- Autonomous: Meteobridge PRO is operated by your browser, so you don't have to install anything on your PC and you can use it with any desktop, laptop,
tablet. With the browser you configure the Meteobridge PRO initially. Once configured to your needs the Meteobridge PRO works totally independent from
your PC, which takes the burden of having a PC up and running all the time to monitor weather data away from you. It is an autonomous, low power solution
that takes care of your weather stations data.
- Uploads/Sending: Beside feeding weather networks Meteobridge PRO allows you to pull your weather data in short intervals to your own server in the Internet.
This can be done by FTP, SFTP, HTTP, HTTPS or even by mySQL requests. You also can send weather data by email or can twitter your data. Which data
to send or upload and at which intervals is completely under your control.
- Web-Templates: Meteobridge PRO can feed the most popular webpage templates („Leuven“, „Saratoga“, „Home Weather Station“, „Meteotemplate“ and „WD-Live“)
and makes it easy to set up your individual Internet weather web page easy.
- Conditions: Meteobridge PRO can even act on user-defined sensor data conditions and initiate any of the actions mentioned above (like email) when sensor
data matches conditions defined by you. Having multiple ways to upload and send data, controlled by user-defined conditions gives you an extremely
flexible tool to make things happen based on sensor data.
- Remote Access: Meteobridge PRO offers the ability to be reached from the Internet by simply setting a mark on the web interface. Doing so you are provided
with an Internet URL where you can reach your Meteobridge PRO. No changes at your firewall and router are needed. It just works, unless you are in
a company-grade LAN where packet filtering is applied or other special measures are taken. This feature is extremely helpful when you are on travel
or the Meteobridge is located in a remote location and you want to check things or change settings. Your Meteobridge remains protected by the password
you gave it.
- Display: Meteobridge PRO has a 128x64 pixel black/white display at the front, which is used during boot to show boot progress and the IP address it has
been given by the router. This display is user programmable and can also be used to show data of station sensors. You can define distinct pages to
show up on the display. These pages can have text in various fonts and sizes and will typically show sensor data. You can arrange these pages into
a flow so that information to be displayed will change at a frequency defined by you. Example below shows a typical cascade of pages that comes as
- Storage: Meteobridge PRO comes with an internal database that can store up to 1 GB of weather station data, which allows to hold data of more than a
decade. Data can be inspected, edited and deleted via the Meteobridge PRO web interface, which also gives a graphical overview about data of a specified
sensor in a year's, month's or day's time range. Meteobridge PRO can directly make use of stored data when uploading information, so this can feed
server with any kind of sensor data for any period in time. Therefore, you are not stuck to predefined templates but can design your internet weather presence
as you like.
- Sharing: Meteobridge PRO allows to export stored weather data in a CSV like notation. Which data to export and for what period in time is user-defined.
This allows you to export data for various follow-on processes. Meteobridge PRO makes data exports accessible by providing a samba share (windows network
folder) that every PC in your LAN can easily mount as a network folder.
- Monitoring: Meteobridge PRO has an internal power monitoring that measures support voltage and power usage of the Meteobridge PRO itself and all connected
USB devices. This is extremely handy, when Meteobridge PRO is
running in a battery powered environment, as it can monitor and even act on power conditions. It also allows you to check if your setup is doing “as green”
- SMS/Twitter: Meteobridge PRO can send SMS via service provider „messagebird“. This can be done in regular intervals or triggered by user-defined events.
Content of the SMS can include weather data. Meteobridge PRO is not
limited to SMS but can also send weather information via twitter.
Graphs and display:
- Meteobridge PRO can show line graphs of the recorded weather data. Engine used for this is the classleading chart engine from “amcharts”. This graphs
are fully interactive. You can touch the timeline to expand or shrink the time period to be displayed. When the cursor moves over the graph textual
data pops up. Data can be shown or hidden by clicking on the items in the legend. Different kind of information can be shown in vertically stacked
panels that share the same time line.
- You can inspect the graphs from within the Meteobridge PRO web interface or you can upload the graphs via FTP to your web server. Integration into your
home page is most easy as the graphs are selfcontained, you don’t have to install additional libs on your web server. Furthermore you can also reach
out to the graphs on your Meteobridge PRO from the internet, when you have remote access enabled on your Meteobridge PRO. Graphs are not password protected,
so you don’t have to compromise your password for Meteobridge PRO administration for allow access to the graphs.
- While Meteobridge PRO comes with a set of standard graph definitions (both, with ISO and imperial units) you can also define new graph definitions based
on the “amchart” chart engine capabilities. This way Meteobridge PRO gives more options to visualize weather data than most PC programs while having
an unmatched small form factor and asking for an extremely small amount of energy.
