I am building some of the WeatherSense set ups. I have a lot of existing parts and have been printing my own cases (from your designs)
However, I was missing some of the Mini Pro Plus board. I wasn't able to find any for sale on your site, so I ordered some Grove Mini Pro LP Arduino Board boards instead. Overall they are a find substitute, however I can't figure out where to connect the 433 Mhz Radio boards. I figured I might have to connect them to a grove connector or some such. I can dig into the code, but was wondering what the JB10 connector is for.
Can you point me to how I'd connect the radio to this board?

So, the Watchdog Arduino output (JP4 on the Watchdog) to the pin labeled RESET on JP6 on the Arduino board. JP4 is 2 pins, how exactly does that get wired up?
I assume I also need to hook up power -- Can I do that using the Grove input (on the Watchdog board)? Or does that need to be on the pair of pins separately? (if so, what is the Grove plug for on the Watchdog board?)
Depending on how you set the Watchdogs timer (check your reset line. You should be using the Arduino Pin) you should see the Red LED blink ~200 seconds. That is when the watch dog is triggered. If you are patting the watchdog, then nothing will happen! Because the dog has been patted.

I am using the code from your git hub repo, so it should be "set up" however you did it.
In the attached picture it's unclear to me which is the "Arduino pin". I'm assuming either JP4 or JP2 but not clear which of the two pins should go to the Arduino reset pin. Does it matter?
Also, what happens if the code doesn't "pat" the watchdog? Should the board "power cycle"? If so, I'll test one the Lightning sensor box (when I fix the bug you acknowledged) and try turning off the pat routine and see what happens.
