How wind affects your experience of the weather is made crystal clear in this feature packed instrument. It measures wind chill and wind speed up to 200 mph in addition to the basics; roof mount anemometer and thermo/hygro sensor are included. With built in atomic clock, you can rely on accurate time as well as set weather alarms for multiple elements simultaneously (includes programmable ice alarm).
Weather & Wind Station with Built-In Atomic Clock shows the effects of wind on the weather with wind speed and wind chill monitoring 200 mph weather station includes additional important weather information, such as temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and forecasts for a seven day forecast Set to the U.S. atomic clock so it always has the current accurate time and provides a seven day forecast Digital weather and wind station works with a roof mount anemometer and a thermo/hygro sensor to provide accurate information Includes a feature to set weather alarms so you can be prepared for inclement weather
Comments about Product: Actually installing the 3 units was fairly easy. Adjusting the features was somewhat difficult. I'm fairly satistied because the feature I'm most interested, and why I purchased it, was for the anamometer, wind speed indicator. I still haven't been able to set the pressure/altitude correctly. Mostly, the set up was a matter of experimentation, because the instructions were not specific enough.
Comments about Product: We just installed it and it did everything it said it would. However, it is hard to figure out how to change from the metric system to the US system for altitude number. Other than that, it tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the weather conditions. We especially wanted the wind readings due to where we live, we have always been curious to know the wind speed. Installation couldn't have been easier.
Comments about Product: Programming can be very complicated. There are lots of bugs and it is not always clear how USR and UTC and all of the other parameters affect each other. The manual is too important, changing batteries resets the unit and it takes an hour to reprogram particulars.
On the bright side, the sunrise and sunsets are accurate...once you have the right time zone, UTC, USR, and DST!
Comments about Product: The unit was never put into use. Wind detecting apparatus could not be attached, no matter what was done. Surely, the attaching hex screw could have been made larger to ease the assembly. This change would greatly improve usage. Unit was returned.
Comments about Product: This was purchased this past Christmas as a gift for my son and his wife who live in Kansas. It was chosen over others for the wind speed feature; important in windy Kansas. Son reported it was easy to put in operation, even including installing an antenna on a rooftop, and they are happy with it.
Comments about Product: I had a little difficulty programing. I do not belive the wind speed is accurate it will not show a wind over 9 mph. The local radio station was reporting speeds of 25 to 30 with gusts of 40mph
Comments about Product: The product is terrific for checking the wind strength and overall weather conditions in open country before heading for outdoor work. It is easy to read and pretty consistant. The distance between sensors and the main unit is a closer than I would want, but the results are SO worth it!
Comments about Product: Not bad but certainly not user friendly. Poor instructions leave you praying that you never have to reset the unit. Temp is pretty accurate and humidity close enough. Nice toy but if you are a fanatic for dead accuracy - keep looking. Bring patience to set it up.
Comments about Product: your product does not work as advertised. Unable to get reception from remote stations at more than 50 feet. sometime more than 10 feet. Multiple battery changes and resets with no improvement. POOR QUALITY WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS. configuration is VERY DIFFICULT due to small font on device screen and multiple confusing steps to achieve the setting you want. If you have to reset to try to get remote stations to read you lose all other settings you have entered.
I would not recommend your product or your company to anyone. In fact I will tell people not to do business with you on my web site.
Comments about Product: The wind and weather station I purchased is not at all user friendly. The control to access minimum and maximum temps and wind speeds is on the back of the unit. The wind speed feature does not give the average wind speed, only the average wind gust and maximum wind gust. I'm not sure the gust figures are very accurate. Sorry, but the station doesn't live up to the write-up about it!
Comments about Product: I use the unit to give me the usual indoor and outdoor weather/wind speed information. I have an extra sensor providing similar information for my attached solarium; this has allowed me to grow tomatoes to the end of January in a Zone 4 region!
It is a bit difficult to set up the unit to get the most out of atmospheric pressure features - probably my ignorance is part of the problem.
Comments about Product: I use the weather station to check the weather outside of my house. The display contrast isn't the greatest. Not quite as good as the one it replaced. Other than that I love it!
