Temperature sensor keeps disconnecting

  • Updated 2 years ago
I thought I finally got my outdoor temperature sensor to work, and it did for a few days.  I positioned the bridge so that the signal only needed to go through a double pane window and the clear side of my greenhouse.  The distance is 97 feet.  Today, the sensor disconnected, so I went out and replaced the batteries, putting in new lithium batteries.  It took awhile, but it connected again for a little while, but has disconnected again. The only things, besides the window and greenhouse plastic side are a few branches of trees, but sighting between them, there is almost a clear line of site.  I could use any suggestions at this point.

Hi Baysailor,

Please bring the sensor next to the bridge. Remove the batteries for about 5 minutes. Put the batteries back in the sensor. Wait for it to update on Acu-Link by checking the time stamp. Once it updates you can put the sensor back where it belongs. We recommend using Lithium batteries when the temperatures are -4F or colder where you live. I would recommend using a standard alkaline such as Rayovac, Duracell, or Energizer in the sensor. Nothing heavy duty or Max. Nothing generic or store brand either. If you need further assistance please contact AcuRite customer support at 877-221-1252. Have a good day!
