    Super display, works correctly.

    • Easy installation.
    • Functions perfectly !
    • View data online from anywhere.
    • No batteries included.
    • Additional material required to mount station (Pole)
    • Getting everything online is a bit complicated, but it works.

    My first weather station. After asking some info from a well-known weatherman in the area, I ended up with the Alteco WS 5500. Great choice as it turns out.
    Pleasantly surprised when unboxing because only the windcatcher and windvane still had to be fitted, 10 sec work by tightening a small screw.
    Pay attention if you buy this weather station that extra material is needed to get it working immediately, what I regret is that no batteries are included. If you don't have it at home (For outdoor unit 2 Lithium AA bats) you can't start installing immediately. Also available is a round post of 50mm MAX! outside diameter, otherwise the station cannot be attached to anything. I attached it to a green garden fence post with a diameter of 48mm and it went perfectly, station is 2.6 meters above the ground in a free place. Make sure that the rain tray is exactly North and that the ball of the built-in compass is nicely in the middle.
    Indoor unit powered by the adapter and the backup batts inserted. Pay attention to this because you need 3 small AAA bats !! Then the indoor unit automatically searches for the outdoor unit and that was no problem at all.
    What personal settings do, which by the way are easy and the station works!
    Connecting to WIFI was a piece of cake, just follow what's in the manual.
    Another story is getting your data online on Weather Underground and other servers.
    Here it is really some searching, in the manual it is not really correct and well indicated.
    Maybe post here how I managed it.
    It is best to first create an account on Weather Underground so that you no longer have to do that while installing the app, because that is where the confusion starts with using back and back....
    Created an account on the Weather Underground site via laptop.....or pc...tablet.....and log in. I did it from a laptop.
    Then on the site choose my profile - choose my devices, then click add new device.
    Choose personal weather station, Alecto is not listed, choose OTHER....next...
    Then choose where the address of the unit is requested NOT for address, but manually enter the coordinates next to it, zoom out and in the map until you are where your station is exactly, click in the map at the place where you want to finalize the unit placed and the GPS data will be filled in automatically.
    Enter a name for your device in the next screen and fill in the rest, also pay attention here with the height figures, these can be entered in FEET, so meters x 3.28
    Select hardware back other.
    You will then receive a station ID and a key, which you can enter in the App on your tablet or phone. (From me Iphone)
    Three lines at the top left - Device list, click further on the arrow, then you have Ecowitt, press next and then you have Wunder. Enter your station ID and KEY here and save.
    It takes half an hour before everything is processed on the server and everything appears on your app, so don't panic if it doesn't work immediately.
    In the meantime I have registered my station on different servers and everything works perfectly.
    Hopefully by writing this review I've helped people who are having trouble signing up online.

    • extended observation
    • nice color screen

    I was looking to observe as many weather conditions outside as possible from inside and this has quite succeeded

    More explanation for some things

    Can I view my information via WiFi? You will be asked to enter a Station ID and passwords. Didn't get it.

    Good product more than worth the price
    • Easy to assemble
    • Well built
    • Does more than what I expected
    • Consulting charts after logging in to an online platform.
    • You can't vacuum with it

    Very satisfied with this one. Many parameters, especially after registering with an online platform. The connectivity between sensor(s) and receiver is excellent at all times despite a distance of 10 meters and two floors apart. The only thing that needs to be taken into account is the mast that you still have to provide yourself, but can be found at any do-it-yourself shop for little money.

    Excellent price / quality / functionality
    • Rechargeable sensor
    • Long wireless range
    • Viewing angle screen could be better

    Great device, for online use the manual could be better

    reasonable
    • nice screen
    • easy installation
    • temperatures are correct
    • not readable with home automation
    • app is only for installation. For reading you have to connect it to, for example, Wunderground network
    • weather forecast is wrong

    The design of the outdoor unit is beautiful and the indoor unit has a nice, clear screen. Installation is easy both physically and pairing.
    I use a lot of home automation at home and wanted to read the ws-5500 by those systems in order to further automate, for example awning in/out due to rain/wind. None of this works. The values that the home automation sees do not match at all with what the screen indicates and I could not recognize a "conversion method" in it either. Most of it is good on the screen, but the weather forecast doesn't even see the shelf and misses it completely. Example: Easter weekend was very, very nice and warm weather. The Alecto predicted rain from Saturday. Well, if the next Wednesday the first drops fall while the forecast is max 6 hours ahead, then it is not quite right.

    All in all, nice thing but not to link with home automation.

    Accurate data and nice concept, but...
    • Professional
    • Beautiful design outdoor station
    • Accurate measurement data
    • User friendly
    • Only outdoor data can be viewed on mobile
    • Syncing with Weather Underground not accurate
    • Design indoor unit
    • Indoor unit difficult to read.

    The kit is professionally conceived, easy to install and plug & play.
    I thought at the time of purchase that the data would be synchronized with the iPhone, but this is only partially true: only the outside measurements of the station are visible via www.wunderground.com via an app, but not the indoor temperature or humidity, while this must be technically easy to implement, and so that I cannot, for example, read the indoor temperature of my home from a distance.
    I have verified the measurement data with calibrated devices, and they are very accurate. The design of the outdoor station is extremely attractive, and the materials used are solid with little chance of damage. The indoor unit looks like the ugly duckling in the whole concept, and the LCD screen can only be read if you look perpendicular to it and stand quite close to it - disappointing.

    correct and user-friendly device
    • Easy installation
    • Easy to connect to network
    • Good price
    • clearly legible.
    • weather forecast not correct.

    Correct rainfall reading. measured with multiple devices.
    distance between indoor and outdoor unit more than 50 meters.
    once you know how to read out on smarthphone or tablet a pleasure to use.
