This unit has everything I could ask for - I am not a full time watcher but the convenience of being able to check the days high/low/current temps/wind/humidity... is great!
Super easy to set up so I keep a log of all my data, and I can access it from any browser or phone I have. Super convenient anywhere I am.
I am 60, and the 6006 display is really bright with a contrast I find hard to read from a distance. It also lights up my entire living room at night and makes for a distraction when watching TV. The dim button turns all the light off so you can only read if right next to you (only 2 options).
I opted to buy the 06022 dark display to try instead. Will review it when I get it - supposed to have auto dimming, settable % brightness, so I should like that.
I have had this unit for a month now and have been very pleased with it? The unit was easy to set up and the associated monitors (basement temp and humidity) connected easily. I was originally sent the wrong sensor but AcuRite sent me (no extra charge) the correct unit quickly! I was able to view the local weather and conditions (locally was Michigan) while on a cruise ship in Alaska... very fun. I whole heartedly recommend the unit.
Very easy to set up and seems like it is quite accurate. Had a little trouble getting the smart hub to work but a quick call to customer service took care of that. The transmit distance through the house and garage seems to be limited to about 75 ft but there are several walls in the way. The online reporting is fun I can easily check it from my tablet or cell phone. I have not set up the PC Connect as of yet.
I just got this unit this week and am extremely disappointed. The 5-N-1 sensor installed easily and connected great to the display unit. I also bought the outside sensor with the soil test probe to use in my garden. The problem is the PC Connect feature and the Smarthub, neither of which function reliably. The weather station sensor is 150 ft away from the color display and shows "4 bars" on the signal strength. The smarthub will not pick up any sensor that is more than 25-30 feet away despite line of sight and NO obstructions. I have repositioned the smarthub multiple places, utilized lithium batteries, tried different channels, nothing is working. The PC connect doesn't download despite it saying that is has "detected the display". The only reason I even gave it 2 stars is because the weather station sensor DOES work with the tabletop display. I should have known that at 1/3 the cost of better units( you know which company I'm talking about), this thing is little more than an expensive toy!
I bought the AcuRite 5 in 1 Bundle about 3 weeks ago. I bought it for our house in the mountains that we use as a getaway home. Because of the weather in the mountains, cold and snow, i needed a way to remotely monitor the conditions. This thing is great. Easy to make all the online connections. The only thing i am trying to figure out is the fact that my display shows one Pressure reading and my AcuRite website shows another. Still trying to figure out which one is correct.
I would for sure recommend this product!
This is our second system. We have one in our vacation home and enjoy checking in on the weather when we are away. The system is easy to set up and fun to use. Connection to the internet is fast. Customer service is excellent. Highly recommended.
I was looking for a quality built and highly recommended weather station for Father's Day. This unit hit all the checks!
The unit has the "Dual Solar" option, which makes the temperature readings very accurate. I cannot speak for the single solar unit - but between many reviews, they seem to become off during sunset / sunrise... I do wish the solar panels charged the internal batteries...but they do not. You'll need to change them out at about 2 years, per the manual (I splurged on Lithium Batteries due to very cold temperatures in NY -- it hasn't been through a winter yet, but I expect this unit to do well). This particular unit also comes with the network connector and the color screen.
The only thing I do not like with this particular unit, is that the color display's "ticker" feature is not that clear at certain angles and would be much better if it was LED or had adjustable contrast. In addition, certain features like Atomic Time and more customizable display is not available.
I was able to get the unit for around $120 between a sale and coupon - which was really an amazing price. I would highly recommend this unit -- even at the $190 msrp and you will be very happy with the purchase!
Recently purchased the 900WES 5N1 Pro+ Weather Station - absolutely one dandy system. Love all this things does and now I don't have to wait for the rain to stop to see how much received, it's right there on the screen (:-)! If you buy the additional sensor to put in the attic or somewhere else, realize the only way to view those numbers is by logging into your computer and accessing the bridge. Now are for the Acu-Link app for your phone, works great and gives you all the main data from the base unit.
My only (minor) issue is: if you are setting down and the main unit is in its (tilted) base, you can't see the numbers, you have to stand up or get closer. They were much more vivid and bold on the previous unit that I had.
Otherwise, for home use, absolutely superb!
This weather station is AWSOME. Gives me accurate, up to the minute weather info on our property that we aren't always at. We can remotely check on the weather at any time and was very easy to set up. I am adding a webcam into the mix for the total weather and data experience. Bonus was that our older stations indoor monitor co-existed with this system so we have 2 indoor monitors in 2 different areas of the property.
