Make Home MOnitoring Easy & Fun with My AcuRite

As a homeowner, there is usually a lot on our mind, ranging from home improvements to being concerned with potential issues in our home. Not only that, but we have to be concerned about conditions in our house for the comfort of our family, and making sure nothing scary starts growing because of humidity (sorry mold, we don’t like you outside our blue cheese). When we first moved into our home, we were constantly fighting mold from our drains, due to high humidity in our home and poor window sealings that were installed by the original builder. While we did eventually get it under controller with new windows and multiple dehumidifiers, it doesn’t mean that we still don’t constantly monitor our home. Along with humidity and indoor temperatures, we have to be concerned about flooding outdoors, thunderstorms with our large trees, and of course, very hot temperatures that could be life threatening for our Alaskan Malamutes.  For people like us who have a variety of reasons to want to monitor the weather, we were excited when AcuRite announced their new My AcuRite Smart Home Environmental Monitoring System.

Want to know what makes the My AcuRite Smart Home Environmental Monitoring System so cool? It pretty much works like a little home assistant, giving you on demand environment information sent directly to your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Using a powerful, cloud based system platform and AcuRite’s proven environment measuring technology, they have created a completely intuitive, easy to navigate app and website that lets people get amazing information to make planning easier. Some of the benefits include:

  • Customized Alerts sent to your email or phone
  • Minimizing potential water damage with leak detection
  • Monitoring air quality to prevent mold & allergens with high indoor temperature & humidity alerts
  • Protect musical instruments & valuables from humidity
  • Prevent frozen pipes
  • Prevent flood damage from excessive rainfall alerts
  • Better preparation for and prevention of wind-related damage
  • Protect flowers & plants from high/low temperatures or drought conditions
  • Monitor pool, hot tub, pond, fountain or aquarium temperatures
  • Monitor temperatures in your home for better sleeping conditions
  • Planning outdoor activity
  • Comfortable conditions for pets, especially reptiles
  • Better Home Air Conditioning & Heating Efficiency with in-home monitoring

Best of all, it is very easy to set up the My AcuRite Smart Home Environmental Monitoring System and associated equipment, allowing you to have an amazing home weather setup perfect for hobbyists , weather enthusiasts, or business owners wanting to have the most accurate information possible.

What we like the most is that this system works great with up to 10 indoor and outdoor monitoring sensors, making it very easy to connect with your current AcuRite system. We are currently testing this new system with the AcuRite 5 in 1 Pro Weather Sensor, allowing us to get the most accurate weather and information to keep our home and us as comfortable as possible. Adding this unit to our current system gives us the ability to measure temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and even rainfall. As well, it has two solar panels to power the internal fan to maximize ambient temperature accuracy for all hours of the day. It also transmits data every 18 to 36 seconds, giving us very accurate and to-the-moment information. You can learn more about the AcuRite 5 in 1 Pro Weather Sensor here!

    This is some pretty heavy equipment, I wouldn’t mind having this at all and knowing the details in the weather thats heading your way, pays for this.

    As time goes on and the weather gets more unpredictable, as well as the state of the world, this seems like a beneficial thing to have.

    This sounds like a terrific system! While I live in an apartment and not a house, I would definitely be interested in having this system whenever I do get a house.

    I love what this system can do. So many times we forget to turn the light on at the well so the pipes won’t freeze or we differ on what the temp is that they will freeze. This along with everything else is great and would be worth the expense. Thanks for sharing, going to look into it.

    The AcuRite Smart Home Environmental Monitoring System is a must have for any homeowner. Just ask someone who had their washing machine hose break and flood the basement.
