Meteobridge is a device that is easy to use and which should not raise a demand for extensive support. However, there is a forum, where you can share experiences, questions, wishes with other users.

Please make use of this in favor to emails, as a wider public can participate of your insights and problem resultion recipes.

Forum is part of Meteohub Forum: Meteobridge Forum

Release Log

To get the latest release running on your rig, just do a reboot or power-cycle. Chapters below illustrate new features and bug fixes that have been realized in current and previous releases.

In the Works

  • virtual vantage

Version 1.9

releases Spetember 19, 2013

  • fixing rain data issue with ws550 and clones

released September 11, 2013

  • adding support for weather network "Weatherflow"
  • adding support for weather network "wetter.com"
  • addind support for storing latest application stack and historical data on a USB stick. This provides a fall-back position when Meteobridge server cannot be reached and will allow Meteobridge operation in a stand-alone manner, without any need for server interaction. Just plug-in a FAT32 formatted USB stick and this feature will go live. Boot from USB is done, when Meteobridge fails during boot for about 10 minutes to load application stack from Internet.
  • fixes a bug preventing from initialization of Ubiquiti AirCams
  • experimental support for additional HW platform: D-Link DIR-505

Version 1.8

released August 17, 2013:

  • fixes a bug that can make send to weather networks stall
  • adding variable "forcast-rule" and "forecast-text" to report rule number and English forecast text in case you have a Davis Vantage connected. Alternative languages are also supported:

released August 11, 2013:

  • adds 3 additional temp/hum and temp sensors to be evaluated for Oregon WMR-928/968
  • fixes a bug that prevents from applying manual pressure correction done with Meteobridge to Meteoplug uploads as well
  • adding an iPhone url that shows personal weather data in two modes
    • landscape: dials and gauges, with update frequency down to 10 seconds
    • portrait: list of weather data from now, today and yesterday
  • added a another two graphs for iPhone where temperature, humidity, pressure, wind and rain data for today and yesterday are displayed.

released August 4, 2013:

  • allows to add a date/time stamp (like "@15:23" or "@2013-3-15 13:24" when changing min/max values manually. date/time string has to be second parameter (following the value to change) and has to start with a "@". Evaluation of number blocks inside date/time stamp start at the end with "minutes", then "hour", "day", "month", "year". blocks omitted will be replaced by current data.
  • adds "Meteoplug Cloud Graphing" as an option to send weather data to. This allows to log every single piece of data the weather station does hand over to Meteobridge onto Meteoplug cloud and to provide a wide range of user-defined graphing options for it. Provides Live-Data dashboard in the Internet for your station as a free add-on from Meteoplug cloud service (no subscription required for this).
  • add a more powerfull trigger mechanism for alarms, that supports evaluation of arithmetic and logical expressions
  • adds support for weather station HomeMatic WDC 7000

Version 1.7

released July 27, 2013:

  • fixes bug that "erase" button on live data page does not clear historical data under certain circumstances

released July 26, 2013:

  • allow for update interval down to 5 seconds for http requests
  • fixes a rain cumulation error when not January set as month for "annual rain start"

released July 21, 2013:

  • resets Meteobridge back to "Factory Defaults" when pressing the reset button until LED blinks for 5th time. Meteobridge will reboot automatically.
  • supports Acurite Internet Bridge device on experimental level. Meteotridge needs to be in WLAN mode and must have "LAN Bridge" option enabled. Acurite Internet Bridge has to be directly connected to Meteobridge via Ethernet cable. This setup allows to use all features Acurite did put into Internet Bridge and to feed Meteobridge which gives even more options to make use of your weather data. Acurite 5in1 sensor and extra temperature sensors are supported.

Version 1.6

released July 19, 2013:

  • update to twitter API 1.1 as currently used API 1.0 has been switched-off by twitter. You will have to repeat authentification sequence once to get your Meteobridge registered to API 1.1.
  • patch to low level WH1080/2080/3080 weather station code that should prevent from false recording uv/lux values with non uv/lux equipped stations.
  • fixes a bug that makes "Push Services" tab break under certain conditions.

released June 24, 2013:

  • fixes a timezone bug on TP-Link platforms
  • resets USB controller on TL-MR3020 when USB connection does not deliver data for a longer time

released June 22, 2013:

  • fixes a bug that impacts correct start/stop of datalogger when connected to an acurite station.
