AcuRite Basic Wireless Rain GaugeMonitor how many inches of rain falls in your backyard with the AcuRite Basic Wireless Rain Gauge. The compact design makes placement of this gauge simple, while its black and silver colors lend a modern touch to the piece. A black, self-emptying rain collector has a wide opening at the top, and its level base can be placed on a wealth of flat surfaces outdoors. A slight grid at the top of the collector prevents debris from entering it and altering your readings. This collector wirelessly sends its data to an indoor display, placed up to 100 feet away. The top line of this station notes the rainfall in your choice of inches or millimeters, and the large numbers here keep the information easily visible. The line beneath this brings a wealth of data to you in moments. One bottom corner has an antenna icon, followed by a battery, indicating the signal strength and battery power from the outdoor collector. The other corner has another battery icon, this one displaying the remaining power in the console’s batteries, and a tube icon noting if the rainfall is currently shown in inches or millimeters. The center of this line features a changing icon; just clouds indicate no rain is falling, clouds with a few diagonal lines beneath them note a light rain, and clouds with several diagonal lines display a heavy rain. An alarm can also be set to beep when the rainfall changes from none to a light amount, light to heavy, or from heavy rain to dry, to keep you informed of weather changes. One button on the base of this station alters the measurements from inches to millimeters, while another allows you to reset the rainfall information. The third button illuminates the screen for five seconds, adding even more visibility. This console uses two AAA batteries (not included) for power, while the collector requires two AA batteries (not included) to run. The indoor unit can either hang on a wall via its keyhole opening on the back, or be placed on a level surface with its integrated stand. Place the collector on a level surface outdoors, ensuring the area is unobstructed for accurate readings. The plastic housing adds durability to both pieces, and the black color offers a timeless hint. Easily measure rainfall in your backyard with this Basic Wireless Rain Gauge.
