AcuRite® Atlas™
Outdoor Device
model 06059
How It Works
AcuRite® Atlas™ is an
environmental monitoring station
that delivers key information
on current outdoor conditions
at its installation location. The
outdoor device contains sensors
that read temperature, humidity,
wind speed and direction, rainfall,
UV, light intensity, and optionally
lightning (requires optional
Lightning Detection Sensor; may
be purchased separately). These
readings are transmitted over a
433 MHz wireless radio frequency
to be received by the AcuRite
Atlas indoor HD display and/
or AcuRite® Access™. Readings
received by AcuRite Access can
be monitored and viewed online
from My AcuRite. Receivers may
not be included, and may be
purchased separately.

surrounding environmental conditions.
Proper placement of the outdoor device is
critical to the accuracy and performance
of this product.

outdoor device in a location that meets all the requirements below:
Located within 330 feet (100 m) of receiving device
(AcuRite Atlas indoor display or AcuRite Access)
Some construction materials and other sources of
interference may reduce this distance.
At least 5 feet (1.5 meters) off the ground

Important Additional Placement Guidelines
Choose an open location with no obstructions above or around the outdoor device for the most accurate measurements.
Maximize Wireless Range
Place outdoor device away from large metallic items, thick
walls, metal surfaces, or other objects that may limit wireless
communication.
Maximize Temperature Accuracy
Position outdoor device away from heaters, air
conditioners, chimneys, exhaust vents, asphalt and
concrete (surfaces that radiate heat).
direction sensors an additional 30 feet (9 meters) from
the outdoor device to maximize the accuracy of wind
measurements.
Locate Away from Sprinkler Heads
DO NOT install the outdoor device where it will be sprayed
by a sprinkler system. This may force water inside the
device.
Maximize Humidity Accuracy
Avoid installing the outdoor device near pools, spas, or
other bodies of water.
Maximize Wind Accuracy
It’s recommended to mount the outdoor device at least
5 feet (1.5 meters) off the ground, higher is better for wind
measurement. The National Weather Service recommends
33 feet (10 meters) high. Avoid nearby wind obstructions
such as trees and buildings. Be sure to mount the outdoor
device securely, as swaying or shaking may cause
inaccurate rain or wind readings.
Note: Consider the optional Wind Extension kit (may be
purchased separately) to extend the wind speed and
