WATER & ENERGY SAVING INTEGRATIONS
Rachio: The Tempest System is compatible with the Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller through a native integration within the Rachio app. Sync your yard care with the natural weather patterns around your home to get the most out of your yard maintenance systems and keep your yard and garden looking happy and healthy all season.
Nest: Control your home's heating and cooling via IFTTT integrations with Nest heating and air. By tuning your thermostat to the real weather happening outside your home, you can minimize the time you’re running your Nest heating and cooling system and maximize your home energy savings in the process.
Hunter Douglas Blinds: Let the intensity of the sun determine whether the blinds in your home are open or closed automatically with the help of the IFTTT integration with Hunter Douglas blinds. Keeping your blinds closed when the sun is intense can help keep your home cool and minimize the need for running air conditioning units or fans.
Tidbyt: This retro screen with a sleek walnut enclosure can display nearly anything, including Tempest data. The Tidbyt app is straightforward and simple to use, with pre-built applets even users without coding experience can master. Showcase your home’s weather data in a simple yet fun display.
SmartMixin: Since childhood weather geek Vincent Toupet has been captivated by collecting weather data. Fast forward to adulthood and Vincent is still obsessed with weather data, but collects his measurements with a more sophisticated personal weather station, enjoying the perks of being able to view his weather data even while out on the go. Vincent became frustrated with the lack of data analytics in the user interface of most stations and decided to find a solution. He created an application that would allow him to manipulate his weather data to create reports, compare weather with the previous day or year, and more. Thus, his app SmartMixin was born! SmartMixin integrates with Tempest seamlessly to produce another app experience when using your data.
Tesla: We love finding creative new uses for Tempest data, and for Tesla owners, this handy automation was too good not to share. One user leveraged IFTTT and Tessie webhooks to stop charging his Tesla when his Tempest Weather System detects lightning nearby.
Phillips Hue Smart Lighting: Here's what you get when you combine Phillips Hue Smart Lighting, a simple IFTTT applet, and a Tempest in the backyard! When temperatures outside drop below 20 degrees, the lights turn purple. When they dip below freezing, the lights change to blue. Rain? The lights turn green!
Roku: This one technically counts as a display, but we thought it was too cool not to include in the cool integrations category. Display your Tempest data on your Roku device by adding the WeatherFlow Data Viewer V2 channel to your list of channels and following the startup directions.
These integrations may be some of our favorites, but they just scratch the surface of what's possible with a Tempest. Find more ways that you can use your Tempest data by checking out our Integrations Page, IFTTT, and staying up to date with our Tempest Community Forum.
