Hello Bob,

Are you getting a low battery indicator or are you losing connection to the display? Are you able to test the batteries to make sure they still have voltage. We are experiencing a higher than normal call volume due to it being our peak time of the season. We are sorry you were not able to get in contact with us, but would be happy to assist you on here. Please make sure you are using the following guidelines when using batteries.

  • 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.


 Thank you. Enjoy your day!
