  • How to get outside temp and humidity

    Does anyone know of a device that can provide outside temp and humidity that can then be read by HomeSeer? I use Proliphix tstats and they do allow for external probes; but do not support humidity. A network attached device or ELK M1G probe would be preferred.

    I'm planning on installing a whole home air circulation system that draws fresh air from outside into the house. In order to do this automatically; I need to get an accurate outside temp and humidity reading so I can use this to cool or heat the house based on inside and outside temp.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'm using several Oregon sensors (THGR228N) and RFXCOM plugin.
    Works great.

        There are many ways to get this information into HomeSeer starting with a weather station. Then there's the previously mentioned wireless temp and humidity sensors, as well as scrapeing the data from a weather station that's near you from a site like weather underground.

        Weather stations can be bought as low as $149.95 like this station:

        and can be interfaced to HomeSeer so you can base events off of realtime weather.

          The Temp08 units work very well too.

          It's been awhile since I looked at the elk but doesn't that have a temp/humidity sensor that you can get for it?

            Thanks for the replies guys!

            I like the RFXCOM unit that is a TX & RX unit with a temp & humidity probe. Does HomeSeer allow for the purchase of the hardware and plugin on their website?

              as someone interested in doing the same...

              the RFXCOM unit and wireless sensors are easy to setup and get working... and reliable?

                Rupp,

                Just curious... how do you interface these to HS?

                  I would say fairly reliable. I do occasionally get an RF collision or a mis-read every so often, but for the most part, they work well.

                    Are you asking how I interface my weather station? If so I use Weather Display which comes with some HomeSeer scripts that populate devices within the HomeSeer interface.

                      So these weather stations transmit like an rfxcom/Oregon sensors? I thought these were just standalone devices...

                      Where can I find Weather Display?
