Weather station stopped working

Mario Zgorelec shared this announcement 11 days ago

Dear Zipato users,


the current Virtual weather stations you have been using in our environment have stopped updating itself, we are doing everything in our power to provide you with a new version of it. 

All your rules will continue to work but with the last data provided by the weather station on 8.6.2020., as mentioned above the weather station will not update itself anymore.


The reason for the service being stopped is as following....

Until now we were using the API and information provided by Yahoo weather and Yahoo decided to shut down their API indefinitely.

https://developer.yahoo.com/api/


We will update this thread with new information as soon as we get them.


Best regards

Zipato Team

Hello Dear Zipato Partners,

Wish you best of success at your works.

We're wondering, when could this rules be fixed?

Thank you,

Kind Regards!

I notice that since 2days all my rules based on sunrise/sunset stopped to work.

Is that related to weather station issue? Probably yes because I remember that sunrise/sunset are related to virtual weather station.

I hope the new weather station version will work better than the old one.

The old one had like 2-4 hours delay in sync therefore rules based on close to real time actions were useless.

This is getting a bit out of hand guys. This is one of the key features for automation in the system and it’s been down more than a week.


Nothing based on sunrise / sunset now works - even with old values. It just doesnt trigger.


Please provide an ETA on the fix so we can all decide if we need switch system or not.
