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 resolution 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

  • adds support for weather network Meteonews
  • adds support for weather station Lufft WS600

Version 2.4

released November 16, 2014

  • fixes a bug computing rain rate for Vantage stations connected via Meteostick. Previous computation was factor 10 too low. As rain rate is recorded together with rain totals, update might hang a few seconds behind compared to what Davis console displays.

released November 15, 2014

  • fixes a bug computing sea level pressure for WMRS200 stations.

released November 9, 2014

  • fixes a bug in the "stickupdate.cgi" script.

released November 7, 2014

  • fixes a bug that prevents from assigning additional Davis sensors a transmitter ID when used with Meteostick.

released November 4, 2014

  • adds percentage of good RF reads vs RF noise in case of Meteostick usage. Percentage is displayed in signal column of indoor sensor. Values below 1% are considered as difficult RF noise conditions. RF good vs noise ratio can be improved by better placement of Meteostick (using the USB cradle) and reducing Meteostick RF sensitivity.


released November 2, 2014

  • WS1000/HP-1000 outdoor multi-sensor units from Ambient Weather/Fine Offset are now fully supported by Meteostick. Support just covers the outdoor sensor unit, air pressure is given by Meteostick. This version allows the Meteostick to drop its binding to an initially found WS1000 sensor unit. This can be done manually by a checkbox on "Select Station" tab or will be done automatically after a series of failed attempts to connect with the unit. Sensor unit IDs change when sensors are power cycled. Therefore, it needs a mechanism to bind to these IDs (which is done automatically) and to unbind again, when unit with another ID (or changed ID) should be listened to. In order to have Meteostick supporting WS1000 you have to update its firmware to version 2.0 by calling this URL: "http://<ip_of_your_meteobridge>/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi"


  • further improves RF reception reliability of Meteostick for WS1000 sensor units.
  • delays sending of weather data until all main values (outdoor temp, outdoor hum, pressure, rain rate, wind speed, wind direction) have been provided by the weather station. Wait ends after a minute to allow uploading in situation where some data is missing because of sensor defect etc.
  • supports new Ubiquiti Unifi cameras (not the pro series). Remark: Snapshots have the Ubiquiti logo as a watermark in the lower right. At the moment we can't say if we can remove this watermark logo with coming SW updates.


released October 26, 2014

  • eliminates wrong "needs a USB hub" warning on "Select Station" tab, when using a Meteostick.
  • adds experimental support for reading RF data via Meteostick from Fine Offset HP-1000 (Ambientweather WS1000) outdoor sensors (US and EU version). This needs update of Meteostick firmware to version 2.0 beta.
  • introduces easy firmware updates for Meteosticks by any Meteobridge. Just browse to "http://<ip_of_your_meteobridge>/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi" to have the Meteostick flashed to newest firmware. When you want to flash a distinct firmware version, you can add version number as URL parameter. As an example: "http://<ip_of_your_meteobridge>/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi?2.0beta" flashes version 2.0 beta to the Meteostick.

released October 23, 2014

  • fixes bug in windchill computation for wmr200.

released October 21, 2014

  • minor optical bug fixes regarding new "deactivate push services" feature.
  • "i" icon on "live data" tab shows history of events triggered by alarm definitions.


released October 20, 2014

  • Windfinder logo now points to sing-on page of Windfinder network.
  • adds a feature that allows to deactivate a push services definition without deleting it (still beta). Simply select "off" from drop-down menu of the event to be deactivated.



released October 19, 2014

  • adds indicator if USB hub is connected to platform string on "System" tab.
  • adds English overlay texts for Aircam 1.1 and 1.2/3.x but using ISO instead of imperial units.
  • fixes a bug that deletes user settings that contain a "x_" sub string.
  • adds location information to system tab based on the WAN IP address.
  • fixes a bug that stops data logging process when alarm condition has empty raise or clear condition.
  • makes use of rain rate as send from Davis rain gauge via RF when operating with Meteostick (no longer doing Meteobridge specific computations).
  • fixes a bug that fires incremental alarms although one-time alarm invocation was defined.
  • adds modulus operator and arithmetic functions to be used for definition of alarm trigger conditions (see here).

released October 8, 2014

  • adds red comment on "i" icon text when alarm is triggered and puts green comment in, when alarm is resetted. This allows a better understanding how evaluated conditions trigger actions.

