In-Store Sightings: Oregon Scientific Crystal Weather Station

Img 0296

We visited Sharper Image over the weekend, and spotted the Oregon Scientific Crystal Weather Station. The crystal weather station is really impressive in person. The crystals of sun, rain, and clouds look pretty amazing, and the display is also very clear and easy to read. The heft of the crystal weather station is also impressive, and we think this is one of the best looking home weather stations we've seen.

TV Weather Station - Create Your Own Weather Channel at Home

Tv Weather Station

Remember those late nights in your youth where you would turn to your local station and see images of a barometer, temperature gauge, etc. spinning endlessly, telling you the local weather? Now you can have your own dedicated weather at home 24 hours a day. This home weather station connects to your TV and provides an in-depth readout of the current conditions around your home. An included temperature, rain and wind sensor can be placed around your yard, and wirelessly broadcasts the data collected back to the base station in your house.

Your personal home weather channel will have details on:

  • current temperature inside and outside
  • wind chill factor
  • wind direction
  • wind speed
  • barometric trend
  • rainfall
  • humidity

The receiver will also calculate a forecast based on weather trends over the past 72 hours, and it's only going to cost you $129.99.

Serial Output for Your Weather Station

Avr-Weather

Want to add a new interface to your weather station? This cool article in italian will show you how.

[Fickara] sent in his AVR interface(in Italian) for an Oregon Scientific remote weather station. Thanks to the AVR, data is output via RS232. There are quite a few less expensive weather stations - usually PC output models are over $100, so this could be pretty handy. His page has several other projects including an oscope clock, POV on a stick, etc.

Wireless Weather Station Looks Great in Your Living Room

51230Tjaj5L. Aa280

Oregon Scientific's Wireless Weather Forecaster displays 12- and 24-hour weather forecasts, monitors indoor and outdoor temperature, and sets its integrated clock to the US Atomic Clock signal for precision time. Set up the main console indoors where it's convenient to read, and set up the remote, wireless sensor anywhere indoors or out to measure temperature and humidity from up to 100 feet away. Sunny, rainy, and cloudy weather conditions are depicted with easy-to-read graphical icons. The wireless sensor features an LCD display that shows temperature and humidity levels wherever it's stationed. And, since the clock automatically sets itself to the U.S. Atomic Clock, it never needs adjusting for Daylight Saving Time.

Davis Weather Instruments 6152C Cabled Vantage Pro2 with Standard Radiation Shield

Vp2Cp

We've been looking into smaller companies that provide high quality weather stations for your home or business. We like the fact the sensor on the Davis 6152C weather station has an integrated rain, humidity, and anemometer. The sensor is also housed in a standard radiation shield which gives for better temperature readings. This system is also cabled instead of being wireless, which should give it better all-weather performance.

Review: Honeywell TN924W Complete Wireless Home Weather Station

Tn924W Vert

We just finished over a month of testing on the Honeywell TN924W Complete Wireless Home Weather Station.

Is it worth the nearly $300 you'll spend to have your own wireless home weather station you can hook up to your PC and other neat features?
