The La Crosse Technology WS-1612 professional wireless weather station features La Crosse's new state-of-the-art wireless "Instant Transmission" technology, providing weather measurement updates every 4.5 seconds (6.5 seconds for rain)!

The WS-1612 weather station is capable of monitoring a number of weather variables including wind speed and direction, rainfall, outdoor temperature and humidity, and barometric pressure. The weather center also includes time and date display, weather forecast icons, and user-selectable alarm settings for a number of different weather conditions.

Note: This product DOES NOT measure indoor temperature or humidity.

The WS-1612 comes complete with wireless indoor console, temperature/humidity sensor, rain gauge, and anemometer. With this La Crosse weather station, the outdoor sensors are all wired together. To clarify, there are no wires coming to the inside display however the three outside sensor devices are all connected to each other, as shown in the picture above.

Note: We do carry a magnetic compass to help you orient your anemometer to true north. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

Hi its a good weather station for its price compare to other stations that cost way more was easy to set up the sensor locations is important for accuracy and was time consuming to setup but otherwise its a good weather station.

5 stars Works great!
A little complicated to work but once you understand it, it works very well. Zip ties included in the kit were not very good quality. But overall a very nice weather station.

5 stars Love my new Weather Station!
We got the Professional Weather Station for Christmas. Instalation was easy. The hardest thing was running the wires under my deck as I had to crawl under there. My wife and I usually have trouble with projects like this, but this was surprisingly easy to put together. It is hard to mess it up! We enjoy seeing the wind gauge spinning and are learning how little wind it takes to have an effect on the wind chill. Great product!

2 stars A good all round weather station
This is a good weather station, but I had to return it. I couldn't position the wind attachment in a place where it could be accurate. When you purchase be sure and check the positioning requirements before you buy it. The detailed manual is on-line.

5 stars Good product
I have used this weather station for about two weeks and it working up to expectations. There have been no problems so far. I expected a written users manual which was. Not provided.

4 stars Wind meter
As I put the weather station up, the only thing I can foresee problems with is the wind meter. The arms that hold the cups on are so fragile that I anticipate them breaking.
