Tempest System Installation

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Tempest System Installation

Post by Albert Dulfer »

I have just installed a new Tempest weather system Almost everything is working, but I get the message

Error downloading tempest history: {"status":{"status_code":401,"status_message":"UNAUTHORIZED"}}
Normally indicates incorrect Token

when starting Cumulus.
I would be grateful for any assistance as I do not know how to solve this. Attached is my .ini file and the MXdiags folder.

I have removed your Cumulus.ini file - please do not post that file as it contains your usernames and passwords.

Looking at the contents of Cumulus.ini though, I see that the entry from WeatherFlowToken = "api token".

I do not know the WeatherFlow systems, but your token is likely to be some long random string of letters and/or numbers. You will need to get your personal token from the WeatherFlow web site. Other than that I'm afraid I know nothing more about their systems.

Albert,

If you go to the tempest site online: https://tempestwx.com/settings (and login)

Down at the bottom you will see a "Data Authorizations" section. Click on that and then click on "Create Token". This is the token that you'll need to enter in the "Security Token" field in order to retrieve historical data.

You'll also need the "Device ID" of your Tempest station which can be found by going to the same site, then "Settings", "Stations", (select your station), "Status". Then down in the bottom section of the page is the "Device ID" field.

Good Luck,

Doug
