AcuRite Wireless Weather Center with USBBecome an avid weather forecaster easily with help from the AcuRite Wireless Weather Center with USB. This modern station offers you complete weather data on a single screen, for a full look at the conditions outdoors. The black, plastic casing creates a durable unit, and it displays beautifully on a tabletop or desk. The generous screen has wind, rain, and temperature data, all received via radio waves from the 5-in-1 sensor placed outdoors up to 300 feet away. The center of the top line has a wind compass, with the current wind speed in miles per hour in its center, as well as an arrow with the breeze’s current direction. Both the average and peak wind speeds occupy one top corner of the display, while a smaller icon on the compass indicates the previous wind direction. The outdoor temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius occupies the other top corner, followed by the humidity. Both these values are accompanied by trend arrows, noting if they are remaining steady, increasing, or decreasing. A forecast icon and the barometric pressure readings rest beneath the wind compass, and another arrow beneath the pressure value notes if it is rising, falling, or remaining steady. A square menu to the left of this offers you the heat index, dew point, wind chill, indoor temperature and humidity, or rainfall rate, and a button next to it allows you to scroll through all information. The right corner on this screen offers the rainfall in inches, and also has the monthly rain total followed by the total rain ever measured by your unit. A band holding the time and date follow this line, along with an icon indicating the signal strength received from the outdoor sensor.
This fantastic station not only allows you to view weather conditions; it also has a bevy of audible alarms which can be set for different meteorological events. The bottom line of the main screen notes whether any alarms are set, and for what weather category, such as rainfall, wind speed, or outdoor temperature. Its opposite corner notes the recorded high and low corresponding to the category shown. Six buttons beneath this line dissect the LCD screen, allowing you to set the weather alarms and cycle through the histories. A smaller screen sits beneath this band of buttons, creating the fun weather ticker. This section scrolls through the forecast, moon phase, the feel outdoors, and temperature highs and lows. An arrow button allows you to manually scroll through the ticker quickly, while two other buttons enable you to add or remove phrases from this section. It also offers diagnostic information, such as when the memory is nearing full or any batteries are low. An included USB cable plugs into the port on the back of the console, allowing you to transmit the saved weather data to your PC using the manufacturer’s software. A weather app for your Smartphone can also be linked to this software, for precise home weather at any time. The station’s 14 day learning mode calculates your altitude and overall atmospheric conditions for the first two weeks after setup, offering accurate forecasts once complete. This indoor console uses the included AC adapter for power, and six AA batteries (not included) may be installed as a backup power source. The blue backlight keeps the screen easily visible when using AC power, or alights shortly when a button is pressed if using batteries. Install four lithium or alkaline AA batteries (not included) in the outdoor sensor for power, and be sure to place this unit at least 5’ off the ground for accurate wind data. A solar panel on the front of this unit enhances and extends the battery life, and orienting it south on a post or pole ensures it receives optimal sunlight. The plastic body of the sensor offers durability, and its five different features make it perfect for all your weather monitoring needs. The included mounting bracket and hardware attach the unit to a post or pole easily. The black casing on the indoor unit brings a streamlined look, and it perfectly rests on a table using its integrated stand. For more mounting options, use screws to attach this console to a wall.
