Netatmo Urban Weather Station video

netatmo urban weather stationBarometers and home weather stations have been arround for centuries but the people from Netatmo have brought this concept right up to date with their Netatmo Urban Weather Station which has been specifically designed for iOS and Android devices.

What you get is two environmental monitoring units, one for indoors and one for out. The indoor unit connects to the internet over WiFi and relays its readings, alond with those obtained wirelessly from the outdoor unit, to a central location accessible with either the iOS or Android app.

The units don’t just measure temperature though as air quality, humidity, CO2 and other polutant concentrations are also measured, graphed and monitored.

In the short video below I’ll show you what the units look like as well as some live example reading from my iPad.

Features:

  • Weather and Air Quality monitoring, indoor and outdoor .
  • Measure CO2 concentration and monitor confinement.
  • Get local Air Quality Index report, real-time.
  • The Netatmo Station measures indoor temperature, CO2 concentration, noise pollution and humidity in the home.
  • Your Netatmo station also indicates the best moment to ventilate.
