  • Weather Underground not working for me

    I've been using this plugin to connect to my Davis Vantage Vue through Weather Underground for years. However, looks like it stopped working for me on March 25. I can't figure this out. Did something change with Weather Underground on March 25? When something stops working, the first reaction is to start playing with settings, so now I'm not 100% sure where I should be.

    First question - which key do you use? When I log into my Weather Underground account and go to My Devices, I see a short 8-character key next to my device in the table. However, if I click on the API Key tab, it shows me a longer 32-character key. I've tried both, but neither seem to work. My account shows my membership is active until March 15, 2020.

    Here are the log entries I am seeing:

    Note the "Unauthorized" errors. Same error using both keys.

    Please help.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    The company that owns Weather Underground stopped the free access to their API. Since you have a weather station, you can get a new API key from WU. However, I have to rewrite all of the WU code for their new access. It will eventually provide Conditions and a 5 Day Forecast. I am working on the code to add the new WU API but it will be a few more weeks.

      Ah... That explains it. I will turn on/off air conditioning/heat manually until the new API is ready. Thanks for your efforts.

        Non-urgent question - I use the Raspberry Pi version of Homeseer. Some funkiness to the UI, especially the weatherxml pages.While troubleshooting, I tried adding new Locations. I can add them okay, but UI will never save settings added to those pages. Looks like it does, but when you navigate away and then back, changes are lost. Now I'm trying to get rid of those test locations, but clicking on the Delete button does absolutely nothing.

        This likely has nothing to do with your plug-in, but thought I'd ask anyway.

          I would also be interested in this when the new codes are written. Mine has been down since March also.

            I would suggest switching to DarkSky. They currently have the most data available for use.
