Hi James,

 

As best as I know it, the Oregon sensors only sends their data in Celsius for temp and hPa for barometers.

 

There are functions in MH to convert these to Fahrenheit and MBs if that is what you wish before you populate the Weather hash.

 

I think they are in Weather_Common.pm.

Subject: Re: [mh] Expansion to Weather & Temp Sensors

 

So I was inspired by this thread to go ahead and get the rfxcom 433MHZ receiver and some Oregon Scientific sensors.  I am using the rfx-xpl gateway from iranger.com and then broadcast those as XPL for MH to pickup. I have successfully populated a couple of the variables in the weather hash and have indoor temperature and humidity.  My problem is the value is the temperature in celsius, but I would like it in Fahrenheit.  It seems that the rfx-xpl gateway gets both value from the sensor, but then sends the celsius via XPL where misterhouse grabs it.  I don't see that this is configurable anywhere.  I did see where I can change the weather_uom_temp in the ini, but thats not what I want to do.  I would rather get the fahrenheit value directly into MH. 

 

I can also already see perhaps an issue with the barometer, the value being collected by rfx-xpl is hPa instead of inches.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,
James
