I received the below mentioned complimentary product for the purpose of this review. All opinions and thoughts are 100% my own.
We bought our new home December of 2015. It is hard to beleive that it will be a year that we have owned our dream home in a few weeks. I have a ton of medical issues and the humidity plays a big role in how I feel. I was thrilled when the opportunity arose to review the AcuRite Rain Gauge with Indoor/Outdoor Temperature. I know how to keep the indoor temperature and humidity at a optimal range but it is the outside that I need to know what the current readings are.
Chaney Instrument Co. is a subsidiary of the Primex Family of Companies (PFOC), a family-owned business headquartered in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Founded in 1943, Chaney Instrument Co. and its AcuRite brand have earned a long-standing reputation as the leader in precision time, temperature and weather products.
In 1987, Chaney Instrument Company became part of the Primex Family of Companies. After the acquisition, it quickly grew to become one of the largest and most trusted manufacturers of quartz clock movements in the USA, ultimately achieving an annual output of over 10 million clock motors. Never resting on laurels, Chaney continued its focus on innovation and technology. This led to (among other noteworthy accomplishments) its pioneering a successful line of analog atomic clocks in 1998. These revolutionary products continue to offer consumers unmatched convenience and performance by automatically setting themselves and maintaining accuracy to the split-second.
More recently, Chaney has firmly established its AcuRite brand as the #1 top-selling weather product line in North America. The AcuRite brand is known for its ease of use, reliable quality, precision accuracy and knowledgeable support team. AcuRite is a consumer favorite at major retailers like Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Costco, Kohl’s, Amazon and more. AcuRite weather products deliver dependable weather forecasts and precision measurements of outdoor and indoor environmental conditions. In contrast to the TV news or weather websites (which typically rely on regional data taken many miles away from your home), AcuRite provides actionable, personalized weather information, specific to your own back yard.
AcuRite also offers useful technology for the kitchen. Boasting a precision line of thermometers, scales and timers, consumers can benefit from safely-stored, properly-prepared, and delicious food.
Finally, keeping up with today’s mobile technology, AcuRite augmented many of its leading weather products with internet-connectivity. This allows users to access their AcuRite sensor data from anywhere in the world using a smartphone, computer or tablet. The technology also allows users to customize alerts and receive notifications when conditions change and potentially need attention.
Thanks to AcuRite, you can monitor the places you care about most, stay informed of changing conditions, and plan the day with confidence.
This could not have been easier to set up and the instructions were very easy to follow. We have soya sod as the grass in our yard. Anyone who knows about soya grass knows that it needs a lot of water to stay a beautiful green color and plush growth. I love our yard as it feels like you are walking on a pillow. How much rain we get plays a big part in how much we need to water the lawn. We pay for water now so this is a big deal for us. With the state of the economy, We need to cut costs every way we can. Up until I received the AcuRite Rain Gauge with Indoor/Outdoor Temperature, I never knew just how much rain we received and now I do. Some of the features I love about the AcuRite Rain Gauge with Indoor/Outdoor Temperature product are:
A programmable rain alarm that alerts you when your preset rainfall amounts are reached, potentially warning you of flood conditions or when to turn off the sprinkler in your lawn or garden. Its Oncoming Storm Alert indicates a drop in barometric pressure and the chance of approaching storms. Displays rainfall records for the previous day, current week, month, year and previous year. Also shows daily and all-time high and low records for temperature and humidity. Additional features include an Intelli-Time clock that comes pre-programmed to the correct time and date and automatically updates for Daylight Saving Time. All you need to do is set your time zone.
