OpenWeather weather provider

An alternative to YR weather provider, that is default weather provider for HC3.

Beside weather provider, it allows to create couple other companion devices (sensors) that show current values for:

  • Temperature
  • Wind
  • Rain
  • Pressure
  • Humidity
  • Cloud cover
  • UV index
  • Time of sunrise
  • Time of sunset

Data updates every 1 hour.

Configuration

Main device requires only an APIKEY to be specified. APIKEY can be obtained from OpenWeather API keys page.

To enable companion devices, just toggle them using buttons.

Configuration will be saved into global variables which guarantee persistance of devices selection.

Optionally, you can change Source variable value to OneCall, that will use previous data endpoint. Using default value of Weather, uses new endpoint, that doesn't require paid subscription.

Forecast

Quick application allows to use forecast up to 48 hours ahead. To adjust the forecast offset, use the slider.

Changing weather provider

To change default weather provider you need to go to Settings page and click General category. On displayed page you should see section called Main Sensors with Weather provider dropdown, that will let you pick OpenWeather Station as your new source of information.

To see changes in top bar, you need to refresh Home Center UI.

Hi. Would it be possible to make a QuickApp to get data from Wuderground.com?

HC3 does not change the time of day. There is still an icon of the day. Maybe an idea?

It does not work out of the box anymore. You need to switch to API 3.0 version, which will require credit card payment methd to be added and changes in the LUA code to align with new API 3.0. By default the App is using API 2.5, that will not work. Please note that using One Call 3.0 requires a separate subscription to the One Call by Call plan. Learn more here https://openweathermap.org/price. If you have a valid subscription to the One Call by Call plan, but still receive this error, then please see https://openweathermap.org/faq#error401 for more info."
