Product Description

Advanced Weather Station with Atomic Time

straight-silver
Finally a reliable and detailed weather forecast! With Oregon Scientific’s latest Advanced Weather Station you can plan your day, your outfit, and more. You will not only know if it is a sunny or rainy day, you will also receive weather warnings and humidity levels. Is it a good day for a picnic? Maybe you will choose to ride your bike to work after all. Or perhaps it’s best to wait for the ice to thaw on the roads, pop some popcorn and curl up with some hot chocolate and movie or good book. The display also shows the date and the time, both of which are updated automatically. You can set up multiple sensors, enabling you to monitor indoor and outdoor temperatures, as well as specific rooms such as wine cellars. It also features a calendar and an EL Backlight for viewing in low light conditions. The Oregon Scientific Advanced Weather Station can help you manage your environment and enjoy your day, and life, to the fullest.

Product Features

Weather Forecast: Forecast the weather 12-24 hours in advance using graphical icons
Graphic icons indicate the type of weather to expect. When you first wake up, or haven’t had that first cup of jo, sometimes pictures are the way to go.

Temperature: Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity using wireless sensor
Numbers don’t lie; weather guy on the news? He means well, but... The large numeric display here will tell you the facts. No bad suits. No bad jokes. Just the temperature. Thank you very much. The weather station monitors indoor and outdoor temperature from up to 3 remote locations (additional sensors sold separately). Check out conditions in the garden, the wine cellar, or the baby's room. How hot or cold it is out there? Or in there? This can be helpful when the AC is on full blast during those hot summer months, or when it’s toasty inside despite below zero temps in the heart of winter. We live in the information age... this is good information.

Humidity: Displays three levels of temperature and humidity trends (Rising, Steady or Falling)
Know more than just hot or cold... this reading allows you to know the quality of the temperature, which can make all the difference in the world. Like, “Do I need an umbrella?” And, “Will the snow be any good today?” Or, “Just how sweaty will I be?”

Moon Phase: Moon phase icon
Laugh if you want to... Make werewolf jokes if you must. But the moon has an effect on us whether or not you are into horoscopes. It makes the oceans move for example. That’s sort of a big deal. A full moon can make for a romantic stroll. No moon means bring a flashlight. Plan ahead. Impress your friends and neighbors by knowing your lunar cycles. It’s kinda cool. Admit it.

Warnings: Displays weather warning messages (Storm, Wind, Fog, Frost, Heat)
Get accurate up to date warning messages for extreme heat, high winds, storms, fog and frost. Being prepared is half the battle. By knowing what’s up ahead you can plan appropriately. For example, Auntie Em could have said, “No, Dorothy, this is NOT a good time to take Toto for a walk.”

Atomic Clock: Sets itself to the US Atomic Clock and adjusts for DST
Sounds... explosive? While it won’t blast off, it will display in either 12- or 24- hour format and it is self-setting. It also has a time zone offset feature and a month/day calendar. So not only will you know what the day is going to be like, you will know what day it is.

Customer Reviews

It was easy to set up and works great!
Carl S. Wilson
The large display makes it especially easy to see the readings and on top of that, it has a back light!
Dieselboy
Atomic clock does not stay set at correct time.

I've had this unit since mid-2007, so about 3-4 years. The original sensor that came with the unit was left at an old apartment, I bought a replacement which I again left at an apartment... recently I bought 2 new sensors which led me to leave a review.

I have the main unit in my bedroom on the nightstand (2nd floor of house), one outdoor sensor mounted to the rail of our deck outside, and one outdoor sensor in the basement. The basement sensor is about as far from the main unit as possible, opposite end and corner of the house and down 2 floors... there is apparently no problem with receiving the signal, I use it to keep an eye on the temp (but mostly humidity) in our basement as I'm running a dehumidifier and trying to keep the humidity low to discourage creepy crawlies from maintaining residence.

Good--
- Seems to work well enough
- Good sized display
- Easy on the eyes when you hit the "LIGHT" button at night to see the time or temps (i.e. not too bright!)
- Can read up to 3 remote sensors
- Dead simple setup of the unit and the remote sensors

Bad--
- Ice Alert is ridiculously bright, I opened the unit and broke the bulb, seriously, ice is below 32*, done, I don't need a lighthouse beacon shining in my eyes
- It is a bit hard to read w/o the backlight on, this gets compounded as the batteries weaken

Misc--
- Someone said that their outdoor sensors failed when wet? My solution was to put electrical tape all around the seam of the outdoor sensor, it lasted for 2 years directly in the elements
- It needs (3) AA batteries for the main unit and (2) AAA batteries for the remote sensors

If you want something to show you the temp/humidity, this is perfect, buy it and don't give it a second thought.

I've only had this weather station for a week, but I already love it. Very easy to use. Had it setup in a couple of minutes. Sensor reception is excellent. I mounted the sensor on the back wall of our house next to a window. The station is located on the lowest level of our house (partially underground) with several walls between it and the sensor and they work perfect. The unit has an excellent back light that is orange in color like a midsummer sunset and illuminates the entire screen well.

The only slight disappointment for me is the poor reception for the Atomic clock signal. I am located on the east coast in eastern PA and with the unit in the lower level of the house on the east side, it just doesn't receive the signal. Not a huge deal, I just set the clock manually. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a well rounded unit that provides a nice amount of data for a great price.

I received the Advanced Weather Station with Atomic Time for Christmas. It worked well for a couple of months at which point the outside sending unit ceased communicating with the base station. I changed the batteries to no avail. I changed the location of the sending unit. Finally I called tech support at Oregon Scientific. After being on hold for 40 minutes I got an agent. He was not helpful, insisting that I only needed to reset the unit. I had already done that a number of times. The rep then said he'd send me an email detailing what to do. It never arrived. I was tempted to just write it off and buy a different unit but that doesn't sit well with me. I can not recommend these units. When they work they are fine but they will stop unexpectedly and you will find it difficult to impossible to get any satisfaction from Oregon's tech department.

The good news:

1. Accurate outdoor sensor.

Put it next to base unit and both show almost the same temperature and humidity. The humidity reading fluctuates more on the sensor, but it's only been 3-4 points off at maximum, often much less, only a point or two. The temperature reading is just about spot on--almost identical or less than a degree difference. As another reviewer noted, your outdoor sensor may or may not be as good as ours (although we now have a N of 2). Note also: this is just testing inside with the sensor sitting next to the base.

2. Large numbers for outdoor temperature and humidity.

3. Solidly built.

4. Amber backlight is great; vivid, clear.

5. Temp-humidity screen on outdoor sensor.

6. Generally good layout of information on the screen.

7. Reset of the min/max every 24 hours (according to the specs). This spares the owner from having to manually reset it to monitor min/max. (But this has a downside, too--see below.)

Now the bad news:

1. The display is hard to read!

The screen is highly reflective, the background is dark, and the contrast low. So, one has to deal with spurious reflections--any light from windows or lights that are on shows up--and those interfere with reading the display. The lack of contrast makes it harder to read the numbers, especially the indoor ones that are smaller. Contrary to the picture here and on the Oregon Scientific web site, the screen is not a pale white-gray or white-blue against which the numbers stand out, but a dull green-gray color that overwhelms them. (We're checking with OS to see if there's a problem with our unit or if it's just designed this way and the photos are mis-presenting reality.
