Overall I am quite pleased with the purchase. The sending unit was easy to install (just make sure you get the unit level for the anemometer to work correctly), and seems to be accurate. It gives a variety of useful information, such as humidity levels outdoors and indoors. The forecasting function is somewhat basic though, as it only gives cloudy to sunny and rain or no rain. It would be nice if it could connect with the national weather service to give more detailed information, but that would probably jump the price up quite a bit. Also NOAH weather alerts would ne nice, again cost considerations come in to play I would imagine. Trends over the last 12 hours for temperature, humidity, and wind speed are good to have also. Overall, I would purchase it again, as a gift for instance.
Bought this for my husband's birthday. Having sailed 27,000 blue water miles we were both into weather. Now retired, a fun addition to our new outdoor deck and garden. We placed the display on our new "L" peninsula for eating. Enjoy checking out it's readings especially in the Pacific Northwest where the weather changes a lot. If you read the instructions and follow you won't have problems setting it up. A very nice unit for the price.
We had this product for about 10 years so it was just a replacement. I was so happy to see that I could still get the same one. The remote sensor on the old one quit working so now I have two weather stations and one remote!
We live in a very rural area with uncharacteristic weather patterns not covered by NWS Doppler or radar. We do a fair amount of outdoor activities including gardening which demands weather attention. Admittaly, I needed to learn stuff to interpret the facts and that knowledge has provided invaluable in planning prior to extreme weather conditions approaching. It's fun, too.
