    Where to Mount the Lightning Detector

    The lightning detector should be mounted a minimum of 3 feet away from cell phones, wearables, or any other devices emitting electrical noise to avoid false positive signals. If the detector goes through a sequence of all colors, this indicates that it is detecting electrical noise interference.

    Battery Instructions & Installation

    It is necessary to replace batteries as soon as the lightning detector indicates the batteries are almost dead. The detector will beep and flash the LED twice indicating that batteries need to be replaced. This alert is given every 10 seconds. If you are not using the lightning detector, make sure you remove the batteries prior to storing the detector.
