Class: WeatherStation
This thread is for discussion of the WeatherStation device class. We have a Weather device class for online sources, which will likely provide more information, including forecast and can handle multiple locations and such. But we need one for a local weather station.

I'm open to suggestions for what information is likely to be widely supported by such devices. It's OK if there are some things that might not be provided universally, as long as they are still common. Those drivers whose devices don't support such values can just set a default value.

There is already a driver floating around for the Davis Weather Stations.

These are the fields that it surfaces:

Anybody know some other stations and how much of the above they would support?

Netatmo makes a set of modules that make a weatherstation. The modules and the measurements they support:

Master (Indoor):

Temperature (selectable F or C degrees)
Humidity (percent)
Pressure (mbar)
CO2 (ppm)
Soundlevel (dB)



Indoor (additional modules for other rooms, after Master):


The Outdoor and Indoor modules communicate wirelessly with the Master.

The Netatmo API does not communicate directly with the Master module. Instead, the Master communicates with Netatmo's website, and you can set up credentials to retrieve data from the website. You can query the most recent measurements, max and min measurements, and also the array of measurements going back in time (if, for example, you wish to draw a graph of the day's readings) .

In addition, you can read the wifi signal strength, battery level, and other device information.

Netatmo also makes a thermostat, and is introducing a rain gauge. I have not seen these two devices.

They provide apps for iOS and Android. The apps show forecast data, but this data is not provided by the API, so the apps probably retrieve it from some other source.
+1 for Rain_Rate, WU driver could use this...

Just picked up the Ambient Wireless Weather station and second the idea of bringing in the rainfall fields in the WU driver.
