Does anyone know of a simple sensor that than tell me what the temperature is outside. Cant seem to find any which are weatherproof"!
Netatmo weather station. Might be more than what you’re looking for.
Thanks, was hoping something far simpler and cheaper was available!
There’s also these.
If you can do a little programming you can use ST_Anything + a DTH22 sensor which is good from -40 to 80* C. https://www.adafruit.com/product/385. Probably the cheapest option but its a little DYI.
Is the SmartWeather SmartApp still a thing? That will give you weather for your zipcode.
Yeah, the SmartWeather Station tile is still a device type. Just add a new device, choose the SmartWeather Station Tile type. I think itll prompt you for a Zip Code and will update the outdoor temp based on Wunderground data.
No need to buy any sensors.
I use the weather station tile because I find it to be “good enough.” I suppose whether the OP agrees would depend on the exact use case.
Thanks. I mostly asked becuase it seems like I have to open the device detail and hit the refresh icon to get it to update. Obviously this isn;t ideal if you want to utilize this info for anything.
