Plan the day with confidence with your own weather and weather prediction information with pinpoint accuracy right from your own backyard. The AcuRite 01525 Complete Wireless Weather Station with Weather Ticker 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. The PC Connect feature transmits your weather data to your PC.

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 bold, easy to read AcuRite 01525 LCD screen includes indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, wind chill, rainfall, barometric pressure, a clock, calendar and more. Personalize the Weather Ticker to stream the information you want. Custom programmable alarms will alert you when weather conditions change. The display stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable. The patent-pending wireless outdoor sensor features five different technologies in one easy-to-mount unit that combines thermometer, hygrometer, wind speed anemometer, wind direction vane and a self-emptying rain gauge. 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.

5 stars One week in
I'm enjoying having so much more weather info. Wind speed and direction is handy and wind chill helps me decide outdoor wear. Finally got some rain in the gauge to know it's working. Really like that I can mount it and plug it in or carry it to my evening chair keep up with current changes when fronts hit us. Should have got one of these years ago.

4 stars Acuite 5 in 1 Weather Station
Setup was effortless and worked out of the box first time. No elaborate procedures for setup required. Advertisement indicated that there was a remote battery status. There is none. The readout is dark and sometimes hard to read. Ticker is very had to read if scroll is set to fast.

5 stars Best gift ever
I gave this as a gift to my son in law who likes electronics. He has been playing with the system since Christmas. He set it up the same day and has been keeping us updated on the weather. He likes it most because he can monitor what happens in his city, while away from home. This has been one of the best gifts he has received so I was told. I also gave one to My son, and now my husband wants one.

5 stars Love the "Turn-key" setup
Remove the rain gauge restraint, plunk in the batteries,and it is in operation. Follow the on screen prompts and show accurate measurements within minutes. Ticker somewhat hard to read at angles. I will have to contact support for help in downloading info to Win8.1 after holidays.

5 stars Install a piece of cake
Installed it yesterday in 10 Minutes. Still testing the unit for accuracy and reliability. I would have purchased a higher rated unit but selected this on due to cost. Hope it turns out I made the right call.
