This versatile system forecasts local weather; automatically sets andupdates the time, day, and date; keeps track of the indoor temperature; andemploys a remote, wireless sensor to record the outdoor temperature up to 100feet away. For forecasting weather within 12 to 24 hours, the6-1/4-by-4-1/4-inch monitor employs a built-in electronic barometric-pressuresensor and then displays the upcoming weather with an icon (sunny, partly sunny,cloudy, rain/snow) on its backlit LCD screen. For keeping track of time, themonitor is equipped with a radio receiver tuned to the U.S. atomic clock; thisenables the monitor to maintain split-second accuracy by automaticallyadjusting, if necessary, to the atomic clock's signals six times every 24 hours.From those signals, the monitor also displays the date, the day, and the timezone for which the user has set the clock. Also, the clock automatically adjustsfor daylight saving time and for leap year. The monitor beams the time and theoutdoor temperature onto a wall or ceiling in large, red numerals for easyreadability. If the monitor is in battery-mode (four AA batteries included),pressing the clock's snooze bar will beam the data for five seconds. If themonitor is plugged into a wall socket with an AC adapter (included), theprojection will be available either for five seconds with the snooze bar orcontinuously if a continuous-beam control is set. The projection beam comes froma device mounted next to the clock. The device pivots so the beam can beprojected onto any surface, and a dial focuses the beam for clarity. You canalso choose to have the temperature displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.--Fred Brack ... Read more

Although there are some cool features on this clock, it doesn't do all that it should. I'll simply list the pros and cons and you can decide for yourself.

Pros:
- you can instantly know the weather outside and the temperature inside.
- the forcast prediction and graphics are remarkably accurate.
- projection on ceiling is very cool at night - you can look straight up as you lie in bed and know the time.

Cons:
- even though it plugs in, the clock runs on batteries. the plug is only for the projection part.
- the alarm wouldn't wake up the lightest sleeper - it's just a little beep like your microwave makes. it just makes them more often as you sleep through it.
- the projection doesn't work at all if any light is on in the room and it's really only usefull on a perpendicular surface - otherwise it's stretched and half out of focus.

So as a second clock and something neat to have, this is fine. Don't get it as your primary alarm clock if you want to make it to work on time and not get fired :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars ITS THE BEST BED SIDE CLOCK EVER !!!
The projection is awesome! The alarm starts quiet then gets loud enough to wake anyone (except the dead or the laziest). The weather forcasting works great never wrong. Knowing the time and outdoor temp as soon you open your eye's right on the ceiling or wall is wonderful! Never needs to be set I receive the signal fine and I live in northern rural Minnesota. Buy it you will love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!!
I had this for a year now, and I NEVER had a problem with it. *Knock wood*. It does what it says, and it is very accurate, and the weather forecaster is pretty acurate too. A must buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Too Little....
Love the clock but wish the buttons were a little less cumbersome - hard to manipulate with just one hand. Indoor temp. reads a little high. Perhaps the projector heats the internals. Other than that, the time and outdoor temp. on the ceiling is quite entertaining!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great idea; poor design
I bought this clock for my technophobic mother and she loves it. The display on the ceiling is ideal for her; she is severely near-sighted in one eye and almost blind in the other. She can see the display on the ceilng in the middle of the night without any problems. In addition to the display, she appreciates being able to see the temperature, both inside and out.

Another feature of this clock that is ideal for her is that the regular display is only lit when you want it to be lit. There are no glaring red numbers staring at you all night. When you want to see the time/temp, press the snooze button and the display lights for a few seconds.

Now for the negatives of this great little gadget. It is very lightweight and the buttons sit smoothly at the bottom of the clock. It is difficult to tell one button from another or to even push the buttons to set the alarm, view, etc. Raised braille like nobs on the buttons would be helpful as well as making the base wider so it would be more difficult to knock it over. Also, if the clock is running off battery, you have the option of displaying the time on the ceiling only when you press the snooze button. However, if you use the A/C adapter, you're choices are continuous display or no display. The slide switch that controls this is on the side of the clock and is difficult to find by feel.

Despite the few shortcomings of this clock, I still think it's wonderful and recommend it to anyone who is tired of squinting at glowing red dots to see what time it is; who wants to know the temperature both inside and out; and who always wants the correct time. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Completely wireless and simple to install, this home weatherstation tracks and stores data about more than 20 weather conditionsand displays them on a touch-screen LCD monitor that measures only 8inches wide by 5-1/2 inches high. The instruction booklet accompanyingthe weather station is easy to comprehend, making the stationaccessible to children, as well as adult hobbyists, gardeners, campers,and fishing enthusiasts. There are three outdoor sensors, each poweredby a solar cell: an anemometer that attaches to a building, fence, orroof to measure wind speed and direction; a thermo-hygrometer tomeasure temperature and humidity; and a self-emptying rain gauge. (Atleast six hours of sunshine are needed to operate the solar cells for24 hours. Each sensor has a backup battery-power unit that requires twoAA batteries--not included.) A 4-1/4-by-2-3/4-inch baro-hygrometermeasures indoor temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity, andmounts on a wall or stands on a desk. (It requires four AAAbatteries--not included.)

