Netatmo, what do I get?
« on: March 08, 2018, 06:17:53 am »
I have a Netatmo weather station and was wondering what the idea is to connect it to Vera?

So what is the benefits?

Do I just see the temp etc. in Vera or can I do something cool with it? :)

Bringing the measurements into Vera allows you to include them in your home automation workflows.  Often used for things like controlling heating and cooling, or extractor fans to control humidity...

Here is how I use Weatherunderground data in Vera, via PLEG. Very nice in spring and fall when the overnight lows leave a house chilly but afternoon highs call for cooling. No need to manually change the thermostat mode. Just one example.
