The purchase was very easy, a fast turnaround on the delivery, this weather station was presented very professionally and was one of the easiest system to set up.
Over the years I have owned several cheaper weather stations and all have not lived up to expectations for one reason or another. I have only been using the WS2083 Pro for about 4 weeks but I am quite satisfied with its performance. Unfortunately I do not yet have the ability to download the memory contents to my Apple Mac but I am confident that problem will soon be overcome
I have set this up in my back yard about 20 m from my PC & desk through 2 brick walls & it works great. Easy to use & set up. Everyone is liking my weather updates at work & on FB. Highly recommend this unit especially if you are just getting started. This would be great for any farmers out there wanting to record their annual rainfall & weather conditions.
I have been using a cheap weather station for the last 2 years (it cost $100) and it was so so. There was no ability to download the information onto a computer or to save the data. When a cockatoo tried to land on it and broke off the wind speed indicator arm I decided to go for a unit that was a little more sophisticated and have the ability to store and download information onto my computer. researching units on the internet I came across the Aercus range of weather stations. Checking the Specs and price (this is what you do when you are retired) I decided that the WS2083 Pro Wireless Weather Station was the one for me, and it was compatible with my Mac. Monax had it on my doorstep in three working days - impressed. Setup was easy (even for an old fella) all worked fine, except the wind speed indicator wasn't working. Tried everything - checked the connections, reset it several times, all to no avail. Got in touch with the Monax Support Centre and they sent out a replacement unit. It was no problem and now I am the proud owner of a really cool weather station. Top marks to Monax for their professional approach to the problem and now I'm a happy chappie.
Installation was not a problem and it seems to be operating well. Getting under way with the recommended Cumulus computer program took a bit of trial and error but that's a separate matter.
A solar panel is probably the one feature I really wanted that is missing here. Otherwise, after two weeks, everything seems to be running well. It was easy to set up and zip tie to a pole on my shed roof. Plugging the base station into a Raspberry Pi running WeeWX only took a few more minutes to get it uploading to Weather Underground and archiving the data. I was a little worried about the amount of shielding on the temperature probe but so far it doesn't seem to be overestimating temperatures on very sunny days. For my first full scale weather station, I'm happy with it so far. It is quite plastic-y. Hopefully it holds up.
This is an excellent personal weather station. I have had it going for a little over a year now and have just purchased another one for a gift the first one has been so much fun. It has all the main weather variables wind, rain, temp, humidity, pressure etc and a nice forecasting capability. It has a big data logger built in which can record around 4,000 readings which is twice that of my old La Crosse unit. It was super easy to setup and came with a mounting pole so I didn't need any other bits. One complaint I have is that the cables for the rain gauge and wind sensors are very long. I understand this is so you can mount the rain gauge and wind sensors separately if needed but I have them all mounted on the mounting pole that comes with it. I have wrapped the cables around the mounting arms and it looks nice and tidy so no biggie. I'm impressed with the accuracy you get given the price. It's no Davis but at a quarter of the price it's not trying to be. I'm a bit of a nerd so I like the graphing of the history using the software and I have it sending info to Weather Underground so can view it on my iPhone. All of that was pretty straight forward to setup. Couple of tips, good quality batteries are a must especially for longer distances between the sensors and the console and don't use rechargeables. I initially had problems with rechargeables until I contacted Monax who were very helpful and they pointed out the rechargeables are mostly 1.2V whereas non-rechargeables are 1.5V. Switched to standard lithiums (better than alkalines) and now getting good signal through two walls and then 10m. Make sure the rain gauge is nice and level, it has a see-saw tipper inside it so needs to be mounted nice and straight. The rain gauge has a level built in fyi. So for a first or second station you can't go wrong with the WS2083.
This is a great product! We're very happy with it. Set up on our computer was a piece of cake and it keeps all the info and stats about your weather stored nice and safe. It is really nice to know how much rain fell in our own backyard. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great little weather station.
Easy setup, more than enough information does not need direct line of site very impressive. Have had station before other brand always playing up. Do some research before you buy and that will lead you directly to this brand.
