It's important to learn how to manage your AcuRite devices from your My AcuRite account.

 

AcuRite Access

An AcuRite Access is a stand-alone device that sends readings from AcuRite sensors to My AcuRite over your network (Internet) connection.

  • The AcuRite Access is associated with your My AcuRite account by its unique 12-character Device ID.
  • Once you add the Connection Device to your account, you then link your AcuRite sensors to the Connection Device in your My AcuRite account.

  • The Dashboard displays a tab for each Connection Device, which displays the readings and status of its linked sensors.

  • The Access device supports up to seven (7) compatible AcuRite sensors.

 

 

PC Connect Display

The PC Connect Display is the indoor unit that displays the readings from a single 5-in-1 Weather Station. Using the PC Connect software installed on your Windows 7 or higher computer and the USB connection between your computer and the PC Connect Display, the readings are sent over your network (Internet) connection to your My AcuRite account.

  • A PC Connect Display is associated with your My AcuRite account by its unique 12-character Device ID.

  • Once you add the PC Connect Display to your account, you then link your 5-in-1 sensor to the Connection Device in your My AcuRite account.

  • The PC Connect Display's linked 5-in-1 sensor and its readings are displayed in its Dashboard tab.

  • A PC Connect Display is listed as a tab on your Dashboard.

 

 

Direct to Wi-Fi Display

A Direct to Wi-Fi Display is the indoor unit that displays the readings from a single 5-in-1 Weather Station. After connecting the display to your Wi-Fi network, the readings are sent over your network (Internet) connection to your My AcuRite account.

  • A Direct to Wi-Fi Display is associated with your My AcuRite account by its unique 12-character Device ID.

  • Once you add the Direct to WiFi Display to your account, you then link your 5-in-1 sensor to the Connection Device in your My AcuRite account.

  • The Direct to Wi-Fi Display's linked 5-in-1 sensor and its readings are displayed in its Dashboard tab.

  • A Direct to Wi-Fi Display is listed as a tab on your Dashboard.

 

 

 

AcuRite Sensors

AcuRite sensors take readings at their installation location. The sensor readings are sent to your My AcuRite account through your Connection Device.

  • AcuRite Access device - sends the current readings from your sensors every 5 minutes to My AcuRite over your network (Internet) connection.

  • PC Connect Display- the 5-in-1 readings are sent to the PC Connect software by way of the USB connection between the Display and your computer. For PC Connect use, My AcuRite sharing must be enabled in the PC Connect software.

  • Direct to Wi-Fi Display- the 5-in-1 readings are sent to My AcuRIte over your network (Internet) connection every 5 minutes.

From the profile of a Connection Device, your AcuRite sensors are listed in two categories - either in My Sensors or Available Sensors.

  • My Sensors - lists the sensors that are linked to the Connection Device dashboard. These sensor readings are being sent to your My AcuRite Dashboard. To view the readings of a sensor from My AcuRite Dashboard, the sensor is required to be linked to a Connection Device.

  • Available Sensors - the sensors that are not linked to a Connection Device. If the device is an AcuRite Access device, the sensors listed are in wireless range of the Access device, but the readings are not being sent to the My AcuRite Dashboard. If using a PC Connect or Direct to Wi-Fi Display, My AcuRite sharing is enabled in the PC Connect software, but the readings collected by the 5-in-1 Weather Station are not being sent your My AcuRite Dashboard.
