INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of this UPM Wireless Weather Station WS2635.
Please take the time to read and understand this manual, to enjoy the features
and convenience of this product.
What is a Weather Station?
A weather station is a device that measures the current weather conditions and
transmits these readings from outdoor sensors to an indoor receiver. Then, based
on these outdoor sensor readings, predicts the upcoming weather forecast for
the next 8-12 hours. The weather forecast is displayed on the receiver as weather
icons, such symbols of the sun, clouds, rain or snow.
Remote transmitters:
- Temperature transmitter (WT440H / Thermometer):
The outdoor temperature sensor transmits an updated wireless signal to the
receiver every minute. The current temperature is then displayed on the receiver,
in either Celsius or Fahrenheit. Additional temperature sensors may also be
placed other locations (such as your greenhouse or wine cellar) to monitor
temperature fluctuations in multiple locations. The receiver is compatible with up
to three remote temperature transmitters, but only one is included in this kit.
- Humidity transmitter (WT440H / Hygrometer):
The concentration of water vapor in the air, at the location of the transmitter, is
displayed as a relative humidity percentage ranging from 15% to 95%. The ideal
‘Comfort Zone’ for the human body ranges from 35 to 65% humidity, so long as
the temperature remains between 18° and 24°C.
3
INTRODUCTION
- Air Pressure (WS2635 / Barometer):
A barometric pressure sensor is located within the receiver unit itself. The
barometer monitors the atmospheric pressure, which is the amount of downward
force exerted by the weight of the air, and is measured in inches of mercury (Hg).
Air pressure fluctuations are an important factor in predicting changes in the
weather.
- Wind speed and direction gauge (WDS500 / Anemometer):
The wind speed and direction is measured by the anemometer sensor, and this
data is wirelessly transmitted to the receiver. The direction of the wind is
displayed on a digital compass and the speed is given in km/h or mph.
- Rain level gauge (RD700 / Pluviometer):
The rainfall is measured and recorded by the rain gauge; it can be displayed in
millimeters or in inches by the receiver. The rain gauge gathers precipitation until
its inner "tipping bucket" mechanism is full, then the bucket tips and the liquid is
released. Every minute, the rain gauge calculates the number of times the bucket
has tipped; then transmits this data to the receiver. The total accumulated rainfall
(for the last hour, the present day, or for the previous day) may be displayed.

TRANSMITTER SETUP
Before following the steps below, make sure you have the following items:
- Compass (not included)
- 9 x AA batteries (included)
- 10 screws (included)
Setting the wind gauge
The wind gauge is a sensor that transmits the wind speed and the direction to
the receiver.
1. To install, (see diagram F)
2. There are 3 methods to mount the wind gauge (See diagram H).
If you are installing the shaft in a horizontal position, remove the cap first.
Note: 4 plugs are provided to screw the wind gauge’s plate to a
concrete or brick surface.
Note: Before mounting, you must use a compass to align the “N”marking on
the plate of the wind gauge so that it is facing north (see diagram I).
To see the North marking, you must temporarily remove the wind gauge fin.
This step is necessary to indicate the correct wind direction.
3. Mounting the wind gauge (see diagram I)
Note: Mount the wind gauge in an open space, as high as possible and
without any nearby walls or obstacles, in the direct flow of the wind.
- attatch the cups to the wind sensor body with the 3mm x 8mm screws.
- make sure the top of the wind gauge is stable and level.
- To enure the most accurate readings, make sure that the wind cup and the fin
are freely mobile.
8
TRANSMITTER SETUP
- When the wind gauge's batteries are low, the following symbol will display on
the receiver, under the wind speed display:
Setting the rain gauge sensor
The rain gauge is an individual sensor that transmits rainfall to the receiver and
measures the total rainfall and precipitation history.
