API Example

More advanced uses of the WeatherSTEM API can be used to request and display live or historic weather data. When used in combination with other tools like Flot Charts and the WeatherSTEM Flot plugin, you can create interesting visualizations of the weather at your favorite WeatherSTEM unit.
