Orient the 5in1 sensor so that the solar panel is facing south and that the unit is level when mounted.
Congratulations on your new weather station! It should provide you many years of excellent service. In regards to your indoor temperature, here are some troubleshooting steps to follow:
AcuRite’s accuracy standard for weather products is +/-2°F. When comparing two AcuRite thermometers, there may be up to a 4° difference in temperature. Example: Current temperature is 70°F. Unit 1 reads 72°F (+2°) and unit 2 reads 68°F (-2°F).
- If you have another weather product of known accuracy, place the 2 units side by side for at least 1 hour to fully adjust to the ambient temperature.
- The units should read within 4° of one another.
- Or, if you believe the outdoor sensor to be accurate, you can bring the outdoor sensor inside next to the display unit and allow the 2 units to sit side by side for an hour to ensure they read within 4° of one another.
Should you need anything else, please let us know. Have a great day!
Thanks for your reply. When I started the install of my 5in1 I put the batteries in the sensor first then the display. I then let the two sit side by side for like 30 mins. The indoor temp reading was 82 degrees and the outdoor temp reading was 74 degrees. The temp reading on my home thermostat was 74 degrees. That tells me that the 5in1 sensor is working perfectly.
The display is still showing an 8 to 10 degree higher reading then my thermostat and I know it's right.
Is the indoor temp and humidity sensor in the display? if so, I may have a bad display
I was hoping to get a color display soon. lol, just not this soon
Thanks for your help,
