TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE WIRELESS
TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The wireless temperature sensor uses 2 “AA” Alkaline Batteries. To
install and replace the batteries, please follow the steps below:
1.
Remove the battery cover.
2.
Insert the batteries, observing the correct polarity (see
marking).
3.
Replace the battery cover on the unit.
45
Note: In the event of changing batteries in any of the units, all units need to be reset by
following the set-up procedures. This is due to a random security code assigned by the
wireless temperature sensor at start-up. This code must be received and stored by the
wireless weather station in the first 3 minutes of power being supplied to the wireless
temperature sensor.
TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE WIRELESS WEATHER
STATION
The wireless weather station uses 2 “AA” Alkaline Batteries. To install and replace the
batteries, please follow the steps below:
1.
Push down on the top center of the
battery cover and pull away from the
unit to remove the cover.
2.
Insert batteries observing the correct
polarity (see marking).
3.
Replace compartment cover.
BATTERY CHANGE:
It is recommended to replace the batteries in all units on an annual basis to ensure
optimum accuracy of these units.
46
Please participate in the preservation of the environment. Return
used batteries to an authorized depot.
SETTING UP
1.
2.
3.
4.
First, insert the batteries into the wireless temperature sensor (see “To install and
replace batteries in the wireless temperature sensor”)
Within 4 minutes of activating the wireless temperature sensor, insert the batteries
into the wireless weather station (see “To install and replace batteries in the
wireless weather station”). Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the
LCD will light up briefly and a short signal tone will sound. If the indoor
temperature and indoor humidity are not displayed after 15 seconds, remove the
batteries and wait for at least 3 minutes before reinserting them. Once the indoor
data is displayed proceed to step 3.
After inserting the batteries into the wireless temperature sensor, the wireless
weather station will start receiving data from the temperature sensor. The outdoor
temperature should then be displayed on the wireless weather station. If this does
not happen after 3 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units
and reset from step 1.
The wireless weather station can receive up to 3 temperature sensors. If you have
purchased additional temperature sensors, repeat from step 1 for all extra
temperature sensors. However, ensure that you leave 10 seconds in between the
reception of the last temperature sensor and the set-up of the following
temperature sensor. The wireless weather station will number the temperature
47
5.

7.
sensors in the order of set-up, i.e. the first temperature sensor will have the
temperature displayed with the number 1 against it and so on.
With less than 3 temperature sensors received, the wireless weather station will try
to pick up the remaining one in approximately another 3 minutes. If 3 temperature
sensors are received, the wireless weather station will stop further reception.
Once the outdoor temperature has been received and displayed on the wireless
weather station, the WWVB time code reception is automatically started. This
takes typically between 6-8 minutes in good conditions.
If after 10 minutes, the WWVB time has not been received, use the SET key to
manually enter a time initially. The clock will automatically attempt to receive the
WWVB time from 12:00 to 6:00 a.m. for a successful reception. When WWVB
reception signal is successful, the received time will override the manually set
time. The date is also updated with the received time. The next reception attempt
will occur on the following day. (Please refer to notes on “About WWVB Radio
controlled Time” and “Manual Time Setting”).
Your wireless weather station is now operational!
RESETTING WIRELESS WEATHER STATION
The wireless weather station and the wireless temperature sensor need to be reset when
one of the following conditions occur:
•
Unsuccessful 433MHz signal reception of the wireless temperature sensor.
•
Malfunction of the units.
•
Batteries need replacement.
48
In order to establish proper communication between the display and outdoor sensor it is
important that they be set up as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Bring any units outside, inside and place all units 3-5 feet apart with nothing inbetween them.
Remove batteries from all units.
Press any of the buttons on the display at least 10 times to clear the memory.
Verify that the display is blank before proceeding.
Using good quality alkaline batteries, place the batteries back into the wireless
temperature sensor(s); making sure that they are installed according to the
diagrams in the battery compartment.
Taking care not to press any buttons, re-install the batteries in the weather station
according to the diagram in the battery compartment.
Do not press any buttons for at least 15 minutes after installing the batteries.
(This is to let them establish a good connection.)
ABOUT WWVB RADIO CONTROLLED TIME
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology—Time and Frequency
Division) WWVB radio station is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado, and transmits the exact
time signal continuously throughout the United States at 60 kHz. The signal can be
received up to 2,000 miles away through the internal antenna in the weather projection
station. However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited
49
during daylight hours. The wireless weather station will search for a signal every night
when reception is best.
The WWVB radio station receives the time data from the NIST Atomic clock in Boulder,
Colorado. A team of atomic physicists is continually measuring every second, of every
day, to an accuracy of ten billionths of a second per day. These physicists have created
an international standard, measuring a second as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of a Cesium133 atom in a vacuum. For more detail, visit http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq.htm. To
listen to the NIST time, call (303)499-7111. This number will connect you to an
automated time, announced at the top of the minute in “Coordinated Universal Time”,
which is also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This time does not follow Daylight
Saving Time changes. After the top of the minute, a tone will sound for every second. It is
possible that your wireless weather station may not be exactly on the second due to the
variance in the quartz. However, the clock will adjust the quartz timing over the course of
several days to be very accurate; under 0.10 seconds per day.

