Placement for Maximum Accuracy
AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper
placement of both the display unit and outdoor sensor are critical to the
accuracy and performance of this product.
Display Unit Placement
Place the display unit in a dry area free of dirt and dust.
Display unit stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable.
Outdoor Sensor Placement
Sensor must be placed outside to observe outdoor conditions.
Sensor is water resistant and is designed for general outdoor
use, however, to extend its life place the sensor in an area
protected from direct weather elements.
Hang the sensor using the integrated hang holes or hanger, or
by using string (not included) to hang it from a suitable location,
like a well covered tree branch. The best location is 4 to 8 feet
above the ground with permanent shade and plenty of fresh air
to circulate around the sensor.
Important Placement Guidelines
• To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place units out of direct
sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents.
• Display unit and outdoor sensor must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other.
• To maximize wireless range, place units away from large metallic items, thick
walls, metal surfaces, or other objects that may limit wireless communication.
• To prevent wireless interference, place both units at least 3 ft (.9 m) away
from electronic devices (TV, computer, microwave, radio, etc.).
Setup is Complete
The sensor will now synchronize with the display unit. It may take a few
minutes for synchronization to complete. Please refer to the troubleshooting
section of this manual if anything appears to be functioning improperly.
