DIY Weather App Using Netatmo Makes Weather Tracking Simple And Customizable
Dark Sky, the much-speculated weather app, was recently acquired by Apple. It was also shut down for all the Android users which forced them to find alternatives. One of the alternatives was making do with your own local weather station. A smart home device company called Netatmo has come up with a range of indoor and outdoor sensors that connect to your local network and can measure various things such as temperature, pressure, humidity, and air quality levels. Other sensors are optional, but setting up these will help you in tracking wind speed and rainfall.
The hardest part of setup is finding the right spot for measuring the weather conditions accurately.
On the other hand, the setup of these devices is fairly straightforward. These smart home devices are perfect for users renting out an apartment as they are portable and do not require permanent positioning. Once installed, the user will get all the local alerts based on the data collected by all the sensors on the Netatmo app. The app also offers multiple dashboards where you can view historical trends. It will also allow you to view the weather at other locations where other users have installed these sensors. The smart home system can easily link with either Apple’s HomeKit or Samsung SmartThings, which is another advantage.
