By the way, I think your weather station is the closest one to my own one at the moment.
Yeah, I'm not too far from you. Have been following yours when i set up mine originally around 2012/13!
When I decided to get my weather station back up and running again, I didn't expect this much hassle! I thought it would be more or less "plug & play". To the most part it is, bit time consuming getting set up and creating the different accounts for the station to report to.
I'd done a bit of research while I was waiting for my WH3000 SE to arrive. I set up the various accounts beforehand and even set up a twitter page for the station to automatically report to.
I also found a plugin for my website that would work for my weather station and had some very nice page templates to use on my website. So far so good..... or so I thought!
Weather station arrived, got everything set up in place of the old WH1080. 1st difference was this is all worked on wifi. No usb ports, no need to connect to a pc. That ruled cumulus out. Everything is set up from an app you have to install on your phone. OK, download app and have everything set up pretty quickly and easily.
Now to set it up with my own website. The plugin I'd installed, needs to connect with Ambiant weather, the one service my weather station doesn't connect too.
Back to google I go (what did we ever do before google!) to see if I can connect wunderground data with my site. There seems to have been major changes there recently, but after a lot of research I've found that I can gather the data my station is uploading and show it on my own website through an "API".
This is a little beyond my skills so I've had to get the BIL involved. So now, he's developing a plugin that will pull in the data from wunderground and display it on my own website.
To be continued.....
