The AcuRite 01015 Complete Wireless Weather Station with Weather Ticker with Integrated Multi-Sensor collects outside weather data and sends the data via wireless signal to the included display console via a low-power radio frequency. This weather center has been designed to be easy to install and use, without compromising any of the professional weather tracking features you want.
The Integrated Multi-Sensor is completely wireless and contains a self-emptying rain collector for measuring rainfall, temperature/humidity sensor, anemometer, and a wind vane. The anemometer measures wind speed, and the wind vane measures wind direction. The Integrated Multi-Sensor is battery powered and features a solar panel for running an internal aspirating fan. The internal fan will assist in drawing ambient air through to reduce the heating effects of solar radiation, resulting in a more accurate air temperature measurement.
The sleek display console houses a liquid crystal display (LCD) which will calculate and display all the weather data received from the Integrated Multi-Sensor outside. The display console can be powered via the included AC adapter, or it can be powered with batteries. The display console has professional weather features such as alarms for high and low conditions, daily/all-time record highs and lows, and an area for displaying a multitude of extra weather information - the Weather Ticker.
The Weather Ticker display area will display extra weather details that are relevant to the current and upcoming conditions. For example, when a new high temperature is recorded, the weather ticker will display "NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORDED: 92 F."
The AcuRite 01015 uses patented Self-Calibrating Technology to provide a 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. One-year limited warranty. It's more than accurate, it's AcuRite.
Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab shown above. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.
