Hi,skyewright wrote:I can't speak for Boris, but a significant factor is likely to be that 1-wire is compeltely unlike other weather stations in concept. 'Normal' weather stations have a fixed purpose and provide a restricted set of data in a closely defined manner. 1-wire on the other hand is essentially a kit of low level parts that can be handled and combined pretty much how you want. The DS1820 temp sensors are relatively straight forward, but beyond that it's often a case of measuring one or more parameters and adjusting or combining them in various ways to represent various weather attributes. For example I'm aware of at least 4 distinctly different anemometer set ups!
okay, I can understand that with anemometers, but most of the sensors are simple to handle, as they returns just one number. Like the ones I'm using: Lighting detector & rain gauge - just simple counter which returns only number of pulses. Solar & UV detectors - simple AD converters, also returns only one numerical value. So, in that case, I don't think it will be more complicated to add these single value sensors than some complex weather station protocol vith number of various data...
Can you please send me some more details about your OWFS plugin? I'll take look at it and at Meteohubs plugin system to see whether I'll be able to import 1-W data to MH somehow. Because I have more sensors on 1-Wire than on regular meteo station (and the new one - 1-wire snow meter is on the way right now), ability to read 1-wire data is a core function forme. Without it, Meteohub is no way to go for me...skyewright wrote:I've managed an OWFS based meteohub plug-in and it works but it is very much a custom thing. Making it generic would require far more time than I can find. It may be that the most practical solution would be a meteohub plug-in that took output from one of the existing 1-wire systems and presented it to the meteohub system.
Thanks for your info.
