  Information chat-bot
Posted by: krzysztof - 2023-04-10, 13:01 - Forum: Website, Maps and Applications - Replies (2)

Hello,
I'm a computer science student, a software developer, and I run several open-source projects. In my free time, I also like to photograph storms and various meteorological phenomena. I came up with the idea of writing a simple bot that will send me a private message on Discord when there is a storm in my area, so that I can prepare my equipment for photography and set everything up for example: for a timelapse. I would like to use data from the Blitzortung/Lightningmaps service for this purpose, but I don't know if this is in compliance with the rules, and if so, I don't know actually from which server I could retrieve this data.

By the way, I have already once tried to contact by email the people in charge of the Blitzortung/Lightningmaps project in terms of asking if there would be a need for help in maintaining or creating some tools/software for these projects, because this project is a perfect combination of my two passions (software and storms) and I would love to contribute in some way to the development.

Best Regards,
Krzysztof

  System Blue Warteschlange
Posted by: BlitzerZ112 - 2023-03-27, 07:17 - Forum: Non-English - Replies (2)

Hallo
Ich bin neu und warte schon seit geraumer Zeit auf das System Blue.
Leider bewegt sich die Wartenummer nicht mehr.
Habe mir jetzt ein Gewitterwarner besorgt zum Löten und er funktioniert super, leider ist es schwierig den mit meiner WetterStation und dem PC zu verbinden.

Meine Frage das System Blue wird es noch welche geben oder würde das Projekt eingestellt?

  power company installed new meter, poor detection since
Posted by: genewitch - 2023-03-13, 05:43 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (6)

my power company installed a new meter about 8 days ago, and since then my channel C signal has gone haywire most of the time, and occasionally other channels.

It sounds like very fast Morse code on the system blue piezo speaker. It happens a couple of times per hour, usually around the 35 minute mark.

I am going to open a communication to the power company tomorrow, in hopes either the old meter style or a manual read meter is appropriate

I happen to think that my lightning detection aids the power company, so it should at least be symbiotic, rather than adversarial;

whatever, though, right? "must accept noise"

  What Sensor is Best Suited for My Needs?
Posted by: BlitzortungFan - 2023-03-12, 18:41 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - No Replies

Hello Blitzortung community,
I am seeking advice on which lightning detection sensor would be best suited for my needs, taking into account the following criteria in order of importance: 

1. Accuracy - I require a lightning detection sensor that can provide precise strike data. 
2. Real-time detection - It is important that the sensor detects strikes as soon as possible. 
3. Sensitivity - As I am in a flat region surrounded by mountains, I need a lightning detection sensor with high sensitivity to detect strikes from a distance. 
4. Mountainous surroundings - The sensor should be capable of detecting strikes in mountainous surroundings. Coverage - I would like the sensor to have good coverage of the area, even in difficult terrain. 
5. Other important factors - Any other important factors that I should consider when selecting a lightning detection sensor. 

If you have experience with lightning detection sensors in Europe, particularly in flat regions with mountainous surroundings, or have any other insights or recommendations to share, please let me know. Thank you in advance for your help!

  Powering Blue Board
Posted by: lostinignorance - 2023-01-07, 20:49 - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (7)

I am looking for ideas on the feasibility of possibly of powering the system blue.

POE powered:
Use a POE to USB adapter (Something like PoE Splitter with MicroUSB Plug)

Solar with super caps
Use more super caps, but concept is there (Something like 5v Solar Power Supply)

Can anyone lend some incite into how they have been powering their devices outside of the basic USB plug?

Smile How to register/2nd owner
Posted by: rutrut - 2022-12-30, 17:19 - Forum: Hardware, Software, Lightning Physics - Replies (6)

Hello,

I just bought a used system blue.  System is online and working properly, but shows old owners info.  In reading, to create a new account for myself, I need to use my email as the username and device ID as the password when trying to login for the first time?  One problem arose when I discovered that I do not have a device ID listed on the status page.  I also tried the link on the status page (tracker.blitz......) and get a 404 error from the site.  According to the documentation, I should see a button on the top of the controller page as well to get an account.  It is not there.

Can someone point me in the direction to the process of getting this re-registered?

Thank You
