Been waiting all my life for this. Review by a6asics
After waiting approximately 6 months for the 1050C to arrive in stock, I finally was able to purchase one in January. It was SO worth the wait! Setup was fairly straightforward and weather data has been pretty accurate for the most part. Someone mentioned in a previous post about auto refreshing the data..it's a breeze with Firefox or Chrome - just install a "Reload Every" add-in, set the parms and voila! The support from Acu-Rite has been very fast whenever I had any questions. I too set it up to work with Weather Underground....I have shared my link on Facebook and many of my friends have been impressed. My next wish from Acu-Rite is that they upgrade the Backyard Weather app to allow the user to customize and relocate the icons...other than that - it's amazing.

Pleased Review by Brittany
The weather station was easy to install as was the internet bridge. I've been sharing with Weather Underground and setup was easy. I've been so excited with my weather station. I live between two larger cities and wanted to know what the weather is doing right here not to my north or my south. I am eager when it rains to see how much we receive. I hope to pass my enthusiasm to my kids as I share what is going on with the weather and the station on a daily basis. (Posted on 4/2/13)
Good equipment, good service. Review by Mike-KD9KC
I had the LaCross system for about 2 years. In that period the wind speed sensor quit 3 times. The first time it was warrantee. The second time I had to pay for it. After the third time I donated it to the trash man.
A friend told me he had the AcuRite system, and it was even connected to the internet. I was able to log in and see his weather. This system went on sale over Christmas, so I bought it. I also bought a 1015 display unit extra.
Several months after setting it up, the bridge failed. I spent about 2 weeks trying everything I could to get it working. I was not successful, so I E-mailed for help.
The E-mail was a little slow in getting replied to. But once in contact, the replies were quick enough, and within a day a new bridge was on the way.
Although sent Fed-X, the bridge took 8 days to arrive. After unpacking it, I had the entire system up and running again in 30 minutes.
So I guess my only complaint is that service was S-L-O-W. (Posted on 3/25/13)
Great family fun Review by Sandra
I received this as a gift while all my family was around. Installing it and setting it up was a lot of fun and a great learning experience the younger ones.
I am amazed at all the information I am able to get and love sharing with my friends. (Posted on 3/18/13)
Worth the wait for the bridge & awesome customer service Review by Greg
Overall, I am very satisfied with my 1055 Weather Station. The internet bridge has been worth the wait and delivers the ability to publish data to online web portals without the need for always on PC connection I had hopped.
• Internet Bridge broadcast weather data to online web portals and an older 1035 display
• Internet Bridge removes the need for always on PC to send data to online web portals
• The ± trend on the 1055 display is easy to read and a handy feature
• The 1055 4, 8, & 12 hour forecast has been accurate and is an excellent display enhancement
Could Do Betters
• Internet Bridge does not publish peak wind gusts to wunderground
• Internet Bridge blinking blue lights could be a little less frequent (they can be supressed via the web interface for the bridge, but this takes away the visible indicator the bridge is receiving and sending data)
• Would like to have the option for AC and DC power to the display like the 1035 does
• Internet Bridge set up, although fairly well documented, is not as intuitive as the set up story board suggests
• The 1055 display, although smaller and more ergonomic in design is not as easily read as the one view page display on the 1055
• Backlight display on the 1055 is a little short.
Also, here is a shout out to the AcuRite Customer Support team for a job well done. Any engagements I have made with Support have been quickly addressed, root cause of issue explained and resolved with 100% satisfaction. The Support team is first class and customer focused to be sure.

