HC 2






Weather state & forecast VD enhance HC2 weather capabilities. Weather state VD works with two most popular weather services OpenWeatherMap and Weather Underground bringing new level of weather current state and forecast to Fibar Group Home Center 2 users.


There is a bug in Weather State VD v2.3 Update button code that prevents it from functioning properly. I have updated package with corrected version 2.3.1. For users that already downloaded VD it is possilble to insert following line of code to Update button code at line 71:

local weekdaymap="Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday"}

Sorry for the inconvenience.


  • Fibaro Home Center 2 with firmware 4.160 and above with installed Weather provider plugin set as main weather provider


  • Works with two most popular weather services on the planet
  • Regularly refreshes weather state and forecast
  • User can setup when forecast push and popup notifications will be sent
  • Can install more than one set of VD’s and follow weather for more than one place
  • It is now separated from Netatmo weather station but can still display Netatmo measurements
  • User can add additional sensors for lux, UV, temperature, humidity, soil temperature and soil moisture
  • Automatically finds weather provider plugin if installed and can then update weather on the HC2 web GUI and mobile applications
  • VD has built in multi-language support with 28 languages included (see APPENDIX 1 for the list). VD can use HC selected language or user can select any other available language. VD will be automatically translated to selected language (visible after refreshing page on browser or refreshing network data on Fibaro mobile application)
  • Easy setup for VD icons (on UHASTM compatible version is this even easier)
  • Global variables are automatically added, monitored and repaired and does not require user intervention


Delete older version of Weather State VD and then follow installation instructions in provided User manual

Thanks to Werner report I have checked and found that daily reports really does not work anymore with free API keys. I'm not sure when this is changed since never informed me about changes but API keys generated a year ago should still work. I'm working on major update of Weather State & Forecast VD and as soon as it is finished will publish it here. Thank you for support and understanding.


Hi, i cant install the VD, cause i can`t download the file...


Hello Werner, Weather forecast is working for me for over one year with free API key from It is possible that they changed in the meantime what is available for free but I never get notice from them and didn't check lately since it is still working for me with my free api key. Thanks for reporting. Will investigate and do corrections to VD if found necessary


Weather forecast VD is not working with the free API of 5 day weather forecast. Probably it's working with 16 days forecast but it cost 40 USD per month.


Thank you for reporting error. I have updated package with corrected code. It is also possible to add missing line of code to Update button to make it work properly.