1. To insert batteries into the rain gauge(see diagram G)
2. To view possible locations to install the rain gauge. (See diagram H)
3. To fasten the rain gauge with 2 screws (see diagram J)
Note: The rain gauge gathers precipitation, until it's inner "tipping bucket"
mechanism is full, then the bucket tips and the liquid is released. So place
the unit in a location where the water can be safely released. To obtain
accurate precipitation readings, there should be no obstacles (walls, trees, etc...)
close to the rain gauge. When the rain gauge’s batteries are low, the following
indicator will display on the receiver under the rain fall display:
Setting the temperature / humidity remote sensor
1. Remove the detachable cover at the back of the unit.
2. Use a screwdriver to open the battery door, located at the back of the unit.
3. Insert 2 AA batteries according to the indicated polarity.
4. Close the battery compartment and re-insert the screw. The remote sensor
will now display the outdoor temperature and humidity alternatively.
5. To toggle between ºC/ºF temperature display, press the ºC/ºF key.
(Diagram C [2])

INTERFERENCE
Interference occurs when radio waves or electronic signals are blocked or
interrupted by consumer electronic products. In the case of a weather station,
the signal from the transmitter to the receiver may be interrupted by a wireless
telephone, or other electronic equipment. Additionally, if your next door neighbor
is operating a similar weather station, your receiver might pick up a signal from
their temperature sensor by mistake. The solution to undesired interference is to
set your temperature sensor(s) on a specific frequency (or house code) which
ranges from 1-15. (This house code setting may be applied to the temperature/
humidity transmitter (WT440H) only, not to the wind or rain gauges in this kit.)
Setting the House Code
The house code is the frequency signal sent by the remote sensor to the
receiver. If the receiver experiences signal interference, you will need to set the
remote sensor to a different house code (default setting = 1).
After inserting the batteries, the house code will flash for 8 seconds. Select a
house code (1-15) by pressing ºC/ºF (Diagram C [2]) and then press SET
(Diagram C [1]). The remote sensors for each receiver must be set to the
same house code.
10
SET CHANNEL
Set Channel for one or multiple sensors
The WS2635 comes with only one temperature/humidity transmitter (WT440H)
but it is compatible with up to three. If only one sensor is used the transmitter will
default to channel one. However, if you have purchased additional remote
temperature sensors, you must set each of them to a different channel (1, 2 or 3)
but be sure to select the same house code (1-15) on all temperature sensors.
After setting the house code, the channel will flash for 8 seconds.
Select a channel (1-3) by pressing ºC/ºF (Diagram C [2]) and then press
SET (Diagram C [1]). Channel 1 is the default, used for collecting temperature
and humidity data from the outdoors.
Low battery indication: if the batteries of the sensor are low, the indicator
will be displayed on the receiver below the outdoor temperature display.
Note: If the sensor is exposed to very low temperatures for an extended period
of time, the batteries may lose power, reducing the transmission range.
11
RECEIVER SETUP
Setting the receiver
Lift the battery door located at the back of the receiver and insert 3 AA batteries
according to the indicated polarity, then close the battery compartment.
The WS2635 is designed to automatically synchronize it’s calendar and clock
once it is brought within the reception range of a WWVB radio signal. The receiver
will display the outdoor temperature and humidity data transmitted from the sensor.
The receiver will also display the data collected from the wind and the rain gauge
sensors.
LOW BATTERY INDICATION: If the batteries of the receiver are low, the
following indicator
will be displayed on the screen of the receiver below
the inside temperature. When the receiver’s LCD display becomes dim that is
also an indication that the batteries are low and need to be changed.
12
SYNCHRONISATION
Automatic Learning Function
1. After batteries have been inserted into the temperature/humidity sensor,
wind gauge, rain gauge and receiver, the learning function will automatically
begin and runs for approximately 3 minutes.
2. Within these 3 minutes, the receiver will begin to read the temperature &
humidity signals and displays the readings.
Manual-Learning (Searching for Remote Signals)
If a new remote sensor is added, or if the signal is lost (WT440H is blinking),
the learning function must be completed again.
1. Press and hold CHN on the receiver (Diagram A [4]) for 3 seconds.
2. A beep sound indicates that the learning function has started.
3. The ‘OUTSIDE’ symbol will flash, and the unit will beep as each remote sensor
is detected.
