Top 4 Alerts to Setup on Your My AcuRite Account

My AcuRite's smartphone app and browser-based interface lets you view your home's conditions from work, while you're on vacation, or from your favorite chair. You'll always know your environment in and around your living space, and be able to keep tabs on all the places that matter to you.

It's easy to get started! Simply connect your AcuRite Access® and sensors to your My AcuRite account. From there, you'll be able to setup custom alerts on your My AcuRite account and will receive an email or phone alert when environmental conditions change and need your attention. Here are the top four alerts we recommend setting up on your My AcuRite account:

1) High & Low Temperature Alerts

Air quality and comfort can be greatly affected by indoor temperature. Are your kids complaining about the cold play area in the basement? Are you worried that the baby's room is too warm? Place indoor temperature sensors in those worrisome areas, and then create custom alerts for Temperature in your My AcuRite account so that you get an early warning when conditions exceed your ideal range. Infants are more sensitive to temperature fluctuations, so it's recommended that you keep a nursery between 68°F and 72°F to help reduce the risk of SIDS.

2) High & Low Humidity Alerts

Are the teenagers not using the bathroom fan again? It's recommended that you keep the bathroom humidity level below 80% to reduce the risk of mold and mildew buildup on walls and flooring. You can monitor indoor humidity in the same way that we recommend above for temperature. Place indoor humidity sensors in your bathroom areas, and then create custom alerts for Humidity in your My AcuRite account. You'll get alerted as soon as conditions exceed your ideal range.

3) Rainfall Alert

Keep things growing in the right direction! Once you install a Wireless Rain Gauge Detector and setup a Rainfall alert on your My AcuRite account, you'll become more aware of conditions that could lead to flooding, know when it's time to plant, and how much to water the garden. We know you'll give this alert two green thumb's up as you enjoy tasty veggies, a lush lawn, and sweet-smelling flowers.

4) Water Alert

Worried about water damage due to an overflowing appliance, sump pump failure, or a leaking roof? Sometimes incidents like those are unavoidable, but you can know when to take action sooner by installing a Water Leak Detector and creating a Water alert in your My AcuRite account. If water is detected, you'll get instant notification. Preventing water damage often means the difference between an easy fix, and a gut rehab.

An alert that you needs to be developed is a pressure alarm. Not many know but people with autism are very touchy when it comes to pressure changes. We know for our son 29.96 is a bad area but above 30 is good. Below 29.6 he get really squirrely. He get's aggressive right at 2 hours before rain comes. Having a pressure alarm (with multiple alarms) would help people.

I use a low temp alert to send text and email if the air by our water meter drops below 35 F. It's in a utility room at the back of the garage, since we don't have a basement. This past winter we had -10 overnight lows, and I was glad to have this protection.

In the winter months I'm often gone for a week out of town I set a low temp alert in my home for a certain thresh hold, if it drops below that temp I know my furnace stopped working and I need to call the neighbor and have him check on things.
