AcuRite gives back to the community and other organizations by providing school weather stations to students, emergency weather stations to volunteer firefighters and the American Red Cross, and contributing to other projects for the environment.
We refurbish weather stations for schools!
When AcuRite weather station parts and components are returned and replaced, we replace the units with brand new parts. Instead of tossing our returned parts into landfills, we’ve started a new program to repair and refurbish the AcuRite Atlas™ weather station sensors and parts to fully functioning near-new equipment. We receive hundreds of requests annually from schools, museums, camps, zoos, and other educational facilities for weather station donations to help build weather curriculum that compliments their existing weather and climate lesson plans. By donating these refurbished weather stations, plus a Wi-Fi displays for remote monitoring, the students have access to weather data measured right at their school from both the local display in their classrooms as well as the My AcuRite website and mobile app. Teachers are using their local weather data to teach their students how to track weather extremes and weather trends, while other groups rely on their hyper-local weather data for their agricultural program and outdoor classrooms.
We give to emergency responders!
From volunteer firefighters to local American Red Cross chapters, we get dozens of requests monthly to support local emergency responders across the nation. Understanding the importance of hyper-local weather data is essential in maintaining a safe community from potential weather hazards. These command centers can connect their AcuRite weather station to My AcuRite via a Wi-Fi display, allowing them to share their real-time weather data throughout their community with the My AcuRite website and mobile app.
We help keep animals safe!
From animal rehabilitation facilities to environmental centers and zoos, AcuRite contributes to environmental efforts by donating sensors for non-profit organizations for monitoring terrariums, animal enclosures, and even refrigerators for proper food storage for the animals. Whether indoors or outdoors, animal enclosures can quickly become dangerous and unsafe. Facilities need to monitor these conditions in real-time to make decisions that, in some cases, ensure the survival of a threatened species. AcuRite sensors and the My AcuRite mobile app are critical for centers such as the Turtle Survival Alliance and the Santa Barbara Zoo, which allow facility managers to keep an eye on the property even when they are away.
