That WS AmbiantWeather 2902A was used previously in Sunship by AV Consulting, and is being relocated to CSR office after the failure of our WS (same model).

Track info for setting up the WS here in this ticket.

History

#1 Updated by Philippe May 4 months ago

I downloaded the AmbientWeather app on smartphone and could connect to WIFI on the console.

Tried with AmbientWeather.net, but:

  • our account is old and we could not recover the password - doesn't matter much as ew don't have any active WS there anymore
  • the WS was still registered and AmbientWeather.net refused to assign it to another account.
So: trying with WUnderground.com:
  • Account email address changed to (credentials hold by Giulio)
  • Created on the web site: ID:IAUROV8,KEY:mKnHQ0Ex

  • Subject changed from Setp weather station in CSR to Setup weather station in CSR
  • Description updated (diff)

#3 Updated by Philippe May 4 months ago

See https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/IAUROV8
It's not clear which WS the console is connected to - maybe the old one on the roof actually?
I also reset the rain total counter on the console; as it showed the upper limit (6000) so it is now 0.

The new weather station is on the map and data accessible here: https://gis.avcsr.org/measures/avsm_misc.weather_station/2 . It is recorded with weather station id=2 than the old one (4).

Temperature, wind, pressure is recorded, but rainfall shows 0 - it needs to be checked when it rains.

One more photo at 10.56 AM

#8 Updated by Philippe May 3 months ago

@selvarani: that's fine, no need to add more pictures of the console, the data is available here: https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/IAUROV8

Gisaf stopped reading last night. Error log indicates it is probably related to https://github.com/agronholm/apscheduler/issues/803 (bug in early version of apscheduler 4).

Updating apscheduler, then i'll check if this solves the issue:

pdm update apscheduler

For information, i found a web page telling more about the device: https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=40730.0

It seems that the hardware is OEM manufactured by a Chinese company called FineOffset, see https://www.foshk.com/.

#11 Updated by Philippe May 3 months ago

Just found this project: https://github.com/bachya/ecowitt2mqtt

The goal would be to set up the WS send data to our server directly, instead of depending on cloud services (AmbientWeather or WeatherUndergroud). For example right now, it seems there's a network or power supply issue since last night so the WS data for that time is lost.

I think it's worth giving it a shot.

#13 Updated by Philippe May 3 months ago

Got the WS send data to the local server, and data published to mqtt (see #15276).

Next: Gisaf reactor to listen to the ecowitt2mqtt_local channel and save to the DB.

#14 Updated by Philippe May 3 months ago

I added the remaining piece that saves the WS data using this new method, not using any cloud service (AmbientWeather or WUnderground):

Weather station -> console -> local server: [ecowitt2mqtt -> mqtt -> gisaf reactor -> database]

Data like temperature, pressure seems ok (eg. check https://gis.avcsr.org/measures/avsm_misc.weather_station/2).

Waiting for rain to come to validate for the rainfall sensor and resolve this ticket.

Rain has come, and it seems to be all good bowtie

#16 Updated by Philippe May 3 months ago

I also updated the notebook which creates the "widget" which shows the latest rainfall (as displayed on the home page): it now uses that new weather station.
