Cross-platform solution allows for wide range of weather monitoring sensors

Personal weather reporting instrument purveyor AcuRite has announced the release of its Acu-Link platform for remote monitoring of environmental conditions. Acu-Link enables users to observe indoor and outdoor elements including temperature, humidity, wind, rainfall, water temperature, atmospheric pressure, the weather forecast and more. The Acu-Link platform records data using precision sensors positioned in the local environment, and then transmits sensor data over the Internet, where it can be viewed from a PC, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

Acu-Link data can be monitored privately, or be reported to online weather communities. The Acu-Link online portal and app feature a customizable dashboard and intuitive user interface, designed for trend observation, graphic charting, and historical data storage. The app can notify users of changing conditions by email or text message using Acu-Link's programmable alerts -- which can be triggered by events like excessive rainfall, oncoming storms, frost warning, or high wind speed.

Acu-Link is accessible at, and can be downloaded as a free app for Apple iOS and Android mobile devices. The Acu-Link Internet bridge can receive data for up to three AcuRite sensors simultaneously. A variety of Acu-Link compatible sensors are available, all featuring a 330-foot wireless range, durable weather-resistant construction and strong signal penetration for transmission through walls and long distances. AcuRite's 5-in-1 sensor incorporates five features into one sensor, including temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction.

AcuRite's Professional Weather Center with Acu-Link Remote Monitoring includes the bridge, 5-in-1 sensor and tabletop display, and retails for $200. The Acu-Link Internet Bridge by itself retails for $80, with add-on sensors ranging from $7.50 to $65.
