Froggit WH3000 SE (2018) Weather Station Review
Froggit WH3000 SE (2018) Profi radio weather station
– WiFi Internet weather station color display, Wunderground.
Our Best Selling Weather Station by far, the Froggit WH3000 SE has the benefit of not needing a PC to communicate with, whilst still allowing the data to upload direct to Weather Underground using it’s built in WiFi capabilities. All the setup is handled using an Android or Apple IOS app. If you need or prefer the PC connectivity, the next model up, can handle that. See the Froggit page at Amazon for more details and options.
The WH3000 is very easy to setup, but care must be taken when siting the base station as it can loose connection with sensors if there are too many walls in between the two. It may need some trial and error to get the best connectivity. The maximum stated distance between the sensor and base station is 100m, but the workable range is likely to be less.
The actual display screen is clear and bright, with each section being a different colour, making it very pleasing to read. The base station doesn’t come with a dedicated UK plug, it needs an adapter (similar to that need for an electric razor).
Mounting the WH3000 weather station requires attaching it to a suitable pole which isn’t included with the package. A 2” scaffold pole seems to be a popular choice for the pole mounting – the clip allows adjustment between about 1-2”. Once mounted, the instrument head must be aligned with magnetic north. This must be done manually, but can easily be achieved using a compass with minor adjustments.
The remote sensors are solar powered, the inset solar panel recharging the AAA batteries which then take over powering the instruments once it gets dark.
Anyhow, if you are thinking about purchase, take a look at the Froggit WH3000 SE Manual
The Froggit WH3000 SE is highly recommended for the observer needing to upload readings whilst keeping the cost down.
