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 4 out of 5 by from The system outdoor sensors are very easy to set up however i agree with the other reviewer that there appears to be far to much cable. I am a little concerned as the only way of making a neat job is to wind the cable around the mast several times perhaps weaking the structure? allow water to collect? The software supplied is disappointing as it does not allow easy manuplation of the graphs (axis etc.). very basic! after all the main purpose is to see how the weather has changed over time in nice graphical format. this is the main reason why the weather station does not get 5 stars. Will need to wait and see how the outside sensors cope with the winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this unit in order to help me teach my kids about the weather. Very easy to set up, took about 15 mins. Only thing was i found i had an awful lot of excess on the connecting cables but better to have to much than too little. Will try both lots of software and see what i like best. Overall, buy this one at the price its a steal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a good piece of kit. It can be awkward to set up and use with the 'touch screen'. It is almost impossible to clean as well withouth causing havoc! I notice that several posters note that the outside temperature reads seveal degees higher, this is due to the tastfull admialty pattern battleship grey of the mini stephenson screen / cover. I have repainted it white, and secure it to the mast using cable ties for outside use. I have found the rain guage to be inaccurate to a factor of 2. This is easily compensated for in the Cumulus configuration-calibration menus. This was found by comparing the rain guages readings with a simple glass measuring guage. Taken as a whole, a good piece of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just bought a new one of these; the first one lasted years but finally outdoor relative humidity packed up and the transmitter unit started eating batteries -- new spare transmitter would not talk to my old base station -- shame, as the thing does a good job. A bit fiddly to set up and the instructions are not the clearest but, when you've got the hang of the way the base station works, the device functions well. PC software creates interesting records -- only the rainfall history is problematical -- seems to go on accumulating e.g. won't start a new month at zero (or am I missing a trick?). Tips: 1. Paint the louvred cover of the transmitter white or you'll get exaggerated outdoor temperature readings when there is not much wind and full sun. 2. Put some gauze or fine mesh over the drain holes in the rain gauge and block other holes on underside (e.g. Blutak) or spiders will get in there and tie the seesaw up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stops connecting to the base unit after a few minutes. Re-set the transmitter, and that only last a few minutes. For such an expensive item I would have expected better quality from Maplin. I will be returning it for a refund. There must be better units for sale out there for the same price.
Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to use. Once you have set it up using the supplied Easy Weather and set the sampling interval, I recommend using the free My Weather app. (Set it up to say that it is a Fine Offset weather station.) With that you get nice graphs and other goodies. You might need to fix it to a longer post.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unreliable Now on my second weather station. As others have stated transmission and receiving is VERY hit and miss. The first station was replaced as signal was lost intermittently sometimes for minutes sometimes for days. The second station is now going the same way. I have borrowed a receiving unit from my son and placed it next to mine. His works consistently, but mine cuts out and loses all external transmitted information. Tried changing batteries and swapping between units but still with the same results. the fact that my sons receiving unit works consistently with my transmitter shows the problem again to be in my receiving unit. What, Maplin, is the issue. I would NOT recommend anyone to buy this product as its performance is so poor and intermittent.
Date published: 2015-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm completely new to the hobby of weather watching but thought it might be fun. Santa helped but selection of this model was very much done by size of box and the offer that Maplin were running on price. The unit was complete (includes cable ties), very easy to assemble and worked first time, which always bodes well. I ran it 'stand alone', taped on the greenhouse door frame for a couple of days. At low levels, the wind direction is very difficult to measure because of turbulence, so I recommend that you consider where you will finally install it to avoid disappointment. A few days later, I lifted it 30ft up on to my antenna mast, just clear of the roof and there it is today. At the start of January, it was subject to 50+ mph winds and 80mm rain in one day, without missing a beat. Although the supplied software is adequate, I've just downloaded another program which talks to this unit and in a couple of hours, have produced a very smart looking, real time, web site, driven directly from the sensor. Now I'm looking at the forums on the subject, it's clear that this unit is well priced and in quality terms fits at the top end of the entry level for weather stations. The more serious experimenter will need to pay around 5 times the price of this unit to get any better. I would recommend using alternative PC software if you want to share/publish your weather data, though. I'm impressed! John

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Given a weather Forcaster for Chistmas, found the screen dull and not easy to read also the wireless bit to the screen from the outside sensors has now packed up. I have checked batteries all ok still no responce.
Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have had it set up in the garden for about 3 weeks and now the connection to the base unit is really unreliable, meaning readings are often missed, specially during the night. It's not like it's very far away or anything. How can you keep max/min weather records if you don't know half the time what the max/min is because the equipment has lost the connection? In other words it doesn't work. The screen could be clearer too.
Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun bit of kit. Not particulary accurate, but perfectly usable. Did not have any problems with the anemometer bearing, but did modify the wind direction vane. Stuck a small plastic sheet extension to the existing vane, this stops it spinning round so much and gives a more consistent indication. Pressure, temperature and humidity agree to about 10% with another sensor unit I had. Rainfall seems to under-read by about 20-25%, but have not had much rain yet to really test it. Display unit looses reception for a few minutes every now and then, some other interference presumably. Mounted on top of a 3 mtr length of 4 x 2 timber attached to a fence. Drilled a hole perpendicular into one end face (22mm dia I think). I could then put the supplied mounting pole into the hole and raise the wind sensor to about 4 mtr above ground. The sensor leads are long, so the transmitter and rain gauge can be mounted lower down (have to clean out interior of rain gauge periodically - spiders like to nest in it !).

Look for something else where the screen is clearly visible . Very poor
Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've checked out lots of weather stations and this is definitely the cheapest out of the professional variety which allow a permanent data connection to connect to a website or other logging. I agree with other reviewers that the precision on some instruments can leave something to be desired, but as noted, it isn't a scientific instrument. If you want that, you need to pay a few hundred pounds minimum. Mine has worked well for about a year using Cumulus software but then the USB port on the unit seemed to fail and I can't get any software to talk to it. The screen works fine, but I have now lost my weather data logger. :-(
Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well, I agree with some of the previous reviews. This is more a toy than a 'weather station'. I don't need to mention that is very (VERY) far of professional or scientific instrument. Why? because is totally unreliable. The accuracy is poor that it is utterly unreliable. When I said accuracy I mean every single measure (temperature -in-out, wind, rain, etc.etc) is unreliable. The manual does not deserve to be called as such. Now, having said that, you can have an approximation of what is going on (+/- 40%). In addition, it is a nice 'illusion of having a weather station' to see the anemometer and wind direction moving and spinning most of the time. Would I recommend this station? Even at reduced price is not value 4 money.
Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought it to replace an existing W-8681 which had lost its wind speed and direction sensors after falling off its pole. Even though the picture on the website clearly shows a display marked "Radio Controlled", referring to the fact that it has a built-in DCF time receiver, I received a display marked WH-1081 and the outdoor transmitter clearly does not have a DCF time receiver (when the batteries are inserted, it gives one flash of the LED whereas one with a DCF receiver should give five flashes as it searches for the DCF signal). I definitely need the DCF clock. Radio amateurs beware! The WH1081 which I have received from Maplin operates on 433.900 MHz, which is bang in the middle of the 70cms amateur band - definitely not good news. It appears that other WH1080 models (WH1080PC) and my original W-8681 operate on 868.300 MHz - well out of any amateur band.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Largely Pleased Have had this unit for nearly 2 years now and I'm largely please with it.Had some teething troubles for the first few days until I realised that the base unit is fussy about where its located.Find where it likes to be and it works fine.The main problem is the wind gyro,it seems accurate only at lower speeds up to around 30mph although I have recorded a gust of 63mph. Outdoor temperature is about 1C too high during the day but overnight minimums seem more accurate.The rain gauge is excellent if mounted separate from the pole. The rain gauge failed a few months back but a replacement was only a few pounds,so no grumbles.
Date published: 2016-11-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable Bought this a few months back. The display has such poor contrast it can barely be read, the USB link from the display to the PC continually locks up meaning that you lose hours of data and finally after 3 months of use the rain gauge just stops working, which is something I see other people have also had trouble with. Mine has gone in the bin and I now have a brand new Oregon station which is immeasurably better. Don't waste your money,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amateur Radio Weather Greetings, this is the 3rd winter using this weather station, the first lot of batteries lasted well over 18 months, which was a big suprise to me, I have replaced them with some high power units, the system is up at 20ft, and has no trouble at all, I have it connected to my laptop and it updates every 60 seconds to the Weather Underground and to the Met Office, I do maintain the units and check them after every winter and before every winter to make sure there is no damage and things have not come lose, I also use cumulus for the stations software, I prefer the look of it, for the money you cant really go wrong with this station, no, its not a Davies unit, that reflects in its price, I have no complaints with this item, its definately value for money, and I give it a 10/10..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable I have had three of these now, as others have stated very unreliable. First unit stopped receiving signal from Transmitter. Second unit keeps losing USB Connection and has to be reset to get it working again. Plus it keeps giving odd readings like unrealistic temperatures and losing contact with Sensors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Touchscreen Weather Centre I purchased a weather centre and it was easy to set up and gives useful information. The battery claim seems ambitious. Using Maplin alkaline batteries I would suggest 3 months maximum. The anemometer seized up just after 12 months, however I managed to purchase and replace the bearing. Not bad for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working on all levels ,good value for money After a week on test,he new unit is working well ,with the transmitter positioned above the roof line.It also appears to work with new and old soft wear.I moved my old 4 yr transmitter to below the roof line on new locking system I made ,I found the unit started to play up.Now the new weather station transmitter is in a good position, it is just fine.I got the position of the first station right first time and so never had any troubles with old transmitter until moving it ,my house has a reflective foil brick for insulation in the build.This I feel stopped the transmitter signal getting to the base station.That is all sorted now and looking forward to years of good use with my New station.
Date published: 2016-03-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an Oregon Scientific station which gave up working after about three years. The Maplin station lasted about a week! Initially it seems like an ok system. The sensors look ok and are neater than the O.S. senors. The display unit has a built in memory too. On the downside, the display is not very clear. The touchscreen overlay makes the display very murky, with very low contrast. Anyway after a week and during the first properly windy night, the wind speed sensor has ceased solid. Not good, especially as others have seen the same fault. So it's going back.

