WXonline

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

This driver provides weather information and forecasts retrieved from OpenWeatherMap.

HSYCO Configuration

Add a WXONLINE I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters.

Note that the WXONLINE I/O Server doesn't count in the I/O servers license total, so you don't need an extra I/O Server license to use WXONLINE with HSYCO.


High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

Options

ID Default Values Description
gui true true enable support for the UI object and UISET actions
false disable UI support
pollinterval 10 n >= 10 the data acquisition interval, in minutes
location <id> or <lat>:<lon> ID of the target location or coordinates
key <key> OpenWeatherMap API key

The 'location' option is required. To obtain the ID of the desired location, look for it this list. Otherwise, you can specify the geographic coordinates of the location using the format "<latitude>:<longitude>" (e.g. "45.461001:9.183567"), with latitude and longitude expressed as decimal degrees.

The 'key' option can be obtained creating an account on OpenWeatherMap. If this option is not specified, a default API key will be used and the 'pollinterval' option wont't allow for values below 60.

Conditions and categories

The following table shows the possible weather condition values and their categorization.

Categories are used to summarize relevant aspects of a specific condition so to simplify programming logic. The available categories are: clear (c), precipitation (p), storm (s), partly cloudy (pc), and low visibility (lv). For some conditions (e.g. “windy”) the categorization is not feasible; in such cases (denoted by "xx") the category datapoints will not be updated so to maintain the previous condition.