The touch-screen monitor keeps track of the indoor and outdoor sensors,and also displays local weather/barometric pressure forecasts.Additionally, it has a calendar/clock, an alarm that sounds whensensors detect conditions beyond parameters set by the user, a memorybutton for retrieving past data, and an AC power adapter. (Its backupbattery-power unit requires four AA batteries--not included.) Thesystem can support three additional remote sensors and can interfacewith a PC. Additional sensors, the PC-link software/cable kit, and along-term data-memory accessory are all sold separately. --FredBrack ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Careful !!!
I purchased this unit. Works fine, communicates with software package purchased separately, HOWEVER, it does NOT have the atomic clock feature of most Oregon Scientific clocks. The clock update feature is one way only, from weather station to PC. I have atomic clock software on my PC, so I cannot use this feature. Oregon Scientific customer service said that the self-adjust feature was supposed to be included in the units, but was not, and that they had no plans to fix it. Otherwise, the performance is great if you remember that this is a burst transmission and not continous.

3-0 out of 5 stars Instruction Manual is poorly written.
You have to read between the lines a lot when assembling this unit. Not too difficult if you have some mechanical knowledge. So far so good, time will tell on its longevity when in operation.

4-0 out of 5 stars weather station
It took about 4 hours to complete the installation. It worked right out of the box as advertised. You need tools and experience with building and installing electrical type projects i.e. Heath Kits. If you like tinkering around. This is for you. If you want instant stuff forget it. It is wireless but will not jump out of the box and set up it's self up.

4-0 out of 5 stars Do your homework
The Oregon Scientific WMR968 is a very inexpensive but complex weather instrument. I have been researching home weather stations for over a year now, and just purchased the WMR968 from Amazon.com when the price dropped by half. At the current price it is worth the extra trouble to get it to do what it should do. At this price, you have to expect to do some extra fiddling to get it to perform. If you really want a weather station that is going to perform perfectly, time after time, right out of the box, keep looking. This isn't the one for you. But, on the other hand, for those of you who like me have very little cash to spend on a home weather station, this is a good buy.

Only beware! As is noted in these reviews, and on many other consumer review web sites, the manual that comes in the box is trash! Do not use that manual to set up and tune your WMR968. Please, please, please, go to the Radio Shack website and download the manual for the Radio Shack Cable Free Weather Station with AccuWeather, and use that one, it is excellent! The Radio Shack weather station is identical in all respects to the one sold under the Oregon Scientific brand name, except that, for some reason, it has a real manual written by a real American, and it has all the information you need. Note, that the manual that comes with the Oregon Scientific weather station has 9 pages. The Radio Shack manual has 36 pages.

My advice: if you decide to take the risk and purchase the Oregon Scientific WMR968 from Amazon.com, like I did, read all the consumer reviews, even the nasty ones. You should know what might happen to you. Gather up as much information as you can. I have found several exellent tips on setting up and tuning the WMR968 on this and other web sites. Another suggestion: join and contribute to a weather station bulletin board, such as WeatherMatrix.net. Share your knowledge and experience with others. Finally, don't be tempted to cut corners when setting up your weather station. The sensitive electronics are not tolerant of abuse. Do your best to make sure everything outdoors is weather-tight.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Product
For the price, this product has turned out to be extremely mediocre. I decided to purchase the weather station as a gift based upon the outstanding reputation of Oregon Scientific. While, the indoor/outdoor temperature gauge as well as the barometer have worked flawlessly, the rain and wind gauge have never worked correctly (not from lack of trying).

Based upon a price of $400, I expect all the instruments to function flawlessly (assuming proper installation, of course). This simply hasn't happened. There are any number of less-expensive competing weather stations on the market that offer the indoor/outdoor temperature gauge and barometer. I spent the extra money on this product for the additional features of the rain and wind gauge. Since these features have never worked properly, I would not recommend this product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Product, Horrible Manual
Just received the rain gauge from Amazon. The instruction manual is at least as bad as everyone says. It makes no mention of the reset switch in the outdoor unit along with numerous other omissions. The cost of phone & email support plus perfectly good units returned in frustration has got to be more than that of a proper manual. As a retired electronics tech (who occasionally wrote in-house procedures) and a native Oregonian, this manual from an Oregon hi-tech company is embarrassing.

On the other hand, looking the unit over, it appears to be very well made. The level of workmanship and quality of the circuit board and wiring in the outdoor unit is much higher than you would expect from a consumer electronic device in this price range. The batteries included were Mallory, not a mystery brand. The indoor unit has a nice heft and its switches have a quality feel.

In setting up the outdoor unit, the two screws that hold the collector/funnel assembly are easily lost and probably metric. Be careful! The screws for the battery box cover, on my unit, were "captive". Loosen until you feel them 'bump' on the thread insert and they will stay with the cover. Remove the plastic insulating strip from the battery box, reinstall the batteries and press the "RESET" switch with a straightened paper clip. As larryaol mentioned, it's a good idea to leave the cover open until everything is working.

