How is Soil Temperature exported
« on: November 04, 2017, 12:22:42 AM »
I am considering adding a soil temp sensor to my Davis wireless Vantage Pro 2 station.

I see in the station setup section of WD that I can add and specify how WD adds the soil temp (temp1, temp3, temp5) to its database.

I am using WD API to send data to my Meteotemplate website.

Question:

Will WD insert this temp into the data string sent in the API.

I am guessing that it does and that I would just have to map that particular data point to the correct field in Meteotemplate MySQL database.

Anyone see a problem with this? Is anyone currently doing this.

thanks for your wisdom.
