WMR100 windsensor try to fix or get a WGR800
« on: June 23, 2018, 04:33:12 AM »

trying to rejuvenate my setup that has been left unloved for a few years.

The window sensor of my WMR100 is not working. The batteries had corroded, I fixed that, I now get 6 V at the PCB inside the sensor (yes, I opened it) and when I insert the batteries the red LED blinks once, but never again?

Is that normal, don't recall anymore how it was?

Does it blink regularly or only when there is wind?

I suppose it is dead and not worth my time to re-open and try to figure out the problem.

So is the WGR800 compatible with the WMR100 base station?

Searching the web it looks like it should be.

Does the WGR800 contain temp and humidity sensors like the WMR100 wind sensor or do I need to get an extra sensor for those?

If not, which one is recommended for outside usage?

Thanks for your attention.
