I am doing my initial install and get the following error when entering the initial info:

The station id as shown in the app starts with ST- , but that input is not accepted with or without the “-” . Am I entering the station id incorrectly? Any suggestions?


The ‘ST-’ is the Tempest serial number… NOT the station ID.

That did it thanks !

I misread the Station ID in the app. If you look a little more, there is the “real” station id in there.

Thanks again for all your help!



So what do we put into the TEMPEST ID Field?
Nobody has mentioned where to find the TEMPEST ID.

I have tried the 4 digit number stamped on the bottom of my TEMPEST,
but wfpiconsole will ONLY display the Forecast, and Realtime Windspeed/Direction.
No Temperatures, No Wind Averages/Gusts, No Solar, No rainfall.
However all of that is reported on the Tempest app, and weather-display is also picking it up.

Open the Tempest App. Click on SettingsStations[your station name]Status. Scroll down till you you the details of your Tempest device and look for Device ID

Found that when I changed from Air/Sky to Tempest,
I needed to remove SkyHeight and AirHeight
and more importantly enter a value in TempestHeight.
Otherwise wfpiconsole will not start.
All working good now :slight_smile:
