I am looking for a way to get the temperature outside at my house from an internet source. I do not have a temp sensor outside and would like to be able to pull it from Weather underground or somewhere via a virtual temp sensor to use in rules. Has anyone got a good way of doing this?
There are apps for getting info from a PWS (Personal weather station) like
Guys, I have completely recoded the Weather Underground driver
This is the basic one with no connection to any PWS
You will though, need the new api key, which unfortunately, is only available if you push PWS data to WU
New driver is here:
I'm currently working on my Weewx & WU driver and hope to have that finished soon.
But I'm not aware on one where you can get info from Weather Underground without having a PWS of your own which is contributing to WU as they now require that to get an access key for their API.
Take a look at this community driver
UPDATED 4.0: added WU mappings and some forecast data for next day.
UPDATED 3.5: added temperature, pressure and humidity capabilities.
UPDATED 3.0: updated with code contribution from
@jebbett to use some cool weather icons.
UPDATED 2.5: added image icon directly for weather condition for use on dashboard.
UPDATED 2: more granular lux calculation based on time of day and weather condition code.
UPDATED: from weather underground to apixu weather aboveground.
here is the new weather driver …
You can use it without your own PWS.
You can also simply add a virtual device using the built-in OpenWeatherMap driver. No custom code required for basic weather data.
didnt see it thank you sir
need link to the device code.. getting 404 thanks
The options keep coming, you can also use the Hubigraph weather tile that hooks into open weather map.
Hubigraphs V3.0 Release
8/8 - Version 3.0 - Weather Tile. So, I have spent the past few creating something new for my wife. The WEATHER TILE. Yes, before anyone says anything, there is not a graph involved yet. My wife has already submitted multiple request for features. But this initial version has the following features and caveats.
The weather tile will AUTOMATICALLY resize according to the size of the tile.
Background and font color selection.
You can also look at an EcoWitt pws like I have, which there is a driver for on the community, plus you can use it to feed the Hubigraph weather tile.
LAN communication only, no cloud/weather service needed.
One Hubitat device for each Ecowitt sensor for easy dashboard tiles and RM rules handling.
On-the-fly Imperial <-> Metric conversion.
HTML templates, which allows endless tiles customization, including displaying multiple attributes with dynamic weather icons in a single tile.
What differentiate this from other implementations is the ability to dynamically create child devices, one for every sensor con…
