Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10
Need a application and or recommendation for a monitoring system. It will be set up locally and used to record essential data, reports to channels such as: The Weather Channel - Weather Underground - AccuWeather etc.
There is one more program for Ubuntu. That is Weather Display.
Download Weather display Then you can install it with
tar -xvf WeatherD.tar.gz cd WeatherD chmod +x GoWeather.sh ./GoWeather.sh
Note: to you have proper installation you have to install these packages
sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2 libgdk-pixbuf2
Few other good programs are there which are available in software centre too.
2.Stormcloud(Commercial product of $3:00).
you can have them by filling the search field with their names.Hope that helps.
For robust/reliable result, you need
data acquisition solution.
Do a Google search with that term and you will find some result. Many of them will provide free SDK/Library, you just need to buy the hardware. This is one with temperature equipment.(OK, I am lazy here, that is the 1st one come up on the search :P)
There are also free Linux data acquisition library/SDK, but you will have to check what hardware they are supporting. Comedi is one of them.
