TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE WEATHER
PROJECTION STATION
The weather projection station uses 3 AA
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.

TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE REMOTE
TEMPERATURE/HUMIDITY SENSOR
The remote temperature/humidity sensor uses 2 AA 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.
5
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 remote temperature/humidity sensor at start-up. This
code must be received and stored by the weather projection station in the first
3 minutes of power being supplied to the remote temperature/humidity sensor.
BATTERY CHANGE:
It is recommended to replace the batteries in all units on an annual basis to
ensure optimum accuracy of these units.
Please participate in the preservation of the environment.
Return used batteries to an authorized depot.
SETTING UP
The weather projection station can be either batteries-operated or
powered by the provided AC adapter.
BATTERY INSTALLATION:
1.
First, insert the batteries into the weather projection station (see “To
install and replace batteries in the weather projection station”). Once
the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly and
a short signal tone will sound. Then the ALM1 6:00, the indoor
temperature and humidity, the time as 12:00, the date as WE 1.1. and the
6

4.
weather icons will be displayed. 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 2.
Within 4 minutes of activating the weather projection station, place the
batteries into the remote temperature/humidity sensor (see “To install
and replace batteries in the remote temperature/humidity sensor“).
After inserting the batteries into the remote temperature/humidity sensor,
the weather projection station will start receiving data from the remote
temperature/humidity sensor. The outdoor temperature and humidity
should then be displayed on the weather projection 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 weather projection station can receive up to 3 remote
temperature/humidity sensors. If you have purchased additional remote
temperature/humidity sensors, repeat from step 3 for all extra remote
temperature/humidity sensors. However, ensure that you leave 10
seconds in between the reception of the last remote temperature/
humidity sensor and the set-up of the following remote temperature/
humidity sensor. The weather projection station will number the remote
temperature/humidity sensors in the order of set-up, i.e. the first remote
temperature/humidity sensor will have the temperature/humidity
7

6.
7.
displayed with the number 1 against it and so on.
With less than 3 remote temperature/humidity sensor received, the
weather projection station will try to pick up the remaining one in
approximately another 3 minutes. If 3 remote temperature/humidity
sensors are received, the weather projection station will stop further
reception.
Once the outdoor temperature and the humidity have been received and
displayed on the weather projection 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 weather projection station is now operational!
Note:

Note:
If the weather projection station is powered through the AC adapter, the
projection will be constantly ON.
If the weather projection station is battery operated the projection will turn ON
only when the SNOOZE key is pressed. Once the SNOOZE key is released,
the projection and E.L. backlight will stay on for approximately 10 seconds.
USING BOTH BATTERIES AND THE POWER ADAPTOR
When using both the AC adaptor and batteries the main power source of the
weather projection station will switch to AC power. The batteries will then act
as a backup power source in the case of power failure.
RESETTING
The weather projection station and the remote temperature/humidity sensor
need to be reset when one of the following conditions occur:
•
Unsuccessful 433MHz signal reception.
•
Malfunction of the units.
•
Batteries need replacement.
For resetting, remove all batteries from the units and unplug the AC adapter
from the power source. Wait at least for 3 minutes before powering up the
weather projection station again. Proceed from step 1 in “Setting Up”,
12
“Battery Installation” or “How to use the Projection Station Power
Adaptor”.
HOW TO USE THE PROJECTOR
The projector projects the current time and the current outdoor temperature
onto the ceiling, only within a darkened room. The projection image can
also be adjusted in 4 upright positions, each with a rotation of 90º by using
the
key.
TO PROJECT THE TIME OR TEMPERATURE ONTO A FLAT
SURFACE:
The projector will only project the current time, outdoor temperature or
alternate between time/outdoor temperature only.
1.
Point the projection lens to the appropriate direction (ideal distance of
the projection is 6 feet/2 meters).
2.
Press the DISPLAY key to select the desired mode for the projection.
There are 3 display modes:
M0 – projecting the current time only.
M1 – projecting the current outdoor temperature only.
M2 – projecting by switching the display of the current time and
the current outdoor temperature for every 5 seconds.
13
3.
Adjust the projection image in an upright position with the
key.
Note:
If more than one remote temperature/humidity sensor is used, only the
temperature from remote temperature/humidity sensor 1 will be projected.
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 during daylight hours. The
weather projection 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 Cesium-133 atom in a vacuum. For more
detail, visit http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq.htm. To listen to the NIST
14
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 weather projection 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 AND WEATHER TENDENCY
INDICATOR:
Weather forecast icon
Weather tendency indicator
Weather Boy icon
WEATHER FORECAST ICONS
The weather forecast can be displayed a s follow:
Sunny
Cloudy
32
Rainy
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 weather projection 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 weather projection
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 weather projection station has been
33
designed for use. In areas that experience sudden changes in weather (for
example from sunny to rain), the weather projection 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 weather projection 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 weather projection station will not mistake the new
location as being a possible change in air-pressure when really it is due to the
slight change of altitude.
WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR
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
34
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.
WEATHER BOY FORECASTING ICONS:
A total of 24 Weather Boy icons combinations can be displayed depending on
outdoor temperature and air pressure recorded from outdoor transmitter 1
only.
Once the temperature and air pressure are recorded, the weather station
automatically display the appropriate Weather Boy icon as an indication of
current weather and suggestion for dressing up accordingly.
The icon will remain permanently visualized on the LCD once it registered a
change in temperature and air pressure.
For additional details on the Weather Boy icons, please refer to the additional
information sheet “WEATHER FORECAST ICONS COMBINATIONS”.

38
SENSOR
The range of the remote temperature/humidity 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 and humidity data is not being received within
three minutes after setting up (the display shows “- -. - °F” and “- -%” on the
outdoor section of the weather projection station after 3 attempts during
normal operation), please check the following items:
1.
The distance of the weather projection station or remote
temperature/humidity sensor should be at least 6 feet (2 meters) away
from any interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid placing the remote temperature/humidity sensor onto or in the
immediate proximity of metal window frames.
3.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers
operating on the 433MHz-signal frequency may prevent correct signal
transmission or reception. Neighbors using electrical devices operating
on the 433MHz-signal frequency can also cause interference.
Note:
39
When the 433 MHz-signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery
cover of either the remote temperature/humidity sensor or weather projection
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
remote temperature/humidity sensor to the weather projection 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).
POSITIONING THE REMOTE TEMPERATURE/HUMIDITY
SENSOR:
Each transmitter is supplied with 2 wall mounting screws and plastic anchors.
To wall mount simply:
1.
40
Secure the wall base onto a
2.
desired wall using the screws and
plastic anchors.
Insert the transmitter to the wall
base.
Note:
Before permanently fixing the transmitter wall base, pace all units in the
desired locations to check that the outdoor temperature and humidity readings
are receivable. In event that the signal is not received, relocate the
transmitters or move them slightly as this may help the signal reception.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE:
•
•
Extreme temperatures, vibration and shock should be avoided as these
may cause damage to the units and give inaccurate forecasts and
readings.
When cleaning the display and casings, use a soft damp cloth only. Do
not use solvents or scouring agents as they may mark the LCD and
casings.
41
•
•
•
•
Do not submerge the units in water.
Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and
damage. Replace only with new batteries of the recommended type.
Do make any repair attempts to the units. Return it to their original point
of purchase for repair by a qualified engineer. Opening and tampering
with the units may invalidate their guarantee.
Do not expose the units to extreme and sudden temperature changes,
this may lead to rapid changes in forecasts and readings and thereby
reduce their accuracy.
