ˆ Introduction
Your RadioShack Extra Remote Sensor
is designed for use with the RadioShack
Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer
with Indoor/Outdoor Hygrometer system
(Cat. No. 63-1030). Installation is easy,
with no wires to connect. You can mount
the remote sensor outdoors or in another
room (away from the system’s main unit),

or use its supplied wire stand for easy
viewing on a table or desktop.
INSTALLING BATTERIES
Your sensor requires two AA batteries
(not supplied) for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended
type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard,
alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.

Note: If you expect to use the remote
sensor in temperatures below –4°F
(–20°C), we recommend you use lithium
batteries.
Follow these steps to install batteries.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove
the screws in the battery compartment cover, then lift off the cover.
2. Set CHANNEL and °C/°F inside the
compartment to the desired set6

tings. (See “Changing the Display
Channel” on Page 13 and “Changing
the Degree Format” on Page 15)
3. Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity
symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
4. Use a pointed object (such as a
straightened paper clip) to press
RESET and initialize the sensor’s
transmitter.
5. Replace the cover and secure it with
its screws.
When
appears (on either the sensor
or under the sensor’s channel number on
the main unit) or the sensor stops operating properly, replace the batteries.

63-1031.fm Page 8 Wednesday, June 28, 2000 10:25 AM
Warning: Dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not burn or
bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the
sensor for a week or longer, remove the
batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can destroy electronic parts.
MOUNTING THE SENSOR
You can place the remote sensor on a flat
surface, or mount it on the wall using
screws (not supplied) and the supplied
bracket.
Selecting a Location
Choose a location for the remote sensor
that is within about 328 feet (100 m) of
the main unit. The remote sensor can be
placed either indoors or out.

The construction of your home or office
might affect the transmission range between the main unit and the remote sensor. If you have a choice of several
locations, try each to see which provides
the best performance.
Caution: Do not place the remote sensor
where it will be:
• in direct sunlight
• in water (it is weather-resistant, not
water-proof)
• near electrical appliances or heating
or air conditioning vents
Using the Stand
To set the remote sensor on a flat surface, insert the ends of the supplied wire

ˆ Operation
Once you install batteries in the remote
sensor, it displays the current temperature, humidity, and the channel number it
is set to, and starts transmitting signals
(to your Cat. No. 63-1030 system’s main
unit) about every 41 seconds.
CHANGING THE DISPLAY
CHANNEL
The Cat. No. 63-1030 system’s main unit
can display information for up to three different remote sensors.
Operation

63-1031.fm Page 14 Wednesday, June 28, 2000 10:25 AM
Set CHANNEL 1/2/3 inside this remote
sensor’s battery compartment to a different setting than all other remote sensors
you are using. Then press RESET using a
pointed object (such as a straightened
paper clip).
Note: If you set two or more remote sensors to use the same channel, the main
unit displays temperature and humidity
information for the remote sensor's signal
it received first.

ˆ Care
Keep the sensor dry; if it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately. Use and store the sensor only in normal temperature environments. Handle the sensor carefully; do
not drop it. Keep the sensor away from
dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp
cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the sensor’s
internal components can cause a malfunction and invalidate its warranty. If
your sensor is not performing as it
should, take it to your local RadioShack
store for assistance.
