    Default Weather Station with Temperature, Dew Point, Barometer and Humidity

    Does anyone have any suggestion on a reliable accurate outdoor/indoor unit I can purchase to monitor outside temps? Would like something wireless the provides some type alert. More concerned with temp and humidity more than anything else.

    Thanks!

    I have an Accurite unit that is fairly reliable. I the units on either side of a 3,000 sq ft house, and it has worked outside as well. In fact, I had it in my chicken coop for some time with no issues. I'm really tempted buy an awesome weather station that I could use as a civilian weather station...but luckily my budget won't allow it.

    I have two Oregon Scientific units. One with a temp and humidity sensor/sending unit in my greenhouse, with the receiver in my office. Had it for about 5-6 years with no issues. HERE is their latest version.

    I have a similar unit - temp only - suspended under a bird-feeder squirrel baffle from a tree in the back yard. It's about three years old, also fine. I thought about simply adding a second sensor for that, but my wife wanted the temperature readout in the kitchen, so we can see it while we thaw out in the morning.
