Thank you … … … … … … … .
For purchasing this Emerson Research SmartSet® Dual Alarm Clock Radio with Triple
Display plus ‘Touchless’Snooze and Display Control Features. We think you will be truly
amazed by all of the features that we have packed into this compact bedside companion.
First of all there is Emerson’s patented SmartSet® Automatic Time Setting System. The
first time you connect this clock radio to your AC outlet it will immediately set itself to the
correct year, month, date, day and time in the Eastern Time Zone. If you live in a different
time zone there is one simple Time Zone adjustment to make and you will never see the
dreaded “flashing 12:00” display again. It will automatically reset itself every time you
have a power interruption, and not just the time but your wake-up times as well. Daylight
Saving Time and Leap Year adjustments are also done automatically through the year
2099.
In addition to the jumbo amber time display there are two smaller displays that show the
Alarm 1 and Alarm 2 wake-up times, so you can see at a glance that the alarms are set
correctly. If one of the alarms is off, the display clearly shows “OFF”. No guesswork required.
Like to hit that snooze bar in the morning but don’t like reaching for the top of the radio?
Problem solved. Just wave your hand in front of the Touchless Snooze Wave Sensor and
go back to sleep for another 9 minutes. No touching required.
Love that big display that’s so easy to see but prefer to sleep in total darkness? We
thought of that one as well. Just set the display dimmer control to the “OFF/WAVE” position
and the display goes off completely. But if you need to check the time in the middle of the
night just wave your hand in front of the sensor. The display returns to full brightness for 10
seconds and then switches off again. Brilliant!
Just like every other SmartSet® model, this clock radio has a built-in, long-life lithium battery
that can provide back up for all of the important settings for up to 5 years or even longer.
No need to try and remember to install a fresh 9V battery ever 6 months. And when it’s
time to change the lithium battery the low battery indicator will ‘flash’in the display.
We have taken great care to make sure that every feature in your clock radio was working
properly when it left our factory. If, after reading this manual completely, you have any
problems with the set-up or operation of this model, please do not return it to the retail
store. Please call the Emerson Consumer Products Customer Service Hotline, toll free, at
1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Central Time. One of our
product specialists will try and solve the problem for you. If that is not possible you will be
instructed about the procedure to receive a replacement model.
Once again, thank you for purchasing this Emerson Research SmartSet® Clock Radio.

Unpacking And Set Up
• Remove the radio from the carton and remove all packing material from the
radio. We suggest that you save the packing material, if possible, in the unlikely
event that your radio ever needs to be returned for service. The original carton
and packing material is the only safe way to pack your radio to protect it from
damage in transit.
• Remove any descriptive labels or stickers on the front or top of the cabinet. Do
not remove any labels or stickers from the back or bottom of the cabinet.
• Note the serial number on the bottom of your radio and write this number in the
space provided on the Warranty page of this manual.
• Place your radio on a level surface such as a table, desk or shelf, convenient
to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of excess heat,
dirt, dust, moisture, humidity, or vibration.
• Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length. The FM antenna is
built in to this cord. It must be fully extended to provide the best FM reception.
Protect Your Furniture
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

Power Source
This radio is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC power only. Do not
attempt to operate the radio on any other power source. You could cause damage
to the radio that is not covered by your warranty.
This radio should be connected to an AC outlet that is always ‘live’. Do not connect
it to an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch. When the power to the radio is
interrupted, the built in lithium battery takes over to maintain the time and alarm
settings. To maximize the life of the lithium battery keep the radio connected to a
‘live’AC outlet at all times.
You will note that this system is equipped with a polarized AC power plug having
one blade wider than the other. This is a safety feature. If this plug does not fit into
your existing AC outlet, do not try to defeat this safety feature by filing the wide
blade to make it fit into your outlet.
If this plug will not fit into your outlet, you probably have an out-dated non-polarized
AC outlet. You should have your outlet changed by a qualified licensed electrician.

