It's important to learn how to manage your AcuRite devices from your My AcuRite account.
An AcuRite Connection device is a stand-alone device that sends readings from AcuRite sensors to My AcuRite over your network (Internet) connection.
A Connection Device is associated to your My AcuRite account by its unique 12-character Device ID.
The Dashboard displays a tab for each Connection Device, which displays the readings and status of its linked sensors.
Access device - supports up to seven (7) compatible AcuRite sensors.
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 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 to your My AcuRite account by its unique 12-character Device ID.
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.
AcuRite sensors take readings at their installation location. The sensor readings are sent to your My AcuRite account by a AcuRite Connection Device or by way of the PC Connect Display and the PC Connect software installed on your computer.
AcuRite Access device - each sensor wirelessly sends its current reading every 1 minute to the Access device. The device then sends the 1 minute readings every 5 minutes to My AcuRite over your network (Internet) connection.
PC Connect - the 5-in-1 readings are sent to PC Connect 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.
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 AcuRite HUB device or PC Connect Display. The sensor readings are being sent to your My AcuRite account. To view the readings of a sensor from My AcuRite, the sensor is required to be linked to a AcuRite HUB device or PC Connect Display.
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 My AcuRite. If using a PC Connect 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 account.
