Property "Origin" (as page type) with input value "Pledge:Weather_Station|Pledge" contains invalid characters or is incomplete and therefore can cause unexpected results during a query or annotation process.


Wireless weather station with USB output acquired by pledge. Protocol has been reverse engineered by the PyWWS project, and we'll be using this to serve the data onto the network for everyone to use.


  • Someone should take some...

Specification & documentation

  • Touchscreen wireless weather forecaster with USB link, sold by Maplin.
  • Will be connected to the network for monitoring and usage by other systems using the lovely reverse engineered PyWWS code.


  • June 10th 2013: Jonty installed the weather station up a 3m pole next to the back gate, with the help of Paddy and Charles. The receiver is on top of the internet gauge and needs raspberry-pi-ing.


While the weather station has been installed, it has yet to be connected to a raspberry pi (or other machine) and had code written to serve data onto the network.
