Are these any good? I've been looking for a fairly simple one that will connect to the internet so I can see the data remotely without paying a large fortune to Davis for a Vantage Vue and all the extras required for connectivity.

Bresser don't have many good reviews on Amazon.

I cant imagine it being very good.. If an Asian couple (who are directors in half a dozen other businesses from the same address) can import them from China, store stock, pack and ship them out from their home/office in Romford at that price and still make a worthwhile profit, just how cheap must the components and the manufacturing labour be? :scratchhead:

My folks have a basic Yoshika one off Amazon just to know the temp outside, maybe £35 odd, cant remember.
Cant fault it, good clear screen, never missed a beat since I bought it for them.
Had 2 Oregon Scientific ones before that which both of them the out side sensor died.
No idea of connecting to the internet, dont think this one would do that.
I have a Davis Vantage Pro 2 as Im bit geeky about weather and its cost a lot just to keep going, always something broke on it.

All working properly now. It seems to be fairly accurate so far & I have a manual gauge next to it as a guide. Time will tell how long it lasts.

@Jo28 - this would be within your budget

The 9387 I linked above via Amazon
Looks to be exactly the same weather station as my Bresser. Only difference is it costs more.
I had difficulty connecting to the Internet but that was because I had lost the router password and was given the wrong one by my provider. Now working perfectly.
I use weathercloud which I was told is much more stable than Wunderground. very pleased with it for the price.

I've just ordered an Ecowitt, modular, you can also have ground moisture sensors and soon temperature when released. Not that expensive. Connects to wifi and then access from mobile phone.

Claas joins the autonomous tractor club

Written by Justin Roberts

Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.

The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.

AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.

Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
