Frequently Asked Questions



By comparing your indoor and outdoor temperature data often, you'll know when to open windows rather than run the air conditioning or furnace. If this becomes a common occurrence, you'll end up using your utilities less often, resulting in lower energy bills and a more energy-efficient home.

Optimal indoor temperature can be different for everyone, and it can take some time to find what is most comfortable for you and your preferred sleeping temperature. But once you know your ideal home temperature thresholds, which you can learn from AcuRite temperature sensors, you can set alerts and receive notifications right to your smartphone when the indoor temperatures exceed your optimal comfort.

If you are continuously aware of outdoor temperature and humidity levels, you can make informed decisions about how much or how cold you need to run your air conditioning. Running your air conditioning less can help you have a more energy-efficient home and lessen the chance of any technical issues surrounding your air conditioning system.

Yes, with AcuRite smart home technology, you can place indoor temperature and humidity sensors in different areas of your home and create alerts based on ideal conditions for each room. Say the nursery requires increased humidity for ideal sleep conditions for the baby, or storage in the attic requires lower humidity to maintain ideal conditions for old photos. Set alerts and get notifications right to your smartphone if any of these sensors detect conditions outside of your preset temperature and humidity (two of the most common notifications) thresholds.

To protect your loved ones and valuables, strategically place sensors where your family spends the most time and in storage areas. Baby sleeping in the nursery? Kids playing video games in the basement? Husband working in the garage? Dog kennel out back? These are just a few ideas. You can also use our sensors to monitor the temperature of fine art, wine, and cigars.

High home humidity can create dangerous living conditions. Not only can it allow for mildew and mold growth, but it can also decrease the air quality in your home and increase allergy symptoms. Know how to maintain humidity levels to keep mold and allergies away!

Usually, the ideal indoor humidity level for optimal comfort and health is between 30% and 50%, but it also can depend on your personal preference. Maintaining ideal home humidity can be challenging as it is greatly affected by your local climate and region. Make sure to find the right number for you to retain moisture and prevent dryness!

AcuRite has a new indoor air quality sensor that measures the concentration of small air particles present in your home, known as PM2.5. With an easy-to-read scale that highlights safe or hazardous conditions, you'll know when to ventilate the house, replace the filters, or change the indoor humidity.
