A - installed avrdude (IE: sudo su, apt install avrdude)

 

B - downloaded current Meteostick firmware/

 

C - update of firmware

 

avrdude -F -b 115200 -c stk500v1 -p m328p -P /dev/ttyUSB0 -U flash:w:/meteostick.hex

 

2 - install screen

 

sudo apt-get install screen

 

3 - run terminal with screen

Also entertaining purchasing the WiFiLogger.  Traditionally connectivity was via a serial data logger plugged in to the Davis Console.

 

I initially kept moving the Davis Weather station until I took it down and connected to the Davis on the nearby golf course which I could see in the middle of a rough.

 

WiFiLogger 2

WiFiLogger is a 3rd party data logger to use with Davis® weather stations consoles. Now you can enhance your console not only with memory to log your archive data, but also with Wi-Fi capability. With WiFiLogger your weather station will become truly an Internet of Things device. WiFiLogger is an autonomous device. It doesn’t need a computer to post weather data to the Internet. All you need is an Internet service with router and Wi-Fi.

Ordered the WiFi logger.

 

For time bean moved the console and datalogger cable to the basement and connected it to the HS4 / Home Assistant box.  Installed CumulusMX on the same box.

 

Cumulus MX now speaks MQTT such that I can use it this way with HA.  Never used the Davis console much before any how.

In conclusion here....the Meteostick is really only supported by the Meteohub and WeatherWX these days.  I personally like the footprint but it is a tad overpriced.

 

I have ordered an old travel router to use with the custom OpenWRT OS used with the Meteohub / Meteostick just to see how it functions.

 

What is working well right now is the old "green dot" buffered serial cable plugged in to the back of the Davis Console and connected to CumulusMX.  CumulusMX has been updated to work fine these days.  I am running it now on the newer HS4 / HA box.

 

I have ordered the WiFi logger.
