    AcuLink Internet Bridge: Monitor Conditions Remotely Online & App 09150

    Rating:

    Weather seems to be a topic almost everyone is interested in, including myself. Although I'm no Meteorologist, I enjoy playing the part of a weatherman. I have wanted my own personal weather station for quite some time, however the cost of one was beyond my budget. A few years back I purchased a low grade inexpensive unit. My mother was still alive at the time. Her and I were both fascinated with the devise. After about one year the unit expired on me. I then purchased my first AcuRite station. It was more well constructed but I did experience issues with it after about one year. Thanks to AcuRite's wonderful customer support, they accommodated me and have kept me with a working station ever since. I installed my five in one unit a little over a year ago. It's endurance gave me the confinence I needed to become a local weather buff. I recently purchased the AcuRite Internet Bridge device and linked my station to Weather Underground. Now I have been the topic of gossip in my community. Everyone has paid my compliments on providing them with a local station to observe on the popular web site. Before now, people in my community got their readings from locations as much as 30 miles away. My wunderground.com page has received an overwhelming amount of hits just in its first months. I now have achieved something that everyone else can only dream of. I have constructed my very own in home TV weather channel. I have purchased a Roku video streamer, tuned it to Weather Underground, selected my local town, (which source comes from my personal weather station), and modulated to channel 10. I then added a HD radio to provide music for the audio and tied it in with the antenna system in my home. To me, AcuRite seems to want to become a more consumer friendly and affordable company to make owning a personal weather station become a reality for everyone. I strongly feel AcuRite will continue improving their products so they will match the performance of much more expensive personal weather stations. They are practically already there. I am hoping someday their products will support Rapid-Fire software to provide more frequent updates to Weather Underground.

    I love my product!!! I work out side and in Montana where we have a saying "If you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes and it will Change". Having a system in place that I can check weather directly at my home, I can adjust my work route to swing by the house and open or close windows and cover plants. I also like the fact that it tracks past weather conditions for future reference. I am very happy with how it works on my smart phone and tablet. The notifications are great although it takes a few tweaks to get use to the warnings that really matter. For example I had mine set to 34 degrees, it notified me and then it dropped quickly to 26 degrees so it notified me at every degree. I just set it to where I really was concerned and it works fine.

    We are using the AcuLink Internet Bridge with Remote Monitoring and the Tower Sensor for Temperature & Humidity to monitor the temperature in our server room. This past February we had a huge snow storm that started on Friday and didn't end until Sunday. It blocked the exit vent for the air conditioning unit in our server room, and subsequently, our server room overheated. When we came in Monday morning all of our servers were offline and the temperature in the room was ridiculous. We were lucky - everything came back online. But we are small IT team (2 members) and we needed to be able to not worry about our server room overheating again. For about $100 we got the Acu-link monitoring system and have been very pleased with it. We set notification alerts through the acu-link monitoring portal and have received text and emails from the system the few times our server room has reached warmer than normal temperatures. It's summertime now, so we don't have to worry too much about snow storms, but we get a lot of snow each year and it will be nice to not have to worry about our server room again.

    We use our Acu Rite 5 way station at a second home to keep tabs on the garden while we are away. We use tower sensors in our spa and attic to remote control our watering system and spa temperatures.

    I use my weather station on a daily basis. I love my station. It seems that the neighborhood has come to rely on me for the local daily weather readings, it's quite funny. I especially enjoy the alarm system letting you know when a storm is approaching or wind speeds are very high or that rain is falling. I've always been a weather buff and this station is even better than the smaller stations I own and have owned. As of 4/29/12 I was given as a gift the Professional Weather Center model #01500 and I love it. My only disappointment was that at the time of Superstorm Sandy, my sensor had failed (due to a manufacturer glitch) and I was waiting for the replacement sensor when the storm came. I really would have loved to see the wind speeds and rain count. To date, this is the best unit I have owned and look forward to getting another one. My Dad owns the next in line to my station which is easier to read and gives you hourly predictions of weather, that will be my next one. YOU TRULY MAKE QUALITY MERCHANDISE AND YOUR PHONE TECHS ARE ALWAYS VERY HELPFUL!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

    I am a official "Weather Spotter" for Cuyahoga County in Ohio, in a Cleveland suburb. I have aways loved weather and after much research, finally purchase a home weather station from Acu-Rite. All the readings have been right on when it comes to my two internal display units. The only issue I have had is with the "Bridge Unit", that I spent extra on, to be able to view local conditions at my home when I'm not there and to record the weather data. I'm still trying to attempt the best reading position for it, but the range really seems very limited. I always think it's funny when my friends and family trust me, more that the local news for weather updates on what is happening and is coming. I'm usually more accurate than the local forecasts, and having a constant reliable home forecast would be even better. Love the system. JImmy

    I have purchased 4 01055 weather stations, as I storm chase as a hobby, and am the assistant grounds manager at a resort in Alberta Canada. I bought one for our shop for obvious reasons, our job revolves around the weather and your product is very accurate for our purposes. I have one at home and have given, as gifts, the 2 remaining WX stations to my brother and good friend who also storm chase. Having a great product for a reasonable price are the reasons for the purchases and continued support of Acurite.

    Having the weather station outside is great for our family. For instance, my eight year old comes downstairs first thin every morning to see what the weather is and what it's going to do that day (so he can dress appropriately). It's nice that this is part of the routine. I also like that relatives (and I, when traveling) can always log on to Weather Underground to see what it's been doing weatherwise at our home. The one downside is that the software required to run in the background on our desktop often slows the computer down significantly, which causes us to occasionally need to reboot the machine to regain speed/control. That stinks. If that is unusual or not the way it should work, the directions that came with the station should have been more clear.

    I don't use it professionally. After several near misses with hurricanes in Florida, I've come to rely upon accurate weather measurements and predictions. Also, it's nice to know what the weather is at my home while I'm at work.

    Use the application through the app on my phone a couple of times a day. I helps me with useful data to open or close my greenhouse, how much rain water have we gotten to see if I need to irrigate. I have it send me warnings for wind and rain. I love the features it has. I am always showing it off how it works to friends.

    I have both the weather station and its console PLUS the internet bridge. Both work flawlessly. I have created a rather comprehensive spreadsheet that I use to display data and graphs of my weather statistics. I check my station often using my cell phone and the 'my backyard' dashboard website. The software that downloads data from the console could be improved. It works but it would be much nicer if it could run as a service and simply continuously download the data or do so automatically on a schedule.

    I use it to monitor the weather conditions at our home when we are away from home. I love that I can see all of the stats from my Android phone. I have a monitor in the garage and in the basement that I can also view on my phone, which is really helpful when we are away during the winter months.

    My Acurite Weather station is used daily. It is providing weather information in my home office and in my HAM shack for use with my amateur radio activities. It has been reliable, accurate and worked perfectly in every situation where its need was critical. I currently own and use 3 different Acurite weather packages with multiple displays. Very happy with all my Acurite weather devices and I highly recommend the company and its products.

    It keeps my wife busy while we are at our office. She can monitor what is going on weather wise at our house all day. She can see if we have had rain even while on vacation. Very happy with the product so far, I bought it for her birthday in May. The server went down for a day or so and you have thought the world came to an end , she uses it that often.

    I have found that my Acu-Link Bridge allows me to monitor the weather over my ranch while away on business. This makes it possible for me to direct the caretaker to make changes to protect the livestock in my absence. As I have said before; I find your products to be well engineered & constructed, for what I think is a very reasonable price and far below what your competition offers to the market. Keep up the good work and I will continue to recommend you to my friends and associates.

    I have my weather station installed at my cabin in the Sierras. With the online connection I can see what the weather is at the cabin. I also have temperature probes in both of the cabin buildings. With these I can do the following: 1. When temps get to freezing I can have my maintenance person go to the cabin and drain the water pipes to prevent bursting of pipes due to freezing. 2. Check the inside temps to see if renters have accidentally left the heaters on after their stay. This saves me propane. 3. Check the rainfall to see if I need to have an inspection of the property due to heavy downpours. 4. Check to see if the internet and power are working. If everything is working I can see the stats on my weatherstation. 5. Keep an eye on the local weather at my cabin. My vacation renters like to know.

    When I purchased my model 1525 five in one I was skeptical of the very reasonable price. I have had other weather stations with inconsistent data and not tough enough to withstand the ever changing weather in the Central Ohio open country. I am currently using Weather Display software to communicate with Weather Underground. I am also using the Acu-Link Driod application on my phone and several family and friends phones. They Love the fact that they can observe my station any time. The function most useful to others is the rain gauge. On Weather Underground I have been getting between 80 to 300 hits a month viewing my station ID# IOHORIEN2. In Fact The local Fox television station wrote me a letter saying they had noticed the quality of the data they see from my station on Weather Underground. I was asked if I would consider making my data available to the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS). The meteorologist emailed me the information on how to connect with MADIS. I am currently in the process of connecting to the MADIS data base.

    We have an Upscale outdoor Outlet Mall in Phoenix AZ and provide many amenities like umbrellas and misters to help keep our customers cool. Out Weather Station lets us keep informed of high winds so we can protect the umbrellas and the accurate temperature allows us to know when to activate our misters and if the relative humidity during Monsoon Storm season would render the misters ineffective. The weather station has been a great help to us. It is also very handy to be able to just check my iPhone to see the temp/wind speed, ect.

    After a year this is so acu-rite this is one of my best hobbies I have. photography,astronomy ,weather.the whole process is just great I have been a tester for accurate for the bridge an it is so great . to be able to check on weather conditions at home or when i go to visit my daughter in Nashville. the only thing I wish that it did do is to show me if I put the garage door down. It is so great to tell how much water my lawn received ,flowers. or when to do yard work. And it helps indoor as well. The indoor humidity will register the indoor humitity,Which I found out was more important than I thought ,helps me to keep the air in my home more healthy to breath and in the winter with a heat pump keeps me on target from drying out my furniture As they say you can't do anything about the weather but this. . is so acurite you can be ready for it. the 5 in one weather station is very accurate great hobby and helps you stay on top of yard work gardens ect. the warnings and alerts are Great I would suggest this to everyone on a score of one to ten I gave it a ten I would tell all my friends to buy it for sure.

    I received my AcuRite 1500 Weather station as a Christmas gift a few months ago. We were looking for a portable weather station that could be used on our motorhome during our winter stay in Florida. We have a wired weather station at our home in NY and have come to depend upon it for keeping track of the weather. We fabricated an adapter to mount the AcuRite 1500 on top of our motorhome allowing us to quickly and easily remove it when traveling. Additionally, the mounting had to allow for orienting the weather station in any direction as we stay in different parks when traveling. The wind speed and directions function are particularly useful to us in determining when to put the patio awning in. The Unit has worked flawlessly since receipt. We brought the display unit inside our home when we returned to NY for the summer leaving the sensor unit on top of the motorhome. Their is no problem picking up the signal from the sensor unit on the motorhome. We are pleased with the product. Perhaps we could hook up a wireless bridge to the internet if it was compatible with a cellular based data modem such as the MiFi 2200. Something we may investigate.

    I really like my Acurite weather station for the live weather readings. I'm employed in farming and the temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction are important to know when i'm planning a spray application on my crops. it's also important to know the amounts of rainfall we recieve to plan irregation if needed.
