sure thing. hadnt expect this driver to become as popular as it has … once it did putting this up on github was the right thing to do.
I am probably missing something but how do we trigger automation on events with this device driver? I can't find any way to do it in RM.
so in RM you cant select the pressure or temperature to trigger an action?
I actually didn't look for those. I needed wind speed.
ahh … dont think RM supports those attributes.
if you want me to i can always add turning on/off a switch based on certain wind speed value?
Thanks, but I ended up using this:
cool. is weather underground still providing free API access to their weather data? thought that was only going to be available with paid plans.
this was the primary reason why i went to the trouble of finding the apixu source and putting this driver together:
guess you are OK till the end of this year.
Weather Switch can be used with any weather driver, assuming it produces the correct attributes.
got it … the snippet shown with the link was misleading
Does your weather DH have the alerts to support @Cobra new alert weather trigger in Message Central?
sorry not familiar with message central functionality.
No worries. Does your weather device capture weather alerts?
heres the data it uses … think most if not all of those fields are available from the driver:
if there is something available from the api but not exposed in the driver please let me know and i will include it.
Alas the apixu does not support severe weather or alerts. No worries I can have (2) weather devices. One for lux (your device) and the other for weather alerts.
how are you getting weather alerts … do you have a PWS?
Using @cobra WU driver. I must admit that I am debating about getting a PWS though as they are now somewhat affordable.
do you subscribe to a paid WU service so the driver can get the alerts data with your WU key?
I am one of the lucky grandfathered api keys. So no I don’t pay but do get alerts.
nice! for the rest of use there is always apixu and view thru the window.
