Weather

The weather devices gives the condition of rain, outdoor temperature and humidity. Rain is set as a binary sensor and will be marked true if any variety of rain is detected including drizzle. Temperature and humidity are shown as multi-level sensor. This allows for graphing the data over time to view trends.

This device requires the install of the Python Weather API.

Configuration options are set in /etc/opt/agocontrol/conf.d/weather.conf:

[weather]
locations_ID=ITLM2916
tempunits = f
waittime = 300
  • locations_ID - the city/location to be monitored. This value is either a five digit US zip code or an international location id. This value can be determined by reading the information at this link
  • tempunits - show values in Fahrenheit (f) or Centigrade (c)
  • waititime - amount of time in seconds to wait between updates
