Weather App Installation

Welcome to the Weather App for myServer5.

The Weather App uses your Internet connection to download the current and future weather conditions for any number of locations. It creates myServer variables with this information so that you can build custom user interface scenes to display the weather. Because this weather data is contained in myServer variables, you can also leverage that data for weather related automation logic. An example would be to shut down the Irrigation Family from watering the lawn if the forecast was for rain.

System Requirements

  • myServer5 or later
  • Microsoft Windows (Vista, 7, 8, 10)
  • PC with persistent Internet connection

Installation

Download and run the Weather App from myInstaller on the primary myServer PC. You can optionally download the sample weather scenes HTML5 for myServer and install them on your myServer PC.

Restart myServer.
