Every couple of months at work we have a “give away”. Products that have been damaged in shipment or have been returned as non-functional are given away to the employees. Either the employees take them away or the garbage man will. We set up a lottery system to minimize personal conflicts when selecting items. It can be viewed as organized dumpster surfing. We had about three pallets of dings and scratches. One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure. A key item to remember is that there are no returns! If for any reason it does not work for you, you are responsible for disposing of it properly.
I picked up this little item. In the past I thought about getting a weather station but I always decided that my money had better uses elsewhere. I was the last employee to pick and it was still there. I guess the appeal of these devices has come and gone. The package had a nice note with it stating that after three days of trying to get it to work she was returning it. I was game to give it a try. I inserted the required five batteries, three for the station and two for the remote sensor, and both devices worked like a charm! I put the remote sensor down in the barn. Living on a farm we pay attention to the details of the weather forecasts.
