Is it easier / better to use the GW-1000 I see you guys talking about? or are you sending the data via the console to ambientweather, then your pulling it back via the API to update your own site? I think I'm lost here?
The GW-1000 would plug into the computer like my current setup, pick up the data from the sensors and MX would pull it directly the way it currently is now from the WS-2080 console, correct? This sounds like the way to go then.

Cumulus pulls the data direct from the GW1000, it cannot pull from AmbientWeather.com

The GW1000 connects via WiFi, it does not have to be plugged into your computer - it just uses the USB connector for power.

The next release of Cumulus MX will have direct (possibly experimental) support for newer Ambient consoles that have the ability to configure a Custom upload server.
