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.

number-two.pngData Transfer

You can set up PC Connect to transfer the readings collected by your 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 5-in-1 Weather Station with My AcuRite and Weather Underground. From My AcuRite, you can view and monitor your conditions online at anytime 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).
