Yes Gordon, I think that's how it's set up. Could be missing the magnet to looking at the pics...will see when I get it. Read below.... lightning detector is a option for new weather station I purchased.
So after doing a little research over the weekend. The Netatmo rain gauge will be repaired and put up for sale again on ebay. To cut a long story short the It looks like to much attention has been payed to cosmetics glossy web pages at the expense of customer service,software bug fixing and even electronic design faults that don't have a acceptable fixes. To add to this some of the addition data that I asumed was collected locally was just relayed from state wide online feeds.
So I scrapped the netatmo idea.
I ordered another weather station wind,rain,temp all in one station (that has a fan inside the unit) it also comes with a indoor wifi hub that connects it to the internet for data logging (without needing a pc running 24/7) data logging is through supplied apple/android apps and it also works with common 3rd party web apps. The WiFi hub can collect data from up to 10 sensors. So if I am still not happy with the outdoor temp readings in the all I one unit (even with the internal fan) I can install another outdoor sensor under the veranda in the shade. All sensors have user calibration option.
Some other wireless add on sensors that they offer that could be handy to connect to the hub.(total of 10 sensors)
Water temp sensor probe
soil temp sensor probe
Pipe temp sensor probe
lightning detector sensor
Will do a small honest review on it when I get it .