After an extended setup time it works perfect Review by MM
I purchased the unit from Costco and everything worked great excep-t the bridge. Customer service sent a new bridge and it still did not work. After some time, I gave up and wrote it off then received a email from Costco notifying me of the problems. Contacted support again and presto the bridge started working. I have learned that the sensors work better if they are close to the bridge, I think the directions say 300 feet but don't believe that.
If it had worked as well initially as it is now, I would have given it 5 stars. It is now aqbout 2 years old. (Posted on 1/29/13)
Totally satisfied so far Review by Thomas
Very quick delivery and had it up and running in no time. Had to download the manual for the 5-1 and the indoor display with no problem. Got the My Backyard on my wife and my computer and both our phones. Set up was a breeze for us. My bridge is about 50 ft. from unit and is by a large laser printer and couple other electronic devices but it works great. The phone app works great from all over so far. Haven't had any snow since I put it up, so will see if it effects the operation of it. (Posted on 1/16/13)
Excellent Weather Center Review by JCoop
I have a 5-in-1 mounted in my yard at about 6 feet above ground level. I also have a Davis VP2 but with its anemometer at 24 feet above ground level. I ran comparisons of the Acu-Rite with the Davis. The Acu-Rite anemometer is more sensitive than the Davis anemometer. The 5-in-1 detected as much wind at 6 feet as the Davis at 24 feet. My suggestion, mount the 5-in-1 in a convenient location where it can be serviced.
The wind threshold on the Acu-Rite is lower than the Davis. You don't need to mount it high because it is very sensitive. (Posted on 1/10/13)
Couldn't live without it Review by Matt
Received this product and setup was pretty simple. I had to mount the 5-in-1 on the eave of my house, with our pool there is no room for a pole to keep this isolated so had to just go for height. After that was done it was all just plug-in batteries and sign up online to get everything working. Following the instructions that come with the products, everything just works. I setup the app on my Android phone and then I set it up on my wife's without a hitch. We also bought an extra monitor that I hung in my office as well as placing one in our kitchen for everybody to marvel at. Our family does a lot of outdoor activities so being able to see the temp, wind speed, precipitation and barometer we know exactly how to prepare for our excursions out and around the house.
Living in AZ it doesn't get really cold here but I have the texting turned on for when it gets below 32 degrees, so I know to auto start my vehicle in the morning so the kids don't freeze on the way to school. This also works without a hitch, it doesn't tell you what the current temp is just that your indicator for temperature was reached. The same for the other alarms, it indicates a high or low for a particular alarm was reached but not what it is currently at. A simple application switch gives you the live temp, wind speed whatever but that was not what I had expected but a really minor flaw if you could even call it that
My only gripe is the weather prediction, always calls for rain. So like a stopped clock it is right when it is actually raining, otherwise it'll be sunny out with no clouds and the weather stations seems to think all signs still point to future thunder storms. But I did not buy this for my little ecosystem weather prediction, just to tell me what is going on at any given time and for that it works absolutely perfect.

Nice at a reasonable price Review by Jerry
I received my 01050C / 01055 yesterday. It was fairly easy to setup and the learning curve was low, but I am a technical kind of guy who reads instructions. :-) I have owned the 3-in-1 station for the last 9 months and it easily connected to the same bridge as the new 5-in-1 station. I have both sensors mounted in totally different areas of my yard, and it is interesting to watch the differences in wind speed, humidity etc.
It took me about 2.5 hours to complete setup including mounting the sensor, updating the bridge, setting up the bridge and setting up the dashboard.
Both my 3-in-1 and 5-in-1 sensor can be viewed locally and shared in the dashboard among friends.
The dashboard is easy to read and understand.
Has built in share with weather underground! (See cons)
Price is very nice for such a complex weather station.
Cons: Although you can share all sensors with friends, they have it limited to sharing only one sensor with Weather Underground. I setup two stations with Weather underground only to find the dashboard limits me to sharing only one sensor at a time. Big mopey face.
The dashboard can not be customized to place your gauges in a sane order. This is an issue with multiple sensors. If you only have one sensor it probably makes little difference.
The dashboard must be refreshed in order to see changes in gauge readings. If it is hard to make the gauges "live", it would be easy to create a view mode that auto refreshes every 15 or 30 seconds. 1 line of HTML code will fix this.
Overall, a very good value for the price. The cons I have seem to be easy fixes if acurite decides to fix them. I rated 4 stars, I would change this to 5 stars if my cons were addressed. (Posted on 12/2/12)
So far so good Review by Twin Oaks
I had an older 5 in 1 system that didn't connect to computer or internet. It was fine but did have few problems over a couple years. I wanted this system especially to keep up with conditions away from home. After getting the bridge to talk to my router it has been great. I've had it hooked up less than a week but love the set up so far. Great idea, great support and hope the support to this isn't interupted and the app stays up to date. I do like the 1015 monitor which works with this set up as well. Really like the historical data on the website and app. (Posted on 12/1/12)
Accurate Unit Review by modcookieparty
I also decided to purchase a quality unit and this hasn't disappointed so far. It also arrive in less than a week and wasn't too difficult to set up. It is transmitting well and the iphone app is very unique. The manual could definitely use some work but I'm fairly tech saavy and haven't had any issues so far - other than getting the time to update correctly.

