    After a little research I've learned that the Ambient Weather WH31SM is recognized by a GW1000 so I've ordered several of those. A little more expensive than the WH51 but readily available here in the US and the effort I've put into the garden is way more than a few dollars.

    Hope this helps others,
    Ken

    Can anyone give me guidance on purchasing some wh51 soil moisture sensors? Amazon says "Currently Unavailable" and ECOWITT is saying I should have them delivered around July 2nd. My garden will be dead by then.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Thanks Jim. Glad you were able to find the bug and fix it.

    Okay, I found the Bug and it should not cause a problem with reporting the values to the MQTT broker for the devices that you have. Seems it was trying to calculate Relative Barometric Pressure before checking to see if it should. And because you do not have an outside Temperature sensor it could not process the formula. I will fix that in the next version.

    Hi Jim,

    The only thing I have connected right now is the GW1000. I have nothing checked on the ECOWITT Tab in Settings.

    Here's the data from the top window (PASSKEY edited out):

    POST /data/report/ HTTP/1.1
    HOST: 172.29.1.18
    Connection: Close
    Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
    Content-Length: 185


    PASSKEY=xxxx&stationtype=GW1000B _V1.6.6&dateutc=2021-04-25+15:11:04&tempinf=66.6&humidityin=49&baromrelin=29.551&bar omabsin=29.551&freq=915M&model=GW1000_Pro


    No rush on this as it's not causing any functional issues.

    Thanks again for a great utility.

    Wow. This is great. It took me all of 10 mins to get this up and running with a new GW1000. For now, that's all I have connected since I'm waiting for the other sensors to arrive.

    I noticed the following message in the application Error Log:

    15:40:47 Function: Process Relative Barometric Pressure
    Input string was not in a correct format.
    Temperature not found not for calculations

    Seems to be happening on every reporting cycle. Let me know what I need to collect to help debug this?

    Thanks,
    Ken
    I'm guessing you currently don't have any sensor reporting Barometric Pressure but do have the calculate Relative Barometric Pressure checked. If you copy the data in the top window that was received from your device and send it to me I can take a look at it.

    Currently working on an update which will allow the application to receive data from more than one device and also properly handle the Ambient Weather format as well. Been putting in to many hours at work and now that spring is here the wife has many outside project for me to complete. I hope to get back to working on the update soon.

    I'm glad you like it and find it useful. Still working on the upgrade to handle multiple devices, but it's going slow. Putting in to many hours at work and honey do projects.

    Jim, I wanted to follow up and let you know how well your software has worked for my system. After purchasing the GW-1000 I also added the soil moisture sensors and today I added the Ambient Weather WH31P sensor to monitor my pool water temperature locally.

    I'm now completely free from Internet APIs for weather sensors! Thanks again for your help.

    Ah, I misunderstood. This thread was started based on a Windows app thru MQTT, and I thought your Plugin was for a Windows-based Homeseer system, also. I'll give it a try...thank you!

    Following up: It did not work for my HS3-Pi system.

    After a little Google Translate magic I realized that your app is a compiled executable for Windows that will not work on my HS3/Pi system. Am I correct on that? I'm not very adept at compiling the source code for a Debian system, but I'm willing to try if you want to share the code.

    Thank you!

    I have made a plugin that let you get the values form Ecowitt without going through the mqtt stuff.
    Instructions is in Norwegian, but using Google Translate you should get it working.

    Edit: Since it is using an aspx-page I suspect that it will not work for Linux users.

    I just saw this thread today. I've been wanting a good, electronic rain gauge to interface with HS....I'm excited to try this, but gotta order the Ecowitt hardware first.

    Thank you for making it available, Jim!
