INSTALLATION
The Meade Instruments Semi-professional weather station (TE827NLW) operates at 433MHz radio frequency, so no wire
installation is required between the main unit (receiver) and the remote weather sensors (transmitters).
The remote weather sensors include a thermo-hygrometer (temperature and humidity) sensor, anemometer (wind sensor) and a
rain gauge (rain sensor). All data measured by these remote sensors is transmitted to the main unit wirelessly, with the operating
range up to 328 feet (100 meters) in the open area.
The Anemometer and rain gauge must be placed outdoors to measure weather elements.
Remote thermo-hygrometers can be placed indoors or outdoors, depending on the location where the temperature and humidity
are to be measured. If you intend measuring outdoor temperature and humidity, place the remote sensor outdoors, preferably
not in direct sunlight.
Note: It is critical to assemble and power up all of the remote weather sensors BEFORE setting up the main unit.
Note: It is critical to power up and test communication between all of the weather sensors and the main unit BEFORE
permanently mounting them outside.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
• We recommend using alkaline batteries for the remote weather sensors and the main unit when temperatures are above
32°F (0°C). We recommend using lithium batteries for the remote weather sensors when temperatures are below 32°F (0°C).
• Avoid using rechargeable batteries. (Rechargeable batteries cannot maintain correct power requirements).
• ALWAYS install batteries in the remote weather sensors before the main unit.
• Insert batteries before first use, matching the polarity in the battery compartment
• Remove protective plastic screen from LCD display (if any).
• During an initial setup, place the main unit close to the remote weather sensors.
• After reception is established (all of the remote readings will appear on the main unit’s display), position the remote sensors
and the main unit within the effective transmission range of up to 328 feet (100 meters). Ideally they should be placed within
the line of sight of the main unit. See placement tips in the user manual for each remote weather sensor separately.
• Transmission range may be affected by trees, metal structures and electronic appliances.
• The main unit must be placed indoors.
• The effective operating range may be influenced by the surrounding building materials and how the receiver (main unit) and
transmitters (weather sensors) are positioned.
• Place the remote weather sensors so that they face the main unit (receiver), minimizing obstructions such as doors, walls, and
furniture.
Note: When the temperature falls below freezing, the batteries in the outdoor remote weather sensors may have reduced
voltage supply and a shorter effective range. We recommend using lithium batteries at temperatures of 32°F (0°C)
and below.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that the remote weather sensors are easily accessible for cleaning and maintenance.
We recommend cleaning the remote weather sensors periodically, as the dirt and debris may affect sensors accuracy.

Atomic Time Reception
The main unit synchronizes the time and date with WWVB radio clock broadcasts maintaining the atomic time precision.
WWVB RADIO CONTROLLED TIME
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) radio station (WWVB) is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado. It
transmits an exact time signal continuously to most of the continental United States at 60 KHz frequency. The
Atomic Time Clock in your weather station can receive this WWVB signal through the internal antenna from up to 2,000 miles
away. Due to the nature of the Earth’s ionosphere, reception can be limited during the daylight hours. The radio controlled clock
will search for an alternate station that receives the atomic time signal from the NIST Atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado.
The WWVB tower icon on the unit’s display will flash indicating a radio signal reception from the WWVB station. If the tower
icon is not fully lit, or if the time and date are not set automatically, please consider the following:
• During night-time hours, atmospheric disturbances are typically less severe and radio signal reception may improve. A single
daily reception is sufficient enough to keep the clock accuracy within 1 second.
• Make sure the unit is positioned at 8 feet (2 meters) distance from any interference source such as a TV, computer monitor,
microwave, etc.
• Within concrete wall rooms such as basements or office buildings, the received signal may be weakened. Always place the
Projection Clock near the window for better reception.
Once the atomic time signal is received, the date and time will be set automatically, and the
icon will appear.
After the clock is set manually, place the main unit by the window for the better reception. The atomic clock receiver is
programmed that it will continue to search for the atomic time signal daily for every hour between 1:00 am and 4:30 am.
Once the time signal has been successfully received, the time and date will be updated automatically.
To enable or disable the atomic time receiver:
• Press and hold UP ? - if atomic time reception is activated, a triangular tower icon will start flashing next to the clock icon. If
reception is disabled, the triangular tower icon will disappear.

TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY MODE
The weather station supports up to 3 remote thermo-hygrometers corresponding to a separate channel of the temperature and
relative humidity display. The temperature can be displayed in Celsius (ºC) or Fahrenheit (ºF).
The main unit carries the temperature and humidity sensor and uses this indoors data to calculate an indoors comfort level - Wet,
Comfort or Dry.
A temperature alert function is available for each channel. It can be programmed to sound if the channel temperature exceeds or
falls below the pre-set upper and lower limit.
Note: The temperature alerts have a 0.5 ºC deviation to prevent them from sounding due to small temperature fluctuations that
are close to the set alert value. This means that after the temperature reaches the alert temperature, it will have to fall below the
alert temperature plus the deviation (0.5°C) to activate the alert.

MAINTENANCE
Changing Batteries
The battery status of each weather sensor is checked every hour. If the low battery indicator lights up, replace the batteries in the
corresponding unit.
Changing Batteries in the Main Unit
• First connect the AC/DC adaptor provided to the main unit to avoid losing any data.
• Remove the battery compartment door on the back and replace all batteries. Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Replace the battery compartment door.
Changing Batteries in Remote Weather Sensors
• Replace the batteries following the setup instructions for the corresponding sensor.
• When the batteries are properly installed, the remote weather sensor will resume sending signals to the main unit.
• To enforce an immediate remote signals search, press and hold DOWN ? on the main unit.
Cleaning
The main unit and outer casings of the remote weather sensors can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Small parts can be cleaned
with a cotton tip or pipe-cleaner.
Never use any abrasive cleaning agents and solvents. Do not immerse any units with electronic parts in water or under running
water.
Anemometer
Check if the wind vane and wind cups can spin freely and are free from dirt, debris and spider webs.
Rain Gauge
Checking and cleaning the rain sensor in a timely manner will maintain an accuracy of the precipitation measurements.
• Detach the protective screen and lid.
• Clean with soapy water and a damp cloth, removing dirt, leaves or debris
• Clean small holes and parts with Q-tips or pipe-cleaner.
• Watch out for spiders or insects that might have crawled into the funnel.
• Clean the swinging mechanism with a damp cloth.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Q: “The display shows dashes “- - -” for weather parameter(s)”
A: The display will show “- - -” when the wireless connection with the remote sensor is lost for the following periods:
Thermo-Hygrometer: 15 minutes
UV Sensor: 30 minutes
Anemometer (Wind Sensor):15 minutes
Rain Gauge (Rain Sensor):30 minutes
Check or replace the batteries for the corresponding sensor. Then press and hold DOWN ? on the main unit or handheld remote
to enforce a search for all remote signals.
If this does not work, check the wireless transmission path from the corresponding weather sensor to the main unit and change
their locations if necessary.
Although wireless signals can pass through solid objects and walls, the weather sensor should ideally be within the line of sight
of the main unit.
The following may be the cause of reception problems:
• The remote weather sensor and a main unit are too far from each other.
• The signal shielding materials, such as metal surfaces, concrete walls or dense vegetation, are in the path of transmission.
• There is interference from the wireless devices (such as cordless phones, radio headsets and baby listening devices) and
electronic appliances.
Q: “The weather readings on my weather station are different from the TV, radio or official weather reports.”
A: The weather data may vary considerably due to different environmental conditions and placement of the weather sensors.
Check the placement tips included in this manual to site your weather sensors in the best possible way.
Q: “The weather forecast is inaccurate.”
A: The weather forecast predicts the weather for the next 12 to 24 hours, and does not reflect current weather conditions.
