Ambient Weather Station / WS-1002-WIFI display, software
« Last post by swbouton on Today at 06:24:36 PM »
Hello.  I recently bought an Ambient Weather WS-1002-WIFI.   

I'm concerned about the display being on 24/7.  Is there someway to turn it off?

Has anyone come up with better software than EasyweatherIP 3.1?

Thank you.

Instead of just 'static' stereo images, how about a pair of video cameras collecting 'dynamic' 3D stereo images?

I definitely see a 50Hz oscillation there in the spectrum, especially on the magenta E-Field channel, and to some extent on the green H-Filed channel. Is your system grounded at the control board?

No not grounded yet. Need to choose a permanent location yet, which may be near the Hot water system. Not sure if using a water pipe would work as the main feed to the house is high pressure poly pipe.

Is roof iron that is ultimately connected to posts bolted to concrete considered a valid ground?
(As in the structure the E-Field is bolted to. Or should I ground that structure with a stake).?

......running a wire from the grounding lug on the controller.......

Might need a pointer on where to ground the Blue System.

Is your H-field antenna shielded in any way?

Wasn't sure what to do there.
The Mini guide shows both shields shorted together near the ends, but not connected in the Moebius Loop example.
Other examples I saw only had the shield shorted at the loop to complete the circuit, but one end of the shield connected to gnd.

That's something I'd like a bit more info on.

Is your network and coax cables from the controller to the antennas shielded?

RG6 to the E-Field & Foil shielded with drain Cat5 to the H-Field.
Just a regular Cat5e back to the switch.

Cheers Phil, the above test came back clean, so i am running one on one of the other partitions and its stopped here atm

Stage 4: Looking for bad clusters in user file data ...
Progress: 42 of 236784 done; Stage:  0%; Total:  0%; ETA:  19:18:46 ...

So looks like theres the issue(s) I will leave it over night in the hope that it will kick itself and repair/patch over the bad sector(s)
Then i will used it as a backup drive like i did with the previous drive that failed, thats still going strong, as long as ya dont
use them as ya C:\ drive they run ok :)

I have managed to copy all files now to another drive ready to be copied to the new one tomorrow, the only issues with these
large drives, i.e. 1TB you end up with a lot more files in one place so it makes copying/moving files and bloody long job lol

Sounds like the drive is on the way out.
I'd be trying to et a clone or image off it ASAP.

Lost one myself a month back; knew it was going, but left it that bit too long to for life to be easy with a simple clone & swap.

Also testdisk is worth a look. Particularly for creating an image file of the entire drive that can be interrogated later.

Maybe the reason why the SHT 31 doesn't reach to 100% often is due to a small sensor chip?

Just a wee update, when i said i ran that scan, I ran it again, well, still running actually, but
this time its taking ages, i just checked the Event Viewer and i found this event, twice now

The device, \Device\Harddisk2\DR10, has a bad block.

So on that note, when the scan finally finished, it should tell me the drive is creamed...

This is the scan so far,

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> chkdsk E: /f /r
The type of the file system is NTFS.

Stage 1: Examining basic file system structure ...
  459264 file records processed.
File verification completed.
  42283 large file records processed.
  0 bad file records processed.

Stage 2: Examining file name linkage ...
  569098 index entries processed.
Index verification completed.
  0 unindexed files scanned.
  0 unindexed files recovered to lost and found.

Stage 3: Examining security descriptors ...
Security descriptor verification completed.
  54918 data files processed.
CHKDSK is verifying Usn Journal...
  35418432 USN bytes processed.
Usn Journal verification completed.

Stage 4: Looking for bad clusters in user file data ...
  459248 files processed.
File data verification completed.

Stage 5: Looking for bad, free clusters ...
Progress: 85808351 of 118686694 done; Stage: 72%; Total: 76%; ETA:   1:16:47 ..

ps E: is only half the drive, the other partitions have come back clean though
Thankfully i have managed to grab all the data needed from the other partitions
Once E is finished with the scan i will grab windows and it will e put onto the new drive tomorrow
unless a bad sector stops me that is :/

And, How Do You Guys Know This?   :twisted:
This happens to me sometimes. I was down yesterday afternoon ...
I can attest to the Pi's reliability. ...then reboot.  But I've only done that maybe 2-3 times since I started.
Same here.  ...the weather radio will shut off automatically at times.  I've never had a problem with my Pi's feed.

...probably because you check your feeds frequently! 

YAY  =D>

My immediate thought those without ideal location for shield. IE small backyard this may work better than reporting overly warm temperatures low airflow backyard.

basically what i said....

Many many moons ago, I experimented with making live crossed-eye stereographs with 2 Axis 2100 network cameras. I thought maybe I had posted about it here somewhere, but I can't find it.

I must come by this interest honestly, as I still have my grandparents' Kodak Stereo camera.

Anyway, I was out in the Think Tank watching the clouds a few days ago and got to thinking that seeing clouds in stereo might be pretty cool.

So, I'm trying to figure out how long of a baseline between cameras to use, and whether I came do a proof-of-concept with a DSLR and running between the 2 shooting positions.

Of course, as soon as I decided to try it, we've had clear skies. :(
