The Official WeatherBug Community
Welcome to the WeatherBug Community!
Greetings Community Members,
I wanted to share some exciting new changes taking place at WeatherBug -- some are already in place and others are in development, and will be available very soon.
First, you may have already noticed both our WeatherBug.com and EarthNetworks.com websites have been redesigned. Both Websites are now proudly displaying new logos, in addition to their new layout. We also recently introduced the newest version of our mobile application for iPhone and Android. Our website and mobile app changes are only part of the upgrades taking place. We are also actively developing new capabilities for the WeatherBug Backyard Community
Here is an overview of all of our exciting new enhancements.
Brand new mobile application
- New map layers. Various radar and satellite layers. Also, you'll find lightning, local temp, wind speed and other related layer options to choose from. Temperature Contour and related layers are also available.
- Weather Alerts. US residents can receive critical weather alerts from their WeatherBug application.
- WeatherBug Today home screen. When you first launch WeatherBug on your mobile device, you'll instantly be presented with a fully customizable WeatherBug Today screen. This includes real-time lightning alerts using Spark lightning detection.
In addition to the weather data functionality, we're also excited to announce that WeatherBug Home is available to Backyard Community members. WeatherBug Home users enjoy tracking their home's energy setpoints in order to determine how much energy is being used each day. WeatherBug Home supports NEST, Honeywell and SmartThings thermostats.
The WeatherBug Home functionality built into the new mobile app provides you with the ability to see how setpoint changes can save you money on your energy bill. Future features planned for WeatherBug Home include tracking how weather changes impact HVAC usage.
New Single Sign On system
As part of WeatherBug Home, we've launched a new single sign-on system. This means you're able to utilize a user account for WeatherBug Home, PWS, StreamerRT, Pulse API (for software developers), in addition to any future WeatherBug related product launches.
WeatherBug Home also provides its users with the ability to connect their utility usage data with the following utility companies.
- Beltrami Electric Cooperative
- Brainherd Public Utilities
- Fall River Rural Electric
- North Star Electric Company
- WPPI Energy
If your utility company isn't listed, simply sign up with WeatherBug Home to be alerted when your utility provider has been added.
Impacts to the WeatherBug Backyard Community
Due to the changes made to our network, PWS stations will temporarily be unavailable as a weather site selection from WeatherBug.com while we continue to roll out related updates. Those PWS participants who are submitting data are encouraged to continue to do so. But the data's visibility on the WeatherBug.com website is going to be temporarily unavailable until we finish with our needed upgrades. PWS is still a vital part of this community and we're looking forward to bringing it back into the fold on WeatherBug.com once the upgrades are complete.
Part of the PWS system upgrades include utilizing the new WeatherBug single sign-on feature. This is important as it allows us to provide even more functionality and additional subscription options with features that PWS users will enjoy. Also, this enables us to provide weather related home automation information that our community members can access. For international folks, the big feature upgrade will be the ability to get their PWS connected to send and receive data.
WeatherBug Backyard has been changed to better reflect our spirit of community. The new name is WeatherBug Community. In addition to the name change, we're ramping things up by driving new Website traffic to this site from WeatherBug.com. This means when you blog or share weather insights, more people than ever will be able to benefit from your experiences. The most active members will be eligible for WeatherBug Community incentives made possible by these upgrades.
Despite the temporary disconnect between WeatherBug products and the PWS stations, we're encouraging anyone interested in sending us weather data to go ahead and sign up as a PWS/Backyard user by clicking the registration link. This will make sure data is flowing to the system so when the upgrades are completed, you won't have any issues sending us data.
We appreciate your patience while we are working on improvements and stay tuned for more exciting additions and product launches. If you have concerns or just need clarification on something, feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com
If you've visited the WeatherBug Community in the past couple of days, you'll notice the design of the community looks quite different from what you're used to seeing. As my colleague Matt Hartley pointed out in a previous announcement, WeatherBug and our parent company, Earth Networks, has undergone some massive new branding changes.
To ensure the WeatherBug Community consistently reflects the new WeatherBug.com and our new branding changes, we've…Continue
