Friday, August 15th, 2014

This is my second Ambient Weather station solution – the ws-1090 console still works but the remote sensors faded away after ~2 years… The web page for the Ambient Weather WS-1000 personal weather station (PWS) lists quite a number of features (see below.)  I either mis-read the information OR based on a lack of adequate Continue reading →
