Oregon Scientific WMRS 200 (USB Weather Station)
Review of Linux Compatibility
The Oregon Scientific WMRS 200 USB weather station can be connected to the PC via USB. The WMRS 200 has the USB ID 0fde:ca01 (which is identical with the ID of the WMR 88, WMR 100, WMR 180), and is shown by the Linux system without a designation:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0fde:ca01
but recognized by the kernel in the following way:
usb 1-5.1: new low speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 11
usb 1-5.1: New USB device found, idVendor=0fde, idProduct=ca01
usb 1-5.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=1, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-5.1: Product: Universal Bridge
The WMRS 200 can be used under Linux with the open source software WeeWX (http://weewx.com). This Python program can read out the data of the weather station, store them and create charts and HTML web pages out of them.
The source code of weewx can be downloaded at Sourceforge.net. There are pre-configured DEB files files for Debian, Ubuntu or Linux Mint based distributions, which can be installed by
sudo dpkg -i weewx_X.Y.Z-R.deb
The data collected by the weather station can be stored in a sqlite or in a MySQL data base. In this way, other programs can access these data for further processing.
Detailed description of the configuration of WeeWX can be found at http://weewx.com/docs.html.
