G E T T H E M O S T AC C U R AT E R E A D I N G S P O S S I B L E STEP 3: MOUNTING BASICS At this time, all of your sensor information should be displayed on your station. Here are a few quick tips for mounting your sensors: THERMO-H YG R O RAIN WIND Keep out of direct sunlight & ensure the sensor is well-ventilated. Mount in an open area, preferably off the ground on a level platform. Ensure the sensor is mounted vertically–an unobstructed rooftop is ideal. We recommend mounting under a deck or eave facing north. Clean out the bucket regularly to avoid debris; this can affect readings. Your wind sensor should be the tallest object in the area to avoid any obstructions. Note: For detailed mounting instructions, please review the full manual.
