Connecting to MyAcurite
« on: January 14, 2022, 10:13:29 AM »
Greetings,
I have an Acurite #01516 with a 5 in 1 sensor.  It's connected to my home network, receives data from the 5 in 1 sensor, and is connected to Weather Underground.  However, I cannot seem to get it to connect to the MyAcurite mobile app or either the PC Connect app or the My Acurite website.  I'm using the correct device ID, but none of these apps will detect the device.  I've removed the batteries and power cord and reset the device 2 or 3 times.  What am I missing here?
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
Steve

Is this the display that came with your bundle?  If so, it’s not a “Direct” connect to Wi-Fi device and only sends data to Weather Underground.

Thank you.  I guess that explains it.  I would have to spend another $99 to get the Direct to Wi-Fi Display to replace the one that came with the unit.
I appreciate the response.

Or purchase an Access where you can monitor up to seven compatible sensors(Iris is compatible) on MyAcuRite.
