This is my first post to this forum!
I had a LaCrosse WS2315 weatherstation that I connected to my computer and used Cumulus for a while. I uploaded my data to wunderground.com and cwop as well as my personal web site. The station died and I replaced it with a Davis Vantage Pro2 6153. I acquired an Envoy8x as well since I wanted the console to be in one location and my computer in another.
Unfortunately, what I realized is that the Envoy8x neither has the ability to work with the WeatherLink software nor other weather station software. While I haven't written code in a while, I am a software developer by trade and rather than sending the envoy8x back I decided to write my own software. I have figured out how to upload to wunderground.com as well as CWOP. I am posting this to make others aware such that if you are interested I can send you my code.
The nice thing about the Envoy8x is that it writes everything to a database. I have a SQL Server 2008 R2 database that I've got the data being logged to and so the code, written in C#, is designed to work with a SQL Server database. I have two chunks of code. The first is a CLR Trigger written for SQL so that when a new row of data is added to the database it gets uploaded to wunderground. The other is a simple console app that runs using the windows task scheduler every five minutes, grabs the latest record from the database and uploads it to CWOP.
I created a custom view along with some custom functions to generate some of the data required for these services like rainfall over last hour, last day, last 24 hours, etc.
Has anyone else done any work with the Envoy8x? I'm probably going to start working on a client application to do the tradition charting/graphing stuff.
