    But EasyCRON.com is also free and also has an API, am I missing something?

    HOW TO GET PERSONAL WEATHER DATA TO PWSWEATHER.COM

    B-hyve uses stations on PWSWeather.com (a.k.a. WeatherForYou.com) for personalized weather. This site is free (as of now) for individuals to create accounts and upload weather data to. The problem is that there aren’t many (if any) PWSs that upload data there out of the box. Most systems can get an add-on module called an Ambient Weather Weatherbridge for a significant cost that is easy to use and works well but now there’s another option.

    As of 9/18/2018 Ambient Weather now supports pushing data to PWSWeather.com (and Wunderground) from their site.

    If your station is able to get data to http://www.ambientweather.net but not PWSWeather.com, Ambient Weather can now forward your data to pwsweather.com where your data needs to be for the B-hyve App to see it as a station. All you have to do is create an account and station on PWSWeather.com and then login to http://www.ambientweather.com and go to your devices and enter the station information you created on PWSWeather.com.

    If you know of another way to get data to Ambient Weather for free or on the cheap please feel free to chime in!

    Thanks!

    Confirmed @Josh, it seem to work much better than my Cronjob solution. Thank you again.

    This is a late post to this discussion, but I don’t see why you need a WU api key to post data to pwsweather.com. Your post simply asks for the WU station ID. I set it up as you stated (without any API key), and pwsweather.com is displaying the data from WU every 2 minutes. I don’t get forcasting data, but real time data is going to pwsweather.com.

    I have my b-hyve linked to my pws station but I didn’t see a rain delay appear after the last rainfall, is there a way to see if the b-hyve is receiving the rainfall data?

    Has any one got any updates on this process?
    I’m about to purchase a pws and would like to know if the process is relatively simple and if there are any fees involved?
