Hi Gyvate,

I have added the additional Soil sensors, however to accommodate this I have dropped the battery. 

There is a fine balance between a quick easy to read screen and a cluttered mess.  WeatherWizz is about trying to pick what is the most commonly used values and displaying them in a way that at quick glace its easy to read.  So I use the rule that if I can read the values at 10 feet away were good.  If not, then its too small and some values have to get dropped ☹

This is my iPad Pro and I can only just read this from 10 feet away :)

almost perfect  :grin:
If the date/time of the last strike could be shown in small letters like the distance next or under the lightning count, that would be great.
See example below

And, Oh how hard it is to keep us testers happy.

I just tried this.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

But my only additional sensors are a WH41 & WH43 Air Quality.

Maybe a checklist of all devices is next

Looking at @SnowEntry's iPad picture, one more row would be possible and not impact visibility.
Theoretically space for 8 more sensors.
E.g. 4 x WH41/43 = PM2.5 , 1 x CO2-PM2.5, 1 x CO2-PM10 and two spare places ....
or 2 x WH41/43, 1 x CO2-PM2.5, 1 x CO2-PM10 and 4 more spaces - for leaf moisture (still to come)

One thing to keep in mind is that during the year, some sensors may come and go. In my case soil sensors as I don't need all of them in the winter and remove their batteries and store the sensor. Ecowitt.net handles this by dropping the tile after a certain period of time if no data received.
Ambient:WS-2000,PM 2.5 x2,WH31B x2,WH40E,WH31P
EcoWitt: GW1000 x4,WH31 x2,WH57,WH51 x12, WH40,WH5360B

Lightning works great now  [tup]  =D> - the respective CumulusMX string is:

https://api.weatherwizz.com/api/update?stationid=XXXXXXXXX&auth=XXXXXXXX&wd=<#avgbearing>&ws=<#wspeed>&g=<#wgust>&oc=<#temp>&r=<#rfall>&rh=<#rhour>&ap=<#press>&od=<#dew>&h=<#hum>&uv=<#UV>&oma=<#tempTH>&omi=<#tempTL>&wc=<#wchill>&it=<#intemp>&rr=<#rrate>&rm=<#rmonth>&ry=<#ryear>&fl=<#feelslike>&hi=<#heatindex>&sr=<#SolarRad>&temp1=<#ExtraTemp1>&temp2=<#ExtraTemp2>&temp3=<#ExtraTemp3>&temp4=<#ExtraTemp4>&temp5=<#ExtraTemp5>&temp6=<#ExtraTemp6>&temp7=<#ExtraTemp7>&temp8=<#ExtraTemp8>&h1=<#ExtraHum1>&h2=<#ExtraHum2>&h3=<#ExtraHum3>&h4=<#ExtraHum4>&h6=<#ExtraHum6>&h7=<#ExtraHum7>&h8=<#ExtraHum8>&sm1=<#SoilMoisture1> &sm2=<#SoilMoisture2> &sm3=<#SoilMoisture3>&sm4=<#SoilMoisture4>&sm5=<#SoilMoisture5>&sm6=<#SoilMoisture6>&sm7=<#SoilMoisture7>&sm8=<#SoilMoisture8>&co2=<#CO2>&co2_24h=<#CO2-24h>&ls=<#LightningDistance>&ln=<#LightningStrikesToday>&lt=<#LightningTime format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS">

users can remove the sensors they don't have - then "--.-" will be shown for the missing ones, otherwise "0" if they don't have these sensors but still have CumulusMX send data [CumulusMX will then send "0"].
The lightning time will then show in the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SSZ, If one prefers a different time format  ' format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS" ' has to be removed and the tag <#metdate> added:
lt=<#LightningTime><#metdate> modified to match one's wishes.

Only the Ecowitt/Fine Offset custom server version seems not yet to work properly for the lightning time stamp - for my console it shows 12-08-2021 (not sure if this is supposed to be 12-Aug-2021 or 08-Dec-2021) - but this date lies in the future and is surely not sent by the console. The console sends the number of seconds passed since 01-Jan-1970, the Unix time or EPOCH time.
The proper time it has to show is 12-Jul-2021 22:08 (12-07-2021). You can look up FBDYSOLGQP for the proper value(s).
Similar situation with the soil moisture values for the custom server
a) only 4 instead of 5 shown
b) value assignment is not consistent - it should match the CumulusMX result but doesn't (double assignment ?)

