    Your AWEKAS Station's ID is the unique identification code of your weather station on AWEKAS.

    You can find the code number in the URL of your browser, if you view the instrument panel page of your station (or other specific pages of your station).

    For example, if the URL at your instrument panel page is , your Station's ID is 1234 (last one to five digits in the URL)

    You can also find your Station's ID, if you:

    1) klick "My station panel" in My AWEKAS (rightmost box in the navigation bar at the top of the AWEKAS main page)

    2) log in, if you aren't already

    3) at the lower end of the page, klick "To the information page of the station" (red arrow symbol)

    4) the box, which is giving informations about your station, shows the ID in line 8

    We are very pleased to announce the presentation of AWEKAS Station's Web's new feature pack 2018!

    We finally implemented what many of you suggested:

    1.) AWEKAS Station's Web alarm service:

    An alarm or information email will be sent to you when personally defined parameters are hit, exceeded or undercut. Thus you can easily and automatically receive e.g. warnings for high wind speed or high amounts of rain.

    For further information please see:

    2.) AWEKAS Station's Web email service:

    The Station's Web mail service sends you or any other recipient automatically generated hourly, daily or monthly summaries of your weather data. The emails can be sent as graphic HTML emails or basic text documents.

    For further information please see:

    3.) AWEKAS Station's Web presentation mode:

    This was designed to automatically switch between the pages of your Station's Web. The pages that should be viewed and the intervals of switching are adjustable in the settings of your Station's Web. The presentation mode allows you to employ AWEKAS Station's web e.g. in presentations of any occasion, in showrooms or for informative purposes.

    The AWEKAS alarm service informs Station's Web users via email if certain, definded parameters are hit. The emails are automatically generated by the AWEKAS servers.

    Any parameter that you send to AWEKAS can be used as a condition for a information or alarm email. You can choose the value of the parameter and if you wish to be informed if it is hit (=), undercut (<) or exceeded (>).

    You can also define how often you wish to be informed if certain condition is hit. In addition, you can set categories for information only, warnings or alarm.

    After more than one year of development and uncountable hours of coding, the day has come.
    AWEKAS is introducing the new instrument designer!

    As of now, it is possible to design your personal instrument page. It is very simple and does not require any coding knowlegde. 14 different gauges are avaible, which can be adjusted in size, colour and position to your own preferences.

    Especially for the use at your own website, the colour of the background can be changed, too.

    To get to the instrument designer, please klick:

    During the testing phase, the result can be viewed at[yourawekasid] as a "special instrument page". After the testing period, the instrument panel will be able to view at the usual URL (/instrument.php).

    The new instrument designer has many benefits, including:

    • modern HTML5 Code without Flash can be viewed in modern browsers without restrictions

    • individually adjustable (AWEKAS Plus feature)

    • automatic AJAX actualization of the page (gauges are beeing refreshed without having to refresh the entire page)

    • different layouts can be set

    • can be adjusted for your own website (AWEKAS Plus feature)

    • measurement units can be changed for every gauge individually (i.e. wind speed in m/s and knots in one tool)

    Please report problems or errors of the instrument designer in this thread. We will fix them as soon as possible.

    It is planned to offer templates for the generation of the instrument page later. Therefor, we want to use the best self-created instrument pages. If your individually adjusted instrument page should be a template, please post a screenshot and your AWEKAS ID in this thread.

    The instrument designer uses the new layout of AWEKAS. This layout will be expanded to entire AWEKAS later.
