WS 1001 (maplin clone) extra display?
« on: April 08, 2018, 04:38:49 AM »
Hi all, is it possible to connect an extra display to these weather stations?
I would like a screen upstairs and downstairs. TIA

I took a (very) indirect path to this in that I connected a Raspberry Pi running WeeWx up to the weather station and then used a web browser to look at the WeeWx display output.
The clone I have (of the Ambient HP1000 which is the same thing as far as I know) doesn't have the ability to drive another screen directly.

This a solution similar to the one that Aussie Susan suggested https://claydonsweather.org.uk
