You are saying that any company that wants to introduce a new product to compete with other products on the market are doomed for failure? Don't tell Samsung, Vizio, Apple, Google or 1000s of other companies that. Didn't Bloomsky start after NetAtmo?
You mean "normal" people aren't interested in how high the solar radiation or the UV is? We don't know how well the lightning detector will work but if it as good as the 1-wire HobbyBoard detector was, that would be very useful.
OK, so the NetAtmo has a noise detector, for whatever that is worth. The WeatherFlow indoor sensor will have VOC, CO2, Dust, Temp & Humidity sensors. You will be able to connect the WeatherFlow to 1000s of devices already on the market. Just like the NetAtmo, if a device can be access via ITFFF it can be used with the WeatherFlow.
From what I could see on the NetAtmo site, you can only get updates every 5 minutes via their "cloud" services. The WeatherFlow will update (interval user configured) as frequent as once per minute (working on getting more frequent updates).
It does appear that the rated accuracy of some of the NetAtmo sensors are slightly better. 0.1C better on temp and 1% better on Humidity. Does the target customer really care if it is 25.1C instead of 25C or 55% humidity rather than 56%? I would have to question NetAtmo's stated 1 mm/h / 0.04 in/h tipping bucket accuracy. What that is telling me is that each bucket tip is equal to 1mm/0.04" per tip, IMHO that is way too course of a measurement. Even the cheapest Chinese import weather station is better than that!
Anyways, we'll see in the fall when I get mine. I'll make sure I do updates on how it's going. Hopefully it's leaps and bounds better then Bloomsky.
