This reliable weather station is a great way to stay informed of current conditions inside and out, even when you’re not at home. It displays a wealth of information on local conditions, but also provides the option of internet connectivity so you can monitor sensor data on your phone or tablet. Using the free La Crosse View app, you can connect your station and your iOS or Android device to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network, allowing the station to receive AccuWeather date and time updates, forecasts and more.
Through the app, you can assign photos to identify your sensor locations, share access to your data with others and even enter brief notes or reminders to appear on your station’s display. You can also expand your system by adding sensors. If you have additional Wi-Fi compatible weather stations with the La Crosse View option, you can see sensor data from multiple stations through the app. You can keep a “weather eye” on local conditions in real time, a useful feature when you want to monitor more than one residence.
This is an all-in-one weather station that records temperature, humidity, wind and rainfall. It displays indoor temperature from 0° to 37°C (32° to 99°F), outdoor temperature from -40° to 60°C (-40° to 140°F) and indoor/outdoor relative humidity (from 10% to 99%), providing min/max readings for all three. It also monitors barometric trends to forecast weather changes shown as icons on the color LCD screen. In addition, it has a wind sensor that gauges current wind speed within a range of 0 to 111 mp/h (0 to 178 km/h) and provides top speed history records, a useful and interesting feature for any avid weather watcher. It also includes a self-draining rain sensor that records in inches and millimetres from the start of a rain shower to 30 minutes after it has stopped. You can cycle through rainfall history for the last hour, 24 hours, 7 days, or month since you last reset the sensor.
Each of the three included outdoor sensors transmits with a range of 400’ (120m). You can set alerts to let you know when preset temperature, humidity, wind or rainfall levels have been reached. Through the app, you can set the station to receive information on wind direction, forecasted high/low temperature, and chance of precipitation or severe weather for the day. The station comes with a small secondary display that gives indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity readings, useful for monitoring conditions in a room or area away from the main unit.
The backlit main display screen operates on a supplied 5.0V AC adapter and power cord or back-up batteries. Two AAA, four AA and two C batteries (not included) are required for the sensors and displays.
