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 standard 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 solely from a display or select the PC Connect* display option that enables the display to be connected to a PC or MAC via a USB port. The PC Connect feature is a new way to access your weather data. View your data from the display, online at MyAcuRite.com or on your smartphone/tablet by using the free AcuRite mobile app for iPhone, Android or iPad. Create email and phone alerts to notify you when conditions change or your presets are reached. Stream data to Weather Underground with Rapid Fire updates.

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 on your smartphone/tablet by using the free AcuRite mobile app for iPhone, Android or iPad. You may choose the 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.

* PC Connect feature requires connection to a computer that is always on with internet accessiblity to view data on a mobile device, MyAcuRite and Weather Underground.

I bought this same sensor 5+ years ago, "if" I took the time to check the batteries I would have found the sensor was STILL PERFECT! But the batteries had "wiggled" loose. The receiver is still fine - so now I have 2 complete systems, my son will get the old system :) I just wish the transmission from the sensor to receiver was more frequent, I feel peak wind gusts are lost if not longer than the 13 second transmit intervals

4 stars Good Product
05/19/2018
This product is very nice for amateur use. The remote control and recording feature is very convenient for data acquisition. I only have two problems with it: 1. The plastic deteriorates and becomes friable in the sun after about a year; 2. The attachment arms for the spinning anemometer are very thin and break if bumped or in a wind greater than 45 knots. Metal or reinforced arms would be very helpful.

don't know what type of bearings are used in the anemometer, but would like to find a way, and what to use to lubricate them! The unit has worked very well for the 6 or 7 years we've had it but when it quit, the bearings were growling, obviously wanting lubrication! I didn't discover until when I tried to register the new on that the anemometer could be replaced.

4 stars Exactly as ordered

Quick service and exact replacement parts I was seeking. Unfortunately the calibration is off but should be an easy fix. Would use weathershack again.

5 stars My First Weather Station

The weather station was super easy to setup and tracks everything I need. I bought it with the intention of sharing data with Weather Underground, and I am now broadcasting the weather from my backyard to the world!

5 stars Nice weather station
03/12/2018
The unit is lightweight enough to handle easily, but seems to be sturdy enough to hold up over time. A lot less expensive than my other station, and seems to be every bit as good.

4 stars Just set this up.

A little tough to mount, but set up easily and transmitting data OK
