I'm curious. The 0124M HD bundle doesn't have details on whether or not it is compatible with PC connect. Does anyone have experience with this unit and PC connect working together? I am in the market for one of the 5-in-1 stations and would like to have my weather readings a part of Weather Underground. Thanks in advance!

PS – does the lightning detector also work with Weather Underground reporting?

That display has no USB port, so it will not work with PC Connect.

To report to the internet, your best bet is to add a SmartHUB to the mix.  Or you could add a second display with a USB port.  The SmartHUB is usually the better bet as it doesn't need a PC running 24/7.  The SmartHUB is also expandable to 10 sensors.

Wunderground has no support for lightning detectors.  Also be aware that the lightning detector doesn't report to myAcurite yet.

George,

Thanks for the quick response. I've been window shopping and comparing for a bit now and finally settled on Acurite. While I've done some research, ask the question definitely doesn't hurt. I like being able to reach out to the community for their knowledge as well.

I'm surprised that the lightning detectors aren't integrated in Wunderground, especially for the areas where storms get intense. We don't have a lot of users that have stations here in El Paso but every bit of info helps in my opinion.

Thanks again!
