Which Ambient station?

Post by kd7eir » Thu Apr 19, 2018 5:53 am

I want to buy an Ambient Weather station with UV and solar radiation sensors and use it with MT. Which Ambient stations will do this without having to buy extra networking hardware such as meteobridge?

I am using an Ambient WS-2902 and pretty happy with the results.

Edit: Just re-read your post. I suppose you can use the WS-2902 as I said before and set up a Wunderground account and use that to ingest data into MT. Has the sensors you are looking for and very accurate.

I have the lower end 1401. I am extremely pleased with with it. as to accuracy, you can check

https://weather.gladstonefamily.net/site/F2338

as to importing data, I used WU for a time, but they were very unreliable.

I use a meteobridge and it is very simple.

see:

I had a few reliability issues with it as a wireless device, and recently changed it to a wired device. over 4 days now without an issue. so far so good...

I see you got the 2902! great choice imo. I wish I had been able to afford that one, but oh well.

you might consider adding the UV to your stationData.php

It works great.

I hope i did not lead you stray because there is no UV or solar info in your stationData.php block.

are you working on them for some reason?

or do you have the extra sensors activated for the dB?

see:

I am working on the site. It suddenly decided to take 2 minutes to load when it used to load almost instantly. Nothing has changed, and my webroot loads instantly, so something has died in MT.

What's weird right now is that I have the edited stationData pages in place, and UV/Solar are showing on my Current page, but they are not showing in my station data.

It did take a long time to load, but the good news is that the solar and uv data is there now. not sure what changed.

even your signature takes a long time to load. wierd....

I noticed a slow down on my site as well the past few days and that was before I got stickers to work. Running speedtest on my side showed no slowdown so I'm pretty sure stickers had nothing to do with it.
