About your AcuRite Access and PC Connect Display

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 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 PC Connect Display.

  • 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

AcuRite sensors take readings at their installation location. The sensor readings are sent to your My AcuRite account by an AcuRite Access 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 Access or PC Connect Display 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 an AcuRite Access 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 the My AcuRite Dashboard. 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 Dashboard.
