Focused Sensor Data Collection
Unlike regional weather predictions from sources like the news or online, AcuRite professional weather station products rely on sensors that collect organic data right from your backyard. AcuRite's 5-in-1 sensor-based weather station tracks specific sets of weather related variables, including changes in temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure to generate a forecast with pinpoint accuracy personalized for your location. The sensor is wireless and simple to install.
Plan the day with confidence with your own weather and weather prediction information - pinpoint accuracy right from your own backyard. The AcuRite Professional Weather Station uses patented Self-Calibrating Technology to provide your personal forecast of 12 to 24-hour weather conditions. Self-Calibrating Forecasting is generated from weather data measured by a sensor in your yard - giving you the most accurate forecast available for your exact location. PC Connect feature transmits your weather data to your Windows PC and enables you to use My AcuRite software for remote monitoring via the internet or a smartphone. The illuminated color LCD display includes indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed/direction/chill, rain, barometric pressure, clock, date and more. Personalize the Weather Ticker to display the information you want. Custom programmable alarms will alert you when weather conditions change. Display stands upright for tabletop use and is wall-mountable. The patent-pending wireless outdoor sensor features 5 different technologies in one easy-to-mount unit: thermometer, hygrometer, wind speed anemometer, wind direction vane and a self-emptying rainfall collector cup. Weather station display is powered by a 4.5V power adapter (included; recommended for optimal display color) or 6 AA alkaline batteries (optional; not included). Wireless sensor is powered by 4 AA alkaline or lithium batteries (not included). Lithium batteries recommended for use in outdoor sensor for temperatures below –4 degrees Fahrenheit (-20 degrees Celsius). One-year limited warranty. It's more than accurate, it's AcuRite.
Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1. Relatively easy to set up, even with the rather involved rain gauge calibration procedure.
2. Seems to be fairly accurate with readings as compared to third party sources (AccuWeather, Weather Channel, Wunderground).
3. Entry level pricing.
4. Weather ticker provides interesting bullet facts about the current and average readings.
5. Customer support was very quick to answer the phone and resolved my issue immediately (weather vane drag due to being pushed into the body of the 5-in-1 during shipment).
1. As others have written, this is NOT a color display weather station. It is a backlit color template over a monochrome LCD display.
2. Backlighting of the indoor 'color' station increases the ambient indoor temperature reading by 5F! Granted, this is a simple math compensation to make, but should I even have to do that?
3. The weather ticker is not easily read from any angle other than straight on. This is a nit pick since the fact is, it's gee-whiz feature to begin with.
4. The online setup and registration of the 5-in-1 is anything but straight-forward or user friendly. A very simple "You must register your MAC address with the Accu-Link PC software before going to the Accu-Link website and entering the MAC address in that program" sentence would have worked great. It seems fairly obvious when put that way, but it is NOT obvious and the directions are unclear. Once this task is done, however, the rest of the operation is enjoyable and the widgets are far easier to read on the laptop than on the LCD 'color' weather station.
5. The buttons on the LCD 'color' weather station are, in a word, atrocious! They are prone to sticking and double selections. There is, or soon will be, a problem with durability, tactile response, and, well, they're just "Easy Bake Oven" cheap.
6. The ability to use this to couple with the Accu-Link or Wunderground sites requires an always-on Windows PC (not MAC) USB connection to the 'color' weather station's USB port. There is an add-on internet bridge sold separately, but I'm not familiar with how that works. My thought is that it must be connected to both the 'color' weather station's USB port and directly wired to a router, but that's only a guess.
The 5-in-1 does what it's advertised to do: it measures the data points relative to current local weather, inside and outside. It's a relatively inexpensive springboard into the world of weather geekdom. There is so much potential in this product that is murdered by the ergonomically inept and misleading 'color' indoor weather station. The fact that the temperature change caused by the backlighting on the 'color' weather station was given the OK by an engineer and the marketing team kept a straight face when they called this a 'color' display at all...frankly, that lops three stars off of this item. It earned back a half star simply because it does sample and report the weather conditions and, once you have worked out the MAC address registration between the two software packages, it is a breeze to register it with Wunderground. This is NOT a 3 star rating, it is a weak 2.5 star. My advice is to look at Oregon Scientific or Davis, etc., and save up for a more robust, weather station. That said, this is a very good device/tool to use for learning weather and how the patterns are interrelated. Maybe a stellar device for a middle school science project, but not a weathergeek device.
Radio transmission is good and strong with my unit. It's about 100ft, as the crow flies, from the bridge and the display unit. It is also separated by a couple walls. Signal strength is good on both units, and data is transmitted without a problem. When selecting your location, be sure to insert the four AA batteries and then take the 5-in-1 out to the location and verify that it is communicating with your display console, before placing your permanent mounting post.
It comes with a couple mounting options. I chose the one that mounts to a flat surface, or a post (at least 4in wide). I got a 10ft 4x4 at HD, and planted it in a hole 2ft deep, filled with QuickCrete. Plumbed and leveled the post, let it set for a day, then mounted the 5-in-1 at the top. Tools and supplies you will need to mount the unit to the post are basically a ladder, a phillips screw driver, a carpenter's level, and a compass.
There is a plastic strip inserted to protect the rain gauge mechanism during shipment. Do not remove that until the 5-in-1 is secured to the mount on the post, but don't forget to remove it when you are finished installation. Also, use a ladder that is tall enough for you to look down on the 5-in-1. So that you can watch the leveling bubble in the top of the unit, and make sure it's centered when you lock it down. Also prior to locking it down, using your compass, line up the unit north-south according to the needle, with the solar panel facing south. The leveling bubble will be centered, the solar panel will be facing south, and the unit will be aligned north-south when you tighten the locking/mounting screws.
Once the 5-in-1 is mounted and secured then you are finished. Remove the shipping strip from the bottom of the unit, and your weather station will be fully operational.
This little weather station is still going strong. It's operating on the same, original batteries, and signal is still strong to the base station and bridge. The mounting pole has warped a little bit. So will have to re-align the station when winter is over. However, it still reports accurate wind speed/direction, and reports temps. The rain gauge was amazing last summer. Reported rain fall in real time (i.e. as it was raining), and the online connection maintains a running log of rain totals day to day.
My only compliant is that daytime temps consistently read about 5 degrees high. There is supposed to be a little fan that blows air across the temperature sensor, so that direct solar heating of the chassis does not affect the reading. Unfortunately, either the fan stopped working, or it simply doesn't do the job. If I place the unit in shade, then the solar panel won't get enough light, and rain totals might be incorrect. Temp readings are accurate during the night, on cloudy days, and at times when the Sun is not shining directly on it.
The website is also a nice feature. I can check the weather station online from anywhere. It also linked up nicely to Weather Underground.
That said, the single-cell unit does work fine, signal is strong, base unit display is bright and readable, many configurable items. Wind senses down to 1mph and rain measure seems spot on.