Version 2.3

released October 8, 2014

  • modifies evaluation of trigger events in a way that does not trigger when clear condition is met (in that case it skips raise condition evaluation)
  • adds firing of trigger event to "i" icon condition evaluation history and allows to show latest 24 evaluations (instead of 8 before).

released October 2, 2014

  • fixes a bug on day change, where today/yesterday variables are not properly set for the very few seconds
  • reworks expressions handling of alarm conditions and removes some bugs regarding expression evaluation. Changes are in detail:
    • Variables can be used with or without enclosing square brackets. If used without, please make sure there is a blank before and after the variable. Apart from this, there is no need for separating operators etc by blanks.
    • Variables can use all defined qualifiers, like "th0temp-act=F.0:0".
    • There is no longer a distinction between simple and complex conditions.
    • Logical operators in expressions for "and" are "&" or "&&", both have the same meaning, some with "or" which can be "||" or "|".
    • The "i" icon shows history of latest evaluation of raise and clear conditions. To get more recent history reload "Push Services" tab by clicking onto the tab and then going back to the "i" icon.
    • The "i" icon also lists errors during condition evaluation.


released September 28, 2014

  • allows additional temperature/humidity sensors for supported ELV/Conrad and LaCrosse stations.
  • fixes a bug in clearing alarms on certain conditions

released June 28, 2014

  • complete rework of "Push Services" tab that separatea SERVICES (mail, twitter, ftp, mysql, etc) from EVENTS that can be triggered periodically, on distinct times or on alarm conditions. This Flexibility allows to define multiple emails, http requests as events on defined channels. You can stick to the old way of defining "push services" by sticking to Version 2.2 on "System" tab.
  • adds automatic IP suggestion for a connected Ubiquity AirCam.
  • fixes a bug reading invalid barometer values from PeetBros Ultimeter stations.

Version 2.2

finalized June 18, 2014

released June 15, 2014

  • does an automatic search for Davis Vantage IP data loggers in the current class C network and provides a list of found WLIP data loggers to choose from when weather station Davis Vantage selected. Check of potential 255 IP addresses is done after each reboot and may take a few minutes. When you connect a WLIP, do a reboot of the Meteonridge and wait 5 minutes after reboot, then browse to "select station" tab and if there is a WLIP in your class C network, the IP address will be provided as an option to select from.

released June 14, 2014

  • adding support for battery-powered TP-Link router TL-MR3040

released June 12, 2014

  • allows to define frequency of uploads of the WLIP data logger to Davis Weather Link service: every minute, every 5 minutes, every 10 minutes, never.

released May 5, 2014

  • adds a feature to calibrate wind direction
  • enlarges buffer for historical data of last 60 minutes to even cover wind data coming in every 2 seconds
  • reduces storage for data buffering when used with Meteoplug cloud services a bit, to avoid troublesome low memory situations

released April 20, 2014

  • better detection of maximum gust values for Davis Vantages by making use of LOOP2 packets and fixing the wrong documentation Davis does provide for "maxgust 10min".
  • improves wind reporting intervals for Davis Vantage (down to every 2 seconds) even when using LOOP and LOOP2 packets synchronously. Also adding code that makes sure no wind gust is omitted, even when LOOP packet live data did not catch it up.
  • adds an option to version control on "system" tab which forces booting from USB stick instead of downloading application stack and historical data from the Internet. USB stick just needs to be FAT32 formatted and being inserted into USB hub on Meteobridge. When you then do a regular reboot the downloaded application stack will automatically be stored on USB stick. On next reboot this image will be used when told to do so by setting "try USB first" on version control drop-down options.
  • applies standard correction for indoor temp sensor in the Meteostick of 6.7°C to roufhly compensate for heat emission of other components inside the stick.
  • fixes bug in calculating rain rate for Acurite USB stations
  • new weather underground logo

released April 14, 2014

  • These Meteobridge platforms have been tested to work reliable with Meteostick without need of an USB hub. Precondition for TP-Link devices (TL-WR703N and TL-MR3020) is, that they have been flashed with newest 1.4 firmware.


