I have just found out about an application for Android called “Notify My Android” (NMA) this is a freemium (free for very limited use – with paid unlimited usage), that will allow you to send all sorts of notifications from your PC, Mac, If This Then That (IFTTT.com) or your Raspberry Pi.
I will show you how you can log events from your Raspberry Pi as notifications on your Android device.Read more
What it does
This script will find the most recent raw file that PYWWS has produced in its data path, look for the last line and then look for the wind speed value (value 9- or counting from 0 as list arrays do – it is the 8th).
Once it has found the value it will go through a check to see if it is mild, windy or gale-force.
1 light = What Wind?
3 lights = rustling the leaves
6 lights = inside out umbrellas
12 lights = inside out houses
When I first installed the Weather Station image to the disk, it worked fine for the intermittent updates (hourly, daily for example). But I wanted to update live statistics to the Weather Underground.
Now, although the script was already there to run, it crashed repeatedly meaning several hours would go by without an update. This was not what I wanted so I searched around and finally came up with the solutions. One was a better script to run the live updates as a “DAEMON” and the other was to put this into “CRON” and run it every minute of every day.Read more
Over the Christmas period I have been setting up a Maplin USB Wireless Weather station that is connected to my RaspberryPi using PyWWS drivers.
My RaspberryPi uploads the raw data to the Weather Undergrounds Personal Weather Station site (PWS for short). You can do this yourself using the same simple tools described in this post.Read more

RaspControl – Updated version
Back in January I wrote about RaspControl for the Raspberry Pi. Since then the original author stopped maintaining the tool and a new team have taken over.
Since the way you prepare and install the tool has also changed (for the better), so I thought I would do an updated review and instructions on the new version.
Installing Apache – a needed requirement with the new version, this is a very easy step to do
