Weather station for iOS
Netatmo has made the Urban Weather Station device available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that allows users to monitor indoor and outdoor environmental elements including temperature, humidity, air pressure and CO2 levels.
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.
