The multi-sensor Z-Weather, which besides anemometer also measures many other weather- and environment data, can be perfectly integrated into the Zipabox. …and this is how it works! As mentioned at the beginning, Z-Weather is much more than just a wind sensor, among others, it also measures:Wind speed Relative humidity Brightness Air pressure Dew point Air temperature Solar and wind energy
On our siio blog, there have been a few articles about Z-Weather in the early past, for instance how to integrate it into Devolo and Daniel developed a script for the HC2. Other than that, there was an extensive test for the launch on [...]
In this article we are going to present you a virtual device, with whom you can change the weather display on your Fibaro HomeCenter 2 by own values (for instance caused by the values of a netatmo outside-module or the data of the Z-Weather). Further information below.
Let us start at the beginning: The API of the yahoo-weather service experienced some changes in the early past, due to them, no updates of the weather display were implemented anymore. The display and the triggering of scenes, which access the weather data (Small LUA Scripts Part 2: storm warning) has not been functioning from that moment on. With the update to firmware version 4.082 Beta, Fibaro changed the [...]
The Z-Weather multi-sensor also functions with the Devolo-Home-Control System. Unlike Fibaro and Co, data concerning weather can even be graphed in diagrams and this is how it all looks in the WebUI:
We already talked about the energy-self-sufficient weather sensor Z-Weather multiple times: Z-Weather in the test, Script for Z-Weather under Fibaro HC2, Netatmo vs. Z-Weather, … and so on.
Thanks to solar energy, this manages to go without additional power supply and provides diverse data about the weather to the user. It is now possible to integrate the weather sensor into the Devolo-Home-Control Center and to use data concerning weather for the performing of [...]
