PROS

  • Setting up the Netatmo Weather Station is simple. The wireless modules come paired to each other, so all you need to do is find a safe spot for the outdoor module.
  • The mobile apps are beautifully designed and look great on iOS, Android, and Windows Phones.
  • You can pair up to four indoor modules together to monitor multiple locations in your home..

CONS

  • Considering it lacks wind measurements and much of the information from the Weather Station can be found on free mobile apps, the product is pricey.
  • For casual tracking, the Weather Station doesn’t offer much more than smartphone weather apps, but it should appeal to weather geeks.
  • The outdoor module has to be placed away from direct sunlight and protected from rain, which limits its placement options. In urban locations, you’ll also have to worry about theft.
The Netatmo Weather Station is a smart weather station with Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile app support. Apps are available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. The package includes both an indoor and an outdoor module. A USB wall adapter powers the indoor module, while the outdoor module requires two AAA batteries. The Weather Station measures indoor and outdoor temperatures, humidity, barometric pressure, CO2 levels, and noise. It’s 802.11 /b/g/n compatible, and an Internet-connected Wi-Fi router and mobile device are required for operation.

Critically, the system is extremely easy to set up thanks to an iOS app that walks the indoor unit through the process of connecting to your 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi network and the outdoor unit, without any hiccups whatsoever in our testing.

Being able to view a graph of any measurement over time can be helpful in certain situations, but like the ability to record sound levels, may be an unnecessary frill for some.

How's the accuracy? That's something I'm really not sure about, since the readings were not what I expected for humidity.

There is no shortage of consumer weather station products for the consumer market. However, how many would you actually WANT to put in public view inside or outside of your home? Thankfully, Netatmo did a really nice job in this department.

Access the weather on your porch from your iPhone
A very cool product! I check the weather every morning as soon as I wake up so I know if it's warm enough to go for a run, and having hyper-local weather (right on my porch) on my iPhone's Today screen is very convenient.
