    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

  2. My education commences 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2018

    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

  4. Good after a couple of teething problems 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st May 2018

    Overall, it appears to be a very good unit. It all seems to be working well now, but I had a few issues initially:
    1.The appendix for Southern Hemisphere setup doesn't mention that the thing needs to be aligned north south. That's under the paragraph " Norther Hemisphere locations only" that I naturally, skipped on the first reading.
    2. The remote device stopped talking to the display unit a couple of times in the first few days and the reset process took quite some time. At one stage, the red led on the units stayed on for a long time and I was thinking about sending the unit back. It finally resolved itself after I left the unit alone for several hours. It appears to work reliably now.
    3. There doesn't appear to be a Wunder Station app for Android which would be nice.
    Despite the few niggles, I'm very happy with the unit.
    The unit can be found at IVICTORI1435.

  5. Very nice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2017

    I looked at many different stations in the end I just had to choose one. The Weather Ranger was the one. Played with it for a week to learn the different functions then installed it on the roof. The only difficulty I had was when it was time to register with Weather Underground. I could not find my station in the list of stations. With help from Monax Contact I was directed to select "Ambient Weather WS-1002", there was no 1002 so I selected 1001 and everything worked wonderfully well. I now enjoy checking out my home weather at work, also history is good. Thanks for a very good unit.

    Kind Regards

  6. Does what it says on the box - perfectly 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Oct 2017

    I looked at cheap weather stations (~$Aud 100) and expensive ones (~$Aus 1000), but in the end I picked this as a mid-range one price-wise. And it works perfectly. Setup was easy - yes, I did read the manual! The outdoor sensor array is now attached to a fence about 40m from the house, and the base station is mounted on the inside of the outer wall of the house in the kitchen. Perfect communication. Overall, I'm very happy with this, despite only having had it for just over a week.

  7. Initially OK 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2017

    Installed without any problems, does what it says in the specs. Will update on performance in due time to evaluate robustness

  8. Great Weather Station and Price! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    Have been using this for a short while now. Setup was straight forward and started operating straight away, no hiccups. A wealth of information from the station. Only issue is not related specifically to the station but the Mac software which does not work. I understand a fix is in progress.

  9. Fantastic unit !! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2017

    This purchase has exceeded my expectations so far. It simply worked perfectly when instructions where followed as per enclosed booklet.

  10. WeatherRanger Professional weather station 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2017

    Bought as a gift in a rural area with no local weather metrics within ~100km.

    After some research settled on this model after reading other reviews on this website and taking into account what it needed to facilitate.

    So glad I avoided other weather station types that didn't come with onshore support although it hasn't been necessary thus far.

    Easy to setup - only adjusted wind direction by 180° to cater for the southern hemisphere as directed and all went well.

    Would have no hesitation in recommending this product to anyone else.
