Frequency of UDP messages by type


I’ve got a socket listener pulling in UDP messages from my hub and all I’m seeing come in are type rapid_wind, hub_status, device_status, and obs_st.

In reading the documentation there should also be obs_air, obs_sky (and also rain and lightning events, which I haven’t had a chance to receive). Do those messages not happen frequently (I’ve been watching about 15 minutes) or is there something I need to do to turn them on?

obs_sky and obs_air are sent from older Sky and Air devices. If you don’t have them, you obviously won’t see their info…

Thank you. I was just comparing those two messages with what I have in the obs_st and it looks like only the daily rain accumulation is missing. And the tempest rest can get that from the device itself.

Answers my question, thank you.

Daily rain accumulation doesn’t appear in the UDP messages on a Tempest. The UDP reference has a placeholder for it for the old Sky sensor, but it never had a value there (if I recall correctly).
