Wind Sensor
Features of the Thermometer-Transmitter Sensor
The thermometer-transmitter sensor measures the outdoor temperature. It also collects
readings from the rain gauge and wind sensor, then transmits the data to the home
monitor via wireless 433MHz transmission. The transmitter uses four "AA" batteries (not
included). The data from the outdoor sensors are transmitted every 128 seconds to bring
you the latest weather information which is displayed on the home monitor's LCD
(updating the information is prohibited by FCC criteria and would drastically reduce
battery life).
ThermometerPower Adaptor: A special transmitter adaptor is available to supply power to
Transmitter
the transmitter rather than using batteries. It is one of the solutions for your
Sensor
HWS during extremely cold temperatures in the winter months when batteries
may cause problems. Please call 1-800-387-8520 for ordering information, if not
found at your local retailer.
Solar Panel: A solar panel for the transmitter is available to supply power to the
transmitter rather than using batteries. It is one of the solutions for your HWS during
extremely cold temperatures in the winter months when batteries may cause
problems. Please call 1-800-387-8520 for ordering information, if not found at your
local retailer.

Features of the Wind Sensor
The wind sensor measures wind speed and wind direction and sends the data to the thermometer-transmitter
sensor, which in turn transmits the data to the home monitor. Operating power is taken from the thermometertransmitter sensor by cable connection. The wind sensor consists of the main unit with wind vane, 9m/30 ft. cable
(already attached to the main unit) mast, and base bracket.
Features of the Rain Sensor
The rain sensor measures cumulative rainfall and sends the data to the thermometer-transmitter sensor via cable
connection, which is then transmitted back to the home monitor. The cable connection also supplies operating
power from the thermometer-transmitter
-transmitter sensor to the rain sensor. The rain sensor consists of the main unit and
9m/30 ft. cable (already attached to the main unit).

5. MOUNTING
CAUTION: Great care must be taken when mounting the HWS components. The manufacture/supplier cannot be
held liable for personal or property damage when setting up the components. Please use caution when choosing a
mounting point.
Prior to drilling mounting holes and permanently affixing any of the units, please ensure the following points are
considered:
1. Cable lengths of the units meet with your distance requirements at mounting points.
2. Signal from the thermometer-transmitter sensor can be received by the home monitor at mounting point.
3. Make sure the transmitter is easily accessible. You will have to periodically replace batteries. Mount it as close to
the ground as possible.
A. Home Monitor
With three retractable legs at the back of the home monitor, the unit can be placed
onto any flat surface or mounted on a wall by using a nail or screw (not provided).
• For accurate data transmission, make sure that the home monitor is not placed in direct
sunlight, or placed in an area with drafts caused by heaters or air conditioners.
• Do not mount the home monitor on a wall which has metal heat/air conditioning
ductwork or high voltage wiring in the wall behind the station, it may interfere with its
ability to receive data from the transmitter.
• Do not mount the home monitor close to fluorescent lights or other electrical appliance.
Such devices dramatically decrease signal reception, and in some cases, prevent all
signals from reaching the home monitor.
• If the main unit is in area of transmission interference (e.g. on or near concrete walls,
home appliances, computers or metal objects) the distance of transmission will be
drastically reduced or non-existent.

B. Wind Sensor
First, choose whether the wind sensor will be mounted vertically or
horizontally (on a mast). Make sure that you position the wind sensor
in a free, open area that is not protected by objects, which may distort
or interfere with the wind (e.g. large buildings, trees, chimney, etc.).
NOTE: Make sure the following contents have been included with
your HWS for mounting the wind sensor:
•
•
•
•
•
2 x U-bolts to secure to a mast
8 x washers
4 x nuts
8 x 0.25" screws (to fix mast to main unit and base bracket)
4 x 2.75" screws (to fix base bracket to a flat surface)
Cable Preparation for Vertical Mounting
1. Run the cable that is already fastened to the wind sensor through
the vertical joining section (see right).
2. Run the cable through the extension pole but do not secure the
pole to any sections yet.
3. Now run the cable through the top of the base-bracket and then
through the small rectangular section found on one side of the
base-bracket.
