I don’t know if you have been paying any attention as to what is going on in our world. If not, I suggest you turn on your local news or weather stations and watch what is happening around you.
Many of us have been experiencing some wicked weather that has taken over our cities. Actually, it’s been beyond mind blowing seeing all the devastation left behind from some of the storms, rainfalls and tornados! The heavy rain pours have been a record high and flooding has occurred in many states.
It’s been so bad with floods that many states have declared a “State Of Emergency”! Even here in Michigan the rain pour has set a record high. My sister has been stating for years that we need to have an emergency preparation kit on hand along with stocking up with water and food.
That’s why when I heard about ACU-RITE, I was so ready to reach out to them to see if I could receive a few of their products to have on hand just in case we needed a few things to help us stay tune to what’s happening around us when the weather gets wicked again and when we lose power.
ACU-Rite was kind enough to send us the Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station with Wind, Rain & BONUS Weather Radio / Flashlight.
Now let me say, seeing this system at first hand definitely piqued my interest as to how it would work.
The Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station with Wind, Rain & BONUS Weather Radio / Flashlight is just as fascinating as it sounds. We can now keep up with weather predictions and pinpoint accuracy right from our own backyard. I know you are wondering how do this system works: The AcuRite Professional Weather Station uses patented Self-Calibrating Technology to provide your personal forecast of 12 to 24-hour weather conditions. Self-Calibrating Forecasting is generated from weather data measured by a sensor in your yard – giving you the most accurate forecast available for your exact location.
It took me no time to set up the The AcuRite Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station. It’s very easy to set up just add your batteries or you have the option to use a plug-in cord that comes with this system. Before long the station was reporting our current weather conditions, including indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and rainfall, all visible on a vivid color display.
I plan on hanging mine in my office since I spend so much time in that room the most. I love how within minutes the weather station was displaying temperatures so fast once powered on. I also like how bold and colorful the display show and how it informed me about the humidity in my home, that’s an important factor for me since both grandkids have asthma and sometimes the hot humidity can trigger an attack. This way I’ll also know when to turn on my dehumidifier so it’ll help the humidity air to flow better in my home.
Included with the Pro 5-in-1 Weather Station are two other small sensors, both sensors automatically toggles between monitoring temperature and humidity data in the room. Both wired sensors feature an extra-long cord to help you install anywhere that may be hard to reach!
Now I can’t wait to have the 5-in-1 weather sensor below mounted. I don’t have a place right now to mount it because after reading the instructions it is suggested to install at least 33 feet high for the most accurate wind readings. I don’t have anything around me right now that high to mount on since I live in an apartment building. Soon all that will change since we will be moving closer to one of my sisters farm properties next year.
I have seen many of these 5-in-1 weather sensor mounted but I really never understood their purpose until now.
This continuous-streaming weather ticker keeps you informed of weather alerts. Indoor/outdoor temperature, wind direction, speed, chill, barometric pressure and humidity readings keep track of weather trends and displays a “feels like” temperature so you’ll know if you should grab a jacket before heading out. 12-24-hour future forecast is reliably accurate.
The self-emptying rain gauge is precise and mess-free. Self-calibrating for altitude. Icons for 14 different weather conditions. Includes AC power adapter. PC connectivity allows you to download weather data to your computer or smart device and view remotely. That’s because My Acu-Rite is a cloud-based software and connected device platform that delivers information and alerts about your local weather conditions. In order to setup the My Acu-Rite account you can visit their Knowledge Base to help get assistance in creating your account.
You need six AA batteries (not included) when you’re not using the AC power adapter. Sensor unit requires four AA alkaline or lithium batteries which are not included too. You can also check out the Kestrel Instruments weather meter, this is another great weather system that measures the weather good!
Last we have another one of my favorites and yes this flashlight radio will definitely be put to use too. It’s called the Flashlight with NOAA Weather Radio
Acu-rite Weather Alert Radio w/ built in Flashlight & Hand crank radio will be a lifesaver and here’s how: The Acu-rite Weather Alert Radio w/ built in Flashlight & Hand crank radio will keep you and your family up-to-date on all weather alerts and weather information right in the palm of your hand.
