The rainfall amount is measured by an internal tilt cup, where the water falls out the bottom as the amount is measured. As others have noted, there is no screen to prevent debris from getting into the gauge. I simply banded a piece of fiber glass screening over it for that purpose. There is enough small particulate that gets through a screen that you periodically have to clean it anyway, but that's easy. It also means you are more likely to keep tabs on how the gauge is holding up. I installed the gauge on a post about 50' from my wifi repeater and base unit. Even with a garage and kitchen between gauge and base unit, the signal picks up just fine, most recently sending updates as I monitored it through a ferocious thunderstorm dumping rain at 2" per hour. That's pretty robust.
Netatmo sells an over-priced bracket that is basically designed for a post installation, although you can discard the post attachment to use it as a (very expensive) flat surface mount. If you are installing on a flat surface I suggest saving some money by getting a plain camera mount designed for a flat surface. Although not recommended, I installed my unit within 4 or 5' of my house (for reasons not germane here) and it still provides me with a pretty accurate estimate of how much rain has come down. The smart phone app shows current readings, and if you turn your phone horizontal you get a graph showing your gauge's history. Assuming you sign up for a Netatmo account, you can also download your historical data in spreadsheet format from their web site for your own analysis (measured in mm).
I like the system and both the smart phone and web software a lot, but I'm deducting a star from my rating for the lack of a debris screen, the omission of a basic mount, and for the lousy pictorial documentation supplied with the gauge, although with patience you can find answers for most issues on the Netatmo web site.
One; If you look hard enough you will find on the website the recommended temperature ranges otherwise you have to bring it indoors. Appears to be designed for mediterranean and equatorial climates, NOT areas that can freeze repeatedly. I live in New England so this was obviously never going to work much beyond the summer months. They could make this more clear in their website
Two, and in general, Netatmo is very poor at collecting & displaying data. I've repeatedly told them that timeframes should NOT be fiscal. A weeks worth of data should display 7 days of data. But they somehow seem to think that a 'new week' should show blank data except for the current day(, or month or year). Apparently accountants design software at Netatmo.
I like Netatmo; but I returned the rain gauge and got the wind gauge.
After 19 days I then received response: "We have carefully read your message. We hope your rain gauge is correctly working now.
Thanks for using Netatmo products. Have a nice day,
Based on the response I received, you would think they are on their way out of business. Yet they are branding new products. For this price you would expect them to be compatible with recent firmware on the Weather Station for more than 1 1/2 years.
Definitely Firmware update that caused this issue. Got a call from my father indicating he ran into the same issue. He bought the unit the same week.
Received email telling me to try everything I said I had already tried, and to make sure the Green LED Light was on. The same light I told them did not eve exist on this original unit.
Upon my reply I received this email, which was pretty inconclusive and made no sense. Had they read my email, they knew the unit was 1 1/2 years old. It seems pretty clear at this point that they do not even read the emails, and have a list of Chain Replies to send.
We have carefully read your message.
This is not normal, please contact the reseller for a return.
If you have bought it from us or the reseller can't proceed with an exchange, please send us your invoice and confirm to us your delivery address,
we will fix it if the warranty is still valid.
Netatmo did send a UPS Free Return label and indicated the following:
Send back to us the defective unit (only the defective unit) with this label.
As soon as we receive your device, we will send you a new unit.
I will update the review after receiving the new unit.
When I got ready to take the batteries out of the unit to return, I decided to test it one more time. It recognized the unit at that point.
