Technoline Smart Effects WS6830 Radio Controlled LED Weather Station – Radio Station Review

Super useful gadget that helps us get ready in the morning checking the outside temperature without having to go outthe weather forecast part is not so accurate but we use it mainly for the temperature functions.

Technoline radio station review. I looked at a number of different weather clocks before deciding on this one and in the main im happy with it. Plugging it in for the first time it instantly started searching for the atomic clock signal, showed a good 3 bar signal and within a minute or so had correctly updated the time. The temperature displays seem pretty accurate, ive compared the temperature shown with other thermometers and the temperature has been almost exactly the same both internally and externally, certainly within half a degree or so. The weather display is not particularly accurate although to be fair it is trying to forecast the great british weather with only 4 symbols, so has really got no chance. I would add as others have stated the barometer arrows showing rising, falling or steady have never worked, mine has always shown steady, no matter what the pressure change. The external sensor has worked well, mines in shed by the side of the house so is transmitting through a solid exterior wall at a distance of about 10 ftthe displays are bright even on the dimmest of the led brightness setting. I would say it does act as some what of a night light but i have mine at approx bed level and about 3ft away and ive had no problems sleeping with it. Apart from these few minor irritations i would recommend this weather stationupdate. Only real problem has been the external sensor started to lose accuracy ( it’s about 3 degrees out ) handily you can get replacement sensors but bizarrely they seem to only work with certain batches of the main display. This was pointed out by the web shop i tried 2 sensors from. Both sensors would link to the main display but show temperatures in the 50’s no amount of resetting made any difference. Luckily as shop knew this was an issue they supplied refund.

This is a nice piece of kit, does the job well corresponding perfectly with another oregon unit i have. Here are the specifications for the Technoline Smart Effects WS6830 Radio Controlled LED Weather Station:

  • Weather forecast with symbols and tendency
  • Radio control clock with dual alarm and snooze
  • 2 adjustable brightness levels
  • Indoor and outdoor temperature in C or F

This is an excellent weather station and timer.

Good product-very nice at night-5stars.

A very attractive piece of kit for your living room.

I bought this because it has a lit digital display. Most of the stations i had previously seen have the black on grey lcd display that is not easy to see especially at night. The display is very clear and i can keep an eye on the time while watching a dvd or bd. The radio reception is not working but i think that is a function of where i want it in the house rather than a fault with the product itself. However, it may also be that the device is setup to receive the european radio signal from frankfurt rather than the uk one in cumbria. Manually setting the time is so simple i have not found this a major issue though it does irritate me slightly. The eu to uk adaptor is chunky and has an ‘l’-shape that will make it impossible to use with wall sockets and some x-way multisockets.

Radio controlled led weather station. The product looks nice, and unlike the lcd weather stations it can be seen clearly at night and you don’t have to replace batteries in the main unit. Annoyingly there were no batteries supplied for the remote unit. Also the remote unit doesn’t look weatherproof so i’ve made sure its covered. Picked up the correct uk time very quickly. However all the controls are on the back of the unit, so use of the alarm clock is difficult, particularly if you mount it on the wall. The weather indicator works fine. Probably as accurate as the met office. But so far, after a month of operation, the arrow indicating whether the pressure is stable, falling or rising has always said stable. The inside and out side thermometers work fine. However, this is where the third drew back lays. The signal from theoutside sensor seams to travel poorly through exterior brick walls. To get it to remain in constant contact the base unit i had the put it under the pvc step on the back door. On the whole i am very happy with the product, but it only deserves three stars because the short comings may make it unsuitable for other purposes.

Have had this bit of kit for over a year now and it is excellent. Accurate in and outside temperature and good weather forecasting.

Bought to replace an led clock that i could not read on a sunny day. This little weather station truly fills the gap with a bright display that can be dimmed. Only down point was that the outdoor temperature sensor has taken some time to ‘bed-in’, the signal is very weak and cannot be operated more than 10-15m away – less if the signal has to pass through brick which is a pain. Otherwise clock found the time signal within 1-2 minutes. Delivery was outstanding – ordered 15:20 on fri with super saver free delivery, it arrived 10:00 the next morning.

    This was a gift for my husband so the review comes from him. He says it works perfectly and is easy to read but he would have liked the temperature to show part degrees – its just whole numbers but that’s not a huge problem. He likes the look of it and its easy to read.
