Barometric pressure off

I have a 5 and 1 sensor and the Smart Hub. I connect the setup to Weather Bug PWS. My display vs what I report are about 5 in HG off! The display is within .1-.2 of other apps by my hub reports -5” to Weatherbug. Does the Smart Hub sense barometric pressure or does it get the info from the sensor ? Why is it off so much? It’s been doing this for months.

The baro sensor sending data is in the SmartHUB.

I don't know what software you are using, but my understanding is that publishing through WeatherBug is being shut down at the end of this month (May).  Reporting will now have to be through CWOP.  You would need to contact the publisher of your software for details on how to make the transition.

As for why you are about 5 inHg off, it might have to do with how you have the SmartHUB set up.  Is it set for "Station" pressure or "Adjusted"?  If it is sending "Station" pressure, it will be lower than you might expect depending on your elevation.