EDIT: time format changed from format=u to format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS"

For the lightning time in Cumulus MX, the format string "g" may be appropriate for most people as it formats according to your locale?

Code: [Select]
lt=<#LightningTime format=g>
Examples...

2009-06-15T13:45:30 -> 6/15/2009 1:45 PM (en-US)

2009-06-15T13:45:30 -> 15/06/2009 13:45 (es-ES)

2009-06-15T13:45:30 -> 2009/6/15 13:45 (zh-CN)

Thanks for that hint, Mark - but I was looking for a locale independent but still not to "strange" format which I think I found in the "u" format.
Of course everyone will be able to modify according to their taste.

Sure, understood, but the "u" format appends a "Z" which implies the time is in UTC, it isn't in .Net unless you first convert to UTC then use the "u" format. So you will be getting the time in the local TZ with a UTC designator. Even more confusing!

The "U" format outputs a full ISO date//time format, but this time always converts it to UTC.

If you want the "u" format, in local time, with 24h, and without the trialling Z, then use "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"

Anyway enough side tracking this post!

Thanks, that's even better (for me) !  [tup]
Now my dashboard with weatherwizz.com is almost complete - just waiting for one more line to be added accommodating the PM2.5 (WH41/WH43) sensors and the WH45-CO2 PM2.5 and PM10 sensors  :-)

One more remark - I suggest to have the soil moisture values to be right justified in their box (now they are left justified) so that they align +/- with the extra temp and extra hum values.
Otherwise, to me, it looks like a symmetry break.

Hey Phil23,

Just looking for these WH41 & WH43 Air Quality sensors you have.  I don't see anything for WH41 / 43 coming from your station.  At best I see wh65 and wh25 battery = (0) zero, perhaps that I why I don't see the values because the battery is flat?

Can you confirm your station ID, just so I know I am looking in the right place.

Thanks!


There is a fine balance between a quick easy to read screen and a cluttered mess.  WeatherWizz is about trying to pick what is the most commonly used values.....

And, Oh how hard it is to keep us testers happy.

The WH41/43 identifiers should be like:
pm25_ch1;pm25_avg_24h_ch1;pm25_ch2;pm25_avg_24h_ch2 - like my console posts - and these are g/m3
and the WH45 particulate matter sensors are:
pm25_co2;pm25_24h_co2;pm10_co2;pm10_24h_co2, units also g/m3

The _co2 comes from the fact that the WH45 is a 5-in-1 sensor combo with internal Temperature, internal humidity, PM2.5, PM10 and CO2 sensors.
It's so-to-say "the CO2 combo".

Just a note on &lt=<#LightningTime format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS">

for ecowitt that sends date serial / unix, I have modified the backend to convert the date serial to the local time zone from which the console is being viewed. 

for cumulus, if you use &lt=<#LightningTime format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS">, no conversion will be done the value will just display as you send it (this works well provided you don't share your console with users/family in a different time zone) as this would not make sense to them especially if you are like me and ahead in time of most people as it would look to you like I am predicting the future LOL. however if you send &lt=1626120513 then it will be converted to the viewers local time. 

So it's probably best to stick with date serial / unix.


Lightning works great now  [tup]  =D&gt; - the respective CumulusMX string is:

https://api.weatherwizz.com/api/update?stationid=XXXXXXXXX&auth=XXXXXXXX&wd=<#avgbearing>&ws=<#wspeed>&g=<#wgust>&oc=<#temp>&r=<#rfall>&rh=<#rhour>&ap=<#press>&od=<#dew>&h=<#hum>&uv=<#UV>&oma=<#tempTH>&omi=<#tempTL>&wc=<#wchill>&it=<#intemp>&rr=<#rrate>&rm=<#rmonth>&ry=<#ryear>&fl=<#feelslike>&hi=<#heatindex>&sr=<#SolarRad>&temp1=<#ExtraTemp1>&temp2=<#ExtraTemp2>&temp3=<#ExtraTemp3>&temp4=<#ExtraTemp4>&temp5=<#ExtraTemp5>&temp6=<#ExtraTemp6>&temp7=<#ExtraTemp7>&temp8=<#ExtraTemp8>&h1=<#ExtraHum1>&h2=<#ExtraHum2>&h3=<#ExtraHum3>&h4=<#ExtraHum4>&h6=<#ExtraHum6>&h7=<#ExtraHum7>&h8=<#ExtraHum8>&sm1=<#SoilMoisture1> &sm2=<#SoilMoisture2> &sm3=<#SoilMoisture3>&sm4=<#SoilMoisture4>&sm5=<#SoilMoisture5>&sm6=<#SoilMoisture6>&sm7=<#SoilMoisture7>&sm8=<#SoilMoisture8>&co2=<#CO2>&co2_24h=<#CO2-24h>&ls=<#LightningDistance>&ln=<#LightningStrikesToday>&lt=<#LightningTime format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS">

