Interesting.

I wonder how the mounting options are.

And it will be available in the 15. week.

No word in the US I was told Q2 by a rep that it would be up for sale, both parts the rain and anemometer.

what does measuring tolerance 1mm / h mean?

not clear if it measures 0.2mm or just 1mm

I suppose it will measure in 0.1mm steps from 0,2mm to 900mm per hour.
And there is a possibility, that it is 1mm off in 60 minutes.

So if it rains heavily for an hour and it says 456mm. It is actually something between 455 and 457mm.
If it only rains a little bit, I'm sure readings like 0.4mm will be exact.

Lots of rain in short time can cause inaccuracy is what I'm trying to say :-)

You make a good point. From the ordering page, it looks like a table top installation .

I think I read somewhere you attach it to whatever with a single screw.

how heavy is this, since its a table top sensor. The winds at my house regularly hit 40mph during storm season and even higher. Living on a lake produces some massive winds at times, will this thing be carried off?

Not if it's screwed down like I mentioned above.

Can we please have some screenshots to see how the rain sensor's data is displayed in the app.
