The Netatmo NWS01-US weather station consists of a pair of upright, stylishly minimalist, recyclable aluminum cylinders. One cylinder goes outside and monitors exterior conditions, while the other stays inside to monitor interior conditions. You can add additional interior units and a rain gauge to go with the exterior one. In return it will give you highly local weather data, a 7-day forecast, and the temperature and humidity in your home.
Why would you want this information? Maybe you raise crops, either as a farmer or as a backyard gardener, and need to know the temperature, rainfall amount, and whether the barometer's rising or falling. Maybe you have particularly sensitive skin and want to know the current UV levels on your patio, so you can put on sunscreen. Maybe you're worried about carbon dioxide levels in your house. Or maybe you're just obsessed with noise pollution in your immediate environment and want to track it over time.
The Netatmo NWS01-US will monitor all of that data and more, then send it to a smartphone app, which can graph the information over time and grab the 7-day forecast off the Internet from the Meteogroup weather service.
If all this sounds interesting, by all means take a closer look at the Netatmo, but bear in mind that most of its functions can be performed by less expensive and more old-fashioned hardware and that weather reports are already easily available on your computer, smartphone, TV or radio. This probably won't discourage true weather buffs from springing for the Netatmo's not inconsiderable price, but you might want to look at other weather stations like the AcuRite 01085RM before you get out your credit card.
I got mine few months ago and love it! Setting it up was pretty easy. Now I have accurate information about local weather as well as from my friends around the world.
Works great! Very accurate and a lot of fun to use and track my local weather. CO2 has been very interesting to monitor and have come control over.
May be a bit pricey, but if you want to monitor your home's sound and humidity levels, air quality, and room temperature, it's money well spent.
Pricey but well designed. The apps are pretty and display useful information, and the sensors have a good range.
With modern design, good accuracy, and an easy-to-use iOS app, it makes it simple and fun to check the current weather... to record and view weather data over time.
If you want to know more about the conditions in and around your home, the Netatmo Weather Station is a helpful, if not completely necessary, tool.
Bought as a replacement for a Windows based home weather station and the difference is remarkable. Easy to set up and so far exceeds expectations.
This system works well, but the appeal might be too limited to justify the price.
The outdoor module has a very limited range, so much so, that I've had to move it to within about 8 meters of the wifi sender. It also eats batteries. Not impressed!
The readings from either the indoor or outdoor module were so far off from reality I wondered how such product ever made it to market. This product can not be relied on...