NOTE: Make sure that you completely pull the cable through
the wind sensor's extension pole and base-bracket to reduce the
amount of slack on the cord.
Vertical Mount
1. Make sure that the wind vane can rotate freely before fastening
the unit permanently into position.
2. Insert one end of the extension pole provided into the basebracket.
3. Secure the connection point of the extension pole and basebracket using the 0.25" metal screws provided to prevent rotation
at the joining point. (Use 4 x 0.25" screws to ensure stability).
4. Insert the vertical joining section on the bottom of the wind
sensor into the top of the extension pole. (Ensure that you pull
all cable slack through the side of the base-bracket to prevent
creasing or cutting the cable).
5. Secure the wind sensor to the extension pole using the 0.25"
screws provided to make sure that the pole connection does not
rotate. (Use 4 x 2.75" screws to ensure stability).
VERTICAL MOUNT
IMPORTANT: For accurate readings, it is important to mount the
wind sensor so that the "N" (north) on the casing is facing the
correct direction (north). If necessary, use a standard compass to
determine north.
6. Using 4 x 2.75" screws provided, secure the wind sensor's
base-bracket to a flat surface.

���
Fig. A
NOTE: Make sure that when you are securing the base bracket with the 2.75" screws, you are aware of the cable.
Prevent driving a screw through the cable!
NOTE : For proper wind speed measurement ensure the vertical joining section is at 90º to the horizon (Fig.A).
Horizontal Mounting
Cable Preparation for Horizontal Mounting
1. Run the cable that is already fastened to the wind sensor through the horizontal joining section (see below).
2. Run the cable through the extension pole but do not secure the pole to any sections yet.
3. Now run the cable through the top of the base-bracket and then through the small rectangular section found
on one side of the base-bracket.
NOTE: Make sure that you completely pull the cable through the wind sensor's extension pole and base-bracket to
reduce the amount of slack on the cord.
Horizontal mount - using a mast/antenna/pole
NOTE: It is not recommended to secure the wind sensor horizontally from a wall or chimney because doing so will
interrupt the flow of wind from at least one direction.
MOUNT WITH "N" FACING NORTH:
For accurate readings , it is important to mount the wind sensor so that the north (N) on the casing is facing the
correct direction (north). If necessary, use a standard compass to determine north.
1. Make sure that the wind vane can rotate freely before fastening the unit permanently.
2. Using the 2 x U-bolts, 4 x nuts and 4 x washers, secure the base-bracket of the wind sensor to a stable mast/
antenna/pole. (Masts made of magnetic materials, such as lead or other dense metals will cause faulty readings).
3. Use the extension pole provided to distance the wind sensor from the stable mast/antenna/pole. Insert one end
of the extension pole into the base-bracket.
4. Secure the connection point of the pole extension and base-bracket using the 0.25" screws provided to prevent
rotation at joining point. (Use the 4 x 0.25" screws to ensure stability).
5. Insert the pole extension into the horizontal joining section. (Ensure that you pull all cable slack through the side
of the base-bracket to prevent creasing or cutting the cable).
6. Secure the horizontal joining section to the mount pole using the 0.25" screws provided to make sure that the

HORIZONTAL MOUNT
C. RAIN SENSOR
NOTE: Make sure the following contents have been included with your HWS for mounting the rain sensor.
• 2 x 2.75" screws (to fix rain sensor to a flat surface)
Place the rain sensor as far away as possible from tall buildings, trees or other obstructions. It is suggested that
the rain sensor should be no closer to tall objects or obstructions than twice the height of the object compared to
the sensor. However, low bushes, fences or walls in the vicinity of the gauge are not objectionable, as these usually
help break up the force of the wind during stormy weather conditions.
NOTE: It is recommended that you mount the rain sensor 18" (46 cm) above ground or surface to prevent water
from splashing off the ground/surface, into your rain gauge.
1. In order for the rain sensor to work properly, you MUST place the rain sensor on a level, horizontal
surface. Use of a bubble level (not included) will ensure proper mounting.
2. Remove the rain gauge lid by pushing on the tabs at either end, and pulling it upwards off the base.
3. Test that water can flow freely between the base of the rain sensor and horizontal mounting surface - pour clear
water over the water collection device and view the flow.