released April 11, 2014

  • a connected Meteostick can be updated to newest Meteostick firmware by browsing "http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi" (please don't type this literally, but insert the LAN IP of your Meteobridge)
  • adding feature to determine sensitiveness of RF reception of Meteostick

released April 6, 2014

  • introduces improvements on Meteostick regarding RF reach and computation of rain rate
  • removes warnings on missing USB hub for certain stations when firmware 1.4 used
  • adds signal strength on live data tab when using a Meteostick

released March 29, 2014

  • introduces support for Meteostick, a Davis weather station RF receiver in the form factor of a USB stick. Details about Meteostick can be found here.

Version 2.1

finalized March 22, 2014

  • introduces a new firmware for TP-Link MR3020 platform that no longer needs a USB hub to connect to majority of USB devices. To do a firmware update of your TP-Link MR3020 do the steps outlined at the end of this paragraph, but please keep in mind that you do this at your own risk. In the unlikely event that you brick the unit by this, it is your damage. If you don't want to take the risk, stay with the current firmware. Updating firmware does not void your Meteobridge license, your unit will stay licensed as it has been before, but it will delete all your local settings, so you are again back to factory defaults after this.
    • download firmware 1.4: meteobridge-tl-mr3020-v1.4.bin
    • browse to "http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/cgi-bin/fwupdate.cgi" (please don't type this literally, but insert the LAN IP of your Meteobridge)
    • insert your Meteobridge web interface password
    • unselect "keep setting" flag
    • browse to downloaded 1.4 firmware
    • press "flash image" button
    • confirm on next page and wait until Meteobridge reboots (will take 2 minutes).
    • as a side effect all settings you made so far are lost, so you have to restart your configuration from scratch again
  • TP-Link WR703N also has a USB fixed firmware version 1.4 available: meteobridge-tl-wr703n-v1.4.bin. Procedure to update firmware is identical to MR3020 as explained above.

released March 16, 2014

  • adds humidity calibration. It is working that way that you can specify which reading from your hum sensor should be recognized as relative humidity of 0% and which reading should equal to 100%. Values in between will be scaled accordingly. Range of results is limited to range from 0 to 100.
  • fixes some shortly introduced bugs around temperature and rain calibration.

released March 15, 2014

  • adds offset correction option to outdoor temp sensor
  • adds factor correction option to rainfall sensor

released February 27, 2014

  • some slight storage usage optimizations to give Meteobridges connected to a "Accurite Internet Bridge" a bit more of RAM headroom, which is needed for uninterrupted Meteoplug upload use. Reading data from the "Accurite Bridge" pushes Meteobridge to the limit as it needs a rather large library being loaded to intercept the TCP/IP traffic and to sniff the weather data payload from the TCP/IP packets.

released February 20, 2014

  • fixes a bug in regard to indoor temp/baro data of Acurite USB weather stations

released February 14, 2014

released February 5, 2014

  • changes FTP upload timeout from 10 to 20 seconds in order to support uploads via low bandwidth Internet connections
  • fixes a timezone related bug regarding daily rain upload to CWOP

released January 27, 2014

  • includes URLs to predefined Meteoplug graphs into template feature. Variables are "mbsystem-graphA", "mbsystem-graphB", ..., "mbsystem-graphH". Details can be found here.

released December 26, 2013

  • fixes a bug in regard to sealevel pressure values uploaded from Meteobridge to Meteoplug cloud graphing. When you suffered from inconsistent sealevel pressure values on Meteoplug service, then please also issue a "recompute all data" on your Meteoplug "inspect data" page (do that about 15 minutes after you did reboot the Meteobridge to make sure the basic new settings have been transferred to your Meteoplug account).

released December 18, 2013

  • provide a way to set date/time automatically to current values even when behind a firewall that blocks outgoing ntp requests

released December 15, 2013
