Interpreting Data from Weather Station

Sun Oct 27, 2019 9:00 pm

Hi there, a while ago I bought an XC-0400 Weather Station. (Link Here) I want to submit the weather data to Weather Underground. The station talks to a receiver unit over 433Mhz.

And I'm wondering if I can use a Raspberry Pi 3B+ to intercept the signal, decode the data, and then submit the data to Weather Underground. If I can't do it with a Raspberry PI, I have an always-on Win 10 PC I can use as an alternative.

Also, I have little knowledge about working with Raspberry Pi, so working examples of code etc. would be appreciated.

Have you tried to search on the Internet?

As I can see from this thread this station is actually the same as Fine Offset WH1080 Weather Station or at least uses the same protocol.
So, you can use RTL SDR dongle and decode it with rtl_433. But I have some doubts that RPi can handle RTL SDR dongle. Maybe it works, I don't know. You can connect to and run it on your Windows machine.
I am sure that it is possible to receive and decode it directly on Raspberry Pi because the protocol is well known and I have seen some implementations. For example, this one (but it uses old receivers):

Yet another thread on this forum:

Actually I have implemented support of several type of sensors in my utility but I have no anything like WH1080. Theoretically I can do it when I have time. Maybe during holidays I will look at it. But I can't promise anything and I already have requests from my users that I need to take care of.