WEATHER FORECAST ICONS:
The weather forecast can be displayed as follow:
Sunny
Sun w/ Clouds
69
Rainy
Note: After initial set up, allow 48-60 hours for your Wireless Weather Station to
acclimate to the local pressure.
For every sudden or significant change in the air pressure, the weather icons will update
accordingly to represent the change in weather. If the icons do not change, then it means
either the air pressure has not changed or the change has been too slow for the wireless
weather station to register. However, if the icon displayed is a sun or raining cloud, there
will be no change of icon if the weather gets any better (with sunny icon) or worse (with
rainy icon) since the icons are already at their extremes.
The icons displayed forecasts the weather in terms of getting better or worse and not
necessarily sunny or rainy as each icon indicates. For example, if the current weather is
cloudy and the rainy icon is displayed, it does not mean that the product is faulty because
it is not raining. It simply means that the air pressure has dropped and the weather is
expected to get worse but not necessarily rainy.
Note:
After setting up, readings for weather forecasts should be disregarded for the next 12-24
hours. This will allow sufficient time for the wireless weather station to collect air pressure
data at a constant altitude and therefore result in a more accurate forecast.
Common to weather forecasting, absolute accuracy cannot be guaranteed. The weather
forecasting feature is estimated to have an accuracy level of about 75% due to the
varying areas the wireless weather station has been designed for use. In areas that
experience sudden changes in weather (for example from sunny to rain), the wireless
70
weather station will be more accurate compared to use in areas where the weather is
stagnant most of the time (for example mostly sunny).
If the wireless weather station is moved to another location significantly higher or lower
than its initial standing point (for example from the ground floor to the upper floors of a
house), discard the weather forecast for the next 12-24 hours. By doing this, the wireless
weather station will not mistake the new location as being a possible change in airpressure when really it is due to the slight change of altitude.
Working together with the weather icons is the weather tendency indicators (located on
the right side of the weather icons). When the indicator points upwards, it means that the
air-pressure is increasing and the weather is expected to improve, but when indicator
points downwards, the air-pressure is dropping and the weather is expected to become
worse.
Taking this into account, one can see how the weather has changed and is expected to
change. For example, if the indicator is pointing downwards together with cloud and sun
icons, then the last noticeable change in the weather was when it was sunny (the sun
icon only). Therefore, the next change in the weather will be cloud with rain icons since
the indicator is pointing downwards.
Note:
Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a change in air pressure, it will
remain permanently visualized on the LCD.

ABOUT THE OUTDOOR WIRELESS TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The range of the temperature sensor may be affected by the temperature. At cold
temperatures the transmitting distance may be decreased. Please bear this in mind when
positioning the sensor. The battery life may be reduced as well at cold temperatures.
CHECKING FOR 433MHz RECEPTION
If the outdoor temperature data is not being received within 3 minutes after setting up (the
display shows “- -. - °F” and “- -%” on the outdoor section of the wireless weather station
after 3 attempts during normal operation), please check the following items:
1.
The distance of the Weather clock or sensor should be at least 1.5 to 2 meters
away from any interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid positioning the weather station onto or in the immediate proximity of metal
window frames.
77
3.
4.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the
same signal frequency (433MHz) may prevent correct signal transmission and
reception.
Neighbors using electrical devices operating on the 433MHz signal frequency can
also cause interference.
Note:
When the 433 MHz-signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery cover of either
the temperature sensor or wireless weather station, as the batteries may spring free from
the contacts and force a false reset. Should this happen accidentally then reset all units
(see “Setting up” above) otherwise transmission problems may occur.
The transmission range is approximately 330 feet (100 meters) from the temperature
sensor to the wireless weather station (in open space). However, this depends on the
surrounding environment and interference levels. If no reception is possible despite the
observation of these factors, all system units have to be reset (see “Setting up” above).
