WeatherFlow Plug-in

My apologies if this isn't the correct place to put this, but Jay locked the existing thread about this plugin, and the plugin creator doesn't have a folder under the 3rd Party Plugins and Developers section. I understand the reason for locking it was because the developer wanted questions and bugs reported to his git hub site, but I have a general usability question that might be able to be answered by others who are using the plugin, and since they won't see this on git hub I needed a place to ask in the Indigodomo forums. Moderators: If this should reside somewhere else please move it.

I'm not an owner of a WeatherFlow device (but I have a Tempest on order). However I have been able to connect to the public data from someone who has one a few miles from my home. I've been able to create and update a few variables to work as triggers, etc, but can't find anywhere a list of what all of the different device states for the Sky device are. For example - what is the difference between Rain Accumulated, Local Daily Rain Accumulation, Rain Accumulated Final, and Daily Rain Accumulation Final? Is one of them the current rate and another the total amount? What does Final mean?

Re: WeatherFlow Plug-in

Bruce has updated his Plugin to support the Tempest and has included a few of the requests!

:D :D

Thanks Bruce!

Re: WeatherFlow Plug-in

The forecast page on the new app seems much better than on the previous app.

My WeatherFlow is just running without any problems, it’s working so good that you almost forgot you have it.

Is anybody using the forecast for any applications?
Not even sure if you can do it and are in bed and to tired to have a try myself

Re: WeatherFlow Plug-in

I have a Tempest device and it is working very well for me. The Tempest iOS app has a wealth of information and has some nice graphic presentations for rain and lightning.

I'm also using the WeatherFlow plugin but it's not displaying the barometric pressure correctly. The iOS app will show the pressure (inHg) correctly as 29.87 but the plugin displays it as 38.9. I tried changing the units to millibars but it still has the same error. I also deleted the device and created a new one and I still have the same problem. Anyone else having this error or any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks.

Re: WeatherFlow Plug-in

I have had my Tempest running for several days now and the Tempest Device, Hub, and iOS app are working great.

Unfortunately the Indigo Plugin isn't working at all for me. Granted the Tempest product is new, and I'm not sure Bruce even has one yet, so the Plugin code is most likely in need of some work.

- WeatherFlow Plugin allows me to create WS and UDP devices and they quickly populate with good data in Indigo, but then the Plugin stops seeing any new data.

- I have deleted the plugin and all devices, prefs and started over. This did not solve any issues.

- Indigo 7.4
- Plugin 0.2.1
- OS Mojave

This is a typical error

And another

Reloading the Plugin does not wake it up to gather fresh data, and every device has an error

I sure hope that this Plugin can get to the point of being stable and reliable. The last few days of testing have been a disaster since Indigo is using stale data, none of my schedules HVAC, Irrigation, Lighting (LUX), etc work correctly.

These issues have been reported to GitHub, but I think we need a user to user thread here on this forum.

I had trouble with getting the data to update correctly in the beginning. I initially created a Tempest UDP device for each weather value I wanted to track and then put them on a control page. They never updated correctly. What I then did was delete all the UDP devices and created a single UDP device with a "blank" value. Then on the control page I used that one device to create values for each weather reading I wanted. Now they update on the page every 60 seconds. I still have the bad pressure reading but everything else is updating correctly.
