Con's: Outdoor sensor quality chintzy, accuracy, customer service, limited history data without hooking up to a computer, set up time, no energy storage for solar, update frequency.
I purchased this weather station to replace 3 separate aging weather units to enable all weather data on a single unit.
Upon unpacking the 200WMRa I noticed all of the outdoor sensor units feel like they could break just handling them. After setting everything up indoors to test connectivity, I could not get a reading from the outside temp/humidity. The first time I called customer service they had me run through a battery of tests and instead of sending me just the one sensor (none available), I had to pack up the entire unit and send it back. Two weeks later, I again have everything set up indoors as a test; again no outdoor temp or humidity. This time I order a second unit online so that I can have it quicker and the third sensor was bad as well. Second call to customer service "please send back the entire unit...". I waited an hour and called again and luckily got someone on the phone who let me know that they did have a problem with the sensor (now discontinued) and that they could send me the redesigned sensor. This replacement sensor worked fine, but didn't have solar hookup which defeats one of the advantages of this system.
A note on the solar power on this system; it doesn't have any means of storage, so any time it's cloudy or at night you are running on batteries.
The main console unit looks nice at first glance, but really gives very little data without hooking to a computer via some VERY outdated and glitchy software.Read more ›
1. Setup - the instructions are fairly good and the order is easy to follow. It took only 90 minutes. Following the suggestions of a reviewer of another product, I first activated all the sensors on my kitchen table. Initially, the outside temperature/humidity sensor did not link to the base station. The trouble-shooting instruction said to replace the batteries - I did and the sensor linked immediately.
2. Sensor Installation - Very easy. I particularly like the alternate location of the temp/hum sensor - this allows it to be placed in a shady location so it will show air temperature without solar heating. The temp/hum sensor is on a post of a north-facing porch (on the house where it would pick up some heat) and the other sensors are in the open at the end of 100' dock.
3. Base Station Battery Back-up - I thought this was only a nice touch, but it allows me to move the base station without losing my settings.
4. Base Station Location- I have been able to move the base station to several location inside the house with no loss of sensor signals.Read more ›
I figured that by going with the best dealer, it could head off some of the problems other viewers had, and I think I was right. Ambient Weather has chat service, and even 800 phone support: this seems to be a new thing as I couldn't find it before, but their 800 phone support menu has changed.
For someone who has computer and gizmo interest this was a piece of cake to set up; just a few hangups. The rain gauge came in inop. It is a good idea to set everything up on the kitchen table so everything is definitely in range of each other to confirm interoperability. Even the rain gauge reported the water test we performed accurately, but later became totally inoperative. The base station wouldn't even count it as a device on the console. We sent it in for RMA, and another is coming. I checked to make sure replacement parts would be available, but the folks over there panicked at first and said it would be months to get them from the factory. However this was in error.
I like the setup so well I order a whole other older station just so the signals wouldn't get crossed and so I could get a rain gauge with solar charging.
The newer one went together real well, but don't waste time with any of the mounting schemes except the EZ-30-12 pole mount. That one worked very well despite the salesman's trepidation.Read more ›