Setting The Time, The First Time
IMPORTANT: The first time you connect your new SmartSet® clock radio to the
AC outlet the internal computer will automatically set the time correctly for the
Eastern Time Zone, which is the initial default setting. The displays will scroll for a
few seconds and then show the correct Year, Month, Date, Day and Time in the
Eastern Time Zone. If you live in the Eastern Time zone, there’s nothing else to do.
Your clock is set correctly and running.
If you do not live in the Eastern Time zone you must change the default zone
display to your own zone. You only do this one time and the SmartSet® will remember
the new default zone setting and will always return to that setting after a power
interruption
There are 7 time zones programmed into your SmartSet® clock radio as follows:
ZONE 1
—
Atlantic Time
ZONE 2
—
Eastern Time
ZONE 3
—
Central Time
ZONE 4
—
Mountain Time
ZONE 5
—
Pacific Time
ZONE 6
—
Yukon Time
ZONE 7
—
Hawaiian Time
(Default Setting)
To change the default time zone display,
depress the TIME ZONE button. The number
WAVE SENSOR
“02” will appear on the display indicating that
the default zone is ZONE 2, Eastern Time.
Hold the TIME ZONE button and then press either the SET
(Up) or
(Down)
buttons until your own time zone appears on the display, then release the buttons.
The clock display will change to the correct time in the time zone you selected. The
clock will always return to the correct time in the zone you selected after every
power interruption.
If you move to a different time zone, simply change the default zone display to the
new zone and the SmartSet® will remember that setting for you.

Display Brightness Control
This SmartSet® Clock Radio features a unique display brightness control system
that gives you three convenient options:
• HIGH – when the dimmer switch is set to the “HIGH” position the clock display
is always at full brightness. The dimmer switch was set to the ‘High’position at
our factory.
• LOW – when the dimmer switch is set to the “LOW” position the display
brightness is reduced by approximately 50%.
• OFF/WAVE– when the dimmer switch is set to the “OFF/WAVE” position the
display goes ‘Off’completely. This is designed for people who prefer to sleep
in total darkness. However if you want to see the clock display at any time,
slowly wave your hand in front of the WAVE SENSOR on the front panel. The
clock display will immediately return to full brightness for 10 seconds and then
shut off again automatically. The effective operating range of the Wave Sensor
is approximately 12” to 36” from the front panel.

function properly. If the radio has been in a cold location the WAVE
SENSOR may not operate immediately. Place the radio in the room where
it will be used, connect it to the AC outlet, and allow approximately 30
minutes to 60 minutes for the radio to come to room temperature before
testing the WAVE SENSOR function.
B.) If the dimmer switch is set to the “OFF/WAVE” position the display will be
completely off. However at the Alarm time the display will return to full
brightness automatically. It will remain at full brightness for one hour and
then return to the ‘Off’ position. If you stop the alarm immediately by
pressing the respective Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 buttons, or set the Alarm 1 or

Changing The Lithium Battery
Like all batteries, eventually the built in lithium battery will need to be replaced. A
number of factors, such as, the length of time between the date the radio was
manufactured and the date you plugged it in for the first time determine the amount
of time before replacement. During this initial storage period, the lithium battery is
supplying power to the SmartSet® computer memory. Once you plug the radio in,
your household outlet supplies the power, and the battery is not being used. A
fresh lithium battery can supply power to the SmartSet ® computer for at least 3
years even if it is never connected to an AC power supply. If your radio was
connected to your AC supply within a few months after it was manufactured, and
you experience only the normal, nuisance type, short duration power interruptions,
your battery may last for up to 5 years or even longer.
When the battery power drops below a certain level, the
LOW BATT.. indicator
will ‘Flash’. When you see this indicator, you should change the battery as soon as
it is convenient for you to do so. To change the battery proceed as follows:
1.) Purchase a replacement 3V lithium battery wherever batteries are sold. The

Resetting The Clock After A Total Memory Loss
If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time
after you see the
warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted
and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet ® internal
computer. If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted,
or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet® memory will be lost and the clock
will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium
battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each
time the power is interrupted.
If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC
power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is
restored.
The initial default setting is 12:00 AM,
SATurday, January 1st (1.01), 2005.
If you notice that the time on your SmartSet ® clock radio is completely incorrect,
and the DAY OF WEEK indicator is also wrong, press the CALENDAR button. If
the small displays are showing “1.01” and “2005”, you probably experienced a total
memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:
1.) Follow the instructions on page 19 and install a new CR2430 lithium battery in
the battery compartment.
2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.
3.) Depress the CALENDAR button. The ALARM displays will change to “Month.
Date” and “Year”.
• While holding the CALENDAR and TIME buttons, press the SET (Up) button
to set the ALARM 2 display to the correct year, then release the buttons.
• While holding the CALENDAR button, press the SET
(Up) button to set the
ALARM 1 display to the correct “Month” and “Date”. When the correct month
and date appear on the display, release the buttons.
• The DAY OF WEEK indicator will change automatically as you adjust the “Year”,
“Month/Date” settings.

4.) Depress the TIME button and the SET (Up) buttons to set the display to the
correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’or
‘PM’by observing the AM indicator.
5.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still
correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.
The SmartSet® clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain
it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power
outages you experience.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode
settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
