Read the weather



  • I am using mervis to control my driveway snow melt, I thought I read somewhere that mervis has the capability to monitor the weather. I am subscribed to weather underground to query their xml for my area, is it possible to pull that info to monitor temperature, current conditions and the percent chance of precipitation in Mervis?

    Thanks

  • Hello the weather forecast in Mervis is connected only to our weather service which can be purchased on monthly fee per location. However you might be able to create eg. a TCP modbus server that will read the forecast and save it to modbus registers and read it with mervis. But take it only as idea that might work.



  • Thank You for the response, I was charting out how I was going to setup the controls for the system and while lining it up the weather came to mind and had to ask. Currently I am just getting the system up and going so automatic control will come at a later date, at that point I will dig into it.
