SETUP
5-in-1 Sensor Setup
1 Set the A-B-C Switch
The 5-in-1 sensor requires lithium
batteries in low temperature
conditions. Cold temperatures can
cause alkaline batteries to function
improperly. Use lithium batteries in
the 5-in-1 sensor for temperatures
below -4ºF / -20ºC.
Locate the A-B-C switch inside the
battery compartment. Set the A-B-C
switch to A, B or C. You must select
the same letter choice for both the
sensor and the companion unit (not
included) in order for the units to
synchronize.
2 Install or Replace Batteries
Batteries MUST be installed for
this product to operate. AcuRite
recommends high quality alkaline
or lithium batteries for the best
product performance. Heavy duty
or rechargeable batteries are not
recommended.
3 Remove Rain Gauge Stabilizer
Locate and remove the rain gauge
stabilizer (plastic tab) taped into
the bottom of the sensor. The rain
gauge will not function until this is
removed.

PLEASE DISPOSE OF OLD OR DEFECTIVE BATTERIES IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE
WAY AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
BATTERY SAFETY: Clean the battery contacts and also those of the device prior to battery installation. Remove batteries from equipment which is not to be
used for an extended period of time. Follow the polarity (+/-) diagram in the battery compartment. Promptly remove dead batteries from the device. Dispose of used
batteries properly. Only batteries of the same or equivalent type as recommended are to be used. DO NOT incinerate used batteries. DO NOT dispose of batteries in fire,
as batteries may explode or leak. DO NOT mix old and new batteries or types of batteries (alkaline/standard). DO NOT use rechargeable batteries. DO NOT recharge
non-rechargeable batteries. DO NOT short-circuit the supply terminals.

Placement for Maximum Accuracy
AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper
placement of both the display and the sensor are critical to the accuracy and
performance of this product.
5-in-1 Sensor Placement
The 5-in-1 sensor is designed to remain outdoors all year long.
Choose an open location with no obstructions above or around
the sensor for the most accurate measurements.
Important Placement Guidelines
Display and sensor must be within 330 feet (100 meters) 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 units at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV, computer,
P
microwave, radio, etc.).
LOCATE AWAY FROM HEAT SOURCES
Position sensor away from heaters, air conditioners, chimneys, exhaust vents,
asphalt and concrete (surfaces that radiate heat).
LOCATE AWAY FROM HUMIDITY SOURCES
Avoid installing the sensor near pools, spas, or other bodies of water. Water
sources may impact humidity accuracy.
LOCATE AWAY FROM SPRINKLER HEADS
DO NOT install the sensor where it will be sprayed by a sprinkler system. This
may force water inside the sensor.
LOCATE AWAY FROM WIND & RAIN OBSTRUCTIONS
DO NOT mount the sensor with obstructions around it. Consider a location
that is a wide open area, with few structures around to ensure accurate wind
measurement.

5-in-1 Sensor Installation Guidelines
INSTALLATION HEIGHT Mount the sensor at a minimum height of 5 feet
(1.5 meters) off the ground, in an open area. Higher is better for wind
measurements - the National Weather Service recommends 33 feet
(10 meters) high!
MOUNTING OPTIONS The included mounting bracket is designed to screw
directly onto wooden posts or surfaces that are 2”x 4” or larger. The sensor
can also be mounted directly to 3/4” steel pipe (available at hardware stores
and home centers).
SOLAR CELL INSTALLATION Install the
sensor with the solar cell facing SOUTH.
This ensures the cell receives as much sun
as possible and orients wind direction.
NO OBSTRUCTIONS

5-in-1 Sensor Installation
1. F
asten mounting base (included) to a
post or pole (not included) using the 4
longer screws included in the hardware
bag.
2. Insert the mounting base into the hole
on the bottom of the sensor.
(1.5 meters)
3. M
ake sure the arrows on the top of
the sensor are pointed in the proper
direction and the bubble level is
centered. The solar cell should be
facing south to properly orient the
wind direction.
4. F
asten the sensor into the mounting
base using the 2 shorter screws
included in the hardware bag.
The 5-in-1 sensor is now ready to use.
Basic Setup is Complete
The 5-in-1 sensor will now synchronize with the display. It may take a few
minutes for synchronization to complete. If both or one of the units appear to
be functioning improperly, please refer to the troubleshooting section.
5
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, companion unit, plastic cup, pin, screw driver
1. First, ensure 5-in-1 sensor is perfectly level using built-in bubble level.
2. Use compatible companion unit or AcuRite software to monitor 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 companion unit displays rainfall in
approximately 0.01” or more increments.
5. The cup of water should take more than 20 minutes to empty; a quicker period will result
in inaccurate calibration. Try to simulate a normal steady rainfall. When cup is empty of
water, companion 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.
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.
