  • 3.4 - Scene code changed to use new Netatmo API grant access by replacing username and password with tokens. All VD's since v3.4 do not need Emoji VD to be installed to work properly.
  • 3.3.1 - Scene code changed to get rain amount for past 3 adn 6 hours to better support Irrigation Control VD. All VD's corrected some translations. Rain gauge VD changed labels content to display last 3 hours rain amount
  • 3.3 - Check below version description or consult User manual for more details
  • 3.2 - Corrected rain sensor code and cleaned some bugs in scene. Indoor modules corrected handling of CO2 measurement, improved updating code.
  • 3.0 – This new version is completely redesigned and made independent. Does not require Main scene FTBE and Weather State VD anymore. Updating is now synced with Netatmo cloud so readings are always up to date.
  • 2.0.2 – Code optimized and resolved some bugs

Here is look of the Netatmo Weather set:



Enjoy coding and your new Netatmo weather station suite! :-)

Hi Sankotronic,

I´m a fan of your VDs. Everything is very good explained, so that even i can use the VDs.

But right now i have got a question:  

I would like to use Information of the global Variable "NetatmoWeather".

Right now i use this LUA code in a scene:


local nT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("NetatmoWeather")) -- read global variable 
local stationNo = 1  -- set station number 
local d_Rain = wT.netatmo[stationNo].rain.day 



But in the debug is written:

[fatal] Unknown exeption: /opt/Fibaro/scenes/179.lua:10:attempt to index global `wT`(a nil value)


I would be very happy if you can help me, because i want to use this parameter to decide if i have to water the garden.


Thanks for your support

Response from the author:

Hi @MarkusG,


Thank you for the review.


Regarding the error in your code change this line of code:

local nT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("NetatmoWeather")) -- read global variable

to be like this:

local wT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("NetatmoWeather")) -- read global variable

I checked user manual ant there is a typo in examples how to read values from global variable. Local variable is named nT and should be wT. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello, setting up went ok but still I have error in main scene: 


[DEBUG] 00:11:10: 2019-08-24 00:11:10.808135 [ fatal] Unknown exception: /opt/fibaro/scenes/8.lua:101: attempt to concatenate local 'room' (a nil value)


can you assist?

Response from the author:

Hi @loopez,


Just move all devices from Unassigned room to some other room and error should not occur again. Thank you for reporting. Will correct that for next release.
