Cumulus with Ambient WS1001
« on: December 29, 2015, 06:20:55 PM »
I see that Cumulus is compatible with EasyWeather .dat.  The Ambient WS1001 uses a version of EasyWeather.  Has anyone tried Cumulus with WS1001:EasyWeather:Cumulus?

Hello,

Looks like there are a few of us here trying to do the same thing with the WS-1001.  I don't know if you have seen any of the other posts such as http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=28259.msg274121#msg274121.

I think Ambient Weather or Cumulus may add this capability in time, but it would be nice to figure out a way since all the pieces look like they are almost there.

I'll let all forum members know if I find anything or stumble upon any news.

Best regards,
Rob

we have successfully modified the ws1001 via a simple txt file edit to upload weather data direct every 16 seconds to an alternative web server here is the structure of the output and the modification can be found here

http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=28709.0

{"updated":"February 19, 2016 10:10:39 AM","outsideTemp":"47.1","outsideHumidity":"87","dewpoint":"43.5","windchill":"47.1","heatindex":null,"windDir":"332","windSpeed":"2.7","windGust":"4.9","rainrate":"0.00","raintoday":"0.00","radiation":"167.14","UV":"1","indoorTemp":"67.3","indoorHumidity":"49","barometer":"29.95","softwaretype":"ISTANBUL161 V2.2.5","power":true}

this should easy enough to impliment into cumulus if it can read an external file from a url or you could dump the output to localhost using iptables and dd-wrt based router firmware .

hope its of use .
