Oregon Scientific WMR100 client for Linux/BSD/etc.
- Oregon Scientific WMR100

The WMR100/200 use a proprietary protocol for their USB connection.
It's very useful for enthusiasts running a headless Linux box to collect and analyze data from this link, but unfortunately the protocol isn't openly documented, nor are clients provided for this platform.
This simple C program handles the USB protocol of the WMR100, and translates to a JSON format, easy for parsing/analysing.
You can output to:
- a file
- a zeromq socket
You'll need to setup the udev rules (see udev/README) if you want to run this not as root. This is due to how libhid accesses the USB ports.
To install, copy wmr100 to your path.
One time install for osx
To keep the default HIDManager from taking the wmr100, run this once:
If you want to use different software to read the wmr100 device, you should undo
this by running
make unsetup_osx and then reboot so that the HIDManager will
take control of the device again.
To install on raspberry pi use this script:
This will dump data to data.log as well as stdout.q as stdout. You can then process periodically data.log with a script in python/perl/ruby/your language of choice, and frob with the data that way.
Or publish to a zeromq socket: ./wmr100 -z 'tcp://*:8790'
