Data quality control

Real time data gathering is almost guaranteed to produce outliers from time to time for various reasons. I'm surprised that AcuRite does not provide facility to filter them out. For example, this is snapshot of this year's report from my 5-in-1 sensor:



Temp high 73.7C when we barely broke into positive scale? Don't think so.



Relative humidity 127%. Relative to what?



Pressure 3210.64 hPa? We'd all be walking flat like button batteries.

It should not be hard to give us ability to filter out these values. Start simple. Provide min and max acceptable values, and if sensor reading is not within allowed range just drop either entire record (or keep valid values and don't report invalid values if possible). You can do it on server side or client side.

I mean, anything is better than what we have today. Any historic charts, be it on myAcuRite or WU is useless because of these outliers (only one record ruins thousands of good ones).

Hello P.S.,

Are you using a PC Connect display or a smartHUB that is plugged into the router?  Thank you.

Hello Ps,

We have emailed you at the address on file. Please check your inbox. Just to confirm you are not seeing these readings on your display either correct?
