Before ordering any of this, I spent a lot of time reading Amazon reviews, researching the help videos on the Netatmo website, and watching a few YouTube videos. In retrospect, all this preparation and a little common sense was essential to my successful installation. The printed materials that come in the boxes with the various components are charmingly minimalist, essentially worthless and often downright misleading. The app helps a little but is totally unintuitive to navigate. The help videos on the Netatmo website are the most helpful but are buried deep and hard to find. In short, Netatmo has given very short shrift to usability testing in every corner of their enterprise.
While my 4-part installation worked flawlessly and on the first attempt at every step, each one of those steps made me feel like I was fumbling in the dark. First, Netatmo’s terminology is quite confusing. With the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, I now know that my “Weather Station” consists of a combination of my account and all the climate sensors associated with it. The various sensor components are referred to as “modules”. The only essential module to set up a weather station is the “big module” sometimes (and more appropriately) referred to as the “indoor module”. It stays indoors, connects to your household electricity and WIFI, and one or more mobile devices via Bluetooth. It monitors temperature, humidity, CO2 and noise levels. While you can buy this module by itself, the standard starter kit also comes with a “small module” aka “outdoor module”. It requires outdoor dry, shade, monitors only temperature and humidity and communicates with the indoor module via some kind of undisclosed radio frequency.
Step 1. Plug the “big module” into electricity. I used the short USB cable that came in the box and plugged up with a combo USB/115V wall outlet. You must touch and hold the top of the big module until it flashes blue. It downloaded a rather slow firmware update and then proceeded ask me to identify what “accessory” I wanted to add. Netatmo was the only available option so I selected it. Went fine. I had already installed the app on my iPhone. They (my iPhone and the BigOne) mated right away. BigOne got the WIFI info from my phone (with my permission) and all is well. But not quite. I’m pretty confused at this point about the difference between my weather station (which, upon prompting) I gave the name of my street and BigOne which is now standing apparently lifeless on my kitchen counter.
Step 2. Despite this uncertainty, I forged ahead and put the batteries in the “small module”. There were marks on this indicating which way the batteries should be inserted but, even through a magnifying glass, they looked identical to me. A little trial and error resulted in the flashing green light on the base of this module. Now you must go through the unintuitive process of touching the top of the big module, selecting the accessory Netatmo in the app and THEN adding the outdoor module. The module to be added must be positioned right next to the indoor module for this to work. You can only move it to its final resting place after it has paired with the big module/indoor module. At this point, I had not figured out how to tell if the outdoor module was actually online. The way you do this is to open the app, touch the three bars in the upper left-hand corner, select Settings, select the name you gave your weather station. You will get a scrollable screen with all your sensors which provides, radio signal strength, battery status, serial number and firmware version. This module is approximately 35 feet from the indoor module and is separated by an exterior brick wall and four interior walls. RF signal strength is reported as 3 of 5 bars. Over the last 24 hours, this module has reported in 288 times at intervals ranging from 51 seconds to 7:34 minutes with an average of exactly 5 minutes.
Step 3. Take the wind gauge apart by removing four screws on the bottom and pull out the plastic tab that keeps the batteries from making contact. Something is supposed to flash green at this point, but I never saw it. Then you touch the top of the big module until you get the blue flash, select the Netatmo accessory, and pair up the anemometer which must be within a few inches from the mothership. Screw the wind module back together. Be careful to position the North arrow on the bottom pointed in the same direction as the one on the top of the module. Take the wind module to its final, functional resting place removing the finger guard label just before hoisting the sensor out of reach. I am a little concerned that a sensor intended to live in the wild can be damaged by being touched with your fingertips, but time will tell. Mine is atop a 10’ PVC pipe attached to my fence which is 61’ from the back of my house. The indoor module is a further 21’ inside the house with one frame and one brick wall (both with many glass openings) between it and the back yard. I get only one bar of radio signal strength on that module. So much for the claimed 100 meter range. In its first 15 hours, its reporting interval has ranged from less than one minute to more than 30. The average was 5:25. Dropped signal? Something else? Who knows? The longest intervals (16:40 and 30:52) happened between 4 and 5 in the morning when I would have expected RF interference to be low.
Step 4. Take the rain gauge apart by twisting the top and bottom in opposite directions. Remove the plastic tab which prevents the batteries from making contact. Look for but never see the green flash. Put the thing back together. This was tough. If there are any markings showing how things should be aligned, I never saw them. It took 15 minutes of trial and error to get the thing put back together. Very frustrating. The drill is then the same as before: Touch indoor sensor top to get blue flash, select Netatmo accessory, put new sensor right next to big module and pair them. Put newly paired sensor outdoors in desired location. In my case this is less than 10’ from the mothership with a brick wall in between. I am getting 2 of 5 RF signal strength bars. There has been no rain since I put it up and it has registered none. During the nearly 14 hours that this sensor has been in service, it has reported in 168 times at intervals ranging from 1:18 to 5:20 with an average of four minutes and 58 seconds.
