A Consumer Guide to Product Safety
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may
not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may

This equipment complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable
protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area.
However, your equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To eliminate interference you can
try one or more of the following corrective measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the distance between the equipment and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the equipment and the radio or TV.
• Consult your dealer or an experienced radio/television technician if the problem still exists.
Modifying or tampering with your system’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate the system’s warranty

Installing/Replacing the iP42 Backup Batteries
The iP42 uses “AA” LR06 batteries (pre-installed) for backup battery system to provide
continuous alarm operation and clock settings in the event of a power failure. If the Battery
Low Icon located on the right of the display is flashing, it is time to replace the backup
batteries. Please make sure the AC adaptor is connected, otherwise all settings may be lost
during battery replacement.
1. Open the battery compartment cover located on the bottom of the unit
2. Insert 2 “AA” (LR06) batteries as indicated, making sure that the + and – polarities match
the diagram inside.
3. Replace battery compartment cover.
We recommend alkaline batteries for longer battery life.
Battery Warning
For models that require more than one battery
• Do not mix with used or other battery types/brands
• Replace all batteries at the same time
• Do not open batteries
• Do not dispose of in fire
• Do not heat above 75ºC (167ºF)
• Do not expose contents to water
• Do not charge or recharge
• Do not install backwards

Setting Up the iP42
Connect iP42 to Power Source
Plug the AC adaptor cable into the AC Adaptor Jack and the other end into a standard 120V AC wall socket. Adaptor must
be plugged in to operate unit. The iP42 does not operate on batteries (a battery back up system maintains clock settings
during power failures).
This unit is a preset clock: the clock is preset at the factory. It’s simple to match the Time Zone setting to your location (US
only).
1. Depending on your location and whether or not Daylight Saving Time (DST) is in effect, manually set the DST Switch located
at the back of the unit to +1 to add an hour or to -1 to subtract an hour. A DST adjust screen appears briefly.
2. Press and hold the Time Zone Button located on the back of the unit until the Time Zone flashes on the lower part of the
display. Turn the Set Wheel to select your time zone. Note: Time Zone is disabled when clock display is set to 24 hours
(see step 5 under Setting Time).
3. Press the Time Zone Button again (or no button within 10 seconds) to exit the time zone setting mode.
4. If the displayed time is not correct, please see “Setting Time and Calendar manually” section below.
Sync Time to iPhone/iPod
The iP42 Time Sync feature allows you to sync the time setting on the iP42 to the time from your iPhone or recent model iPod
Touch, iPod Nano and iPod Classic (older iPod models such as iPod mini do not support this feature).
1. Dock your iPhone or iPod
2. Press the Time Sync Button located at the back of the unit.
3. The iP42 will sync to the time on your iPhone/iPod. Once sync is completed,“SYNC OK” will appear on the display.
4. If sync was not successful, “Failed” will appear on the display. If this happens, please try again, with a different iPhone/iPod
if needed. If time sync still fails, please set time manually (see below).
NOTE: The iPhone is constantly updated to current time via cell phone towers. The time on your iPod is only accurate to the
last time it was synced to a computer. It’s possible to have up to 59 seconds difference between the iP42 and synced
iPhone/iPod.
Setting Time and Calendar manually
1. Press and hold the Time set/sync Button located at the back of the unit until the time flashes on the display.

the left of the time display (except when clock display is set to 24 hour mode-- see step 5).
3. Press the Time set/sync button again. The year will flash. Turn the Set Wheel until the current year is displayed.
4. Press the Time set/sync button again. The month and date will flash. Turn the Set Wheel until the current month/date
is displayed.
5. During Time set, press either the
or
button to toggle the clock display format to 12 hours or 24 hours.
6. Press the Time set/sync button again (or no button within 10 seconds) to exit the time/calendar setting mode.

Buzzer, Playlist (user created), iPhone/iPod or Radio.
NOTE: to wake to playlist, you must first create a playlist named “iHome”. The iP42 will play music randomly from within
the “iHome” playlist.
