80 year old dad loves to be able to see all the weather conditions in one location. He even has fun looking on his phone (via bluetooth)
With all the recent rainfall we’ve been having this rain gauge has been as accurate as my traditional rain catcher but I don’t have to empty out this one.
This works great! Easy to connect and install. Can’t wait to use it next summer. Looks like it will work great once it’s going on a daily basis. Will update post if any issues arise.
I love this. These are add-on parts of a total irrigation package. This helps you better control your watering to prevent overwatering The added bonus is it also lets you monitor light levels to get a better idea of whether your garden or yard is getting too much sun, not enough, or just the right amount of light. To get a total idea of what is going on you will probably require several of these.
BALDR Garden Sprinkler Watering Timer, Up to 3 Programmable Plans, Rain Delay Sensor, Smart Irrigation Timer for Garden Watering, Protected LCD Screen can really do a lot for under $30! Our old home had an irrigation system, so I was spoiled. Now, we rely on hoses for watering. This really makes it easy. There are so many ways to customize what you are doing, and the rain sensor is great. We can easily go away and feel comfortable knowing that things will get watered. Great value!
Since I landscaped last year I have been looking at timers like this but just didn't get around to it until now. Thought I would give this one a try. It took me awhile before writing a review because I needed time to see if it was going to do what it is supposed to do. Works as described. I set it up to water for about 1 minute every day, then I programmed it to water every 3 days, then increased to 7 days. Worked fine. I like the programs, you can set 3 different programs each with different times and days, but you don’t select days of the week, you select how many days until the next time you want it to water, think of it as how many days delay between watering with a max of 15 days. Because you can program 3 different routines, there are plenty of ways you can configure it. There is also a manual override. I like the fact that the battery compartment has a good seal, so it is totally waterproof. I put some water on the contacts for the rain sensor, and it shut off. You can turn off the rain sensor function if you want.
Works as it should, you will be happy with this unit, I am.
Yes, this timer lacks some features that would be great to have. But this little thing does a great job at the basics, especially for the price. I’ve been really happy with it so far, have been using about two months now. I’ve used a two way splitter to attach two hoses and this has helped me keep the backyard green all summer. Great buy so far!
Easy to use app and no problems setting it up. I like the solar panel, haven't come across this before. Usually, these outside watering things use batteries or need to be recharged every few days to a week so the solar panel is a real game changer. Now all I need to worry about is keeping the big water bin filled. Very nice.
I use it to time my morning cold showers. 😊
Did I do something wrong. It doesn’t connect to my Baldr desk unit?
I have the Baldr indoor/outdoor weather station, I have had it for years, works perfectly but this review is about the outdoor sensor. I live in Texas, a bad storm rolled through one night, the next morning my weather station was not showing outdoor temp. I went to investigate, the sensor was on my patio, with the sensor, the cover and the batteries all separated in a puddle of water. Easy fix, went to the Baldr site & ordered a new outdoor sensor. BUT I decided to play with the wet one, I used a hair dryer on it, and then I buried it in rice for a day, finally put the batteries back in it, set it next to its weather station and walla! A couple hours later it started to work again. The new one is still in it's box as a backup. BTW, this was a year ago since this happened. I would say this is a quality product!
It is great cannot set date and year .
Love the weather station love love love
I’m finding it hard to set alarm
BALDR Alarm clock is everything it advertised and more . It is super bright and all the info is well displayed..
