It may be time for you to say, "Adios" to your old outdoor thermometer, and purchase a new indoor weather station. Indoor weather stations offer a number of advantages over outdoor, analog models. If you're looking for precision, there's nothing more accurate and consistent than a good electronic weather station.

Basic models can cost as little as 35 dollars, and the price includes everything you need for accurate, up-to-the-minute information. The base station rests on your desktop or wall, and prominent digital information is displayed on a large liquid crystal display. More commonly accessed information, such as temperature and humidity information, is usually larger, and can be read from a few feet away.

Most weather stations, even in that price range, can receive information from more than one temperature sensor. Though only packaged with one, many weather stations are capable of receiving and interpreting a signal from at least three sensors, and some are capable of using as many as eight sensors to collect information. Not all of the sensors have to measure the same thing, either.

Alternative Uses For Indoor Weather Stations

Some products can be used with submersible thermometers, which are great for keeping an eye on the temperature of your pool or hot tub. Others can accept more specialized data, such as leaf moisture data, for more scientific applications. Indoor weather stations are versatile devices for consumers that demand convenience, accuracy, and quality.
