On January 31st, 2023, the AmbientTool App will be discontinued.

The AmbientTool App allows you to connect the Ambient Weather WS-2902 Weather Station Console, versions sold from December 2016 to May 2018, to your Wi-Fi router and the internet during the initial setup.

If your WS-2902 console disconnects from Wi-Fi for any reason and needs to be reconnected after the app discontinuation date of 01/31/2023, you will no longer be able to reconnect your console to the Ambient Weather Network (AWN).

This does NOT affect any WS-2902A, WS-2902B, and WS-2902C consoles purchased AFTER May 2018. These consoles utilize the Awnet App for the setup process. Moving forward, the WS-2902D will no longer require an app for internet connectivity, allowing any user to connect using an internet browser.

If you own one of the affected consoles, it will continue to work until you have to update any Wi-Fi settings; this may include a firmware update or after resetting your console. Once the AmbientTool App is sunset and you need to perform one of the above activities, your console will still showcase your weather station readings. However, the console will stop reporting your personal weather station dashboard information to AWN, including data collection and tracking.

To maintain a connection to AWN, you will need to upgrade to the Ambient Weather WS-2902D Console BEFORE January 31st, 2023. To purchase a a replacement console through the AmbientTool Upgrade Program click here:

Ambient Weather is offering a limited-time discount for those affected by this app discontinuation. You will be eligible for a $35 console rebate through the end of 2022.

Please see our support page for details on the app discontinuation and claiming your rebate.

Fix it!

Loved this app and my weather first. Now it seems that instead of fixing a problem for us that have the original they just simply want us to buy a new weather station and use the new app. Not cool or good service in my mind. The weather station still works great just will no longer hook to my WiFi. Really wish they would fix this!!

Great Weather Stations and app

I now have two of the Ambient Weather stations, and they are great. When I got my second station set up it took me only about 5 minutes to connect to the app. As I discovered on the first station, it’s important to turn off the 5ghz radio on you router while your connecting the station to WiFi. Once it’s setup you can turn the 5ghz radio back on. The instructions do tell you this, but somehow I missed it on the first setup. Second time was a piece of cake!

App makes hardware junk

Had the Ambient Weather WA-2902b for 2.5 years and stayed synced to WiFi with no problems. We recently switched routers and it is literally impossible to connect without reverting back to iOS 10 or earlier. App is SO out of date and must be used to set up the weather station connectivity that you lose functionality. Hardware still connects to the display but remote viewing is never going to happen again. The app will also not allow you to change the SSID of the router. It defaults to “WiFi” and is uneditable, so you’ll never connect to WiFi.
