Commands are transmitted by radio waves at 433.42 MHZ
Power: 3V Lithium battery, CR430
Operating temperature: 0 deg. C/32 deg. F - +60deg. C/140 deg. F
Range: Up to 65ft.
Mount: Window glass/sill
Dimensions: Diameter 2 3/16” /(55.5mm) x Depth 3/4” /(19mm)
Indoor Use Only
PROGRAMMING: ADDING A THERMOSUNIS WIREFREE™ RTS SENSOR - INITIAL INSTALLATION
NOTE: During initial programming, it is recommended that power is provided only to motor or RTS receiver being programmed.
1. Carefully remove rear cover to expose sensor control setting panel.

INSTALLATION: MOUNTING THE THERMOSUNIS WIREFREE™ RTS SENSOR TO WINDOW OR SILL
FIGURE 2
1. Attach the ‘screw-in” suction cup mounting device for Window Mount or Sill Mount (See Figure 2).
2. Determine the appropriate mounting location and clean window glass or sill area
of debris or residue. Firmly press suction cup mount onto INSIDE window (glass or sill)
positioning sensor towards the OUTSIDE of window (See Figure 3).
Window
Glass Mount
NOTE: Thermosunis sensor MUST BE mounted indoors only and should be free from obstructions
in order to correctly sense incoming light. Sill mounts may not be suitable for some window
installations. (Sensor should be mounted in front of all interior window coverings)

*When selected for use with Exterior Rolling Shutter or Exterior Shade Applications, whereby the window covering is mounted externally to the window and Thermosunis sensor, the
window covering will travel to location of sensor only. It is suggested that (Mode 1) is used to command no more than (1) window covering per sensor.
*When selected for use with Interior Window Coverings, the Thermosunis sensor will provide RTS commands to preset window covering limits

NOTE: The Thermosunis RTS Sensor is capable of providing control in accordance to Sunlight an Temperature conditions only.
Once a command is sent, the Thermosunis will not send another command until there is a change in sunlight or temperature conditions.
DEMONSTRATION MODE
Demonstration mode reduces the standard operating time delays, permitting almost an immediate operating/output response from the
Thermosunis sensor. This mode facilitates initial SUNLIGHT & TEMPERATURE sensitivity (threshold) settings and quickly demonstrates the
operation of the motorized window covering.
1. Press and hold the Mode Button until LED Indicator blinks. LED Indicator(s) will continue to blink for 30 seconds the extinguish.
1. Press and hold the Mode Button until LED Indicator blinks. LED Indicator(s) will continue to blink for 30 seconds the extinguish.
2. If necessary, adjust Sunlight and Temperature Sensitivity (Threshold) according to (STEP THREE: SETTING THE SENSOR SENSITIVITY (THRESHOLD).
LED(s) will blink during this mode. Should LED Indicator(s) extinguish prior to final setting, simply press the Mode Button momentarily to
reactivate LED Indicator(s)
3. Thermosunis sensor will provide the necessary RTS command as selected with the Function Selector Switch. (SEE STEP FOUR: OPERATION #3)
after 5 seconds of sensing Sunlight or Temperature within the set threshold.
NOTE: 1. Thermosunis will automatically default to STANDARD OPERATING MODE after 3 minutes.
2. Rotating the Sun Sensitivity (threshold) selector to a FULL COUNTERCLOCKWISE (-) position will simulate
sun if no sunlight is present. It is recommended to leave the selector (threshold setting) in this position.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
The Thermosunis WireFree™ RTS Light and Temperature Sensor uses a lithium battery
(Type: CR2430)
Rear Cover
Control Setting Panel
Sun and Temperature LED will illuminate orange when battery needs replacing.
1. Carefully remove rear cover of the Thermosunis sensor exposing the control
setting panel (See Figure 7).
Sensor Case
2. Firmly grip the molded indentations and rotate the control setting panel
counterclockwise to open.
3. Carefully separate the control setting panel from the sensor case exposing
the battery holder.
FIGURE 7
4. Replace battery with correct rated/type. Be certain of battery polarity (+) and
(-) when installing new battery.
NOTE: Do not use any tools when replacing the battery as there is a risk of
damaging the sensor circuitry.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
SOLUTION
Window covering does not
react to Thermosunis sensor
The Sensor Selector Switch is in the “OFF” position
Switch the Sensor Selector Switch to the Sun or Sun/Temp
position
Reference ”Programming: Initial Installation instructions”.
The Sensor is not programmed to the motor or RTS receiver.
Window covering moves
too frequently
Window covering reacts
incorrectly
The sunlight sensitivity (threshold) is incorrectly set.
Increase the sun sensitivity (threshold) selector to
“less sun” (-) position.
The temperature sensitivity (threshold) is incorrectly set.
Re-adjust the temperature sensitivity (threshold) accordingly
The battery is low/weak and needs replacing.
Replace battery with correct rated/type.
The Sensor cover is dirty or obstructed.
Clean cover and check for any obstructions.
The Sensor is incorrectly positioned/mounted.
Reposition Sensor to a more suitable location
Window covering may have received a subsequent
command from another RTS control (i.e., Telis
transmitter, Chronis timer, Decoflex wall switch.)
Manually command the window covering to its intended
position using another RTS control (i.e., Telis transmitter, Chronis
timer, or DecoFlex wall switch.) Sensor will eventually cycle to
its initial mode.
The Sensor is in “demo” mode.
Switch sensor to standard (default) mode, or wait 2 minutes.
Sensor will automatically default to standard mode
The sunlight/temperature sensitivity (thresholds)
may need to be adjusted.
Adjust Sun & Temperature sensitivity selector accordingly
A bright light source may be affecting the sensor.
Inspect sensor and surroundings for errant light source.
The motorized window covering (directional output)
is programmed incorrectly (in-reverse).
Confirm correct directional output of window covering via
Telis transmitter or similar device. Program necessary
corrections.
