New Atlas User questions
« on: July 31, 2020, 04:47:41 PM »
Hello everyone.

New to the forum and also new Atlas user from Puerto Rico.  I've had the Atlas installed at the roof for a week and a half now, but I think yesterday It had a real test.  It withstand Tropical Storm Isaias winds very well. High winds started around 4:50Am and lasted till 1:30Pm. 

All were going well until I noticed that around 2:11Pm it stopped updating. At the Display I noticed that it got stuck displaying;

Outdoor Humidity 99%
Wind Speed 18mph
Daily Rain 4.97
etc.

I thought it was the display and power cycle it. After that It wasn't able to find the Atlas weather station.  ](*,)

Frustrated I took the opportunity during a break of wind gusts and rain, went to the roof to check on the weather station.  Looked at the indicator led and it wasn't turning on every 10 secs like it did before.  I removed the batteries installed new ones but still no indication of activity. 

Removed batteries again took the Atlas inside the house, and after 15 min installed the batteries and started sending signals again.

Reinstalled and it continued working sending wind, rain, pressure updates to the screen.

One thing I noticed is that its not updating UV, Light values anymore

Anyone have had this experience before?

Thanks in advance

Pop open the black part ( rain bucket ) and make sure the wire connector is plugged in properly . I would unplug it and re-plug it in just to make sure it's making a proper connection .
