(not included)
1. 1 Philips screwdriver.
2. 2 Fresh AAA 1.5V batteries.
3. 2 Fresh AA 1.5V batteries
Hint: Use good quality Alkaline Batteries and avoid rechargeable batteries.
1. Have the indoor temperature station and remote temperature sensor 3 to 5 feet apart.
2. Batteries should be out of both units for 10 minutes.
3. Place the batteries into the remote temperature sensor first then into the indoor temperature station.
(All remote temperature sensors must be started before the indoor temperature station)
In this time the indoor temperature station and remote temperature sensor will start to talk to each other and the display will show both the indoor temperature and an outdoor temperature. If the indoor temperature station does not display both temperatures after the 15 minutes please retry the set up as stated above. After both indoor and outdoor temperatures are displayed for 15 minutes you can place your remote temperature sensor outdoors and set your time.
The remote temperature sensor should be placed in a dry, shaded area. The thermo­hygro sensor has a range of 330 feet. Keep in mind that the 330 feet is in open air with no obstructions and that radio waves DO NOT curve around objects. Actual transmission range will vary depending on what is in the path of the signal. Each obstruction (roof,
walls, floors, ceilings, thick trees, etc.) will effectively cut signal range in half.
Example: A wireless weather station with a 330 feet range is mounted on an interior wall, so that the signal has to pass through one interior wall, one exterior wall, and across the 10 feet width of the room between the 2 walls. The first wall will reduce the range to 165 feet, and the second wall will reduce the range to 87 feet. Factoring in the 10 foot room, this leaves a maximum of 77 feet of remaining signal range.
This allowance is typically enough for a frame wall with non-metallic siding; however certain materials can reduce range even further. Metal siding, stucco, and some types of glass can reduce signal range by as much as ¾ or more, compared to the ½ reduction typical of most obstructions. It is possible to receive a signal through these materials, however maximum range will be much less due to their tendency to absorb or reflect a much larger portion of the sensor’s signal.
To complete the set up of your indoor temperature station after the 15 minutes have passed please follow the steps below.
1. Press and hold the “SET/CH” button for 5 seconds. Note: A “12h” or “24h” will appear on the top line. (“12h” for AM/PM, “24h” for military time)
2. To change between “12h” and “24h” press and release the “MIN/MAX” button.
3. When you have your choice shown on the display press and release the “SET/CH” button once.
Note: if “12h” is selected, the temperature is displayed in degree Fahrenheit. If “24h” is selected, the temperature is displayed in degree Celsius
4. An hour will now be flashing.
5. Press and release the “MIN/MAX” button until the correct hour is shown. Note: When in the 12h mode there is “PM” displayed under the word TIME when in the PM hours. During the AM hours this area will be blank.
6. When the correct hour is shown, press and release the “SET” button once.
Press and release the SET button once more and you are done.
BATTERY INSTALLATION - When one Temperature sensor is being used
1. First, insert the batteries to the Temperature sensor (see “A. Temperature sensor” below).
2. Within 2 minutes of powering up the sensor, insert the batteries to the Temperature Station (see “B. Indoor Temperature station” below). Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly. Following the indoor temperature and the time as 12:00 will be displayed. If they are not shown in LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 60 seconds before reinserting them. Once the indoor data is displayed user may proceed to the next step.
3. After the batteries are inserted, the Temperature Station will start receiving
data signal from the sensor. The outdoor
temperature and humidity should then be displayed on the Temperature Station. If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1 and the signal reception icon is no longer shown.
Remove the mounting bracket.
a. Remove battery
b. Observing the
correct polarity, install 2 AA batteries—make sure they do not spring free, or start-up problems may occur. Replace cover.
B. INDOOR TEMPERATURE STATION Note: NOT press any buttons. This may interfere
with the signals, causing temperatures to register incorrectly.
After the batteries are installed, DO
