I tried calling them yesterday, on hold the first time about 10 minutes, got tired and hung up. Called back, left them my call back number and never heard back. Good luck if you try calling. My suggestion.....call first thing in the morning. Let us know how it goes.

NR runs well even on a Raspberry Pi - can't be that much of a resource hog. 8-)

Nodered uses Node.js.  Absolute resource hog in Windows.  I'd look at Python.  Lots of weather stuff already written in it. Easily extensible.

Weather Web Cams / Ring work as a cam?
« Last post by wrz0170 on Today at 01:25:29 PM »
Curious if something like Ring security camera would work as a weather cam?  Double duty?

I have their video doorbell and looking to get their video/spot spotlight cam for my backyard.

Or do the cams have to some type of webcam?

Thanks!

Im thinking of calling or emailing as I spent 10$ on shipping to get it by 2/19

If you try contacting Acurite please let us know how that turns out.

Don't overlook Node Red at https://nodered.org/ (watch the 5-min video, plus plenty more on Youtube).

It may not be quite what you had in mind but absolutely worth exploring. It's powerful, runs on most platforms including Windows and, dare I say, even a little fun. Serial port reads can be done with a single node.

You'll probably need to learn some Javascript if you don't use it already, especially to work with the function node, but JS is probably the #1 scripting (and much more) language that anyone should learn today.

Dale, this might help you. It uses VB (VBscript)

At first VB looks difficult but it is quite easy once you get the hang of it.
Use Notepad++ as the editor and set the Style Configurator to VB/VBS under Settings

I just went back to 4.02 version. The v5.04 seemed pretty sketchy on mine and everyone else's sites.
