AcuRite 01535M in Europe - Limitations

  • Question
  • Updated 5 months ago
Hi All,

I know this topic has been discussed many times... I am planning to purchase Acurite 01535M station and use this overseas (Czech republic). I am awared of timezones/power/forecast limitations, but I am still little bit confused. I would appreciate if anybody can anwer my questions.
1) Power - to use acurite station in 230V network I only need converter between acurite adapter and 230V socket right?
2) Timezone - I am planning to use station locally, I am not interested in forecast or internet functions. Am I right I would be able to set my time manually so station will work with my custom time? 
3) What functions will not be usable because of custom time? Moon phase maybe?
4) Is Acurite firmware updatable? E.g. I hope acurite will once deliver update with worldwide timezones - would it be possible to update firmware?
Thanks a lot,
Vojtech

Hello Vojtech,

You would need a power adapter converter. The time zone is what the time will go off of but you can manually set the time to your time. Make sure you have the DST option set to No. The moon phase is based off the calendar date. The firmware on this is not updatable, and this model number doesn't have the online functionality without purchasing additional equipment.

Hallo Jeniffer,
Thanks for reply. I am running 01535M two days at home and all works.
Let me share one experience (posibly helpful for someone else) - old digital alarm clock disrupted clock accuracy +6 seconds each minute. (Obviously, alarm clock removal solved the problem)
