hours
Temperature has not changed more than 1°C/2°F in the
past three hours.
Temperature falling more than 1°C/ 2°F in the past three
hours
POSITION THE TEMPERATURE STATION:
Choose a location for the Temperature Station that is within range of the outdoor transmitter. The Temperature Station has a built in base to sit on a table or desk.
Choose a location 6 feet or more from electronics such
as cordless phones, gaming systems, televisions,
microwaves, routers, baby monitors, etc., which can
prevent signal reception.
Be aware of electrical wires and plumbing within a wall. Best reception is achieved when the front or the back of
the Temperature Station is facing the outdoor
transmitter. This allows a larger portion of the antenna to
receive a signal.
POSITION THE WIRELESS OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER:
Once the Temperature Station shows the outdoor temperature, place it and the transmitter in the desired locations and wait approximately 1­hour before permanently mounting the transmitter to ensure that there is proper reception. The transmitter should be mounted vertically, in a shaded, protected area, at least 6 feet from the ground to avoid
2
damage and ensure accurate readings. The transmitter is water resistant, not waterproof and should not be placed anywhere it will become submerged in water or subject to standing water or snow. Choose a location for the transmitter that is within range of the Temperature Station and under an overhang for accuracy.
Option 1:
Install one mounting screw (not included) into a wall
leaving approximately ½ of an inch (12.7mm) extended.
Place the transmitter onto the screw, using the
hanging hole on the backside.
Gently pull the transmitter down to lock the screw into
place.
Option 2:
Insert the mounting screw (not included) through the front of the
transmitter and into the wall.
Tighten the screw to snug (do not over tighten).
To achieve a true temperature reading, mount where direct sunlight cannot reach the outdoor transmitter. Mount the outdoor transmitter on a North-facing wall or in any well shaded area. Under an eave or deck rail work well. The maximum transmitting range in open air is over 200­feet (60 meters). Obstacles such as walls, windows, stucco, concrete, and large metal objects can reduce the range. Place the transmitter at least 6 feet in the air to improve signal transmission.
