New Rainfall Sensor with Rain App Measures and Tracks the Rainfall in your Lawn or Garden
AcuRite Expands the Monitoring Capabilities of its AcuLink Platform with New Rain Monitoring Systems.
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin – February, 2015 – AcuRite, the leader in time, temperature and weather instruments, has announced the launch of its line of Rain Monitoring Systems that build off the capabilities of AcuRite’s AcuLink remote monitoring platform. 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, atmospheric pressure, the weather forecast and more. Each Rain Monitoring System includes a rain gauge sensor that wirelessly transmits rainfall measurements to the system’s AcuLink Internet Bridge, where the data can be viewed from a PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet or tabletop display.
Your rain sensor 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. Personal precipitation information is useful for making decisions about the amount of watering your lawn or garden requires. Get notified of changing conditions by email or text message using AcuLink’s programmable alerts, which can be triggered by events like flood conditions and oncoming storms. AcuLink is accessible at AcuLink.com, and can be downloaded as a free app for Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.
