Minor Spring Update

Today, we’re happy to announce the release of Weathercloud 10.1, a minor update that brings some more improvements for all users of the platform.

Let’s see what’s new in this version:

Enhanced Automatic Tweets

We’ve added a couple new features to make both the hourly and the new instant tweets even better:

Present weather

Hourly and instant tweets now also include the present weather along with the current data. All devices reporting temperature, dew point, rain rate and atmospheric pressure will display the present weather both on Weathercloud and in the automatic tweets.

Webcams

In addition to the present weather, hourly and instant tweets now also support webcams. If you have added one or more webcams to your device on Weathercloud, you will be able to select which of them you want to be displayed on your tweets. To do so, you need to go to the Devices page and click on Connect to Twitter in the Settings drop-down menu (the cog icon). Once there, choose a webcam by clicking on its thumbnail. Keep in mind that most web browsers no longer support webcams without secure HTTPS, so please make sure your webcam uses this protocol so that we can show it Weathercloud.

See below an example of a tweet displaying both the present weather and a webcam:


Enhanced Followers List

The followers list lets you know at a glance who added your device to their favorites. In this version we’ve improved the list by making the profile pictures slightly bigger and including the bio and category of each follower. If you haven’t added your category and bio yet, we encourage you to do so from the Profile page.


Minor Bug Fixes and Enhancements

  • Fixed the X-axis in the custom and evolution plots for proper display on mobile devices.
  • Added compatibility with GARNI 1025 Arcus, LOGIA LOWSC710SWB and UTECH FT Series and WS Series.
  • Updated the Compatible devices page to include the new supported models.

We hope you enjoy these new enhancements and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Thanks for your support and stay tuned for more to come!

  1. For me, webcam image is not been displayed. I selected the thumbnail, address is https, but it’s only the regular hourly tweet appear, no webcam image.

  3. Timothy Kelleher says:

    I have more than 1 device, how do I link them or log in ? I.e phone, iPad and a PC. It keeps on asking me to go premium on each separate one

  4. Mark Murkowski says:

    When I connect to upload it does not upload then crashes after a few minutes, no data will go through ?

  5. This comment is about Weathercloud in general. I am disappointed in that I expected to be able to reliably see weather data remotely. I have been through setup numerous times and after a few reports the system goes offline, and will only be available again when I go back to the station site many miles away and reset (which is difficult) and get it back online.

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi Robert, from your description of the issue believe that it may be related to your station since you need to reset the unit each time in order to get it back online. If the problem was on our side, once solved your station would resume sending data automatically without any action on your part.

    10.1 upgrade is much appreciated especially the improvements to the Evolution charts, I use these all the time on a smartphone and really give WeatherCloud an advantage over other weather websites/apps.
    However I find the rain chart misleading. Rainfall levels are broken down into 6 hour periods when looking at the weekly view, so 4 totals per day and when looking at the monthly view the totals are per day. This leads to the strange situation today for example, of showing the maximum rainfall for the last month being 23mm but the max for the last week being 12mm! The reason being the 12mm was only for a 6 hour period. Would be nice to see a way of comparing data between the charts, maybe by adjusting to give an indicative day, so the 12mm would be equivalent to 48mm/day. Or maybe the maximum displayed should always use the same unit, e.g. mm/hour, so the max figure in all 3 views is comparable.

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi John, thank very much you for your feedback. You need to switch to the Month view to check the rainfall daily totals. Anyway, we have noted your suggestion and will give it due consideration.

    moi je paye un abonnement et il me marque que je ne suis pas connecté, faudrait il avoir une page pour pouvoir rentrer les données, j’ai changé de fournisseur internet suis sur orange, 9 jours sans aucune données, abonnement pro pour rien

    • Weathercloud says:

      Bonjour Alain, nous vous avons envoyé un e-mail avec des instructions pour reconnecter votre station à Weathercloud. Vous pouvez saisir les données manuellement en accédant à la page Appareils et en cliquant sur Modifier enregistrements dans le menu déroulant Paramètres (l’icône d’engrenage).

    il y a des mises à jours et aucun lien pour les mettre

    Like the first comment in this blog from Frederico the webcam image is not displayed for me too. There is no “Webcam” button to turn On or Off.

  11. Craig says:

    Any thoughts to make web cam photos time lapse, would be a cool item to add to twitter update, everyone loves time lapse photos!!

  12. giano2002 says:

    From 5 hours both my devices do not update: any suggestions?

  13. Ivan says:

    In the database download feature, is there a way to get Humidity (and other data not currently in the CVS?). Thanks!

  14. John says:

    Just a quick question: If you upgrade to a Premium plan, do you see more points in your Evolution graphs? ie: not just every hour?

  15. Giuseppe says:

    hello, for some time now it is no longer indicated heat index I would like to understand if the function has been removed from the free plan or is it just my problem

  16. Jacqui says:

    In the Data export to CSV, if the Bar (hPa) is over 1000 then it only exports a ‘1’. But any figure below 1000 will export correctly, e.g. 996.8hPa. Am I doing something incorrectly?

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi Jacqui, we have checked and atmospheric pressure data above 1,000 hPa is displayed correctly in the exported .CSV file. Could you please try with a different spreadsheet software? Thank you.

  17. Olya says:

    Hi!

    Is it possible to download a .csv data from other stations apart mine? If yes, which plan should I consider for this?
    Thank you!

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi Olya, you can check the current data and the evolution graphs of the last 30 days of any station on the network. However, it is not possible to download data from other users’ stations.

    To Weathercloud
    I am relatively new to weathercloud. My question is this, when I first hooked up my system I could monitor both outside and inside conditions. I had a wifi router problem that took a few days to resolve. When I reconnected my weather station it appears as if I can no longer monitor the inside. I am a basic user for now. Thanks in advance.

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi Calvin,

      Please note that we can only display the weather variables that we receive, as indicated on our FAQ page:

      Why is my device not uploading data of all the weather variables?

      If one or more weather variables are not displayed on Weathercloud, it is due to a problem unrelated to our site.

      The first step in solving the problem is to identify whether it is related to your device (hardware) or the software you use to upload data to Weathercloud. In the first case, the missing weather variables will not be displayed on the console of your device either, while in the second case they will.

      Once you have identified the problem, we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your device or the developer of the software (in the case of third-party software) for assistance.

    Hallo,
    wie sieht es aus mit einer App für Smartphones?
    Gibt es vielleicht eine Beta-Version, die man schon mal testen kann?

    • Weathercloud says:

      Hi mk1989, our app for mobile devices is not yet available.

      In the meantime, we suggest you add our site to the Home screen of your smartphone or tablet for quick access like an app:

      • On iOS: access Weathercloud from Safari, tap on the Share button and then tap on the Add to Home Screen option (see video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLcDP7CfWyU).
      • On Android: access Weathercloud from your browser, tap on the Menu button and then tap on the Add to Home Screen option.
