I live in Juneau, Alaska, a rain forest. My accurite 5-in1 has not recorded one raindrop. I've calibrated it, leveled it, reset the monitor and nothing. Water runs through the machine but nothing is recorded. I got this product because it records both wind (up to 110 mph in the winter) and rainfall. I need help fixing this so that it records rainfall.
This weather station is very nice. Large bright display that has an auto dim feature. Decent rain history. Take a little getting used to where all the data metric are. But once you figure it out, you will be very pleased.
I have had problems with display working with the outdoor station. I had to leave a message with tech support, I was 14 in line to be served. We might have it working now but time will tell. To get it to talk with the computer put it to mode 3 not mode 2 from the factory. When it is working it is nice to see the data everyday. There needs to be a night dimming switch for the unit for it will stay very bright at night with no lights on in my home.
Very easy to setup. Stays rock solid wirelessly compared to your competition. Everthing is working well.
Shipping was rather slow, but everything arrived, packed very well. Setup up was very easy, as I already had my outdoor mount ready, thanks to the info provided by your website. Everything worked great. The lightning detector is truly amazing, even setup up in the INDOOR mode, it is very sensitive and accurate. If I was to complain, I am not that pleased with the color display weather station(06037), somewhat hard to read under certain conditions and viewing range is limited. Looking at adding a smarthub, as I am not a fan of having a PC on at all times, but would like to use the Phone/Tablet app. Thanks for a great Product.
A place to put it, a ladder, a drill, and a fence-level were all I needed to set the station up. By the time I got back inside the display was already pulling data. I added a share for the CSV files to go to and boom! I have data I can play with. It hooked right up to WUnderground and has faithfully transmitted updates since. Judging against other weather instruments in the house, it so far looks very accurate.
Make sure to use the bubble level in the top of the station to make sure it's absolutely level. The fence-level will get you so far. For final adjustments you might need some makeshift shims, like an old shopping member-card or such like.
So far, completely trouble-free installation and operation.
I recieved this kit approximately 3 weeks ago. Setup was extremely easy with the wireless connection working perfectly. I did the setup with both base and remote in the same room, then installing the remote outside. The hardest part is finding the best place for the remote. I finally installed it off the corner of the roof using a 4' piece of 3/4" plastic pipe (which is to flexible by itself) with a metal antenna support making it absolutely solid. We'll see how it lasts and maybe replace it with regular pipe later on. Readings appear to be accurate. I wish I could have a rain measurement setting that would allow measurement for overnight rainfall instead of restarting measurement at midnight.
I received this weather station as a gift. The product is great and was easy to install and get connected to the monitoring station. No issues with that part and I really like the display and information shown/tracked.
The PC Connect feature is a hassle to set up, very cumbersome and is not a user friendly/streamlined process.
With that said, IMO, this PC Connect feature should not be pushed by Acurite and their marketing department until it is user friendly and a streamlined process. Now I have to call Acurite and spend my time on the phone with them to fix a problem that I shouldn't have had in the first place.
The weather station gets five stars and the PC Connect and it's features gets zero stars. Hopefully they get this fixed in the future.
I have had it set up for 2 weeks now and so far seems to send fairly accurate information. This is judging by other weather stations I have and local stations in my area. It was a very easy setup and install. I love the weather ticker as it tells me all the different highs and lows for the day and records. It has at least twice predicted the possibility of precipitation and it was correct.
Pro 5-in-1 Color Weather Station with PRO+ 5-in-1 Sensor, PC Connect & BONUS Lightning Detector
easy to set up, easy to read the station. love the ticker scroll on the bottom.
have only had a couple weeks but so far so good. Really like the wind chill and feels like options.
Only a couple issues.
1) the picture is misleading. It is a Pro model with 2 solar panels but the picture does not show that it is In my ignorance I ordered the upgrade because I wanted the 2 solar panels not knowing Pro indicated it already did, even though the pic showed it did not.
2) when I called customer service to ask the above question, I gave up after being on hold for over an hour, called the next day and gave up after 45 min.
Very nice although confusing when ordering because of so many similar models to choose from. Hard to tell what the differences are apart from the hardware that comes with it in the bundle.
I like the new display, it is well organized and the weather ticker is easier to read than the older model 01515DIA1.
Gives me everything I need for weather.
The older model 01515DIA1 did have the high and low temperature of the day on the display, which this doesn't. But I was lucky, the model 01515DIA1 can communicate with the new PRO + 5-in-1 Sensor so now I can have a weather display upstairs and downstairs and still get the high and low temperature of the day.
This is one great weather station, especially for the price. I tried the lighting Detector a few days ago and for the most part it was on the money. Sometimes it'll ask you to relocate it for a strike reading. Could not be any more pleased with a product!
I am very happy with this weather station (except for the Lightning Detector -- see separate review). It was easy to install and set up, and has all the features I wanted. While the "color" display isn't really color, it still looks good and is easy to read. I previously had an Oregon Scientific weather station, which finally stopped working after many years, but I like this one much better. I definitely recommend this product.
My first sensor went bad and I figured it was time for an upgrade. This was a great choice. From box to working was less than 20 minuted. Out of the box, batteries and swap out the sensor a d back in business. Not only did my new display work, but so did my old display. It is something that is very important to see the temps and heat index here in South Florida. The lightning indicator is very important as well. If you want to stay on top of the weather, this is a great home system
I had an older model of the 5-1 with the black and white display. The display and ticker are really, really nice. Sensor now has 2 solar panels. If this one lasts like the other
it will be a winner.
Just finished the two week learning mode and it's looking very good. Temp and humidity are good but sometimes very a lot from readings at the Weather Network. Far better temp reading in the sun than previous system, cooling fan obviously helps. Will decide if calibration is needed after a month more learning. Looking at other stations in the city on Weather Underground, we are all in line with readings. Added in the wireless bridge so not having to be tied to a computer to transmit. Works great. All in all far better than my previous system from Oregon.
The station was easy to set up and use. I recommend it to anyone.
Looses connection to the app easily, have to close the program and re-open for it to reconnect. The wind gauge seems to seem lower than what is reported by weather reports, but it is a neat idea to give us an idea of what's going on when we are out of town or at work.
Got this for my husband for Father's Day- he could not be happier and is like a little kid with a new toy; mounted it on a sturdy pole at about 5 ft. above ground, works great; the lightening detector was an added bonus for those of us that live along the Front Range of Colorado- its so active it resets after 100 strikes detected.. overall very pleased
It is easy to set up, specially if you first square out the tubing you are installing it in. The display is nice and I like the auto dimming feature. The scroll is too long and with repetitive information. I wish I had more to say but we have had a lack of weather.
This could be an awesome product if they had Apple software for transferring the data to clear out the display. But since they only run Windows I have to borrow my son's laptop and that'll get to be a pain. Doesn't make sense that they offer an iPhone app but nothing else for Apple since millions of people use Apple computers. They need to get with the program.
Everything you need to keep track of Rain Fall Totals - Wind - Humidity - Indoor Outdoor Temps Keeps Event Totals - Monthly Totals & Yearly! The ticker is great to keep up on all past events & totals.
