WeatherFlow - Sky Rain Reading Problems
« on: January 22, 2018, 04:53:04 PM »
I'm having trouble getting WD v62 to read precipitation/rain readings from my WeatherFlow Sky.  Wind measurements are showing up reliably, so it is only rain readings that are not working.   Sky is showing 0.10 inches of accumulation of rain with a rate of 0.04 in/hour on the SmartWeather app and Weather Underground KORHOODR38 that is directly connected to the hub.  However, Sky is reporting no rain to Weather Display and can be seen on the WU KORHOODR9 connected to WD that is showing 0.00 inches accumulation and 0 in/hour currently).   I had WD previously connected to a WXT520 on comm 3 on this same PC, so I'm not sure if something is hanging around in the registry preventing WD from using the new rain data or something else is wrong.  Another possibility is the latest Sky firmware, HB_0_30.  I've noticed on the SmartWeather app Weatherflow provides that rain shows up a 0.000 in for past hour and last 24 hrs until you click on the rain icon and an earlier time.  Since this is my first attempt to connect Sky to WD, I'm not sure if this problem was there in earlier firmware version.  Anyone else having similar issues?

Mine is working fine. Are you getting data from the cloud or via UDP?

UDP.  There doesn’t appear to be any precip data being sent.  Other data looks fine.

I have my SKY unit now
I have fixed up a few things (and some bug fixs with the history data for the SKY data after some changed to the api) and I am sure I will find a few more
make sure to be using the latest .zip update of WD (and the latest cronweatherflow.exe included with that)

we are expecting some rain and strong winds here later next week :)

have you tried to reboot the hub ? In my case when I started to use the udp stream, it was not working till I used the heavy hamer solution from Brain  :lol:

was able to use a user with a SKY unit that set his up under a tap to simulate rain
and have fixed where the rain in the history data was not been picked up by WD
use build 64 update :)

I just installed.  I'm still not seeing any rain being shown in WD through UDP even though Smart Hub is showing rain.  Below is a picture.  Shows rain_debug.  Not sure what that is.

The rain numbers are only broadcast once per minute.

still no joy Brian.  WD reported no rain over night.    I have sky connected to Weather Underground through WD and directly to the hub.  The direct to hub version shows 0.1" since midnight.  The WD connected sky shows 0".  Is there a way to help narrow this down?  Do you save the raw UDP data in a log file I can examine?  I previously had WD connected to my WXT520 and I wonder if there are some residual registry settings not getting cleared when I changed weather stations.  Thanks for any pointers.  -joe

I have tested here and its working
for rain data
from my HUB (with the latest HUB firmware..what firmware do you have?)
the rain data should be in the obs_sky data
which gets saved to a file called
weatherflowobs.txt
maybe post that file here

Hub is version 30, Sky is rev 26, Terrace is 17.   Attaching file from two different times.  It is raining right now, but still not showing any rain on WD. 

First file update
{"serial_number":"SK-00005971","type":"obs_sky","hub_sn":"HB-00001940","obs":[[1517004844,null,0.00,0.015,1.12,1.49,2.19,272,2.79,1,105,null]],"firmware_revision":26}


Second file update
{"serial_number":"SK-00005971","type":"obs_sky","hub_sn":"HB-00001940","obs":[[1517005083,null,0.00,0.011,0.89,1.62,2.19,292,2.79,1,78,null]],"firmware_revision":26}

Third file update
{"serial_number":"SK-00005971","type":"obs_sky","hub_sn":"HB-00001940","obs":[[1517005263,null,0.00,0.016,1.52,2.43,3.53,258,2.79,1,72,null]],"firmware_revision":26}

Your UDP stream is showing rain, it is the 4th set in the data stream. Might be some other setting in WD that is blocking that

[[1517004844,null,0.00,0.015,1.12,1.49,2.19,272,2.79,1,105,null]],"firmware_revision":26}

The other issue I see is that your battery is getting very low, it should be up around 3.4v

[[1517004844,null,0.00,0.015,1.12,1.49,2.19,272,2.79,1,105,null]],"firmware_revision":26}

If you want to see how to read the data stream, go to https://weatherflow.github.io/SmartWeather/api/udp/v30/

Any ideas on what settings may prevent WD from using Sky's precip, but still use wind, temp, & pressure?
