May not work with those sensors, but.. Many of the weather stations can be wirelessly received with an rtlsdr ( they cost about $20). The program a lot of people use to translate is rtl_433. It has both Windows and Linux versions. You need to know the frequency the wx station transmits on and there is also an interface program, all of which are freeware.
