Dyacon weather stations have always been compatible with Weather Underground. This has been a low-cost web portal option for our users, serving both their internal company needs and as a publicity tool. It has been used by our researcher customers as well as for aviation, industrial, and safety users. While useful, Weather Underground has a few drawbacks:
1) the advertisements are annoying,
2) only a few of the available Dyacon sensors are charted, and
3) there no user access controls, everything is public.
DyaconLive is a weather station web portal designed and programmed by Dyacon staff for Dyacon weather stations. It is the most exciting product we have introduced (at least to us) and we have some great plans for it. The first version was released in February 2018 and there are many enhancements that will be available in the coming months.
With the first version, DyaconLive corrects the principle deficiencies of Weather Underground:
1) there is no advertising,
2) all available Dyacon sensors are charted, and
3) the weather station owner (administrator) has both private and public accessibility options.
Planned releases in Q1 and Q2 of 2018 will add a station operational status page, custom date selection of charted values, multi-station administration, and many features that will make the weather data useful and actionable.
How Do I Get It?
DyaconLive is available for all Dyacon weather stations which have a cell phone installed. So, if your station is currently on Weather Underground or you have text message capability, you can use DyaconLive.
The only thing that is required is a firmware update to v145 or later. All Dyacon weather stations with a cell phone can be updated over the air for free. Just contact us to get the update command or we can run it for you.
Will I Still Get Weather Underground?
Yes. If DyaconLive is enabled, your current Weather Underground configuration will not change.
What About My Data?
If you want historical data from your weather station moved to DyaconLive, please let us know, we can import your log data into the database.
Don’t see what you want? Give us a call and let us know what you need; we want to make your weather station useful, not a novelty.
