Great weather station and DON'T buy a mounting brack before reading my review.
So far the weather station is working well. It was fairly easy to set up, WiFi and get it started. There is a problem connecting with Wunderground weather, with their password on my other devises, but that seems to be a Wunderground Weather problem. They do not respond to emails ether.
The instruction manual is a little hard to figure, as I am not a weather expert and the order of setup seemed to be a bit out of place, in my opinion. But that could just be me.
The WiFi setup was 100 times easier than the AcuRight Weather Station, WiFi set up, that I pretty much gave up on linking. That is the prime reason, (that and the Ambient Weather Station reviews) I did not choose AcuRight Weather Station, for my next weather station. When I got AcuRight WiFi set up , it went down and was never able to link it again. The AcuRight Station body, also yellowed from the sun and is very brittle now. It appears the Ambient station will not do that. The plastic seems to be a better quality, than the AcuRight station.
The mounting was very easy, after realizing, I could use an old Dish Network/Direct TV, dish mounting bracket and a 6 foot metal fence post from Lowe's. The dish bracket even comes with a coupler, that can attach the pole, to the mounting bracket. The dish bracket allows you to mount to a angled surface, such as an angled roof or overhang, just like the Ambient bracket, you would purchase online. The Dish bracket was free and pole was $12.95 + tax. I was able to take one off the rental house, of a friend, or you could look at local thrift stores, junk shops, flea markets, or ask a neighbor or friend, if they have one, that they are not using. That will save you about $75.00 to $150.00 dollars from ordering a mounting bracket, online. It's basically the same mounting bracket. Works perfectly.
So far I have had 2 rain events and they were very close the actual rain taken from our airport. I live close to the airport, so I can pretty much figure that it is accurate. Everything else seems to be working as intended.Read full review
