Also keep in mind that the data is retrieved from various sources and could possibly be inaccurate…

From my location all seems to work fine

Please send me an PM with you’re coordinates so I can see what is going on. But my guess is that there is just no more info

Jeroen has a PM.

A restart of the app (I have V0.0.5) did not make any difference. Then again there is no rain at the moment :frowning: For the first time in many years I want it to rain :-).
By the way all of the capabilities are updated, except rain and uvindex. UVindex I can understand: there is no sun either, at the moment :sunglasses:

UPDATE: uvindex just changed. Waiting for rain now

Could it just be that with your coordinates this info is just not updated because it is not available in the api?

You can check with the following link what Dark Sky finds: https://darksky.net/forecast/{LAT},{LONG} ,

The API link that the app uses: https://api.darksky.net/forecast/{API KEY}/{LAT},{LONG}?lang=nl&units=auto

just replace {LAT} & {LONG} with your coordinates and {API KEY} with your api key.

I checked it myself and at these coordinates there is no information regarding rain.

Thanks for the link (really interesting) and the coordinates check.
I will try coordinates nearby that provide me with rain data.

Did you fill in a correct apj key?
Did you fill in the correct coordinates?
Did you wait a couple of minutes? The date is refreshed every two minutes

Hi Lars,
Can you tell where to find my API key.

I do remember something back in the days you could go to to google developer tools when you used the web interface of homey.

Thanks

What are the changes?

Sunrise and sunset would be very nice.
This way we can delete an app. As all weather related things are in this app.
I use rain and wind for my screens and sunset/sunrise for my outdoor lamps.

So +1

Sunset and Sunrise are built-in functions of Homey already?

Maybe a dumb question, the free dev API will handle 1000 request a day.
1 day has 1440 minutes. The app will update the capabilities every 2 minutes. So for only 1 capability this will be 720 request if I’m correct.

Isn’t this a problem?
