Why buy a weather station?

by Volker Weber

When I said goodbye to Eve, somebody suggested to get a Netatmo. Turns out I don't have to buy one. I can just use any in my neighborhood. Or elsewhere on the planet.

And they DO have a Windows (Phone) App, yeah ;)

Though I do not get it: great tip!

If you don't live in a city, or near an airport, a home weather station can be very useful.

Obviously, the other very valid reason, is you live in an area with no internet connection.

Carl Tyler, 2016-02-29 21:18

Thank you - a great find.

And it happens that there is someone very close to me that has one!

I had a netatmo, until I discovered my next door neighbour also had one. It went straight back to Amazon :)

Some use it also for indoors to monitor the air quality. That is one thing the device of your neighbour can't do for you.

But the location data seems to be very good. A friend of mine has one and the location of his on the map is spot on.

Carl, of course. My question implies that (a) there are plenty in the neighborhood and (b) I can reach them.

With the Weather Underground App (free) for iOS you can also see (use) the Netatmo weather stations?

Or the other way around. Netatmo seems to be one of the sources for this app.

Looks very interesting.. not sure if I want to buy one though. Some reviews are not favourable. Saying outdoor module fails within 12 months and Netatmo do not respond.

I got one in October 2014 and it is still working. Good looking software and very functional. Not 100% sure if it is really accurate.

Torsten Armbruster, 2016-03-02 15:57

When setup correctly, it seems pretty accurate. Especially if you place the outside sensor in a good position (shade, away from walls and plants).
