Super easy to set up and use

published

Purchased one of these from Bunnings. Had absolutely no trouble getting it all going. A few tips.

1) Install batteries in outside sensor before powering on the main unit and make sure both the outdoor sensor and main unit are on the same channel.

2) Use good quality batteries like Energizer for better results all round and eliminates any short battery life issues

3) It takes max 3 minutes for the main unit to pick up from the outside sensor. No problems with it at all.

Purchased in September 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse.

Will not connect to external sensor

published

Tried all things to get the system to connect to external sensor. Clearly this is a common problem. As here is no one to ring for trouble shooting I have to return for refund

Love it!.. so far...

published

So far... had connection issues with the outdoor sensor initially, but once on the same channel, pressed and held down the channel button, and it connected immediately!! I got it to see the humidity levels for my indoor plants, now my humidifier isn't on all the time, I can just open the doors and windows!

Spot On

published

I really can't understand what the negative reviews are about. I've got a few of these I use in my aquaponics setup and they never fail. Straight out of the box it works, simple instructions - setup is so easy outside batteries last over 12 months and with a little twerking can monitor water temperature. I have been using them for about 3 years at $20 a set - can't fault it.

Simple and Effective.

published

I purchased this unit pretty happy with it. Only issue I have is that I can't get the comfort level display to work. II purchased it to measure temperature and humidity for my indoors plants. It worked fine the first day but stopped after it. .

Simple but effective

published

It works very well! Took a little while to connect at first, had to bring the unit right next to the display screen, but once it connected it's been fine, hasn't dropped out once. It gives accurate temperature and humidity readings, the weather readings are sometimes inaccurate (it'll say sunny when it's raining for example) but other than that it's been brilliant, very reliable and excellent value for money so far (had it for two weeks).

Doesn't connect to outside sensor

published

I wish I'd checked reviews before buying this as a Christmas gift! It appeared to work fine as we set it up, the screen looks great and the manual was straightforward. However, no matter what we did, the sensor would not connect to the base station. I was going to get a replacement, but it being such a common issue, there doesn't seem to be any point.

Great product for the price

published

Not sure what the poor ratings are all about. This is an awesome unit. Person who said the outside unit melted, well obviously it's not meant to go in the sun.
Screen is EASY to read , batteries are EASY to install, temperature IS accurate ( it updates once per minute and can take a couple of minutes to adjust )
Going back for another one soon, it has 3 channels so you can monitor 3 sensors from one display..
GREAT VALUE PRODUCT !

Brilliant!

published

I've had one sitting on my desk for over a year now and cannot fault it! The outside sender sits on my veranda in a fairly open environment but out of the direct weather and it works brilliantly.

At $18 it certainly wont break the bank so have just purchased another one this morning!

Both units are working fine and alongside each other. Have a sender on the veranda and one in the workshop under the house. I can read both from either main unit which are located in my computer room and lounge room. Brilliant!!

Inside unit works but not the outside unit

published

This unit was bought from Bunnings. The outside unit cover around the led display melted. Temp and humidity on the outside unit is not the same as the inside unit even when put side by side. You have to get close to the unit to read it. Spend your money on something else.

Inconsistent & very flimsy

published

Open the back of sensor to put the battery, the clip broke off so easily.. its hold by clips so small it would hardly be any bigger then bee's dik.
Sensors, when places next to each other, difference between 0.8-1.4C.
When placed at a distance of 2 meters, cant read the screen. 1. it doesn't have a back light, 2. the glare is so much that you could only see 88:88. changing location / angle doesn't seem to help either.

Overall poor product.

Unit works fine ,but ???

published

Yea just brought this product from Bunnings, got the weather station to work fine ,the outside unit is 25 meters from the unit ,and it is working,but failing to respond to the weather station screen.

Inaccurate is an understatement!

published

From first use the temperature and humidity on the transmitter have been wrong. It's not even off a constant amount which I could account for, the readings are all over the place, sometimes higher than the base station, sometimes lower.

Disappointed

published

It does not respond to instructions. Has shadow on screen which shows through the top screen. Is difficult to take the back off the remote to put batteries in. Just can't get it to work.

inaccurate reading on wireless sensor just after 4 months, Bunnings should change supplier

published

Bunnings should source out another supplier for this, inaccurate reading on wireless sensor just after 4 months

I have put indoor and outdoor unit side by side, indoor showed 25oC (about right), whereas outdoor sensor showed 38oC(totally wrong)
I have had another dewart brand one bought from BigW, after 4 years, it is still in working order.

Lasted 3 months

published

This was a pretty good unit for 3 months and then we started cooling off in the mornings and the outside sender stopped transmitting. The information was still reading on it's front panel but just not sending it to the indoor unit. Battery's are fine, changed them anyway with Duracell's but nothing.
Not expensive I suppose at $18.97 but you would expect to get a year or two out of it, I have no doubt Bunnings will refund without question......again.

You probably have the incorrect year set. Are you you still having problems?

It does not say where I can put the outdoor sensor.

in the shade somewhere fairly close. I have mine about 2 meters away hanging so it doesn't get the heat off of what I have mounted it on
