I bought the unit with smart hub because I thought you needed that to use remotely from cell phone, then after I got mine I saw units with out smart hub cheaper and it showed using phone so I am confused and dontknow what smart hub is for? what does it do and communicate with what? I thought the display communicated with sensor out in yard . Im worried that if smart hub communicates with sensor in yard I need to locate in better spot so I dont lose signal which has happened once, so that is why I need to know what communicates with what and why. Other weather station dont have Hub but shows it cand be used with phone.

The SmartHUB eliminates the need for a PC to be running 24/7 in order to forward data to the internet so you can access it with your smart phone.

You can also access up to 10 different sensors remotely using the SmartHUB.

If you use the "PC Connect" version, you can only access your weatherstation data and nothing else.  Also, you need to keep the PC running all the time, which is unacceptable to many people.

In short, the SmartHUB gives you more capability without the drain of running a PC round-the-clock.

You'll want to put the SmartHUB in a good location so that it can hear the sensor in your yard plus any other sensors you might add later.
