Lightning Detector

  • Updated 1 year ago
I am considering purchasing the "Dual Display & 5-in-1 Weather Environment System with PC Connect and My AcuRite"  Model: 947WES. Can anyone tell me if this model has a Lightning Detector?

Next question, can I add a third and fourth Color Display. I know this sounds odd, but we a multi floor building and it would be nice to add additional displays without mounting multiple weather stations outside. I appreciate it if someone from AcuRite could respond so that when I do decide to make a purchase, I can rely on what I was informed in this conversation.

Thank You.

David I know you want to hear from someone from Acurite but the lightning detector is not compatible with this system. A far as displays you can have as many as you want. If you are looking for a 5 in 1 with lightning detection look at this.

Hello vze2mp9g,

This weather station is not compatible to read the lightning detector. We do have a hand held lightning detector. The link is posted below. You can have as many displays connected to the sensor as you want, as long as they are in range. You want to make sure the displays are on the same A-B-C channel as the sensor.
