Advanced TCP/IP Data Logger
« on: June 17, 2014, 01:44:30 AM »
Hello,

Greetings from the Philippines.  :grin: I'm a newbie to this forum so please bear with me.

I joined in this forum because I want some advises from weather experts on how to automatically store the weather data into a database. I'm curious about it since our company is currently running 18 Davis Automatic Weather Stations using 6555 WeatherLink Data Logger. Through WeatherLink Software, we used TCP/IP connection so that we can remotely monitor the weather in our farms located in the different areas in the Philippines. We can't figure out how to create a system that can automatically get the data from the weather station without human intervention, and store these data to our database, and keeping it always running, still without human intervention.

I searched the internet for questions to this matter, and I found this thing called "ADVANCED TCP/IP DATA LOGGER". It's from AGG Software, and here's the link:

[http://www.aggsoft.com/tcpip-data-logger.htm]

I searched for tutorials on how to use this software, but I can't find one, even in Youtube.

Does anyone happen to know how this thing works? Please help me on this. I would appreciate a lot on any replies and comments.

Thank you.

I can not help you with the product you mentioned, BUT you are already using 18 WLIP 6555 dataloggers. So you can upload that data without any money involved to Weatherlink.com and let them automatically and free of charge upload the data to WeatherUnderground.com (WU).
Off course you have to define your 18 WU weatherstations first, if you not already have done so.

After doing these simple tasks, the WLIP will automatically upload to Weatherlink.com which will then upload the data to WU where WU will store all your data in the cloud.

You can than view your current and historical data on the 18 weatherstations pages on WU. Your data is visible in tables and in graphs. You can also use free PHP scripts on your webserver to retrieve the data and make all kind of graphs or colored tables.

So as long as you want to see current and historical weatherconditions for one farm at a time: No database needed.  WU will store your data in the cloud and makes it accesible where and when you want.

If you want to compare the weatherconditions between stations you have to define and build a database.
No standard product has that, as far as I know. But you can use the WU data for that.
You can download the historical and current data as a CSV file and insert the data into your own database. That will not be to much developement work.

If you do not want your data on the accesible to others as will be tha case when using the WU servers, you could buy 18 Metebridge devices (1 per farm) and let the Meteobridge devices upload the data to a  SQL database you have to build either way.

Succes, Wim

Some coincidence.  :shock: Two newbie posters "discover" the same  commercial software product  within a day of each other.  Anyway, sniffing TCP  is a snoot full of work.  Get a Meteobridge for each remote system and push all the data to an SQL database.  Costs less than a hundred bucks per station.

Hi wvdkuil,

Already done that. I registered all our stations to WeatherUnderground. And, it is working fine.
But, what I wanted is to store the weather data automatically to our server, not on WeatherUnderground or WeatherLink.com.

Anyway, thanks on your suggestion about Meteobridge.
I guess, Meteobridge will help me on this. I'll take time to try it.

Thank you so much. :grin:

Well I wish you succes with the Meteobridge. It works extremely easy.
And remember, thanks to WeatherUnderground you already have an extra backup-system in the cloud for all your past and future data.

Hi Bushman,

Really? Is there really another newbie who has same product with mine?  :shock: Wow! I guess, I better know him, maybe he can answer my queries on this matter.

Anyways, I'll try Meteobridge and see if it really works on our case.

Thanks a lot.  :grin:
