Why is My PC Connect Display Offline?


A PC Connect display requires a computer with Windows version 8 or higher and the PC Connect software v2.0.4 open and running for the Iris® (5-in-1) sensor to stream online. If the PC Connect Display is offline on My AcuRite®, you will need to check the PC Connect connection on the computer by following the steps below. 

  1.  Click Here if You Have Not Installed PC Connect v2.0.4  Please confirm Windows is up-to-date and that all previous versions of PC Connect have been uninstalled from the computer before installing v2.0.4.
  2. Confirm the PC Connect Display is maintaining 4 bars of signal strength. If the display shows less than 4 bars of signal strength, relocate the display 3ft away from other electronics, including the computer and router. Click Here to Review Wireless Signal Reception.
  3. Before you connect the Indoor Display Models 01025, 01035, 01036, 01525, or 02032/06037 to your computer, you will need to set the indoor display to Mode 3. From the SET menu on the Indoor Display, cycle through the settings to USB MODE or PC CONNECT MODE and then use the up arrow to set it to mode 3 and press SET to save the setting.
  4. Open PC Connect 2.0.4 Software to confirm under Status shows the following (with a current timestamp for the last data received).  Click Here to Review PC Connect Status Meanings pc_connect.png
  5. Confirm the Last Data Received timestamp continues to update every 60 seconds.
  6. Confirm there is not an available sensor on your MyAcuRite account. When changing the batteries on the outdoor sensor, the connection may be lost, and the sensor will need to be re-added to the dashboard. Click Here to Review the Steps to Add a Sensor to the Dashboard
