Bresser 5-1 - what model to chose on Weather Underground?
« on: June 29, 2022, 12:39:02 PM »
Hi,

Sorry if this has been asked before, I searched but could not find the answer...

What PWS (device hardware) should I choose on the list of devices? My Bresser 5-1 isn't one of the options. I have tried 'other' and a few other options, but I keep being offline. I am sure that my credentials (Station ID and Station Key) are correctly entered (I copied and pasted them).

I have registered the Station ID IKNIVS9 - but it stays offline even after several days...

On WeatherCloud it works when I use the make/model CCL Electronics/W100.

Thanks!


Thanks!

The model stated on my page was wrong for a long time. It did not affect whether I was on line or not.

Thanks! What model did you enter, and did it suddenly work after a while or did it never work?

They never had VP2 Cabled before. I had to use Wireless. Had no effect. Station works when it works. Quits when WU screws up. Just like everybody. But has seemed stable lately. If just starting station it will likely take a few days maybe to show up.

I am sorry David, I am not sure what you mean in your answer...

Mine is Bresser 5-1 WiFi, but that is not on the listof choosable devices in Wunderground. Do you have the same station and what device did you choose on the list?

Thanks!

Hi,
It is of no importance what you choose.
Just select “other” , the list is very old, most recent stations are missing.

If your data is not shown on the WU dashboard page, check the setting.
It takes some time, a few days, sometimes before the data becomes visible.

If it is not visible, recheck your settings and try to use ID and password instead of ID and key.
Do not use the API-key, that one serves another purpose.

Succes,
Wim

Why does it matter what station people use. All they want to do is see their station and town and neighborhood online. They don't really care about accuracy, right?
