Internet Weather

The OpenWeatherMap service provides free (60 calls per minute) weather data and forecast. OpenWeatherMap collects data from weather stations and forecasts of meteorological services and research laboratories, combining long-term and short-term forecasts with real-time data from weather stations, processing them and immediately updates current weather and forecasts.

The Chowmain OpenWeatherMap module brings all of this data into URC for use in the home automation system. This is useful for automating services within the home based upon the external environment. Note that this is not a replacement for a personal weather station. We recommend utilising a local weather station if you require accurate readings as this provides accurate real time local weather information.
