After spending 80 hours researching dozens of home weather stations and testing four of the most promising models, we think the Netatmo Weather Station, combined with its add-on Wind Gauge and Rain Gauge, is the best solution for most people who want to monitor their local meteorological conditions and trends easily and reliably. A simple setup, the most intuitive mobile app we used, and a compact, modular design make the Netatmo stand out. It’s great if you’re most interested in big-picture weather trends like local rainfall totals, temperature, humidity, and wind speed and direction.

Netatmo Weather Station, an accurate, modular weather station

Netatmo Weather Station

An accurate, modular weather station
One of the easiest weather stations to use and install, the Netatmo also has affordable add-on modules to give you a reliable and accurate overview of your local weather trends.
We recommend
Netatmo Wind Gauge, a useful add-on

Netatmo Wind Gauge

A useful add-on
Unlike most wind gauges, this Netatmo add-on relies on ultrasonic sensors to detect both wind speed and direction.
We recommend
Netatmo Rain Gauge, for precipitation data

Netatmo Rain Gauge

For precipitation data
Small enough to be installed pretty much anywhere, this rain gauge can be calibrated to provide more-accurate rainfall measurements—a rare feature in this price range.
We recommend
Davis Instruments 6250 Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station, better sensitivity and build quality

Davis Instruments 6250 Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station

Better sensitivity and build quality
This pick earns its much higher price with even better build quality than the Netatmo, more-sensitive rain and wind measurements, and more-frequently updated data. But it’s overkill for most people.
A better upgrade
Davis WeatherLinkIP, the bridge between your weather station and the internet

Davis WeatherLinkIP

The bridge between your weather station and the Internet
Unlike most of the weather stations we tested, the Davis solution requires this sold-separately add-on for online weather data logging.
A better upgrade
AcuRite 01014M Weather Station with AcuRite Access, a slightly less accurate but affordable option

AcuRite 01014M Weather Station with AcuRite Access

A slightly less accurate but affordable option
AcuRite offers a more-affordable, all-in-one option that's simple to set up and has a useful, if somewhat dated-looking and cluttered, mobile app.
Budget friendly
