Wind Speed and Direction

Measures wind speeds up to 99 mph (159 kph) and updates every 18 seconds to fully capture wind gusts and maximum wind speeds. Direction is reported in cardinal direction and updated every 30 seconds.

rain icon

Accurate Rainfall Totals

The self-emptying rain gauge measures at 0.01 in (0.25 mm) intervals and updates every 30 seconds to give you real-time data on rainfall rate, daily accumulation, and storm totals.

pressure icon

Rising or Falling Pressure

Measures barometric pressure to indicate an approaching or vacating storm (measured in the display or the AcuRite Access).

lightning icon

Temperature and Humidity

Captures temperatures from -40 to 158 °F (-40 to 70 °C). Two solar panels power an internal aspirating fan to disperse radiant heat, which allows for 2 °F (1.11 °C) temperature accuracy and 4% humidity accuracy.

Ultraviolet and Light Intensity Measuring

Sunburns

Minimize your family's exposure to harmful solar rays with real-time updates of current UV conditions.

It's For Your Health

In addition to sunburn, be aware of other health risks, such as eye damage and skin cancer associated with high levels of UV exposure.

Plants, Garden, and Lawn

Grow healthier plants with clear insight of the sun's impact; easily track seasonal trends and measure hours of daylight.

Always be in the know. Get alerts to your phone or email when UV intensity is above a specific threshold.

Water Leak Surveillance

Flooded Basement or Backyard

Heavy downpours can saturate the lawn and soil, which can force the water into your basement or crawlspace.

Leaky Appliance
or Sink

Avoid costly water damage by enabling alerts for sensors placed in areas that are typically prone to leaks, such as the water heater, sump pump, or kitchen sink.

Damaged Valuables in Storage

Get notified at the first detection of water in your attic or crawlspace to protect your stored possessions.

Always be in the know. Get alerts when water is detected in problem areas.

Indoor Home Temperature and Humidity Tracking

Optimize Home
Heating and Cooling

Identify leaky windows or doors, and know when it's best to open the windows or run the AC.

Maintain Healthy
Living Conditions

Mildew growth is higher under humid environments. Have loved ones with respiratory issues? Protect them by knowing when to run the humidifier or dehumidifier.

Keep Valuables
Safe

Photos, instruments, and wood furniture; most items in storage have a narrow threshold for optimal temperature and humidity.

Always be in the know. Get alerts when living conditions become unsafe.

Water, Soil, and Spot-Check Temperature Monitoring

Pools, Hot Tubs, Ponds

Whether it's kids in the pool, parents in the hot tub, or koi in the decorative pond, easily track water temperatures to keep everyone comfortable.

Four-Legged Friends

Also nurture the other animals in your home, whether they're in an aquarium, terrarium, or cage.

Gardens and Plants

Track the spring thaw, cover the plants during a hard freeze, or give them an extra drink in high heat with real-time soil temperature updates.

Always be in the know. Get alerts when water temperatures become unsafe or soil conditions become unstable.

Wind Monitoring

Storm Potential

Monitor and track increasing wind speeds, changing or shifting wind directions, and gusting winds to have a heads-up on an approaching storm.

Property Damage

Know when to batten down the hatches. From weak windows to old shingles or siding, be prepared before wind wreaks havoc on your home.

Gardens and Plants

After overwatering, wind damage is the next biggest threat to your large crops, bushes, and trees.

Always be in the know. Get alerts when wind gusts exceed your defined threshold.

Rainfall Tracking

Storm Totals

From rainfall rate to rainfall totals, know exactly how much water your lawn, garden, or yard has received.

Flooded Basement
or Backyard

Heavy downpours can saturate the lawn and soil, which can force water into your basement. Stay on top of rainfall totals to prevent or prepare for a potential flood.

Lawn, Gardens,
and Plants

Overwatering is the largest threat to plants. Monitor and track rainfall totals to adjust watering needs as necessary.

Always be in the know. Get alerts when rainfall totals exceed your designated high-water mark.

Frequently Asked Questions



If your AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) display is no longer updating or displaying data correctly, it’s always good troubleshooting to start with a fresh set of batteries in your AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) outdoor device. If that doesn’t fix the problem, please see additional steps for AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) display reset or HD display reset.

Always try to follow the weather station installation guidelines for accurate weather data. For example, placing your weather station over a black surface or near a heat vent will likely result in temperature measurements that are warmer than the actual observed temperature. Check out this page for more information on accurate temperature and humidity measurements, such as temperatures reporting too hot.

Always try to follow the weather station installation guidelines for accurate weather data. Wind data may not be entirely accurate if your weather station is located next to any obstacles that may block the wind speed or direction from any direction. Wide open spaces are most ideal for accurate wind readings. Learn more about inaccurate wind speed or direction data from your AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) here.

Always try to follow the weather station installation guidelines for accurate weather data. Rainfall data may not be entirely accurate if your weather station is located under a tree or awning, for example. We have additional tools and tips if your Iris is not reporting any rainfall data, or if your rain data looks incorrect, you may need to calibrate your rain sensor.

You should have received the Quick Start guide to help you set up your display. If you’ve lost it or need additional setup tips, see the support page for our Wi-Fi displays. If you’ve gone through these steps and still need help, you can look through AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) Wi-Fi Display calibration information.

If your lightning sensor is blinking yellow, or if you believe your sensor is picking up erroneous lightning data, then your sensor might be experiencing interference. Try to relocate your sensor at least 3 feet away from any electronics or fluorescent light figures. See this full list of interference sources.

If you are interested in replacing your temperature and humidity board on your AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) outdoor device, you need to ensure you have the correct unit. Please visually inspect the unit for the correct logo, battery compartment, and compatible model numbers listed here.

You can find all common troubleshooting information on our AcuRite Iris (5-in-1) support page. We also encourage you to peruse the AcuRite support site for other related questions you may have.
