Netatmo Weather Station?

(Tim Slagle) #1

Hey guys,

Ya’all are much smarter than I am and im looking for some direction on this device type I want to create for the Netatmo Weather Station. Not sure if anyone has one of these but they are really awesome and in my opinion one of the most accurate “small” weather stations you can get. I didn’t have to much interest in adding this into my smartthings until i recently found out they announced a rain sensor. With that being said, i really want to create a device type for the Netatmo weather station. They also have a Thermostat that is included in there system as well.

Cool thing about all this is they have an open API. Problem with that is its all gibberish to me. I have been able to pick up some coding after getting smartthings, and groovy is just now starting to make sense to me. Plus they use PHP for all of there examples and that makes it even harder for me to understand haha. So, i guess what i am asking for is some pointers in the right direction. Im not sure how to do “get” queries with smartthings, and im also not sure how to post those queries to a tile in the device type. I tried reading over the documentation, but i was kinda getting lost again haha. I can write and app, but im having a mental block when it comes to the device types.

A nudge in the right direction and some pointers would be awesome!!! I just need to see a simple example and then i can take it from there. I’d be so grateful to anyone that could help! I have included the link to the Netatmo API below.

Again, i really appreciate anyone that can get me started!!! thanks a ton!!!

@tslagle13 I picked one up but haven’t had a chance to dive in on it. I may give it to @twack to do. He’s quite fast.

Thanks @urman!!

This would litterally complete the smartthings experience for me. Have things action off live weather read from right outside my house… The possibilited are endless!! This paried with the soil sensor and valve from PlantLink will be awesome!!!

@twack he’s our man! If he can’t do it no one can! haha

I have one as well and have been asking about getting this integrated for over 6 months. I would LOVE for this to be connected! Pretty sure the API is open, so I don’t see any reason not to do it!

Yeah, this would really seal the deal for smartthings. Such an incredible device and the options it would provide are limitless. Granted alot of the stuff can be gotten from the weather tile you can create from the weather device type, but thats all data from a weather provider. To be able to get live weather data to provide triggers for smartapps would be aweseome.

Its raining and the rain gauge senses rain… let me know if i have windows open.
the temperature outside is between 68 and 78… turn off the thermostat
Give me ive weather through my sonos when i leave.
remind me to bring and umbrella if it is raining outside of my house.
remind me to water plants when it hasn’t rained.
its hot and my windows are open… tell me to close windows… when i close my windows… turn on my thermostat.

the number of smart app i would write with this integration is incredible!

the options are endless!

Completely agree!!! I would love to do all of those things and more!

I totally agree. I have had one for awhile and just have not gotten around to trying to integrate it as well. I was looking at the API from netatmo today and may play around with it later tonight after I deal with the honeydolist. but if someone is working on it already I would love to take a look at the code and maybe contribute as well.

(Andrew Urman) #8

alright alright I’ll look into it! You got me.

(Tim Slagle) #9

Thanks @urman! You rock!!!

I use Netatmo with IFTTT to trigger alarms for high CO2. When it goes above 1500 it calls on my Hue lights to turn red. If it goes above 2000 it calls on ST to turn on siren. I hope they add the rain gauge to IFTTT. BTW Amazon has the rain gauge available for preorder.

Thanks @urman! Looking forward to it. Let me/us know if you need testers!

(Tim Slagle) #12

Valid tester here too! :slight_smile:

(Andrew Urman) #13

@Dianoga will be taking on the integration! Everyone cheer him on!

(Tim Slagle) #14

Thanks @Dianoga!!! Really excited for this intergration!!! Let me know if you need a tester.

Thanks @urman for making this a priority.

SmartThings keeps winning me over, im telling all my friends!

(Jeff DeWolfe) #15

Thanks @urman and @Dianoga! Please let me know if you need any help testing!

(Rakote) #16

I can also throw my hat in the ring for testing and or collaboration. I have preordered the rain sensor but also have several indoor modules as well as the base station and the outdoor module. Thanks @urman and @Dianoga

Anything I can help with? Any good results to report :slight_smile: Really looking forward to this! :slight_smile:

(Brian Steere) #18

Nothing to report yet. I don’t actually have the station yet (it will arrive tomorrow). I’m hoping to get some kind of integration running in the next week or so. Their API looks like it should be pretty easy to work with.

(Tim Slagle) #19


Awesome!! Yeah it is actually really easy to work with, I integrated mine into the Weather Underground API a year ago and it was pretty simple. Just don’t know groovy well enough or I would of tackled this myself.

I really appreciate your time man!

(Jeff DeWolfe) #20

@tslagle13 Do you have any documentation on integrating it with Weather Underground? I would be interested in doing this. Thanks! And thank you @Dianoga
