To allow for more than one weather station and wireless sensor
network to be used in close proximity, the main unit and both wireless
sensors have a small switch labeled “A B C” 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 3 switches in all 3 components MUST be set in matching
positions (either A, B, or C) for wireless communication to take place
successfully. See page 11 for more details.
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.

INSTALL BATTERIES:
Main Unit Startup
1. Unscrew and
remove bottom case
section.
After batteries are installed in both wireless sensors and the main unit is
powered up, the main unit will search for the wireless sensor signals.
After the sensors signals are received, the main unit will search for the
atomic clock signal. After the atomic clock signal is received, the time
and date will be maintained automatically. This may take up to 24 hours
and may not occur at all depending on your geographical location and
your physical surroundings. See “troubleshooting” for atomic clock tips.

SECTION 3 • PLACEMENT
Wireless Wind Sensor
Now that setup is complete, you must choose a location to place the 3
wireless sensors and the main unit. The wireless sensors MUST be
placed LESS THAN 100 feet away from the main unit.
This wireless weather station uses radio frequency for communication,
which is susceptible to interference from other electronic devices and
large metallic items or thick walls. Always place both units at least 3 feet
away from appliances ( TV, microwave, radios, etc. ) or objects ( large
metal surfaces, thick stone walls, etc. ) that may interfere with the
wireless communication.
WIND
(NO
RTH
)
NORTH
PLACEMENT
1. Attach the wind sensor to the
mounting bracket by simply
sliding into the bracket.
2. The sensor must be mounted
with the bracket pointing NORTH
as indicated on the bracket and
on the top surface of the wind sensor itself. The wireless wind sensor
should be mounted high above all potential wind obstructions for
maximum performance, keeping in mind it must remain within the 100
ft. wireless range of the main display unit.
Attach to a solid surface utilizing screws and wall anchors (if applicable).
Depending on the mounting surface, other steps may need to take place
to ensure the sensor is mounted successfully.

Placement of Main Unit
PLACEMENT
Place the main unit in a dry area free of dirt and dust. To help ensure
an accurate indoor temperature measurement, be sure to place the
main unit out of direct sunlight, and away from any heat sources or
vents in your home.
1. Attach to a solid vertical OR
horizontal surface out of direct
sunlight for maximum
performance. Attach the
mounting bracket utilizing the
included screws and wall
anchors (if applicable).
Depending on the mounting
surface, other steps may need
to be taken to ensure the
sensor is mounted securely.
There are 2 placement options for the main unit. You may hang the
main unit on a wall using the integrated hang hole on the back.
Alternatively, you may place the main unit on a table top or other flat
surface utilizing the removable main unit display stand.
Placement of Sensors
The wireless sensors MUST BE PLACED OUTDOORS to observe
outdoor weather conditions and relay them to the main unit display.
The wireless sensors must be placed less than 100 feet from the
main unit.

D WEATHER FORECAST: 14 DAY LEARNING MODE
This weather station has a patent pending fourteen day learning mode
calibration process. During this learning mode the weather station will
make altitude calculations that may affect the accuracy of the forecast.
Once the 14 day learning mode process is complete, the learning mode
icon will disappear and the weather forecast should be ready for
superior operation. You can track the progress of the learning mode by
viewing the progress bar located beside the future forecast weather
icon display area.
E WIRELESS SIGNAL: RECEPTION ICONS
The main unit has signal reception icons in the outdoor sensor display
areas and near the atomic clock display. If there are a low number of
“bars” present, you may experience no temperature display ( “--” ) or
inaccuracy. See the troubleshooting section for more tips on wireless
signal reception for the sensors and for the atomic clock signal.

SECTION 5 • TROUBLESHOOTING and PRODUCT INFORMATION
Set Wireless ID
WIreless RF technology is subject to interference from many sources, as mandated
by the FCC. Occasionally, there will be temporary disconnection to the wireless
sensor. This device is designed to search and acquire the signal again if there is
interference or temporary loss of signal. In most cases, the temperature will show
again if the main unit and wireless temperature sensor are able to re-connect
automatically. If the disconnection lasts longer than a few hours, refer to this
troubleshooting guide.

Relocate the main unit and/or the wireless
sensors. All units must be within 100 feet
from each other. Make sure both units are
placed at least 3 feet from other electronic
appliances and devices that may interfere
with the wireless communication (such as
TV’s, microwaves, computers etc). NOTE: It
may take up to 20 minutes for the main unit
to re-synchronize with the sensors when
batteries are replaced. Use lithium batteries
in sensors when temperature is below -4ºF.
Relocate the main unit. It is important that
the atomic clock sensor (located in the
wireless temperature/humidity sensor) is
located in an area clear of any large stone
or metallic surfaces. Make sure the main unit
is placed at least 3 feet from other electronic
appliances and devices that may interfere
with the wireless communication (such as
TV’s, microwaves, computers etc). Large
metallic surfaces will also interfere with the
atomic clock signal.
If wireless reception is bad (no bars), see
“Bad Reception” section above. The wireless
ID setting on each unit must match for all
units to communicate properly. See “Set
Wireless ID” on the next page.
Make certain that the batteries are installed
correctly. The batteries may need replacing.
If you are using the AC power adaptor, make
certain it is plugged in and the outlet power is
switched on.

This wireless weather station uses long range 433mhz radio
frequency for communication.
In the event that you have reception problems due to interference,
both the main unit and both wireless sensors have a selectable
wireless ID. The ID switches are located within the battery
compartments of the main unit and the wind sensor. The switch is
located near the battery compartment cover on the temperature
sensor.
You may choose A, B or C; but both the main units and the
wireless sensors ID's must match for successful synchronization.

Extended periods of cold temperatures ( below -4ºF / -20ºC )
can cause alkaline batteries to function improperly. This will
cause the outdoor wireless sensor to stop transmitting
temperature readings. Use lithium batteries in these low
temperature conditions to ensure continued operation for
wireless sensors placed outdoors.

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.