I find both the iOS and Web apps to be maddingly unintuitive. On the iOS app, the bottom third of the screen is occupied by the four indoor sensor current values. One swipe left on this panel gets you a screen where you can pair a new indoor module without going to settings. A further left swipe gets you a map showing your own location. Both of these screens are useless to me. The middle of the screen displays a five-day weather forecast from an unknown source. Again, useless to me. Just above that five-day forecast are four VERY TINY icons—car, thermometer, water droplet, and blow. The car icon represents Air Quality. If your weather station is not located in a major metropolitan area, this will forever show “Air quality data is not available”. To get air quality data you must “move” your weather station to a nearby major metro area in settings. Pretty stupid. The app should “know” the nearest EPA air quality reporting station. Even worse, I made this change and it still did not work. These icons are far too tiny and close together to actually put your finger on but this panel is swipeable and swiping right or left advances you through them. The thermometer gets you current measurements from the outside sensor. The water droplet shows you current rainfall information and the blow icon takes you to wind speed and direction.
The Web app looks nothing like the iOS app but is equally unintuitive. The only think I have found it useful for is downloading the data into excel files. To do this, you must click on Manage My Station in the upper right-hand corner. Scroll the resulting popup window all the way to the bottom and select Download your station data as a CSV/XLS file. Then select which sensor, measurement frequency, what measurements, file format, beginning and ending date and time before pressing download. This works well in my limited experience once you find it.
Update 8/1/19. This stuff just works! The web app is way better than the iPhone version if you want to know something useful like how much rain you have had in the last seven days. The hardware is solid. I am a little concerned about the accuracy of the wind and CO2 sensors but temps square with the NWS as do rainfall rates and amounts. It's only been two months for me but I am happy now. Customer support via email has been excellent.
Update 8/28/19 the bad news is that my rain gauge—at age 164 days—is dead. I reached out to Netatmo support and got a response in minutes. They asked for my proof of purchase and photos of both the inside and outside of the unit which I provided. The next morning I had a promo code in my inbox which allowed me to order a replacement from their site for free. No shipping charge and no need to return the dead unit. This is all about as good as it gets.

Zuerst lief alles prima. Das Aussenmodul hat sich direkt verbunden und auch von unserem Balkon aus die Temperatur nach innen gefunkt.
Nach rund einem halben Jahr (im Sommer) waren die Batterien leer. Ausgetauscht. Kein Problem.
Einige Monate später waren die Batterien wieder leer. Diesmal im Spätherbst bei kalten Temperaturen.
Wieder ausgetauscht. Nach 4 Tagen erneut leer. Wieder ausgetauscht. Keine Verbindung mehr.
Anschließend habe ich tagelang versucht, das Modul zu verbinden. Aufwärmen lassen. Trocknen lassen. Alles resettet. Keine Chance. Keine Verbindung mehr möglich. Eine Recherche im Internet zeigt: Das ist ein Standardproblem von Netatmo, was offensichtlich viele Nutzer haben, wenn sie die Batterien des kalten Moduls im Innenraum tauschen.
Diagnose: Außenmodul defekt, vermutlich wegen Kondensfeuchtigkeit.
Also neues Modul bei Conrad-Elektronik gekauft. Dann Zuhause festgestellt: Es handelt sich um ein INNENmodul, was genauso aussieht wie das Außenmodul, aber andere Funktionen hat. Super.
Also noch ein Modul gekauft, diesmal ein Ersatz-Außenmodul. Und: Wieder Verbindungsprobleme ohne Ende. Die Station erkennt das Modul zunächst (genauer: im 10.ten Anlauf mit unendlich viel Geduld und neu probieren, neu probieren, neu probieren, ...) - aber dann (in 3 Metern Abstand) kommt keine Verbindung mehr zustande. Das Portal zeigt ein Fragezeichen und keinen Batteriestand.
ICH BIN ES SO LEID! Der ganze Müll ist vollkommen unausgegoren und müsste vom Hersteller komplett überarbeitet werden.
So kann man das nicht gebrauchen.
Das Plastik wird draußen brüchig. Das kann eigentlich nicht der Sinn sein.
Nach Kontaktaufnahme mit dem fremden Admin per email stellte sich heraus, dass die Seriennummer unserer beider Basisstationen völlig identisch sind! Netatmo ist alleine aus Sicherheits Aspekten heraus ein NO GO !!!
Die Funktionen gefallen mir, aber wenn der Kram nicht mal ein Jahr schafft, dann ist das ist rausgeworfenes Geld.
