Acu-Rite Model 01010W

Very pleased so far with this station. Spot on with the Weather Exchange and the Weather Channel for my area. Display console full of info and the outside instrument cluster performing like a champ. Mounted 8' up on a heavy duty pole and receiving full signal from outside.   :grin:

Continue to be amazed by the accuracy of this little station. Spot on with local weather stations and spot on with other amateur weather hobbyists with much more expensive stations. A quick review I did on youtube.

I have the same station bought last month (tax refund)  and I concur it is very accurate.  For about a hundred dollars this station surprised me.  I just wish they sold the units separately so if you wanted another display you could get one or if your outside unit got trashed also.  All in all a good unit.  Time will tell.  The main thing I wonder about is battery life.  So far, so good.

Glad to hear your liking your 1010W!

Additional and/or upgraded display units can be purchased through AcuRite.com, as well as replacement sensors.

Battery life is at least 1 year in most environments, I got about 14 months on my early model test unit.

anyone have any suggestions for the humidity indication reading 1% all of the time? All other functions are working properly on this unit. Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

Are you in an area with extremely low humidity?  Just curious, as my outdoor sensor seemed to drop from 15% to nothing (don't remember if it was 0% or 1%) last month when we were having an unusual dry spell here in the northeast.  It was sort of like the sensor was going out of range on the low side, and has been reading normally again since the humidity returned to normal for this area.

I suspect that you may be making a warranty claim, but you may want to peruse AcuRite's support forums first to see if anyone else reported the problem you're experiencing.....

re the humidity at 1% -> did you get rain with strong wind?
it could be that the sensor got wet (and then over read ends up being reported as 1%)

Like I posted earlier I have the 01010 station up and running.  My mother in law lives right next door and I saw this on Flea-bay and was wondering if it would read off the Temperature transmitter of my station.  Rhino if you know let me know what receivers are compatible with reading temp , humidity, wind, etc that may be Accurite.
Thanks.  What I found....ACURITE 00604RX temperature receiver and it is only five dollars.  Thanks.

That's a transmitter not a receiver. It transmits the signal to your display or bridge.
