Ecowitt/Fine Offset weather stations

Dear all, I thought I would post here about my findings on the latest Fine Offset weather stations. If you are not aware Fine Offset have started or are collaborating with a new sister company in Hong Kong/Shenzen called Ecowitt. Ecowitt's aim is to bring direct to market all the goodness that Fine ...

Re: Cumulus MX and WiFi Only stations

Hi Galfert (I'm also Mandrake! BTW on the WX forum!) I have been doing some research and I have found the following Python script someone wrote for the HP1000 series consoles. https://github.com/wrbelfield/ws1001wxdata If you look at the script you can see its easy to alter the code to talk to whate...

Re: Cumulus MX and WiFi Only stations

While I wait for my new Ecowitt/Fine Offset station to arrive I have been doing a lot of investigation. There is a phone app (ws View) that allows live data viewing from either the Gateway (Gw-1000) or the console. So, this must imply that you could in theory write some code that reads the data dire...

Re: Cumulus MX and WiFi Only stations

Thanks Chaps, I will take a look at WeeWx. I presume a SDR is needed as well in the Pi in order to capture the sensor transmissions? Looks like my trusty N96GY has finally given up in the gales this week. While I wait for my new kit to wing its way from China and Fine Offset/Ecowitt I will do some r...

Cumulus MX and WiFi Only stations

Hi, it is with some despair that I find my old and trusty maplin/FO weather station is beginning to die after nearly 10 years of reliable and relatively trouble free use. The last three years or so it has been feeding my Pi and Cumulus MX. However after dialogue with FO in China I have decided to ta...

Re: CumulusMX - RasperryPi - Start|Stop|Restart Script V2.5

Probably a noobie question, but I am new to Pi's and Linux etc I have set-up your script and rebooted and all is good. Cumulus MX is running fine (I can see from the web), however as my Pi starts X Windows automatically I don't see any process box for Cumulus now. Previously when it was all manual ...

Re: HDD or SD Card for CumulusMX

OK, my boot disk is a 16Gb SanDisk Class 10. So hopefully this will prove robust. Perhaps I will refresh the SD card every few years to be on the safe side. I plan to use the start/stop script to make a backup of CumulusMX to a thumb drive each night or perhaps weekly as a belt and braces safety mea...

HDD or SD Card for CumulusMX

Hi Chaps, Firstly let me thank Steve for his awesome software. I have managed to get CumulusMX working with my new Pi2 B, however being new to Linux and Pi I have been devouring theses pages for tips. One thing that worries me is the suggestion that running a Pi on just a SD card is unwise? I have s...
