My AcuRite reading gaps may occur if a sensor is offline due to a loss of power or its wireless signal to a Connection Device has been lost, or a Connection Device’s network connection is not stable.
Your sensors are listed in the tab of the AcuRite Connection Device they have been added to. The readings displayed are the last sensor readings sent from the Connection Device to My AcuRite. The reading icons provide a visual indicator to easily identify the type of reading. The readings are displayed in the time zone of the Postal Code set in AcuRite Connection Device.
How often are sensor readings sent to My AcuRite?
The frequency that sensor readings are sent to My AcuRite (upload frequency) is dependent upon the type of AcuRite Connection Device.
The latest sensor reading is displayed on your Dashboard and all readings received are displayed in Charts & Details in 5 minute intervals.
AcuRite Access - the most recent received readings are uploaded to My AcuRite every 5 minutes.
Calculated reading types, such as Dew Point and Feels Like, are calculated locally by the device and uploaded to My AcuRite. Reading calculations are based on all readings taken by each sensor during each 5 minute interval.
Accumulated reading types, including rainfall,
When an AcuRite Access device is operating on battery backup power or it does not have a network (internet) connection, its readings are not sent (uploaded) to My AcuRite or Weather Underground. During battery backup use or when it does not have a network (internet) connection, the device continues to receive readings and stores up to 12 hours of readings (logged readings) in its local memory. All logged readings are sent (uploaded) to My AcuRite when its AC power or network (internet) connection is restored. Logged readings are not sent to Weather Underground.
AcuRite smartHUB - readings are uploaded to My AcuRite at the time a reading is received from an AcuRite outdoor or indoor monitoring device (sensor) by the smartHUB. The upload frequency is based on each sensors' reading frequency.
PC Connect (for use with a 5-in-1 weather station only) - the readings of a 5-in-1 Weather Station are sent to PC Connect by way of the USB connection between the Indoor Display and your computer. Readings are uploaded to My AcuRite over your computer's network (internet) connection. For PC Connect use, My AcuRite sharing must be enabled in the PC Connect software. The upload frequency is based on each of the 5-in-1 sensors' reading frequency.
