About this product


Product overview

• Wireless weather station allows you to check the temperature and humidity both indoors and outdoors
• Records a temperature range of -5°C to 50°C indoors and -20°C to 60°C outdoors so you can dress appropriately for the weather
• Weather forecast function allows you to see a day in advance
• Three splash proof sensors for indoor and outdoor use
• Requires eight AAA batteries and one AA battery

What data can I view with this weather station?
This weather station will show you the temperature and humidity reading of its location, and uses the included sensors to give you the same information for their position. The RAR501 also forecasts the weather within a 30-50km radius for the next 12 to 24 hours.

Why would I need three extra sensors?
The extra sensors can be place indoors or outdoors allowing you to view the readings from a particular position, for example, a children’s bedroom, a cellar or a garage.

What makes this different from other weather stations?
This weather station also features a mould alert function, which will flash on screen when the humidity reaches a level of 60% or more. This allows you to take preventive measures to reduce the risk of mould affecting your health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of tech. This was a gift from my daughter a few weeks ago. Once set up it has proven reliable and quite accurate. The outdoor sensor must be located carefully but once installed in a suitably sheltered position it gives an accurate reading. I can now monitor humidity in three rooms prompting me to buy a de-humidifier. I now have a healthy home.

Asked by: Snapper Jack
I contacted Oregon Scientific with the same question and received this reply: 'Thank you for contacting Oregon Scientific Customer Support. Good morning sir. All though it is not mentioned in the manual the unit itself has a built in pressure sensor. The unit will then calculate the upcoming weather forecast using the temperature and humidity information from the sensor/s as well.
