Yes. On the back of the display is a button where you can scroll through to see the dew point.

Hi Rory,

On the front of your display, the button on the bottom left hand side that is labeled "Select".  When you press and release that button it will cycle through wind chill, dew point, heat index, feels like, days with rain this month and days since last recorded rainfall.  Please let us know if there are any other questions that we can answer for you.

After replacing the batteries and doing a hard reset, the projected data from the weather select box is completely wrong.  As if a dew point will be 125 degrees.  Wind chill at 140 and etc.  The thermometer is a little off with a 5 degree correction to make up for the cooling fan not working (I think).  What do I do to correct the weather select?

Hello Edwin,

What is your temperature reading without any calibrations? What is the model number of your outdoor sensor. This should be located on the bottom of the sensor.   Please try the following steps:

You want the display and sensor to be at least 3 feet from electronics such as televisions, microwaves, computers & radios. Follow the battery guidelines below:

•Verify you are using fresh alkaline batteries or lithium batteries (when temperature is below -4oF/-20oC) in sensor.

•Quality brand batteries are recommended, including Duracell, Rayovac, Energizer, or Kirkland.

•Verify batteries are fresh. The battery expiration date should be at least 6 years out. Batteries can lose 3% power or more every year in storage.

•Heavy duty, extra strength or generic / store brand batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the way these types of batteries disperse power. Each battery should not exceed 1.6 volts.

•Rechargeable batteries are not recommended for use with AcuRite products because they may cause performance irregularities due to the voltage instability of these types of batteries.

•Mixing different battery types (brands, old/new, etc.) is not recommended.

Perform a hard reset:


1.Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors side by side.

2.Remove batteries from the sensor.

3.Remove batteries from the display unit and unplug the AC adapter (if applicable).

4.Wait 2 minutes to ensure any remaining battery power is discharged from both units.

5.Change the A-B-C Channel on both the display and sensor making sure they both match.

6.Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor first.

7.Reinstall batteries in display unit second.

8.Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other for 20 minutes to ensure a wireless signal is received.
* The display should receive the signal within several minutes.

9.After a connection has been established you may place the sensor outdoors.
*If the signal connection fails after the units are separated try a new or different location for the display unit, the sensor or both.

Device Id:  24C86E06387e.  Model #:  1512.  The temp is off 5 or 6 degrees when the sun is out and it is hot.  When the sun is down the temp is ok.  Cooling fan???

New Energizer batteries in all 3 units.  Sensor and displays.  Performed 3 hard resets.

The sensor has gotten to where it looses communication on a regular basis.

All help is appreciated.

Hello Edwin,

If temperature readings appear inaccurate (too high), verify the internal aspirating fan is running by opening the 5-in-1 sensor and visually inspecting the fan. If the fan is blocked by debris, most obstructions can be cleared with a gentle puff of air.

To open the 5-in-1 sensor, you will need:
Philips-head screwdriver
5-in-1 Outdoor Sensor
Step 1.
Remove the four outer screws on the bottom of the sensor. Keep the screws for re-assembly. •Note: Be careful not to remove or adjust the rain calibration screws located beneath the rain gauge.
Step 2.
Separate the upper and lower halves of the sensor.
Step 3.
Check the fan for debris, such as insects or spider webs. A gentle puff of air can clear most obstructions safely.
If no debris appears to be blocking the fan, position the top white portion of the sensor (that has the solar panel) in direct, bright sunlight. The fan should power on immediately without any assistance (such as a nudge). Note: Artificial light, such as flashlights, cannot be used as a substitute for actual sunlight. Also, overcast days may not be sunny enough to power on the fan.
Step 4.
To reassemble the sensor, bring the two halves of the sensor back together.
Step 5.
Reinstall the four outer screws to join the upper and lower portions of the sensor together.



Do you have your smartHUB connected directly into your router or are you using a switch of any kind?  The smartHUB needs a direct connection to your router.  Please try pulling the HUB away from the router and in the direction of the sensor as much as possible.  Please let us know if the issue continues. Thank you.
