Has Tropical Storm Andrea and recent meteorological events in Oklahoma got you all jazzed up about the climate? You, too, can keep track of the weather with Acu-Link by AcuRite, a platform for remotely monitoring environmental conditions.

It lets users observe indoor and outdoor conditions, including temperature, humidity, wind, rainfall, water temperature, atmospheric pressure and forecasts, using one or more sensors placed in locations of your choise. You can share the data you collected online via an Internet bridge, which connects to your router. The information is sent to the Acu-Link servers in the Cloud.

Access the data using your free iPhone or Android app, or go online at acu-link.com.

The Professional Weather Center with Acu-Link Remote Monitoring is $199.95, and includes the bridge, a sensor and a tabletop display. You can add sensors, which cost anywhere from $7.50 to $65, depending on type. The kit and accessories are available at AcuRite.com
