    Smile i-Vu Question

    Is there a way to set a dynamic icon that shows the sun during the day and the moon at night?
    Also, is there a way to show that same icon reflecting the current weather condition? Meaning partly cloudy, clear skies etc. I am using my broadcasted OA temp as the current temp but it would be nice to have the icon reflect the skies condition. I would also like to link current humidity but I dont have a humidity sensor on site. Can I link from a weather site?
    Thank you all!

    You could always use static pictures and do a hide/show on each picture depending on the OA conditions.

    For the humidity sensor, you can link to the weather channel, accuweather, etc. using the SOAP interface...

    Thanks Control8-
    Is there any way that you can give me specifics on both of these steps?
    I am very new to ivu and barely learned how to link points. How do I link to the weather channel?

    I typically use WeatherBug Widgets on my front screen to show the current local weather conditions. Below is a link, just drop the code they provide into an HTML [from the toolbar].

    A toggle button will also work to change from day to night. You will need to map a variable for the toggle button for it to change

    I havent used the SOAP, I am also interested in more info on this.
