With Digi Netatmo you can easly integrate Joomla and Netatmo, to show on your website the data coming from your Netatmo weather station.
This happens through the Netatmo API integrated in the Joomla module, allowing you to set up which data you want to show and in which way.
This is the first module Joomla Netatmo that can be useful each time you want to show on a Joomla weather module the real time data: sky slopes, hotels, bed & breakfast, boats rental, riding school, outdoor activities, are only some examples of websites which could need to show to the visitors the real time weather.
The set up of the Joomla weather module is very easy, after have entered your own Netatmo account data, you can select the Netatmo weather station, the external Netatmo modules and then the data to be shown on Joomla. Other options are available, as the slide show display and the backup of all the settings of the module in the back end.
Bring on your Joomla website the internet of things!
This module is very easy to configure.
First you have to enter your Netatmo username and password (the same you use on the smartphone app to control your weather station) in the proper fields, then save the module. If the Netatmo login data is correct, you can see the weather stations drop down menu filled by your station(s).
Now select the weather station (this is the station that sends data to the Joomla module). Click the save button on the left of the field.
If you have external modules, such as rain or wind meters, you can now select them from the multi select field, then click the save button on the left of the field.
Now, in the weather data multi select field, you have all the showable data. Select which data you want to show and then save the module. You will see the selected data in the front end of your website.
Here there is the summary of the minimum setup:
Other options are: display type (can be text or slideshow), show date and time (with selectable date format), display units of measures, selectable temperature scale (Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin), selectable length scale (mm, inches), selectable speed scale (kph, mph), display wind direction (cardinal points or degrees), show weather station name and many more.
If you want to use slideshow display mode, and something doesn't run properly, maybe you can have some jQuery errors and/or conflicts. So in the advanced settings tab of the module, you can include or not the jQuery library, and you can choose to use the jQuery No Conflicts mode.
You can check the status of your station and modules directly in the module backend, under "Service data" tab. Here you can take a look to all batteries level, to Wi-Fi signal strength, to modules signal strangth and to modules firmware.
This module is compatible with all weather stations and sub-modules made by Netatmo. Other brands weather stations are not supported.
Of course yes! You can display data coming from the external module, rain module, wind module, and other internal modules if you want.
No, is not hard. Just put your Netatmo username and password in the proper fields, save, then select the station and modules you want as source for the data, and select the data to display (depending of your module availability). That's is, so easy.
Yes, you can by selecting the proper option in the back end of the module. After, enter your Cliend ID and Client Secret in the proper fields.
If you are not satisfied from the design of our module, you can easly change the style by css. Each div and container has the proper ID or class, even every weather data container has one different from the others; for example the temperature container will have the class "temperature".
Sure, you can if the Netatmo weather station is associated to your Netatmo account.
