**When the unit is first turned on, the unit is in “Normal Mode” and will actively listen for lightning/storm activity. Pressing the ON button a second time puts the unit into the auto-sleep mode. In this mode, the detector will sleep until motion is detected, then it will turn on. If no motion is detected for 30 minutes, the unit goes back to sleep.

How it Works
When lightning is first detected (up to 25 miles), the detector will flash all 8 LEDs for 5 minutes. To save battery life, after 5 minutes of lightning detection, the detector switches to blinking every other LED for the remaining time that lightning is detected (red, blue, or green depending on distance of lightning).
Where to Mount Lightning Detector
The lightning detector listens for low-level signals from lightning and must be located a minimum of 3 feet away from cell phones, wearables, or any other devices emitting electrical noise. If electrical noise interference is detected, the lightning detector will go through a sequence of all colors.
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.
