  1. Good experience

    Posted by Graeme on 27th Mar 2018

    Prompt delivery. Easy to set up. Very happy with process and the product. Have since bought another as a present.

  2. Desktop Wireless Station

    Posted by JohnB on 2nd Feb 2018

    The unit was delivered promptly (two days) and this afternoon I set it up.
    With clear, easy to follow instructions, that was a breeze and it is now displaying the information that has become quite important over the hot summer months. My old fashioned and less accurate thermometer has now been retired! I'm a very happy purchaser.

  3. Great

    Great little unit, has everything I wanted, would recommend.

  4. Excellent Product

    Posted by Terry Coltman on 25th May 2017

    Easy to read and understand. I particularly like the weather trend indicator and pressure history. An excellent product that I have no hesitation in recommending. Arrived promptly.

    I would recommend this product, it is value for money.
    Thanks Sue

  6. Fantastic desktop weather station

    Posted by Nafa on 20th Apr 2017

    I received this weather station as a birthday present and keep it on the counter in the kitchen for easy viewing. It has an excellent clear display with a very nice backlight. We have a number of thermometers around the place and it seems to be quite accurate. A friend of mine has a handheld humidity meter that he brought over one day and it matched up well with that too.

    Having the barometric pressure graph is a nice addition, most desktop stations like these only have the forecast function but being able to see the pressure changes over the last 24 hours allows you to make your own call which I like. It's fair to say that I'm no better than the built in forecast which seems to get it right more times than not which is pretty amazing for such an inexpensive device.

    Another thing I like is that the outdoor sensor has a readout on it which is handy when you're outside so you don't have to go in to the console to see the temperature and humidity. It comes with screws and I attached ours under one of the eaves of our house with the screws included with no problems.

    The min/max function is quite good and I have used that a few times to see what sort of lows we've had overnight. I don't really have a use for the weather alarms but again that's great functionality for the price I think. So I'd highly recommend the Aercus WS1173 if you're looking for a desktop station.

  7. Excellent little weather station

    Posted by TJassinghe on 11th Apr 2017

    The wireless feature is a big advantage over my previous unit that it replaced. I was able to locate the sending unit out of direct sunlight and get an accurate outdoor temperature reading. I am impressed by its accuracy and love the barometric trend and forecast.

  8. Basics done well

    Posted by A Hunt on 16th Mar 2017

    Simple device presenting basics well . Inside and outside temperatures , humidity , plus changing barometric pressure .
    Nice device , easy to set up , although make sure you look closely at the polarity of the batteries before inserting ,which you will need a good light to see. , ,!!!
    Have not set the time or date yet ,so,cannot comment on the instruction book!

  9. Great weather station

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Nov 2016

    This weather station was purchased to replace a defunct unit. It arrived promptly and was very easy to set up. It has proven to give useful results after a period gathering pressure data. The unit is easy to read.

  10. Useful wireless weather station

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jul 2016

    This product is working very well. It is easy to read from a distance and I have no reason to believe the readings are anything other than spot on.

    The only reason why I have not given this a 5 (and the product itself does deserve it) is because some of the instructions are not the easiest to follow. I have been able to set it but I am sure it can do other things that I haven't discovered yet.

    However, it does exactly what I want. It tells me what the current temperature is inside and outside the house, what the humidity is and a good idea of what the weather will be doing.
