Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have owned one of these for two years. It does what it says on the box, however reliability is a big issue. After eight months of use, the base station failed to receive information from the remote sensor. Maplin were very efficient in replacing the entire item. Six months further on the same problem occurred on the new station. By this time it was out of guarantee. Maplin, as an act of good will, agreed to replace just the transmitter, but this did not rectify the problem. The only way the remote can now send its information is if it is within one metre of the base station and therefore cannot be outdoors. Summary: nice unit, but reliability?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from for anyone who knows how to use meteorological equipment this is pretty good. The 2 ft long pole can be attached to a post / pole to get the desired accuracy for the anemometer (7ft+) the long wires allows the rain bucket to be located on the ground to avoid under-reading from wind exposure. The temperature sensor can be placed at 1.4m above the ground, and in a superior radiation shield for better accuracy if required (all thermometers over-read without radiation protection). The console part displays a lot of useful info like wind chill, dew point, and times max and mins were recorded

Rated 3 out of 5 by from At first this product gave me hours of frustration. The transmitter would only talk to the received if they were both indoors and very close to each other. I tried moving them closer, further apart, indoors, outdoors and even tried an obscure suggestion that I warm the transmitter on the radiator for a while, all to no avail. A replacement transmitter gave exactly the same poor results until I tried more powerful batteries and it all started working. So my advice is that if you buy one of these weaklings, try Duracel Lithium batteries - they finally gave the thing enough punch to get through my double glazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got this weather station in 2009, and it was brilliant. It produced accurate readings, and gave forecasts that, usually, were very accurate too. The receiver had a nice large screen that showed the information very clearly. It displayed all sorts of data: the time, internal and external temperature and humidity, pressure with a time graph, rainfall and wind speed. I would have rated this weather station 5 stars without thinking, but then, the anemometer jammed (probably rust). I did find an anemometer replacement, but by which time, the weather station had long ago been thrown away. It lasted about 3 years, and was worth the money, especially since you can but replacements for mere pounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have had it running for about 18 months and over two winters. After a year the wind speed seized up due to water in the bearing. A couple of quid got a new bearing and I filed some plastic away to make a rain groove to let the water out. No more problems. A proper weather station would cost ???300 so the price is not too bad if it lasts. Some debris recently broke the wind cups and I am pleased to say the spares from Maplin were only ???2.49 - brilliant. My last one from another company only lasted a year before packing up so not too bad so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bit of kit & great value when on offer. Easy installation & clear instructions, cables are longer than requred but cable ties are provided so not too much of an issue! Signal is good too! I mounted the remote unit on the side of my garage (don't forget that you need to mount the unit to something, I used a TV aerial mast) which is in the back garden & the main display is in my study at the front of the house so no problems there then. Overall a good buy, would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant bit of kit, and at ???29.99 and with free delivery from Maplin a steal! I have the instruments set up on top of a hill OVER ONE HUNDRED METERS AWAY and, with a clear line-of-sight between the instruments on the hilltop and base station on the windowsill it works perfectly! It has already withstood a pretty good battering (they are mounted four-foot high pole secured with four wire 'guys', with the rain gauge lower down on a separate smaller post around one foot off the ground). Up here in the Northwest Highlands I am sure it will be well tested! Had thought about the next model up for PC connectivity and wind direction as well as speed but decided to spend less because I was not sure about the range capabilities. Now that I know how well these stations work I would not hesitate to recommend every single one of them! I look forward to upgrading already but am very pleased with this one too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After owning this for a few days, so far so good. The temperature seems to be a bit on the low side, compared with my outside thermometer, but I do not know the accuaracy of this. The manual was a big let down, but thanks to another person on here who provided a link to another, this has been no major issue. Yes the wires are too long, but this is due to the fact that the sensor can be mounted elsewhere, hence the need for the long wiring. Very reasonable price, and hopefully will give me a good few years of use.

data reading are way off as its been raining for the last 3days but the monitor is showing sun and the wind readings are showing little or no wind on windy days I have replaced the batteries still the same is it looks like the sensor is not recording.

Asked by: tgsa
From the information provided it would appear that in all probability you have a faulty sensor.

Does the station come with the other components, rain gauge, anemometer, etc. Also, does it work with software, as an earlier stn, I bought from you did? Regards, T White

Asked by: trevtheweth
Yes, this comes with the rain gague, anemometer and thermal and pressure sensors in the transmitter unit. This is only a local weather station however, and has no features to export data to any external software or hardware.

My weather station N25FR stopped working, and I deduced that the base unit was faulty. Although you confirmed that this part is not supplied as a spare, would you be able to give me details of the manufacturer so that I can get some technical advise.

I've replaced the batteries after the remote unit stopped displaying data. The LED does not display when the batteries are replaced.  The only thing I cannot find an answer to is regarding the display ' Sensor:1/2/3' and the transmit symbol. Any ideas?

Asked by: Smiler
bring the outdoor sender or all senders indoors alongside base station, pop covers off (from time to time whatever) clean spiders webs out and spray any mechanisms with ie WD 40 eg, insert new batteries after cleaning their terminals if grotty, smear petroleum jelly upon them when clean will avoid dampness causing high resistance between battery terminals and sender surfaces. Re-insert new batteries if they were not already new. side by side acquisition may well be easily achieved when the senders can be returned outdoors. I found the rain gauge unit was clogged with webs last year and cover removed the 'sea-saw' device can be manually operated and a record achieved upon the base station proving it is ok! The 1.5v power source is prone to power loss with dirty connections as upon a motorcycle and motor car so basic electrical maintenance will prolong battery life and maintain performance of the system.
