About this task

Each Selectable Weather Category features an alarm option. When an alarm sounds, the display unit emits audible beeping and flashes the affected category, its alarm settings, and any other relevant data. Some alarms can be customized to alert you when your programmed value is reached. Alarms include: outdoor temperature, outdoor humidity, wind speed, heat index, dew point, wind chill, indoor temperature and indoor humidity. The rain alarm does not require a preset numerical value, but instead sounds as soon as rain is recorded. Similarly, the storm alarm sounds when a large atmospheric pressure drop occurs, which usually indicates an oncoming storm. Note: The storm alarm is NOT intended to be a safety device or warning system. display AcuRite 01036 weather station


  1. After tuning for 14 days, the Learning Mode icon disappears from the display screen. At this point, the self-calibrated pressure is tuned in to your location and the unit is ready for superior weather prediction.

Setting up Display Unit & 5-in-1 Sensor

Setup of Display Unit & 5-in-1 Sensor can be done beforehand.

About this task

Display and sensor have to be connected, and a switch must be correctly set.


5-in-1 Sensor Setup
  1. Set the A-B-C Switch of the sensor. It can be set to A, B or C.
Display Unit Setup
  1. Set the A-B-C Switch of Display Unit.
    Sensor and display are connected.
    The A-B-C switch is located inside the battery compartment. It can be set to A, B or C. However, you must select the same letter choices for both the sensor and the display unit in order for the units to synchronize.
  2. Plug Power Adapter into Electric Outlet.
  3. Write Down the MAC ADDRESS: 12 digit unique ID needed for online connectivity functions.
  4. Install or Replace Backup Batteries (optional) Insert 6 x AA alkaline batteries into the battery compartment, as shown. Follow the polarity (+/-) diagram in the battery compartment.
    Sensor and display have been setup.
