Acurite, Access, PWS and CWOP?
« on: September 25, 2018, 02:12:56 PM »
Now that this board is here. I can post this here. If a mod could delete my post from the Smarthub forum, that would be great.  :grin:

I'm about to order the new Atlas, I already have the Access. I have a couple software questions...

It seems like Acurite only supports uploads to Wunderground right now?

1. Are they planning on adding more upload capabilities?
2. Is there 3rd party software to upload to PWS?
3. CWOP: Is there a way I can take part in CWOP with an Acurite Atlas and Access? 3rd party software maybe?

Acuparse currently uploads weather data from a 5n1 to PWS, CWOP, WU, and WeatherCloud using your SmartHub/Access. Acuparse should also be able to read the data from the Atlas via your Access, once I get a copy of the data string(s) it is using. At the moment, getting an Atlas to play with is way out of my reach; cost wise.

Acuparse captures, stores, and displays data from an AcuRite‎ 5N1 weather station and towers via an Access/smartHUB. Uploads to Weather Underground, Weathercloud, PWS, and CWOP. Altas support coming soon!

Thank you but I only have a windows machine right now.

You can do one of the following since you only have Windows:

1 - Install Oracle VirtualBox on Windows and then install and run Linux on top of Windows as a VM.

2 - You can test Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) if you have Windows 10 and test that environment as it may work, this runs simultaneous to Windows and is not a VM. WSL basically can run various Linux flavors simultaneously with Windows 10 using Microsoft's Linux Kernel replacement (this is not emulation).

3 = You can very cheaply (~$60) get a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and then run Linux on that.

I'd go with the Raspberry Pi solution.
