Proper placement of both the display and wired temperature sensor are critical to the accuracy and performance of this product. Place the display in a dry area free of dirt and dust. Display stands upright for tabletop use, is wall-mountable or magnet-mountable. To observe outdoor temperatures, the wired sensor must be placed outside. The sensor can be securely mounted by using the adhesive pad or the integrated hang hole. Take care not to damage the wired sensor during mounting. Important Placement Guidelines • To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place display and wired sensor out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources or vents. • The wired temperature sensor is not waterproof and is not intended for permanent submersion in liquids. Submersion in liquid for more than 30 seconds may result in failure of the wired sensor. High & Low Records High and low records are displayed for INDOOR (display) temperature and humidity and OUTDOOR (sensor) temperature. High and low records are available from the past 24 hour time period or over all-time. All-time high and low records reflect the minimum and maximum readings since the unit was powered on, since the batteries were changed, or since the unit was manually reset – whichever event was the most recent. During Manual Mode (page 4), you can cycle through readings and high/low records by pressing the “SELECT” button. Data is displayed in the following order: CURRENT TEMPERATURE - OUTDOOR (sensor) CURRENT TEMPERATURE - INDOOR (display) CURRENT HUMIDITY - INDOOR (display) 24-HOUR LOW TEMPERATURE - OUTDOOR (sensor) 24-HOUR LOW TEMPERATURE - INDOOR (display) 24-HOUR LOW HUMIDITY - INDOOR (display) 24-HOUR HIGH TEMPERATURE - OUTDOOR (sensor) 24-HOUR HIGH TEMPERATURE - INDOOR (display) 24-HOUR HIGH HUMIDITY - INDOOR (display) ALL-TIME LOW TEMPERATURE - OUTDOOR (sensor) ALL-TIME LOW TEMPERATURE - INDOOR (display) ALL-TIME LOW HUMIDITY - INDOOR (display) ALL-TIME HIGH TEMPERATURE - OUTDOOR (sensor) ALL-TIME HIGH TEMPERATURE - INDOOR (display) ALL-TIME HIGH HUMIDITY - INDOOR (display) To manually reset any record, first view the record, then press and HOLD the “°F/°C” button, located inside the battery compartment, for 5 seconds.
