Hometroller plugin for Canadian weather?

Hi folks, can anyone recommend a Canadian weather plugin for the Hometroller Zee?
I would be giddy if I could tie events to weather notices etc.

Thanks
Steve

Thanks Freeon - is there any documentation available somewhere?
I found some steps that said to copy it to my Homeseer folder, which I did, and then the plugin appeared in my list. But after doing a restart, I still didn't see any new devices.

Did I miss some steps?

Thanks

Did you go into plugin/envcan/feeds and configured it?

I did. Don't know if I created the entry correctly.
I used
https://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/on-54_e.xml
as the Atom feed entry and then enabled it and don't know what's next.
My log file shows
Jul-20 8:06:37 PM envcan error in feed: https://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/on-54_e.xml - Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has failed.): SendFailure[/I][/I]

Are there any sample screenshots available anywhere that might help?
Am I close?
Thanks in advance

Here is a screenshot of mine. I installed it 3 years ago and haven't touched since. I don't remember all the steps I did to get it to work.

Rats - feel like I'm so close.
I tried using Toronto for a mainstream one.
Going to add Moncton since we know that works, because you're using it.
I appreciate the screenshot - helps me know I'm close.....I think.

Progress!
I entered the Moncton feed and it worked!
So the Toronto and Pickering ones weren't working.
That made me look at the version I had since there were some other posts here about feed errors that had been fixed and noticed that I was using an old version.
I just deleted it and installed 3.0.0.17 (think I had 3.0.0.4)
Fingers crossed while it reboots.

Ahhh! This version has sample feeds already in there - fabulous help!
Getting closer!

Unfortunately, only the Moncton one worked for me but is of no use to me.
For Toronto, Pickering and Montreal, my log says

Jul-21 9:02:19 AM envcan error in feed: https://meteo.gc.ca/rss/city/qc-147_f.xml - Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has failed.): SendFailure
Jul-21 9:01:16 AM envcan error in feed: https://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/on-143_e.xml - Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has failed.): SendFailure
Jul-21 8:56:49 AM envcan error in feed: https://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/on-54_e.xml - Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has failed.): SendFailure
Jul-21 8:56:00 AM envcan error in feed: https://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/ab-52_e.xml - Error getting response stream (Write: The authentication or decryption has failed.): SendFailure

Just tried Oshawa too but same error.
Seems like I'm teasingly close but out of ideas.
If anyone has suggestions, I'm all ears
Thanks

I would post in the thread for the plugin, so that there's a better chance that the author of the plugin sees your posts. FWIW, I just tried some of the feeds that aren't working for you and they do work for me. You may want to try the non-ssl link instead (ie. http://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/on-54_e.xml instead of https://weather.gc.ca/rss/city/on-54_e.xml).

Cheers
Al

HI Al, This may be a stupid question but which forum would that be? I don't seem to see a forum specifically for the EnvCan weather feed. Can you suggest the best place as I have more questions for the developer.
Thanks
