Getting a the Bloomsky camera to work at WU

Thinus van Rensburg May 18, 2017 09:19PM PDT

I have uploaded my Sky & Storm Unit to WU without a problem but cannot figure out how to get the camera to show up at WU.

As per a different thread and advice by James I deleted and re-connected my weatherstation https://bloomsky.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/2791272-bloomsky-unit-photo-upload-not-working-on-weather-underground-

I then linked up the webcam but the FTP login just gets rejected even if trying different FTP software.

I now have two versions of my camera on WUG but neitehr allows a ftp login - I even updated my WU password but no luck

Hopefully the two dud cameras will disappear after 24h as per WU's page as there seems to be no way of deleting them from there. I have also tried to put the cameraID in at the BloomfieldWU site but that also gets rejected

On the wun.bloomsky.com site put in the stationID, the CameraID, and your station key.

Then do not forget to associate the webcam with the weather station.

Once you have done this give it some time. The FTP upload often fails - but eventually one will get through.

I would delete the connection and try again if you aren’t seeing anything. Here’s the same link as OP first post:

https://bloomsky.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/2804916-%22530-you-aren-t-logged-in%22-issue-with-weather-underground-setup

The method that we recommend is FTP, but you shouldn’t need to use any other software to make it work. Edward is right, in the password section you would use your WU sign on.
