Make your house more comfortable to reside in with the official Netatmo apps
Netatmo produces neat home connected products enabling owners to monitor indoor temperature, relative humidity, sound levels and even CO2 readings to live in a healthier home. Weather stations monitor both inside and outside the home, while a smart thermostat ensures the house remains at a comfortable level. We're covering Netatmo because official Windows Phone apps are available for both the weather stations and Netatmo Thermostat, perfect for those who have the units installed at home.
The Windows Phone apps, as one would expect, enables consumers to connect and manage Netatmo Weather Stations and the smart thermostat. All relevant data is displayed in an easy-to-digest view, automatically recording measurements to the connected Netatmo account for further viewing. Graphs can be manipulated to really dive deep into seeing just what the stations have been monitoring, not to mention the alerts that can be configured to alert you when values peak (CO2 concentration, temperatures, etc).
You then have the 7 days weather forecast with the outdoor unit, making this quite the solution indeed. As an added bonus, the app looks gorgeous on Windows Phone. They're easy to use and contain little clutter to get in the way of glance information.
As noted above, Netatmo has also launched a companion app for its smart thermostat solution. With the app installed, consumers are able to:
- Control heating systems directly from the smartphone to optimize comfort while saving on energy bills
- Intuitive and easy navigation - set home temperature in one easy gesture
- Save energy when away
- Input information into the thermostat for it to adapt and take care of comfort levels, and help save up to 25% on energy bills
- Modify the planning whenever desired, thanks to intuitive navigation
- Record home temperature
- Analyse and understand energy consumption in beautiful and intuitive graphs

That's not a fact at all. I have been running the preview since the beginning and have experienced zero issues. There are many others who will agree with me and can tell you that it is not a bad beta, as you put it.
I grabbed my megaphone, roused the neighborhood, and danced in the street, all the while declaring that Windows Phone had won.
Coldplay and U2 swapped lead singers and put on a private concert for my street. Then Beyoncé tried to perform but I told her I was tired of her crap, and she should bring out Solange if she had any chance of staying at our party.
Hugh Hefner even stopped by and dropped off the keys to his mansion, told me he was retiring and had chosen me as his successor... So long as I liked blondes. I said I'd think about it.
Then that crotchety old guy down the street opened his window and produced a megaphone and said,
"It says Netatmo, you a__holes!"
Could not agree more. Some people are born lucky but the rest of us have to work hard for the things we want.
