Product Description

Product Description

The Solar Weather Station with Weather Alert, combines a wireless weather station with a radio controlled clock and calendar. This wireless weather station brings you all the vital weather information

But by far its best feature is its clever solar panel which helps make the most out of the sun’s natural power to help your lithium batteries last longer. Absorbing and storing power during the day, it switches over to the batteries power source at night, ultimately increasing the life-span of the battery

Quick feedback after 48 hours of use approx:

1. Much larger than you think, but being that makes the display easily readable, that is no bad thing.

2. Well made, much nicer styling and button feel than the white models still being sold online and in the shops.

3. Display is easy to read, as mentioned in 1.

TIPS

1. It is easy to miss, but ensure you use an unbent paperclip to set the timezone, C/F etc inside the battery compartment, else you may end up fiddling with the front buttons which cannot be used to set those preferences. (This is in the manual, but easy to miss.)

2. If you are only using one remote sensor (IE, the one that comes in the box), if you don't want the ice alert LED to flash, set the switch inside the remote sensor battery compartment to channel 2 or 3 - and then also ensure you press the UP arrow key on the front of the main unit until the appropriate channel number appears on the top left of the display. I omitted to do this at first and wondered why I wasn't getting an OUTside temp reading. As they say, RTFM!

3. Avoid placing either the main unit or remote sensor anywhere where false temperature readings may be taken. IE, under a lamp that emits heat, on a sunny side facing wall outside etc. A neutral location is best.

WANTS

It would be great if Oregon Scientific could make a low cost Internet connected sensor so one could crowd source IN and OUTside temperatures. This would be interesting at the very least and make for accurate (live) weather reports.
Perhaps they already do? I'll take a look after publishing this review.

This is an awesome weather station considering how cheap it is. It works just fine with one sencor at 12 meters away.
I would recomend it to anyone.

Excellent product.Very good quality and it does what it says.Easy to set up,very accurate,nice looking and easy to read.One gripe though,given the recent cold weather,the green flashing ice warning light,is rarely off.A bit annoying at times,The price AMAZON were selling this item for,is very good.

I bought this unit to replace a previous different model from another manufacturer who had since gone out of business. The unit is an attractive piece on the shelf. It does all I expected of it, but the backing does not allow the clock to be seen clearly in the ambient light I use at night, and I can't get the ice warning light to stop blinking despite following the instructions on how to achieve that. The latter does not irritate me enough to downgrade my rating and it does of course stop when the outside temperature gets above 3 degrees

This is not the first Oregon weather station, it is infact the fourth one and this is the best one yet, and the outdoor sensor, works on my previous weather stations and my old sensors work with this new weathe station. It has a good back light and good size display. Would recommend this weather device to anyone who wishes to buy an economic weather station. One thing you should ignore is how quickly the batteries run down according to the battery indicator on the device, on my old weather stations the indicator would indicate that the batteries were on their last legs upto three months before they did pack up, and this new machine has the same habit.

The main station is fine, apart from the fact that you can't read it in the dark without pressing the 'light' button. The outside sensor has stopped working after only 6 months and a replacement has had to bought at a cost of £19.99.

This fulfills exactly my requirements.
I wanted a unit to put on my bedside cabinet, that I could read whilst lying in bed which would tell me the outside conditions.
If you imagine a weather station like this is going to predict the weather for you in any but the most rudimentary way, you're living in cloud cuckoo land.
Watch the weather forecast on TV or check it on the web.
If you want a unit to tell you the inside & outside temperature,the time & humidity together with a nice little generic graphic representing the conditions, (clear, cloudy, rainy etc), then you have found it, and also, welcome to the real world.

I have owned 4 weather stations now, and so comparison with the others is the basis for my review.

The display picture you see above is orange. The illumination in the dark is slightly orange, but don't expect its normal unlighted display to look like the screen image.
It is standard LCD green-grey.
That said, this is the best and clearest display I've seen on a weather station.
The numbers are big and bold and the viewing angle is wide, vertically and laterally.
I have seen numerous complaints, and have experienced myself, units that you can only read if you view them square on.
Off to the side, or above or below, and the digits fade into obscurity.
This is not the case with this unit.
The display is good and clear from widely offset angles.
I don't know about the solar panel on top, I doubt it makes any difference to the battery life, (3 x AA Batteries + 1 AA in the remote unit).
As mine is in a dark bedroom the batteries will be doing all of the work I'm sure.
It does not give you barometric pressure.