The indoor unit also has a plastic insulating strip in the battery box that must be removed. That done and the batteries installed, press its "RESET" switch with the paper clip. The upper display should stop flashing once the two units establish contact. Although the manual makes no mention, clearly the radio link isn't continuous. It seems to need up to 30 seconds for the display to update. With the rain collector still open, you can carefully remove the tape that holds the tipping bucket mechanism and manually tip it a couple of times to check operation. Its resolution is 0.04" per tip. Wait about 30 seconds for the rainfall reading to update.

Another serious manual omission is in clearing the rainfall reading. The manual instructs you to "Press and hold the RAIN RESET/SINCE button for 2 seconds" but this doesn't work. Oregon Scientific's call center was helpful. What you need to do is press & release then immediately press & hold. This also loads the current "SINCE" date in the lower display.

Hopefully, someone at Oregon Scientific will do something about the instruction manual.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't Stress this enough!!
The unit once setup is pretty slick. Setting it up is another story. Once you remove the exterior sensor battery cover and remove the plastic strip BE SURE TO DEPRESS THE RESET BUTTON next to the batteries. If you don't do this (the manual barely mentions it) you will have to remove all 10 screws again to gain entrance to the reset button. I too, like a previous reviewer have difficulty clearing the rain amount, it seems to work when it is in the mood, not me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quality Product but Terrible Instruction Manual
Before attempting to set this product up, it would be worth your while to read some of the other reviews of this product on this website. They have suffered through trying to understand one of the most poorly written operating manuals I've ever seen. Don't let this dissuade you from buying the product because it's a great rain gauge. Just be aware that the manual simply doesn't cover the operating features and instructions in enough detail to allow anyone to properly set the unit up. The most notable omission is about the RAIN/HISTORY - Since reset feature. Read the remaining reviews and enjoy the product.

4-0 out of 5 stars thanks amazonian reviewers - you made set up easy
Setup would be impossible without the reviewers below. After reading their instructions, the whole thing took 10 minutes and the gauge is really fine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Instructions = 0 Stars
As others have mentioned, the instruction booklet is almost worthless. I went to the manufacturer's website: www.oregonscientific.com, it wasn't any better.
TIPS:
1. You need a very small jewelers screwdriver, pref. a phillips head.
2. There are 10 tiny screws (2 sizes) you must remove from the outdoor unit! Have containers ready to hold them.
3. After opening the outdoor unit's battery cover, remove the batteries, take out the clear plastic spacer, reinsert the batteries, and MOST IMPORTANT-- press the reset button next to the batteries with an unbent paper clip.
4. BEFORE closing-up the outdoor unit, do the following on the indoor unit--
5. Remove battery cover, remove the batteries, take out the clear plastic spacer, reinsert the batteries, and press the indoor unit's reset button above the batteries with an unbent paper clip.
6. Wait a minute or two for the indoor unit to lock in on the outdoor unit's signal. The top two lines of the display will flash until it finds the signal.
7. If the display keeps flashing, press the OUTDOOR unit's reset button again.
8. Then press the indoor reset, again.
Once the display stops flashing, then close-up the outdoor unit. Don't jiggle the outdoor unit or it will record that as "rainfall."
9. I could not get the rainfall total to reset with the "rain reset" button. I had to do the full reset on the indoor unit.
10. If all else fails.... Reset, reset, reset! Outdoor unit first! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Worked just fine..... for a while!
I purchased this unit in late December 2002 (as a Christmas present to myself), and was tremendously pleased with it for nearly a year.....

However, a few months ago it developed a horribly irritating flaw -- the LCD screen would simply go blank, and had to be reset (PITA, because it doesn't have a reset "button"; instead, you have to straighten out a paperclip and shove it into a small hole in the back).

I've emailed the folks at Oregon Scientific about this problem, and they suggested a variety of things that they thought *might* correct this behaviour (i.e. make sure the transmitting and receiving units are at least 10ft apart, try switching to a different channel, etc). Unfortunately, none of their suggestions had any effect on the problem, and it just continues to get worse (i.e. I now have to go thru the reset process 2 or 3 times before the display comes back). And a subsequent email to the Oregon Scientific folks 3 days ago has yet to be responded to.

So while I was satisfied with this unit at one time, it is now just worthless, and I consider it to have been a waste of my money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best bet for a wireless thermo-hygrometer
I have owned this unit for about three years. The outdoor sensor resides on a column under a covered patio at the rear of my home. The receiver is in the home office, which is approximately 40' from the sending unit. The signal must travel through four walls to the receiver. It has worked like a charm from day one and is extremely accurate. Batteries have been changed only one time during my ownership. I purchased another sensor for another part of my home, which is indoors (and further from the receiver and has more walls to penetrate than the outdoor sensor). So, I have three readings around my home...one outside, one in my home office and another upstairs in a remote room. This system is strudy, reliable and has a very nice appearance. I like having the information displayed on the remote sensors as well. One glance and I know what is happening when at those locations. You cannot go wrong with Oregon Scientific. I am amazed that the cost of this monitoring system is so reasonable, given the quality that is present. I am now purchasing a duplicate system for my beach home. You will never regret having chosen this package for your weather information needs. A conservative five+++ stars goes to OS and this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars very pleased
I originally boiught a GE unit from Target. Piece of junk, very inaccurate.
I wanted to monitor the humidity in my basement workshop with a dehumidifier. With the extended unit, i can monitor my bedroom and with another extra extended unit i monitor my babies room.
All 3 separate units, the main unit and 2 extended units placed together showed very similar readings. The GE product was over 15% wrong with humidity, (they say it's calibrated within 5%).
I also brought the Oregon Scientific units outdoors and checked the humidity against what the National Weather Service reported for the area and it was right on. The GE unit reported 80% humidity in a while the OG units showed 65% as reported by th Nation Weather Service.
They seem more substantial pieces and not toys displaying big LCD numbers and graphics.
These are not expensive compared to really high end humidity measuring devices so i expect inaccuracy and can tolerate inaccuracy within reason. (Unlike the GE sold at target) Therefore this product meets and even exceeds my expectations. I believe it represents honestly what it intends to do for this price range.

