Then there is the concept of a comfort zone. Even though we humans are masters of existing in diverse habitats from the frozen tundra to the tropics our tolerance of temperature is actually quite narrow. We get around a lack of comfort by wearing warm or cool clothes, by clustering around heaters or turning on the air conditioning.
A smart modern way of keeping tabs on the weather, particularly as it affects our home precinct, is to install a weather station.
Holman have introduced the new iWeather intelligent environmental data weather station. The system consists of a data gathering station which is mounted on the outside of your home and transmits the collected data wirelessly to a pad inside the house that has all the readings and results.
What can it tell you about the weather?
- Wind direction and speed.
- Temperature indoors and out, there’s a comfort zone with alarms possible when you improve into the discomfort zone.
- Rain guage
- Barometric pressure with a history so you can see trends in this predictive measure
- Humidity has a real role in human comfort this is shown for outside and indoors
- Moon phases if you like to garden the lunar way
- Digital clock
- Forecasts are based on barometric pressure
- History gives you information on the last 12 hours of humidity
- Comfort indicator
- Daily alarm if you need to do something at the same time every day like wake up for example. And yes there is a snooze button.
