Heres an odd one and the solution. I recently changed my Smarthub over to the Access. I took my time and let everything connect. I stopped sharing to WU, then used the replace option in MyAcurite. Everything went fine. Reports to MyAcurite were almost immediate, and WU hardly missed a beat. After a few hours, i noticed the pressure graph in WU was zig zagging about .5 mb at what seemed to be the reporting rate. This continued until finally i remembered the Smarthub was still powered up, and connected to the router. I disconnected it and unplugged it. The pressure graph smoothed out immediatly(see pic). Even though i had stopped the WU reporting before registering the new Access, somehow, it appears the SmartHub was still uploading the Pressure reading at every report time to the same WU account.

Hello MuskokaJohn,

Thank you for providing us with your findings. We have noticed that the smartHUB may continue to send data to Weather Underground if the splash page does not clear the Station ID and password that were entered when using the HUB to share.  Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
