Wind speed on 5 in 1 display different from Hub

  • Question
  • Updated 8 months ago
I got a 5 in 1 weather unit back in December (Model 01517).  Loved it so much, we decided to get the optional Hub in order to chart the info online, and access from afar.  But when the peak wind speed is registered as 22mph on our in home display, the data from the hub only shows an 18mph peak.  Over the last month, i have yet to see the peak of the hub info the same as the display unit in the house. It's always less online than it is on myacurite.com/#/dashboard. Both are collecting data from the same 5 in 1 unit. Why the difference?  Do the display unit and the hub have the same sample rate or is it different, therefore the different results?

You are correct, They sample at different times and so will show different numbers.  Not sure on the exact timing but quite a difference.  One is at like 3 mins while the other one is almost 12 mins, or something like that.  If your gust happened in between reporting times, it will not register.

Hello Chris,

Your 5in1 display will update every 18 seconds for wind speed readings. My AcuRite will update automatically every 5 minutes.  You can force the page to update by clicking the refresh button. The update times are why you are seeing a difference in the readings. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.

That doesn't make sense in my case. The My acurite dashboard shows a top speed of 49 mph today, but the display, which according to you updates more often, only shows a top speed today of 29mph. According to your statement the Station should have the highest speed as it refreshes more often>

Hello ptvegas1,

What is the model number of your weather station, and what date did the top wind speed readings occur on My AcuRite and on your display? We attempted to locate your account on My AcuRite based off the email address on file but were not able to locate it. Is it registered under a different email address?
