Put Your Weather to Work
The Tempest Home Weather System enables users to integrate outside environmental information into smart home tech, third-party apps, and other services. Use your Tempest data to adjust your irrigation schedule based on the rain that’s fallen or the rain that’s forecast to fall. Turn on ceiling fans if the temperature is high, or configure freeze alerts to help protect your outdoor passion projects. With Tempest, you can turn your smart home into a genius!
The Tempest Weather System measures and reports the weather directly from your yard, making it the perfect companion for the Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller. Users can integrate their Tempest data to inform Rachio features like Rain Skip, Wind Skip, Freeze Skip, and more! See at least 20% more efficient watering with a sprinkler system that responds to your weather. Learn more about the Tempest integration with Rachio.

You can configure Siri Shortcuts by going to Settings -> Siri Shortcuts. Two shortcuts are provided: Current Conditions and Detailed Current Conditions. Both will display the same UI elements, however, they differ in the length of Siri’s spoken response. If you have more than one station, you can choose which station you would like to use while configuring the shortcut (and you can configure a shortcut for each station if you want). For more advanced users, the Current Conditions output is available in the Shortcuts app.
Link your Tempest account to your Google Home smart speaker and then you can ask Google Assistant for the current conditions and forecast for your station’s location. See the Integrations section in the Tempest app for more details.
Note: Only the English-speaking option is currently available. If you have multiple stations on your account, Google Assistant will return the first station on the account.
