Set up Weather Sharing

Follow

From PC Connect, you can share the readings collected by your Iris™ (5-in-1) Weather Station with My AcuRite® and Weather Underground.

To view your readings online on myacurite.com or from the My AcuRite® app, you must set up Weather Sharing in PC Connect. Once set up, create a My AcuRite® account (go to www.myacurite.com to create an account) or if you already have a My AcuRite® account, add the Device ID of the Indoor Display to your account.

To share with Weather Underground, you must have a My AcuRite® account and enable sharing to My AcuRite® in PC Connect, then register your AcuRite Weather Station (Personal Weather Station) with Weather Underground to obtain a Station ID and Password (Station Key).

 

How it works

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.

 

How to set up Weather Sharing

  1. Open the PC Connect software.

  2. From the Weather Sharing section, select the checkbox Share my weather data.

  3. From My AcuRite® Sharing, enter the 12-character Device ID of the Indoor Display. The Device ID is located on the back of the unit.

  5. Go to myacurite.com or download the My AcuRite® app from the App Store or Google Play to create a My AcuRite® account. If you have an account, add the PC Connect Display to your account. Once the Device ID is added to your account, you can set up sharing with Weather Underground.

  6. To share with Weather Underground, enter your Weather Underground (WU) Station ID and Password (Station Key) and select Share Now. Readings are sent in 12-minute intervals to Weather Underground.

  7. To share readings with Weather Underground as often as every 18 seconds, select Weather Underground RapidFire updates. Enabling Rapid Fire Updates may result in significantly more data being sent over your Internet connection.

  8. To prevent your computer from entering sleep mode, it's recommended to enable the Always-on Connection setting.

From the Status section, you can view the status of the sensor readings being sent to My AcuRite® and Weather Underground.
