EasyWeather IP will not run on my Mac OS Mojave. Is there any other software that I can use to see my PWS data?

I am running an Aercus WeatherRanger PWS that uploads directly via my router to WU. I used to use EasyWeather IP to see my PWS data on my Mac but since moving to Mojave EasyWeather will not run. Is there any other software that I can use to see my PWS data?

I would recommend adding an Ecowitt GW1000 to your station. The GW1000 will pickup your Aercus sensors. The GW1000 also connects to your WiFi. The Mac can then run Weather-Display software (that is what it is called) and see the GW1000 on your network. The best part of this investment is that if you later decide to upgrade your station sensor to something like the Ecowitt HP2551 the GW1000 still works with it and you can continue using Weather-Display software. Or you can upgrade to a Davis Vantage Pro 2 and the Weather-Display software also works with it. You gain much much better software and ability do much more with your data like sending data to many more websites and you gain more analysis tools.

You can also use the GW1000 without Weather-Display software. So your Mac isn't needed. With just the GW1000 you'll just be limited to only uploading to WU, WeatherCloud, PWSweather, Ecowitt.net, and WOW.

Besides Weather-Display there are other software that is also compatible with the GW1000. You can run a Meteobridge device.

So there are several options. The key is having a the GW1000.

There is yet another option without the GW1000 and that is to run WeeWx. But it would require connecting your station in such a way on the network so that WeeWx could intercept the WU packets (several ways to accomplish this and all are a bit advanced technically). The GW1000 makes this trivial as it just forwards the data to the WeeWx system easily. So WeeWx would be easier to run with the GW1000 using its Customized server settings.

In summary there are 3 software solutions.
- Weather-Display software
- Meteobridge (it's software running on a travel router making it not a router)
- WeeWx

Only WeeWx doesn't require the GW1000 but I would still recommend it. Be sure to order a GW1000 to match your station's frequency. Since you have an Aercus I think it is 433 MHz. The GW1000 comes in 3 frequency versions, 433, 868, and 915 MHz.

I don't know why this forum duplicates my posts that I edit. I can't delete them.

I think only the last version of my 3 posts is the most recent edited version with more info


I said I wouldn't come back to this forum. I don't know why I did. This forum software is terrible. I don't know why WU doesn't switch to a better forum platform.

I'm not coming back to post however tempting it might be.
