April 27, 2007, Newsletter Issue #61: Weather Station Sensor Zones

Tip of the Week

You have a large property--not like Paris Hilton's, of course, but large. You can't be everywhere at once, even though you somehow earned the title of "Mom" and the standard eyes in the back of your head. After all, you are running a daycare center out of your home. You need to monitor:

--The outdoor play area
--The back yard
--The wading pool
--The driveway in winter
--The rainfall on the west side of the house where the kids love to slide in the mud

When you compare wireless weather stations, which you can of course try to write off as a business expense, check to see that your Oregon Scientific weather station has the ability to monitor up to five locations.

The Vantage Pro weather station will work if you don't mind just a straight line range of up to 1,000 feet across your property...oh, and it is compatible with up to eight different sensor types, so you can see if the soil is moist enough for little Susie to grow her cucumber seedlings. Even if it doesn't have the capability to monitor five different locations, you can set up to 70 alarms, which is helpful if Billy likes to ride his scooter on the driveway...in winter.

On the other hand, you just expanded your business and built a new playroom. That LaCrosse weather station (W2210) that monitors nine different sensors looks like a terrific investment. After all, you love kids. You love your ever-expanding home. You also love your peace of mind.
