Proper placement of the display is critical to the accuracy and performance of this product. Display Placement Place the display 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 stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable. Important Placement Guidelines Display and sensor must be within 330 feet (100 m) of each other. MAXIMIZE WIRELESS RANGE lace unit away from large metallic items, thick walls, metal surfaces, or other objects P that may limit wireless communication. PREVENT WIRELESS INTERFERENCE lace unit at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV, computer, microwave, P 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.

The units must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other. •M ake sure both units are placed at least 3 feet (90 cm) away from electronics that may interfere with the wireless communication (such as TVs, microwaves, computers, etc). •U se standard alkaline batteries (or lithium batteries in sensor when temperature is below -4ºF/-20ºC). Do not use heavy duty or rechargeable batteries. NOTE: It may take a few minutes for display and sensor to synchronize after batteries are replaced. •S ynchronize the units: 1. B ring both the sensor and display indoors and remove power adapter/batteries from each. 2. Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor. 3. Reinstall power adapter/batteries in display. 4. L et the units sit within a couple feet of each other for a few minutes to gain a strong connection. Flashing of the outdoor temperature may be an indication of wireless interference. •M ake sure the A-B-C switch in the battery compartments of both the display and sensor are switched to the same letter. You may choose A, B or C; but both units must match to sync up. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help. •W eather Forecast icon predicts conditions for the next 12 to 24 hours, not current conditions. •H as Learning Mode icon disappeared from the display? Learning Mode must complete before forecast and pressure will be accurate. •A llow unit to run continuously for 33 days. Battery removal or resetting the display will restart Learning Mode. After 14 days, forecast should be fairly accurate, however Learning Mode calibrates for a total of 33 days. 10 Troubleshooting Problem Possible Solution Inaccurate temperature or humidity •M ake sure both the display and 5-in-1 sensor are placed away from any heat sources or vents (see page 7). •M ake sure both units are positioned away from moisture sources (see page 7). •M ake sure 5-in-1 sensor is mounted at least 5 ft off of the ground. • Calibrate indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity (see page 12). No rainfall • Check to ensure the rain gauge stabilizer (plastic tab) has been removed from the bottom of the sensor. • Clear debris, such as leaves, out of the rain collector funnel and debris screen. Inaccurate wind readings •W hat is wind reading being compared to? Pro weather stations are typically mounted at 30 ft high or more. Make sure to compare data using a sensor positioned at the same mounting height. • Check location of the sensor. Ensure it’s mounted a minimum of 5 ft in the air with no obstructions around it (within several feet). •Ensure wind cups are spinning freely. If they hesitate or stop try lubricating with graphite powder or spray lubricant. Display screen not working • Check that the power adapter is plugged into the display and an electrical outlet. •C heck that the batteries are installed correctly. Batteries may need to be replaced. •R eset the display by pressing and holding the CLEAR RECORD / RESET button, located in the battery compartment of the display. Date and time will need to be entered after a reset.
