PC Connect provides an easy method to share the readings collected by a single Iris™ (5-in-1) Weather Station with My AcuRite® and Weather Underground, and store readings on your computer.
The status section provides a summary of the setup, connection, and sharing statuses. From here, you can quickly identify if everything is working as expected or if there is an issue with the setup or a connection.
You can set up PC Connect to transfer the readings collected by your Iris™ (5-in-1) Weather Station to a CSV file saved locally on your computer. The readings can be either manually transferred or set up to be automatically transferred based on a set schedule.
You can set how reading units are displayed in the Data Transfer CSV file and set reading calibrations. When sensor placement or an environmental factor may impact readings, setting a reading calibration can improve accuracy and barometric pressure can be adjusted for altitude. Calibrated readings and pressure adjustments are shared with My AcuRite® and Weather Underground and stored in the Data Transfer CSV file.
You can set up PC Connect to share the readings collected by your Iris™ (5-in-1) Weather Station with My AcuRite® and Weather Underground. From My AcuRite®, you can view and monitor your conditions online at any time from the My AcuRite® app or from www.myacurite.com on your laptop or desktop computer.
To share with Weather Underground, you must have a My AcuRite® account and set up sharing to My AcuRite®, then register your AcuRite Weather Station (Personal Weather Station) with Weather Underground to obtain a Station ID and Password (Station Key).
To ensure continuous sharing with My AcuRite® and Weather Underground and to allow scheduled Data Transfers, the PC Connect software must be open on your computer and your computer must be on and have an Internet connection at all times. The PC Connect software can be minimized.
To prevent your computer from entering sleep mode, it is recommended to enable the Always-on Connection setting.
