Placement for Maximum Accuracy AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper placement of both the display unit and the 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. To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources or vents. Display unit stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable. 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.). 7 OPERATION 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. 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. It generates a forecast with pinpoint accuracy personalized for your exact location. RAIN LIKELY PARTLY CLOUDY MOSTLY CLOUDY CLOUDY SNOW LIKELY RAIN/SNOW MIX LIKELY (flashing=stormy) (flashing=stormy) View the complete list of icons at www.AcuRite.com/acurite-icons 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 beep 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. Note: The storm alarm is NOT intended to be a safety device or warning system. 8 Set a Weather Alarm 1. Choose the weather category for which you wish to set an alarm by pressing the up or down arrow buttons until the category is displayed on the Selectable Category part of the display unit. 2.
