x16wda:
As far as gadgets go, you can do a lot worse than a "weather station".

How good is the range on the remote sensor?  That's been a weak spot on the units I have tried.  (Longevity is another weak spot, probably because I have always gone with the cheaper units.)

mouser:
They say it has a 300ft range.
The previous brand I had was a colossal pain to get and keep the base and sensor "synchronized"; this one seems care free.

Really? Had they been shown to be mentally deficient?    :tellme:
Are these people also allowed to vote and drive cars?

It's actually worse than 4wd has described.

A couple weeks ago I had to get some photocopies certified as originals, which meant a trip to the local police station to have that done. Browsing around the counter, I saw a laminated sheet of "prohibited/illegal weapons". And yep - you guessed it... laser pointers are "weapons".  :huh:

I suppose the millions of hollowed out carcasses of crashed airplanes serve as testament to the dangers of laser pointers. :P

Triggertrap Mobile

For about the price of a simple remote shutter + intervalometer, 30$, it makes for a far more flexible and powerful gadget.
There's a dongle that connect to the headphones out jack of a smartphone (or any device that can output audio), and then a collection of adapter cables for nearly any photocam around.
Features includes: remote shutter, timelapses, distance timelapses (a shot every x meters), multiple shots with different exposures for HDR, stars trails, sounds or vibrations triggers, etc.
