I'm New to FIBARO and on going to install my HC2.

I observed that something was not going well with YR Weather, found many users claiming the same problem.

because of that I decided to use this feature. 

II am really satisfied about it, if some problem is because of my low knowledge.

 

Thanks @Sankotronic
