The backbone of any good home weather station is a quality remote thermometer. Since the weather concerns on many people's minds center around temperature, this is no surprise. No matter what other features a digital weather station may offer, all are equipped with a thermometer of some kind, and most include a remote thermometer.

Some weather stations are engineered especially for single-room usage. These small monitors usually have a thermometer and a hygrometer built in, and also may feature a barometer. Depending on the model and make, they can occasionally receive data from remote sensory, but that isn't always the case.

The majority of weather stations currently on the market, however, include both a built in temperature sensor and a remote thermometer. The remote thermometer is usually built into an array of sensors, often referred to as a sensor suite. The sensor suite is a great way to pack all kinds of data sampling tools into one package, which, in many cases, is powered by a single source, such as a photovoltaic cell.

Other Varieties of Remote Thermometer

There are many specific kinds of remote digital thermometer available today. Any kitchen or housewares store will usually carry a selection of thermometers. Some, made for cooking and grilling, can operate over a range of as much as 100 feet, allowing you to watch the temperature of your burgers or BBQ and not miss a second of the big game.