Everyone from school children to meteorologists will appreciatethis exceptionally high-quality wireless remote weather station. Thethree basic components of the station are a stylish main display unit,which can sit on a desk or mount on a wall; a remote rain gauge,powered by its own small solar transmitter; and a wind gauge(anemometer), also powered by its own solar transmitter. The displayunit comes with two sensors: a thermo-hygrometer for outdoorinstallation, and a baro-thermo-hygrometer for indoor installation.Simultaneous readouts of all the weather station functions are clearlyarrayed on the main unit: barometric pressure, indoor and outdoorrelative humidity, indoor and outdoor temperature, rainfall amount andrate of fall, time and weather alarms, wind speed, wind direction, andwind chill temperature. Graphics of clouds, sun, and rain portray theday's forecast, and a digital compass displays the wind readings.

All compatible components for the weather station can be placed up to300 feet from the main display unit and transmit at 433 MHz. The mainunit measures 7-3/4 by 3-1/4 by 1-1/2 inches, and features a rotatingantenna and push-button automatic-opening control panel on the front.The weather station requires AAA and AA batteries (not included), andcomes with a 12-volt DC adapter. The anemometer requires some assemblyof the wind vane, and should be mounted securely (hardware included),as it can record winds up to 125 miles per hour. Cables attached to therain gauge and anemometer plug into their respective solartransmitters. The weather station is programmable to display readingsin Celsius or Fahrenheit, inches or millimeters, and in five differentlanguages. While a 90-day warranty covers defects, the station shouldgive years of pleasure to weather watchers.--Ann Bieri ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Love it but beware of set up directions
I had purchased this weather station with some hesitancy after reading the reviews of the Oregon Scientific WMR968 weather station. This unit, the WMR112SET, was a newer model but the WMR968 was not reviewed well due, I think, to most folks inability to compensate for errors in the instruction manual. If you follow the set up directions in this manual to the letter you will encounter problems. Only by reading the entire manual did I discover a sentence that states that unless the main control unit is set up last you will wonder why many of the other monitoring units aren't communicating with it for you MUST assemble all the other units and have them operating under power before setting up the main unit so that all readings will appear on it. It took me 3 or 4 hours to figure this out since the very first set up section in the manual concerning the anemometer tells you to use the main control unit to adjust the anemometer and then set up the other sensing units. You can't do that. You have to set up all the sensor units first before powering up the main control unit and then make your adjustments to the anemometer. Having stated that this was somewhat frustrating to set up, once it was set up it worked like a charm. I really enjoy this weather station. It works well and my advice is to set all of the units up on a table and give the sensors some time to adjust themselves and communicate. For me that time was a few minutes. The indoor and outdoor sensor's readings were initially way off sitting side by side on the table subjected to the same temperature and relative humidity but they eventually ended up reading the same after about 5 to 10 minutes. You do need a compass to accurately set the anemometer and the tiny set screws pictured in the directions on the wind speed and wind direction parts are hidden under some plugs that aren't described in the directions and that must be removed with a needle or pin to get to the screws. The directions could be clearer but I am satisified with this station. However, I'm someone who will tinker with something until it works correctly. Now I have to admit the the fact that this weather station is wireless and needed no holes drilled through the outside of your home held great appeal to me as did the solar powered rain and wind gauges. Everything has battery backup, too. The readings all appear to be accurate as well. The atomic clock feature and weather forecast and alarm functions mean that this is really the only source needed most weather conditions. The station also has many functions not discussed in the editorial review here such as dew point for example. I'd recommend that you purchase this if you want an attractive, accurate weather station and you don't mind spending a few hours setting it up. Set up time could be under 30 minutes if the documentation was better. Oregon Scientific does provide you with a technical support number if you have problems. I put the unit together without calling them but you may need to do so if the directions confuse you. I only gave this weather station a four out of five star rating because of the set up instructions. After that set up you should pleased with the results that you get for many years to come. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Accurate Enough (How to Calibrate an Hygrometer)
My unit reads 4% low, which is about par for an inexpensive hygrometer. The digits are readable across the room, however, and I can subtract 4 in my head.

