transmitter before activating the next transmitter by repeating steps
3 and 4.
However, ensure that you leave 10 seconds in between the
reception of the last transmitter and the set-up of the following
transmitter. The Temperature Station will number the transmitters in
the order of set-up, i.e. the first transmitter will have the
temperature displayed with the number 1 against it and so on.
When the outdoor temperature(s) is received the Temperature
Station and transmitter(s) should be positioned in the desired
places (see Positioning & securing below)
49
Note:
Should the total time of inserting the batteries into the transmitters take
longer than 2-1/2 minutes from the time of inserting the batteries into the
Temperature Station then temperature reception problems may occur. If
the temperature is not be received, then see Checking for 433 MHz
reception, before resetting the units (see Resetting the Temperature
Station below).
In the event of changing batteries in any of the units, all units need to be
reset by following the setting up procedures. This is because a random
security code is assigned by the transmitter at start-up and this code must
50
be received and stored by the Temperature Station in the first 2-1/2
minutes of power being supplied to it.
LCD SCREEN

57
By pressing the “MIN/MAX” key the current indoor temperature will
alternate between the minimum, maximum and current temperature
recordings (also changes for outdoor temperature). Once a new indoor
temperature high or low is reached, it will automatically set into the
Temperature Station’s memory.
OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE READING:
The outdoor temperature reading is on the bottom line of the LCD under
the indoor temperature. The Temperature Station receives the outdoor
temperature via 433 MHz frequency when the batteries are inserted into
the transmitter within the 2-1/2 minutes of the setting up time (See Setting
up above).
58
Note: Should the outdoor temperature not be received within 2-1/2
minutes after inserting the batteries into a transmitter, then see
“Checking 433 MHz reception” below.
59
MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE
READING:
Outdoor sign

60
By pressing the “MIN/MAX” key the current indoor and outdoor
temperature will alternate between the minimum, maximum and current
temperature recordings. The time when the minimum and maximum
outdoor temperature records were received will be also shown on the LCD
blinking (recorded time is for outdoor temperature only). Once a new
outdoor temperature high or is low reached, it will automatically be set into
the Temperature Station’s memory.
61
RESETTING THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURE RECORDING:
By pressing and holding down the “MIN/MAX” key for about 3 seconds,
both the indoor and outdoor minimum and maximum temperature
recordings will be reset to the current indoor and outdoor temperatures.
Only the outdoor temperature channel being displayed on the LCD will be
reset. To reset another outdoor temperature channel, user shall first move
to the desired transmitter No.
OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE 1, 2, AND 3
If the more than one transmitter is being used, to alternate between the
62
temperature readings of transmitter 1, 2, and 3, simply press the
“SET/CH” key. If the reading is from transmitter 1, then the identification
numbers 1 will be displayed in the outdoor temperature section of the
LCD. The same will apply to the next transmitter and so on. However, if
only one transmitter is used, no identification number will be displayed on
the LCD.
CHECKING FOR 433 MHz RECEPTION:
In normal surroundings (for example away from interfering sources such
as TV sets), the outdoor temperature can usually be easily received within
2-1/2 minutes. If the outdoor temperature is not displayed on the LCD after
2-1/2 minutes, then check the following:
63
1.
2.
3.
4.
The distance of the units should be at least 1.5 - 2.0 meters away
from interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
Avoid placing the units onto or in the immediate proximity of metal
doors, window
frames or structures.
Using other electrical products such as headphones and speakers
that operate on the same signal (433 MHz) can prevent the
transmission pick up.
Neighbours using electrical products operating on the 433 MHz
signal can also cause interference. In most severe cases, the
64
5.
6.
reception is only possible once all other electrical products using
the 433 MHz are switched off.
Within thick concrete rooms such as basements and tower blocks,
the 433 MHz signal can be weakened (avoid placing near metal
frames and structures).
Transmission can be affected by exposure to extreme temperature
conditions. For example, if the weather has been extremely cold
(under -25ºC) for an extended period of time then the transmission
signal may be weakened. (Please bears this in mind when
positioning the transmitter).
65
Note:
Should after checking the above list and the outdoor temperature
is still not received, then reset the units (see Resetting the
Temperature Station below).
RESETTING THE TEMPERATURE STATION:
1.
Remove the batteries from the Temperature Station and the
transmitter(s)
Wait at least 30 seconds and repeat the procedures specified in
Setting up above.
Note: Remember when resetting, all units have to be reset and to
always insert the batteries into the Remote Thremo first and then
followed by the transmitter(s).
2.
66
POSITIONING
TEMPERATURE STATION:
The Temperature Station comes complete with a detachable stand that
gives the option of table standing or wall mounting. To wall mount:
1.
Fix a screw into the desired wall, leaving the
head extended out the by about 5mm.
2.
Using the Temperature Station’s hanging
hole, carefully hang it onto the screw.
Note: Always ensures that the unit locks onto the
screw head before releasing.
67
OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER:
The Outdoor Transmitter is supplied with a holder that may be attached to
a wall with the three screws or double-sided tape supplied. To attach to
the wall using screws, please follow the steps below:
1.
2.
3.
Mark the wall using a pen through the holes
in the holder to obtain the exact drilling
position.
Drill holes in the wall at the points marked.
Screw holder onto wall.
68
The Outdoor Transmitter simply clicks in or out of the holder. When
inserting or removing the Outdoor Transmitter to or from the wall holder
please hold both units securely to avoid tearing the holder from the wall.
There is also double sided tape included with the wall holder. On smooth
surfaces this can be used instead of drilling holes. The mounting surface
can, however, affect the transmission range. If for example the unit is
attached to a piece of metal, it may then either reduce or increase the
transmitting range. For this reason, we recommend not placing the unit on
any metal surfaces or in any position where a large metal or highly
polished surface is in the immediate proximity (garage doors, doubleglazing, etc.). Before
69
securing in place, please ensure that the Temperature Station can receive
the 433 MHz signal
from the Outdoor Transmitter at the positions that you wish to situate
them.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE:
•
•
Avoid placing the units in areas prone to vibration and shock as
these may cause damage.
Avoid areas where the units can be exposed to sudden changes in
temperature, i.e. direct sunlight, extreme cold and wet/moist
conditions as these will lead to rapid changes in temperature which
reduces the accuracy of readings.
70
•
•
•
•
When cleaning the LCD and casing, use a soft damp cloth only. Do
not use solvents or scouring agents.
Do not submerge the units into water.
Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and
damage. Replace
only with new batteries of the recommended size.
Do not make any repairs to the units. Please return them to the
original point of purchase for repair by a qualified engineer. Opening
and tampering with the units may invalidate its guarantee.
