Hi Pierre,

I hope that you are enjoying Autumn on Northern Hemisphere. I was in NH on August and "what a hot!".

I've been researching about Ecowitt Weather Stations and I read the french post on this forum. I talked with Ecowitt engineers and they said me that a new firmware update for their products enable to us to send data to a custom website, copying either Weather Underground or Ecowitt.net upload protocol. So I want to test with some Ecowitt stations bought by Redmeteo.cl members.

I think that it will be a good idea to implement on newer versions of Weather Station plugin. (Obiously, I'm happy to help and share pieces of code)

Packet example:
GET /weatherstation/updateweatherstation.php?ID=I5231&PASSWORD=nanananana&tempf=79.3&humidity=70&dewptf=68.7&windchillf=79.3&winddir=277&windspeedmph=0.00&windgustmph=0.00&rainin=0.000&dailyrainin=0.000&weeklyrainin=0.000&monthlyrainin=0.059&yearlyrainin=6.803&solarradiation=0.00&UV=0&indoortempf=78.6&indoorhumidity=71&baromin=29.71&soilmoisture2=0&soilmoisture3=0&soilmoisture4=8&soilmoisture5=0&lowbatt=1&dateutc=now&softwaretype=GW1000_V1.4.7&action=updateraw&realtime=1&rtfreq=5 HTTP/1.0
Accept: /
Host: Customize server IP
Connection: Close

Like other times, thank you for this great plugin. We received very good comments from Chilean meteorologists, users, TV presenters and people that visit our website, and most of the credit is for Weather Station.

Is it ok for you that I put Weather Station plugin logo on bottom, like an aknowledgement? (Something like "Powered by Weather Station Software", but in Spanish, "Impulsado por Weather Station Software")

SALUDOS!!

David

just out of curiosity, what is it you fill in on the ecowitt application to configure your ecowitt?

do you enter server address etc...?

Hi there,

In conversation with Ecowitt support, if you redo the same folder and php structure of WU, but in your web server, it's possible to point your weather station to your website (or IP address) data retrieval system, writing some PHP code to perform that.

Best regards

Hi everyone,

If you have FTP access on your website, I could share with you via email the PHP code that resembles Weather Underground' upload protocol (something like your.website.com/weatherstation/updateweatherstation.php), and then write a compatible file to be read with Weather Station plugin. You also need some authentication scheme. I wrote a simple approach that could ask me internally, for security. If you have an Ecowitt weather station, using your phone and WSview app, you have to redirect a Custom Upload, and on configuration, you have to put this data (obviously, if you had uploaded updateweatherstation on your server):

[Customized:] Enable

[Server:] your.website.com

[Protocol type same as:] Wunderground

[Path:] leave as default

[Port:] 80

[Station ID] and [Station Key]: whatever!, depends of your authentication scheme deployed.

And then SAVE

Right now, our website (redmeteo.cl) have several Ecowitt stations directly connected to our server.

Let's talk on redmeteoaficionadachile [at] gmail [dot] com. CHECK THE UNIX PERMISSIONS AND AUTHENTICATION SCHEME BEFORE USING THE SCRIPT, TO AVOID SECURITY ISSUES.

Best regards!
