    The weather.data schema that KevinT is introducing is not yet on the Wiki - see the above post by KevinT. I'm assuming he's liaising with James re sorting the account access on the Wiki.

    WiKi updates are very sporadic but I have been making some (long) posts on the other xAP forums over the last few weeks... and working on getting out a new application for Apple iOS. More news soon.

    Default Wiki Access

    I seem to be able to get in to the wiki now, don't pretend to understand what has happened there.

    An update to the Weather Schema will be made in the next couple of days

    It is an alternative schema ... weather.data as per your previous post that you're adding - not an 'update' to the existing weather.report .. .?

    I can get to the wiki / weather dot report schema now. Very strange that I couldn't get to it before.

    I am going to forward draft weather schema to Steve at Cumulus such that he can see what is happening.

    Default Wiki Updated

    I have updated the xAP Weather Schema on the wiki

    http://www.xapautomation.org/index.p...-_Weather.data

    with some minor edits from the post above for clarity

    I have attached a couple of example messages which I have been using for testing. To use these open any xAP message in xFx Viewer, select all the existing message, then paste one of these messages in and send

    What about adding Solar Radiation and UV to the xAP Weather Schema.

    Can you give an example of where you might source this data, the data range and the engineering units?

    Hi Kevin,

    Cumulus already supports these readings from Davis Vantage weather stations and hopefully steve can add this to Cumulus xAP output.

    UV Index

    Range 0.0 to 16.0

    Resolution 0.1

    Solar Radiation

    Range 0 to 1800

    Resolution 1

    Units W/m

    Thanks Brian

    Solar Radiation would be useful for triggering awnings and blinds to close before the sun will hit a window. xAP is already useful for saving the awnings from strong winds. I use Davis Vantage Pro connected to Weatherdisplay that then sends the weather info via xAP to HomeSeer.

    It would be great if Solar Radiation and UV Index could be added to the Schema and then later to Weatherdisplay.

    Thanks
    Lars

    Yup here using UV Index and Solar Radiation numbers to calculate ET (Evaportranspiration) for my sprinkling system (application).

    Here lately being a bit redundant taking the numbers from xAP and a text file generated by Cumulus then FTP'd to my internet web site / weather pages.

    ( so using internal data and external data plus the hardware weather stations (have two set up right now) and using Homeseer.)
