warranty on our industrial products. We also offer a fully comprehensive 5 year extended warranty on our consumer weather stations. These industry best warranties are a testament to our quality.


Demands placed by new federal regulations on fire, police, and other emergency personnel have increased over the recent years. To meet your budget and at the same time ensure you are using the latest weather instrument technologies, trust RainWise. Our GSA Preferred status means we have the knowledge and experience to help municipal agencies choose and use the best equipment.


When you order your weather instruments from RainWise via our website, we offer free shipping* to your home or business located anywhere in the continental United States, all the time. This is not a gimmick or a 'limited-time offer'- instead, it's a standard policy RainWise is pleased to offer our customers as a thanks for your giving RainWise the chance to be your weather products supplier.
