Q: I am in South Australia and I am having trouble setting up the Time Zone
- Set the time zone to +9.
- Then set the clock manually through the screen to your time.
- When you come to the SYNC option, turn this to OFF and the clock will not sync with the time server.
- This will stop the auto update every 12 hours, putting the time out again.
- Using the steps above, manually set for daylight savings time when required.
I have had this weather station for about 18 months and overall it does the job okay. I have two issues with the system. The first is to do with rainfall. Most of the time it gets rainfall right but when I get a very rainy day it tends to play up. Multiple times now it has suddenly jumped up by 60 to 70 mm which then distorts the days rainfall significantly. I certainly didn't get 60 mm of rain in 2 minutes or less when the device reported this on at least 4 or 5 occasions. The other small issue I have is that the device does not remember the Wi-Fi settings and every time the Wi-Fi router is turned off you have to reconnect the weather station. Every other device I have automatically reconnects, this just seems cheap and is annoying as the setup tacks a few minutes on the mobile phone each time and sometimes you forget to do it and only realise later that you are offline.
Other than these issues, the device is good and keeps track of our weather through Wunderground.
Thank you so much for leaving your review. A big jump in rainfall readings usually points to very strong wind or gusts that might shake the unit. The rain gauge works on a seesaw principle, so when the unit wobbles in the wind it is more likely to tip over the seesaw and record a reading. We will investigate the Wi-fi connection issue that you described.
Well the weather analysts will tell us the when to water the plan and when not to
Hi, I installed this today and it now seems to work okay, but the instructions are confusing. I followed the instructions step by step and oriented the sensor thingy to the North, as instructed, THEN the instructions told me I should've pointed it to the south instead in the southern hemisphere. Anyway I turned it around to point South, then one lot of instructions say if the latitude is negative it should be entered as positive since the thing was pointing South. BUT I'd already registered it online and there was no such instruction there. So I've left the online latitude as negative, but it's as confusing as anything. Another annoyance is the batteries in the sensor. When time comes to change those it'll be very awkward since the batteries will drop out while trying to insert them in the bottom chamber. This could've been better arranged to make field-change of flat batteries more convenient. Then there's the button battery in the main console - it has no child-resistant protection as the cover comes off easily and is easily accessible to young children and that's a clear and present DANGER to toddlers according to the ACCC. Then there's the Wunderground weather site on the computer... Trying to find MY PWS there is not straightforward. It says I'm in Sydney, neglecting to mention the suburb!!! And trying to find MY details online is a black art in itself. I can set the location of other favourite cities and towns and switch to them ok but if I want to come to MY home PWS there's no entry for Home. I eventually found a direct link but not in the web interface. Most unhelpful. Anyway it's in now and I got it working but it took way longer than it should've. Not looking forward to replacing worn out batteries in the future. I'll have to re-pair the devices. Not sure how long the button battery will hold the data on the console either when the power's out. No specs on that and the instructions don't seem to indicate that there's a button battery charge indicator anywhere. One other annoyance is there's no automatic daylight saving time setting. My EST is +10 h, but in daylight savings it's +11 h from GMT. Have to change this manually it seems... What are computers and time servers for???
So I could've been happier. But I'm not thrilled, which is why I've downgraded the rating to 4 stars.
I had read a lot of reviews and wanted to have a unit that I can connect to the internet. This weather station looked really good regarding the specs and it was inexpensive. I have had it now for 7 months. I wanted to wait before I write a review. So far I am impressed by it. Does everything I wanted and it seems like a good entry wifi weather station.
I bought this weather station about a month ago and love it. The weather station links to a global weather site that adds your data to it. It was easy to set up, the instructions were clear, and when I wasn’t sure how to get it to go online the Holman site had all the answers.
