Important Placement Guidelines Display unit and sensor must be within 330 feet (100 m) of each other. MAXIMIZE WIRELESS RANGE lace units away from large metallic items, thick walls, metal surfaces, or other P objects that may limit wireless communication. PREVENT WIRELESS INTERFERENCE lace both units at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV, P computer, microwave, radio, etc.). Using the Professional Weather Center Learning Mode Self-Calibrating Forecasting use a unique algorithm to analyze changes in pressure 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. 6 Weather Forecast AcuRite’s patented Self-Calibrating Forecasting provides your personal forecast of weather conditions for the next 12 to 24 hours by collecting data from the sensor in your backyard.
