Hello Jose,

The sensor features enhanced interference rejection capabilities to prevent false lightning detection. When the detector cannot detect lightning due to interference from nearby equipment, the sensor's interference indicator will flash.

• Electric motors (windshield wiper motor or fan motors in cars, hard drive and optical drive motors on your PC and AV equipment, well pumps, sump pumps)

• CRT monitors (PC monitors, TV's)

• Fluorescent light fixtures (turned off or on)

• Microwave ovens (while in use)

• PC's and mobile phones

If you continue to get interference we would recommend relocating the sensor out of range of any of the objects mentioned above.
