Weather monitor for obs

Hi obs owners,
I'm considering a weather monitor so it can close up my obs in poor weather.
Does anyone have experience with SkyAlert? http://interactiveastronomy.com/skyalertindex.html

I'm also thinking about Boltwood, but it's very expensive and costs more than twice as much as the SkyAlert.

Plus I've come across the much cheaper AAG Cloudwatcher.

If anyone has one, I'd like to know your thoughts as it doesn't appear as well integrated or advanced as the more expensive options. If it closes up when it rains, then it might be all I need...
Thanks.
