The awnet app allows you to connect your Ambient Weather Station WS-2000, WS-2902A, WS-2902B, WS-2902C or WS-5000 console to your WiFi router and the internet. The WS-2902As were first sold in 06/2018.
AMBWeatherPro 5.0.4 and WH2682 2.1.1 and above have added ambient account settings in the upload settings, and removed the WU and weathercloud settings.
Ratings and Reviews
The last random thing I did maybe worked
I agree with the MANY reviews that reported multiple failed attempts at connecting to Wi-Fi and the repeated crashes. I read the reviews and found multiple “solutions” that started to seem like “the last random thing I did” before it finally connected. Mine finally connected, so I thought I would share the last random thing I did before that occurred. Based on one review that indicated they used cellular data to connect, I turned the Wi-Fi OFF on my iPhone. I had also previously turned to Auto Join on the device wireless to OFF. I launched the awnet app and when I got to the screen where you switch to the device wireless, I went to settings, turned Wi-Fi ON and selected the device Wi-Fi. IT CONNECTED! Then there were the multiple steps to sign up for Wunderground and WeatherCloud which was time consuming, but really at this point I wasn’t turning back. Partway through, however, we had a weather-related power outage and the device did a factory reset. I put in some AAA batteries and persisted. I’m not sure it’s fully ready to go, but I did see my device readings in one of the various websites and/or apps. Gonna take a break now and look at it with fresh eyes later. I’m glad I have the week off to get this figured out.
Works great... if you’re lucky
Like many others, I’ve had my connection issuers. First time, it connected to WiFi no problem. I happened to be the garage near the main router by chance. I moved the station to a different room in the house and no connection issue. Whew.
One month later and after a power outage, the WiFi was lost and I could not reconnect after reading many reviews like turn iPhone WiFi off and off to the auto connect. No dice. What did work was me moving the unit back out to the garage. I think the unit was picking up the WiFi from the router abs not one of the 3 Apple Airports I use to spread the signal inside the house.
So, if you have the connection and later lose it, try moving the unit near the area where it first worked. Maybe this area is near the home main router.
WiFi Connect is a headache
Everyone here tries to explain how they “fixed” connecting the console to your router wifi, but none of that worked for me. I do believe you originally have to start off on your routers WiFi. You then have to switch to the console WiFi when prompted. I think you need to wait for your phones WiFi symbol at the top right of your screen to change from the WiFi to lte and then back to WiFi when you select the console WiFi. It won’t work until you see the WiFi symbol at the top right of your phone appear to signal it has connected to the weather console. The check mark alone on the WiFi list didn’t do it for me. You then need to enter your router info and password on the next screen while staying connected to the weather console. Hope this helps.