4. Using 2 x 2.75" screws, secure the base of the rain gauge to the flat, horizontal surface.
• It is recommended that you inspect and clean your rain gauge every couple of months. Remove any leaves that
may have fallen into the collection bowl.
• Remove the lid on the rain gauge and check if there is anything obstructing the tipping bucket mechanism.
• The rain gauge is not designed to register snowfall, therefore to avoid damage to the unit, it is recommended that
you bring the unit in during the winter, or if it is mounted in a permanent position, cover it to protect it from
snowfall.
(Also push on
the other side)
D. THERMOMETER-TRANSMITTER SENSOR
It is recommended to mount the thermometer-transmitter sensor in a shaded area out of reach of direct sunlight.
Placing the transmitter in direct sunlight will affect the outdoor temperature considerably.
It is recommended to mount the unit approximately 2 m / 6 ft above the ground on the north side of a structure
preferably in a shaded area.

6. CONNECTING THE SENSOR
Thermometer-Transmitter Sensor
You must insert the cables that run from the outdoor sensors into the corresponding sockets on the thermometertransmitter before you can begin to power up your HWS.
1. You will see three sockets: one for the wind sensor, one for the wired transmission, another for the rain sensor
(see Diagram C).
2. Connect the cables of the wind and rain sensors to the corresponding sockets
on the thermometer-transmitter by 'clicking' them into place.
7. POWERING UP YOUR HWS WITH PC INTERFACE
For best results it is recommended that the thermometer-transmitter sensor is
directly linked to the home monitor using wired phone cord. (Section 12: Wired
Transmission). There is a smaller chance of the HWS loosing transmission signal
because of interference.
NOTE: The AC/DC adaptor should be used as the primary power source for the
home monitor and batteries should only be used for back up purposes in case
of a power outage.

10. CHANGING BATTERIES IN THE TRANSMITTER
1. Press and hold the DISPLAY button until the LCD exits the normal display mode and "IO" begins to flash in the
top left corner.
2. Follow steps 5-9 in the "Powering Up Your HWS" section above.
11. WIRELESS TRANSMISSION
The HWS utilizes a transmitter, which broadcasts at 433 mHz approximately every 128 seconds to conserve battery life.
Like a cell phone signal, the transmission strength is affected by many external objects that cause electromagnetic
interference. Proximity to power and electrical appliances adversely affect the signal. Therefore, we strongly advise
that you experiment with the placement of both the transmitter and the home monitor. If the conditions are good,
you will be able to transmit at the maximum range of 60 meters, but if you are in an area with a lot of interference,
the range will be less (View "Mounting Home Monitor" on page 5).
12. WIRED TRANSMISSION
You may also link your home monitor directly to the transmitter using wired phone cord, rather than using batteries.
This is a perfect solution for your HWS during the cold months when the life of the batteries is drastically reduced or
non-existent. Wired phone cord, can be purchased at your local phone or electronics store.
NOTE: It is important to only use "4 conductor" phone cord.
13. OPTIMUM VIEWING ANGLE
You must always keep in mind that the LCD screen is constructed with an "optimum viewing angle". Your eye
should be at a 45º angle to view the LCD screen clearly.

When there are no batteries in the home monitor or transmitter the battery icon will not appear.
21. MINIMUM OR MAXIMUM MEMORY RECALL
Press the MIN button to recall all the minimum recorded weather measurements. (Including Wind Chill, Wind
Speed, Indoor Temperature, Outdoor Temperature, Pressure and Humidity).
Press the MAX button to recall all the maximum recorded weather measurements. (Including Wind Chill, Wind
Speed, Indoor Temperature, Outdoor Temperature, Pressure, Humidity and Rainfall).
22.. MINIMUM OR MAXIMUM MEMORY RESET
Press and hold the MIN button for 4 or more seconds to reset all the minimum recorded weather measurements.
Press and hold the MAX button for 4 or more seconds to reset all the maximum recorded weather measurements.
23. RAINFALL MEASUREMENT RESET
The Home Weather Station calculates cumulative rainfall. To reset the rainfall reading, press and hold the "+"
button for 4 or more seconds. "---" (dashes) will appear to indicate that the rainfall has reset. After 128 seconds, the
reading will return to 0.0 cm (or 0.0 inch).
