What's the process to get soil temperature to upload to WU with PWS data?

Currently the SmartHUB can only upload data to wunderground from one sensor device.  As such, you can't add other data such as from a soil temperature probe.

Maybe in the future...

This would be a great feature to publish data from other sensors to Weather Underground.  I would like to include soil temperature from the Acurite soil probe.

I am in the Same Boat! i would like to get the Lake Temp from the Liquid Soil and Share it on my Website www.echolakeri.com but it's not reading the Data from the Probe itself it's the data from the sensor outside the water?

I would also purchase more sensors if there was a way to get it into WU

If you're in a hurry you use a meteobridge to send your soil temperature to WU and it will be reported. Here's mine with a meteobridge:

The soil temperature on WU is a little disappointing because they don't chart it like all other readings, but they do display it.

If you're not in a hurry then as George indicated maybe it will be added in the future for "free".

The funny thing about wunderground is that their protocol says they support things like multiple temp sensors, but I've never been able to get that to work.  I used to put a second temp sensor on soil temp simply because it was the only one I could get it to display.
