    i put it inside the coop. now i know how the weather is in the coop at all times from 200 yrds away.

    right now it is 39.2°
    humidity 88%
    pressure of 1021 hPa
    dew point 36.0
    comfort level is "wet"
    forecast is "cloudy"

    We actually have two weather stations. DH bought a new one over the summer, so we stuck the old one (the sensor) inside the coop. I love being able to see the temp and humidity in the coop from the convenience of my bedroom. With only one, I'd put it inside the coop. You can always just put a cheap thermometer outside your window to check out outside temps.

    i am a thermometer nut. i have one in the kitchen, one outside the kitchen window, one outside my home office window, one on my desk, one outside the bedroom window, one on the hall and now the one in the coop.

    yet every morning while my GF is getting ready for work she yells from across the house "is it cold outside"?

    I have several thermometers too.
    I like knowing the outside temp, without having to go outside to find out.

    -5F outside today
    +75F in the house
    10% Humidity

    +45F in the HenHouse
    20% Humidity
    -4F in the Run

    100F in the Incubator
    41% Humidity [​IMG]

    well sadly I just got this one today but it isn't registering the outside sensor or the prob which could go outside the coop.... it sees the sensor but [​IMG]

    Since the coop is now insulated I wanted to start recording the inside, outside and humidity levels.. now I am going to have to call the 800 lie.... [​IMG]

    That being said I am fairly certain the coop will remain within a mangeable level without a heat lamp... its well insulated but I want to know!
