WeatherLink by Davis Instruments / Re: Weatherlink Mobile not updating

With the new weatherlink 2.0 app, will the current data refresh automatically every minute or would I need to "manually" refresh it?

Very nice implementation of Quality Tools Motioning website. I just looked at my stream live.

Your team deserves a lot of credit for this project.

On a side note I've been using Pira CZ silence detector, a previously suggested monitoring tool for about 5 weeks. It looks to be a useful tool.

Thanks

Ed

AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: AcuRite Access??

...My elevation is on "0" - Should this be changed?

that would mean the elevation of the barometer sensor would be 15' to 20' higher than what the address would show. I know that is probably only a hundredth or two on the adjusted pressure
Yes, 10 ft of elevation is equivalent to 0.01 inches of Hg., at least for the altimeter.

Thanks for the clarification. That is good to know.

I admit that I am a novice at this and using this forum to learn before I buy (still waiting for the release and reviews of Atlas Elite before I decide what to buy). That said, it is disappointing that AcuRite does not allow you to configure elevation. 

You can manually configure your elevation.  They just put your elevation as per what your address shows as a starting point.  You can change it manually after that.

If your elevation is listed as "0", that means you're set up for sending station pressure (absolute) rather than adjusted pressure (altimeter) to myAcurite and wunderground.

If you go into your device setup in myAcurite and switch to adjusted pressure, it will reprogram your Access (or SmartHUB) to reflect your elevation (based on your address) and change your pressure to an altimeter reading.
I admit that I am a novice at this and using this forum to learn before I buy (still waiting for the release and reviews of Atlas Elite before I decide what to buy). That said, it is disappointing that AcuRite does not allow you to configure elevation.  When I look up the elevation of my home using the address, it is 833'. I am reasonably sure that is about 10' low even at the street. Then on top of that, my lot has a pretty steep grade up to my house, and I would mount the device on my upper level on a desk, so that would mean the elevation of the barometer sensor would be 15' to 20' higher than what the address would show. I know that is probably only a hundredth or two on the adjusted pressure, but it seems to me like Acurite could make a simple software enhancement to allow you to configure the exact elevation like other brands do.

At this point, I guess my plan would be to find and use an address that would be a closer match to the true elevation of the installed barometer, but I wonder if using an incorrect address would have some other undesirable effect.

Like I said, I am a novice and still learning, so I would be happy to be enlightened by more experienced folks about why it is unnecessary or a bad idea to have a specific configuration option for elevation.

Any guesses whether the Access will be more likely to allow IFTTT integration?  That's something that has been sorely lacking and hasn't appeared to be of interest to AcuRite...

If electric goes out and you lose your internet connection, how does the data get from the weather station to the web site?

Personally I hate to count on 3rd party services for my data. I want to collect my own data, save it and display it as I want. I've been burned a number of times when 3rd party services have shut down or been sold and the service has been discontinued. We already have seen the problems with services like Bloomsky and Weather Underground. Not that I have an issue with WF, just that you never know what will happen 1 or 5 years from now.

Custom Website Templates / Re: Cumulus MX issue
« Last post by mkutche on Today at 07:15:14 PM »
I'm assuming you mean on the wxstatus.php page.  The data for that comes from Cumulus via the CUtags.php
Code: [Select]
$WX['SystemUpTime'] = 'Cannot load Counter Name data because an invalid index '' was read from the registry.';

Cumulus is not providing the <#SystemUpTime> tag correctly.

How do I change it?
