Is it possible to delete data from myacurite? I calibrated my rain gauge and I would like to remove the "rainfall" data that now shows up.
Thank you

Hello ckyr,

You cannot delete data from My AcuRite at this time.  We would recommend unplugging the smartHUB when you are calibrating your rain gauge.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  Thank you and have a great day!

Hello Todd,
I see you are using PC Connect software for Mac.  Do you see the erroneous rain on your display and on My AcuRite? Thank you.

Hi Rachel. Yes, on both the display and MyAcuRite.

Hello Todd,

If you are seeing the erroneous readings on both the display and My AcuRite that would tell us there could be something going on with your sensor. What does it read for rain on your display, and what is reading on My AcuRite? What should you be getting for readings? Are you getting rain readings when there is no rain?

Actually my main concern is clearing the erroneous data from MyAcuRite. That data now appears to be cleared on MyAcuRite. I have always been able to clear the display. The erroneous data was caused by me moving the 5 in 1.

Hello Todd,
At this time you cannot clear or edit readings on My AcuRite.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We do appreciate your feedback and will certainly keep this in mind for possible future updates. Thank you.

I would like to add my .02 cents to this discussion. My 5 in 1 station occasionally produces anomalous readings like a temperature of 1500 degrees or a pressure point of 200. There should be a way to edit those unreasonable values out (not to mention why are they getting accepted by the program in the first place?). One really bad data point collapses all the good data to the bottom of the chart rendering all valid data useless for charting purposes.

In the absence of a decent data point editor - a basic "clear all historical data" should only be as simple as deleting a file. It shouldn't be that hard. If I knew the database layout I could probably write an editing program in a few hours - having written many such programs in my career. Come-on guys... this aint rocket science!

Thanks Jennifer - I never noticed any wildly inaccurate readings on the display but then again they are only one reading out of thousands. So far, if I chart the whole year, there are only 5 such aberrant readings but like I said above, only one bad data point collapses all the good data to the bottom of a chart rendering the chart useless. This is why having a data editor is so important. And not just for aesthetics as it allows the user to repair data points that would restore the charts validity again.

For the benefit of other readers I have been downloading the .CSV file every so often. Then, in Excel, I can easily search for any data values over x, delete them, and then do the charting in Excel.

Too bad there is no way to backload the edited data back to AcuRite

Me too. I get bad data on temperature like this, twice this month. 5in1using PC Connect. I would need to be looking at the display while the bad data is reported. Its not likely I would be in front of it for the one data point. Is there a way to view historical data on the display? Do you know if this is caused by a fault in the sensor, the transmission to the display, or in the connection from the display to myacurite?


I looked at the history on wunderground. For the two days in April that show a daily high temp over 100F (not likely in New York) there is no row in the daily data that lists the 5 minute data uploads that has these high readings, they are all normal. The graphs of the 5min temp data don't show the spike, it only appears in a graph of the daily high. Perhaps there is a data field "Daily High" that the display is sending to PC Connect and that occasionally goes bonkers?

Hello Don,

The only way to view the historical data in the display would be to download the csv file via the PC Connect software, and then see if you get the same reading there.  There is bad data that has gotten through on My AcuRite and doesn't display on the display. This is why we want to know if it is reading on the display as well because that could mean there is a sensor issue. Thank you.

Since If I added a second temp/hum sensor to my setup that sensor would begin with a clean slate when it shows up on Myacurite. Since I want to erase old data from my existing temp/hum sensor, is there a way to make MyAcurite think my current sensor is a totally new sensor so the old data is no longer listed on Myacurite for that sensor and my current sensor shows up as a new sensor? (Reason-- my sensor was used outside but is now being used in cellar to monitor important  temp/humidity trends-- old data is now moot and in fact makes any new data from cellar skewed as far as hi/lo, etc.)

Hello paulg,

Unfortunately, you cannot clear the previous data from a sensor.  If you remove the sensor from the account and re-add the same sensor all your previous historical data will come back to the account. We do appreciate your feedback and will certainly keep this in mind for possible future updates.  Thank you.

I discovered a bees nest in my sensor around 2 month's go.  Had to remove the cover to get it cleaned out.  Did that with no batteries in the sensor, but apparently there are other batteries because when I reassembled the sensor, the rain gauge indicated 850 inches of rain.  What interesting is the online data doesn't show that anomaly, but the indoor reporting indicates 900 inches of rain for the year.  Online it has 45 inches of rain for the year which I believe is accurate.  Anyway, it would be nice to have software or a way to clear these anomalies.

Hello Cam, 

 What is the model number on your weather station?  If the batteries are removed from the sensor it is not transmitting so should not register any rain readings. You would need to remove all the batteries from the sensor. To clear the readings on the display you can reset the display by pressing the reset button on the back of the display for about 10 seconds depending on the model number of your display.  This will clear all historical readings.

Its Possible the solar panel circuit is where the phantom power was sourced. Good catch and thanks for posting. Im sure the engineer folks would want to know that as well.

To the SW engineer’s: There needs to a God mode, root mode or the like to simply correct the data. The point of collecting data is to collect Acurate data. Pun intended.

The solar panels only power the aspiration fan.  They are not electrically connected to anything else in the system.

Hello Steven & Cam,

George is correct. The solar panel only power the fan in the sensor. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.

I have the same problem with data.
My initial pressure reading was -2377 which needs to be edited out.
It would seem that there are probably a large number of entries that are inaccurate and need editing.  As suggested, there should be filters in place rejecting these spurious readings and a data editor is needed ASAP, otherwise the whole point of the exercise becomes a joke.

Developers - please listen to what is being requested and act on it.  As said previously, it is not rocket science..

COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU.   How hard is it to create a data point editor?  Worst case, let us at least reset all old data.  I'm really tired of seeing my hottest day being 165 degrees and lowest at -32.  Yes I live in TX, but geez... it never gets close to either of those extremes and it throws the charts off wildly.  If they don't actually plan on adding this basic feature, then don't tell us that you are.  It's been 12 months since the last time I heard it was under development.  It obviously isn't.

Yes, it’s been over a year also. Sad ... just not important enough to report accurate info. Even worse not enabling us to manually correct the data and pretend our personal weather station are not just trinkets.

Hello All,

Thank you for the feedback regarding deleting readings from My AcuRite. We will pass this along to our development team.

Good morning Jennifer,
Have you any indication as to when we will see some action??

Also,
Is there an area where we can post requests for new features and fixes for the current software such as, in Australia, the reset time is NOT 00.00hrs, but 09.00hrs for data such as rain (refer Bureau of Meteorology Australia - http://www.bom.gov.au/catalogue/observations/about-weather-observations.shtml and http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/data/stations/about-weather-station-data.shtml), and being able to add the yearly rainfall to date would be nice so that the yearly rainfall is correct independently of when you start using Acurite.

Thanks,

John S.
