I’m developing a binding for Ambient Weather weather stations.
To use the binding, your station needs to push data to the Ambient Weather online service. And you’ll need to create an API key on your Ambient Weather dashboard located at https://dashboard.ambientweather.net/dashboard
The binding uses the real-time API provided by the Ambient Weather online service. The real-time API gets weather station updates whenever the station pushes data to the Ambient Weather online service. Therefore, the data doesn’t have the latency issues associated with a solution that polls for the data.
The binding currently support the following weather stations. If you have one of these stations, and are interested in trying out the binding, please let me know.
- WS-1400-IP series (stations that use the Observer IP module)
- WS-8482 stations
If you have another weather station that posts data to Ambient Weather, I’d be happy to see if I can add support for that station. Please PM me and we can work out the details.
I’ll also post some additional sample information to help you get started, including items and sitemap definitions, transformation maps, etc.
