” button to confirm a value.
5. Next, press the “
” button to activate the alarm. The alarm ON
indicator will highlight on the display.
Alarm is now programmed and turned on.
“Learning Mode”
Self-Calibrating Forecasting use a unique algorithm to analyze changes in
pressure and temperature over a time period (called Learning Mode) to
determine your altitude. After 14 days, the Learning Mode icon disappears
from the display screen. At this point, the self-calibrated pressure is tuned in to
your location and the unit is ready for superior weather prediction.
Barometric Pressure
Subtle variations in barometric pressure greatly affect the weather. This
weather forecaster displays the current pressure, direction it's trending
(FALLING, STEADY, or RISING) and a pressure chart. The chart tracks and
displays the change in pressure so you can monitor the rate of change over
time.
Rainfall Event
The rainfall feature tracks rain accumulation over all-time, the current month,
and current rainfall event. Current event clears when no rain registers for 8
hours OR no rain registers for 1 hour and pressure rises by .03inhg or more.
Programmable Weather Alarms
Each Selectable Weather Category features an alarm option. When an alarm
sounds, the display unit emits an audible beeping and flashes the affected
category, its alarm settings, and any other relevant data.
Some alarms can be customized to alert you when your programmed value is
reached. Alarms include: outdoor temperature, outdoor humidity, wind speed,
heat index, dew point, wind chill, indoor temperature and indoor humidity.
The rain alarm does not require a preset numerical value, but instead sounds
as soon as rain is recorded. Similarly, the storm alarm sounds when a large
atmospheric pressure drop occurs, which usually indicates an oncoming storm.
To set or adjust an alarm value:
Press and hold “
”
To activate or deactivate an alarm:
Press “

Possible Solution
• Relocate the display unit and/or the 5-in-1
sensor. The units must be within 330ft
(100m) of each other.
• Make sure both units are placed at least 3
feet (.9m) away from electronics that may
interfere with the wireless communication
(such as TVs, microwaves, computers, etc).
• Use standard alkaline batteries (or lithium
batteries in sensor when temperature is
below -4ºF/-20ºC). Do not use heavy duty
or rechargeable batteries. NOTE: It may
take up to 20 minutes for display unit and
sensor to synchronize after batteries are
replaced.
• Synchronize the units:
1. Bring both the sensor and display unit
indoors and remove at least one battery
from each.
2. Reinstall the battery in the outdoor
sensor.
3. Reinstall battery into the display unit.
4. Let the units sit within a couple feet of
each other for about 20 minutes to gain a
strong connection.
Outdoor

is not showing current conditions.
14
Problem
Possible Solution
Inaccurate forecast
• Has Learning Mode icon disappeared from
the display unit? Learning Mode must be
completed before the forecast and pressure
will be accurate.
• Allow the unit to run continuously for 33
days. Battery removal or resetting the
display unit restarts Learning Mode. After
14 days, forecast should be fairly accurate,
however Learning Mode continues to
calibrate for a total of 33 days.
Inaccurate
temperature or
humidity
• Make sure both the display unit and 5-in-1
sensor are placed out of direct sunlight and
away from any heat sources or vents (see
page 10 ).
• Make sure both units are positioned away
from moisture sources (see page 10 ).
• Make sure 5-in-1 sensor is mounted at least
5ft off of the ground.
• Calibrate indoor and outdoor temperature
and humidity (see page 17).
(Continued from p.14)
No rainfall
• Check to ensure the rain gauge stabilizer
(plastic tab) has been removed from the
bottom of the sensor (see page 6).
• Clear debris, such as leaves, out of the rain
collector funnel and debris screen.
• See Calibrate the Rain Gauge on page 17.
Inaccurate wind
readings
• What is wind reading being compared to?
Pro weather stations are typically mounted
at 30ft high or more. Make sure to
compare data using a sensor positioned at
the same mounting height.
• Check location of the sensor. Ensure itʼs
mounted a minimum of 5ft in the air with no
obstructions around it (within several feet).
•Ensure wind cups are spinning freely. If they
hesitate or stop try lubricating with
graphite powder or WD-40.
If your AcuRite product does not operate properly after trying
the troubleshooting steps, visit www.AcuRite.com or call

