Installation
The Honeywell Professional Weather Station TE923W 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, UV
(ultraviolet) 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 in the
open area from 100 feet (30 meters) for anemometer and rain gauge; and up to 328 feet (100
meters) for thermo-hygrometer and UV sensors.
Remote UV sensor, anemometer and a rain gauge must be placed outdoors to measure weather
elements.
Remote thermo-hygrometer can be placed indoors or outdoors, depending on the area where the
temperature and humidity are intended to be measured. If you intend measuring outdoor
temperature and humidity, place the remote sensor outdoors.
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.

Operations and Window Selection
Pressure and Weather Forecast Window
Your weather station is designed to display (local) barometric pressure, sea level pressure, weather
forecast and moon phases. Historical statistics can also be viewed, including the sea-level
pressure for the past 24 hours, moon phase for the past and following 39 days, and a selectable
bar-chart for viewing pressure/ temperature & humidity history. Pressure is displayed inHg (English),
hPa/mBar (scientific) or mmHg (metric). Altitude is displayed in meters or feet.
The weather station is designed to measure local pressure and calculate the other two parameters
based on the Local Pressure.
Sea Level Pressure and Altitude are interdependent. If you adjust altitude, it will calculate sea level
pressure, if you adjust sea level pressure, it will automatically calculate altitude. You can only
adjust one of the two – either sea level barometric pressure or altitude.
If you wish to know pressure changes at your specific location (house), the LOCAL barometric
pressure should be selected In this case, the local altitude/elevation must be programmed
according to GPS readings, Internet, etc.
If you wish to know pressure changes in your surrounding metro area, then SEA LEVEL
barometric pressure option should be selected. In this case, the SEA LEVEL barometric pressure
value can be adjusted according to the local metro area weather information. (Sources – local TV
25
or radio station, etc).

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 throughout the 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 main unit 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.
NOTE: At the time of the initial reception allow at least 24 hours for the atomic time receiver
to pick up the signal. In some cases, depending on the location, it may take up to 72 hours
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.
32
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 Window
The weather station supports up to 5 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.
The main unit can be programmed to alarm if the temperature exceeds or falls below the pre-set
upper and lower limits on all remote channels. The limits are the same for all remote channels
Thermo-Hygrometer remote battery status is monitored on the main unit.
Note: The temperature alarms have a 0.5 ºC deviation to prevent them from sounding due to small
temperature fluctuations that are close to the set alarm value. This means that after the temperature
reaches the alarm temperature, it will have to fall below the alarm temperature plus the deviation of
(0.5°C) to activate the alarm.
Comfort Level Indication
The main unit is capable of detecting and displaying the current indoor comfort levels of
surrounding environment. The comfort level based on the combination of the current indoor
