When I bought some 1-wire sensors a while ago at Hobby boards I included the lightning detector in the order. I installed it indoors in the attic where it also counts the switch of the fluorescent lights, so it will probably work better in an outdoor weather station further away from interference. But, in the early hours of today there was a heavy thunderstorm over this country and it counted like crazy. The stated sensitivity is about 80 kilometers:this lightning detector will be able to pick up lightning more than 50 miles awayWith the 75000 lightning strikes reported in the Netherlands for that night, the numbers don't look that strange.
