Personal indoor/outdoor weather station and free app lets users
monitor the qualit y of their micro and macro living environments,
accurately track ing and monitoring both weather and A ir Q ualit y.
Paris – August 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
WiFi 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 and
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 WiFi 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.
Official Pricing:
US Dollars : 179 $
Euro: 169€
Sterling : 139 £
Swiss Franc : 209 CHF
In addition to receiving realtime 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 module 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 at www.netatmo.com.
