    Hi Guys,

    I have installed docker version of “opensprinkler-weather” / local weather service.

    I can send data there from my local weather station. One question I have and haven’t been able to find is how often that should happen for OpenSprinkler to be happy. My weather station sends data like 4 times a minute, but I think OpenSprinkler just checks every couple of hours. So how often should I send new data to the local weather service?

    Cheers,

    // Jonas

    Another thing that is not completely clear is if temp and humidity should be live values or average over some time. The dailyrainin and rainin properties are well defined, but for tempf it just says “Outdoor temperature in fahrenheit”. It is somewhat confusing to have to average out measurements for two properties but not for the rest. Should tempf be the value that comes in from the weather station at that time, or should it be the average value over 24 hours? Same question for humidity
