Digital Rain Gauge with Wireless Self-Emptying Rain Collector 00899
Product Review (submitted on April 12, 2012):
I have had this wireless rain gauge for several years now and it has never failed me. I set the collector/transmitter outside on a picnic table on the deck and the receiver on a windowsill in a direct line to each other That is the rule with just about any remote control device. They have to be able to "see" each other. Also, you have to keep the batteries fresh for it to work properly, but again, that is true for many battery-powered devices. I keep the alarm set to "on" and it has never failed to beep after a measurable amount of rain has fallen. I check the battery indicator every so often to see if the batteries need to be changed. I like gadgets -- I also have a wireless thermometer outside the house and you have to watch the batteries on that as well -- and this rain gauge is one of my favorites.
