A/B/C Wireless Selection
To allow for more than one weather station and wireless sensor
network to be used in close proximity, the main unit and all 3 wireless
sensors have a small switch labeled “A B C” near or in the battery
compartments. These switches are all factory preset into the same
position (either A, B, or C). This switch selects one of 3 wireless modes
to use, and all 4 switches in all 4 components MUST be set in matching
positions (either A, B, or C) for wireless communication to take place
successfully.
Install Batteries
Batteries must be installed into all three of the wireless sensors BEFORE
installing batteries into the main display unit. Use only fresh or new
batteries in all cases, and install correctly according to the polarity
( - & + ) symbols marked on the batteries and in the battery
compartments. We suggest using lithium batteries for better cold
weather performance. Do not mix old and new batteries.

- 12 -
G ADVANCED FEATURES: AUTO DISPLAY
Also available to you is the option to have the weather station
automatically display the weather category or categories that are
currently out of normal weather range.
This feature uses an internal memory of normal weather ranges for
temperature, rain, wind and seasonal values (wind chill / dew point /
heat index). If any of the weather categories current readings fall below
or raise above the factory set extremes, the auto display will take over.
The currently displayed weather category will then automatically switch
to the affected weather category. This will only happen if the
“WEATHER ALERT” feature is turned ON.
NOTE: It is important that all of the sensors be placed in a manner that
will allow for the most accurate weather condition data to be
transmitted to the main unit. For example, it will be problematic if the
WIRELESS TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY sensor is near an external heat
source, or is absorbing too much direct or reflected sunlight at certain
times of the day. This will cause artificially high extreme temperatures,
which will cause the outdoor temperature category to automatically
display.
AUTO DISPLAY ON: To turn the auto display feature on, press the
“MENU” button and use the DOWN button to scroll down to “AUTO
DISPLAY” selection. Press the “OK” button. Press the UP or DOWN
buttons to select “ON.”
AUTO DISPLAY OFF: To turn the auto display feature off, press the
“MENU” button and use the DOWN button to scroll down to “AUTO
DISPLAY” selection. Press the “OK” button. Press the UP or DOWN
buttons to select “OFF.”

About the Atomic Clock
A clock is considered atomic if it has an accuracy of one second in
a million years. Consumer clocks are considered atomic if they
attain this accuracy by receiving a signal from an atomic clock. In
North America, the National Institute of Standards and
Technologies operates an atomic clock in Colorado which
transmits the time codes via the radio station WWVB. The signal is
transmitted in a very low frequency (60,000 Hz). The Acurite clock
you have purchased includes a built-in receiver which picks up the
signal from the WWVB station. NOTE: Due to solar radiation in the
atmosphere, the atomic clock signal is weak during the day. Most
synchronization with the WWVB atomic clock signal happens at
night when there is less interference.
