AcuRite Build Your Own Weather Station
OVERVIEW

Not sure which AcuRite Complete Home Weather Station to choose? With our WeatherShack Exclusive Build-Your-Own option, you can customize a AcuRite weather station that conforms to your specifications and requirements.

 

1. Choose which Integrated Multi-Weather Sensor that best represents the climate conditions that the sensor would operate within:

  • The PRO 5-in-1 integrated multi-weather sensor features a single solar panel for powering an internal aspirating fan.
  • The PRO+ 5-in-1 integrated multi-weather sensor features dual solar panels allowing the solar-powered internal aspirating fan to run more frequently for regions that the temperature is regularly above 90F (32.2C).

Both Integrated Multi-Weather Sensors are completely wireless that features a self-emptying tipping bucket rain collector for measuring rainfall, temperature, humidity, anemometer and a wind vane. The anemometer measures wind speed and the wind vane measures wind direction. The integrated multi-weather sensor is battery operated. The internal fan will assist in drawing ambient air through to reduce the heating effects of solar radiation, resulting in a more accurate air temperature measurement. Providing highly precise and easy-to-understand comprehensive data about the elements right in your backyard. The sensor is easy to setup and features a 2-year battery life for maintenance-free operation.

 

2. Choose how you wish to view the weather data:

  • View weather data solely from a standard display only.
  • View weather data from a PC Connect display. This enables the display to be connected to a Windows based PC via a USB port. Access your weather data online at MyAcuRite, an App for tablets or mobile devices. Access your weather conditions while away from home anytime from anywhere. Create custom alerts with MyAcuRite to receive an email or mobile alert when environmental conditions change and need your attention. Share weather information with Weather Underground using the Rapid Fire feature. Note: A PC Connect display requires connection to a computer that is always on with internet accessibility to view data online at MyAcuRite, on a tablet or mobile device or Weather Underground.
  • View weather data with MyAcuRite or an App for tablets or mobile devices by adding the Access HUB with or without a standard or PC Connect display. Connect the Access HUB to an Ethernet router to seamlessly transmit weather data to the internet. View your weather conditions while away from home anytime from anywhere from a PC or MAC. View current conditions, historical conditions with charts, graphs, high and low records. Receive hourly and daily weather forecasts that allow you to plan your day. Download your weather data to convenient spreadsheet forms for advanced research and reports of your weather's history. Create custom alerts with MyAcuRite to receive an email or mobile alert when environmental conditions change and need your attention. To remotely monitor indoor temperature and humidity with MyAcuRite, you may add a Wireless Indoor Room Sensor. You may also add a Wireless Outdoor Sensor to monitor temperature and humidity for additional outdoor areas. Share weather information with Weather Underground using the Rapid Fire feature.

Each display has a bold, easy to read screen that include indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, wind chill, rainfall, barometric pressure, a clock, calendar and more. Custom programmable alarms will alert you when weather conditions change. Some displays offer lightning detection with a lightning strike counter that displays a running total of lightning strikes detected, estimated distance, plus weekly and monthly totals. Each display stands upright for tabletop use or wall-mountable.

Did you know that you may have more than one display for your Integrated Multi-Weather Sensor? With having more than one display you can locate them throughout the home or office. Have one beside the couch or on the night stand beside the bed. The options are limitless! Only one PC Connect display is required for viewing the weather data online at My AcuRite or an App for tablets or mobile devices. You may choose a standard option for any additional displays.

Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

4 stars Good purchase.
05/20/2022
I really like the product, but I am not sure how accurate it is. Seems like the wind speed reads a little low and the rain gage measures less than a glass type we have near the sensor. But overall, I really like the product and it gives me a lot of good info.

5 stars Well made, easy to set up.

Good product. Hope it holds up. We'll see
By Rhea
From Bonner, MT
3 stars Good experience, good product.
04/22/2022
My only criticism would be that the screws that secure the plastic post to the top part, the device itself, were very hard to screw in. I had our first one for 5 years, very pleased with it. Only reordered because I dropped it when changing batteries and broke the wind arms off.
By Joe

5 stars Replacement sensor
04/18/2022
Don't know why the original would no longer connect? This worked fine as soon as the batteries went in.

Product was perfect replacement for my old unit that was torn down in a wind storm. Sync's with all my existing displays and uplink unit with zero problems
By Traci
From Madison, WI
5 stars This is my 2nd Acurite 5-1 Sensor.
04/17/2022
I'm very happy with my Acurite 5-1 machine. All the information it puts out is very accurate to the airport in town.
By Rono
From Las Cruces, NM
4 stars Concern with durability under the U.S. and MEX border skies.
04/10/2022
My main concern with this model is, how well will my particular (0614M) remain operative under the Las Cruces, NM, Mexico Border areas' sun? I've installed similar devices of like materials and electricals and witnessed their deterioration due to intense heat and UV radiation over time passage. I will put this product to the test, too. And the moment it does, I will kindly present notification.
