I recently added the Smart Weather Monitor to the new Smart Things app. When I open it I can see categories from the weather station for illuminance, humidity, temperature and UV index. In the IDE event log I can see the weather tile is receiving a considerable amount more data including forecast and current condition. I would like to create an automation that turns lights on based on the current condition outside, but a new weather station automation only allows me to select variables that appear on the tile within the app. Is there a way to add to the current condition to display on the tile so I can create this automation? Am I missing something here?
If I could take a look I could see if I can figure anything out. (Maybe, maybe not) But I couldn’t find a new device called SmartWeather Monitor. Do you mean SmartWeather Tile 2.0? I hope not because I can’t get that one working at all.
But if you could tell me where to get the SmartWeather Monitor I will install and see.
I would like to do the same thing. I have large windows in the house and when cloudy outside I would like to turn a lamp on just to get some more light on the living room. I also have action tiles and have everything working like weather radar,reports and tile weather 5 day outlook. It would be nice to us this data from my action tile into ST automation…but I bet there is an easier way.
I already had the Smart Weather Station device installed and in the new app it only showed the three tabs.
I left that device in place and added a second instance. That second instance shows ALL data in the new app on my iPhone but on my iPad it only shows the same three data items as the pre-existing weather device.
