Weather radio don't want connect

Hello Wolfgang,

sorry for the response time, it was really nice.
Everything is functional except for one detail!
I created the service and the server starts well. However, despite this I have to go through my iNDI app on my phone.
To be more cair, this application allows you to see all the INDI servers running. Except, that of weather radio is active but not connected. So I do it manually just like I would in kstars.
Suddenly, the interest of the service becomes limited.
Is there anything else to do to make sure that when the service is started it automatically connects the arduino without having to go through the phone application?

Otherwise, apart from that everything is functional and really very good !!

Many thanks for all this work!

Hi Olivier,
the script wr_rrd_update.py should automatically connect to the weather radio service. Check if this script is working as expected - you can run it with the option "-v" to get more verbose output.

Maybe there is a wrong parameter in wr_config.py.

Thanks for you response.
I will try this.
If i don’t see pb, i will send you my file if you can to look!
I have just change the name of port (ttyUSB0 to Weather beacause I created a symlink)
And in the service I change root to nafa, this is the name of the user

Olivier,
I‘ll send you a PN with my email address so that we can communicate directly.

Wolfgang, after going through the source code for Meteostation and just having pitchased all the bits for the old project, I see you’ve done some great work to build your own updated version with an SQM, wireless and a website! I love it!

Is there a project page where we can learn how to DIY? This is a hugely important project Ithink!

I should say I would also like to try adding a (heated) rain sensor if you haven’t already. I don’t want to shut down my observatory when cloudy as I get intermittent clouds and can image pretty well even throwing out 25-50% of frames, but I can’t afford the dome to be open in the wet.

I was thinking that perhaps the UNO generates enough heat to keep it dry enough.

My other thought was to merge into an AllSky dome and use a heater that’s relay controlled for both dew control and rain sensor.

Yes, indeed, there is a documentation available here: github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/blob/ma...adme-WeatherRadio.md

Integrating a new sensor is not that difficult:
  • add the new driver to the firmware following the logic of the other sensors
  • changing the INDI server

One of my next steps will be a rain sensor, probably a RG-11 (rainsensors.com) or a DYI version with distance sensors.

Regarding heating: I have a wooden housing for the Arduino and the Raspberry Zero which absorbs quite well the humidity. I think the Zero produces enough heat to keep the acrylic dome clear.

But be aware that housing even without heating influences temperature and humidity sensors. My first attempt was a wooden housing with blades for air circulation was a flop, since both temperature as well as humidity was far from correct.

My current solution is a plastic housing that contains only the sensors, which is far better.

Weather Radio supports these sensors as well. If you add a TSL2591, you have a SQM meter on top. Together with a Wemos D1 mini it fits fine in a small housing .

Hi,

This is my box:
2 holes:
- mlx90614
-tsk2591. There is a glass which protect the sensor about the rain.

Thanks Wolfgang! Unfortunately searching for INDI DIY weather stations either takes me to the old Meteostation, which is nice but getting old now, or random bits! Thus is great!

Probably one of the most important and well thought through INDI Hardware projects out there! I’d love to see INDI hardware make its way into the core of INDI, for a moderate amount of money we can almost all afford to have great instrumentation. Love it.

I’ve ordered some of the new parts, hoping to beta test tomorrow and go intro production later this week.

I’ll take a look at the sensor you mentioned.

Trying to install the Weather Radio WEB interface but I get the following error message that I can't figure out: ERROR: Module weatherradio does not exist!. I followed the installation steps and everything went fine until I issued the "sudo a2enmod weatherradio" command.

Any hints?

Thanks/
