Supported Arduino weather station to weather display
« on: August 24, 2021, 10:33:44 AM »
Hi, Im just curious, theres a selection that weather display supports Arduino weather station source, I want to know what kind of ARDUINO weather station can be supported? (like esp8266? UNO or equivalent)  it is since many have kinds of Arduino based weather station builds. I want to know a kind of arduino that can be read on weather display.


Thank you for the answers

I am unsure what you are asking. You are trying to connect something with an Arduino compatible board?

Yes exactly,  because on weather display sensor setup theres a selection there
Where also supports arduino boards,  but I have no idea what kind thats why im asking
What kind of  arduino does weather display can fetch its realtime data,  so if any
Does know what kinf of arduino it is,  im glad to know


Regards

I am still unclear what you are trying to run on the Arduino board. I'm thinking that the Weather Display software itself will require something like a Raspberry Pi or something else with a proper Linux or Windows OS.

So you are trying to read specific sensors with an Arduino board?

Generally, it should not matter too much is my guess. Most boards like the Arduino UNO or the ESP8266 based NodeMCU or Wemos are pretty much compatible for the most part. You can run all sorts of similar sketches on it. I guess the pinout might matter. But it's really hard to say anything specific without knowing what you want to do.

I use the Wemos D1 Mini for all my projects and most of the time code and setup is interchangeable, keeping in mind a few differences between it other boards.

No, thats not what I meant, (see image below) theres settings in weather display that supports arduino, but I dont know what sort of arduino which can be read by weather display, yes like WEMOS, esp8266 or UNO are both Arduino types but in terms of usage to weather display I want to know what these types can be read up by weather display, because I plan to creathe wifi based weather stations using arduino then I will use weather display to read its realtime data from it

an Arduino weather station (you can get a kitset, build yourself a weather station), can be setup (programmed) to send the weather data as serial weather data
down a serial to USB connection,that the weather display software can then pick up

As waiukuweather suggests. This option appears to be a somewhat generic option to include a device (like an Arduino) to read data sent over a serial connection, typically a USB port.

So, to answer your initial question, as far as this option in Weather Display is concerned, it should not matter what Arduino compatible device you use. If anything, all Arduino type devices can send serial data. The idea appears to be that it will send specifically formatted data over the serial line, which Weather Display will interpret.

So you should image that the Arduino code would send serial data with a specific baud/bit rate (e.g. Serial.begin(9600) for a 9600 baud rate) that you can then specify in Weather Display. The data then sent should be formatted like "tempc=18.3" or something. So in code that would be Serial.println("tempc=18.3").

But it all depends on your own implementation.

By the way, if your goal is to have a Wifi capable device processing your data, doesn't Weather Display have the option to receive HTTP posts with data? That would seem to be the more obvious way to do it, unless you are hooking the Arduino which reads the sensors directly to the device running Weather Display. But that seems unlikely since a typical weather station would be outside?

Data tags to be used in Arduino sketch are visible in the image posted by pimohdaimaoh

Hi, yes thats what I want I mean and now I understand based on your clarifications, so it should converted from serial to USB to recognized by weather display.

anyways this what I want to try using this: http://cactus.io/projects/weather/arduino-weather-station

maybe you can give insight for this, but I hope I can find more which is it should be a wireless transmitter then the arduino itself is the reciever or vice versa

there are some threads on the WD support forum (the weather-watch forum)...use the advanced search feature (i.e click on the magnifying glass)
