Other Weather Station Hardware / Re: Additional sensors
« Last post by dupreezd on Today at 11:10:32 AM »
Have a look at the ESP8266.There are plenty of examples and code on the internet. I used a DHT11 connected to the ESP and programmed it with an Arduino. About 20 lines of code IIRC.  The DHT11 is cheap to experiment with. I just wanted to see if it can be done and what was involved.
A small PHP program on my webserver reads the values at specific intervals. Not the best way as the ESP does not go in low standby mode. It is not a concern as mine is not battery powered.

A better way will be push mode where the ESP sends the data, then 'sleep' for a certain time period. That is if you want to run on battery power.

Mine says active, I guess there's still a problem on their end.  But why does it say active, I haven't changed anything?

I have one that says not active.  I did set one of my weather station programs to upload an image to that inactive station, to check if it were my camera.  It returned with errors so something is awry with the camera itself.   it is on their end.

It is a bit "funny" that some of the stations have been on and off line since last week, but no forward progress on the problem.

Meteohub/Meteobridge / Doesn't support acurite very well
« Last post by tygunn on Today at 11:02:03 AM »
I've been using meteobridge to report my Acurite 5in1 station via the USB display console for a while now. I thought my unit was just starting to fail, as I'd get random reports of rain during the day and the barometer didnt come across.

I chalked this up to poor Acurite quality but it looks like I was wrong.

I just started using the Acurite PC connect software and it has zero issues.  Rain is not being reported with no rainfall.  And the barometer works.

I guess the meteobridge software has some bugs in it.

I have three cameras.  Two are bloomsky . of the three, two report images.  One is a bloomsky and the other blooms sky it says on the webcam page that it isn't active. Yet it shows that Bloomsky is sending data.  So I don't know what the problem is, here.  both are associated with stations . the stations are sending data so that is good, but still one wonders what the problem is with their image servers?
