Configuration

Adding Ambient Weather Station to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.

  • In the sidebar click on Configuration.

  • From the configuration menu select: Integrations.

  • In the bottom right, click on the Add Integration button.

  • From the list, search and select “Ambient Weather Station”.

  • Follow the instruction on screen to complete the set up.

After completing, the Ambient Weather Station integration will be immediately available for use.

Local API Option

This integration communicates with Ambient Weather PWS units via the Ambient Weather Cloud. Users wishing to explore a local option are encouraged to explore the Ecowitt GW1000, a small device that is able to read RF signals directly from the PWS and transmit them to a variety of other applications, including ecowitt2mqtt (which supports MQTT Discovery).
