Ambient Weather Device


#24

This is great!

one issue - nothing seems to be mapped to illuminance, so I can’t use it as an illuminance sensor in RM. other drivers seem to map the solar radiation to the illuminance value.


#25

Fixed and uploaded to Github


#26

One more upload. Added debug logging on/off. Confirmed that auto polling works.


#27

Working good, great job!


#28

agreed! now i don’t have to rely on weather underground.


#29

Deleted and Reinstalled and all is working well.. Thanks


#30

Thank you so much. This is finally working for me. I really appreciate the effort.

Would it be possible to add a toggle switch for Celsius and km/hr ? My station also reports indoor temp and humidity from the sensor that provides barometric pressure. Not a critical reading because I have other devices that give that, but it's always nice to have that data for averaging in other apps.


#31

The driver has been working fine, but just started getting this error below.

This is line 61 in the driver
temp = (weather.dewPoint - 35);

#33

I would respond to this but I am not going to because I will probably regret it. This forum sure has a lot of rude people!!!! If you don't like the way we do something or we are not doing it right then show or tell us the right way but you don't have to be rude about it.


#34

That was one of the many reasons I left Vera, because of a few in the forums, who would ALWAYS respond to any questions you posted because they narcissisticly believe they are brighter than reality, and almost always, rather than actually addressing what you posted they point you to irrelevant directions (especially if you are new and don't even know what they are talking about to begin with), or concerned about being the hall monitor of the forums.

FYI, to those who may fit into the category above.....You can just as easily TAG a developer using the @ (name) as you can criticizing those for not fitting into the proper placement of posts, or if this is to much, just don't respond at all, as the person having the problems is in the exact same spot without the frustrations you added to it.....


#35

You shouldn't quote my post to the developer referencing "I have no clue" when I'm not the one having any issues and my app is working fine, but merely trying to help the person who is having the issues..


#36

People need to think before posting a new thread that can be dealt with in the original thread.


#37

You mean like "thinking before you hit post on who you're intending to quote?" Then adding your slanderous input with it?

FYI, you're not the arbitrator on how those using the platform/forum gets their issues addressed/ resolved, if it bothers you how they do it, ignore the post.


#38

For those interested in this I added the attribute maxdailygust to the device driver.

#39

Indoor humidity please. I need a comparison humidity value for @Cobra 's Super Smart Fan, but don't want to add Ecobee back to my system. Everything's running so nicely now, I'd rather not introduce what I suspect to have been an issue previously.

Makes sense to also add indoor temp and barometric pressure since their on the same sensor unit, but humidity is really what I'm personally after.

Thank you so much for the offer.


#40

Ok I added indoor temp/humidity. As for the indoor pressure I believe is device/software driven so it's not very accurate. Do you still want that ?


#41

I have added.....

  • indoor_temperature : 71.6
  • indoor_humidity : 30
  • indoor_pressure : 27.96
  • weekly_rain_in : 0
  • total_rain_in : 4.42
  • monthly_rain_in : 0
  • hourly_rain_in : 0
  • lastRain : 2019-04-26T16:37:00.000Z

Anything else ?


#42

That gets me exactly what I asked for. Thanks so much. :+1:t2: Appreciate the help.


#43

Here you go.....


#44

I also created a pull request for @thomas.c.howard to merge my edits. Not sure if he will but at least the offer is there.

Glad I can help !