24. TREND CHART
Please review the following tips on understanding your trend chart.
16
NOTE:
• The trend chart will not appear on the LCD after powering up the home monitor for the first time. It has to collect
air pressure data for 24 hours before it can display a trend.
• If at anytime power is lost to the home monitor, all trend information will be erased and must be collected again
for 24 hours to display a trench once the power is restored.
25. WEATHER FORECASTING
• Weather forecasting is an extremely complex science. Even professional meteorologists with the best equipment
and the aid of radar and satellite imagery often have difficulty forecasting with absolute certainty. The
predication models meteorologists use consider many weather variables, including; barometric pressure, wind
direction, wind speed, dew point, etc.
• The forecast function in the Home Weather Station is based solely on barometric pressure and the trend
recordings of general weather conditions associated with various pressure levels. It therefore has a limited ability
to forecast for the multitude of specific conditions it will encounter. It provides a general forecast of weather
changes in the same way a wall barometer forecasts changes in weather, however it does record and account for
trends that influence the forecast icon.
IMPORTANT:
• The forecast icon will always appear as "Partly Cloudy" upon powering up the home monitor. During this time, the
main station is collecting pressure information in order to generate a proper forecast.
• The first 72 hours of forecast icons may be inaccurate from what you are viewing out your window, however,
the unit continually gathers pressure data to develop trends, in turn predicting forecasts of coming weather
conditions. The longer that station is powered increases the forecast accuracy.
26. WIND CHILL
• Wind chill is a combination of both outdoor temperature and wind speed.
• For the wind chill to display on the home monitor the outdoor temperature needs to be above -50ºC (-58ºF) and
below 10ºC (50ºF) and the wind speed needs to be above 4.8 km/hr (3 mph) and below 177 km/hr (110 mph). If
the outdoor temperature and wind speed are out of the range the wind chill will display dashes ("---").
27. BAROMETRIC PRESSURE
• The Home Weather Station's barometer display will differ from local sources (TV, radio, internet, etc.). This is
because the barometric pressure quoted in these types of mediums is "barometric pressure adjusted to sea
level", which is theoretical atmospheric pressure that accounts for decreasing air pressure with elevation. Air
pressure decreases 1.0 inHg for every 1000 feet you go up in elevation. Consequently, the air pressure at the top
of a mountain is considerably less than at sea level.
• The HWS uses a sensor to measure the "absolute" or actual barometric pressure. For forecasting purposes,
however, the relative changes in pressure and pressure trends indicate the coming weather. In general, rising
pressure indicates improving weather, while falling pressure indicates deterioration of current conditions.
• The W
Weather Analyzer software has the ability to determine theoretical atmospheric pressure (or barometric
pressure adjusted to seaa level). TTo determine theoretical atmospheric pressure, please refer to the Weather
W
Analyzer software instruction manual enclosed with this unit (View Section 6B: Basic Settings and Alarm Settings
- Altitude).

28. TROUBLESHOOTING
LCD is blank
A. This occurs because there is no power supplied to the main unit.
1. Check the AC power connections to the receiving unit and the power from
the wall outlet.
2. Check the batteries and replace if needed (View Section 10: Changing
Batteries in the Transmitter).
3. Check the polarity of the batteries in the battery compartment.
4. Press the DISPLAY button to see if you are in a particular display mode
screen.
Outdoor information is not
displayed, "---"
NOTES on items in the home
that generate frequency
trouble:
• Family radios (CB's, walkietalkies)
• Digital cable or satellite boxes
radiate frequencies that will
interfere with transmission
• HAM radios
• Microwave Ovens
• High voltage wiring
A. This is usually caused by transmission interference or low battery power in
the transmitter.
i) Are there dashes for the outdoor temperature reading?
ii) Are there dashes for the wind speed reading?
iii) Are there dashes for the wind direction reading?
IF YES TO ALL QUESTIONS ABOVE:
1. Check batteries in the transmitter. Replace if needed. (View Section 10:
Changing Batteries in the Transmitter).
