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 P lace units away from large metallic items, thick walls, metal surfaces, or other objects that may limit wireless communication. PREVENT WIRELESS INTERFERENCE P lace both units at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV, computer, microwave, radio, etc.). Using The 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. STORMY & WINDY (flashing=stormy) SNOW LIKELY SNOW / RAIN MIX LIKELY RAIN LIKELY MOSTLY CLOUDY (flashing rain/snow) View the complete list of icons at www.AcuRite.com/acurite-icons 6 Multi-Variable History Chart The multi-variable history chart lets you monitor the change in conditions over the past 12 hour time period (-12, -6, -3, -2, -1, 0). The chart automatically toggles between barometric pressure, outdoor temperature and outdoor humidity readings. Wind Speed The Wind Speed area of the display features the CURRENT speed, as well as the LOW, AVERAGE and PEAK wind speeds. PEAK, AVERAGE and LOW wind speeds are based on the past 30 minute time frame by default. The time frame can be adjusted during the calibration process (page 15). Barometric Pressure Subtle variations in barometric pressure greatly impact the weather. This weather center displays the current pressure with an arrow icon to indicate the direction the pressure is trending (FALLING, STEADY, or RISING). The multi-variable history chart lets you monitor the change in pressure over time. Weather Select Weather Select displays data including wind chill, dew point, heat index, as well as 24 hour change, and high/low records for outdoor/indoor temperatures, humidity and wind speed. To change the “Weather Select” category shown, press the “SELECT” button on the front of the display. When outdoor/indoor temperature or humidity is chosen, the display cycles through the category’s records in this order: 24 Hour Change (amount the data has changed since 24 hours ago) Today’s HIGH Today’s LOW Month’s HIGH Month’s LOW All Time HIGH All Time LOW When Wind Speed is chosen, the display cycles through the following records: Today’s HIGH Month’s HIGH All Time HIGH To clear a record, view one of the values listed above and press the “CLEAR RECORD/RESET” button, located on the back of the unit in the battery compartment. Dashes display to confirm the record has been cleared. 7 REPLAY Historical Data This weather station stores historical data that can be viewed in Replay Mode.
