Easy and simple to set up. Once we had the outdoor unit mounted, we used Google Earth to get the Lat/Long for our location. Logging in and entering the necessary location specific data into the Wunderground website and setting the display unit accordingly had us publishing our home weather online within the hour.
Outdoor unit seems very well made, indoor console is a bit cheap looking but altogether the unit seems to work well. Would have rated 4 stars except the prompt and efficient support from Monax when I raised a support ticket because it would not connect to the internet made me give it 5 stars.
Has all the functions promised. Pretty easy to set up. I had some trouble connecting to the internet, but advice from the supplier and a download of a more recent operating system solved the issue. Look forward to learning more about it. Only downside as an Australian is that I would prefer an ‘Apparent Temperature’ reading rather than the ‘Wind Chill’ reading which is offered and is rather meaningless for Australians. Monax Note: The screen does show "Heat Index" for temperatures of above 27 degrees C.
Very happy with the station, straight forward set up (touch screen would make it even easier) look forward to seeing how it holds up in a blow.
Great product that met my expectations. My weather station is about 65 meters away from the base unit through a glass wall. Signal strength is 3 bars (about half I think) Only down was the very short pole for mounting the unit. A bit longer would be nice. Connected to wunderground weather without any issues.
Easy to setup, install and get operational. The display is great, very clear and all the information needed readily visible. Having some issues with seeing the unit [on Weather Underground] on my iPad but otherwise very happy.
Very easy and straight forward to install and set up. I connected to the wifi and Wunderground with no problems which is remarkable for me. It has been recording the local weather for two weeks now with no problems to date so I am looking forward hopefully to years of use.
Reviews of the Weather Station prompted me to buy it. It has certainly lived up to the good reviews, simple installation, reliable, good data displayed on the indoor console. Highly recommend this product
I have been researching PWS for a number of years and have decided to buy the Weather Ranger based on simple installation, the amount of info the sensors send to the internal display, the access from my MAC AND PC as well as access via the net. Price was not a major factor in my decision I however it was value for the money. I would recommend this anyone
