Setting up my Weather sensor model 06014, 5in1 display model 06016 and smart hub.  When the display started up the  06014 was sitting in the house next to the display I noticed that indoor and outdoor temps were off by 1 degree. I checked my mobile and PC dashboard and both were showing 4 degrees lower.  I have 2 other digital thermometers along with a calibrated mechanical one which is reading the same as the display. So I know the display is right on and has been stable for 4 hours. why would the weather sensor be off that much? All of this is set up about 10 feet from the smarthub

Hello Bernie,

The accuracy rating is +/-2° and 5% per unit.  When comparing the sensor and the display side by side you can show up to a 4°/10% difference. My AcuRite updates at 5 minute intervals and your display updates every 18 seconds.  The difference could be the update intervals. What are the readings currently? Are they still showing such a wide difference?
