The Weather Notifications API enables you to set weather-driven push notifications to applications. With predefined weather parameter threshold values, you are able to be informed of certain weather phenomena like when rain, strong winds or exceptional heat starts.
Be informed about noteworthy weather conditions before it is too late. Weather Notifications API enables you to set and receive weather-driven push notifications. Activate notifications using weather parameter values as triggers and always receive a push notification when the pre-set threshold value is forecasted to exceed (or is observed) at a chosen coordinate point.
All the notifications offered to the end-users are to be adjusted in the API in advance. End-users are allowed to switch them on/off based on the location they want. The API works in JSON allowing you to integrate this service into your application so that your end users can enjoy the benefits of getting tailored alerts.
A standard radius (e.g. 2 km) is set around the monitored coordinate point. The standard value of radius is dependent on the weather parameter used. With some parameters, the standard radius can be modified according to your specific needs.
The following parameters can be used as triggers for the notification.
The monitoring timeframes available vary between the parameters.
Energy companies, construction companies, and many other industries need to be prepared for certain weather conditions in advance. It takes time to monitor the weather all the time, so why not just get notified when needed? If the weather affects your business somehow, optimize your business in advance with the help of weather notifications. We are also happy to help you by providing tailored services when it comes to weather-driven notifications.
In addition to the Notification API, Vaisala can offer Notifications as a service so you don’t have to worry about managing the API yourself.
Notifications as a Service
Weather notifications can be requested from Vaisala as a service. Vaisala creates and maintains the notifications based on your specific needs. Notifications will be delivered as SMS or email messages to selected mobile phone numbers or email addresses. Tell us the locations and triggers, and we will tailor the service for you.
DSS Cloud Interface
Decision Support System (DSS) is a cloud-based system providing multiple weather monitoring tools for a variety of industries. Notifications can be incorporated to the system as a map-based tool. Coordinates for the notifications can be pinpointed on the map interface. The service is especially suitable for road engineers in winter who need to monitor conditions 24/7 but can’t sit in front of a screen all day’ or something similar.
