This is for someone who has just put their clean washing outside to dry, this sensor detects when it is raining and gives you a warning.

There is nothing worse than putting a batch of clean washing outside to dry in the early sun, only to realize a while later that it is raining and probably has been for some time, the washing that was almost dry is now soaked with more water than it was when you first hung it out, of course this is not the end of the world, neither will it save your life, but this is an inconvenience that you could be doing without and this gadget will be the thing that can save you all that hassle, when you can be doing something else.

The sensor is quite simple really, the gadget comes in two pieces, one which is the sensor, this can be placed outside somewhere, probably near to the washing if that is why you need it, and then as soon as a drop of rain hit’s the sensor, then the other part which you have placed somewhere where you can hear it, will make a sound to alert you that it has just started raining and so to get the washing in if you want to, or it is also an indication that you should take your umbrella with you.

    this is completely useless and a waste of money. oh man, i can get the laundry in after it started raining cas there needs to be rain falling to activate the device. Cloudy skies would never indicate that it might rain!!
