AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Atlas Has Arrived
« Last post by nincehelser on Today at 11:17:06 PM »
Hello, I'm new here.I'm an Acurite refugee who has been waiting for the Atlas. Then found out that the Acurite forums have closed.

I was excited about the Atlas. I do like the new sensors for the UV index and light intensity. I was hoping it would be cheaper but with the options I want it would be $340 and I even already have the Access hub. Although the base price does sound good. Here's what I come up with:

Base price:            $150
HD display:            $100
Lightning Detector: $40
Wind Extension:      $30
Battery Pack:          $20
--------------------------------
Total:                     $340

I take it my current HD display or my current battery pack won't work with the Atlas. So I would have to buy new ones?

So anyway, I'll add it tomy list and start saving.  :-)

If you're trying to cut costs, you really don't need the HD display if you're willing to use myAcurite and/or wunderground for data viewing.

You are getting a bit of a price break on the HD display by getting it up-front.  I think the stand-alone price is something like $129.

Anyway, from the perspective of those who upgraded their SmartHUBs for $40, getting a fun new sensor for $150 isn't a bad deal.  It puts it within easier reach for those who can't afford an entirely new system.  It also gives them something they can "grow" into over time.

It is interesting that Amazon has not taken down the pre-order listing showing the Atlas + display + Access + lightning detector for $274.21. On Acurite's site, that configuration comes out to $389.96. And on top of that, Acurite answered a user submitted question today on the Amazon listing. I would think they would at least ask Amazon to remove the incorrect price.

I am almost tempted to order one to see how long it takes Amazon to cancel the order.

I'm not sure about this, but I don't think Acurite has control over those listings.  I think they sell hardware to Amazon at wholesale prices, and then Amazon sets their own retail prices.

I've no idea if Amazon will honor the listing.  Someone on Facebook says they have placed an order.

It would seem to me if you bought the wind extension you would not need the battery pack.  The base unit could be mounted lower where it would be easy to exchange batteries.

Not the way I have to mount it. It would still be out of reach.

I suppose if you really wanted, you could use both the wind extension and the remote battery pack (or AC adapter) and be measuring winds at 66 feet!
