How the heck do you turn on IFTTT Triggers?  I see Applets but don't see any way to enable triggers. (ie for loss of signal)

Steve -- I got the unit wired to the 120 VAC to 3VDC converter and t is working perfectly!  It will be nice not to have to change batteries.  While in the unit, I also connected a 12" piece of 14 gauge stranded wire to the antenna spring and have it exiting out of the weather head at the bottom.  This increased signal strength considerably.

Uh, that would be top (#4) on the PRICE list (wink,wink)?

Jachym's Meteotemplate and Ken True's Saratoga templates are totally separate and different.  They however get their weather station data from mostly the same weather program, i.e. Cumulus, Weather Display, etc.  so you can use both of them.

Looks like you've made an attempt at getting the Saratoga working but some files missing.

Suggest you pick one to start with and get it going.  Then from that experience you can add the other.  Meteotemplate will be slightly more involved as it uses a MySQL data base that will require setting up to get all the full features. 

For the Saratoga template print out the instructions from the download page and follow each step completely.  Ask here if you run into a problem or don't quite understand.

What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: Cell weather stations

I noticed a similar RainWise station is about twice the cost as Davis.  Is it worth it?
Waaay back when I was shopping PWS's, RW and Davis were my final two. The deal breaker for me was the VP2 is aspirated, the RW is not, although they make very nice PWS's.
There's a few of us VP2 owners that even use RW's stand alone tipper.

The current RTL_433 driver with a SDR should work.

Nope -

Guessing modulation: No clue...
Guessing modulation: Single pulse detected. Probably Frequency Shift Keying or just noise...

I'm capturing data from Atlas with rtl_433 and have the 10 second WU updates, might be able to work it out for at least the basic info.

Why doesn't Acurite release this information?

Probably for several reasons. They are so tight lipped that we will never know what they are thinking.
- They just want you to use the product as they designed it, nothing more
- They don't care about the hobbyist enthusiast
- They don't want to have to support the API to outsiders
- They want to be able to change the API as they see fit without repercussions
- They want to control the product to sunset and ensure obsolescence as they did with the old Hub as they see fit

I'm probably going to draw criticism for this post. So what. That is how I feel and it isn't to intended to product bash.

It is rather cynical.

More simply put, there is far more business risk in doing so than not.  Even if there is no risk, the cost to curate is prohibitive.

I am wondering if there is someone who wouldn't mind teaching me via TeamViewer this weekend on putting my weather website together? I like what I believe is what you call the meteotemplate. I am not sure if the saratoga template and this other template work together or what. I am really not tech savy. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Need this Rex block to go away. Three weeks ago we were consistently in the 100's, this month, pretty much living in the low 70's.
