auto updating wunderground weather station

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import homebridgeWeatherStation from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/homebridge-weather-station';



This is a weather station plugin for Nfarina's Homebridge project,and is a fork of homebridge-wunderground. This fork combines all characterstics into a single service, exposes the current weather conditons, and automatically updates every few minutes.

You can use these values as conditions for triggers or just look at them via HomeKit enabled Apps on your iOS device or even ask Siri for them.

Weather Conditions

Currently, the current weather conditions are exposed in two properties, WeatherCondition and WeatherConditionValue. WeatherCondition is a read-only string representation of the current weather conditions, and can be one of the Forecast Description Phrases listed on this page.

WeatherConditionValue is an enum value that currently represents one of three values:

Condition Enum Value
Other 0
Rain 1
Snow 2

You can combine this with the homebridge-suncalc to create rules that turn on and off the lights when its raining during the day.


  1. Install homebridge using: npm install -g homebridge
