The only limit of Netatmo Weather Station is that you need a Smartphone or Tablet to view informations collected by the station. Therefore, I was unable to retrieve valuable information from Netatmo servers. Hopefully, I found this guy's blog who gave me the solution Link to blog :. A PHP code runs on remote server to retrieve in a securely maner the information from the netatmo servers and turns it into simple text data for the Arduino.
One can notice I have added on the right screen a green gauge bar the left one. It gives an indication on when the Netatmo data is going to be refreshed; The Netatmo sensors update datas on the servers every 5 minutes. Red means the wifi connexion fails.
Green means it is ok. It is only updated when the program connects to Internet to retrieve datas. The back of the screen and the transparent part are removable. These two pieces are screwed with nylon screws. So I decided to go for my own fonts. I experienced the processed in my other instructable Led Matrix Arduino Clock. I design my fonts in Excel.
Each line is 16 pixels, therefore 16 bits. So each line of the font is an INT 2 bytes. I used Excel to calculate automatically the list of INT for each digits. I have several files. One is for the internet connexion, one is for everything related to displays. I tried to comment and clean the code as much as possible. There might be some comments in french but most of it in english.
The time in the http header is GMT. I have made an automatic DST Daylight Saving Time adjustment : in France, the time changes on the last sunday of april and last sunday of october. Quite simply, you have to determine if you are the last sunday of april or october. I had troubles with the internet libraries I found, that is why I coded all the AT commands directly. I look forward for your comments, to give me ideas to enhace the system, the code of bring new ideas.
I want to build it too. I plan to buy a different screen from adafruit because it's a bit expansive. Did you succeed using Elegoo screen or another? Thank you! I've been searching for this a long time. I want to make a display for my Netatmo, but i didn't found a way to do it. RobDeVoer : thanks for your comment. The wiring is quite simple, that is why I didn't detail it. The LCD screens and Wifi chip are wired normally, there is no magic in there. Which part would you like me to clarify?
Very nice instructable Barzok, keep posting them! Will certainly use some of the ideas you have implemented. Is it possible to add schematics on how you wired the components? Nicely done, I also like your idea of creating the fonts in excel and at the same time using excel to calculate the INT for each digit. It should be protected from direct rain and sunshine as it will otherwise deliver wrong readings.
Note, you can only connect one Outdoor Module to the Weather Station. The outdoor module worked for four years, with about 6 interruptions due to radio signal problems and battery replacements. Since we did not protect it from direct rain and snow, some moisture built up inside over the 4 years and it stopped working.
The LED at the bottom blinks, once on power. Sturdy, resistant to hail and strong wind, it measures the amount of rain with a tipping buckets mechanism underneath the rain collector. Rain makes the buckets tip, and the number of tips is counted through a magnet placed on the buckets.
The rain gauge needs to be mounted horizontally, if possible between 2 and 5 feet 0,5 and 1,5 m high and 10 feet 3 m away from surrounding obstacles. Note, you can only connect one Rain Gauge to the Weather Station. Well, you do notice the age a bit on these devices, not that we actually care as long as they work. The rain collector became slightly yellowish and the shiny black housing slightly pale.
The Wind Gauge has an interesting design with no moving parts. It uses ultrasonic sensors to measure wind speed , wind direction , and wind gusts. The Wind Gauge measures the time between the moment a signal is emitted and the moment it is received, along two directions. These measurements are then merged to obtain the real wind speed and wind direction.
It is recommended to mount the Wind Gauge at the highest point possible to avoid measuring turbulences created by obstacles surrounding it, with the arrow on the unit pointing North. Note, you can only connect one Wind Gauge to the Weather Station. The youngest weather family member is now three years old. The shiny black color looks a bit pale now. We repositioned it many times trying to fix the radio connection problems caused by the combination of distance and thick walls.
A negative surprise was the water was it rain or melting snow? We noticed this of course only when we changed the batteries, but it did not stop it from functioning. A transparent plastic film beneath the ultrasonic sensors has also started to peel off, but this does not seem to affect the four ultrasonic transducers yet. Note, as the Wind Gauge reports back to the Base Weather Station and this is refreshed every 5 minutes, your real-time notifications could be delayed for this period of time.
The smartphone apps are just like the hardware well designed. The colored dashboard adapts throughout the day from blue daylight to a dark mode, with sunset and sunrise in between. A seven-day forecast separates the outdoor from the indoor dashboard. Tapping on a day in the forecast expands into a detailed seven-day forecast with temperature curves, rain probability and much more. The magic happens, when you tilt your smartphone.
You can now view a graph of each and every sensor of all of your homes and modules, including all the measurements ever recorded. The Tablet app takes advantage of the bigger screen and shows a scrollable forecast view on the right hand and a button to switch to the timeline view.
When you tap on your home in the Netatmo app settings, you will find: the name, radio signal, battery status, serial and firmware level of each of your Netatmo modules. You can invite station guests your family , so they can monitor the Weather Station and also receive notifications. There are many helpful default notifications that can be sent to your smartphone and tablet.
Additionally, you can define your personal thresholds for custom indoor notifications based on temperature, pressure, CO2, noise level and humidity. And you can customize outdoor notifications based on temperature, humidity, wind, and rain. Netatmo provides you browser access to all your weather data through a website.
Just kidding, you can find the link in the more information section below. Here comes the fun part. We can, for instance, connect our Weather Station through a smart switch with an Airwasher, to keep the humidity in a room at a healthy level. No more dry air, dry skin, and scorched sinuses during winter.
These are just some of the ideas we have implemented, the options are countless depending on your creativity and smart devices. We will cover detailed how-tos in separate posts. If you are a developer or simply want to find other smart home products which work with your Netatmo Weatherstation, check out the Netatmo Connect site link below. Well, some say the second-biggest use-case for voice assistants are weather-related questions. Alexa, of course, supports this already, but as we will see there is a difference between generic weather questions for your city and specific weather questions for your individual home.
Today's savings on all Amazon Echo devices, bundles, and accessories. You can also ask for hot, cold, warm, sunny, cloudy weather. To set up the Netatmo Weather Station with Alexa is straightforward, you just need to enable the Netatmo skill and link the accounts:. If you are just starting to use Alexa or Netatmo, the easiest way might be a lengthy conversation with Alexa:. If you want outdoor data such as the temperature or humidity simply state outside or outdoor in your request.
Otherwise, I will give you the indoor information. Well, this sheds some light, on how this skill works. Here are the commands:. Note, historical weather data seems to be limited to rain, and we only get the last hour or yesterday. If you are not lucky and as disappointed, as we are, there is a link to a Netatmo blog post below, in which they detail the history and background of the HomeKit integration for the Weather Station. To summarize: Netatmo had to update the Weather Stations circuit board to prevent it from heating up and also had to increase the flash memory, due to various Apple requirements.
Last but not least, you can create HomeKit automations based on CO2 levels or if the air quality which is a mix of CO2, humidity and temperature becomes poor. Please note, the Apple Home app does currently not support automations based on temperature or humidity!
