Select a mounting position on the building where wind, rain and sun can be detected by the sensors without hindrance. There must be no structural parts above the environmental sensor from which water can still drip onto the precipitation sensor after it has already stopped raining or snowing. The environmental sensor must not be shadowed by the building structure or, for example, trees. At least 60 cm of free space must be left underneath and to the side of the environmental sensor to allow correct wind measurement and to prevent snowfall.
The environmental sensor should be oriented approximately towards the south. The actual position of the sun will be accurately calculated later by longitude, latitude, date and time.
The environmental sensor must be mounted on a vertical wall (or pole) and be horizontal (level) in the transverse direction.
In addition to mounting on the wall of the house or on the roof on a suitable pole, you can often find suitable mounting options in the garden. Garden sheds etc. are also suitable in many cases, provided that 230Volt is available.
