I currently have a PWS (Personal Weather Station) running on my house (AcuRite 5in1 with internet bridge: http://bit.ly/1l2o813 ), which transmits data to the weather underground.
My PWS tracks rain fall which would be awesome to be able to delay my sprinklers based on the rainfall collected by my PWS.
This would be useful for people that doent have a PWS too, since they might find a nearby neighbor that has one, and they
can use that data for Weather Intelligence as well.
So if we can pick the source of where the “Weather Intelligence” gets it’s rain data, that would basically be the solution.
I was able to integrate my wunderground data with my VeraLite by getting a free API key,
and using a URL like this:
You could require the users get their own API Key from wunderground, so Rachio does not have to pay for access
to wunderground’s API.
