Ratings and Reviews
Great Hardware, App could use some enhancements.
The Weather Flow Air and Sky hardware are great innovations. I really like the fact that they are capable of providing a full spectrum of Weather data; without the need for bulky, unsightly hardware. The ease of setup and use are truly appreciated, along with the fact that (unlike Competitors) there is no annual subscription fee to access the data remotely.
The app is fairly good; but there is room for improvement. I would like to have the ability to create custom graphs; with multiple data point overlays. (Allow the ability to simultaneously view precipitation, wind speed, temperature, etc. on a single graph; using different colors to distinguish between each data point). The one other major feature that I would like to see is the ability to see average or cumulative data over a custom selection of Date/Time. (Physical Numbers, not Graphs). For example, how much rain was detected between Time X and Time Y. While the graph displays accumulations by day, it would be nice to be able to determine the total from a multi-day storm, or how much was recorded for an entire month. For Temperatures, it would be nice to determine the average High, Low and Overall Average temperature over a selected range of dates. Saving major data statistics (Temp., Precipitation, Humidity ...) on iOS device, for historical comparison would be extremely useful for evaluating how Electrical and Water usage may have been impacted by the weather.

Hi, thanks for your great feedback. The app is purposely designed to be as simple as possible without too many bells and whistles. There are so many ways users can utilize and interact with their weather data. One example, with IFTTT services you can write all your data to a google sheet and create an infinite number of custom graphs, charts, summaries, etc. Users also have the ability to access data through our Smart Weather API or UDP Broadcast service. There are also many integrations with 3rd party services and more to come! Thanks for your support. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us for assistance!

No one else come close to this...
I have been super stoked with my new WeatherFlow Smart Weather Station... and particularly the lightening sensing and notifications. We live where storms can fire up rapidly coming of the mountains, and can have little warning of severe weather. We have kids out riding bikes and playing on the lake, and the lightening alerts give us timely heads-up on developing activity so we can make sure everyone is safe. I have seen the first strike from a developing storm 5 miles away, and have had the alert before I hear the thunder. Amazing!

Thanks for your amazing review! We're glad you're enjoying the lightning alerts and using them to keep your family safe. The alert notifications are often quicker than the speed of sound from the strike itself! Very cool to experience in real time.
Worth the wait
This is an elegant product: no moving parts, accurate, fast, very easy to set up. The range from the central hub to the sensors is as good as claimed and does not appear to be affected by rain. This cost a fraction of the high-end Davis weather station it replaced, but it appears to be at least as well made. It uploads to the internet automatically, by itself. Excellent read-out.
This works very well!
