WeatherBug

WeatherBug is a site that collects live weather data from personal weather stations and makes it available on the internet. The ISY-99i is able to collect this data and use the parameters in programs.

Install

You will find access to purchase and install the module in the Help menu on the ISY Administrative Console.

Configure

Once the module is installed it must be configured. This is done from the Administrative Console Configuration/Climate panel.

Clicking the find button will open a requester and prompt you to enter your zip code. After your zip code is entered a list will open containing areas in your vicinity. Select one of these areas to open a list of nearby weather stations. The closest station will usually provide the most accurate data. Not all stations have all the data so you may wish to select a station other than the closest.

The user can select English or Metric units for data display.

You can also select a polling interval to update the data. Default is 60 seconds.

Usage

Once this is done you can begin to use the data in your programs.
