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.).

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.

Inaccurate forecast
Possible Solution
•R
elocate the display and/or the 5-in-1 sensor.
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.

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.

from dust, dirt and moisture. Clean ventilation ports regularly with a gentle puff of air.
Calibration
The indoor / outdoor temperature and humidity readings, and barometric pressure can
be calibrated on the display to improve accuracy. Calibration can improve accuracy
when sensor placement or environmental factors impact the data accuracy.
