Chris yes your 5 in 1 sensor can be sent to a smarthub in order to not use the PC connect system. Acurite is set to release an updated smarthub called the Acurite Access in January so you may want to wait to order.
We would recommend waiting for the upgrade as Ledrak stated. The AcuRite Access is due to come out, and will give you the functionality to transmit online instead of using the PC Connect. Please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with.
