Loving this very functional app and my Tempest at home weather station. It seems very accurate and yet so much smaller and compact than any other station I've owned with out all of the separate moving parts sticking out everywhere. If I had a con, it would be in the app and more of a suggestion 🤔 for the programmers. Any percentage numeral should appear about half size of the whole numbers for those without perfect eyesight. The period is somewhat invisible.

Just ok... Works pretty reliably, but has so irritating things and lacks a radar option. The unit itself is another matter, but we'll stick to the app here You cannot add another, specific station to your city list if your trying to track a friend's station. Also, the monthly totals in history don't give you average High and Low temperatures only the hottest and coolest temp of the month. Very odd.

I've had my unit for a week now and it is performing well. The wind measurements seems to be off on speed but I don't have my Sky unit in the best location. I was disappointed that the weather station does not directly integrate into Smartthings, but I am able to get around it by using IFTTT. Not ideal as IFTTT is not always quick to respond but it is working. The station also has the ability to link to Weather Underground but at this time, I'm only seeing temp and wind, no humidity, rain, or pressure. I don't know if this takes time to build up a log or these values are not being uploaded. Right now, I'm happy with my purchase and only time will tell how robust the devices are and what features are added to the software. I hope there is continued development going on to make this more like the well established weather stations. This is a very unique product and has great potential. As for the app specifically, it is very informative and pleasing to view. I would like to see the logging easier to view. Right now you only see a rather small window of data. Making the time frame larger makes seeing the detail far less usable. All in all, the app is ptetty good.
