OVERVIEW

The state-of-the-art La Crosse Technology WS-2811 Professional Wireless Weather Center features La Crosse's new state-of-the-art wireless "Instant Transmission" technology, featuring temperature and humidity data updates every 13 seconds, wind data every 17 seconds, and rain data every 19 seconds.

The La Crosse WS-2811 can monitor a number of weather variables including indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction, 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.

La Crosse's Heavy Weather Pro software allows you to use a PC to monitor and record weather data received from the WS-2811 via a proprietary USB device that's included with the weather station. You can monitor and record a variety of data collected by the various weather station sensors. You can also review weather history data, and analyze trends and tendencies over time using the software's charts and graphing features.

The WS-2811 comes complete with wireless indoor console, temperature and humidity sensor, rain gauge, and solar-powered anemometer.

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.

it is my first weather station that I got for a Christmas gift and it is so cool to be able to see the different features on the unit.. it was very easy to set up ... I put it in one spot and wasn't getting good results so I relocated to another spot and reprogramed the unit and it was just as easy as set up...

The setup of this unit was easy and straightforward. I caution you to read the install instructions and the FAQ completely before beginning as there are important recommendations in there that if heeded will eliminate having to move or reinstall sensors later. Once installed its a breeze to learn the operation. It works perfectly so far.

This weather station has everything. We enjoy the fact that it has so much comprehensive information. Our only quibble, and it's a small one, is that it has no back light for nighttime.
