Very Disappointed with Access

Very Disappointed with new Access. I don't like that it only updated every five minutes. Completely misses out on the wind gusts. I can see on the wall display what the peak wind speed is but can not check the dashboard to see when it was because upload time missed it.

 I have a room sensor with temp probe mounted on my boiler which the Access can't pickup. Access is in the same place the hub was located. Acurite gives you a 6 foot Ethernet cable which does not put it in range of the room sensor for some reason. Now I'm going to need to buy a long cable which will take the Access from the window closest the 5-1 sensor and another outdoor temp sensor and put it to the opposite corner of the room which hopefully will still reach outdoor sensor now because they will be in opposite corner of house.

And now Acurite says they are extending end of service life. I'm about ready to box it back up and return it.

MyAcurite does not display gust data. Gust data is, however, transmitted to wunderground in rapid-fire fashion.