Date published: 2014-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use and very reliable I purchased this weather station some years back when the controller was a different colour. Nevertheless it is the same beast and has served me very well. I do think the wind speed indicator is a little inaccurate but that also may be to do with were I have the station situated. The rainfall gauge is subject to spider interference, e.g. they build webs in it, but a friend gave me a tip to spray the opening with WD40 and that seems to deter them. I use Culmulus software with the station and upload my results to a webpage. Overall in the years I have had it I have had no problems and I am on the 3 set of batteries in the transmitter which always reestablishes contact on restarting. If your temperature gauge is going to be in direct sun it is worth constructing a shade to shield it.
Date published: 2015-12-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seems to work fine, but have not given it a prolonged test, as yet. The wind direction sensor needs to be situated in a steady, vortex free, air stream - otherwise it spins round excessively. The manual english is somewhat pidgin, but the essential information can be gleaned from it. The computer interface seems OK, but again have not fully evaluated this. Perhaps more testing in 2 or 3 weeks. Quite an impressive piece of kit for the price, but is there any warranty on it? I will eventuallly site the weather station on a boat on Lake Windermere.

I already have one of these, the wind speed and direction sensors both need replacing. However, I'd rather buy a complete new set so long as I can use the existing screen with the new set. One screen upstairs, one downstairs if you get my drift??

Asked by: Wayne480
Just a quick one on this, you can have two screens on at the same time with one system, I have that now and it works flawlessly. I bought two weather station sets so I have spare parts, but I use the spare screen as a second screen with no issues whatsoever. I have had it this way for many years so I am sorry to say whoever replied to this is wrong. The transmitter only sends signals and it does not receive them from the screen unit, so the transmitter can send the data to as many screens as you want, however make sure the second screen works on the 433mhz band if you have a 433mhz transmitter. Unless they have changed anything in the later systems (Protocols etc...) then if they work on 433mhz they should work on all 433mhz screens too. Hope this helps.

I am getting Wind speed and rain data but not outdoor temperature, I have tried resetting the base and ex units, is there a cure for this?

Asked by: caldirun
This sounds like a faulty temp sensor I would advise to replace this part of the unit ( codes for this can be found on the listing)

unable to transfer info from weather centre to computer bottom of weather screen says no usb connection hav tried new usb cable any idears

Asked by: sparky
Typically this would be due to Windows not installing the USB driver correctly. If using a windows 8/10 PC then try installing the device and software with driver signature enforcement disabled you can find out how to do this here http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/

I was sold alkaline batteries for this weather station but the instructions specifically say NOT to use alkalines. Can anyone explain why you should not use alkalines and what batteries should you use?? Thanks.

Asked by: Garg
There should not be any danger in using alkaline batteries, however for the external sensor, lithium batteries would be preferable as they have a wider operating temperature range, meaning they will cope with lower and higher temperatures better than standard alkalines would.
