sorry if this has been asked before, but is the station ID (i.e the number that shows in the app in the status settings and used for viewing your data on the smartweather.weatherflow.com web site)
is that available in the UDP data?
I just looked at the UDP data coming from my stations (using Wireshark) and I don’t see the station number in any of the packets. Just an “unofficial” observation. Hopefully a more definitive answer will be provided by someone who knows a heck of a lot more than I do about it.
it is not.
@dan.gealt Why are you using wireshark? There are great apps that make it easier.
I am such a dinosaur I still sometimes call Wireshark Ethereal. But . . . all kidding aside, I would love to move into more modern tools and would appreciate any suggestions you might provide.
Thanks Gary. I’ll chase it down and try to evolve.
The first thing I do is open that application to view the incoming UDP packets anytime something weird happens with the station. That’s how I found an issue with firmware 17.
One is able to get the device serial numbers from the Station ID but I have not discovered a method to obtain an ID with only a serial number. I have succeeded in building a table to look up that data.
No, station ID is not available from the Hub because we consider Station ID (like name, location and other meta data) to be part of the application logic. The Hub and sensor devices (AIR & SKY) are “dumb” in the sense that they don’t know who or where they are. Of course, they are “smart” in many other ways! But they only know how to collect, store and send raw sensor data. Everything else is handled at the application level.
