ISY-994i Series INSTEON:HAM Weather
HAM Weather is a site that collects live weather data from personal weather stations and makes it available on the internet. The ISY-994i is able to collect this data and use the parameters in programs.
You will find access to purchase and install the module in the Help menu on the ISY Administrative Console.
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 City Name. After your City Name 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.
We can see what data is available in your area if you send your City and State to UDI Weather Support
Select English or Metric units. When changing the measurement units the Administrative Console must be quit and restarted.
Please do not set polling for less than 60 seconds.
Be sure the Enabled box is checked and Save your settings.
Once this is done you can begin to use the data in your programs.
