Battery backup does it have warning show up that the batteries need replaced? What is backup for? What time period you need to replace batteries as I do not want acid leak from them that forgot to change them and have to buy other access.

You will be alerted through myAcurite if the batteries on the Access are low.  

The backup allows the Access to keep acquiring sensor data during a power outage.  When power is restored, that data recorded during the outage will be back-filled into myAcurite.

Hello John,

George is correct. It will provide you with an alert when the batteries need to be changed. The batteries are for backup should you have a power outage. The Access will hold up to 12 hours of data. When the internet is restored the information will send to My AcuRite and fill the missed information.

I just noticed the AcuRite® AccessTM 09155M on the AcuRite website.  Does that replace the current 09150M smartHUB? If so, is it any better than the 09150M ?? Also, will there be an free replacement or upgrade discount for my current 09150M?

Compatibility with 1GB switches and the Apple routers where the HUB was not.
Will receive over the air updates for firmware. The Access checks in every night at midnight to see if there is a new version and downloads
