Custom Alert Types

Follow

My AcuRite offers a variety of Custom Alert Types to support your monitoring needs. Each alert type is associated with a compatible AcuRite sensor. When selecting an alert type, My AcuRite verifies you have a compatible sensor.

 

Dew Point alert

Alert notification is generated when a Dew Point measurement is above or below a specified degree.

Dew Point is the temperature at which the air becomes fully saturated with water vapor (i.e.100% humidity).

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station, Temperature & Humidity Sensor, Outdoor Temperature & Humidity Monitor, Lightning Tower

 

 

Feels Like alert

Alert notification is generated when a Feels Like measurement is above or below a specified degree.

Feels Like is a measurement of how hot or cold it really feels like outside. The Feels Like temperature is calculated and displayed only when the current temperature reading is between 40° Fahrenheit (4° Celsius) and 80° Fahrenheit (27° Celsius).

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station

 

 

Heat Index alert

Alert notification is generated when a Heat Index measurement is above or below a specified degree.

Heat Index is a measurement of how hot it feels outside and is only calculated when temperatures exceed 80° Fahrenheit (27° Celsius).

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station

 

 

Humidity alert

Alert notification is generated when a Humidity reading is above or below a specified degree.

Humidity, or relative humidity, is the ratio of moisture in the air as compared to the maximum amount of moisture the air can hold, which varies depending on the air temperature.

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station, Temperature & Humidity Sensor, Outdoor Temperature & Humidity Monitor, Indoor Room Temperature & Humidity Monitor, Lightning Tower

 

Light Intensity alert

Alert notification is generated when a Light Intensity reading is above or below a specified Lux.

Light intensity refers to the strength or amount of light produced by the sun. 
This is measured by Lux. 

1. Dark/Night – 0-500 lux
2. Low Light – 501 – 5,380 lux
3. Overcast/Shade – 5,381 – 21,520 lux
4. Daylight – 21,521 – 43,050 lux
5. Direct Sun – 43,051 lux or greater

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station

 

Lightning Closest Strike Distance alert

Alert notification is generated when the Closest Lightning Strike is registered within a specified distance.

Lightning is the occurrence of natural electrical discharge of very short duration and high voltage between a cloud and the ground or within a cloud, accompanied by a bright flash.

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, Lightning Tower

 

 

Rain Rate alert

Alert notification is generated when the Rainfall has exceeded a specified measurement during the current hour.

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, Rain Gauge

 

 

Rainfall alert

Alert notification is generated when rainfall is either detected (including specified measurement) or not detected for the current day.

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, Rain Gauge

 

 

Soil Temperature alert

Alert notification is generated when a Soil Temperature reading is above or below a specified degree.

Compatible sensors: Liquid & Soil Temperature Sensor

 

 

Temperature alert

Alert notification is generated when a Temperature reading is above or below a specified degree.

Example: Alert me once the temperature has risen above 90° F

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station, Temperature & Humidity Sensor, Outdoor Temperature & Humidity Monitor, Indoor Room Temperature & Humidity Monitor, Lightning Tower

 

UV Index alert

Alert notification is generated when a UV Index reading is above or below a specified intensity.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is defined as that portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between X-rays and visible light.
This is measured by intensity from 0-16. 
1. Low 0 – 2
2. Moderate 3-5
3. High 6-7
4. Very High 8-10
5. Extreme 11+

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station

 

 

Water alert

Alert notification is generated when Water is either not detected or detected by a wired water detector sensor.

Compatible sensors: Wired Water Detector

 

 

Water Temperature alert

Alert notification is generated when a Water Temperature reading is either above or below a specified degree.

Compatible sensors: Liquid & Soil Temperature Sensor

 

 

Wind Chill alert

Alert notification is generated when a Wind Chill measurement is below a specified degree.

Wind Chill is a measurement of how cold it really feels outside. The wind chill formula relies on environmental data including the wind speed and the ambient air temperature, Wind Chill is a measure of how cold it really feels outside and is only calculated and displayed when temperatures are below 40° Fahrenheit (4° Celsius).

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station

 

 

Wind Gust alert

Alert notification is generated when a Wind Gust reading is above a specified measurement.

Compatible sensors: Atlas Weather Station, 5-in-1 Weather Station, 3-in-1 Weather Station

 

 

Wired Humidity alert

Alert notification is generated when the Humidity reading (wired humidity sensor only) is above or below a specified degree.

Compatible sensors: Spot Check Temperature & Humidity Sensor

 

 

Wired Temperature alert

Alert notification is generated when the Temperature reading (wired temperature sensor only) is above or below a specified degree.

Compatible sensors: Spot Check Temperature & Humidity Sensor
