Customer Questions & Answers

Does it come with batteries?

Asked by: johntc
As I recall, no. AcuRite strongly recommends the use of lithium non-rechargeable batteries in cold climates. I recommend them everywhere. They last up to 20 times longer than regular alkaline batteries!!!

What is the transmitting range between base & rain collector?

I ask because there seems to be a myriad of model 899...s, but some are listed as a transmitting range of 30 meters (100 ft) and some at 100 meters (330 ft).
Asked by: FoolBr1
Approx. 100 feet, or less.

Does the unit show indoor and outdoor temperatures?

Asked by: kennykenny
No, it does not measure temperature at all. It is just a rain gauge.

Digital Rain Gauge with Wireless Self-Emptying Rain Collector is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 111.

I like the different modes for capturing event, day, week, event A and B. When it works it seems to be fairly accurate. I have had it now for 2 months and unfortunately it stopped working in the middle of a rain storm. I checked the batteries and they are all good. I removed the batteries from the base unit, reinserted them and it appears to be working again. The problem is, I lost my season to date total. Call me nerdy but I like tracking rainfall totals to make my own assessment about the drought we have been in. Bottom line: If you don't care about season to date numbers, this is a great rain gauge. If you do care about it, this gauge is not reliable enough to hold the number for a full year, (didn't even last 2 months)

The rain gauge only registered about half of the rainfall amount (using the calibration instructions) and the adjustment screws have only 3 turns, not enough to correctly calibrate. Now after full adjustment, the gauge only registers about two thirds of the rainfall amount. A complete waste of money as it is unusable. Nobody should purchase this product, as it's daylight robbery.

Working fine, the only problem is they say not to be left outside in freezing weather, that's crazy, mine is on rain gutter. We will see, if so its junk. My old one a LaCrosse is over 15 years old never thought to bring inside in winter

This product was very easy to set up and use right after installing the batteries. It did require calibration, but the instructions were very easy to follow. Waiting for the next storm to determine how accurate it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A urine rain gauge I really enjoy knowing how much it rained overnight or during a certain period of time. I did bring it in during the heavy snow. The collector just got full of snow and froze. Otherwise I really like it.

Wish that the alarms for the precipitation would trigger at 1/2" of rain to be CA compliant with the SWPPP programs. The alarms can not be set to that level currently.
