Product overview

• Wireless weather station allows you to check indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind speed, wind direction and rain fall
• Records a temperature range of 0°C - 60°C indoors and -40°C - 65°C outdoors so you can dress appropriately for the weather

How does this weather station work?
The various sensors included with this weather station allow you to wirelessly transmit the data collected up to 100m to your base unit. This lets you know what the weather is like without even looking or going outside. The sensors and the base unit are battery powered, giving you a portable unit you can carry around the house with you.

What data can I view with this weather station?
You can view and record a variety of data with this weather station. This includes the indoor and outdoor temperature, the humidity and air pressure as well as wind speed and direction and rain fall. It is viewable on the base unit that comes in the package but can also be recorded and stored on a computer to look back on at a later date.

What advantage do I have connecting it to my computer?
By connecting the weather station to your computer with the included USB cable, you are able to save the gained data to identify trends and weather patterns throughout set timelines. You can show your data over a 24 hour period or longer in a graph form so you can see the varying factors of that timespan.

Can I buy spare sensors for this weather station?
There are a range of spare sensors available for this weather station. The links can be found below.

N78NF – Spare Steel Mast Tube

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had this bit of fun kit installed in garden for about 2 weeks now. It is site about 30m from house and mounted on 8 ft pole. Its survived 3 intense storms in that time. Like other users I suspect the wind speed records significantly below the actual speed, wind direction vane does tend to spin wildly so a minor modification will be forthcoming (once the storms pass!). It was really interesting to be able to say how much rain we've had in the last week (over 80mm!). Leaving aside the suspected inaccuracies this is a good fun piece of gadgetry, and always proves to be a talking point with friends and neighbours. Fairly good value for the cost, would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit is a fantastic piece of equipment. Very easy to set up, even if it is rather long winded (excuse the pun). Over the past year I have been using an LED Max/Min thermometer located on a conservatory window, this is as you would expect was influenced by the conservatory temperature, making it difficult to get accurate readings. Hence the decision to change to this unit. The software that was recommended (Cumulus) is very very good, and also very easy to set up. With this loaded you get a quicker and more up to date data delivery. I would recommend this unit to anyone especially at it present price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit(Fine Offset is the brand name) has a world wide following. It is easy to set up but needs the rain recorder to be positioned in a stable position and not on the pole as shown, It seems to be quite accurate. The software supplied works well but there is better software free on the web (such as sandysoft) there are also sites that have a bullitin board where everything about the unit is discussed and modifications are suggested. Its only drawback is the rather dim lcd display, but as it is mostly used with a computer readout, this is not to much of a problem. There are two versions around, they are WH1080 and WH1081, one has a radio controlled clock the other hasn't. Overall I'm pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good unit. Must restate that the rain detector needs to be in a stable position as vibration caused by the wind is read as rain fall. The first day I fitted the unit was a windy DRY day but managed to clock up over 5 inches of rain !! Now refitted with the barometer and rain sensor to the bottom of the mast. I moved both as this helps to reduce the weight which caused a pendulum effect when windy. Will look at alternative software, not very impressed with that supplied. The sensor cables are much too long when installed as shown in the booklet. Overall very pleased despite having to return a fauly first unit. Much better than my previous weather station and excellent value for money. Friends have now bought the same system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had this for a few weeks now, and nothing but problems. Basically, after a couple of days, you lose communication between the station and the unit. The only way to get it back is to go to the garden and reset the station. Tried to experiment to rule out other factors, but still happens if you sit the station on the unit so there is zero range. Maplin quickly replaced the transmitter, but I have the same problem again. I have yet to collect any meaningful readings and now need to return to Maplin to see what can be done

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, accurate and reliable piece of kit. Very easy to set up using a standard TV aerial mounting for the pole. No problem at all re. range from receiver to antenna and I've got foil backed insulation all through the house which I thought might pose problems to the signal. Would like to see option for SD card data back up as if a battery change out is required, all data is lost and it is not possible to download the stored data to a PC as there is insufficient power to transfer data via USB (when batteries are low). I substituted the supplied easy weather program for the Cumulus program which gave a more user friendly interface and an actual weather forecast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This unit is great when it works. The trouble is that it doesn't work for very long! Every so often (it can be hours it can be days) it stops passing the information to the PC and so website uploads stop. The unit still talks to the station, but it's no good if it doesn't pass the data to the PC. I've spent hours and hours trying to solve it with different computers, operating systems, USB cables and USB ports to no avail. The only fix is to reset the unit thereby losing all the history. Very frustrating. And so I've sent it back to Maplin "to be looked at".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brought the first one while away in Bristol, got it home to find that the anemometer was defective. Returned it to my local branch at Farnborough who changed it for a complete new station with no trouble, but 2 weeks later the rain gauge failed. After speaking to customer services Farnborough branch changed it yet again. Set the new station up, the heavens opened, garden flooded, but the rain gauge said ФЗЈno rainФЗШ Spoke to customer services yet again, and it was changed by the good folks at Farnborough, so far this one (no 4) seema ok, but it has only been a few days CanФЗЦt knock their customer service, maybe I have been very unlucky! Or maybe the product quality is not that good! Give it 3 stars but thats more for the customer services

Could you have more than one of these units/transmitters working in the same area or will they interfere with each other?

Asked by: Pete
Yes, you can run 2 base stations from 1 set of outside equipment. I have done this for years now, with no problems at all.

The base station and the transmitter aren't speaking to each other. Batteries and connections checked ok. What do I do now?

Asked by: Alibali
The factory default operation can correct most issues regarding this. By taking the batteries out of all the products for 24 hours can send the units back to factory default.

Given this for Christmas but not sure if it will work with an iPhone, think my husband was told it does but want to be sure before I unpack it.  Many thanks 

Asked by: Jeanuk53
This unit has no native iphone support but it will report to weather underground who have an app for iphone. You can monitor your weather station via this app. The weather station has to be connected to a computer with Internet access. If you or your husband are techy you can build a raspberry pi server to feed weather underground without using your computer.
