My beloved weather station failed after two months! The backlight went dim over a few days and pretty much stopped working. Since I know LIDL don't stock these any more and I don't want a refund, I decided to repair it myself. One of the two backlight white LEDs had overheated and failed, which robbed power from the second LED. I replaced them both. Needed basic soldering skills but not particularly difficult since the unit came apart easily and the LED backlight board is quite accessible on the left side of the display. Replacement LEDs are available from eBay or could be salvaged from a discarded cool-white LED lamp.
I love this unit, it's better than my Oregon one which cost much more. Only small difficulty is cancelling the alarm which can be fiddly if you get your fingers over the top which is where the snooze/dimmer touch sensor is. Apart from that, it's smart and works very well. A bit of Chinglish in the user manual but it's fairly easy to use.
Had one, returned it. The colour display can only be seen if you look directly at it. Useless as a clock or weather station if you want to look at it from across the room or odd angle. Standard LCD screen is far better suited.
These are cheaper on Banggood and Gearbest if you're happy to wait a few weeks.
Has anyone actually got one of them and how reliable and how good are they?
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eeGJaQs2BJs watch this (nerd)
That was a gripe I had but noticed this:- 1 x Loskii DC-003 Special USB Power Cable
No mains adapter?
Yes, sorry, it is for most people, but there are many of these things about, so this seems expensive compared to others (just my opinion). If people particularly like 'your' one, then it'll get hot (which it is already!) So it seems good :)
It is what it is is... I thought the hot or cold was based on the price, not if you liked the item?
It doesn't include a wind speed measuring device or a rain guage, so no better than any of the other cheaper devices so voted cold. I don't think it can be called a weather satiton
This sounds similar to the - Netatmo Healthy Home Coach?
these are crap. when viewed at an angle, the lcd appears reversed and its not clear when trying to read the time. also when plugged in, the screen is washed out. the weather, temperature and humidity sensors are probably inaccurate aswell.
What, Weather station ?? Is there any way to upgrade it to "babestation" !!! It will become deal of the year ....
Problem is device is inside your house so it's guesstimating what's occurring outside, that's why people are asking about external sensors. I really want one that automagically uploads to a website...
The description says "Thermometer Hygrometer", which would lead me to believe the device is doing it itself.
No sign of an outside sensor so the forecasting won't be any better than the Met Office's!
Back at £2.69p btw.
Anyone having problems with this app, di you have to have an Internet connection for weather and time to update, mine only seems to work with Internet connection, I thought it was supposed to use network signal same as phone /text? I've tried changing settings but no change!
I could say FUBAR 8)
Ah well, I went for it and blew 10p of my google rewards, just hope I dont get buyer remorse....actually looks quite a nice app at first glance, location spot on straight away and decent interface, thanks OP!
That's a serious kaffuffle there, huh?.
Back to full price now! £30.75
I got one of their alarm clocks a year back and it uses the DFC radio in Germany, so it uses European time. You can correct it if your are in a different zone. But iirc by only +- 1 hour. Check the manual before purchase.
Thanks More info - https://uk.hama.com/00136222/hama-ews-200-weather-station-black Has an SRP of £30.99
Don't need, ordered!
Seems to be just like the ALDI one I bought today for £19.99 except the ALDI is a colour display. Some negative reviews on ALDI but seems to be working here. They'll probably be half price when they mark them down. [img]https://cdn.aldi-digital.co.uk/Sempre-Vertical-Weather-Station-A.jpg?o=FoUBIVXRlbdl7o3Dn3kZDzxQNucj&V=uE1z[/img]
£40.84 showing here, so ice cold from me.
The main unit was working fine for 6 months but now goes through batteries every 2 weeks, tried normal and rechargeable ones. I have contacted Argos and sent back for a full refund.
Maybe contact the manufacturer saying Argos no longer sell them and see if they will replace it, you would no doubt get a new model.
Its the main unit. It shows a low battery and weak display. As soon as i put new batterys in they last about an hour.
Main unit or outdoor sensor? I am still on the ones it came with in all 3 units
If you send it back will they refund the postage
Also, does the door have to remain open?
That's great. Please come to my house and use your super skills to tell me the temperature to the nearest 0.1 of a degree, the humidity and wind speed. Avert 15 seconds like this weather station does. Also do you have a screen built in because I like that feature?
Why wold you use one of these? I mean you can get a decent weather forecast using accuweather or something like that, or better still I could stick my head out the door.