4. Temperature & humidity readings of the remote sensor, wind direction, wind
speed and rainfall readings will be displayed on the receiver.
Note: The Auto/Manual Learn Function will not operate while the radio controlled
clock is receiving signals. (LCD radio antenna will be flashing)
13
INSTALLATION
Receiver installation (WS2635)
The receiver has an adjustable stand and a wall mount hole. To attach receiver
to the stand, simply click stand ball into the hole at the bottom of the receiver.
The receiver can then be placed onto any flat stable surface. To ensure reliable
signal transmission, the receiver should not be installed near a dense wall,
electronic devices or a large metal surface. To mount the receiver on a wall,
use a nail or hook to hang the unit.
Temperature/Humidity transmitter installation (WT440H)
The WT440H sensor has a detachable back cover, with both a wall mount hole
and an easel stand. To mount the remote sensor on a wall, use a nail or hook.
To place the remote sensor on a window sill or flat outdoor surface, tilt back the
easel stand and ensure the unit is stable.
Since the transmission range between the receiver and transmitter, can be
affected by the dense walls or electronic interference, place them as close
together as possible. Also, before choosing a final location for the remote
temperature sensor(s), test that the receiver is consistently displaying
readings from the transmitter(s).
Although remote temperature transmitters are weather resistant, it is highly
recommended to place them away from direct sunlight, rain or snow. An ideal
location would be on a window sill or under a deck. This will prevent weather
damage to the unit and maintain more accurate readings.
14
CLOCK AND DATE SETTING
RADIO CONTROLLED CLOCK (RCC)
The WS2635 is designed to automatically synchronize it’s calendar and clock,
if it is brought within the reception range of a radio signal. In most regions
of North America, this weather station will be able to receive a time signal from
Fort Collins, Colorado.
The clock will automatically start scanning for the radio signal approximately
7 minutes after new batteries are inserted in the receiver. When searching for
the radio signal the Radio Tower symbol, on the LCD screen, will start to blink.
A complete scan may take several hours, depending on the strength of the
radio signal. The radio signal may not be detectable in all regions of North
America, but the clock time may still be set manually.
If the radio clock scan does not begin automatically this function may also be
triggered manually by holding the MINUTE/- key for 3 seconds. When the
reception is complete, the Radio Tower symbol will stop blinking and remain
solid. The clock will automatically re-synchonize the time at 02:07 every day
to maintain accuracy. Note: During time signal scan, the receiver will no longer
update data received from the outdoor weather gauges.
TIME ZONE SETTING:
- Press and hold MODE for 3 seconds to enter clock setting mode.
- Press MODE again. (Day and month will flash)
- Press CHN to select the time zone (Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific)
and press SNOOZE to select DST (Daylight Savings Time) if applicable.

* The snow symbol will appear solid when the temperature of channel 1 falls
below -1.9 °C
29
WEATHER FORECASTING
REMARKS:
* The temperature/humidity transmitter should be placed outdoors on channel 1,
since this is the default weather forecasting channel. The data from channel 1
is responsible for determining which weather forecast icons display on the
receiver's LCD screen (as well as the temperature and humidity trends).
* After installation is completed, allow 12-24 hours for the weather station to
operate at a steady state, as this will ensure a more accurate forecast.
* Common to weather forecasting, absolute accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
* If the temperature/humidity transmitter is moved from one location to
another, which is significantly different, or higher or lower, than its original
position (e.g from the ground floor to 1st floor of a house), remove the batteries
and then reinsert them after 30 seconds. Then re-synchronize the
temperature/humidity transmitter with the receiver. (see synchronization section)
A change in location may alter the transmitter's local temperature or humidity
readings.
* Ensure that the temperature/humidity transmitter is placed well away from
direct rain, direct sunlight, any sources of heat, or areas of your home with less
insulation, (such as ventilation outputs or single pane windows) because the
temperature/humidity may be affected by heat or humidity escaping from
your home.
