How does the Dashboard on MyAcuRite Calculate Battery Strength in each of the sensors?

Not sure what criteria the Battery Strength Indicator uses, and, what to expect on the dashboard if the batteries start to become weak in one of the sensors.

If the MyAcuRite Dashboard does not provide some type of Battery Strength warning besides "Normal", it does not provide users with any type of useful information.

Hope there is a real indication when the sensor batteries have a problem starting to develop.

myAcurite doesn't determine what the battery status is... it's determined by the sensors themselves.

When the battery status for a sensor is low, then myAcurite will alert you.

Ok, thank you. In that case, what will the Battery Strength indicate when I hover over the sensors green bar on the MyAcurite dashboard page?

Just curious if that indication is a one step warning, or a multi step warning.

I have a remote with 3 locations 1 sensor reads normal battery and 2 sensors have shown low battery since October, so it looks like it gives plenty of warning before the sensor battery gets low enough to fail.

Batteries put out less when they are colder. So weak batteries tend to show up when the temps stay below 50. If you winters stay really cold (over days), do follow the recommendations and use Lithium batteries

Hello Rik,

When the sensor battery is low you will get a notification that the sensor battery is low. If you are hovering the green bar and it says normal you are fine. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.
