Protecting outside weather station

Post by biondi » 08 Jan 2014, 16:06

Where does everyone else put their outside station to protect it from rain but enable it to to be exposed enough to measure humidity?

cheers,

Matt

Thanks Tonky, looks good but quite pricey - does anyone have any cheaper alternatives?

That would be nice for anyone buying it from new but for those of us who already have one?

I spoke to Netatmo support today, they confirmed there will be a rain-proof outdoor unit "in a few months".

Excellent Tonky, thanks. I haven't translated that yet and can't see from the pictures - so will that protect the device from rain also? I can't quite see how it would stop rain getting in from the top. Looks great though.

Yes rain and sun, the fan is an option you can use.
And make sure you use spacers between the disks for wind circulation.
Also if they are not white you should paint the disks white.

Your last remark, the fan is at the bottom, so turn it around. :-)
And the first 2 disks are not open.
