And before you ask, this is not going to be a bitch post complaining about how cold and snowy it has been. Personally, I love snow, always have.
I installed a neat little bit of hardware in my house that monitors various aspects of the weather. Both inside my house and outside. Very cool. It has a nice web interface to bring up what the station is gathering, and includes charts/graphs as well. It also has smartphone apps that show the same information. All this is great. The units work as expected and is my go-to weather app on my phone now. It is called NetAtmo and can be ordered from their website. Installation was quick and easy, even mounting the outdoor unit was cake. The outdoor unit is completely wireless, and runs on batteries. So far, after being on the house for 9 months, I am still showing 95% battery. Very acceptable. The indoor unit is plugged into the wall and sitting on the counter in my house. It connects to the internet wirelessly and is completely stand-alone. Please click more to see how I am now contributing to Louisville’s weather watching.