2. Bring the monitor beside the transmitter and remove all the batteries.
Replace them all (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS) and observe
whether ALL the outdoor readings show up. Check the timing of updates
on the home monitor (outdoor readings should change every 128
seconds). Then, place the monitor back in the regular position. Check
the timing of updates AGAIN on the monitor. If you notice the updates
occur every 128 seconds, there should be no problem. If the screen has
not updated within 5 minutes or no updates occur there is transmission
interference between the receiver and the transmitter. BOTH UNITS
MUST BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION
INTERFERENCE.
IF THERE ARE DASHES ONLY WHERE THE WIND SPEED AND DIRECTION
ARE DISPLAYED AND THE UNIT IS REGISTERING AN OUTDOOR
TEMPERATURE:
3. Check that the wires are connected from the wind speed to the
transmitter in the right slot (labeled "wind") and are fully inserted. If the
wind sensor was not inserted properly, remove the batteries from both
components and re-insert them. (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS).
A. This is usually an indication that the batteries have died in the transmitter.
Wind speed does not change
1. To conserve battery power, the transmitter broadcasts the wind speed
data (and all other weather information) every 128 seconds (2 min. 8 sec.)
19
to the home monitor. (View Section 11: Wireless Transmission).
2. Check the batteries in the transmitter. Replace if needed. (View Section 10:
Changing Batteries in the Transmitter).
3. Make sure that the wind speed sensor cord is securely fastened in the
"wind" slot on the transmitter. (View Section 6: Connecting the Sensors).
4. Bring the monitor beside the transmitter and remove all the batteries.
Replace them all (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS) and observe
whether ALL the outdoor readings show up. Check the timing of updates
on the receiving unit (outdoor readings should change every 128
seconds). Then, place the monitor back in the regular position. Check the
timing of updates AGAIN on the receiving unit. If you notice the updates
occur every 128 seconds, there should be no problem. If the screen has
not updated within 5 minutes or no updates occur there is transmission
interference between the receiver and the transmitter. BOTH UNITS
MUST BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION
INTERFERENCE.
5. Freezing rain can cause the wind direction pointer to stop moving, thus
constantly displaying the same direction. You can attempt to remove
the ice from the wind sensor, but it is strongly advised to wait for milder
weather to do so.
Outdoor readings stopped after
two days, one week, etc.
1. Battery voltage supplied by the 4 x "AA" batteries in the transmitter
is affected by cold weather, especially alkaline batteries. Low voltage
decreases the transmission distance significantly. If you are experiencing
weather below -10ºC/14ºF, it is suggested to use lithium batteries and
place the monitor and transmitter as close as possible to each other.
• Power Adaptor: a special transmitter adaptor is available to supply power
to the transmitter rather than using batteries. It is a perfect solution for
your HWS during extremely cold temperatures in the winter months when
batteries may cause problems. Please call 1-800-387-8520 for ordering
information if not found at a local retailer.
• Wired Transmission: You may also link your home monitor directly to the
transmitter using wired phone cord (View Section 12: Wired Transmission).
• Solar Panel: a solar panel for the transmitter is available to supply power
to the transmitter rather than using the batteries. It is one of the solutions
for our HWS during extreme cold temperatures in the winter months
when batteries may cause problems. Please call 1-800-387-8520 for
ordering information.
2. Electrical storms can cause transmission to stop. If this occurs, you must
reset the monitor and transmitter by removing the batteries and reinserting them correctly (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS). DO NOT
do this during the electrical storm!
20
3. Electromagnetic interference can occur from different sources that
transmit radio waves that may aff
affect how the main unit receives data
from the transmitter (if at all). It is recommended that you place the
transmitter and monitor significantly close together if there is a large
amount of electromagnetic interference in your area. Even interference
from appliances in your home may cause transmission to stop.
4. Bring the monitor beside the transmitter and remove all the batteries.
Replace them all (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS) and observe
whether ALL the outdoor readings show up. Check the timing of updates
on the home monitor (outdoor readings should change every 128
seconds). Then, place the monitor back in the regular position. Check the
timing of updates AGAIN on the receiving unit. If you notice the updates
occur every 128 seconds, there should be no problem. If the screen has
not updated within 5 minutes or no updates occur there is transmission
interference between the receiver and the transmitter. BOTH UNITS
MUST BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION
INTERFERENCE.
