I have recently purchased an acurite 5 in 1 weather station with a smart hub. The smart hub is 2 feet away from my display but is displaying a weak signal strength. Why is this? Is the hub pulling data from the display or directly from the outdoor sensor?

Michael the hub receives the signal from the 5 in 1 sensor, the hub and the display are both receivers the 5 in 1 is the transmitter. Some things they say to do are to pull the hub as far way from the router as you can and that sometimes just turning the hub 90 degrees can improve signal strength.

Hello Michael,

The smartHUB gets it's information from your outdoor sensor. The display and the smartHUB do not communicate together as they are receivers only. We would suggest the steps that Ledrak posted above.
