This is a pretty cool device, and will let you get indoor and outdoor
environmental information. My local temperature fluctuates vastly
around town, and it would be nice to know what my own backyard setting
is really at. In addition, I like that you can get C02 reading.

Netatmo debuts its Urban Weather Station: The first Personal Weather Station for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch
Personal indoor/outdoor Weather Station and free App lets users monitor
the quality of their micro and macro living environments, accurately
tracking and monitoring both Weather and Air Quality

PARIS –
August 27 2012 – Netatmo, a company dedicated to designing products that
monitor the weather and environment, unveils its Urban Weather Station,
a new device specifically designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that
allows users to monitor indoor and outdoor environmental elements
including temperature, humidity, air pressure, CO2 levels and more.

The
Netatmo Weather Station quantifies personal environments like the home
and office, and wirelessly transmits data through Wi-Fi to the Netatmo
App, which features an intuitive, easy-to-read interface.
“Air
quality and weather conditions are a daily concern for city residents
around the globe,” said Fred Potter, CEO, Netatmo. “By integrating Air
Quality sensors into an easy-to-use Personal Weather Station,
specifically designed for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch, we’re able to
help users improve their indoor wellness and adapt their outdoor
activities – creating a better way of life for everyone.”

With
this Wi-Fi connected Personal Weather Station, Netatmo also aims to
create the largest Weather and Air Quality monitoring network ever
established.

A key innovation in the station is its ability to
evaluate indoor air confinement by measuring CO2 concentration. When C02
reaches an excessive level, the user is alerted directly on his or her
iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and can take action like ventilating his or
her home.

The Air Quality conditions reported by the Netatmo App
also allow users to assess the best times for outdoor physical activity,
when to commute versus drive to work and more – all instances where Air
Quality is of the utmost importance.

In
addition to receiving real-time notifications on Air Quality and
Weather conditions, users have access to a lifetime online account, free
of any subscriptions, where all station measurements and data are
stored. Over time, users can access data history and review it using the
Netatmo App.
On a much larger, more impactful scale, Netatmo
allows users to contribute to its Urban Weather Program, creating a
wider network for weather data monitoring and pooling to help
meteorologists, environmental activists, scientists and people living in
urban environments gain a better understanding of the city climate
landscape.

The data collected from the Netatmo Community could
possibly turn into a crucial resource for climate research, helping us
all get a stronger connection to the world in which we live.
Other
functions of the Urban Weather Station include a detailed seven-day
forecast and a light indicator for reading CO2 levels. The Urban Weather
Station can even detect sound to make sure average noise levels in the
home remain at a healthy balance, a helpful feature for parents looking
to protect their family from noise pollution.

The Netatmo Urban Weather Station comes with one indoor and one outdoor module to monitor each living environment.

The
shell for both modules, constructed from a single piece of durable
aluminum, features a smooth, clean design. The indoor and outdoor
modules are powered by the included USB wall Adapter and 4 AAA
batteries, respectively, and come packaged with a wall mount kit for
outdoor installation.
Netatmo’s Urban Weather Station is now available for $179 at www.netatmo.com. The Netatmo App is available for free on the App Store.
