Looking for "Beta Tester" on new Multi-Station Feature

Post by admin »

We have a first beta ready that allows to connect MULTIPLE weather stations (via USB serial, USB HID, TCPIP) to a Meteobridge.
As this is really a big code change, I would prefer to have a few brave testers on this before pulling it out to the public.

Any brave volunteers? Please send your Meteobridge MAC via PM so that you are on this new code after a reboot.

First tests look not too bad. 4 connected stations:

Would this allow you connect a Raspberry Pi with a AS3935 sensor to a NanoSD so your NanoSD can get local lightning data?

Not in the first step. The former product Meteohub did allow to define "Plugins" that are user defined code which deliver data in a format Meteohub can process. These plugins can for example be a shell script that connects to some sensor and pipes lines like "lgt0total 123" to the Meteohub.
This is currently not defined for Meteobridge but can be rather easily added, once the multi-station feature is running fine.

Currently I am looking for Meteobridge users who have two or more meteobridge supported weather stations and are looking to drive those with one single Meteobridge instance.

Anybody out there? Currently I just got one user who opted in. Having been asked about that feature very often in the past, I am surprised that resonance is rather low. Beside Meteohub I don't know of any other weather program that can handle multiple stations in parallel, so we are rather unique with this :D

I take it that this is only for those people who have the standalone Meteobridge/Pro. Those of us with a Nano/SD will not be able to participate?

I own a NanoSD and also have a Raspberry Pi collecting AQI data. I don't have any additional sensors or weather stations.
