I have been asking that for a very very long time. They used to have one and they make one for a 3rd party.... I certainly wish they would...  I would buy one in a heart beat! and I have been asking for one.!

I see they have a liquid sensor which would work.  I just need to know if it can be added to one of their weather stations.

I don't see a sensor like that that transmits a signal. So my guess would be no.

Richard if you are talking about the outdoor monitor for liquid temp https://www.acurite.com/monitor-with-liquid-soil-temperature-sensor-00275ls.html you could purchase a home environment display or you could purchase the new access and monitor the temp remotely on your smartphone.

  I use a tower sensor inside a plastic spice jar. I keep it in my chlorine dispenser. I can see the pool temperature on Myacurite dashboard. It's an easy to do fix.

Richard at this time it does not look like any of Acurites equipment is compatible with other companies equipment. I say at this time because it has been requested several times and now the new Access unit has more memory and more capability. Time will tell.

yes the Access (this replaces the Smarthub) is the unit that connects your sensors online. You connect it with an Ethernet cable to your router and all your compatible sensors can be seen online.https://www.acurite.com/access-my-acurite-remote-monitoring.html

Hello Richard,

Ledrak is correct. You can use the liquid and soil probe on a multi sensor display. If you want to view the information remotely you would need the AcuRite Access. Ledrak has provided the link above. Please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with.

Hello Richard, We do not have a pool sensor that is compatible with the 01512.  The only item we have that would work is the product that product Ledrak put the link up for, and as stated would report to either a home environment display or through the Access.  We do not currently have one that floats.

Hello Sparkie951,

Thank you for the feedback. We will let our development team know about the interest in a pool thermometer that is compatible with My AcuRite. Right now the liquid and soil sensor would give you the same readings that the pool thermometer would. Please let us know if there is anything further we can we can assist you with.
