Tempest ambient meteobridge question. Need help
« on: November 23, 2021, 09:15:49 PM »
Hello, I am still waiting on my Tempest which arrives Friday and just finished installing my ambient meteobridge and was wondering how does the tempest weather data from my home get Ingested into the meteobridge? I have already connected it via cat 6 cable to my nighthawk and have it online and selected Tempest as my main weather station. I will be installing my Tempest station this Saturday but was just wondering how the data flows into the bridge. Since the meteobridge is on my network and is connected to my nighthawk will it automatically ingest data when the tempest is up in running? Last time I had it connected was with an ambient weather station using the gw1000 but was told I donít need it anymore since i am using a Tempest station. Sorry if this is confusing just wanted someone to explain it a bit
More to me how the tempest and meteobridge see each other. I also already did an IP reservation for the meteobridge so incase thereís a reboot the IP wonít change.

Any advise or explaination will be greatly appreciated.

I received a Tempest from my bride for Christmas, replacing an aging Vantage Vue.  I would also like to be able to post to CWOP, which was fairly direct with the Davis unit.

Meteobridge WiKi => WeatherFlow
AIR, SKY and the new all-in-one TEMPEST stations are supported. Meteobridge connects to the HUB delivered with the AIR/SKY/TEMPEST units and reads out data via the local LAN/WLAN.

The Tempest outside sensor array communicates with the inside Tempest/WeatherFlow hub using their own protocol.

That Tempest/WeatherFlow hub will be connected to your in-house WiFi network when you install the device.
Your  WiFi network is  also "part"  of your in-house LAN and therefor connected to the internet.
Your Tempest/WeatherFlow hub can upload the Tempest weather data to the Tempest website.
And the hub can deliver the Tempest weather data to any device on your LAN/WLAN if requested by such devices.

Your Meteobridge is already on your LAN.
Normal WiFi uses the same network addressing as your LAN so the Meteobridge can communicate with devices on your WiFi network including the Tempest hub.

Your Metebridge should find the IP-address of the Tempest hub by itself.

Off topic:
If, in the future, you want to add other sensors you can still use your GW1000 as the Meteobridge can communicate with 5 weather-stations at the same time.

If possible instruct your router to give the Tempest/WeatherFlow hub also a fixed IP-address.

Succes,

Wim

You could use a Meteobridge for that. It allows uploading to CWOP and 20+ other networks.
It also is able to continue to upload to WeatherLink.com if you did so in the past with your Davis VUE.
