OPERATION
Placement for Maximum Accuracy
AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper
placement of both the display and outdoor sensor are critical to the accuracy
and performance of this product.
Display Placement
Place the display in a dry area free of dirt and dust. Display
stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable.
Outdoor Sensor Placement
Sensor must be placed outside to observe outdoor conditions.
Sensor is water resistant and is designed for general outdoor
use, however, to extend its life place the sensor in an area
protected from direct weather elements.
Using the Thermometer
High & Low Records
The display will automatically cycle through today, 48 hour, and all-time high
& low temperature records. All-time high & low records reflect the minimum
and maximum temperature recorded since the unit was powered on, since
the batteries were changed, or since it was manually reset (whichever was
most recent). To manually reset the high/low records currently being viewed,
press and hold the UP or DOWN button on the back of the display for
3-5 seconds.

Flashing of the outdoor temperature is generally an
indication of wireless interference.
1. B
ring both the sensor and display indoors and
remove at least one battery from each.
2. Reinstall the battery in the outdoor sensor.
3. Reinstall the battery in the display.
4. L et the units sit within a couple feet of each other
for a few minutes to gain a strong connection.
•R
elocate the display and/or the outdoor sensor. The
units must be within 165 ft (50 m) of each other.
•M
ake sure both units are placed at least 3 feet (.9 m)
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

•M
ake sure both the display and outdoor sensor are
placed out of direct sunlight and away from any heat
sources or vents.
Hang the sensor using the integrated hang holes or hanger, or
by using string (not included) to hang it from a suitable location,
like a well covered tree branch. The best location is 4 to 8 feet
above the ground with permanent shade and plenty of fresh air
to circulate around the sensor.
Important Placement Guidelines
• To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place units out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents.
• Display and outdoor sensor must be within 165 ft (50 m) of each other.
• To maximize wireless range, place units away from large metallic items, thick
walls, metal surfaces, or other objects that may limit wireless communication.
• To prevent wireless interference, place both units at least 3 ft (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV, computer, microwave, radio, etc.).
