Side by Side Accuracy Test - LTV Sensors
When a sensor's accuracy is in question we suggest doing a side by side test.
Bring the outdoor temperature/humidity sensor in the house and place it next to your station for 2 hours.
- Compare indoor and outdoor temperatures. The temperatures should be within 4 degrees (F)to be within tolerance. The humidity should be within +/-7% to be within tolerance.
- If the sensor reads correctly when next to your station then try a different location outside.
- Look for heat sources such as sunlight, door or window frames, or reflected heat that may cause inaccurate readings.
- Press and release the SENSOR button two times to view the sensor ID number
Compare the barcode on your sensor to be sure they match. If your temperature is reading low, and location is not an issue, you may have a bad sensor.
If the readings are outside of our tolerance please contact us with examples of the readings.
