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


    Weather Display which comes with some HomeSeer scripts that populate devices within the HomeSeer interface.

    Where can I find Weather Display?

    Sorry not quite feeling like the sharpest pencil in the box here...

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

    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.

    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?

    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?

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

    started a topic How to get outside temp and humidity

    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.
