AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: SmartHUB data costs
« Last post by gdicarlo on Today at 05:49:25 PM »
The whole idea of the Access/ smarthub is illogical. It doesn't make sense to send my data to Myacurite to be stored, and then have to download it to my computer. It makes much more sense to have a data logger that connects to the sensor or display that you can download from. I know they sell the one display that saves data every 12 minutes, but they need one that saves it more often. That would also save Acurite a lot of money from not having to run their servers. They really screwed the pooch on this one.

My AcuRite smartHUB Software / Re: End Of Service For Acurite Hub

here are the weewx-related links:

for weewx itself, see the weewx web site.  the drivers folder contains acurite.py, which has everything we know about the acurite protocols over USB (some of that translates to the protocols uses by the acurite bridge / smarthub):

http://weewx.com

the weewx-interceptor is an extension to weewx that will capture traffic from many types of weather stations that are only 'cloud' based, and the acurite bridge / smarthub / access are included.  this driver operates in one of two modes.  as a sniffer, it will simply pick off the data as the smarthub talks to the acurite servers.  as a listener, it will pretend to be an acurite server.  the readme has details about how to do all kinds of different network configurations.  see the Acurite Bridge comments at the beginning, then the AcuriteBridge class in the code for the actual implementation:

https://github.com/matthewwall/weewx-interceptor

the weewx-sdr is an extension to weewx that will get data from SDR USB dongles using rtl_433 and rtl-sdr.  the readme has complete details about how to capture data from acurite hardware and from many other types of hardware.

https://github.com/matthewwall/weewx-sdr

it is all GPL3.  many thanks to all of those who have contributed.  isn't is nice to have options?

Weather Web Site Help / Having problems with SSL? Try this...
« Last post by W3DRM on Today at 03:34:12 PM »
I am in the process of moving one of my websites to another hosting service (1and1.com). While doing this I decided to activate the FREE SSL certificate they offer. I was having issues with the website automatically initializing in the secured mode. While troubleshooting, I discovered a website that makes this process much easier. That site is as follows:
NOTE: You may have have to wade through some CAPTCHA screens but it is well worth that inconvenience. Just follow the instructions and enter in your website address (i.e., https://yoursite.com) and hit ENTER to start the tests. You will go into a queue for the service but I haven't seen it over 3 or 4 ahead of me so the wait was only a few seconds each time.

Also, when entering your website to start the test, be certain to enter in the url without the "www.". For some reason if you enter the full url, the results can be different. Perhaps it was just my website but there was a difference in the results.

The resulting report gives you details on what is causing the non-padlock condition, including a description of the issue along with a line # of the offending code. They also give you hints on how to set-up your .htaccess file so it forces the SSL session. You'll see something like the following:

Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} yourwebsite\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourwebsite.com/$1 [R,L]

This is for Linux based hosting. The process will be different for Windows based hosting.

EDIT: Here is a link from the 1and1.com website that has more detail about mixed content on ssl secured websites:

Somehow, I don't think I'm looking forward to Summer, but who knows.

snowing here. Had freezing rain earlier.

Road are ok. But the kid was heading back to Fargo. Spun out. Crossed traffic. Missed a wall.
Came home. All OK.

Great information, thanks so much. I think I'll just put together my own smart hub equivalent. I'm only using temp sensors to keep track temps at a a couple of my equipment cabinets.

What I do not like about the Vvue, is that the vane is obstructed by the mast pole in a certain direction wich make it jiggle a bit.

I would have place the vane on top and the cup below.

Thinking about this a bit more, I wouldn't be surprised if the Spectre/Meltdown security mess played a role here, too.

One of the ways to mitigate this CPU vulnerability involves turning off predictive instruction pre-fetching. A machine, or a virtualization, might suddenly lose as much as 40% of capacity as the patch is applied. More hardware is then needed to get the same job done, and so plenty of pain to spread around.
