I just received the new Lightning Detector Sensor model 06045, and it is not connecting to the Bridge/MyAcuRite. The new Outdoor Temp/Humidity sensor was picked up right away. Any ideas?

That's because it doesn't yet work with myAcurite.

Oh. The manual says it connects to a hub. Hmm.

Someone must have gotten ahead of themselves, then.  It's just not compatible with myAcurite yet.

Hello macosxfiles,

George is correct, the lightening detector is not compatible with My AcuRite at this time.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  Thank you and have a great day!

@Rachell - "at this time." Does that mean it will be in the future?

Hello All,

The lightning detector being added to the smartHUB is something we can consider for future product development. Thank you. Have a good day!

Yes I agree this should absolutely connect to the bridge and I certainly thought the bridge would see it as just another sensor and I am disappointed to find that is not the case. The great feature of Accurite's weather products is the bridge and the ability to see the sensors remotely so this is something that really needs to be integrated.

Hello Tim,

Out Atlas system when released will have the lightning detection feature on it, and it will be compatible with My AcuRite. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.

My expectation when purchasing the Model 06045M was that it 'of course' would connect to my Acu-Link Internet Bridge.  I travel a great deal and live in a very hot zone for lightning in Florida - so I want to be able to monitor it.  Sadly no.
I find this a disappointing indicator of a serious lack of product development efforts by the manufacturer.  Pity.  The gear is good, otherwise.

Jennifer,

Your last update I see is 6 months ago.  Are there any updates on getting compatibility with the Acurite indoor base.  I am interested in knowing the number and frequency of lightning strikes but prefer to be inside while they are occurring.


Thanks.

thinking of selling mine and getting one where they care about the customers concerns and needs not just the dollars they can get from you
