ways to take the outside temperature

I would like to design a circuit to turn on and off the heat in my house, and to record the data, (Time, Temperature, and Heat on or off).
First I have a few questions.
Are there more sophisticated ways to take the outside temperature? Can I get something like the AccuWeather RealFeel Temperature?
Should I make a sophisticated temperature circuit or can my circuit get better temperature data from the internet?
Thank You I appreciate any advice you may have to get me started.

If you are wanting to heat your house would it not be better to measure the temperature insude the house ?

After all the property may be well insulated so that with it being cold outside it may be nice and warm inside. Having an external sensor will trigger the heating when it isn't required and thus costing you money.
