This Weather Station is no longer available.

This Weather Station is a high quality, easy to use weather monitoring system that reads, displays and records the weather data from internal as well as external sensors.
Besides the internally measured values for indoor temperature, indoor humidity and air pressure the outdoor sensor will take data for temperature and humidity, wind and rainfall. Operation of these units is by wireless transmission to the Base Station.

After installing the “EasyWeatherPlus” program on this CD-ROM, your PC can display all indoor data as well as the weather data from the Base Station received from the external sensors. For operation, simply use the USB cable supplied and connect the Base Station to the PC.
From now on you can start to track current and history weather information at your finger tips.

What can it tell you about the weather?

  • Wind direction and speed.
  • Temperature indoors and out, there’s a comfort zone with alarms possible when you improve into the discomfort zone.
  • Rain guage
  • Barometric pressure with a history so you can see trends in this predictive measure
  • Humidity has a real role in human comfort this is shown for outside and indoors
  • Digital clock
  • Forecasts are based on barometric pressure
  • History gives you information on the last 12 hours of humidity
  • Comfort indicator
  • Daily alarm if you need to do something at the same time every day like wake up for example. And yes there is a snooze button.

Wireless connection to the Outdoor Sensor
• Press the key “CHANNEL” to select a channel. You can read the data of up to 3 sensors at one
weather station.
• Press and hold the key “CHANNEL” for 3 seconds to search for outdoor sensors.

Tips
When placing both the inside and outside units remember they are subject to interference. Try to:
• Install both the units as close as possible to each other.
• Try and avoid outside interference by not placing them near computers, TV’s or TV antenna’s etc.
• Also remember concrete walls and floors can interrupt transmissions. Try and avoid as much as possible.
• If the connection is successful initially and then fails occasionally, try to reduce the distance.
• If the connection fails and then is regained, as sometimes when it reconnects the information
is not correct, it is a good idea to take batteries out and do a manual reset .

My Weather Station has dropped out and is not receiving or from the outside unit.

  • Please try and do a complete reset by taking out the batteries from both units and then leaving them out for about five minutes.
  • Replace batteries and start from beginning again. It is a good idea to replace batteries at the same time.
  • Ensure you are using good quality Alkaline or Lithium batteries, not rechargeable, the only model that will use rechargeable batteries is WS1000 and WS3085.
  • If this does not work and it drops out again, it could be interference, not between the two units but in the airwaves.
  • All remote control devices work on 433mhz sending out a pulse, sometimes there may be something in the area that is on the same pulse rate and causes interference which will cause it to drop out.
  • It is not common for this to happen but if it does you will need to return unit if still under warranty and replace for another unit, if it is not under warranty we have the sensor unit available for sale.

How do I reset my Weather Station

  • Please refer to instruction manual.

Barometric pressure is reading lower than it should.

  • This will be because you are in an area that is above sea level, for every 1000ft above sea level you lose 20 bar. The barometer reads the local air pressure. If you read your barometer at your house on a mountain top and then carry the barometer down to the bottom of the mountain it will read a higher pressure. But, since the barometer is for predicting weather you are mostly interested in whether the reading is higher or lower than it was yesterday and it doesn’t matter that the pressure you are seeing isn’t the actual ‘sea level air pressure’.

Can I use Lithium Batteries?

  • Yes you can. We suggest using good quality Alkaline or Lithium batteries, not rechargeable, the only model that can use rechargeable batteries is WS1000 and WS3085.

My wind speed anemometer is not spinning.

  • It could be the bearing has an obstuction, pull top off and spray bearing with lubricant. If this does work, it could be seized and needs to be replaced.

One my wind cups are broken can I buy a replacement anemometer?

  • Yes, please contact our Customer Service on 1300 716 188.

Can I buy spare parts?

  • Yes, we have a range of spare parts for all our Weather Stations. Please call our Customer Service on 1300 716 188 for pricing and availability.
