    Thank you Robin. Highly appreciated.
    Lol, good one.

    Your welcome.
    First let's find out if Athom agrees that it's safe and after that, if it's stable

    This looks awesome Robin! Sounds like Buienradar++++. Can't wait to try this. Any link to the source so we can already play around with this?

    Also, have you implemented a speech interface? As in, can I ask Homey "What's the weather gonna be like tomorrow?"?

    Thanks! I hope so!

    Yes of course, sorry, forgot:
    https://github.com/Inversion-NL/nl.inversion.wunderground

    No, no speech as of yet.

    Not a big deal: I don`t think there are negative values for UV, that would mean absorbing. The UV index is normally between 0 and 15.

  • RobinVanKekemRobinVanKekem Backer - Homey
    I know, noticed it also.
    But that's what I get from Weather Underground.
    Don't know why though.
  • ZperXZperX Member
    Since last night the weather data haven`t been updated

  • RobinVanKekemRobinVanKekem Backer - Homey
    No problem here.
  • woeiwoei Member
    Awesome, will start playing around with this. Quick question, what happens with UV if there aren't any sensors in my area which report this? Will it still get the closest reading somehow?
  • RobinVanKekemRobinVanKekem Backer - Homey
    Don't know how Weather Underground solves this.
    What info do you get when entering your location in their website: https://www.wunderground.com/ ?
  • Great stuff Robin, looking forward to the current condition trigger so it can completely replace the (bugged) buienradar app ... :wink: 
  • Great that you made a WU app! In the setting i chose to use Homeys location. But I see no data on the insights-page. When I check https://www.wunderground.com/wundermap/, I see multiple weather stations close to my address, bu I don't know witch one the app is using.

    Maybe it is an idea to add an option to manualy fill in the number/ID from the weather station? Just like with Domoticz: https://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Virtual_weather_devices
  • RobinVanKekemRobinVanKekem Backer - Homey
    I get a lot of crashes but I'm not sure why since all is fine when I test.
    @keverjeroen, do you know how to install the app manually when downloaded from Github?

    Negative values will be solved in a later version  :)

    How can I use wind in a flow guys, not seeing it here...
  • Looks like the app doesn;t work with me. No data when I check insights....

    Same here, either with my own API key, or no API key when I am using the location of Homey. I have now changed it to manual location and entered "The Netherlands" and a village nearby and it just started to pull in information.
  • Where do I get my own API key?

    @RobinVanKekem Compliments! Wunderground is working great. Installed it today; first Insights results in attachments


  • Fire69Fire69 Backer - Geek Edition
    Seems to be working ok here too :)

    Just 1 question and 1 remark:
    - I set it to metric, temperature degrees are correct but it's indicated as °F :)
    - How does wind direction work when you only have numbers in Insights? Or it that what will come in the next update?
  • woeiwoei Member
    It seems it only fetched one or two datapoints on my homey. I have a flat line that doesn't continue. Any way I can trigger or debug it?

    I get a lot of crash reports where the received data from Weather Underground is empty.
    Tried several locations myself but all where fine.
    I really don't get it.

    Is there any way I can gather data for troubleshooting? Packet captures?

    Download from github (link in first post).
    Use instructions from here: https://developers.athom.com/library/getting-started/

    Use the 'athom project --run' to see the output. Please post screenshot of output so I can see.

    Apparently it is working for some...

    Nice, I'm happy it's at least working for some :smile: 
    But damn, where do you live? Such a low humidity!?
