Pro Weather Station 00634
« on: November 13, 2019, 12:19:40 PM »
Well, I wasn't getting many hits with my Lacrosse Technology question, and there seemed to be a number of WIFI issues reported in the reviews.  So, I'm looking at Acurite.  I can't help but feel that if I get interested in doing more, I'll want something more like a Davis station. 

But, I found that Acurite has a fairly simple weather station 00634.  The base is LCD and doesn't require power.  This makes the unit portable which is desirable for me.  When I searched this site I didn't get any hits for this weather station.  Presumably that's because either (a) the station doesn't give the type of data most want here or (b) the unit is just a cheap disposable piece of junk that Acurite produces to compete in the market.  Hopefully the answer is not (b)!

That's a 3n1.  It doesn't do wind direction or rainfall.

Nincehelser beat me to it, but I agree with his assessment as to why there isn't much interest here. The lack of a wind vane is the first thing I noticed.

Thanks, I do realize that. If I start wanting those other features, I'll want to pay for a good one.

The size of the 3 in 1 isn't really any smaller than a 5n1. I would get the 5 in 1. The temperature will be a lot more accurate, and you will have a rain gauge.

If I go this route, I'll probably consider a Davis. for one thing, I actually like the display on the Davis unit.   But, this will take some saving up.

:shock: Heresy I tell you! How dare you like a display that's not in the full spectrum of visible light and only provides nothing more than pertinent, easy to decipher info!

You'll never work in this town again!

Now now, careful with the colourful language.  ;)
