  1. I started looking at weatherflow because I was unhappy about the quality of the Davis stuff and I don't think the price is much cheaper than the vantage vue, so I think it will be quality and reliability not price that tempts people to purchase over the Davis stations. The concept of the haptic rain sensor being a new idea was always going to be the thing that worked or didn't so I hope they get it sorted because the idea sounds good to me, fewer moving parts means less to go wrong. Does anybody in contact with the company know when or if the station will be available to order in the UK, is it stock or the sensor problems that is the hold up?
  2. Thanks for all the feedback so far, I'm glad they are still out of stock I would have ordered one by now and I think I would have regretted it. Would you say the concept of the thing is ok and the problems can be sorted out or are they starting to look like something to avoid?
  3. Sorry still no luck finding one. I have this version of it already http://www.foshk.com/Wifi_Weather_Station/WH2900.html which has some issues as I have said. ambient weather do a re numbered version of most, if not all fine offset stations but sadly don't ship to the UK.
  4. Is it the wstool app you are using and find easy because i'm having nothing but problems with it.
  5. Has anybody found this station in stock anywhere that will ship to the uk? I have been googling all day but the ambientweather is the only retailer I have found and they don't ship to the uk. http://www.foshk.com/Wifi_Weather_Station/HP2550.html same as this https://www.ambientweather.com/amws2000.html#caption I have one of the earlier models wh2900 and the display isn't the best it needs an app to connect it to wifi and it's a real pain to set up. the newer model looks like it doesn't need the app. I asked similar question a couple of years ago about the wh2900 without much luck so hoping for a better response this time please. any suggestions thanks Thanks
  6. looks hopeful so far, as you say some things will take time to evaluate. Am I correct in saying there is no solar panel / charger with these units so they run on battery all the time? unlike the davis stations. Hope you get some rain and lightening soon to finish off the initial testing.
  7. I'm looking forward to both of your views and opinions on these units and to them being in stock for order. They look like good weather stations I hope they work well and last longer than most of the other stuff on the market today. please don't make me wait I'm no good at it.
  8. sadly in my experience 2 years is about the lifespan of a weather station before it starts having problems or is dead, even the expensive stuff like davis. my solution is purchase 2 stations 12 months apart and run them both that way I always hopefully have one working and it means you can do maintenance on one station and still be collecting data. watch your wireless frequencies with 2 stations you will get interference. wired may be the only solution. I have not found a weather station I wouldn't call disposable but I do live in a place that gives them a hard time, the weather here gets bad sometimes.
  9. I had a problem with somebody else uploading data to my wunderground account, I have no idea how and wunderground support was rubbish and took months to do anything about. but the data on wunderground was different from my station, it probably isn't this but the test is to stop uploading your data and see what happens with wunderground, if data is still being displayed it's coming from somewhere else and not you.
  10. has the vane been installed on the spindle correctly or slipped lose maybe worth checking
  11. Well I am feeling left out, I have been waiting all week for the "heavy snow weather warning" beast from east, what do I get up here in Orkney, one inch of level snow,and that's melting quickly, why that needs a weather warning I don't know. I am enjoying the pictures though so keep them coming, I'm very jealous.
  12. if it is always off by the same amount have a look at the calibrate option. if you can adjust for that much error on the console?
  13. I think its the same as this one fine offset and I think the usb is just for factory update and doesn't work but there is some software called weather link ip that may help. Your best bet is to contact aercus and ask them. there is also the the maplin version called n23dq their website has lots of questions that may help.
  14. what model ? I didn't think they had usb
