Your Dashboard

Follow

Your Dashboard displays the most recent readings sent by your AcuRite sensors, a 12-hour Reading Graph for each type of reading, and the current weather and forecast predictions at the location of your Connection Device. Connection Devices may include the AcuRite Access, PC Connect Display, or Direct Wi-Fi Display.

 

  • Dashboard data is automatically refreshed every 5 minutes and the date and time of the last refresh are displayed to the right of the tab area. To manually refresh the data, select your browser refresh feature, or select the refresh ic_refresh_black_24px.svg icon. To manually refresh the data in the app, swipe down.

        • When streaming sensor data online to your My AcuRite account, you may see some minor differences in your data when comparing the display unit to your My AcuRite Dashboard. The Dashboard is updated every 5 minutes. A display unit receives an update from your sensor every 10-30 seconds. Manually refreshing the browser or app will not force a sooner update. The update interval always remains at 5 minutes.
  • Readings are displayed in the time zone of the Postal Code set in the profile of the Connection Device.

  • View the status of a sensor, including its battery and wireless signal strength, and the date and time My AcuRite last received a reading from the sensor.
