Display targeted content depending on changes in weather

Create a set of weather triggers within the NowSignage platform, that will automatically override content on a playlist. Set this up by inputting the exact location of your screen and choosing which weather triggers you wish to use and what content you want them to play. NowSignage takes live data from OpenWeather API, and uses this to trigger your content.

Trigger content when the temperature changes

Define a temperature range, and a playlist of content you wish for this to trigger. You can set up any number of different triggers that will all take place automatically. When the outside temperature changes, so will your signage! For example, trigger cold drink advertisements when the temperature reaches above 20 degrees.

Define specific weather conditions to cause a content trigger.

Choose from a selection of specific weather conditions; Thunderstorm, rain, drizzle, clear, cloudy, and snowing. You could use this to invite someone inside for a hot drink to escape the rain, or a cold pint of lager in the beer garden under clear skies!

Frequently Asked Questions

Weather triggers in digital signage enable dynamic content updates based on real-time weather conditions. By integrating weather data into content management systems, businesses can tailor messages, promotions, or advertisements to align with current weather conditions. For instance, displaying ads for hot beverages during cold weather or promoting outdoor activities on sunny days increases relevancy and captures viewer interest. This dynamic approach not only enhances engagement but also improves the effectiveness of displayed content by making it contextually relevant to the audience’s immediate environment.

Implementing weather triggers requires consideration of several factors. Firstly, selecting reliable weather data sources ensures accurate and up-to-date information for content adaptation. Secondly, defining specific triggers and criteria for content changes based on weather conditions, such as temperature, precipitation, or season, is crucial. Additionally, creating adaptable content templates and variations that align with different weather scenarios facilitates seamless transitions and relevant messaging on digital signage displays. Finally, continuously monitoring weather patterns and adjusting triggers or content accordingly ensures that the displayed information remains timely and resonates with the audience.

Weather-triggered content updates significantly impact audience engagement by delivering contextual and timely information. Tailoring content based on weather conditions increases the relevance of displayed messages, capturing viewer attention and prompting action. For example, displaying sunscreen ads during hot days or promoting rain gear during inclement weather resonates with viewers’ immediate needs, encouraging engagement and influencing purchasing decisions. This personalised approach creates a more immersive and relatable experience for audiences interacting with digital signage, ultimately fostering increased engagement and a higher likelihood of response to the displayed content.
