Have you ever been annoyed by weather forecasters who call for sunshine, but you get rained on instead? We can be forgiving once in awhile because weather experts are still prone to human error. But if you’d like to take matters into your own hands, there’s a nifty device out there that let’s YOU be the meteorologist for once.
Netatmo has introduced the Personal Urban Weather Station. Although many of us have seen those little desktop weather stations, this new device is reportedly the first to use your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with personal weather monitors to track indoor and outdoor environmental conditions. This includes things like temperature, humidity, air pressure, CO2 levels and even sound levels.
You’ll get two monitors. One is for indoor-use, the other for outdoors. They both have aluminum bodies to protect them from the elements they are monitoring.
After that, you can play meteorologist all week long. You’ll be able to monitor current conditions, see a 7-day forecast, and even call up graphs to recognize trends.
There’s also an interesting feature that indicates outside air quality. If you wish to see what’s causing your air quality to be less than perfect, the device will give you a reading from a local pollution monitor. The tool will tell you if it’s a problem like ozone pollution from the downtown core.
The Netatmo Weather Station is $179.00.
