The AcuRite 01021M Wireless Color Digital Rain Gauge features a self-emptying rain collector that wirelessly transmits rainfall, outdoor temperature, outdoor humidity, barometric pressure and lightning detection data to the indoor color display. The AcuRite 01021M Wireless Color Digital Rain Gauge displays temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius formats, the time with the month and day. Know how much water you are using to water your lawn, or find out what the latest storm brought to your home.

The lightning detector provides outdoor temperature and humidity, along with visual and audible alert warnings for cloud-to-ground, cloud-to-cloud and intra-cloud lightning strikes within a 25 mile range. The lightning detector features enhanced interference rejection capabilities to prevent false lightning detection, along with a history of strikes detected today, current week and month. Perfect for gardeners and parents needing to know when to move the kids indoors.

5 stars Practical,feature rich and easy to use.
Without going all out and getting a full weather station this is my idea of an excellent substitute. Easy to set up and use. It has enough features to provide you with very important and detailed information. I've been using this item for a week and a half in both dry and hot plus serious T-storms all sensors and the display work great. Well-lighted and optional alerts and records keep you informed. I'd recommend it!

5 stars Performs excellent. Exceeded expectations. Easy to set up.
The weather station is working flawlessly. It has been fun and interesting to follow the weather from data collected at my house location. The monitor unit is easy to read. And set up was a breeze. Good product.

I bought the unit for my son who was not happy with the first selection as I didn't hook up with his cell as advertised(he is computer savvy) so he traded it back in for the model you are showing here. You might contact him at [email protected]

5 stars It works
This review is based on only four days of operation. My wife is thrilled with it so far. Set up was easy, pretty much just install the batteries and mount the sensors. The lightning sensor recorded distant strikes that we didn't see. I guess that would be nice if you need that information. The temperature sensor benefits from a shaded location as stated in the instructions. The display is much more usable when it's powered from an outlet instead of the batteries.
