The La Crosse Technology WS-7014CH-IT Wireless Weather Station is an all-in-0ne unit, giving you humidity and temperature for indoor and a remote location. Its date and time are radio-controlled and receives signals from the U.S. atomic clock. The remote sensor is capable of sending temperature information a distance of 330 feet maximum, give or take a few feet based on given obstructions. The accuracy of its weather forecasts, given for up to 12-20 hours in the future, is estimated at 75%, as it makes the forecasts according to air pressure. The station measures 3.5 x 5.5 x 1.25 inches, and the station as well as the remote sensor run on two AA batteries each.
La Crosse Technology WS-7014CH-IT Wireless Weather Station Review:
The over two hundred customers who reviewed this weather station gave it an average rating of 3.8 stars, with over one hundred of them giving it a perfect 5.0-star rating. The users liked how setup was very easy and the station was found to work great. One user commended its having an atomic clock feature, as he felt that it kept him from having time keeping drift. He also appreciated the memory function that stored the highest and lowest temperatures, as he was a person who liked to know how cold or hot it got during the night. Many reviewers were also extremely happy with the value they got for such an affordable price. After all, it seemed to have all the basic features that the average household could want or need. One buyer got this station for friends and the recipients were very happy with it.
One buyer who gave the weather station 2.0-stars had nothing bad to say about the product but was actually annoyed at having been misled by the seller into buying a wireless sensor, as he thought none came with the display unit. He wound up having two wireless sensors, although he did find a way to make use of he extra remote unit. Some users also commented that the forecast feature sometimes was not that accurate, but it was not considered that big a deal, as one user who brought that up still gave it a 4.0-star rating. One reviewer who gave it a 1.0-star rating got a unit that worked well at first but died within one year’s use, while another reviewer who gave it 2.0-stars complained about not being able to add a third remote sensor despite following the directions in the manual.
Based on these comments, we would recommend this weather station for average household use, as it is proven to be helpful in terms of giving data like temperature and humidity. Plus, you get an atomic clock in the deal; just be sure to use it according to recommendations in order to make sure you get a good signal, both for the atomic clock as well as for its remote sensors. For the price, this is definitely a great buy.
