Model 00827 low battery indicator issue on Outdoor sensor.
What brand of Lithium batteries are you using? Lithium batteries typically put out a lower voltage than Alkaline Batteries. That being said, I believe this model uses 1 of 2 outdoor sensors. I use both, and have been running them on Energizer Lithium for a couple of years now. I am at 2.5 years on my 5-in1 now with the same set of batteries. I have three tower type sensors of both varieties running as well. You should be OK?
Please verify you are using the battery guidelines below:
- Verify you are using fresh alkaline batteries or Energizer Advanced 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.
