I have a website where I upload weather data to. I would love to have the ability to upload lightning information as it would be most handy to people who are boating. Does your equipment have the capability to upload lightning data to the internet?

Only with the Atlas, but that's not on sale yet.

The $20 lighting detection sensor often bundled with 5n1 systems is not currently able to report to myAcurite, but many have been requesting that feature be added.  It would require a firmware update to the Access hardware.

Thank you for your reply. I have been hearing about Atlas for a long time, but it doesn't appear to be on the horizon. I have been specifically holding off on buying a system because I want to be able to upload lightning strike info so that boaters can be aware of impending danger.
