I am working on a few dashboards connected to Hubitat. Looking for a simple way to add weather tile to my dashboard, saw a few posts on how to do this, a little dated and overly complicated as it requires a link to an image, and then try to get it to update. Does anyone have a simpler approach? much appreciated!
Have you created a Virtual Device using the built-in Open Weather Map driver?
From the Hubitat Admin UI > Devices:
Tap the + Add Device at the top
(or +Add Virtual Device on older versions)
Tap the </> Virtual button in the Add device screen
In the Type field, search for OpenWeatherMap and select it under the System category
Provide a Device Name and tap the Save Device button
Open the OpenWeatherMap website, tap Sign-in, then Create an Account. Once you’ve created an account, you can generate a new API Key from the API Keys tab.
Note that it will take 1 hour after registering an Open Weather Map account and creating the API Key for the key to become active.
After waiting 1 hour for the key to become active, open your newly created OpenWeatherMap device and paste the API Key into the relevant field, configure your location, and press Save Preferences. Upon saving, the device should grab the latest weather information and the current states should get populated.