You can check the accuracy of your hygrometer as follows:

Take a big bottle cap full of salt (a teaspoon or two) and add a few drops of water to it. You want a stiff paste, not liquid salt. Put your hygrometer and salt-laden bottle cap into a tupperware container and seal it up. (Make sure that you can read the hygrometer through the walls of the container without opening the lid.) Leave everything alone and sealed for 24 hours (while the air inside the container settles). A properly calibrated hygromter will read exactly 75%.

5-0 out of 5 stars a must for piano owners
I'm a professional piano technician, and I would strongly recommend this product for piano owners. Pianos suffer damage when exposed to temperature and humidity changes, and this product helps to monitor that. If you are getting wide swings in either number, you should either move the piano or make adjustments to your HVAC setup.

1-0 out of 5 stars Description is misleading
I bought this thinking that it would show the outside humidity which is very important where I live.

It does not. It only gives indoor/outdoor temperatures and INDOOR HUMIDITY. Since most people don't have a problem with the indoor humidity this info is not worth much.

It seems like they intentionally worded a misleading description on this product. Any indication of trying to mislead the consumer gets ONE Star in my book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good product
I purchased this one as a last resort to the 4 I previously purchased from Radio Shack.

I breed snakes, and I need to know exactly what the temperature and humidity is inside the incubator. Unlike the Radio Shack versions (which were cheaper), this gives an accurate measurement of both temp and humidity levels.

The display is large enough to read from a distance, so I don't have to get out my glasses to read the numbers. It's a good quality product for the money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sorry I bought it . . .
Hygrometer is very inaccurate - shows humidity at less than 50% in Virginia in the middle of July on days you sweat just sticking your head out the door. At the same time, it shows the humidity inside a nice, comfy air-conditioned house as about the same. The thermometer is ok, but 50% is a failing grade where I come from . . . ... Read more

Note, that I have not used the product yet. These are just -out-of-the-box impressions. The description states that it is "Compatible with Oregon Scientific's wireless weather station". However, be warned that you MUST own that unit.
The WGR968 is ONLY a transmitter and completely worthless unless you have the weather station.
Also, (sarcasm warning) could they have printed the manual using a SMALLER type style? It is printed in english, french, spanish,german, but only for people with VERY good eye sight.

5-0 out of 5 stars Anemometer review
Have had this unit for about 10 months and it has performed great. Easy to set up, and provides accurate readings. The wireless feature is great, given the need to get the unit at least 20 feet above any surrounding obsticals. The unit is solid and has had no problems. A good unit for the price. If you are considering an anemometer, keep in mind that it must be located well above any buildings so the wind is not affected by the wind deflection of roofs, trees etc. Thus, the biggist problem can be getting the unit high enough on a solid mounting. Mine is on a 35'high 2" pipe, secured to the side of the house, and well grounded.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Weather Tool
Snow and cold. Combine the cold with wind and you have yourself a low wind chill factor. This unit measures windspeed and then sends the info to the main unit (which you must purchase separately). The unit combines the outdoor temperature with the windspeed and automatically calculates wind chill. It works wonderfully and really comes in handy before heading off to work. It is solar powered with a battery backup, so make sure you have chosen the proper area in which to place the unit. I'm a weather buff, so of course I love it! ... Read more

A great gadget for the seriously climate minded, thiscable-free station from Oregon Scientific tracks weather patterns and keepsabsolutely punctual time. The primary station takes measurements fromits immediate surroundings and also communicates with the remotesensor, which can be mounted outdoors up to 100 feet away. A large LCDscreen shows temperature, humidity, and comfort level for bothlocations. It also depicts weather forecasts in kinetic-movementgraphics and tracks overall trends in recent readings. Adjustable foraltitude, the device's barometer charts a 24-hour pressure trend on aeasy-to-read bar graph, while an eight-part indicator tracks tidalchanges and moon phases. The station's ExactSet clock, designed for usein the continental U.S., sets itself by the U.S. Atomic Clock,resynchronizes six times a day, and adjusts for daylight savings. Handyextras include a blue backlight, a date display, a crescendo alarm withsnooze, and a low-battery indicator. The kit can handle up to twoadditional remote sensors. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Weather station review
Have had this weather station and the anemometer for about 10 months, bought in Feb 03. It has performed exceptionally well. One of the sensors was transmitting but not reading directly. I returned it and a new unit was promptly sent. A nice feature is the memory unit that stores data, allowing you to see highs and lows for a preceding period. When used with the anemometer, it tracks the highest wind gust recorded to date. A nice unit at a reasonable price. I have experiance with using professional weather instruments, and this unit provides excellent data at a reasonable price. The wireless feature is great, no cable to string.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great design, lousy measurement
This thermometer/hygrometer is highly usable, with great base/remote reception, easy setup, and nice ergonomics. Unfortunately, the important bit, i.e.- the actual MEASUREMENT of temperature and humidity, is complete nonsense. I sat the base station and remote monitor right next to each other for a couple of hours, changed the RF channels, changed the monitor position/orientations, and they never even vaguely reflected the same temp/humidity - there was always at least a 5 degrees (F) and 5 percentage points of humidity differential, although they should be pretty much identical! I followed the owner's manual recommendations for synching them more frequently, and it made zero difference. Even worse, when you put the monitors outside and let them sit out there for an hour or so, they are still WAY off in their measurements of temp and humidity versus Accuweather, NWS, and Weather.com. In my measurements at home on my 12th-floor balcony, a mile from midtown Manhattan, both the base monitor and remote were always at least 8 degrees (too high) and ten percentage points of humidity (too low) off from the consensus reading from the presumable "reference" data compiled by numerous high-end, science-grade weather stations. Ironically, my $10 oven thermometer I just bought for Thanksgiving is pretty much dead-on with the reference temperature measurements, while this so-called "weather station" averages almost 10 degrees off and 15 humidity points off!! If Amazon wants to be a responsible retailer, it should stop selling this thing until Oregon Scientific works out the bugs. I'm not some weather nutjob - I just wanted this gizmo to measure humidity in my baby's nursery during the dry winter months, but I was very disappointed. I think I'll stick with the old school, analog "piles of dials" approach.

