Rain Gauge Installation • To ensure accurate rain measurement, the rain gauge MUST be placed on a flat, level surface. • Ensure the rain gauge is not placed in a low spot that could become flooded or in an area where there are obstructions above it. DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT...
Placement for Maximum Accuracy AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper placement of the display, 5-in-1 sensor and lightning sensor is critical to the accuracy and performance of this product. Display Placement Place the display in a dry area free of dirt and dust. Display stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable.
Lightning Sensor Installation Guidelines False Detection This sensor features advanced technology to distinguish between lightning strikes and interference, however in rare cases the sensor may "false detect" lightning activity due to interference. In these situations, verify there is no lightning in the area and then relocate the sensor. If the false detections persist, identify and relocate the source of interference or relocate the sensor.
