The eagle-eyed will notice a new menu option on the left there; for Bloomsky weather. This is a new weather station that knows about temperature, humidity, pressure, UV, and it has a camera in it. This means you can get a look at the sky conditions above our house, and watch time-lapse videos from the last five days. The camera is active from sunrise to sunset.
I don't know if anyone noticed, but we haven't had wind speed readings for some months. And a few weeks ago, a large bird must have sat on the anemometer again since it's now tilted at 45 degrees to vertical. And since it's on the roof, it is pretty much inaccessible. So I ordered a new one, and have installed it at the top of the pole on which the other sensors are located; about eight feet off the ground. It might not be quite as accurate as a sensor 30 feet up, but it's a lot better than no readings at all.
We are back in business! The new transmitter unit finally arrived and is now installed. Hopefully all will be well from now on.
Something has attacked the outdoor sensors; the transmitter unit door was open and the whole box loose on the mount. We have lost readings for all outdoor weather except wind (since that is a separate unit). I'm trying to dry out the circuit board over the next couple of days since it was soaking wet - I assume that is why we lost readings - but if that doesn't work we will have to order a new one. Stay tuned...
The tilt on the wind sensor has been fixed.... I am hoping it is still pointing in the same direction. I think it is. So at least the wind speed should be accurate again.
We have replaced the failed anemometer transmitter unit, and we now have wind speed readings again!
Moved to new software: WeatherCat - which has much more comprehensive reporting and data export, enabling us to reactivate this website properly. New wind sensor is on order.
