The WS-1171B is Loaded with Features
The Display Console
Ambient Weather's most popular desktop weather station is packed with features at a reasonable price.
The indoor console displays barometric pressure, temperature and humidity levels indoors and outside, dew point, barometer, time and date, and shows daily weather forecasts that help you dress for the weather.
The main display receives temperature and humidity data from the included wireless remote sensor.
The weather station’s main console displays a wide array of information in an easy-to-read format on a large LCD, including indoor and outdoor temperature, indoor and outdoor humidity, dew point, relative and absolute barometric pressure, radio controlled date and time, alarms, weather forecasting, and a barograph.
The attractively thin console can be placed on a desktop or mounted to a wall. The clock also features an alarm with snooze and temporary backlight for nighttime viewing.
The Wireless Sensor
The wireless sensor installs just about anywhere (300 feet line of sight, 100 feet under most conditions) to report on conditions in the greenhouse, garage, wine cellar or baby’s room, places where proper temperature and humidity levels are crucial.
The sensor includes an LCD display that displays the current temperature (°F) and humidity (%).
The console only supports one remote sensor.
Wireless Outdoor Temperature
Wireless sensor installs inside our outside and reports temperature to the console (°F or °C).
Wireless Outdoor Humidity
Wireless sensor installs inside our outside and reports relative humidity to the console (%).
The console calculates dew point based on outdoor temperature and humidity.
The handy forecast icons let you know at a glance if it’s going to be rainy, cloudy, or sunny 24-48 hours in advance, based on barometric pressure trends.
Temperature is measured within the display console (°F or °C).
The indoor temperature can be optionally calibrated to provide the utmost accuracy.
Relative humidity is measured within the display console (%).
The indoor humidity can be optionally calibrated to provide the utmost accuracy.
Absolute and relative barometric pressure are measured and displayed (inHg or hpa). Relative pressure is corrected to sea-level.
The pressure history chart or barograph allows you to track pressure trends over a 24-hour period.
Radio Controlled Date and time
Equipped with a radio controlled clock, time is set automatically via radio and in synch with the United States atomic clock (WWVB) for utmost accuracy. Supports all 24 time zones around the world, and daylight savings time.
All digital measuring devices have a published margin of error due to manufacturing tolerances. To account for these tolerances, the WS-1171A provides for optional temperature and humidity calibration for the utmost accuracy.
Minimum and maximum visual and audible alerts are available for each measured parameter. Also includes time of day alarm.
Minimum and Maximums
Minimum and maximum records for each parameter that can be manually reset on an individual basis.

I made a video review if you want to see it.
The unit clearly displays everything you want to know about your Inside & Outdoor Weather, tendencies & time. I find that if I prop it up completely vertically (the built-in Stand is set to hold it at an angle), the display info looks darker and is much easier to read (to me anyway).
I had big discrepancies between my In & Outdoor Humidity readings when I kept the Outdoor Sensor and the Display Unit indoors to try to validate the readings. I figured that everything should be the same as long as I kept a 10 foot separation between the Units in the same Room. Not so. Apparently, Humidity is a tough one, and also varies between Indoors and Outdoors.
I also set the Ambient beside my older, and much larger, La Crosse Weather Station to compare results, and they were very close. I agree with the others that the La Crosse Units are a "bear" (term substituted) to deal with for both setup and when the batteries need to be replaced, but (unlike the other Reviewers) otherwise I have been very satisfied with my La Crosse.Read more ›
The atomic time took a day or so to sync initially but has been working consistently since then.
A minor issue was the screws for the sensor mount were not the greatest (heads stripped while mounting) and I replaced them with some of my own, but that was my fault for being impatient and not predrilling the mounting holes.
As far as day-to-day performance goes, I have been checking temperature, humidity, and pressure against nearby (a few blocks away) weather underground readings on a daily basis and it tracks extremely well.
Humidity is probably the most variable. As indicated in the instructions, the humidity can be off at the high end (above 85% or so) but I dont consider this to be a big deal since the only time that occurs is when there is actual precipitation. Under conditions of near or actual precipitation, I find it can be off by around 10% in the 70-80% range, but this is measured against weather underground readings which are likely to be subject to local variation during actual precipitation anyway, so I cant really determine the actual inaccuracy of the sensor under those conditions.
The low end seems pretty good. Right now it is getting very cold and dry in the northeast and the difference in personal comfort between 15% and 30% indoor humidity is pretty significant, so having accurate report in that range has been very useful.
Temperature both indoor and outdoor has been spot on.Read more ›
