MeteoBridge is a tiny, self-contained computer able to process data from any of the Davis stations using a data feed from one of the Weatherlink loggers. MeteoBridge is a product of Smartbedded and is one of the family of software and hardware products whose names all start with ‘Meteo’ and which also include MeteoStick, MeteoHub and MeteoPlug.
This knowledgebase topic covers just two of the products: MeteoBridge and MeteoStick, which is dealt with as a separate subtopic. Refer to the main Smartbedded site for any issues relating to MeteoHub or MeteoPlug.
Primary support for MeteoBridge is provided by the creator of the MB software in two main ways:
- Detailed instructions for setting up and using MeteoBridge can be found at the MeteoBridge home page;
- Any further questions can be asked on the MeteoBridge forum . The author is usually able to answer questions there within a day or so;
All support requests for MeteoBridge should be directed to one of the two resources noted above, But some further notes on MeteoBridge are included below covering some issues that can crop up when setting up an MB unit for the first time. But you must refer to the wiki notes for information about how to configure uploads to weather networks, how to use Push Services etc.
Important: MeteoBridge is actually a software product but is sold by Prodata already programmed on to a tiny host computer (a TP-Link MR-3020) and so is supplied as a turnkey product. You do NOT need to flash the firmware – this step of flashing and licensing the program has already been done and paid for – and you are ready to proceed with setting up the the MB unit to talk to your own local network and then to configure the unit to upload to the weather servers and networks of your choice.
