Stated plain and simply, the best home weather stations are those that fit your needs precisely, with no extraneous feature and no extraneous costs. However, finding the right weather station for your needs and your budget may not be such a simple task. There are hundreds of online vendors, and hundreds of models of weather station, which makes knowing what suits you best a little bit of a challenge.

There are a few main manufacturers of weather stations. The jury's still out on which company designs and produces the best home weather stations, but two strong players in the market have always been Davis Instruments and La Crosse Technology. Other companies include the well-known Rainwise, Inc. and Kestrel, a company that produces handheld weather instruments.

Comparing Models to Find the Best Home Weather Stations

Because there are so many highly varied products in the weather station market, companies often release feature comparison charts. These charts make it easy to see the strengths of each product at a glance. Also, since features are more or less similar for all companies that produce weather instruments, charts make comparing between companies easy as well. Viewing comparison charts is also a good way to realize exactly what you're looking for in a weather station.

There are a few key features that you might be interested in. Firstly, you may want to look for a weather station that can receive data from a remote sensor. This allows you to have the weather station inside of your home, and still monitor the data from outside. Secondly, you may be interested in finding a weather station that is designed to blend in with your interior decor. While this is not an issue for some people, others may want to minimize the "eyesore factor" often associated with tech products.
