War Stories from hacking Weather Stations


Short presentation on hacking the Oregon Scientific WeatherStation with a proprietary interface. To free the data within.

Short presentation on hacking an Oregon Scientific WeatherStation with a proprietary interface. The Weather Station itself was provided with a USB port, with some clunky Microsoft Windows Software to dump the data to CSV. Pulling the data directly out of the Weather Station by the port provided was not going to be an option.

Instead Open Source software came to the rescue; in the form of a Arduino Sketch implementing Manchester Encoding with a €2 RXB6 module. With this, I was able to intercept the 433 Mz Sensor Data and upload to the internet with WeeWX.

This is a story of a €12 investment and Open Source, opening a World of Weather Data.
