The Benefits Of Using Wireless Rain Gauge

The wireless rain gauge is just another kind of rain gauge that provides the same benefits. But if you want a device that gives less fuss, the wireless type gives you a notched up version of the conventional rain gauge. As what the name asks for it, it functions without the wires. Unlike the conventional rain gauges, the wireless rain gauge lets you enjoy the readings that it collects while inside your home or office. This is done with the help of the digital display, which provides the actual readings of the rain fall amount collected from the outside.

The wireless rain gauge is perfect for individuals who do not want the hassles of going out to collect weather data, specifically the amount of rain fall. It lets the user collect the data without the hassles of the outdoors. But if you don’t mind going out in the sun or in the rain, a conventional rain gauge would suffice.

There are two parts comprising the wireless rain gauge:

a.) The actual gauge ? this is the device you mount outside and it does the collection of the rain water fall. The device can be mounted on any area of your outdoors, whether at the backyard, on a pole, on your deck, and any other fixtures you have.

b.) The wireless receiver ? this is your digital display put indoors. It is also called the weather station, and which that provides all the collected data by the actual gauge outside and lets you read it in the comfort of your home or office. The display can either be mounted hanging on the wall or can be on a free standing or the removable type.

Depending on the type of wireless rain gauge you have, its weather station may not only provide the amount of rainfall at a certain period of time. It can also collect other important and useful information like indoor temperature, outdoors temperature, and a lot other weather-concerned information. The accumulation of rainfall data can be done over a different set of time period such as hourly, daily, weekly, and even annually.


It depends on the kind of wireless rain gauge you install, but most of them available in the market provides a range of between 100-330 feet. So, you can still enjoy the readings even if you have a large lawn background.


Most wireless rain gauges are also powered via solar, so basically, there is no need to use for any battery. However, like any other good wireless rain gauge, your device should come with spare batteries in case backup is needed.

Emptying rain water

This wireless device gives you lesser hassle after it accumulated the rain water. After the rain fall stops and with the help of the collection unit the rain gauge comes with, it will empty itself out with water that there is no more need for you to go outside to physically do the emptying task. Isn’t it way convenient than the other conventional rain gauge types you earlier used?

The accuracy of a wireless rain gauge can usually be tested by comparing its results over the findings of any local weather station in your location. You can also have fun comparing your findings with your friends and relatives. In many cases, you will be surprised how a wireless rain gauge can be accurate just like at the weather station.
