Finally, a Netatmo Module can be used as a Pool Thermometer. We modify an original Netatmo Module to make it Pool-ready. This allows Your Pool to be seamlessly integrated into Your smart Netatmo Weather station or Smart Home. Amazon Alexa can also now provide Information about the current Water Temperature of Your Swimming pool.
“Alexa, ask Netatmo: What’s the Temperature in the Pool?”
In order for this to be possible, the Netatmo Board is also shed inside the absolutely waterproof case with a Special-electro casting mass. This improves Thermal Conductivity And Can exclude Condensation On the Board. The Temperature Sensor is located about 170 mm below the Water surface. As a result, the Netatmo Module provides exact Values of water Temperature.
Advantages of this smart Pool Thermometer
- Battery-powered Module. As a Result, no power Outlet is necessary on Site. We also equip Your Pool Thermometer with an optional Power Supply via AA Batteries. As a Result, the Thermometer can be operated for an Extremely long time without changing Batteries.
- Query the Water Temperature via Smartphone or Tablet via WLan. This requires Netatmo’S Base station. This can be purchased separately in our Shop.
- Integration Into the Netatmo Weather Station.
- The Water Temperature can also be published on your own Website if Desired. For this purpose, there are Plugins from WordPress. This Feature is interesting for public Institutions who want to provide Their Visitors with information about the current Water Temperature on Site.
- Integration Into your own Home Automation.
- Exact Readings. The Temperature Sensor is located at a Depth of about 17 cm. The Diving Unit has been so isolated by us that the Sun Radiation on hot Days has little Influence on the Readings.
Use for WLan Pool Thermometer
WLan Pool Thermometer for Home Control
This WLan Thermometer can be integrated into its Home automation in a variety of Ways. For the open source program OpenHab 2 there are already ready “bindings” for Netatmo. As our wlan pool thermometer is a modification of the Netatmo thermometer you can also integrate the temperature in your control. For example, a pool heater can be activated if required. Netatmo modules can also be integrated in Homematic and other systems. Also the integration into the own website is possible thanks to ready plugins for for example WordPress or Joomla.

Prerequisites for The operation of the WLan Pool Thermometer
- You must own the Netatmo Base Station to operate this Pool Thermometer. The Base Station is not Part of this Offer.
- To use Amazon Alexa with this Product, You must have a suitable Device (E.g. Amazon Echo Dot or Amazon Echo).
- This Thermometer is not suitable for Use at Water Temperatures above 40 Degrees Celsius. We haven’t been able to test The Thermometer yet hot Tubs or Hot Tubs.
- Antenna Range: Our Modification of the original Netatmo Inner Module does not change the Radio Range. In our Test, the Base Station was placed in a closed Room (Brick Construction) behind a locked window with direct Visual Contact To the Thermometer. The Pool Thermometer and the original Netatmo Inner module were able to establish stable Connections to the Base Station up to 25 m. Keep in mind that any additional Wall and source Of Interference (E.g. Routers, Metal Objects, etc.) reduce the Range. If the Antenna of the Pool Thermometer (about 150 mm above the surface of the water) is below the Edge of the Pool, this can also reduce the Range. We therefore recommend that you test a Netatmo Inner module (if any) at the desired Site (must not get wet) before purchasing,
