I made a little Arduino based receiver to replace the obsoleted Acurite smart hub.  I mainly did this because I needed a way to get the data from the sensor(s) into my home automation.  However, I did set it up to send data to Weather Underground too.

That;s great!  I also note one of the links shows the Raspberry Pi build!!!

Fits any Acurite monitor? I have a 01035 model station.

I am having some difficulties making it work....  Are you available to help troubleshoot?  I am guessing I am missing something simple....

I guess that depends on what you mean by available.  I can answer some questions back and forth via email.

It would work for me...  I could also do facebook messenger, and google hangouts too if either of those work.  Send me your email address (use a private message if you prefer to not post it public)

Thanks! 

I figure I am missing something simple, knowing my track record with things LOL

Thanks Joe for the quick help!  Solved my issue, and it works great now!

Just to document for anyone needing it in the future....

In the D_Interrupts file, locate:

Code: [Select]
void handler()
and change it to:

Code: [Select]
void IRAM_ATTR handler()
Joe stated that something was changed in the Arduino IDE that requires this modification.

Thanks again Joe!!

Another update....  Some library changes have effected the code for the BMP280.  If you want to use a BMP280 with this, you need to find and comment out the following lines:

Code: [Select]
digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, !bitState);    - in D_Interrupts

digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH); // start with LED off   - E_Setup
pinMode(LED_BUILTIN, OUTPUT); // LED output   - E_Setup
