V3 & WeatherFlow


I know about the new [WeatherFlow]((http://weatherflow.com/smart-home-weather-stations) PWS because I noticed it mentioned here in a post. It appears to be the shit with unlimited integration. So I pre ordered one for my first PWS. It has native WU support, so I know I can use Carl’s approach to transferring the data to PWSWeather, to which Rachio has native support.

Has WeatherFlow been researched by your team? I’ve read about the openness that is coming in V3, could this new PWS be directly integrated to Rachio in V3? I’m pretty sure I read where you can make direct calls to the device as well as API calls to their server.


I have not looked too much into it yet, but this convinced me :joy: Will you keep us updated on your experience @Bill.Maupin?


It’s not expected to ship until next month, but yea.


These are partially shipping. I received the hub and “air” unit (measures temp, humidity, lightning). Another few months for the rain gauge.


I’ve had my WeatherFlow Air and hub unit running for a few weeks now. They work fine and it’s very easy to use Gene’s wufyi.com process to get the data moved to a PWS station. Looking forward to when they release the Sky units.


Got mine too. Working flawlessly. Can’t wait to get the sky unit.


Very curious to see how accurate the rain guage turns out to be.


Thanks for the update guys!


I have weatherflow. Now that it is fully setup with sky the data seems great. Even has solar energy data. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KCOARVAD221

I’d love to use this data for rachio optimization.


Yes, please add direct integration! I have mine setup now as well:

@Gene, may I put myself on the list of folks hoping to take advantage of your genius?


@Raymondo17 done (link), be on the lookout for PWS_KCARANCH289 in an hour or two.



Sweet! @Gene, thank you so much! Here I was looking at all kinds of options to get my data up on PWSweather, including setting up a Raspberry Pi and installing accompanying software, and you knock it out of the park for me. I am extremely grateful. :smiley:

Now that the info is up on PWSweather.com, should I set up my own account on that website? If I did, is there a way to meld the page you created for me into my own account?


My pleasure, I’ve been in your situation and didn’t like the options :wink:

You are not the first to ask about using your own credentials, here is the latest discussion (link). Long story short… you can, but in my opinion, it’s just busywork at this point.



You totally rock, Gene. :sunglasses:



Hi @Gene could you possibly direct link my new weatherflow too?






@mda done (link), be on the lookout for PWS_KCALOSAN784 within a few hours. I’ve used WU for now since it is easier, but I’ve made a note of your weatherflow info as a backup source.



Thanks @Gene !


Hi Gene…Santa gave me a new Weather Flow and I would like to have it linked to my Rachio Gen2. Any way you can be so kind and link mine as well? Here is my link… https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KNCCATAW11.

Appreciate any help you may be able to provide!
