According to the latest research, modern dads see parenting as central to their identity: 57% of fathers surveyed said so, which was awfully close to the 58% of mothers who did. This sort of study shows that dads, much like moms, treasure their role as parent.
Clearly being a dad matters to Dad. With this in mind, how should we go about showing appreciation this Father’s Day? If, for example, he coaches teams, he may benefit from knowing when it’s going to rain. Perhaps he’d like to know what’s going on at home, even when he’s in the office.
If dad is a weather enthusiast, likes lots of data, or is involved in the outdoors, we have a few ideas.
This is the future of hyper-local weather monitoring: smart, connected, and 100% dad-friendly. This rugged piece of gear is the most accurate weather sensor ever created by our team, with detailed measurements of temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, UV index, and light intensity.
Dad will like the wireless range of 330 feet (100 meters) and the incredibly easy set-up. And we predict he’s really going to like the way he can view the data in an app, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
This is the all-in-one package for the guy who taught you how to ride a bike. A tested and true design, the 5-in-1 sets the industry standard for reliable, affordable local weather measurements, with persistent measurement of five environmental elements: temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and rainfall.
Now the weather station is neat, but when you pair it with AcuRite Access, you get into a whole new world of dad-gadget cool. The base station connects to dad’s router, and communicates with the My AcuRite software, which he can view on a phone, tablet, or desktop browser. It lets dad view his home conditions from work, on vacation, or from his favorite chair. This technology helps dad keep tabs on all places that matter to him.
AcuRite Access integrates seamlessly with dad’s Alexa voice commands, allowing him to get his information just by asking out loud. And if he has a Google Home device, no worries: full support is coming later in June.
Every AcuRite Access can monitor up to seven sensors, so if dad already has a weather sensor and AcuRite Access, you can give him compatible hardware to monitor more of his home environment. A temperature/humidity sensor might tell him how things are going in garage or attic, and a leak detector may give him peace of mind about the basement. You can even get him a single sensor that detects both the room environment and leaks!
Happy Father’s Day!
