Does AcuRite have any weather stations that will work internationally? Specifically in New Zealand.

From what I've heard from another user, there's a 5n1 model offered that has been modified for use  in Australia.  The model number might be 2032CAUDI.

I have no idea how you would get one, though, except from perhaps an Australian dealer.

Otherwise, you can take a "normal" 5n1, mount it "backwards" (so the solar panels face north) and then pull off the wind vane, hollow out the key in the vane and mount it backwards from its initial orientation.

It's not a hard modification.

Also, you may need to get an appropriate power adapter or transformer that will work for your electrical power system to power the console.  This is important if you want to keep the console backlight turned on.

Hi Sandy,

We have 2 models that will work in New Zealand.  Here are links to them both; they are only available through local retailers in Australia.
