The Radiation Shield works best when in a location with a steady breeze. Mount away from fences, buildings, trees, or other obstructions.
Install over plants or soil if possible.
Do not install over or near sprinklers. The Radiation Shield is not designed to protect the sensor from water sprayed upwards.
If attaching to a building, the preferred location would be on the north side in the Northern Hemisphere and on the south side in the Southern Hemisphere..
