Add a lightning detector to your Ambient Weather WS-2000 and WS-5000 weather stations.

The lightning sensor detects strilkes, and transmits this information once per 79 seconds to the display console and our cloud service, AmbientWeather.net.

Personal lightning detectors work by detecting the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) emitted by a lightning strike. By measuring the strength of the detected EMP, the device can then estimate how far away the detected strike was.

Have you ever heard the crackling of a lightning strike on your AM radio? A lightning strike has a distinct waveform that can be processed and analyzed by detector hardware and software.

Through the application of electronics and software, personal lightning detectors identify storm activity within 25 miles (40 km) of your location.

Limitations:

Do not make important life-threatening decisions based on this lightning detector. We do not recommend this device for safety, both personal and public.

Personal lightning detectors cannot measure the exact location of a lightning strike. Lightning detectors are also sensitive to false alarms. Despite these limitations, personal lightning detectors continue to increase in popularity among individuals and professionals.

Although personal lightning detectors function well with respect to their ability to detect nearby lightning, they are quite basic in functionality when compared to professional lightning detectors.

For example, they cannot tell where a lightning strike was located, or from which direction the lightning is approaching, only that lightning is in the area. Also, since a personal lightning detector is triggered by EMPs, interference from other EMP-emitting devices (such as electronic equipment, appliances, fluorescent lights and even car engines) can sometimes result in either false alarms or missed strikes.

This interference often has the additional effect of preventing personal lightning detectors from functioning properly while indoors or near outdoor electronic equipment. The lighitng detector includes three sensitibity settings.