Care & Maintenance
Display Unit Care
Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use caustic cleaners or abrasives. Keep
away from dust, dirt and moisture. Clean ventilation ports regularly with a
gentle puff of air.
5-in-1 Sensor Care
Clean The Sensor
Clean with a soft damp cloth. Do not use caustic cleaners or abrasives that will
mar the polished surfaces of the rain collection funnel or the solar cell.
Scratches will result in decreased performance and reliability.
Insect Prevention
Insects may cause obstructions and interrupt data by nesting in or on the 5-in-1
sensor. To limit this problem, spray sensor with a household insect repellent.
Consult the insect repellent instructions prior to use.
Snow & Freezing Weather
The 5-in-1 sensor will not be damaged by freezing conditions. NOTE: If the rain
collector cup fills with snow and then melts, it will register as rain on the
display unit.
Clean The Rain Collector Cup
Remove and empty rain collector debris filter. The debris filter is located in the
rain collector funnel. Remove from the top by gently squeezing and pulling out.
Clean the Wind Vane & Anemometer
Remove foreign matter from the outside of the sensor for free movement of the
wind vane and anemometer. If needed, use a small amount of spray lubricant,
clear silicone or graphite powder on the anemometer for improved movement.
Calibration
Calibrate Temperature & Humidity
The indoor / outdoor temperature and humidity readings can be calibrated on
the display unit to improve accuracy. Calibration improves accuracy when
5-in-1 sensor placement or environmental factors impact your data accuracy.
1. Choose the weather category you wish to calibrate by pressing the up or
down arrow buttons until the category is displayed on the Selectable
Category part of the display unit.
16
2. Press AND HOLD the up and down arrow buttons and the “ ” button all
at the same time for 15-20 seconds.
• The display unit beeps, and all display data is hidden except for the
value being calibrated.
• “CAL” (calibrate) and arrows appear next to the value being calibrated.
3. Press the up or down arrow buttons to calibrate the data value higher or
lower from the actual reading.
4. Press the “
” button to confirm the calibration
adjustment. Note: The “CAL” icon remains
illuminated next to calibrated values.
Calibrate the Rain Gauge
The rain gauge on the 5-in-1 sensor can be calibrated to improve accuracy.
Items Needed: 5-in-1 sensor, display unit, plastic cup, pin, screw driver
1. First, ensure 5-in-1 sensor is perfectly level using built-in bubble level.
2. Place display unit close so you can monitor it during calibration.
3. Make a pin hole in the bottom of a plastic cup. Hold the cup over the rain
gauge and fill it with exactly 1 cup (8oz.) of water, allowing the water to
drip into the rain gauge. You should hear the internal buckets tip and see
water drain through the rain gauge.
4. A few seconds after each bucket tip, the display unit displays rainfall in
approximately 0.01" or more increments.
5. The cup of water should take more than 10 minutes to empty; a quicker
period will result in inaccurate calibration. Try to simulate a normal steady
rainfall. When cup is empty of water, display unit should register 1.06"
Tips
• There should be nearly an equal number of water drops (about 25 water
drops) between bucket tips. If not, adjust the calibration screws on the
bottom of the 5-in-1 sensor until an equal number of water drops are tipping
the buckets. Then, restart the calibration procedure.
• If you don't hear the buckets tipping and see water dripping alternately out
of each drain, there may be an issue with the rain gauge or it's adjustment.
See Troubleshooting on page 15.
Adjustment
If the rain gauge doesn't register close to 1.06", make an EQUAL adjustment to
the two calibration screws on the bottom of the 5-in-1 sensor. Turning screws
clockwise increases rainfall; counter clockwise decreases rainfall.
• To adjust the rainfall reading by 2% turn both screws 1/8 of a turn.
• To adjust the rainfall reading by 4% turn both screws 1/4 of a turn.
• To adjust the rainfall reading by 8% turn both screws 1/2 of a turn.
