Quality Control

Netatmo is a home weather station that goes far beyond displaying the temperature and providing a forecast. It wirelessly connects to your smartphone or tablet, so the information is always at your fingertips. Even better, Netatmo also tests the humidity, air quality, CO2 level, and even the amount of ambient noise indoors. And because it stores the details, you can track trends and reference the past easily. Knowing your home’s air quality is especially valuable, since it’s something humans do not sense easily. Let Netatmo alert you when it’s time to open some windows and let the fresh air in. Or set up other personalized alerts—like getting a text when it dips below freezing outside. You don’t even have to be home to get a notice, so create one to inform you when the ambient noise level is too high (are the kids blasting music when you finally have a night out?). Netatmo’s industrial design will fit in anywhere. Its two aluminum cylinders are elegantly modern. One is placed outdoors to provide accurate conditions right outside your home (temperature, humidity, air quality) while one stays inside to keep tabs on all of that plus CO2 levels. Add additional indoor modules to track conditions in different parts of the house, or a rain gauge to measure local precipitation. With Netatmo, the details of your atmosphere just got a whole lot clearer.

    Hello everyone! I'm happy to present Netatmo to The Grommet. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have. I've answered a few myself with Mike down below.

    Why is this something people should have in their homes?

    The Weather Station will allow users to adapt to changes in the weather and get personal notifications from their smartphone. They will also be able to improve their health and wellness inside their homes by monitoring their CO2 levels and knowing when to take steps to ventilate with fresh air.

    There are a lot of measurements captured in Netatmo. Was there internal debate about which elements of a home's atmosphere to capture?

  • Sean
    Sean – Special Guest
    6/12/2015 4:44 PM

    There are many products on the market that will measure harmful toxic gases in your home and alert you when levels reach critical points. High CO2 levels are what most people are unaware of and don’t realize the effects of if they are exposed to these levels for a long period of time. These include loss of concentration, headaches, sleepiness and potentially longer term effects such as development of allergies and asthma. We spend 80% of our times in doors so we felt it is important to help people be more conscious of their CO2 levels in their home.

    The only gas that the device measures is CO2.

    @Sean What about pollen and air pollutants? I'm in Austin, TX but also spend time overseas (China) - it's a major concern in both places.

  • Natalie
    Natalie
    6/15/2015 4:08 PM

    @Sean Also, if you are reporting on high CO2 levels, what can people do about it? Get more plants??

  • Sean
    Sean – Special Guest
    6/15/2015 4:25 PM

    Hi Natalie,

    We currently only measure CO2 levels inside with the indoor module. We are looking at how we can expand to measure more pollutants and gases both indoors and outdoors for future models.

    When the device is reporting high levels of CO2 it is most likely the result of stagnant air and the best action that we suggest is opening a window or trying to get in fresh air in the room.

    Thanks!

    Our founder, Fred Potter, is an innovator in the IOT space and has always looked at new ways to keep people connected to their environment. With the Weather Station, we took a category that has lacked innovation and brought new excitement to consumers by making the first Weather Station designed for smartphones so customers can be connected to what is happening with their home environment no matter where they are.

    What are the dimensions of the inside module and will it be able to work inside something like a cabinet or should I leave it on a counter/windowsill?

  • Sean
    Sean – Special Guest
    6/15/2015 12:46 PM

    @zach Hi Zach! The dimensions are 6" X 1.75" X 1.75." You will want to leave it out on a counter or table to make sure you are getting accurate readings for the temp, humidity, CO2 levels and noise level in that room. It is not that large and the idea behind the design was to make it fit in nicely with the rest of your home decor.

    Hi Sean, congrats on your cool products.

    Like many others, I have no interest in a smart phone as I think they should only be used for phone calls; I've always been content with my laptop, and I now have a Windows Surface (which is still too small to replace a laptop but is handy for a few things). Can I operate your Weather Station from my computer or Surface?

    Best of luck to you.

  • James

    @SEAN...

    I forgot to also ask... is it best to place the outdoor module in a place where it has full force of the sun/elements, or under shelter and/or shade?

    And ZACK asked a good question, too about putting it in a cabinet; I think a food pantry would be a great place for an indoor unit! (if it can properly function in a small space).

    [P.S. don't be discouraged by the lack of questions from the Community; I think the video and description did a really good job of answer most questions.]

  • Sean
    Sean – Special Guest
    6/15/2015 1:05 PM

    @James Sorry! I just saw your additional questions come through. For the outdoor module, you will want to place it in an area that is not getting direct sun light as that could alter the readings. So placing it under shelter or in shade would be perfect!

    For the indoor module, you will only want to pace it in a cabinet if you are specifically look to measure the temperature, humidity and other data it will measure for that specific area. The additional module accessory would be great for that so that.

    Thank for your questions!

    Sean, I didn't see an answer to James question about the outdoors location or placement of that module. Does it mount to something so it doesn't get blown over during a storm. For that matter is it waterproof?

  • Sean
    Sean – Special Guest
    6/15/2015 1:16 PM

    @Robert

    Hi Robert, you will want to keep the outdoor module under some type of shelter or in shade to keep it out of direct sunlight. It does come with a wall mount kit so that you can hang it using a nail or use a Velcro strap. It waterproof as well.

    Thanks!

You will get real time updates on the weather for your exact location so you can adapt your commute to work based on how you will get there or what you may need to wear. You will also receive weather advisory notifications so when you wake up you will know immediately if you should be anticipating inclement weather.

    Sean--does this not need to be secured from windstorms--what about snow sleet --and freezing rain--does it let you know if it will rain or snow obviously not the amount of precipitation to come and I saw rain guage to measure volume

  • Sean
    Sean – Special Guest
    6/15/2015 1:29 PM

    Hi Doug,

    Ideally you will want to use the mount kit that is provided to make sure it is secure during a windstorm. In the app you do get a 7 day forecast and you will also receive notifications for sleet, freezing rain, snow advisory, etc.

    The Rain Gauge accessory is perfect to measure the amount of rainfall you receive and later this fall we will be launching our Wind Gauge accessory so you can measure the wind speed and direction!

    Thanks!

    Hi Todd,

    The indoor module is powered by a USB wall charger. The outdoor module takes two AAA batteries which come in the box and will typically last about one year before they need to be replaced.

    Thanks!