Wind direction is displaying
faculty readings
i) Are you mounting the unit on a mast or metal pole?
ii) Do you know what the pole is made of?
Wind direction is stuck on one
direction
1. Aluminum poles should not affect the wind direction readings, however,
masts or poles made of lead or other dense metals can affect the magnetic
sensors in the wind sensor causing the unusual readings. Move the wind
sensor, if necessary, or use the vertical mount procedure. (View Section 5:
Mounting).
2. Freezing rain can cause the wind direction pointer to stop moving, thus
constantly displaying the same direction. You can attempt to remove the
ice from the wind sensor, but it is strongly advised to wait for milder
weather to do so.
3. Check the batteries in the transmitter. Replace if needed. (View Section 6:
Powering Up Your HWS).
4. Make sure that the wind speed sensor is securely fastened in the "wind"
slot on the transmitter. (View Section 6: Connecting the Sensors).
5. Bring the monitor beside the transmitter and remove all the batteries.
Replace them all (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS) and observe
whether ALL the outdoor readings show up. Check the timing of updates
on the home monitor (outdoor readings should change every 128
seconds). Then, place the monitor back in the regular position. Check the
timing of updates AGAIN on the receiving unit. If you notice the updates
occur every 128 seconds, there should be no problem. If the screen has
not updated within 5 minutes or no updates occur there is transmission
interference between the receiver and the transmitter. BOTH UNITS
MUST BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION
INTERFERENCE.
21
Pressure reading is too high /
low / changed
The pressure sensor in your weather station is very sensitive to voltage
changes if you scroll through the display screen (using the DISPLAY button)
or plug in the AC adaptor with the batteries in it, the pressure may change
because the voltage to the sensor has either increases or decreased. After
a very short period of time, the pressure sensor will adjust itself back to the
correct pressure readings.
Only transmits when the
transmitter is right beside the
receiver
A. There is a large amount of transmission interference with the current
location of the main unit and transmitter. There may be too many walls
or electrical interference (caused by appliances in your home) between
the two units.
1. Significantly reduce the distance between the main unit and the
transmitter.
2. Bring the monitor beside the transmitter and remove all the batteries.
Replace them all (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS). Connect the
sensors and observe whether ALL the outdoor readings show up. Check
the timing of updates on the home monitor (outdoor readings should
change every 128 seconds). Then, place the monitor back in the regular
position. Check the timing of updates AGAIN on the receiving unit.
If you notice the updates occur every 128 seconds, there should be no
problem. If the screen has not updated within 5 minutes or no updates
occur there is transmission interference between the receiver and the
transmitter. BOTH UNITS MUST BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO
REDUCE TRANSMISSION INTERFERENCE.
** NOTE: the radio test is only confirming that the transmitter is sending
out a signal. **
Wind speed too high
(190 km to 200 km)
Transmission issues usually cause this to occur from other appliances or
radio waves in the air. If the problem persists, you should consider replacing
the batteries in the transmitter (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS)
and possibly moving the location of the transmitter and monitor.
Wind speed to low
1. This situation can occur because the wind speed transmission is NOT
REAL TIME. The wind speed is an average reading of gusts collected
before transmission, therefore if wind gusts happen (every 128 seconds)
to dip below the perceived wind speed over the measuring period, the
average will be reduced, resulting in what appears to be a low reading.
Wind speed not accurate
2. Is the anemometer clear of obstructions?
Wind speed & direction can be affected radically by obstructions that
interfere with actual wind. This affect can take place many meters away
from the sensor.
Example: a 40' tree even 50 meters from the sensor on the roof of a
house will disturb enough wind that the unit will never give proper data
22
from the direction of that tree.
3. Wind speed and directional data will not change if there is "transmission
interference". That means that some of the data transmitted has been
corrupted by other sources emitting waves. This could be anything wiring in walls, appliances, other electrical devices operating in proximity
of the monitor or transmitter, or between the two.
4. Freezing rain can cause the wind speed cups to stop moving, thus
constantly displaying 0.0 wind speed. You can attempt to remove the
ice from the wind sensor, but it is strongly advised to wait for milder
weather to do so.
