First we need to install some dependencies: At the top are the wind speed and direction sensors. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Excellent article — managed to install and get working upto the point of data coming into pi with the command testweathersation— Data comes in but when I try to move to data it creates a weather. But at least I’ll have measured the wind speed at which it collapses! I’ve made the software available as open source via the pywws project. In this instance over USB.

Soon after putting this page on my web site I received an email from Grant Gibson, who’d found this page whilst looking for info on the version he’d just bought.

Installing a USB Weather Station on a Raspberry PI Part 1 – Peter Mount’s Blog

You can read more about his installation on his blog. I mounted the N96GY wind sensors on a 32mm diameter aluminium alloy tube sold for mounting TV aerials. Presence on this list or absence from it does not mean I recommend or not the software. Installing the software Now this is based on the instructions over on dragontail.


Then when it is working with hid. The wind vanes on these stations are notorious for swinging wildly and never giving a steady ueb. I have also thought about looking at 1-wire as most of the sensors use that and you can easily get easywsather.

Never programmed python before, but i was able to edit the Hourly. This tutorial is now a few years old, so my easyweathef advice is to research how the Cython package has changed over time.

With raspian this is easy as you get prompted on the first boot to do it. Even after doing this I don’t hold out much hope of truly accurate readings. Distutils has easyweater renamed or moved.

Installing a USB Weather Station on a Raspberry PI Part 1

It consists of a suitable radio receiver which picks up the signal from the external sensors. Next we need to download and compile the latest versions of a few dependencies as the versions in the repos are not up to date. I’ve made the software available as open source via the pywws project. Easyweathher has a short list of uses for the RPi and links right back to here when it mentions ditial weather-stations.


Clas Ohlson also sell spares. It should output a hexdump of the raw data from the station.

Weather Station Software

Is this essentially the same as you guys did? Hello Peter and thanks so much for making this tutorial… I am a rookie with raspberry and linux, but following your tutorial I am trying to connect the same weather station mine easyweahher named PCE-FWSS20 with the Raspberry PI3… all fine until this point:.

Compiling Michael’s software for the router ysb the same problem. How close is your pi to the receiver? These are far too near the ground and other obstructions to give meaningful measurements, but I should at least be able to judge relative wind speed from day to day. When twitter failed last week I was going to rebuild it from scratch but easyweaather the end just updating tweetie was enough.

This is all done with a combination of Python and gnuplot. Make that change then save. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Twitter is slightly trickier but once done works well also.
