Product Description

The Digital Weather Station is unique in that it doesn't rely on internal sensors and circuits to display the weather and time. Instead, it connects to the Internet to retrieve the actual time and weather conditions From Weatheronline so you get the exact weather all the time. This weather station can be set up to retrieve the weather forecast information of thousands of cities throughout the world. During the setup process, you will enter your country, state and the closet city to your location. It will then receive weather conditions for a five-day period from the city you select.

Weather conditions you can monitor include the CURRENT indoor and outdoor temperatures; the day's expected high and low temperatures, and the sun's ultra-violet index. In addition, forecast predictions will be displayed for cloudy, sunny, rainy and snowy conditions or combinations such as partly cloudy, mostly sunny, sun mixed with showers and others. Time and date information includes the actual time in hours, minutes and seconds and also has two built in alarm times.

Weather data is retrieved from the Internet and updates automatically every few minutes (or with one click of your mouse), and is wirelessly transmitted through the included USB dongle to the weather station that is displayed anywhere in your house. It can be wall mounted or standalone on any flat surface with the included standing mount.

Features
- Weather data is retrieved from the Internet automatically or with one click of your mouse, and is wirelessly transmitted to the weather station that is displayed anywhere in your house
- Measures the current indoor and outdoor temperature and gives you the sun's ultra-violet index level
- Time and date as well as the weather sets automatically to the city that you pre-selected

Please note: A computer with internet connection is needed for this to retriever the forecast.

I just received this today. I have an Apple IMac. The install was not automatic. I finally got to the screen to select my state and city- it had very few cities for the State of Alabama. I had to select one from a city around 30 to 40 miles a way. Initially the forecast appeared on the unit. I do not know where it receives its forecasts but the forecast was remarkably different from the forecast by the National Weather Service, Accu-Weather, and The Weather Channel. Also, the unit did not update automatically as advertised. Maybe it would work better with a Windows computer. But for a MAC (at least for me) it was a disappointment. I returned it.

It wouldn't install properly on my windows PC. I then installed it on my wife's Mac. It was then able to download the weather-once. I think that the design is flawed. I can't say specifically if it was my flawed machine or a flaw with the system. But, it seemed that when the computer slept that the temp didn't update. That's a major flaw since I mainly wanted this so that we wouldn't have to start the computer to find out the weather. That said, the build quality was adequate. Customer support was responsive, but they couldn't fix the problem.

The USB wireless flash key that must be plugged into your computer at all times to send it updates: after the 1st time of manually installing the software via the CD that ships with the product: after that first reboot of the computer: it no longer recognizes the USB flash key. I continue to get issues with "Windows has disabled the usb key because Windows has reported problems with the device". I'm using Windows 7. That being said, since the USB key is disabled and there are no drivers to update it with, even as a tech savvy person, I can't figure out a way to make it work. Since the USB key doesn't work, it can't send updated info to the weather panel device, and I'm now seeing several days of "--" blanks instead of numbers that denote the temperatures outside.

Not user friendly, due to reasons stated above.

Doesn't really work.

It's smaller than I expected (though it clearly says 7"). It's too busy. I had something a few years ago that I really liked that had indoor/outdoor thermometer and although I knew this was web-based, I like the other better for my purposes. If you wanted it to sit by your computer on your desk, it'd be perfect. For your kitchen to check the weather before you leave home every day (my desire) -- not so good.

Worked good for about 60 days, now I get a windows message that the USB has malfunctioned. The USB supplies the weather information to the weather display, so now it is just a clock. Emailed support, their mailbox is full and not receiving any emails.

You get what you pay for, this is cheap and will not last.
