Ecowitt.net API release
« on: May 30, 2021, 03:42:34 AM »
Ecowitt is ready to release the API
in this final phase, and wanting to provide a satisfactory service for all needs, asks the users' opinion on the use they would like to make and which characteristics it should satisfy

for those who want to assist them in this process, send an email to my ecowitt address, each report will be forwarded directly to the Fine Offset technicians

supporto.it@ecowitt.com

please write in english

Thank you

EDIT

corrected mail address, sorry

Question:  Which API
1. the local network one as used by the local weather-programs like MB, WD, WeeWX.
2. a network API for loading the weather-data from ecowitt.net similar to the Amibient.net API

Hi Wim,

it is probably about the direct query of the data at ecowitt.net so definitely something that could be extremely interesting for PWSDashboard.

This is the basis for apps that can visualize weather data without direct contact with the local weather station.  Presumably the Ecowitt app will also be based on it.  Comparable to the Ambient Weather API - so there could be many different apps in the future that use this database.
A game changer.

Hi!

Just as an example, what is possible with it. A simple query (here via Python) of the current weather data for my station at Ecowitt.net results in:

So it is pure JSON which is very easy to process.

Question:  Which API
1. the local network one as used by the local weather-programs like MB, WD, WeeWX.
2. a network API for loading the weather-data from ecowitt.net similar to the Amibient.net API

Unless I am missing something I don't see a direct answer to Wim's question?

API on LAN are used since about 2 years by CumulusMX and others programs or app.
I believe that Mauro  is talking about option 2

hi, new to this.

Would this allow me to say use a Raspberry Pi to access data logged by my weather station, for example?

For example, if I have a script for a separate system that needs access to say outdoor temperature and soil moisture amount, can I now access this data using the new API release on Ecowitt.net?

thanks

Yes, if you are a software developer you can do that.

However, you have to be aware that the data must be stored at ecowitt.net - local access is not possible.
Your station sends the data to ecowitt.net and there the data is then available for query via API. This data can then be called up from the Internet via a defined API interface.

The advantage of this solution is that you don't have to worry about data storage or accessibility across network boundaries.
The disadvantage is that this data is not available locally and you are dependent on a (actually two - for uploading as well as downloading) internet connection(s) and the cloud provider (in this case Ecowitt). In addition, of course, your query program itself must still work.

FOSHKplugin, for example, is a local solution - the data is available locally in your network and can be easily accessed via http (e.g. curl) also individually for each sensor.
For me it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
tempf=`curl -s http://192.168.15.236:8080/getvalue?key=tempf`
tempc=`curl -s http://192.168.15.236:8080/getvalue?key=tempc`
echo current temp in F: $tempf
echo current temp in C: $tempc
output:
Code: [Select]
current temp in F: 70.3
current temp in C: 21.3
Since the data is not generally available on the Internet with a local solution, you have to take care of the accessibility of the services yourself - for example via VPN.

Apart from that, I think the query option at Ecowitt via API is really very useful and I'm looking forward to it.
It expands the possibilities ...

There will be further news shortly, in addition to this topic, some of a software nature, others purely hardware that I will list gradually

In the meantime I would like to give a big thanks to all user that are cooperating about API, every mail is forwarded to Fine Offset technicians staff not in real-time but near to it

The next step will be a dedicated web page for the management and complete configuration of the gw1000

On the hardware side, we will soon have an updated version of the ws80 which "should" have definitively solved the operating problems in case of heavy rain and wind.

Other things, even more, interesting in order to improve the quality of the detections are still under development and I'm not authorized to give more info

we are working to reduce this

Very interested in that especially as mine is only about 2 months old and I did not know about the issue prior to purchase. Is this a physical change or f/w?. To be honest I've not seen the issue but we have not had any huge rains storms either.

Well, Stuart,

I try to explain but you need to be patient, my English is horrible :(

Every ultrasonic wind sensor has this problem, due to water drops on the sensor or on field of action of the transducers

what's happening is a wrong estimation of air density and, consequentially, false peak max wind error and, sometimes, wrong direction

Could be possible to use a software correction but is a very hard way and needs a very sophisticated one.

The most practical way is to reduce the situations where the problem can happen, and this is a hardware solution

Not necessarily every user has this kind of problem, fortunately

Hi,

I have a couple of questions here with regards to accessing data from my Ecowitt system of sensors, and appolofize if this was already answered.

1. Could somebody share with me the JSON format of the request to obtain the data via the cloud?

2. In the event for local storage, could someone share with my all the variables available? not just temperature and humidity, for example, rain amount and soil wetness, wind speed, wind avg etc. in addition to what is being called for below:


Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
tempf=`curl -s http://192.168.15.236:8080/getvalue?key=tempf`
tempc=`curl -s http://192.168.15.236:8080/getvalue?key=tempc`
echo current temp in F: $tempf
echo current temp in C: $tempc

thanks!

I'm just noticing that it was probably not a good idea to add FOSHKplugin as an API alternative here in this thread, when it is supposed to be about the API solution.
Sorry!
Therefore, we should better discuss your 2nd question in the FOSHKplugin thread. Just this much: this is an API-independent solution that requires neither a cloud service nor an internet connection.
For this, however, FOSHKplugin is required on a 24/7 Linux computer.

I do not know whether one should/may give examples of this now, when the API has actually not yet been released.
But an example of the data that you get via API query is probably allowed:

}
Otherwise, the actual query is not difficult.
Only the one-time registration as a developer in order to receive an AppID and an openID is time-consuming.
The rest is straightforward:
request access token (this is only valid for a very short time)
http-GET-request with accessToken and openID to the Ecowitt-Cloud
Result: a set of data as above

Hi Mauro,

Ecowitt is ready to release the API

any news regarding this?
The old documentation website can no longer be reached, but the new one is not yet active.
One of my API tests (devicedata/history) has now returned a different error message - apparently it is being worked on:
Quote
[2] ErrorException in StatisticData.php line 99
array_merge(): Expected parameter 1 to be an array, null given

So far, I have not received any confirmations or questions about my information or advice.

Hi Mauro,

Ecowitt is ready to release the API
any news?
It has now been 2 months since this announcement. The API homepage can no longer be reached. The same goes for the original API description in Chinese.
I don't want to push, but I would like a sign from time to time that will continue to be worked on. Or some feedback to my suggestions.
Thanks!

Hi!

I meant the network/ecowitt.net API. Something to access the data sent to ecowitt.net (like the Ambient Weather-API).
The file you are referring to ist the local API for the GW1000 and other realtime stations.
But in fact it's nice they released this finally for the public.

It does not seem to have been updated lately though.
As far I can see, it doesn't need to be updated.
All available (and still to be released but already announced) sensors are contained.
And all communication commands for the GW1000 API as well.
It's of course sort of "bare". It implies that the reader/user has already quite some understanding of what is going on ....
It's not a full-fledged documentation with explanations.

I think what Oliver is looking for is the web API off of Ecowitt.net, as he stated. Like the one from AmbientWeather.net. From which to access what you want, you issue a http request to the website and the response has your data (being simplistic).

The API document described is to access a GW1000 or similar directly, without the web route, it is direct to the device, addressed locally, typically. (This is also something that we have said repeatedly is not available unless you jump through some hoops with F/O)

And yes, I agree, it is nice to publish this document. It also takes a level of knowledge and a the skill set to understand it and use it, which is probably a good thing.

The document is aimed at developers - so knowledge of TCP connections and socket handling is simply expected.
But a few examples or more detailed explanations would be helpful, yes.
Fortunately, there are a few applications that already use these functions and where you can tweak ...
But back to the actual topic - the ecowitt.net API.
