Post by: waz7710 on September 22, 2020, 02:16:14 AM
Hey all

Anyone have an idea how to upload data from my station to windy? I have an Ecowitt HP2551 and it has got an option for custom but I really have no idea how to do it.

First: Welcome on this forum  [tup]

This link  is in German but the product is widely used
https://www.loxwiki.eu/display/LOXBERRY/FOSHKplugin
and supported very well on this forum.

It receives the data from the "custom upload" and can upload that data to 10 other places.
To Windy Awekas and others. But also to use the data with your own website.

Succes

The "Customized" server upload feature only sends data in WU or in Ecowitt protocol formats. Neither of those works for Windy. But as Wim has pointed out you can use another software to capture this data and then send it to Windy in the proper method for that service. There are other options like WeeWX that can also do this. You could also add a GW1000 and then run yet other software like Cumulus MX, Meteobridge and Weather-Display. All of these different software do much more than just give you ability to upload to Windy.
