    Ecowitt WittBoy (GW2000)

    Ver - Implemented New Ecowitt WittBoy (Local) provider for GW2000 and GW1100 gateways
    List of supported sensors

    Ecowitt (and clones i.e. AmbientWeather) support four different protocols:

    1. The native Local protocol which doesn't require any configuration, using port hardcoded 46000. This protocol is implemented in my plugin by Ecowitt provider. It only works if you have single PWS.
    2. The other Local protocol is configurable and implemented by AmbientWeatherLocal provider. For this one you need to set the same port number (default 7777) in both plugin Location config and WS View. The IP Address is HS server address. Don't use port 46000 here. This protocol is better if you have multiple PWS
    3. Ecowitt Remote (Server) API - good for accessing remote stations, also provides some calculated values i.e. Dewpoint, "Feels Like" temperature, etc.
    4. New Ecowitt Wittboy All-In-One weather station with new GW2000 Gateway (This post)

    That's probably most complete protocol which works (and recommended) with GW1100 and new GW2000 gateways (not old GW1000 thought)
    All providers can be used simultaneously - i.e. create two Locations, select Ecowitt provider for one, AmbientWeatherLocal for the other one. Then you can compare both and decide which one you like more.

    Ecowitt has support forum where you can ask about your issues (of course if it's not plugin related), and check issues other users have:
