    Canadian Weather Plugin


    For all those fellow Canadians out there, or those that would like to monitor the weather in Canada, the Canadian Weather Plugin was written in VB.Net and is only supported on HomeSeer Version 2.2.0.x and newer.

    This plugin is based upon Environment Canada's web pages, and will pull the information from the web and populate the system generated devices with the proper information as shown on the web page, thereby allowing you to monitor the weather via your HS webpage. The weather can also be spoken to you using TTS on a schedule or on queue by triggering an event to occur. Email addresses are supported to send weather warnings when they are first detected. The selection of your City has been greatly improved and is now done via the gui to reduce the aggravation of manual changes to a script or ini file.

    Cost: the Plugin is Free but donations are always welcome. Might just allow me to buy the Wife some flowers to help with the hours spent programming this plugin.

    The discussion forum for this plugin can be found here.
