WS-1173 Humidity Calibration
« on: October 21, 2012, 08:57:00 PM »
Hi folks,

I'm interesting in purchasing a WS-1173 to replace my 10+ year old OS BAR913HGA which has a dead barometer and other problems.

The product description for the WS-1173 indicates it supports indoor/outdoor humidity calibration.
However, this is not discussed anywhere in the User Manual.

I sent an query to Ambient, but was wondering if anyone here can confirm if this station supports humidity cal?
If so, I assume the operating instructions would be the same as detailed in the WS-1172 manual?
I'm hoping it's just an oversight in the 1173 user manual.

This sounds like a useful feature.
The humidity readings on the BAR913 were always way off, especially the outdoor sensor, with no way to cal.

Poway, CA

EDIT: Got a reply from Ed at Ambient. The WS-1173 does NOT support humidity cal. He has corrected the website.
        Ed indicates humidity cal will be added to the firmware in the next few months. I'm postponing my order until then.
