with WU no longer available took a quick pass at porting my apixu driver original created for HE. more on that driver here:
UPDATED 4.0: added WU mappings and some forecast data for next day. UPDATED 3.5: added temperature, pressure and humidity capabilities. UPDATED 3.0: updated with code contribution from @jebbett to use some cool weather icons. UPDATED 2.5: added...

this is an alpha version … pretty much a straight port of the HE version with a couple of tiles added for ST. i expect to add the same tile layout as
@takissd had for his SmartWeather Station Tile 2.0 which i used to use on ST prior to WU doing their thing.
off course since i use local outdoor lux value with settings for various rooms in my rooms manager app this driver publishes a robust but calculated value for outdoor lux that you can use with rooms manager. rooms manager is here:
Rooms Occupancy and Rooms Manager
While ST has a concept of rooms it is essentially a grouping mechanism which does not enable personalized automation. In contrast rooms occupancy considers the room as a meta device and automates common tasks associated with a “room” physical or virtual. What makes it really useful is not just the room's occupancy state but the ability to manage automation for rooms in a set of rules for the room based on the occupancy state of the room and data from various sensors. When creating a room device through the smartapp you are able to create these rules for the rooms making your rooms really smart.
What these rules enable is many common tasks around rooms which most users go through automating at some point. Us…

again alpha version for ST … no known bugs … device tiles are not there yet but coming.
Thank you !
I have to check on the lux rates vs the old one but this seems to be working as expected.
Yes this one seems the only one there the lux work, thank you.
seems folks are starting to use this one … time for me to find some time to add the tiles.
It seems that
apixu.com is now weatherstack.com along with a new API. Has somebody managed to make it work?
do you still need this or are you using an alternate weather device?
Tried to use the integrated weather app for lux but it stopped working. So, yes, it would be great to bring this back with estimated lux data.
Have this installed and input my api key but cant seem to get temp, humidity, or lux. is this working in the new app or did i do something wrong
sorry … believe apixu was deprecated and is now owned by weatherstack. i will look into if they have a free tier and i can replace the API calls.
edit: just checked on their website. free tier is 1000 calls / month. that won’t work.
i will check a bit more on if there is a free tier available with another weather service that i can make work. if not i will mark this deprecated here and on GitHub.
Weatherstack does have free public key…tried it as well, just wont pull data
