Ambient Weather has one
goal – to create a set of weather stations that are versatile, high-quality,
and provide accurate measurements every time. In WS-2902A you get all of that
The hub has a color film LCD display that gives a beautiful overlay of all the data points for you to see – looking over both indoor and outdoor parameters. While each machine is tested for quality, manual calibration is possible just in case. There is also plenty of other customization possible, with backlight controls, switching between imperial and metric units of measurement, and independent alerts for each parameter possible.
The sensor itself is both wireless and is a veritable 6-in-1 device that measures wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, rainfall, UV and solar radiation. A small solar panel on the outside of the sensor comes with a battery backup that takes excess solar energy and stores it during low-light or night time conditions. The transmission range extends as far as 300 feet with line of sight and follows a 915 MHz wave which can go through most solid objects with little to no problem.
- Sensor updates the hub once every 16 seconds, allowing for constant up-to-date information
- Indoor and outdoor temperature is accurate within 2 degrees Fahrenheit
- Humidity accurate within +/-5%
- Barometric Pressure margin of error is 0.08 inHg
- Wind speed precise within 10% range from 0 to 100 MPH
What really sets this machine aside from others is its online compatibility. The built-in WiFi card allows for two-way synchronization between the device and the internet. This communication serves a multitude of purposes, including constantly updating time and calendar metrics to be accurate, along with working with forecast services such as AmbientWeather.net and Wunderground. The former of these has a mobile app that allows you to set alerts to either your phone or email when a parameter is exceeded, while also providing a nifty timeline for these alerts. Wunderground is the other and is the most popular forecasting service in the world. This cloud-based service works with thousands of other compatible weather stations to give you the most accurate forecasting and data mining possible.
The manufacturer has included a mounting bracket that is compatible with a 1-2″ diameter pole and a bubble level to ensure it goes on straight. Compatible apps are available on both Android and Apple devices.
