Ambient Weather Station

The Ambient Weather Station integration retrieves local weather information via personal weather stations from Ambient Weather.


Using this integration requires both an Application Key and an API Key. To generate both, simply utilize the profile section of your Ambient Weather dashboard.

To add your Ambient Weather PWS to your Home Assistant installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  api_key: YOUR_API_KEY

Configuration Variables

api_key string Required

The API key to access the service.

app_key string Required

The Application key to access the service.


Adding Ambient Weather Station to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

Local API Option

This integration communicates with Ambient Weather PWS units via the Ambient Weather Cloud. Users desiring a local option are encouraged to explore the Ecowitt family of devices, which are able to read RF signals directly from the PWS and transmit them to a variety of other applications, including ecowitt2mqtt (which supports MQTT Discovery), or the built-in Ecowitt integration.
