Installing the Storm Device

Jason Feb 12, 2018 06:10AM PST

Hi--I am planning on installing the Storm device in a couple of months in conjunction with the Sky device(already own) on a metal pole away from the house, but still within wifi range. What is the minimum distance that it needs to be away from the house to ensure accuracy of wind speed, etc.?

R/,

Jason

Dear Jason,

Thank you for contacting BloomSky. We actually have a video regarding getting the most accurate wind speed. I will link it here:

You should have it about 100 feet away from any obstructions and 30 feet in the air for best windspeed results.

Regards,
Nick

Jason,

Before you get too invested in installing the STORM at a relatively inaccessible pole height, make sure the thing works correctly. You may be taking it down several times to debug issues.
