How to buy the Best Home Weather Station

Durability – Because your home weather station is intended to measure all sorts of weather conditions, you’ll need to buy a weather station and sensors that can stand up to even the most inclement weather. Look for weather stations that have rugged features, like a casing for protection from erosion or moisture. Also check on the warranty, as some manufacturing companies will reimburse you if the weather station doesn’t live up to its promises. Weather stations should be weather proof!

Transmission distance – Setup of your weather station can be crucial to its accuracy. Most importantly, it needs to sit within a certain distance of the main control panel display. Standard wireless weather station sensors usually work within about 330 feet, but more premium models have a wireless transmission distance of up to 1,000 feet away. Make sure that the transmission distance is suitable for the location you are operating your weather station in.

Connectivity – In a standard weather station setup, your outdoor weather sensors will connect to an indoor base station that displays the observed weather measurements. Some more advanced setups will also connect to your computer or mobile device, so you can view your weather stats remotely on your phone for example. You can also have several view consoles to view the weather no matter which room you’re in. Still not impressed? Certain weather station models are even integrated with Amazon Alexa, so you can ask her for your local weather station data without leaving your armchair.
