“There are three models of this Digi-Tech GMBH wireless...”

Written on: 15/12/2005 by Bertie (27 reviews written)

Good Points
It does everything claimed for it.
Clear and easily read display.
Lightweight and portable.
Very cheap, but only in price!
Three year warranty.
Has the bonus of clock and alarm function.

Bad Points
I'd have liked a digital readout of barometric pressure.

General Comments
There are three models of this Digi-Tech GMBH wireless weather station available, but only in style as the digital displays are the same in all three.



The weather station consists of two units; a transmitter powered by a 2032 lithium battery and measuring 3 1/4 X 2 1/4 X 1 inches may be hung up if desired and although appearing to be reasonably weatherproof, (the battery screw-on cover has a rubber O-ring gasket), the instructions recommend protection from rain. The stated transmitting range is 30 meters, but I found the unit still worked at about 40 meters.



The receiver unit has six LCD displays. From top to bottom they are:-

Weather symbols - sun, clouds and rain.

Humidity.

Indoor temperature.

Outdoor temperature.

Year/date/day.

Time with alarm function.



All housed in an attractive mid-grey substantial plastic case measuring 4 1/4 X 3 3/4 X 1 1/2 inches backwards tiltable to about 25 degrees and powered by two AAA batteries,

it receives radio signals from the transmitter unit in the 433 MHz band so is safely away from most sources of potential interference.



Included in the package is a comprehensive and easily understood instruction booklet.



Having a greenhouse, I'm sure to find the ability to check on its temperature, especially on sunny days in Summer, without leaving my chair a big plus and at £7.99 from Lidl it just has to be a bargain especially when I found the temperature readouts were within less than 1 degree when checked against a mercury thermometer.
