AerisWeather’s own PWSweather.com has been providing a beautiful, secure way to monitor, manage, and archive weather station data for over a decade. Over those years, we’ve developed an intimate understanding of the needs and functionality demanded by weather station owners from all walks of life. This information has helped extend our environmental data expertise beyond traditional weather stations to encompass more modern technologies, including Internet of Things (IoT) devices. As part of this mission to source environmental data from a diverse portfolio of devices, the PWSweather Team is excited to announce direct weather data ingestion support for AEM’s Davis Instruments weather stations on PWSweather.com.
Davis Instruments is a prominent figure in the weather station hardware market and has a proud heritage dating back to the introduction of the Digitar Weather Pro in 1988. Given this popularity, PWSweather users have been requesting a simplified way to bring Davis Instruments stations’ data into their dashboard. We’re proud and excited to deliver on that functionality.
Up until now, PWSweather users were required to interface with third-party software providers to integrate their station’s data into their dashboard. For owners of a Davis weather station, those days are now over, as developments with the PWSweather platform now allow for us to interface directly with manufacturers’ APIs, enabling live data transfer. Stay tuned for additional integrations, as more hardware partners are on the horizon.
Do you own a Davis station? Bring Your Weather to Life with PWSweather! Visit PWSweather.com to sign up for an account. After you’ve validated your email, visit your PWSweather.com Dashboard and select “Add a station”.
The next screen you’ll see will allow you to input basic information about your station. Here’s where you decide which information you’d like to share with our team. Any data you choose to share helps our support team and ensures a proper station setup.
Next, select your station’s manufacturer. The only manufacturer available as of this post’s publishing is Davis – but don’t worry, more manufacturers will be supported soon!
Next, input your public and private Davis Instruments API V2 keys. Retrieve these from the Account Information section in Davis Weatherlink (see below for visual).
After you’ve confirmed your V2 key, all that’s left to do is click “Save Station”!
For AerisWeather Contributor API Plan support, submit a ticket with AerisWeather. If you’re having difficulty connecting your Davis Station to PWSweather, ensure that it supports V2 of the Davis Instruments API. If you’re still having trouble connecting, reach out to the PWSweather support team.
We are openly recruiting new hardware manufacturers to integrate natively with PWSweather.com. Native integration with PWSweather.com offers many benefits. Among these perks: Increased demand, co-marketing opportunities, fewer technical errors, and a customizable integration based on your product offering. If you’re interested in helping your users share their data on PWSweather.com via native integrations, please get in touch with our team!
