Solar Powered Wireless Weather Station
Today we are going to review the solar powered wireless weather station from Ambient Weather.
We researched and reviewed a large number of personal reports that dealt with everything from installation to software updates and the final end-user experience.
The unit has an indoor and an outdoor sensor array for you to get a complete picture of the meteorological conditions both inside and outside of your house.
An outdoor sensor array records temperature, wind speed and direction, humidity, rainfall, Solar and UV radiation.
Then the indoor sensor array records temperature, barometric pressure and humidity inside.
This particular unit also comes with a color display unit, which shows all the information in an easy to read format, whilst also providing you with extra details such as rate of rainfall currently occurring and dew point and providing you with graphs for barometric pressure, temperature and humidity to showcase detailed and easy to interpret trends.
There is also an Apple app and Apple products should work effortlessly with the software of this unit.