Awesome!! Review by Weather Dude
Can't beat this product.. I've had it over a year and love it. Love the Android app (Iphone app also) ... Great item !! Keep up the great work.! (Posted on 11/25/12)
1050c Review by Derrick E
All I can say is "WoW". Acurite really did their homework on this model. The bridge is flawless with 4 out of 5 bars signal and the sensor is 80 feet away. Environment Canada weather station is only 2 miles away from me and the readings were virtually the same with just a small barometric pressure adjustment. Love this !!! (Posted on 10/22/12)
A lot for a little Review by Bborden
"5 in one weather station up on my roof - track from my PC or smart phone (Android in my case).
Brand new product - wasn't even on company website to register it when I received it (subsequently fixed).
There are some rough edges, but all of the data goes to the cloud & can be tracked. I've set alerts, but haven't had an occasion to receive any yet - for example, we've had no rain since I installed it.
Data seems pretty accurate from the other sensors I have around the house. Lots of things I want improved & I've posted some of them on their forum. Quick responses from Acu-Rite staff.
Took me about an hour to install on an old antenna pole attached to my chimney.
Overall very positive experience.

Great Weather Station for the price! Review by RetiredOma
Having had a much more expensive weather station for years, decided to purchase the AcuRite because of its web-based features. Delivery from Costco was within days! Had trouble setting up the bridge to communicate with our router but manufacturer's customer service was outstanding and replaced it when we determined the bridge was at fault. Setting up via internet a breeze and the data is comparable to our $500 weater station that is still set up but only available manually. (Posted on 6/26/12)
Great instrument after a shaky start Review by Worldtraveler83
This weather station turned out great and reliable after a shaky start. Basically, you must put the weather gauge near the bridge. In other words, I had it in the backyard, well within the 300foot requirement however, there were too many walls in between the bridge and the gauge. I found I had to reset the bridge constantly to get the link to work. After many calls to the helpful and friendly customer service, I moved the weather gauge to the side of the house within "clear" range of the bridge. It now works perfectly. I can view the weather in my yard through " My Backyard" app on my iPhone and iPad anywhere...traveling or not. Love it! (Posted on 2/5/12)
The Bridge Review by paulyr
I am a big weather buff and was very excited about this unit. When it works the APP and online function is great and fun and accurate to see what is going on at my house. However, it is disapointing that I have to constantly reset the bridge every week in order to get the weathr online or on my phone. They say there working on itm, but are they really!?

Quite pleased Review by DesertArray
Being a National Weather Service meteorologist, I am quite picky with my data, and thus far have been quite pleased with the Acurite system with its new internet bridge. (Posted on 12/7/11)
Love the App Review by Kevin
I love the iPhone app it is helpful in keeping track of things throughout the day. Keep up the great work. (Posted on 12/7/11)
Good Purchase Review by MargeH99
Pros: easy to set up, easy to read big numbers
So far, we really like this weather station. We've had several in the past and this one is by far the easiest to set up; much simpler to get it up and running than LaCross or Weather Channel unit. The numbers are big and easy to read from across the room. It would be nice if the history covered a longer period than 12 hours. Also, it would be nice if the unit could read from more than one sensor. You can set the channel to A, B or C, but not to A&B or A&B&C. (Posted on 11/1/11)
Bringing Acu-Link Weather Station to our Police Department Review by Chris
I am a Police Officer in CT. I am a former computer engineer, now turned Cyber Crime Investigator. Weather is a hobby. I just submitted a proposal to bring an Acu-Link Weather Station to our Police Department and Website that I built and manage for the town.
This will give our residents live data and weather alerts. This will
also assist our local schools during a weather emergency:

Excellent weather center Review by Weather Nut
I bought My Backyard Weather center on Costco's web site. Set it up in an hour including the iPhone app, and computer link. Works wonderfully. Even my friends can see all my weather stats with my permission on their devices. Best deal around. Their tech support is in WI and is free and friendly. (Posted on 9/17/11)
