        Which stations

        Ultrajones,

        Does it support all major city's, which can be requested on this webpage: http://weather.weatherbug.com/Nether...6286&stat=EHAM

        Would be nice!
        Is there a document available how to set-up the package?

          I am currently working on the quickstart guide and the UltraWeatherBug documentation.

          The plug-in should work with any WeatherBug station. I tried a few stations listed in Alkmaar, Netherlands and it appears to work fine. Here is a sceenshot of one of those stations:

            Got it all setup. Very nice. I did find that I needed to restart my PC, not just restart HS to be able to configure the plug-in. Probably should have saved the error message.

            Is there a way to the the high and low forecast temp into a device? I know I can use today's, but see nothing for tomorrow's.

              Sure, I can add an option to create a HomeSeer device for the forecast highs and lows.

                That would be great! I want to set up some events depending on what the temp will be overnight, so that should do the trick.

                    Hello. If the value reported for a HomeSeer device is numeric, then the plug-in should already be rounding it and updating the HomeSeer device with that value. I'll double-check that is working as expected.

                    Regards,

                        wouldn't be more useful if the value also reported 57? After that who cares what the string says, that's just the display and should loook pretty.

                            The device string and device value do not hold the same values. You are correct, the device string would hold the temperature icon along with 57 °F. However, the device value will only contain the numeric value 57. The device value is what you should use to do temperature calculations in your scripts.

                              Very nice plug-in!

                              I also vote for the forecast temps (high and low), and forecast rain % as devices. My needs are only for tomorrows forecast. Others may need further out.

                              As an explanation to any who are interested, I am trying to set up some complex conditions for controlling a whole house fan and 2 HVAC units based on inside temps, outside temps, and forecasted temps.
