Using to integrate Personal Weather Stations


Right now your data is being transferred via wunderground, so if that upload is down, so is the rest of the system. I’ll be more than happy to setup data to be aquired directly from AcuRite. Just PM or email (to me your AcuRite hub ID / MAC address and I’ll take care of the rest.

How to use neighbor's weather station?

@franz. My PWS not showing within rachio after the update.


Thank you Franz, can you please provide an update. This is very important to me as i have an Acurite contributing to WU but can’t go to PWS without extraneous effort. I live 13 miles from closest NOAA weather center but near many WU stations. Just today i got <0.1 inches of rain whereas the NOAA got almost 4 inches due to scattered storms.

Knowing this cloud intelligence is in Gen3, means it should be no problem implementing in the cloud for Gen 2 and I really hope this has been considered to show you care about your existing userbase as @robnielsen alluded to.

I purchased and installed my Gen2 only about 2 to 3 months before the announcement of the Gen3, so of course my return policy was a moot point, so i definitely hope to see continued enhancements to previous generation controllers.

Thank you.


For now @Gene and his amazing tool is the best option.



Hey guys,

anyone having issues in the last week or so with this? My Cron-Jobs are failing constantly. I can’t figure out why. I’ve tried lowering the refresh rate from 5 minutes to 15 minutes but doesn’t seem to be helping.


I’ve sent you a PM.


Thanks for the help Gene. All fixed guys!


Very Good Gene but I do not see wind Gust on the PWSweather…Any plans to fix that ???


@vmavrommatis Can you please post or PM (link) the station you are talking about, the one without gust data?


the WU update is ok , the pwsweather has the problem please check below link


Seems you’ve setup your transfer to use as a data source, not wunderground. Problem with acurite is that they do not provide gust data by default, only 5 and 15 minute averages.

If you would like, we can setup wu as a source for your data, which will provide the gust data, but this will have no effect on the Rachio calculations as they do not use gust data, as far as I know.


Just an FYI, we do not use wind gusts from personal weather stations. We use hourly forecasted wind for weather intelligence.



Gene, franz thank you very much !! Everything worked fine with the [] and the []. Great Support !!
