    Lidl / Auriol weather station manual 16th Jul 11 at 12:55 PM
    Hi

    I wonder if anyone could help me.

    I've just bought an Auriol radio-controlled weather station from Lidl in their Non Food Sale, but it hasnt got its user manual.

    I'd prefer not to return it and I was wondering if anyone has this already and could email to me.

    I've looked in google but cannot find it.

    Thanks for reading.

    Is it the one with an outdoor sensor and an indoor receiver, with a little frog decal on it for the forecast?

    I discovered this morning that our remote sensor has disappeared. I can't imagine why anyone would take it, we live in the country. Nor is it the sort of thing a squirrel would take (is it?)

    Anyway, the question is where to get a replacement. I've looked and not found one yet, only the complete ensemble.

    Hi. I bought this yesterday and am slightly confused by the instructions.

    It states that the outside sensor is to be kept away from water. Now given the wonderful british climate how are the rest of you achieving this? At present i have slipped mine into a ziplock bag until I can figure out where to put it, but this will affect the humidity reading so I don't think that is much of a long term solution.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Austin44- you said the one you were given "is excellent". I have just bought one (Model No. Z31130 - is that the same as yours?) and, having finally got it to recognise the sensor, it is not giving me any outdoor temp or humidity - PLUS it is forecasting rain when we are in the middle of 'clear skies and heatwave' type weather! In the instructions it says that if the weather station differs from local weather reports, you should go by the local reports......I am left wondering what is the point of having the weather station?! Can you help?

    Don't forget the weather forceast on ALL these types of weather stations works simply on the pressure trend over time and use it to predict the weather conditions - not now but arriving in the next few hours.

    So your machine must be running and recording pressure for some while before the forecast has a chance of being correct.

    Remember the old brass barometers with STORMY and FAIR on them for rising and falling pressure. Just an electronic version.

    My model is Z29962
    Anyone got a link to customer support for this model?

    Bought one of these today however can't seem to get the receiver to find the transmitter, it just says --C. Tried all channels and the mode where it scans all channels in turn.

    The transmitter channel switch and reset hole doesn't line up with the actual switch and reset button on the Circuit board (German Engineering eh ? :-)), so had to remove the screws to find the channel it was set to. (Switch popped into position when reassembled)

    Also noticed there is no 'O' seal to keep the inside dry, so even if it did work, I can't imagine it lasting beyond its first british winter. I'm tempted to put silicone around the join (If I get it working) otherwise it'll go back to Lidl.

    You can download manuals from Lidls website (not allowed to post a link, but it's an option on their product menu)

    external sensor problem?
    I bought mentioned aobve weather station in LIDL a week ago. At first I enjoyed it very much. But on evenings I noticed that readings from external sensor stops on circa 24 C. I placed the station outside (side by side with external sensor) and it measures "inside" temperature correctly (which was far below 24 C) while "external" readings were constant. On the morning it appears that it is again working correctly. It seemed to be associated with the time of the day (during the day I have no time to constantly watch the station) but I think that is unlikely. Also the LED indicator on external sensor flashes red with very low frequency - no matter the readings are good or not (in the manual we read that indicator flashes after switch on and lids during reset, no repeated flashes during operation described). The situation repeats.
    I have also tried below to solve the problem but without improvement:
    • Read the attached manual - in troubleshooting case not described (I have tried to reset the external sensor, but without success - although it resets - the red indicator lids)
    • Replaced the batteries with new ones
    • Tried to change the frequency channel - it switch to another, read signal but stops readings.
    • Tested to switch off the external sensor (removed batteries) - the base station indicates that los signal - no aerial icon and last readings flashes - but it not appears when readings are "frozen".
    Maybe someone encountered similar problems with weather station and can help me. It is a little frustrating that it is working wrong. I know the station was not expensive but it looks solid and reliable. The malfunction is not constant. Please help me before I will smash the station along with the external sensor from 9th floor. Best regards,

    At 2am my dog went crazy, thinking it was a fox, I let her out but I've subsequently found that my outdoor sensor is gone and so is my wireless bell push. Perhaps it wasn't a squirrel that took yours Keith but a gadget mad fox!
