Acu-Rite thermometers consist of a transmitter for measuring outdoor temperatures and a base unit with a digital display featuring the time and indoor and outdoor temperatures. These devices require no programming, just inserting the batteries and properly placing both the main unit and the outdoor sensor. Once in place, sit indoors and look at your Acu-Rite thermometer base unit to determine whether the temperature has reached too high or too low a level to venture outdoors.

    Tie a string around the top of the outdoor remote sensor and hang in from a tree branch or nail on your home in a spot away from direct sunlight and extended water exposure. Keep the remote sensor within 100 feet of the main base unit.
