  • Professional local weather report in your HS3 devices. No equipment needed.

    No equipment needed. Why installing weather station if someone else did so already in your area and provides all the data free for non commercial use. Use their API and Big5 plug-in for HS3 to read and import the data in HS3 devices. Details here https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/li...uipment-needed

    This is an interesting concept. I have a question, though. I've gone to the the OpenWeather website and I do not immediately find a map of personal weather stations near my home. Is this only available after getting the api and your plugin? Thanks. Elliott

      After getting the api and plug-in you enter the latitude and longitude of your place and you'll get it. There is a filed in the response naming the area where the station is. I was surprised how close they have a station next to us. Could be coincidence or they have a very good coverage. API is free and the plug-in is free for 30 days so you don't risk anything but 20 min of your time.

        ... and BTW once you learn how to tackle APIs you can integrate anything with your HS3 from geo-fencing to your car. You'll be surprised how many things around are API driven. Here is a list of publicly available APIs https://www.programmableweb.com/apis/directory courtesy John245
