    thing-it-weather

    NPM NPM

    Device Plugins for [thing-it-node] and thing-it.com for weather via the (http://openweathermap.org) weather service.

    User Interface

    This example shows the weather device UI together with the UI of a Z-Wave indoor sensor for temperature, humidity, and light in a wine cellar. It allows to see how outside weather influences the wine cellar currently.

    Usages

    Dashboarding capabilities at thing-it.com allow to generate charts that correlate outside weather data with any other sensor or actor. With that combination a variety of interesting analytical questions can be answered:

    • What is the response of a room to the outside temperature? - With an ambient sensor like the one used above.
    • How does electricity usage get influenced by weather? - With the weather device and an energy meter.
    • How does soil moisture correlate to outside circumstances? - Combining weather and soil sensors.

    You can also trigger action based on weather data:

    • Send an alert to a user if the temperature is below freezing.
    • Turn on the irrigation if it hasn't rained for more than 48h.
    • Start a process to check the status of an outdoor device that was subject to very high heat.

    Configuration

    Configure the following parameters via [thing-it] Mobile or thing-it.com.

    • City Name: The name of the city the weather should be retrieved for. Examples are 'Sydney' and 'Frankfurt am Main'.
    • Country Code: The country code (such as 'au' and 'de') for the country the city is in.
    • Language Code: The language code (such as 'en', 'de') for the result.
    • Units: Either 'metric' or 'imperial', default is 'metric'
    • Update Frequency Seconds: Time in seconds until [thing-it] requests the next weather update. This should typically be more than 10 minutes, so a value of 600 or higher.
    • Open Weather Map Key: They key you get after registering at (http://openweathermap.org).