Barometric trend doesn't work
Bring the monitor beside the transmitter and remove all the batteries.
Replace them all (View Section 7: Powering Up Your HWS). Connect the
sensors and observe whether ALL the outdoor readings show up. Check
the timing of updates on the home monitor (outdoor readings should
change every 128 seconds). Then, place the monitor back in the regular
position. Check the timing of updates AGAIN on the receiving unit.
If you notice the updates occur every 128 seconds, there should be no
problem. If the screen has not updated within 5 minutes or no updates
occur there is transmission interference between the receiver and the
transmitter. BOTH UNITS MUST BE PLACED IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO
REDUCE TRANSMISSION INTERFERENCE.
Forecast icons don't change
The trend function will not display after power up until it has collected 24
hours of pressure data. (View Section 24: Trend Chart).
The forecast icon will always appear as "Partly Cloudy" upon powering
up the home monitor. The first several hours of forecast data may be
inaccurate, because the home monitor needs to collect barometric
pressure information. Over time the forecast icon's accuracy will improve.
(View Section 25: Weather Forecasting).
Forecasts icons limitations
The "most accurate" professional weather forecasting system is only 70.2%
accurate. Forecasting is a very complex science involving very powerful
computer models, satellite imagery and radar. Scientific forecasts consider
barometric pressure, wind direction, dew point, etc. The HWS forecast only
evaluates the barometric pressure change over a certain period of time. It
is very much like using a traditional dial barometer for predicting changes
in the weather.
Battery consumption
The Home Weather Station requires constant battery power to accurately
scan outdoor weather readings. The wind speed sensor and the 60 m ( 60
yards) transmission is the main cause of power consumption. In normal
temperature ranges (10ºC to 25ºC, 50ºF to 80ºF), you can expect that the
4 x "AA" batteries in the transmitter will last approximately 7 weeks (even
lithium batteries).
23
In colder temperatures, battery life is much less - not that the use of
lithium batteries allow the chemical reaction that is creating power
to occur in colder temperatures (-40ºC / -40ºF) compared to alkaline
batteries, which fail at approximately -10ºC (14ºF), but it does not
necessarily mean that the battery's charge will last longer.
Consider the amount of times you must recharge your cell phone or
digital camera. All of these items, including the HWS, use a lot of power to
perform perfectly. For power saving consider:
• Power Adaptor: A special transmitter adaptor is available to supply power
to the transmitter rather than using batteries. It is a perfect solution for
your HWS during extremely cold temperatures in the winter months when
batteries may cause problems. Please call 1-800-387-8520 for ordering
information if not found at a local retailer.
• Wired Transmission: You may also link your home monitor directly to the
transmitter using wired phone cord (View Section 12: Wired Transmission).
• Solar Panel: A solar panel for the transmitter is available to supply power
to the transmitter rather than using the batteries. It is one of the solutions
for our HWS during extreme cold temperatures in the winter months
when batteries may cause problems. Please call 1-800-387-8520 for
ordering information, if not found at a local retailer.
The blue light on the modems
are not on
A. This occurs because there is no power supplied to the modems.
1. Check the AC/DC adaptor connection to the HWS modem and the
power from the wall outlet.
2. Check the USB cable connections to the PC modem and the PC.
The PC modem can't connect
to the HWS modem
i) Are the modems connected properly to the HWS and the PC?
ii) Is the correct phone number being dialed?
iii) Do you have an answering machine or voice mail?
1. Check the connection between the HWS modem and the HWS and the PC
modem and the PC. Reset the modems (View Section 8: Powering Up The
Modems).
2. When dialing the phone number make sure to type in the long distance
code and the area code if the phone number is a long distance number
(View Section 9: Connecting the Modems). Also, do not insert any spaces
when typing in the phone number.
3. Make sure the whole phone number is typed in. If you require to input
a number to be able to dial out from your office or home, you must
type that number in before typing in the phone number in the Weather
24
Analyzer Software.
4. If you have an answering machine or voice mail it is very important to
have the rings set to a higher number than the HWS modem (over 5
rings), otherwise the answering machine or voice mail will pick up first
and there will be no connection between the two modems.
