Weewx Awekas API
« on: September 13, 2022, 03:16:08 PM »
Good evening,
I use the weather station from Bresser 7 in 1 Clearview and send the data to Awekas. Now I would like to download the data to Weewx via API. Is there a possibility? Many Thanks

two options which I can see:
1. via the AWEKAS API - the respective reply has been sent to your question in the weewx user group - you'd have to change some coding
2. use a SDR (software defined radio) device and the weewx SDR extension (provided the hardware/sensors of this Bresser station are known in the SDR database)

Thank you, I was able to connect to WU via API, data is also being fetched. Unfortunately, the data is still displayed incorrectly. I have Station_type = Simulator in the weewx.conf, is that correct?

From what I know WU data which the station sends to WU can be fetched via the weewx interceptor driver. The simulator does what its name says - it simulates  ;)
I suggest you check the interceptor driver and its description at
https://github.com/matthewwall/weewx-interceptor/
entries in weewx.conf:
station_type=Interceptor in [Station]
device_type = wu-client in [Interceptor]  (after installation  8-))

Hi, thanks for your help. I am now using the Inceptor driver. Data is also retrieved from WU. Under Current Conditions it says Outside Temp: 0.1 C
Inside Temp 17.2 C. Outside 12.9 and Inside 24.1 would be correct.

you may want to check what your station is posting before weewx is doing any processing.
For this run the driver only - as described with the interceptor driver documentation
e.g.
PYTHONPATH=bin python bin/user/interceptor.py --device=wu-client --mode=sniff --iface=eth0 --filter="src 192.168.0.4 and dst port 80"

you need to put your station's IP address - you may need to replace "python" by "python2" or "python3" and may need to adapt your path to the python directory
you may need to put a "sudo" in front of the command
if you use WLAN/WiFi with your weewx server, --iface=wlan0 needs to be put instead

the driver will send the output to the (server) console - then you can check what it receives and can figure out why your outdoor temperature shows wrong values inside weewx.
Meaning: see if it's a data issue with what station sends or is it due to some processing inside weewx

Another thing that struck me was Hardware Simulator under "about this station". Even though I installed the interceptor driver. Sorry for the questions

if you want to have something else written there, open the file /etc/weewx/skins/Seansons/about.inc
and change the respective line into:

....
<table>
    <tr>
      <td class="label">Hardware</td>
      <td class="data">xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</td>
    </tr>
....
where xxxxxxxxxxxxx is what you want to have

I guess the entry comes from the original choice of station during setup.
