The weather is constantly changing, and it's important to prepare for all of the possible conditions that come with spring, such as higher temperatures, thunderstorms, and pollen. We've put together this list of the top Ambient Weather products to help you stay safe and comfortable during the changing seasons. Whether you're looking for a weather station to keep track of the temperature and precipitation in your area, or a lightning sensor to keep you informed during a storm, we've got you covered. Take a look at our top picks and get ready for whatever spring throws your way!
Ambient Weather WH31SM® Soil Moisture Sensor
Spring is the perfect time to start prepping your garden for the growing season, and the Ambient Weather WH31SM Soil Moisture Sensor can help you take your garden to the next level. This sensor helps you track the moisture levels in your soil so you can adjust your watering schedule accordingly. It's also great for monitoring irrigation systems, and it's easy to use - just insert it into the ground, and it transmits the moisture content data once per 72 seconds to the display console and our cloud service Ambient Weather Network (AWN). Remotely monitor your sensors from the AWN app or Ambient Weather WH31SM® Soil Moisture Sensor.
Ambient Weather WH31L® Lightning Detector
The high humidity, combined with warm temperatures, is the perfect environment for thunderstorms. If you're looking to stay safe from lightning storms, make sure that your home has an Ambient Weather WH31L Lightning Detector.
The WH31L Lightning detector is an add-on sensor that connects to either an Ambient Weather WS-2000 or WS-5000 weather station. The sensor detects lightning strikes and transmits this information once every 79 seconds to the display console and our cloud service, Ambient Weather Network (AWN). The sensor has three settings to adjust the sensitivity for possible interference.
Personal lightning detectors operate by detecting the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) emitted by a lightning strike. By measuring the strength of the detected EMP, the device can then estimate the distance from the detected strike. Through the application of electronics and software, personal lightning detectors such as the WH31L identify storm activity within a 25-mile range(40 km) of your location.
Remotely monitor your sensors from the AWN app or desktop version and set alerts when certain conditions are met.

Ambient Weather AQIN® Air Quality Particulate Monitor
Arid weather can loosen more dust, pollen, and other particulate matter into the air during the spring and summer months. Airborne particulate matter (PM) is a mixture of pollutants that vary in shape, size, and chemical composition.
Those with a diameter of 10 microns or less (PM10) are inhalable into the lungs, and fine particulate matter is defined as particles that are 2.5 microns or less in diameter (PM2.5). Emissions from combustion (cars, fireplaces, etc.) produce much of the PM2.5 pollution found in outdoor air, while PM10 are larger particles and can include dust, pollen, and fragments of bacteria.
The Ambient Weather AQIN Air Quality Particulate Monitor is an air quality monitor that measures indoor PM2.5, PM10, and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) concentration levels. Use alongside a compatible Ambient Weather Station and ssend data to Ambient Weather Network (AWN), where you can monitor your air quality, and set alerts. This sensor is for indoor use ONLY and offers no protection from water.
The Ambient Weather PM25IN® Wireless Indoor Particulate Monitor is also another great choice if you want to measure just PM2.5. This indoor sensor also easily connects to your Ambient Weather Station and sends data to Ambient Weather Network (AWN). The outdoor version of this air quality monitor is the Ambient Weather PM25® Wireless Outdoor Particulate Monitor.

Ambient Weather WH31LA® Leak Detector
Higher demand for water during warmer months can strain pipes and plumbing systems. The Ambient Weather WH31LA detects even the most minor water leaks before they turn into a costly and time-consuming water damage disaster. With its loud alarm, you'll be alerted to any potential problems before they become a bigger issue.
Place the sensor on the floor to check for water every 3 seconds, and when a leak is detected, a loud 90 dB alarm sounds. Connect it to a WS-2000 or WS-5000, and the leak detection will send an alert to the console and Ambient Weather Network (AWN) for instant email, text, or IFTTT triggered event. Add up to four leak detectors to your Ambient Weather WS-2000 and WS-5000 stations.

Ambient Weather WH31E® Wireless Temperature & Humidity Sensor
With warmer weather approaching, it's important to keep track of the humidity levels in your area. The Ambient Weather WH31E is a great option for doing just that, as it wirelessly monitors both temperature and humidity levels. This sensor is easy to set up and can be placed almost anywhere, making it a perfect addition to any weather station setup.
The WH31E Wireless Temperature & Humidity Sensor monitors temperature and humidity in up to 8 remote locations using channel dip switches. Place the sensor in an area of concern and view your measurements in real-time on the LCD display or our Ambient Weather Network via one of our compatible weather stations. The WH31E sensor can be used as a stand-alone, but it is not recommended as you will lose the capability to monitor conditions and receive alerts remotely. When used with the Ambient Weather Network you can set alerts for changing conditions, and have the sensor talk to other IFTTT smart home devices, so you can do things like close blinds or turn down your thermostat when it's too hot.

Ambient Weather WH31PF® Wireless Waterproof Floating Pool and Spa Thermometer
As you begin to open your pools, spas, or hot tubs, the Ambient Weather WH31PF Waterproof Floating Pool and Spa Thermometer can help you keep an eye on the water temperature. The WH31PF is waterproof, wireless, and floats on the water's surface. The sensor communicates with many Ambient Weather Stations (WS-1550-IP, WS-2000, WS-2902B, WS-2902C, WS-3000, WS-5000) via 915 MHz. When used with one of the above-connected weather stations, the WH31PF data can be monitored on Ambient Weather Network (AWN), where you can set up text/email alerts for different conditions.
If you use a pool or spa cover, we suggest ordering the WH31P® Water Proof Probe Temperature Sensor instead.
