Turn Homey into an airspace radar and tracker based on ADS-B tracker info
Turn Homey into an aircraft radar or tracker. The radar information is based on ADS-B tracker info from opensky-network.org and from adsbexchange.com
- Ever wanted to know where that plane over your house is heading?
- Do you want to track the local Police Helicopter?
- Do you need a record of small planes flying over your estate too low?
- Interested in knowing where Military airplanes are?
- Do you want to track your pilot husband all over the world?
- Do you want a push message when your wife is taking the helicopter again?
Radar: Live data from aircrafts in radar range
For each radar you can see the number of aircraft in reach, and information from the nearest aircraft:
Tracker: Track an individual aircraft
For each tracker you can see the location, direction, altitude, speed, destination airport and track time:
Action flow cards
- Aircraft entering airspace
- Aircraft moving in airspace
- Aircraft leaving airspace
- Tracker came online
- Tracker info was updated
- Tracker went offline
- Aircraft went airborne (tracker)
- Aircraft landed (tracker)
With the flow cards you get the following tokens, depending on the selected data source. OpenSky is free to use, but has limited information. ADSB-Exchange has more information, but requires an API key that you can get for free when you feed data from your own ADSB-receiver.
- dist: The distance to the aircraft in kilometres.
- bearing: The bearing from the radar to the aircraft clockwise from 0° north
- alt: The altitude in meters adjusted for local air pressure.
- ground: True if the aircraft is on the ground
- km/h: The ground speed in km/h
- vert.: Vertical speed in meter per minute.
- species: The species of the aircraft (helicopter, jet etc.)
- mil: True if the aircraft appears to be operated by the military.
- icao: ICAO unique ID
- reg: The registration
- call: The callsign
- model: A description of the aircraft’s model. Usually also includes the manufacturer’s name.
- oprtr: The name of the aircraft’s operator.
- from: The code and name of the departure airport.
- to: The code and name of the arrival airport.
- help: True if the aircraft is transmitting an emergency squawk.
You can setup multiple radars anywhere in the world. As default it will be setup on the location of your Homey. For each radar you can set: * location (long, lat) * range (km) * min and max altitudes (m) * scan interval (seconds)
You can filter the results with a number of options:
You can setup multiple trackers. For each tracker you can set: * home location (long, lat). This is used to calculate the distance token. * ICAO or Registration or Callsign * scan interval (seconds)
If you like the app you can show your appreciation by posting it in the forum. If you really like the app you can buy me a beer.
