Top Customer Reviews
* It's WiFi connected
* Not as easy to install as you would hope. Limited directions in package.
* No mounting bolt included (apparently a camera tripod sized bolt will work)
* Rain history appears to be limited. I'm still not sure how much it rained yesterday.
* Rain history only available online, not from the app they provide for various devices
* No protective screen included to keep debris from accumulating in gauge
Our Oregon wireless rain gauge bit the dust, so we opted to try this out. The basic Netatmo weather station installed fairly easy. The Netatmo Rain Gauge was a challenge. They've tried to use minimalist Apple-like instructions, but that leaves a lot to be desired in this case. I spent some time analyzing how to reattach the two pieces after activating the batteries. I did have a bolt (not a screw) of the right size to mount this and did so on a piece of left-over composite deck material. The instructions don't say this, but it is important for the unit to be level. So, using a level, I installed it in our yard. The attachment of the unit to the wireless base station is a bit convoluted, but does work. Observation: The internal rain measuring mechanism is the same basic type used in the Oregon Rain Gauge, a self-dumping system.
Here's the suggestion: The Oregon rain gauge had a wire mesh cover to keep debris from clogging the mechanism. When I checked my Netatmo rain gauge today, a small leaf had settled in on the top "port." I put the wire mesh cover from the Oregon on the Netatmo to eliminate this problem in the future.
Update: The display on the rain gauge doesn't give good historical rain measurements. They use a chart which shows, for example, a rain accumulation of over .394 but less than the boundary above, which is not listed (I've uploaded a screenshot of the display). In other words, you can't tell how much it rained yesterday - just an approximation. The software is incredibly clunky. I'm dropping my review a another notch because of that.
I contacted Netatmo about the historical rain data situation and received the following: "Data can't be retrieved directly in this format. You will have to save the data in excel/csv format from the settings, then work on your excel/csv file to get such data."
The Oregon gauge spoiled us. You just pressed the "Prior Day" button and it showed the exact amount of rainfall. Press it again and get the day before that and so on, up to 10 days. Hard to believe a high-tech internet-connected rain gauge like Netatmo can't provide this simple information.
I put a metal screen over the top of the cup to prevent leaves and other junk from clogging the measurement reading.
I would recommend to anyone using this Netatmo to use lithium energizer batteries. These devices use very little battery power, so batteries can be in place for a year or more, and many alkaline batteries will leak.
After lots of measurements with official rain gages, I have set my calibration to 0.091 fl oz (for USA people). This setting has been darn spot on vs my official analog measurements.
I've also been applying RainX to help the water droplets fall into the measurement cups about every 3 months. Seems to work great, and doesn't effect the plastic after 4 applications.
Manufacturer recmmends not to leave the rain sensor in freezing temps. Will be leaving this out for the 2014-15 winter and if Amazon allows, will report back.
Bottom line, I had to calibrate my rain gage, but after that I am extremely happy with my purchase. I am a certified storm spotter and a weather geek.
Update Aug 2015: I left the rain gage out all winter and it got -20F many nights and no harm to the rain sensor. Still working like it should.
I do wish it came with a mount, but there are mounts available for a few dollars on Amazon. A CCTV mount fits just fine. I had the proper size bolt at home, so I simply attached it using a small L-bracket and that bolt.
