Need access to observations in real-time but don’t want to have to monitor the API daily and continuously ask it for data? Need accurate and specific data for use in decision support services? Synoptic’s Alert and Push services give you, the user, access and complete control of the data you receive, dramatically reducing the amount of work for all parties. It allows users to "plug" into the real-time data streams after data checks have been applied. You can “listen” to all observations* or a certain subset dependent on your specifications. No duplicate data is sent via this service; the user only receives what they ask for. There are two such services: Push and Alert.

This service does just what its name implies. It pushes the predefined user-selected station and variable data to the user via a websocket connection.
The Alert service is also aptly named as it only sends data to the user that meets their selected alerting criteria. Interested in getting wind speed observations that exceed 30 mph or temperatures that fall below 0°F? The Alert service will only send you data that meets your needs.
*Proprietary data is only offered via this service through our Enterprise contract. See Pricing page for more information.