Clas Ohlson and Maplin usually have a very similar unit on offer at £49.99/59.99.
if there are others weather stations that offer the same functionality cheaper, do tell... I haven't found any that can upload data direct to the internet without a pc being connected.
I meant getting date from other weather stations on a smart phone. :D
I have a cheap one which cost about 18 quid, it has a clock so is handy for that, and it tells me indoor and outdoor humidity, temperature, and pressure. It means I always put the right coat on before going out, albeit more expensively than opening the door first, the humidity sensor keeps me alert to whether I am likely to get mould growth starting again inside and need to use the dehumidifier, but other than that, they are just toys, whether or not you pay 18 quid as I did or 160 quid for this, it depends how much you like toys, but in any case Amazon have a couple of models for from £119 to £139 which appear to offer all the finctionality this does, and better reviews
There are hundreds of independent weather stations over the UK where people record the weather and upload it to the wunderground website and have been for well over a decade. Here's the UK sites http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/ListStations.asp?selectedCountry=United+Kingdom there are also a few other weather station networks by Davis and Oregon Scientific that crowd source weather recording. It's a hobby, knowing what speed the big gust outside was or how much rain fell can be interesting.
You could upload the data from a weather station to Weather Underground manually using a smartphone but doing it every 7 seconds, 24 hours a day would get rather tedious, rather quickly ;) You would of course also need a weather station first so it would make sense to buy one that can connect and upload via wifi automatically. The price for this one is very good in comparison to others but I'm not tempted because the reviews suggest poor reliability.
Can you provide the link for the £30 cashback for the weather stations please. The only link I can find for £30 cashback is for the netatmo thermostat.
It works well with the thermostat and helps it control the heating more efficiently by feeding it the outside temperature.
Yep, £119 now...
Has this expired?
Isn't the point of a thermostat that you keep the internal temperature the same and the thermostat turns the hearing on and off to achieve that? Mine is set for 18 degrees regardless of external temperature so inside the house is how I like it, not sure how a weather station would improve this set Up?
Hi I can't find the warehouse deal? All I can see on warehouse deals is one that over £100, would some kind person person please point me in the right direction please. Thanks
Love mine. If you get this, you can get a rain gauge for it, and there is a wind gauge coming too (it's been announced but that was months ago).
I like Oregon stuff, their outdoor sensors seem to last unlike the cheap unbranded models you get from supermarkets. I have a couple of sets like this waiting to replace my EW92 thermometer, its remote sensor has been outdoors over five years now and still works perfectly, even through the couple of harsh winters when it got down to -15. Hot from me.
Ordered & despatched and only came to £67.73 using super saver delivery :) Perfect addition for my Netatmo heating controller.
This makes a joke of their Prime deals day!
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003DCTII2 ... seems slightly better value to me.
Damn. Bought mine on amazon prime day in Germany. Was roughly 82 quid. I knew that prime day was just crap. ;)

Hi did you get on OK wil your cashback? They are doing this again at £30 this month and I'm thinking of getting one
Comment The Nest thermostat is the one owned by Google. They have a home automation platform called "works with Nest". You'll see items like the philips Hue bulbs and Nest Protect smoke alarm. There are more open platforms to get devices to operate slightly. Search on the net for IFTTT
Works brilliantly along with their thermostat and has helped me to identify areas within the house where I was losing heat so I can insulate/repair seals accordingly. Nest is a bit too "big brother" for my liking. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/google/11325220/Nest-thermostat-now-knows-when-youre-sleeping.html
What is the NEST kit you mention....didnt know about this
Seems a bit much when the Maplin one which ranges between £60 - 90 depending on colour of offer at time does a good job and mines been uploading for the last year.
Might buy this because I have wanted a station for ages but don't like the fact it doesn't have a negative display like the other 'clone' models out there. Also does this have a Barometer? Does anyone know how reliable it is? It's been on sale at Lidl before. Apparently Oregon Scientific stations are poor quality and cheap and cheerful ones are better.
Comment Think you may have just highlighted how pointless this device is.
I realise you're being sarcastic, so don't take this as moaning or uppity, but I've worked at several radio stations. Often the studios don't have windows and are buried in the deepest, darkest, most soundproof bit of the building... and the presenters barely have time to take a pee while they're on air! Not only that, they're forecasting for a huge region, not just their car park, which is why the forecasts often sound ridiculous!
Or just look out of the window. Which reminds me , I was working outside of a radio station and the forecast according to them was cloudy with a possibility of showers, if they actually looked out of the window they may have noticed it had been peeing down for an hour. Lol
