Bloomsky Image to WU with Other Station
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:04:33 AM »
Is it possible to send the Bloomsky image/pic to a WU account and have the actual weather data come from another station?

Or have the WU Bloomsky image associated with another PWS using the URL method... https://icons.wunderground.com/webcamramdisk/p/a/PaulMy/4/current.jpg
I have just tried that and will see if it ever gets out of Awaiting Approval... https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IMIDDLES37#history

Enjoy,
Paul

I have a WU id for my Davis station, and another for my Bloomsky.  Bloomsky uploads data and pic.  Once you get that going, right click on the image for the Bloomsky station and "Copy Image location".  You'll end up with a link like shown by Paul.

Then you can add another camera with file location pointing back to a WU Image location.  Associate that with your other station.

However, be warned.  My Davis station camera pictures keep getting kicked offline.  I have to frequently go back in and re-submit and wait approval.  Apparently their weather cam product is so crappy, it won't even trust pictures on their own site.  Mine has been waiting for approval again for over a week.

My situation is I have one WU account which is being feed (data) by my Vue.  The webam is a seperate Intel camera that uses FTP via the WU setup.  What I'd like to do is take the Intel camera offline and bring in the Bloomsky pic only, keeping the data from the Vue.

You'll need to do that via 2 WU accounts.  One with the Bloomsky data and pic.  Then do the method I mentioned to take the Bloomsky pic and put it on your Vue station.
