DTH= Device Type Handler that allows ST to communicate with the BS
I didn’t see any details, but I’m hoping that it is for mounting it over the peak of the roof. My BS is about 20 feet below my peak so it should be within the range that the storm and BS can communicate with each other.
When I first heard about this product I was dead set against it. For 100 bucks though it would be really cool to add to my BS. Anybody have a feeling they might do for this what they did previously for ST users?
Since @Yongfeng_Zhang hasn’t been seen around the forum in months, I’m just ass-u-me-ing that once the DTH and app were completed & working that BS lost interest in any special deals with ST. Giving away a couple hundred units was cheaper than hiring or contracting someone who knew how to integrate with ST. He admitted that they had tried to get it to integrate with ST and gave up on the project, went to IFTT channel instead.
We all know that if sky or BS2 need a change in the code it will come from this community and not from BS.
The UV sensor was moved to the Storm and apparently sits straight up for more accurate UV readings, rather than at an angle. I also noticed that the storm has a built-in level. Not sure how easy it’ll be to get that thing level.
I was able to buy both the Sky2 and Storm for $229 (including shipping) because I signed up for their email alert for Kickstarter.
I’m personally more intrigued by it. Only downside to the bloom it has in my opinion is that it doesn’t have a camera. But it does have (albeit limited) local storage for if you lose internet connection, and they’re also building an indoor air quality sensor. Anyone else have any input about it?
My complaint is the alleged 1 year warranty and it dies in 6 months ( first barometer and now battery ) and they won’t reply to my emails. Seems all they are concentrating on is the BS2/Sky and left BS1 owners out to dry.
