Avoid Lightning Danger

Hike up that granite rock peak or get to lower ground? Be prepared for potential thunderstorm activity with lightning strikes detected up to 25 miles away.

Portable Weather Sensors

Throw these handy gadgets in your daypack to safely explore the great outdoors while out on your adventures. Lightning detection with a radius of 25 miles helps you identify the safest route for your hike, and shifting wind data could signal storm development. If your activities are on the water, advanced lightning detection can inform you to hurry back to shore. Weather alerts in real time are an essential part of exploring the great outdoors.

Even your campsite comfort is optimized with sensors placed inside or outside the RV or camper. Compare indoor and outdoor temperatures to know when to open the windows or run the AC.

Before You Go Outside

Let's admit it — many of our cabins and remote getaways now have high-speed internet. Whether your sanctuary has Wi-Fi or not, you can build custom weather monitoring into your setup to stay on top of conditions. Heavy rainfall could make the trail turn to mud, stable atmospheric pressure could make the fish less likely to bite, and low winds could make for challenging sailing.

With AcuRite weather monitoring and live weather alerts, you'll always know when to head out for your next adventure or when to reschedule, based on weather conditions measured right at your base camp.

If you have them stuffed away in your pack, then you'll always know the conditions of the bottom of your backpack. Learn more about what weather patterns to watch for when you're on the trail.

Stationary weather stations from AcuRite are very easy to set up and install. Generally, you need to think about setting the weather station away from any obstacles or obstructions that would affect the wind measurements or rainfall data. The obvious examples are: don't set the rain gauge under a tree and don't install the anemometer right next to a building, fence, or wall. You have to consider temperature too, a weather station mounted over a blacktop will measure warmer temperatures than if it was placed over grass or natural surface. So wide-open spaces over natural surfaces are ideal locations for weather stations, however, we understand that ideal placement is not always an option, so just identify the best location you can! See the article here for specific guidelines on weather station installation.

No, you cannot access your AcuRite weather data from your personal weather station if you do not have cell reception. The data is available through the My AcuRite app or website, so you'll either need a cell or internet connection. This is why it is ideal to bring portable, handheld weather sensors with you on your outdoor adventures, because you simply hold up the weather sensor and read the current conditions on the display! It's that easy!

AcuRite monitors a wide range of weather elements. Within the AcuRite Olympus Series™, three tiers of weather stations measure rainfall, wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity, UV and light intensity, and lightning detection. Our portable, handheld weather sensors can measure wind speed, temperature, humidity, and lightning up to 25 miles away to keep you covered for your next adventure! 

With your AcuRite portable, handheld weather sensors, you can set weather alerts for lightning detection and high wind. 

The portable lightning sensor from AcuRite is the best way to detect lightning strikes before you're in danger, wherever your adventures take you. The portable sensor detects lightning strikes up to 25 miles away, both cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground, so you're aware of potential danger before you can even hear it! Take action and stay safe!
