Re: Anemometer Update!

"Let's see if it can beat the 7 months record of fault free operation"

Mmmm, not exactly, it gave up again after 5 days. This is definitely the worst electronic device I've ever owned, what a piece of junk,
wish I never bought it, it's a complete waste of time and money. :evil:

Re: Waterproofing the anemometer

I tried waterproofing it by using hairspary now on the circuit board, is was dripping wet when I opened it, and chalk was on the connections, after being outside in Dutch weather for about 8 months. I had it replaced once before, but in my opinion: the design quality simply isn't good enough for use...

Re: Anemometer Update!

Cleaned the chalked using a small screwdriver, some vinegar, heat and some time. After that I made some modifications using tissues, grease and hairspray.. :lol:
And surprise, surprise, it works again! Let's see if it can beat the 7 months record of fault free operation 8-)

Re: Anemometer Update!

I suspect the center hole, the little nut (in the compartment where the batteries are) is corroded as well, it's about 50% orange-coloured now. So I think it's coming in from below. I've mentioned it before, but this thing is not fit for outside use in moist environments, should only be sold in the ...

Re: Anemometer Update!

I was too curious why these devices break down, so decided to open mine up, since it doesn't work and I'm sick of it anyway. What I already thought is correct, It's not waterproof, dripping wet on the inside, which ruins the electronics. I made a picture: I give up on this module, I'll stick to the ...

Re: Anemometer Update!

Today I took my replacement anemometer from the roof, because it hasn't been providing any data for the last couple of weeks. Exchanging batteries didn't help, no connection, reinstalling didn't help. It's dead and wet again, talking about a Deja Vu... :( Time to start up the NetAtmo CS Circus again...

Re: Anemometer Update!

Had an exchange as well, after a post on Twitter, CS helped a lot faster :) It's on the roof now for 4 days and working ok, firmware is on v.17 now. Range looks slightly better. Let's see if this one can keep it dry. And after working for about 3-4 months the replacement seems to have broken down a...

Re: Help. No data from Wind Gauge.

Mailing to support is useless. I tried Twitter, response was there within a couple of hours,
CS contact followed within a day.