5-0 out of 5 stars right on......
Have been pleased as punch with this instrument. The baramometer is accurate once adjusted to elevation in meters. The remote guage works well outside in the weather. You can measure four seperate temps with the addition of three more remotes. The clock will sync after a few days. I love this thing.......

2-0 out of 5 stars cool tool, shoddy product, lousy support
I purchased this as a x-mas gift for my busband. We both thought it was pretty cool and useful. . BUT within 6 months the remote sensor stopped working (it was telling us that it was 138 degrees F). Silly me I figured that something at this price point would still be covered under warantee. Not so. OSI is saying we need to buy another remote sensor. IF we do purchase it, then it will be the last things we ever buy of OSI products.

My suggestion. . save your money or buy someone else's!

A very attractive housing. Once set to my altitude it has been right on concerning the barameter. I have no problem with the unit. I hang it on the wall and measure the outside and inside and plan to order two more remote sensors for up and down stairs.......... ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Weather Station
My wife gave me this weather station for my birthday, and I love it. It's a great combo since it includes a barometer and a wireless rain guage - the only thing missing is wind speed/direction (which would require much more effort for installation anyway). My only negative is the appearance, which, with all the bubble-like circles, I'd have to say is unique. Being modular is of limited usefulness - I think most people like myself will leave them all together, and a single unit would have been more solid. But still, I'd have to give this a big thumbs up.

1-0 out of 5 stars avoid this product
They advertised that this thing will transmit up to 100 ft. WRONG. I tried to mount the remote about 40 ft from the indoor receiver and could get nothing. Then I tried moving the indoor receiver closer to the remote (approx 25 feet) - nothing. Both of these applications had to go through a wall and were not line-of-site, which is why I purchased a wireless system.

Then I moved the remote from it location to the outside wall of where I had th eindoor receiver mounted (approx 18 inches away) - nothing. I then reconfigured everything and put the indoor sensor in an area where I did not want it, but I figured I would get used to it. The mounted the remote - outdoor sensor in a spot that has direct line-of-site through a window to the indoor sensor at a range of about 23 ft - nothing. Mind you, I had changed batteries 4 times in all of the units, thinking that I had bad batteries (which it turns out I did not).

What is most infuriating is that I received this item on 2/13/04 while I was moving into my new house. I installed it on the weekend of 2/21. I emailed OREGON SCIENTIFIC on 3/23 for tech advice and received no answer. I had to write again 1 week later (3/31)with the same inquiry. This time they responded "I am sorry, but as your order has passed our 30-day grace period, we cannot accept your return." I didn't even ask to return it! I just wanted the thing to work right as advertised.

Anyway, I now have the indoor unit mounted on a window sill 5 feet from the outdoor remote in direct-line-of site through a window. Truly pathetic.

Avoid any of this company's products as they are very dishonest.

My boyfriend bought this station in July just for FUN. First, I was like what.. [money] for a clock like this?? No way! But, I was wrong¡K after he explained everything¡K ¡§This clock is a weather forecaster, you can get indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity from the senor and atomic clock, good for traveling¡¨ Overall, pretty accurate with the weather forecaster, about 70% correct, that¡¦s the manual said. And like others said that the atomic clock works excellent. Cons: should show the pressure in number, like 1003mb.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works well
I purchased this unit from Costco and I have been very happy. I am a bit of a weather station nut and I have accumulated three different models and multiple remote wireless sensors. What I like about this unit is that it gives you a possible forecast through the barometric pressure analysis. It also provides you with the atomic clock time, which is most useful at our weekend place where the power tends to suffer at least one brownout a week. The temperature taking appears accurate and the unit is handsome enough to put up on the wall. I constantly get questions on the unit from visitors who want to know what it does and where can they get one.

I just bought the model BAR122HGA for a week and very happy with it. Looks very slick out of the package, the remote senor and the main unit temperature were off by 2 degree when I took it out of the box, but after 15 minutes they were in syn. The atomic clock works excellent, I change the wrong time on purpose to test the feature, after awhile it syn. the correct time by itself. The future weather forecast were mostly correct so far. It is so much easier now to determine if I should give my children heavy jacket or not just by looking at the weather station. The best part is that, it is more reliable than the weather man. ...

