(FREE Indigo plugin)
The NOAA Weather Plus plugin extends the functionality of Indigo (versions 5.0 and higher) by allowing you to create an Indigo device that contains weather information for your geographic location. Current weather conditions and a 7-day forecast for your location are gathered from the US National Weather Service (a department of NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
Indigo includes a built-in NOAA Weather plugin. However, NOAA Weather Plus goes beyond the functionality of the included NOAA Weather plugin by adding the following features.
Use the download link above to download the latest version of the plugin. Once downloaded, it should automatically unzip, but if it doesn't double-click the zip file to decompress it. If you downloaded the plugin from a computer other than your Indigo server computer, move the plugin file to any location on your Indigo server. Once decompressed and moved to the computer with the Indigo server running, double-click the "NOAA Weather Plus.indigoPlugin" icon. You should be prompted to install and configure the plugin. The only global plugin configuration is the option to turn debug logging on or off (it's off by default). Simply click "Save" to continue. The plugin is installed.
Use NOAA Weather Plus by creating a new Indigo device within the Indigo client. Within the Devices section of the Indigo client, click the "New..." button. Name the device (perhaps "My Weather"). Select "Plugin" as the device Type. Select "NOAA Weather Plus" as the Plugin. Select "Weather Locale" as the Model. A configuration dialog will appear. Enter the geographic latitude and longitude coordinates of the location for which you'd like to monitor weather conditions and forecast information. (Of course, weather data is limited to that gathered by the US National Weather Service, so coordinates outside the US will either result in an error or very limited data). If you don't know your geographic coordinates, you can click on the "Find My Location Info" button (only works on the Indigo server machine) to open your web browser to Indigo Domotocs' suggested location lookup site links.
* NOAA Weather Plus does not contain the following states that do exist in the included NOAA Weather plugin: dewPointString, heatIndexString, temperatureString, windString. Additionally, all measurements are rounded to a realistic (lower) level of precission to more accurately reflect measured values coming from NOAA (e.g. temperatures do not contain decimal values).
