Uploading and retrieving 'indoor' temperature and humidity values

Hi,

I have just configured my PWS to upload weather data to Wunderground. I would like to upload indoor temperature and humidity values as well.

I am using pywws and have edited the underground_template_1080.txt template to add;

#temp_in "'indoortempf' : '%.1f'," "" "temp_f(x)"#
#hum_in "'indoorhumidity' : '%.d',"#

where indoortempf and indoorhumidity are defined in the API.

However I am not seeing these anywhere on the Wunderground site for my PWS.

How do I see/check the values being uploaded? Or is the fact I can't see them indicating that the values are not being sent?

Many thanks!
Ben

Is there no way to store/retrieve indoor temp/humidity values? It is defined in the API but I can't see where I can access it via an API query...

Want to focus on it, but I can't figure out any reference about indoor temperature and humidity in the current version of Weather Underground API. Can you point out the internet address where the whole thing about them is defined?

Here is the WIKI page which outlines the various PWS upload parameters;

I am using pywws with a modified template to include the indoortempf field, but I can't see it anywhere on my PWS data on Wunderground and can't work out how to access it via the Wunderground API.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Ben

I think I see what you mean, unfortunately this may be a WU limit; limit as "ok you're allowed to send indoor temperature and humidity values, even we do not publish (or record?) them at this time, via public website or via API".

This way also match the trouble I ran into before: I was looking for the reading endpoint for indoor parameters in the API or something, but this feature is not implemented :(

You can see indoor temp using Wunderstation iPad app. I tried to send humidity too but the application doesn't update anything.