This system shows the temperature and humidity at two locationsand automatically sets and updates the time with split-second accuracy.The system has two wireless units: a monitor that displays the time,day, and date, as well as the temperature and humidity in its location;and a remote indoor/outdoor sensor that displays the temperature andthe humidity where it's located--garden, greenhouse, wine cellar, orbaby's room. You can place it up to 90 feet away, and it will radio thetemperature and humidity to the monitor for display. (The monitor canhandle data from two additional remote sensors, which must be orderedseparately.) For keeping track of time, the monitor is equipped with aradio receiver tuned to the U.S. Atomic Clock, enabling the monitor toautomatically adjust, if necessary, to the Atomic Clock's signals sixtimes every 24 hours. The monitor displays the time zone for which theuser has set the clock. (Adjustment for daylight-saving time and leapyear is automatic.) The clock can also function as a crescendo alarmfor wakeup or reminder.

The monitor displays the minimum and maximum temperature and humidityreadings at its location, as well as that of the remote sensor, duringa selected period, and shows trends (rising, falling, or steady) ofthis data. Users can set alarms for both units to sound when thetemperature or humidity rises or falls above or below limits set by theuser. You can set up both the 5-1/2-by-3-1/4-inch monitor and the4-1/8-by-2-3/4-inch sensor on flat surfaces or on wall mounts, and youcan set them to show temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Time, Temperature and Humidity
I purchased this model to replace an older unit (RMR112A) because I wanted the added feature of humidity. I think it is a great device. The old unit and the new unit sitting side by side track room temperature within 1/2 degree.

The radio controlled clock can be tempermental in some locations. I live in a condo with a lot of steel but I found that if I put the unit near a window for the first day and let the clock latch onto the time I can move the unit to where I want to set it and it will continue to keep accurate time. Mainly, it does this by searching at the right time of day when the signal is boosted by the Naval Observatory. (I have six radio controlled clocks and one watch that is radio controlled.)

Battery life is very good. On the old outside unit I changed the batteries once a year (each summer).

This would be a five star product if I could see the internal and external temperature and humidity without pressing a button.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great product
It was a bit tricky to set the atomic clock, but once that was done everything worked just fine. We were able to move the device almost 100 miles, and the clock never lost its satellite connection. Temperature and humidity trend arrows are easy to read and useful. I like the design, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Use it everyday
I love this little toy. I have had it for over a year, keep it in my bathroom, and look at temp and humidity inside and out at least once a day. I haven't even had to replace the batteries yet. I liked it so much I bought 4 of them as Christmas gifts in 2003. This is one gadget that gets used and doesn't end up in the closet.

2-0 out of 5 stars Base and remote don't get on very well, badly designed
Living In Belgium, I have the European version of this unit (degrees C, and synchronises with the atomic clock in Frankfurt). Apart from that, identical units, I assume.

Fist of all, the remote and base station don't communicate with each other very well. When I set them side by side, and instruct the base to find the remote, then no problem, they synchronise with each other, and the remote's weather conditions are displayed on the base station. However, when they are separated by a distance of 6m/20ft, the connection is lost. The unit is only 2 months old, so I hope that battery depletion is not the problem. In any case, no battery low indication is displayed, by either the base or remote unit.

In my opinion, the design is not very good. For example, why does the remote have a LED to indicate when data is being transmitted to the base station, and so depleting the battery in the process? Better to have used an icon on the built-in display. Also, to display the local and remote weather conditions, a button has to be pressed to select one of the two. Further, the base station allows up to four remotes to be used. Why should I have to press the station button five times to cycle through the base station and all four remote, even if only one remote is being used? I would guess that the use of one remote is the most common scenario, so why was the system designed in this way?

There is also a temperature/humidity alarm. However, it only works with the remote. For me it would be handy in winter to know when the relative humidity indoors goes below a preset level, to protect my piano...

Apart from all that, the radio clock synchronisation works perfectly, and the unit and remote differ only by a fraction of a degree.

In summary, OK if you don't use the remote station. In which case, a cheaper single base station model should suffice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice for the money
If you need simple way to monitor temp. in 2-4 locations its good to have one of this. Atomic clock works only in a certain areas(PA-ok, NYC-not ok). ... Read more

Thestylish main display unit, which can sit on a desk or mount on a wall,receives data from two included sensors: a thermo-hygrometer foroutdoor installation, and a baro-thermo-hygrometer for indoor readings.The main unit supports up to seven Oregon Scientific components, suchas a remote rain gauge and anemometer (wind gauge), which can bepurchased separately. Simultaneous readouts of all the weather-stationfunctions are clearly arrayed on the main unit: barometric pressure,indoor and outdoor relative humidity, indoor and outdoor temperature,and current time and weather alarms. With extra components, the stationmeasures rainfall amount and rate of fall, wind speed, wind direction,and wind chill temperature. Graphics of clouds, sun, and rain portraythe day's forecast, and a digital compass displays the windreadings.

