  1. Chowmain - Open Weather Agent OpenWeather is a team of IT experts and data scientists that has been practising deep weather data science since 2014. For each point on the globe, OpenWeather provides current and forecasted weather data. The Chowmain OpenWeatherMap agent brings all of this data into Control4 for use in the home automation system. This is useful for automating services within the home based upon the external environment.Features The agent utilises project's Location and Temperature scale automatically to ensure that the data you receive is specific to your project and is returned in imperial or metric Auto polls for weather information every 15 minutes Bindings for current temperature and current humidity allows you to connect to temperature display driver and other thermostat drivers Current Weather Conditions for: Sunset (time) Sunrise (time) Temperature Minimum Temperature Maximum Wind Speed (miles/hour or meters/sec) Wind Direction (degrees) Temperature (degrees celcius / fahrenheit) Pressure (hPa) Humidity (percentage) Dew Point (degrees celsius / fahrenheit) Clouds (percentage) Rain (mm) Snow (mm) Forecasted Weather Conditions for (Today & Tomorrow): Temperature Minimum (degrees celcius / fahrenheit) Temperature Maximum (degrees celcius / fahrenheit) Wind Speed (miles/hour or meters/sec) Wind Direction (degrees) Pressure (hPa) Humidity (percentage) Dew Point (degrees celsius / fahrenheit) Clouds (percentage) Precipitation Rain (mm) Snow (mm) FAQ Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver?

  2. Chowmain - Internet Weather Forecast Drivers The Forecast.io service provides free (upto 1000 calls per day) weather data and forecast. Forecast.io is backed by a wide range of data sources, which are aggregated together statistically to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location. The OpenWeatherMap service provides free weather data and forecast API suitable for any cartographic services like web and smartphones applications. Ideology is inspired by OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia that make information free and available for everybody. OpenWeatherMap provides wide range of weather data such as map with current weather, week forecast, precipitation, wind, clouds, data from weather Stations and many others. Weather data is received from global Meteorological broadcast services and more than 40 000 weather stations. The Chowmain Forecast.io and OpenWeatherMap drivers brings all of this data into Control4 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 Extra Vegetables Cumulus Weather Stations or WeatherHawk weather station drivers/hardware if you require accurate readings as this provides accurate real time local weather information.

Combine with our Advanced Announcements driver to read the weather forecast out in the morning.What hardware will this work on? This will work on any Control4 controller running oS 2.2 or later. Why have two internet weather drivers? Why not? Not all internet weather information is built equally and we want to give you the option of getting one the is the most accurate for your location. One may work better in one country than the other. Two drivers for the price of one! What happens when the API changes? The beautiful thing about the extra vegetables auto-update feature is that driver updates can be pushed out to systems. No dealer intervention needed. Rest assured that should any of these services change their API we will update the driver to match. How do I find out more information about the driver?

  3. I have a bit of a strange one, the weather app that is built in to the system changes my location randomly, earlier today it was on Newbury (where I live), then it moved me to Oxford which is 30 miles away. also the screen saver is set up to show the temp, date and media and all works ok except I get three dots . . . where the temp used to be. My dealer told me that the location has been set, can anything change it, only recent change to the system was the addition of the Sky Q and Ring doorbell driver, coincidence or cause?
  4. My Navigator displays on my legacy Flash Touchscreens are stuck on 21 degrees F (it is much warmer lately). This also shows that same temp on the 4Store app. The forecast looks fine on 4Store weather, just current temp is wrong and has been for days. Rebooting TS, even a full Director reboot hasn't helped. My understanding is that this data is pulled from a web API from weather.com (or maybe wunderground.com). All my local weather from other sources look fine. Ideas? This is on version 2.9.1.
