AmbientWeather.net Hosting Service for ObserverIP Series WS-0800-IP, WS-0900-IP, WS-1200-IP, WS-1400-IP

Ambient Weather has developed a hosting service that supports all of your sensors (indoor and outdoor), as well as email and text alerts.



It is currently in a beta testing phase. You are welcome to participate in the beta testing.  You will need to upgrade your firmware to Version 4.0.0 here:

http://www.ambientweather.com/observerip.html



Next, visit:

https://dashboard.ambientweather.net/dashboard

and create an account, and enter the Mac address found on the ObserverIP Weather Network panel.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

1. How do I report a  bug?

To report a bug, visit:

http://www.ambientweather.com/bugreport.html

2. How long will the beta test period last?

We can not give you a fixed date, but we expect the beta test to last a few months.

3. Is there an app I can download to my mobile device?

Since the website is mobile friendly and responsive, an app is not required. Just open any browser and visit:

https://dashboard.ambientweather.net/dashboard

Next, add a shortcut on your home screen.

4. Will AmbientWeather.net support IFTTT and Alexa?

Not at the moment, but we are planning integration into these types of devices.

Thanks for this.  You mention this "supports all your sensors".  Does this now mean it will support additional external sensors other than the primary all in one unit (when thinking about the WS-1400-IP). 

Would really like to have an additional outdoor temp sensor.

No, it does not. The station is currently limited by the included sensors. However, you can certainly move the indoor thermometer/hygrometer/barometer outside and rename it from the dashboard.

Regards,

Ed

Ed,

If I upgrade to 4.0 beta, will I no longer be able to submit my WS-1400-ip weather station data to wunderground or will the data be transmitted to both ambientweather.net and wunderground?

Thank you.

And does the 4.0 beta include the improvements to the firmware that were made in 3.1.8?  Thank you!

I just installed the 4.0 beta firmware on both my WS-1001 and WS-0900.

So far working good without any issues.

Thanks!

I found that if I let it using dhcp as a default option after reset, it can connect to wunderground fine; but once I change it to a static ip address, which I used to do with version 3.1.8 and earlier, then reboot, it would not connect to wunderground.

However, in both cases, it can send data to ambient weather dashboard fine.

So now I stick with dhcp until the bug has been solved.
