The Settings tab is for viewing and editing your weather station and RainwiseNet settings.

The Settings page contains the following material:


Internal Web Page

An internal web page exists for your device. Go to Internal Web Page for more information.


Weather Station Info

Model

Select your model of weather station. SP1 users must ensure that they select the SP1 option and not the standard MK-III option. eMonitor users, select eMonitor even though you may be using a MK-III weather station.

URL : Every station gets its own unique URL (web address). The address will always start with “www.rainwise.net/weather/” You can choose what comes after this. For example the RainWise factory station is at www.rainwise.net/weather/rainwise. In the URL field only enter the last part of the URL, like “rainwise” in our address. As these are unique addresses you will not be able to use a name that already exists.

Update Rate

This should be set to match the upload rate of your weather station. The TeleMET cellular interface should default to 15 minutes.

Title & Description

The Title field allows you to customize the “Weather for ” title at the top of your weather station web page. This will not replace “Weather for”, you can only append text. Use the description text field to tell readers about your weather station.

Latitude & Longitude

Latitude and Longitude settings are very important. They are used to set the IP-100 clock, define the station time zone, show forecasts and set the radar map. The “Find my Latitude & Longitude” link will perform a look up based on the location information provided. You can manually adjust the results if necessary.


Adjustments

You can make slight sensor offset adjustments where necessary. The barometric pressure sensor will more than likely require adjustment. This is done to compensate for altitude. To make this adjustment get a pressure reading from a nearby airport. Subtract your current pressure reading from the airport pressure and insert the difference in to the field provided. This can be a positive or negative number.

Inside temperature will require adjustment. Be sure to let the IP-100 run for an hour our two before making an adjustment. The TeleMET does not have this option.

Outside temperature should not require adjustment. It is recommended that this be left at zero.

Units Preference

This option will select the default units for your weather stations. Units are stored in cookies if they are enabled. This means that if a web user selects a different unit measurement their selection be remembered.

Radar and Satellite Selection

Doppler radar is available in the US, Canada, Western Europe and Australia. Both visible and infrared satellite imaging is available for locations not covered by radar or may be selected as an alternate view in covered areas. The radar/satellite images are displayed on the main weather page.

Additional Sensors

Some weather stations support additional sensors. This depends on the model and year of weather station. Please contact RainWise for more information if you wish to add sensors. Do not enable a sensor if it is not installed on your weather station. It will produce erroneous readings.

Timezone

The timezone for your station is calculated when the station is first registered. You may alter the timezone if necessary but do so with care. If for example, you move from Eastern time to West Coats time and the unit has been running you will have to wait 3 hours for the change to take affect. This is because data will have arrived 3 hours into the future.


Weather Page Settings

The Title field allows you to customize the “Weather for ” title at the top of your weather station web page. This will not replace “Weather for”, you can only append text. Use the description text field to tell readers about your weather station. You can use simple text or more descriptive HTML. This area now has full HTML support allowing you to create hyper links. You can even link to a web cam image. You are however limited to 2048 characters.


Offset Adjustments

You can make slight sensor offset adjustments when necessary. The barometric pressure sensor will more than likely require adjustment. This is done to compensate for altitude. To make this adjustment get a pressure reading from a nearby airport. Subtract your current pressure reading from the airport pressure and insert the difference in to the field provided. This can be a positive or negative number.

Inside temperature will require adjustment. Be sure to let the IP-100 run for an hour our two before making an adjustment.

Outside temperature should not require adjustment. It is recommended that this be left at zero.


Sensor Parameters

You may add sensors and parameters depending on your model weather station. It is recommended to only select the sensors that are on your particular weather station in order to receive accurate data. Be sure to select “save changes” before returning to your weather dashboard.


Pro Level Options

Additional sensors can be set here, station dependent. The ability to share your graphs and reports to the public can also be set here. These options are only available with the pro subscription of RainwiseNet. Additional Add-ons can be purchased like SprayWise on the Subscriptions tab. For more information on the Pro Level subscription, see the Start page.


3rd Party Services

The IP-100 can be configured to send data to multiple 3rd party services. As we evolve our registration process we hope to have check off boxes of the desired 3rd party services you would like to host your data to in order to save time. You may also fill out the form for a 3rd party service manually.

To see examples of what some of these 3rd party services look like visit RainWise Live Weather

Weather Underground

Weather Underground is one of the 3rd party services where you can host your data to. By clicking “Register Here” in the Weather Underground section, you will be directed to the Weather Underground website to register. After registering, Weather Underground will provide you with your station ID. Enter this station ID into the Station ID box on your RainwiseNet settings page in the Weather Underground section. Enter your RainwiseNet password and select the time interval you would like your data to upload to Weather Underground.
