With Christmas only two months away and with the appearance of snow flurries on the horizon, I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to talk about this great gift I purchased for my mother.
In an age of increasing uncertain weather patterns, technology has once again come to the rescue. The Batman and Robin of #IoT High Tech Weather gadgets,the Netatmo Indoor and outdoor weather stations provides you with a device to monitor both environments. The Netatmo \weather station provides accurate monitoring of temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, air quality and other factors. In addition to providing a localized forecast Netatmo also provides you with accurate information on indoor CO2 pollution levels within your home.
Compatible with IOS, Android and Windows compatible smart devices, the Netatmo weather app allows you to track (in real time) or forecast (long term) your weather environment. In addition to providing traditional day to day (temperature, rainfall, humidity) information, the Netatmo app offers a full seven day forecast by the MetoGroup for a personalized weather tracking information.
I purchased the Netatmo weather station for my mom for a few specific reasons.
- First of all it will be very easy for my mom to set up. It also addresses one big peeve my mother has about electronic Gizmos being very clunky and awkward looking. The Netatmo Weather station is small, sleek and elegant enough to sit anywhere within my mother’s home.
- In addition to being very easy to install, the app provides the consumer with a cornucopia of very accurate information that will have you thinking twice about turning on your TV and listening to the weatherman’s forecast. Given that my mother is a senior, the ease of use is very important for seniors.
- Lastly, the both modules run on standardized power configurations. Specifically, the indoor Netatmo Weather station module is powered by a USB wall adapter while the outdoor Netatmo Weather station module operates on 2 AAA batteries.
Looks great, easy to use, accurate and simple to support. Netatmo helped me to start my Christmas shopping with a present that will be loved for years to come. Perhaps every time my mom checks the weather forecast she will be thinking about me also.
