Advice Needed On Inexpensive PWS
« on: July 02, 2022, 09:23:33 AM »
After many years and many replacement TX37U-IT (or TX6U-IT) remote sensors, itís time to replace our La Crosse Model #WS-8117U-IT-C atomic clock (ref pic below). We like that is has indoor/outdoor temps, moon phases, and day/date features. I hate to replace it because this was a gift from out daughter but I can no longer find a sensor for it. Not having the outside temp is driving me to distraction.

My wife and I were thinking of getting something with a little more info on it, I/O humidity and barometric pressure perhaps, while retaining the features of our clock. Probably one of those under $100 weather stations. Searching for one, the choices are mind boggling. Iíd prefer battery operated and we donít need a computer hookup. We just want to know the basic weather conditions outside our home. Does anyone have a recommendation, if not on a specific unit, then a brand?



PS
I did look around here and did not find the info I wanted.

I like AcuRite, they have many solutions to pick from and provide good products that are on the cheaper scale of weather sensors and displays.

@chief-david, that looks like a nice unit, especially for the money, however I think it's a bit more than I wanted (though it is tempting :-k ).

@worachj, I will check them out.

Thanks to both of you for your assistance.

Well, after a lot of looking, I had it narrowed down to the AcuRite 02027A1. Then I stumbled upon Newentor stations, of which I've never heard (a search here revealed nothing). They seem to have excellent reviews and the missus and I really like the display on their Q7 Weather Station. Plus, it has all the features we wanted. So, I'm done, this is the one. I never realized there were so many PWS under $100 out there.

Thanks for all the help, it is greatly appreciated.

PS
I'd still like to find a sensor for our old La Cross unit. Like I said, it was a gift from our daughter and it's still functioning well. I'd hate to waste it  #-o
