WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues

@rarrowo - what make/model of camera are you using - looks like maybe a Foscam?      Still thinking an image size limit problem for you.

While hosts should respond to ping, it can be filtered and the hosts are still answering on port 21 for ftp.

What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: [Ambient] WS-2000 or WS-8478A
« Last post by galfert on Today at 04:23:41 AM »
I don't think there very many people that can answer your all comparison questions as they would need to have had both. Or someone would have to compare data from nearby models. Or you can ask Ambient some of these unanswered questions.

That said though I can tell you from owning a WS-2000 that I feel it has exceeded my expectations. My CWOP and AWEKAS analysis are nearly good enough for me. I would even say nearly perfect but I'm sure someone would call me out on that claim which I think would be splitting hairs. I'm glad I went with it rather than the WS-8478A. The WS-8478A may be better on paper specs but there are many things I don't like about it compared to the WS-2000. So for me it was never a consideration but maybe for a minute as I discovered these differences.

Cons of the WS-8478A (and Pros of the WS-2000)
  • The WS-8478A doesn't seem to be a popular choice. So there is almost no community support by people with the same hardware. There doesn't seem to be any excitement over this model. Why? Keep reading...
  • No Solar Radiation as you mentioned
  • The display is not as nice as WS-2000. The WS-2000 does have full screen graphs.(not documented yet but new manual due soon will show this)
  • The WS-8478A outdoor sensor array is not as nice looking. The WS-2000 looks slick and modern.
  • The WS-8478A is not able to be connected with other Ambient accessories like the ObserverIP and the WeatherBridge (Meteobridge). This is a big deal I think as without this you are limited to where you can send data easily or even at all as I'm not sure on WeeWx compatibility
  • With the WS-2000 you can add different cheap additional consoles like the WS-1900. Even the Ecowitt GW1000.
  • The WS-2000 will gain even more sensors soon: PM2.5 air quality, soil moisture, lighting and maybe more.

Frankly the WS-2000 sensors are fine. There is too much negative in the WS-8478A to even be a close. If sensor quality really mattered that much to you then you would not be considering any all-in-one design models.

You can't select which sensor data to send to WU. It will only send temp/humidity from the sensor array. But you can see them all at Ambientweather.net.

Extra sensors on the WS-2000 display are shown in one of two ways that you choose. You can either set the display to cycle through all sensors every couple seconds or you can fix it to stay on a particular sensor. You can then if fixed choose to manually press button an see the next one.

Forum Bugs/Suggestions / Re: Like/Thanks Button
« Last post by kobuki on Today at 04:02:11 AM »
I personally don't see much use of the new like feature. It adds unnecessary (de)valuation of member posts. But that's just me.

In any case, would it be possible to make it less prominent? It's very obtrusive, doesn't fit the overall site design at all, IMO. A simple link-style button like the rest of the functions below the posts to the right would fit the experience better, I think. Maybe putting it to the left so it's easier to distinguish and notice, would be sufficient for everyone who wants to use it.

Or maybe the Meteostick is not available in the US, guess it's back to the drawing board.

Oh, just one other weird rendering issue. On WU it's not showing the pressure gradients and changes graphically on the site. Although in the Live data it's correct.

Above pic is new station, below was my old 1400-IP

That pressure issue is what happens when the ObserverIP sends bad data to WU. Bad data occurred while recalibration and putting in settings in like preferred units and such. Whenever I need to recalibrate or after a firmware update/reset the last thing I do is enter in station ID otherwise you get this bad data. For those with a Meteobridge you need to keep the Meteobridge powered off while putting in settings or it too gets bad data. Problem with bad data in WU is that you can't delete it. The good news is that if you wait till the next day then the graph is good again. The bad news is if you ask for a date range of a week then it could be messed up if it includes a day with bad data.

Thank you, I was curious if the MB pro, or meteostick could actually did that. I've been waiting for the MB Pro to become available in the US again, and figured I go down this path until they are. I may do some testing with a meteostick too then, since those are available. Between my MBNanoSD and a Meteostick, I'd pretty much have a MB Pro Red.
I'm having enough fun with Mark's template, that I've ordered a second Moteino, and 2x antenna kits. Need two for good testing.
I've also had a bit of success setting up my site on a RaspberryPi V3 http://seamanville.com/pws/ with a really cool template you are bound to recognize :grin: . BTW, it is using the newer Nano direct features, and running MySQL.
This whole community rocks, so helpful, and so much info. Just think, I bought my first real weather station, a Vantage Vue in December (I think), returned it (wouldn't support what I thought it would), and started setting up my VP2 probably in Jan which has since been upgraded to a Plus with DT fan aspiration, and almost all of the info needed came from this and the Cumulus Forum. I may have been reading a lot lately  ;) I do try to answer my own questions if possible before I post, but there is some natural law out there that dictates I will usually only find my own answer right after I give up and post the question.
