ConsoleWD for PI and new Weatherstation
« on: May 08, 2016, 11:13:19 AM »
I've been using the ConsoleWD for PI with my old WM-918. I'm using it mainly for uploading to Wunderground. I'm using the RAPIDFIRE protocol for the upload. Everything was working fine till last weekend. Since then I was getting more and more that my TEMP was out of reach. I've had this 5 years ago too, but then I was also having an old spare WM-918, so replacing the TEMP gauge was the solution. But I ran now out of spare parts. After 20 years of service, it is time for a new station.

So I'm looking for a station that can connect to my PI, use ConsoleWD and sent with RAPIDFIRE in max 10 sec interval to WUNDERGROUND. I only need TEMP, RAIN and WIND info. Budget max. EURO 200 (US$ 220). What would be the advice?

I finally bought a new weather station. Ambient Weather WS-1001-WIFI OBSERVER (or in my case, bought it at CONRAD, so the name is a bit different). The station is reporting by itself to WU. But I like to use my CONSOLEWD on the PI, because I also create my own pages.

I did found some software on the net that makes it possible to see the output of the weatherstation on my PC. So now the question is, is it possible to connect it with the CONSOLEWD. If so, what is the TYPE nr to choose in the config, and what is the PORTNR it is standard using?

the windows version of WD, i.e weather display
supports this station type now
I could add support for a direct socket connection to consolewd for linux running
(are you using it on a 32 bit linux or a raspberry pi, or?)

Wow, that would be great if you can add this. I'm using it on the PI. At the moment I'm using ****Weather Display vers WD_console_12.3****

to be able to add support, I would need to be able to test..e.g if you could port forward the IP address and port and email me that?
