Ratings and Reviews
Very Good App - But Has One Major Flaw
This is an excellent weather station app even if you don’t own a weather station. One of the best things for me is that once you lock into your selected station, the app gives you the data for that station regardless of what is going on with other stations in the area. Other apps will begin eliminating access to a station because its data doesn’t conform to what their software algorithm says is reasonable.
I have one gripe though…
The rainfall accumulation is automatically reset for event, day, week, and month but not for the year. After month is “total” which is the accumulated rain since the weather station came on line. What kind of continuing metric is that? It would be nice if the app had the option to reset the total manually so that if someone wanted a “from the beginning of time” reading they could have it but the rest of us could see what has happened this year.
Rain rate at a glance
That was something my previous Accu Weather
Station didn’t have which I’m not doing business with anymore because I was forced to buy a new component, after the fact, that allowed me to continue to see the weather on my phone.
If I want to know how bad the weather is outside I just glanced at the console and see the rain rate. I also like seeing the solar watts.
Bluetooth communication between the weather station and the console seems robust!
Nice Device But Difficult to Set Up
I researched several home weather stations and found this one a good value for the money. It records numerous parameters and has a nicely laid out dashboard for the computer and a easy to read base station (albeit a bit too touch sensitive).
My biggest complaints are that it is very difficult to set up to wifi and it is nearly impossible to set up as a station connected to the internet weather services such as Weather Underground.
Though customer service is polite and helpful, I have spent a lot of time on the phone with them trying to connect my unit to wifi whenever it gets moved or falls offline for some reason. They have never been able to help me connect the unit to the internet weather networks.
The system needs to be able to work with 5G as well as 2.4G wifi networks (which it does not). It needs to be more plug and play.
