WeatherLink connection issues  

New Member

Hello everyone,

First I'd like to say thank you to everyone who is involved in creating and maintaining Weather Station. It looks to be very robust and useful!

I have a weather station connected to the Internet through the Davis Instruments WeatherLink Live device. I have been trying to establish a connection to this station but to no avail! After searching through the forums I have seen several other posters have similar issues with connecting to WeatherLink stations - but no specific mention if they are using a WeatherLink Live device like I am. I suspect they are, and if so - here is what I have found so far.

First, you need to use your browser's dev tools to increase the size of the API token field. The default max size of 20 characters is insufficient for the API tokens that Davis Instruments is generating now. Perhaps old tokens were smaller and they have recently increased in size?

Second, if your weather station is connected to the Internet through a WeatherLink Live device like mine, the v1 API will not work at all per the documentation and Davis Instruments tech support. I have tried searching the Weather Station source code to try to verify that v1 API is being used, but no luck so far. Davis Instruments tech support did confirm that the v2 API will work with WeatherLink Live connected devices.

I will be spending more time trying to find in the Weather Station source code where this API is called. If anyone can help point me in the right direction it will be much appreciated!

Thank you again!
