A weather station with API typically consists of sensors that measure various meteorological parameters such as temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, and precipitation. Apart from the sensors it also contains a device that transmits the data to a server. The server stores the data and makes it available to users through an API.

To access the data, users can make HTTP requests to the API using a variety of programming languages. The API will then return the requested data in a standardized format (such as JSON). The API may require users to authenticate themselves using an API key or other method, and may also impose rate limits on the number of requests that can be made per unit of time

When do you need weather station API?

There are several situations in which a weather station with API might be more useful than a normal weather station:

  1. If you need to integrate weather data into an existing system or application, an API can make it easy to retrieve and use the data.
  2. If you need real-time or near real-time weather data, an API can allow you to access the most up-to-date information.
  3. If you need to collect and analyse large amounts of weather data over a long period of time, an API can make it easier to retrieve and process the data.
  4. If you need to customize the data that you receive from the weather station (e.g., only temperature and humidity), an API can allow you to specify exactly what data you want to retrieve.
  5. If you need to access weather data from multiple locations, an API can allow you to retrieve data from multiple weather stations.

When to use a weather station with API?

Some of our clients choose to use a weather station API to realise their projects. Let's take this experiment with blueberry bushes for example. A software program was able to calculate the exact amount of water that the bushes were to receive, based on the precipitation that fell and the soil moisture in the bushes' root zone.

Read the full blog about this experiment below:

Another reason to use API to access a weather station is to bring all your data together in one place. Often companies already use a plethora of software and overview tends to get messy. In these instances, it's very useful to receive your measurements directly in your own software.

Even for large factories a local weather station with API can be very useful. One of our clients uses their weather station to measure the temperature, wind and humidity of the outside air around their building. Through the API this data automatically helps them regulate the amount of ventilation inside the factory and determines how much outside air is being pulled in. Weather stations can thus be a real help with optimising HVAC systems.

API access also gives you the opportunity to publicly display your measurements. One of our clients wanted to keep his followers up to date about his project and chose to show the data on his website. Graphs were automatically updated through the API.

Our weather station works in combination with our plug & play sensor module Reporter. As a Crodeon customer, you are free to use the Rest API. You can call all Reporter data from external systems to the dashboard in real-time.

Why you need Crodeon's weather kit

What makes the Crodeon weather station API so unique is its versatility combined with its autonomy. Reporter's power can either be provided through the grid or through its own powerful solar panel. The internet connection is established through a SIM card which uses the GSM network. This makes Reporter the ideal solution for the most remote places where a WiFi connection is impossible.

Reporter sends its data to the cloud platform called Crodeon Dashboard, which is remotely accessible 24/7. All of our sensors are accessible through API when you use Reporter. By using API access you can automate your measuring project. Such as automatic watering of fruit or other crops.

Similar old legacy weather systems are often more complicated in use and expensive to buy than the Crodeon weather station with API. Noteworthy is that Reporter offers three additional connectors after the weather station has been installed, which gives you the opportunity to install other interesting sensors for your project. Groundwater level, pressure or water flow for example, combined with a relay output module this gives you the opportunity to thoroughly measure the weather and fully automate your project.
