  • Updated 3 years ago
I just setup my Acu-rite 5-1 that I purchased from Costco and the LCD display is showing the outside temperature and wind and humidity.  I have the USB plugged into my computer and data is being sent to weather undground website, but the Acu-link.com my Backyard Weather is saying there is no signal and it displays temperature for a city in Wisconsin.   Any tips on how to get acu-link to see the correct data?

I think I might have fixed my own problem.  I assumed that by registering the AcuRite Stream that the console was linked to my Backyard Weather; however, I just manually entered in the MAC address of my LCD console as if it was an AcuLink Internet Bridge and now all my sensors are showing up.  Not sure if it is working as intended.  Just glad it is working.

Hi Carl,

The weather from Wisconsin can be removed by going to the link that says follow my friends bridge in the drop down tab attached to your email address at the top right hand corner of the website.

The city in Wisconsin is AcuRite's headquarters and is just used to demonstrate what the AcuLink dashboard will look like.  You can delete it from your own dashboard with no problem.

I tried the iPhone and iPad apps. I can't get it to link up either. I am about ready to take it back to Costco.

Hi Mike,

I recommend setting up your My Backyard Weather online first and ensure that you have it looking and reading the way that you want it to.  After you have it set up on the website, you should be able to download the apps and log in with the same log in information you used for the website.  If you are unable to register you mac address, please let us know.