All compatible components for the weather station can be placed up to300 feet from the main display unit and they will transmit at 433 MHz.The main unit measures 7-3/4 by 3-1/4 by 1-1/2 inches, and features arotating antenna, simple touch-screen operation, and push-buttonautomatic-opening control panel on the front. The weather station isprogrammable to display readings in Celsius or Fahrenheit, inches ormillimeters, and five different languages; batteries and a 12-voltadapter are included. While a three-month warranty covers defects, thestation should give years of pleasure to weather watchers. --AnnBieri ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Short life, poor quality
I wouldn't recommend any of Oregon Scientific products. The Weather Station I bought had to be returned within a month because of multiple failures. The replacement lasted about six months.

Oregon Scientific is noted for good looking products that have horrible quality control. Look elsewhere, I see some storm chaser teams rely on Davis Instruments equipment. I'm going to look into their products next. ... Read more

In addition to showing the time, this clock provides a myriadof weather information useful to hobbyists, gardeners, campers, andfishing enthusiasts. The weather clock's large LCD screen is dividedinto seven segments. Employing the device's built-in electronicbarometric pressure sensor, the top segment displays the 12- to 24-hourweather forecast with an icon (sunny, partly sunny, cloudy, rain/snow).The second segment shows the temperature at the clock's location andalso the temperature at the location of a remote wireless sensor thatreports to the weather clock via radio waves. (Users can place theremote sensor outdoors or indoors up to 90 feet away--in a garden,greenhouse, wine cellar, or baby's room.) Also available areminimum/maximum temperatures at the two locations over a select period,and those temperatures' trends (rising, falling, or steady).

The third segment shows the humidity and the humidity's comfort levelat the clock's location. Using a bar graph, the fourth segment trackslocal barometric pressure over 24 hours. The fifth segment shows thecurrent barometric pressure. The sixth segment graphically illustratesthe moon's phases with eight icons, flashes the icon for the currentphase, displays the tidal phase, and, on demand, calls up 100-yearmoon-phase information for any date from 1990 to 2089. The bottomsegment shows the time by hour/minute/second and hour/minute/day/ date,and also tells you whether the clock's alarm has been set. Users canset up both the 8-by-7-3/4-inch clock (3/4 inch thick) and the4-1/8-by-2-3/4-inch sensor on flat surfaces on wall mounts, and you can setthem to show the temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit. The clockoperates on four AA batteries, and the sensor requires two AAbatteries. (All batteries included.) --Fred Brack ... Read more

Features

  • Monitor and remote sensor stand on flat surfaces or can be mounted on walls
  • Weather-clock displays time, weather forecast, indoor/outdoor temperatures

3-0 out of 5 stars Indespensible but problematic
I love having the information. You have to be careful to set the altitude adjustment precisely; then the readings match the weather bureau with incredible accuracy.

However, the radio transmission of the temperature can be unreliable, especially in rain. I almost always lose the outside temperature reading during any kind of even modest shower, and my remote sensor is no more than 35 feet from the unit.

The instructions for setting the unit were written by someone with cognitive problems. Good luck....try to anticipate the illogical, and you will eventually figure it out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!
We live just below the arctic circle in Alaska and wondered whether a home weather station would accurately and reliably operate in extreme conditions. We've had this product for 3 years and it works like a charm!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Weather Station
This product is very good - but not great. Surprisingly, the temperature readings are off by about 2 degrees. I would have expected that this would be "right on the money." The wireless communication with the remote temperature sensor works very well. Oregon Scientific can't decide whether to calibrate your altitude in meters or feet - the directions say one thing, their web site the opposite! Overall, however, it does a consistent job which is what really counts with weather. A lot of fun! ... Read more

Umbrella or sunscreen? Take away the guesswork with thiscable-free weather forecaster. The forecast for the next 12 to 24hours--sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, or even snowy--revealsitself in icons on the liquid crystal display.

4-0 out of 5 stars Forecasting is only fair, but useful thermometer/hygrometer
This "forecaster" only does a fair job forecasting. A sun/clouds/rain icon forecast is based on changes in barometric pressure, and is fooled a some of the time.

As a thermometer/hygrometer, though, it's been great. Having multiple sensors has allowed me to monitor outside, my basement (for humidity in the summer) and my children's rooms.

The clock is nice, but I really didn't need it. It is accurate though. ... Read more

From the below-sea-level deserts of Death Valley to the snowyglaciers of Mount Rainier, this accurate altimeter tells hikers andmountaineers how high they are—-and how low they've been there. Agraphing function displays accumulative vertical ascent and descent,changes between two elevations, and altitude history for the past 12hours. The device measures altitude from 1,600 feet below sea level to23,000 feet above, and temperature from 40 degrees below zero to 158degrees on the Fahrenheit scale (metric readings are alsoprogrammable). Barometric pressure, a calendar/alarm clock, and theweather forecast are also displayed. The alarm can be set to go offwhen a certain altitude is reached—-a safety feature for those whoshouldn't go above a certain elevation. A timer counts up to one secondshort of 100 hours. Rubber side grips and a tapered shape enable asecure hold, and a vinyl case with a clear window helps protect theunit from scratches and the elements. An attached neck cord allows theuser to wear the altimeter, even with the case on. Two 3-volt buttonbatteries are included. --Ann Bieri ... Read more
