Different Pressure reading

On my Acurite Access Info page the pressure is reading 28.35 as in the pic. On my display it’s reading 29.72. Can someone explain to me the huge difference between the two. Also is there away to correct it so they are the same reading?

Jim,

The first thing to know is that there are two individual sensors involved here. One in your display and one in the Access hub, each with their own offset errors. Assuming you bought a bundle with a 5n1, the barometric data does not come from there.

Second, the display will auto calibrate over time. Excellent discussion here:

Not exactly your situation, but close.

As always, model numbers and a system description helps to answer any detailed questions.

Yes, on re-read, I see you do have a 5n1.

Yesterday when going through the settings I did see for a split second it was showing a reading of 28. something then I hit it again and it went back to 29.72. Not sure why I saw to different readings under the pressure reading

Hello Jim,
The second picture above shows the Wrench Icon which signifies the display has been calibrated.  To calibrate the barometric pressure this display will need to be in Manual mode. It appears you were in manual mode then back to Auto in the pictures above. The display goes through the 14-33 day learning mode which will show a calibrated reading in Auto. When in manual the reading is raw data. The AcuRite Access will show a raw reading when in Station pressure mode on My AcuRite and a calibrated reading in Adjusted mode however, the splash page will always show raw, not calibrated data.