users can remove the sensors they don't have - then "--.-" will be shown for the missing ones, otherwise "0" if they don't have these sensors but still have CumulusMX send data [CumulusMX will then send "0"].
The lightning time will then show in the format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SSZ, If one prefers a different time format  ' format="dd-MM-yyyy HH:MM:SS" ' has to be removed and the tag <#metdate> added:
lt=<#LightningTime><#metdate> modified to match one's wishes.

Only the Ecowitt/Fine Offset custom server version seems not yet to work properly for the lightning time stamp - for my console it shows 12-08-2021 (not sure if this is supposed to be 12-Aug-2021 or 08-Dec-2021) - but this date lies in the future and is surely not sent by the console. The console sends the number of seconds passed since 01-Jan-1970, the Unix time or EPOCH time.
The proper time it has to show is 12-Jul-2021 22:08 (12-07-2021). You can look up FBDYSOLGQP for the proper value(s).
Similar situation with the soil moisture values for the custom server
a) only 4 instead of 5 shown
b) value assignment is not consistent - it should match the CumulusMX result but doesn't (double assignment ?)

I disagree - the station sends soilmoisture5.
When I compare with my CumuluMX fed console, it also shows 5
But the 1st 4 in CMX are not the 1st 4 in the custom server console fed dashboard
=> something got messed up in the assignment with the custom server fed dashboard

the CMX sequence shown is: 1-2-3-4-5
the custom server sequence is: 1-3-2-5 (4 missing) - such a sequence cannot come up - either 4 is omitted or double assigned and only the last value shows
I can tell from the values

I disagree - the station sends soilmoisture5.
When I compare with my CumuluMX fed console, it also shows 5
But the 1st 4 in CMX are not the 1st 4 in the custom server console fed dashboard
=> something got messed up in the assignment with the custom server fed dashboard

the CMX sequence shown is: 1-2-3-4-5
the custom server sequence is: 1-3-2-5 (4 missing) - such a sequence cannot come up - either 4 is omitted or double assigned and only the last value shows
I can tell from the values
CMX:FBDYSOLGQP

now sorted out ! right sequence - the values of SM5 will adjust over time

hmm, does that mean you are you now disagreeing with yourself?  :)

Have you found the issue and resolved it?

This is more of a general question for everyone.

Out of everyone who has set up their stations, How hard was it to understand the instruction and do you think you will continue to use WeatherWizz virtual console in the future?

I thought it was very easy to set up my ambient station.

And yes, I already have it bookmarked!

Just one question does ambient send the max gust for the day and is it displayable?

Hey Phil23,

Just looking for these WH41 & WH43 Air Quality sensors you have.  I don't see anything for WH41 / 43 coming from your station.  At best I see wh65 and wh25 battery = (0) zero, perhaps that I why I don't see the values because the battery is flat?

ID as in https://www.ecowitt.net/home/index?id=54277 ?

I don't see any battery issues, and the above feed is from the HP2551 which received an update yesterday.
Both Easyweather & Firmware in the console are current.

I also have a GW1000 feeding to Ecowitt & CMX, but didn't use It's feed.

Hi Phil23,

yes it does send it.  However the console is already way too full.

without changing anything at my end finally the proper sequence for sensors 1-4 appeared in the custom server dashboard - and even a 5th soil moisture sensor - so
a) the sequence must have been wrong before at the dashboard
and
b) the 5th sensor was still sent (maybe temporarily only that's what I'm still figuring out)
So my disagreeing with only 4 sensor data being sent was and remains correct - only that at the VC end now things are obviously sorted - in order to verify I changed the ID of my 5th sensor to see if it appears at a different sensor position, what it now does but didn't before.

These SM sensors can be a bit "moody" so it takes time ...

What is the station id of the console you are still disagreeing with?  :)
