Global UV Index Forecast

This app adds support for Global UV Index Forecast data from OpenUV.

https://apps.athom.com/app/io.openuv

Included devices/features:

  • UV Index Forecast for today and tomorrow based on Homey geolocation.

UV Index Data


Setting 1: Select a point in time for forecasts (hours ahead).

Setting 2: Enter API key.

The app needs an active API key from openUV.
Please see https://www.openuv.io/ for how to get a free key.
The app will use 15 polls a day (and one extra poll per setting change).

Update: oops… Until further notice the offset need to be changed after entering the API key to have the information updated. I am looking into fixing this bug for next update of the app.

Feedback:

  • Please post requests in the openUV Forecast topic on the Athom Community forum.

  • Please report any problems concerning the code in the issues section on Github.

What kind of scale does openUV use. Knmi uses 1-8. In belgium they use 1-12. At this day openuv says it max could be 7.4 and knmi says 6. I want to use this in a flow but at this point i do not know from which UV number I want a warning. Nice app btw, does suite a need fir my family.

Hi @Marcel_Ubels, this app use a 0-11+ scale.

UV Index categories

Recommended UV Index categories for UV Index levels

I will look into adding this info to the app.
