The Monoprice sensor updates periodically - I think either every so many minutes or whenever a change delta is met. Motion activation is definitely not needed. I have mine in my den and it’s pointed away from the Window. The lights in the den don’t seem to adversely affect the readings but I’m not pointing at any of them.
Haven’t tried it myself but I assumed since the AccuWeather smartapp created a device in the things list it could be added to webcore.
Oh, right. It can. Illuminance is not provided, though. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
How about weather data… in the weather station tile? I’m interested in how to get my AcuRite weather station data again after WU API goes down. Any good alternatives identified? I’m also publishing weather data for Rachio sprinklers from WU that is essential for watering amounts / effectiveness of a smart watering system.
