AcuRite Wireless Weather Center w/ Wind & Rain
Foster your love of meteorology and hone your weather prediction skills using the AcuRite Wireless Weather Center with Wind and Rain. This all in one station adds a wealth of weather data to your desk or tabletop in moments, and even has a bottom weather ticker for forecasting the conditions. The sleek black casing lends a modern look to the item, and its wide screen provides you the temperature, humidity, wind speed, rainfall, and time and date at once. All outdoor data are received from the versatile external sensor, placed up to 300 feet away and 5' or higher off the ground. This sensor uses powerful radio frequency waves to transmit the information to the indoor console, bringing plenty of weather updates to the comfort of your home. 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 its current direction. Both the average and peak wind speeds occupy the 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 of they are remaining steady, increasing, or decreasing. A forecast icon and the barometric pressure readings rest beneath the wind compass, and a phrase beneath the pressure reading 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 has the rainfall in inches, and also indicates 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 showing the signal strength received from the outdoor sensor.
This fantastic station not only offers you visible weather data; it also has a wealth of 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, and scrolls through the forecast, moon phase, real feel weather, and temperature highs and lows. An arrow button allows you to manually scroll through this ticker quickly, while two other buttons enable you to add or remove phrases from the screen. This innovative station offers accurate forecasts with its 14 day learning mode. For the first two weeks after setup, the unit regularly calculates the altitude and overall atmospheric conditions, for a custom and precise station. The indoor console is easily powered by the included AC adapter, and five AA batteries (not included) can also 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. Five lithium or alkaline AA batteries (not included) are also needed to power the outdoor sensor, while a solar panel on it adds more power and extends the lifespan of the batteries used. This sensor easily mounts to a post or pole using its included bracket and hardware, and its plastic body lends durability to it. The black casing and clear plastic frame of the indoor console ensure a modern feel, and this piece can rest on a level surface with its integrated stand. Use screws to attach the indoor unit to a wall for more versatility. Monitor all facets of the weather from your home with this Wireless Weather Center with Wind and Rain. One year limited warranty.