Awesome Great Grand product ! I recived this Weather Station as a gift and I had it set up and running the same day. I've compared the rain gauge to my regular rain and they are both pretty spot on with each other. I'm very satisfied with this model & would recommend it to any weather enthusiast. The mobile app is also great for keeping a eye on thing when you not around & with the new release of the new app platform I'm even more excited about using my weather station.
It's not perfect, but overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
It's been installed four months now.
I don't yet know the battery life for the 5-1.
I'm hoping it's a while as I don't look forward to going back on the roof to stand on my head at the edge and change them.
I used Energizer Lithium AA even though I'm not in a low temperature place. They are (much) more expensive, but do contain significantly more energy than any alkaline AA.
As a weather station it works well.
As a weather forecaster, it's absolutely worthless (it always says 99% chance of rain here in sunny San Diego).
- 01036 Display (I have the Internet bridge, so do not use PC Connect feature).
- Internet Bridge
- Extra temperature/humidity sensor for indoor temperature monitoring (see note)
Note: The 5-1 and other sensors talk to the display and/or bridge. The display does NOT talk to the bridge.
The display has a barometric sensor and indoor temperature/humidity sensor.
The bridge has a barometric sensor to report pressure. It does NOT have a built temperature/humidity sensor. You will need to buy an additional (~$20) sensor if you want to remotely monitor the temperature inside your house.
I spent a few days thinking about where/how to mount the 5-1. I wanted unobstructed wind, of course, but also neede to be able to "easily" access the unit to change batteries. Before going to the roof, I set all the switches, installed batteries and powered everything up in my living room to make sure it all worked. Didn't want to come down from the roof, put the ladder away only to find things didn't work!
- Setup and installation was straightforward. After a few days of pre-planning, it only took an hour or two to mount the extension pole on the roof and attach the 5-1. (The directions should mention that 3/4" PVC is what fits in the hole in the bottom of the unit). And that's really all there is to it, other than plugging setting a few switches and plugging things in.
- Quality seems good (Though the very light weight of the 5-1 is a bit off putting - Feels cheap).
- Syncing with the bridge was straightforward.
- Setting up Account and My Backyard Weather apps was easy (a few bugs in iOS app).
- Was able to set up Weather Underground station.
- Community support forum is very helpful. Employees monitor and chime in so you get pretty much instant or next (business) day help.
- The alarm features are neat, but have quirks that make some useless (see wind alert con below). The display will beep (see con below) or you can send yourself a text.
- The ticker-tape on the display, eh. Not a con, but I'd almost rather scroll through a menu of information when I want it rather than wait for it to come by. What's the max wind this month? Wait, wait... is it coming...?
- There are two small solar panels that operate a fan that helps to prevent sunlight on the 5-1 from affecting the outdoor temperature reading (see con, below).
- Barometric auto-calibrate not having an over-ride ability is the biggest fault. I waited 30 days for it to calibrate "close, but wrong", when I could have simply set it and forget it. They have a patent on the auto calibrate. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should...
- Forecast always-always says its 99% going to rain (in San Diego lol).
- Some weird quirks are not explained. For instance, most things (high/low temp) reset per day. Rain resets "per event", with the unit deciding when the rain is over. I've had days where it rained three times, but it reset in between, so I couldn't figure a total for the day.
- Display has no contrast setting, so viewing angle is limited (can't read it well from "below").
- Display has some annoying quirks (can't take it completely out of setting mode. It sits there saying, "Set Units?")
- Display backlight should detect ambient lighting and dim accordingly
- Phone support access is non-existent. There is a community-forum for help, which employees monitor and chime in on, so you pretty much get instant or next (business) day help.
- Some of the bridge alarms need to be thought through better and improved. For instance if you set a high wind alarm for 30MPH, every time it gusts over 30, you get a text, maybe a hundred a day. Makes it worthless. (Why couldn't it limit itself to once per hour or once per day, or let me select between the two?)
- The display alarms beep until you acknowledge them. I wish they would quit after some (user selectable?) time. I had to turn ALL of mine off after coming home and having my wife say, "that **** thing has been beeping ALL day and is driving me CRAZY!", when the humidity dropped below 15%...
- I live where there is no snow (but grew up where there was plenty). I think that snow would pretty much gum up the works for the entire winter. Obviously it's not going to go through the rain guage (and measure snow). It'll most likely jam the anemometer (wind speed cups). Maybe the direction vane would keep working. So you'd know the outside temperature/humidity and wind direction. Better than nothing. Just keep your expectations reasonable.
- There are two small solar panels that operate a fan that helps to prevent sunlight on the 5-1 from affecting the outdoor temperature reading (see con, below). Seems to work for me, but many users report that their outdoor air temperature is still greatly affected by sunlight heating the unit. I'm worried that the fans will eventually wear out,
- The batteries are in a hard to access arrangement in the bottom of the unit. It looked like it would be very difficult to change them while balancing on my toes on the edge of my roof, looking up into the receptacle... I actually came up with a two piece pole arrangement connected by a hitch-pin. That way I was able to install the 5-1 higher than I could "reach" on the roof. When I need to change batteries, I can separate the poles and take down the 5-1, safely change the batteries and put it back up. I still need to go on the roof.
- Why don't the solar panels power/recharge the unit? Have a switch for batteries (for cloudy places), or rechargeables for me in San Diego. I don't think it would add significantly to the cost and I'd really, really like the idea of not having to go up on my roof once(?) a year to change batteries. Alternatively, maybe a plug in remote battery pack (at the bottom of the pole)? Need to consider lightning risks... But a weather proof battery box mounted to my wall would be real nice.
Opened the box on Saturday and installed the outside unit, easy enough. Turned on the inside monitor and connected to the outside unit - good to go. Now for the reason for the bad review - installed the acu-link per the instructions and got to the flashing blue lights so far so good, tried to connect on two droid cell phones, a droid tab and a pc - no luck... tried calling support, not availble on the weekend - no chat support, no email support, no voice mail, no twitter, no facebook - nothing. I work during the week so calling between their hours is not an option so what now? Do not purchase if you have a job and need help.
Having had and used Davis and LaCrosse unit I am pleased with this item. The system set up quickly and easily although I had minor problems registering the unit and getting it on line at Acurite. The customer service, when I called, was exemplary and the reps got me up and running quickly with very little phone wait time. The unit is quite accurate and had the added benefit of picking up data from an older Acurite 3 in 1 that I have had running for about 3 years. The future weather preduction is fairly accurate and I would say it rivals the forecasts of every meteorological forecast in area. My data is streaming on Weather Underground, and set up there was simple. The key word I have used often is "simple" which I cannot stress enough, especially having used the previously mentioned units which were anything but in setup and use. In closing, I highly recommend this unit for all casual users, especially at this price.
I've been wanting a weather station for a number of years. I had an older AcuRite Temperature/Humidity station that worked great but didn't have rain fall or wind information. After reading the manuals and reviews we finally broke down and purchased this one. As others have said, it was real easy to setup and link to Weather Underground. Probably the hardest part was installing the sensor far enough away from the roof so the summer radiant heat doesn't effect the unit. Will have to see what happens in a few months. My only complaint would be the display does not have a contrast adjustment, so the scrolling information can be, at times, a little fuzzy. But I think I can live with that.
If you are thinking about one of these products this by far is the best deal and it works very well.
Have only had the unit out of the box a short time. Replacing a WMR100a. The WMR100a appears to be higher quality but time will tell. I neglected to read throughly and did not realize the unit was NOT solar powered. The solar panel handles the air circulation not the wireless transmitter. This was a HUGE disappointment on my part. 4 batteries power the unit akin to most others. My WMR batteries (rechargeable) lasted 6-10 months - Accurite claims Lithium will last 2 years and do not suggest rechargeable - so we shall see.
Time will tell after I burn in the unit and mount it outdoor. If you are starting out - this may be a good unit. We'll see how well the PC interface and transmission to things like Wunderground work.
The forecast function is basically useless. Mine always shows it is going to rain. I have gone through the month long calibration several times but get the same result each time. The lighted display panel should show all outside temp sensors but it only shows one so that needs to be improved.
You have no way to know other than comparing your data to the local weather station about the rain fall. I hope that works ok but since I live in the desert where we only get 5 inches of rain for the entire year it isn't a big deal. I like it on my desk and it looks nice but I think of it more as a novelty than a real weather instrument.
