ACULINK: The Perfect Weather Station
for Monitoring Conditions Remotely
Lake Geneva, WIS – November 16, 2012 – AcuRite, a leader in personal weather reporting instruments, today announced the release of its AcuLink platform for remote monitoring of environmental conditions. Redefining how consumers stay connected with the places and things they care about, AcuLink enables users to observe indoor and outdoor elements including temperature, humidity, wind, rainfall, water temperature, atmospheric pressure, the weather forecast and more. The AcuLink platform records data using precision sensors positioned in your local environment, and then transmits your sensor’s data over the internet, where it can be viewed from a PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet and tabletop display.
AcuLink data can be monitored privately, shared with family and neighbors, or be reported to online weather communities. The AcuLink online portal and app feature a customizable dashboard and intuitive user interface, designed for easy trend observation, graphic charting, and historical data storage. Get notified of changing conditions by email or text message using AcuLink’s programmable alerts, which can be triggered by events like excessive rainfall, oncoming storms, frost warning, high wind speed and more. AcuLink is accessible at Acu-Link.com, and can be downloaded as a free app for Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.
How it works
The AcuLink platform sets up easily and in minutes.
• AcuLink compatible sensors can be positioned outdoors or indoors in the location(s) you’d like to monitor conditions.
• Once positioned, the sensor(s) wirelessly transmit data to the AcuLink Internet Bridge.
• The AcuLink Internet Bridge plugs into your Internet router and reports your sensor data to “the cloud”, or AcuLink servers.
• Access AcuLink from a mobile device by downloading the free app from the iPhone App Store or Google Play store.
• AcuLink can be accessed on a PC, laptop or tablet with a web browser by visiting http://www.aculink.com.
The AcuLink internet bridge can receive data for up to 3 AcuRite sensors simultaneously. A variety of AcuLink compatible sensors are available, all featuring a 330 ft. wireless range, durable weather-resistant construction and strong signal penetration for transmission through walls and long distances. AcuRite’s proprietary 5-in-1 sensor incorporates 5 features into one sensor, including temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction.
