OK I have Dark Sky polling data but how do I create a rain sensor device using it?  Now it shows virtual devices for temp, pressure and humidity only.  Wonder how hard to modify the virtual rain sensor...

You have to create your own. If you know how to view all the data variables, find the rain probability variable and the precipitation intensity and use PLEG to turn a virtual switch (or a virtual sensor) on and off. I don't remember exactly how I had mine but since I abandoned it a while back, I can't look either...

  • HA ≠ IoT as a blue sky is cloudless.

I am looking to adapt the VRainsensor plugin to poll the darksky plugin. Unfortunately, the DarkSky API does not provide the same level of precipitation details as weather underground. This will take some work... I will get to it eventually.

I noticed the datafeed seemed sparse on  precipitation data.  Thank you......
