MyAcurite.com needs to have data sent from your system....either SmartHub, Access, PC Connect or I guess some of the new Displays that are WiFi enabled.  if none of these are used, Dashboard will not have any data since you have not shared it to your MyAcurite.com account.......

Hmmmm... here is my situation. I set it up here at home and it worked great. I am a middle school science teacher, I bought this to have for my students.... my access light is blue showing a normal connection... But I can't seem to get it to reconnect to wunderground or dashboard. I can see my sensor on the dashboard app... But the weather parameters are blank.. n/a. I believe my school has a cell phone signal blocker.... i didnt know if that was interfering or if there was a firewall... that I can't get past. I get emails saying the dashboard hasnt recieved data in 2 hours. Check location and conne rions... but i even have it in my classroom on a tripod to get the connection started.... still nothing..Ideas?

fantastic.

just remember that you hime Display is real time "movie" and the Hub is a "snapshot" at 5 minute intervals. Rarely will the max wind speed on Dashboard be the same on the Display, the Dashboard will be lower.

WU will IF on MyAcurite.com setup, you shared with WU AND on WU you did their setup to point to your PWS (personal weather station)

Ok so myacurite is set up... it is shared... But the "pointing"... you mean insert the station id in all caps and pw? Or is there another step to "pointing"

on both accounts, you need to point to each other.

MA allows sharing to specific WU acct with password info.

WU needs to point to MA (it has been years since I set this up) and your specific weather station.

just need to go into each of your accounts and make sure all the setup information is there.
