My 5-in-1 Weather Station base shows a high wind of 39mph and the web history only shows 32mph for yesterday. Even the ticker on my base station shows the high wind of 39. Why does the history on the web app show the high wind of 32mph?
because the Display is real time while the Hub that reports to MyAcurite.com is a sample at 5 minute intervals. This is not measuring over 5 minutes but what it happening exactly at 5 minutes. So if the 39 mph wind was not on the 5 minute snapshot, it will not be shown. Just like taking a movie and then isolating just one frame. The Display is the movie while the Hub to MyAcurite.com is a snapshot at that point in time.....
I’m sorry to ramble on, but I think I’m starting to understand that it’s only grabbiing one sample out of multiple ones. My thinking is that works fine for tempature, humidity and pressure since it changes slowly. For wind that can change rapidly it should look at all the samples and use the highest one. Doing that will vastly improve the accuracy of the data.
