Multiple Smarthubs?

Curious if the Dashboard and SmartApp can integrate multiple Smarthubs into a single account? I have more flexibility for location of my Smarthubs than I do on my sensors. For extreme reach I will plan to use a range extender.

Scott, I believe you can but only 1 smarthub can upload to Weather Underground. Read some of the posts concerning the range extender. From what I read  it only works if the smarthub cannot see it.

Jef, can you point me to the discussions on range extenders?  I've got a fixed position for my router that is just at the extreme edge of 5 in 1 range. I currently have my hub sitting across the house by a window facing the sensor and communicating back to the router via an electrical house wiring network jack.  It works, but I have intermittent connection issues likely due to interference.

Kevin, in the acurite search bar enter wireless extenders or wireless signal repeaters, there is a plethora of info!

I only have plans to upload the 5/1 sensor to WU.  But my question is specific to the Dashboard display and the SmartApp. 

Thanks!

Hi Acu-Rite,

Can you confirm that two Smarthubs will work on one Dashboard and display those readings on the My Acurite smartphone app. 

Thanks,

Scott

Yes.  Only one device per account can upload to wunderground, however.

Just want to make sure I'm reading this correctly.  I currently have temp sensors in my garage I can't connect to via my smarthub.  If I add an additional smarthub to my home, I'll be able to see all of my temp sensors via my current dashboard in the acurite app?

Hello Russell,

The smartHUB will hold up to 10 compatible sensors. If you are transmitting to Weather Underground you are only able to transmit 1 sensor per Weather Underground account.  If the sensors are compatible they should read on the smartHUB. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.
