We recently had the chance to review a Weather@Home Monitor from Oregon Scientific:
"Weather@Home Line - The new expanded line of at-home weather stations offers easy-to-use tracking solutions that let you view reliable up-to-the-minute climate updates at a glance. It also eliminates the hassle of having to search TV listings or the web to obtain an accurate forecast. With three models to choose from, these space-saving home weather stations offer the added convenience of App connectivity so users have the option to view weather updates on the main unit or via a Bluetooth-enabled smart device, like a tablet or phone. Weather alerts include 12-hour forecast, barometric pressure, indoor/outdoor temperature, humidity and even the changing phases of the moon."

We are really enjoying using this gadget to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures. This time of year is a crazy weather time for Texas...85 degrees one day and 50 degrees the next. It's pretty unpredictable. We enjoy having our windows open during this season and this monitor let's us see at a glance what the temperature difference is so that we can decide if we should open them or not. It also gauges humidity which is a major factor along the coast where we live. The monitor is easy enough for the kiddos to use and I think it's helping them understand weather patterns a bit more, which is an added bonus:)
The sensor is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and can be mounted outside of your house for reliable temperature readings.
It's also neat that the monitor can track the highs and lows over a 7 day period. Pretty cool stuff! The monitor has an Ice Alert function as well, which would be great for colder climates. The LED screen is easy to read and is backlit at the touch of a button in case you want to take a reading in dimmer light.
So many cool functions and a great price too! This unit is just under $40.
This will be a great tool year round!