This review is for the 5 in one sensor, color display, and bridge - I love my 5 in one! The color display is appealing and easy to read. The bridge makes it so the system is completely wireless and my laptop does not need to be connected for it to operate 24/7... I can monitor the weather at my station remotely via the Backyard software or Weather Underground with my smartphone or my ipad. I am a trained severe weather spotter for MSSL and this unit makes my reporting thorough, accurate, and simple. Relatively easy to install and connect if you follow the directions. Way to go AcuRite! Thanks for a great product!

However, it does not include these features:
*Current moon phase - But, it displays the moon phases across the ticker at the bottom of the indoor display.
*Hunting & Fishing Activity Meter
With the guidance of AcuRite's support staff, we chose the 900wes.
The only inaccuracies identified thus far are wind readings some time.
It was easy to install, setup, configure, and get the information to sync with the mobile application and on WunderGround!
The device has been very good at weather prediction and tracking.
Replaced a WS from a competitor (LaCrosse 308) after several years, and couldn't be happier with this one! Display is bright and clear (could use a contrast setting so you could adjust for different viewing angles) and the sensor and bridge work exactly as described. Looks great and works even better! Try this one...
I picked up the 5 in 1 PWS with color display and bridge for the internet on a Father's day special. It was VERY easy to set up the equipment - took about 30 minutes or so and weather data was visible and flowing to Weather Underground. Spent most of my time preparing for the installation - nice tall pole with strong supports, etc. Nice to see what the weather is exactly where I am and not guesstimate from a different station. Temperature, rain, etc varies significantly from where I'm at in the mountains. An excellent package and I recommend the buy! It would be nice if at some point they included a small weather cam that fed a video feed - just a thought.
Awesome. This my second one.
I replaced a failing system, and wanted something beyond just temperature and humidity sensors. After researching several systems, including several different AcuRite systems, I ordered this. I could not be happier with the choice.
The advantages to this package are 1) the Professional version of the 5-in-1 sensor that includes dual solar panels vs. just one, 2) The USB version of the color display, and 3) The network bridge that allows information to be accessed online or through an app without having to have a PC connected and always on.
I added a couple of temperature/humidity sensors and a second displays to complete the system, allowing me to monitor outdoor conditions from two rooms and monitor a couple of areas (like our wine storage area) from anywhere via the cloud.
Setup could not have been easier. I wound up mounting the 5-1 in about 12-feet above the ground on a series of unused metal pipes I had that were for mounting bird feeders. The hardest part was ensuring they were providing a level base for the sensor. Once that is done, the rest is just a matter of turning components on and registering the bridge with the website. My 5-in-1 is about 120-feet away from the bridge and about the same distance from the two displays, and the reception is fine.
In short, if you are looking for a system that provides a solid display, the ability to download information to the computer, and send the information to the AcuRite cloud for remote monitoring/viewing, this package is the one. I'll (hopefully) review the individual components on their own sites, so details can be seen on those pages.
stop for a while and read about what it can do for me. It is linked to Weather Underground and so that makes me quite pleased!
iv had about 4 differnt weather station's this is the best i have ever owned when it says its going to rain it is going to rain or storms I LOVE IT did i tell you that I LOVE THIS WEATHER STATION thank you ACURITE FOR MAKING A GREAT WEATHER STATION!!!!!!! Marc Nichols Birmingham Alabama
If your on the fence about this one just do it. I have a Davis weather system and it cost a lot more than this did. The data I get from this system is as good as the Davis system.
All it was advertised to be and more!!
Very easy set up. Fun to add your sensor to the Weather Underground website!
The ipad and on-line computer apps are awesome!
The iphone app does not allow "calculated" items to be displayed, like wind chill and dewpoint. Hope it will be added in the future,
Like it so much i ordered two more temp/rh sensors for my indoor temp/rh and attic temp/rh.
This gives me all the current and past history of what is happening at home and that I can retrieve any place I am located though my phone's AcuRite app. Really awesome.
Love the color display,so easy to use compact design of collection center, and value.
I have had other companies (Oregon Scientific) weather stations that I paid twice the price for that never held up and didn't give the amount of information my AcuRite Weather station does.
Matter of fact I have two AcuRite Weather Stations one that I take along in our RV's 5th wheel.
I really like the color display for this product over the black and white versions I've seen on some other display units. The color is easier to read and looks nicer overall. Setting up the outdoor sensor was easy once I found a good place for it. When I was setting up the bridge for the internet, it was very easy for me to set it up. I like seeing the weather around my house on my phone so I know what to expect when I head home from work. You get a lot of features for the price. I would recommend this to a friend.
