Ancient 5 in 1 Humidity Temp Sensor
« on: September 26, 2017, 05:27:03 PM »
So I ordered a replacement humidity temp sensor direct from AcuRite knowing that my unit was old and I'd have to solder in the new one.  Much to my surprise it's much older than I thought and I don't think it can be replaced.  Anybody think of anything I can do to make the new sensor work?

No.  There's nothing you can do to make it work.

Those chips are completely different and use a different mode of communication to the main board.

Thanks for the reply.

Maybe it's time to make a Frankenstein weather station with an Arduino and the 5-1 sensors
