Storm Dongle Flashing Green

Chad Ohman Sep 13, 2017 10:01AM PDT

Hi there,

This morning I noticed the Storm dongle is flashing green rather than breathing green. I power cycled it and it went right back to flashing. Is this normal?

My dongle is flashing also. My storm is uploading data just fine.

Thank you for sharing the script!

Weird - my data hasn't uploaded since 5:24am this morning. We got a bunch of rain today and so that wasn't measured :(

No problem!

I know in the iOS app, the rain measurement is not being reported correctly (Already created a post). Are you referring to the Bloomsky Portal? For me, that is accurate.

Yeah - In the dashboard I don't have data after 5:24am, and WU hasn't shown Storm metrics since then either.

Alright - got it fixed I think. Had to unplug the dongle, delete the storm from the app, press the reset button and hold it as I plugged it back in. Went to green, then breathing red, then breathing green.

I know this may soun a little dense, but I'm just wanting to check/clarify...breathing green is a very slow flash, different than static green, and flashing green is faster? Is the slow flash, breathing, what it is supposed to be, rather than solid? (Mine is doing the slow flash and I thought something may be wrong, but sounds like that's what it's supposed be doing, so all is a-ok?)

Thank you

Yes the breathing/slow blinking is healthy. Sorry for the confusion.

I've the problem. The dongle is flashing green very fast (7-8 flashes for 1 second). And I can't pair the storm.
The connection with the router seem to be ok (i can see the dongle with my router). When I ping it, it's ok.
But the pairing is impossible.
Could someone help me please?

If it is rapidly blinking, I recommend unplugging the dongle for a few minutes and then plugging it back in to retry setup.

After installation, Storm worked for a few days flawlessly. Couple days ago, the dongle started to blink rapidly and no more data was received (i.e. same wind speed and same wind direction was displayed in app continuously). Just now, I took the Storm in, removed it from the app, resetted the dongle and took it offline. Then I added the dongle/Storm again through the whole setup process. Now it works and reports again. Will continue to observe.

I've had the same issue. My Sky2 dongle rapidly flashes green. Seems the only solution is to remove my Sky from the app, take it down off of my 16' mount, bring it inside, and completely go through the set up process. It works for a few weeks and then does it again. Removing it and remounting it after going through the set up process isn't what I call "fun."
