The WS-1173A adds sunrise, sunset, and moonphase to our most popular desktop weather center.
The indoor console displays barometric pressure, temperature and humidity levels indoors and outside, and shows daily weather forecasts that help you dress for the weather. The main display receives temperature and humidity data from the included wireless remote sensor.
The wireless sensor installs just about anywhere (up to 100 feet away) to report on conditions in the greenhouse, garage, wine cellar or baby’s room, places where proper temperature and humidity levels are crucial. The weather station’s main console displays a wide range of information in an easy-to-read format on a large LCD. The attractively thin console can be placed on a desktop or mounted to a wall.
The unit monitors indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, outdoor dew point, as well as barometric pressure (both sea-level and measured), and features a pressure history chart to track trends (barograph). The handy forecast icons let you know at a glance if it’s going to be rainy, cloudy, or sunny based on barometric pressure trends.
Sunrise and sunset are displayed as a function of your location (longitude and latitude), as well as moonphase based on the calendar date.
Equipped with an atomic clock, time is set automatically via radio and in synch with the U.S. atomic clock for utmost accuracy. The clock also features an alarm with snooze and temporary back light for nighttime viewing.
