SETUP
WHEN ONE TRANSMITTER IS USED
1.
First, insert the batteries in the transmitter (see “How to install and
replace batteries in the Thermo-hygro outdoor transmitter” on
page 11).
2.
Within 2 minutes of powering up the transmitter, insert the batteries
in the Weather Station (see “How to install and replace batteries
in the Weather Station” on pages 11-12). Once the batteries are
in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly and a short
signal tone will sound. Following the indoor temperature/humidity
and the time, as 12:00 will be displayed. If this information is not
displayed on the LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries and
wait for at least 60 seconds before reinserting them. Once the
indoor data is displayed user may proceed to the next step.
3.
After the batteries are inserted, the Weather station will start
receiving data signal from the transmitter. The outdoor temperature
and humidity data should then be displayed on the Weather station.
If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the batteries will need to be
removed from both units and reset from step 1.
4.
The distance between the Weather Station and the transmitter
Note: In the event of changing batteries of the units, ensure the batteries
do not spring free from the contacts. Always wait at least 1 minute after

The outdoor temperature and humidity data from the first
transmitter (channel 1) and the signal reception icon should be
displayed on the Weather Station. If this does not happen after 2
minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and
reset from step 1.
Insert the batteries in the second transmitter as soon as the signal
reception icon and outdoor data are displayed on the Weather
Station. Then within 2 minutes, the channel 2 outdoor data from the
second transmitter and the "channel 2" icon should be displayed on
the Weather Station. If this does not happen after 2 minutes, the
batteries will need to be removed from all the units and reset from
step 1.
Note : User shall insert the batteries into the second transmitter
within 45 seconds after the Weather Station displays the
information of the first transmitter.
Insert the batteries in the third transmitter as soon as the "channel
2" icon and outdoor data are displayed on the Weather Station.
Then within 2 minutes, the channel 3 outdoor data from the third
transmitter will be displayed and the channel icon will shift back to
"1" once the third transmitter is successfully received. If this is not
happen, user shall restart the setting up from step 1.
7
User shall remove all the batteries from the Weather Station and
transmitters, and wait 60 seconds.
Insert the batteries in the first transmitter.
Within 2 minutes of powering up the first transmitter, insert the
batteries in the Weather Station. Once the batteries are in place, all
segments of the LCD will light up briefly and a short signal tine will
sound. Following the indoor temperature/humidity and the time as
12:00 will be displayed. If this information is not displayed on the
LCD after 60 seconds, remove the batteries from both units and
wait for at least 60 seconds before reinserting them.

7.
Note : User shall insert the batteries into the third transmitter within
45 seconds after the Weather Station displays the information of
the first transmitter. Or immediately after reception of the second
transmitter is finished.
The distance between the Weather Station and the transmitter
should not be more than 300 feet to ensure sufficient 915 MHz
transmission. (see notes on “Positioning” and “915 MHz
Reception”).
IMPORTANT:
Transmission problems will arise if the setting for additional sensors is not
followed as described above. Should transmission problems occur, it is
necessary to remove the batteries from all units and start again the set-up
from step 1.
Notes:

If the signal reception is not successful on the first frequency of
915MHz for 45 seconds, the frequency is changed to 920MHz and
the learning is tried for another 45 seconds. If it is still not
successful the reception is tried for 45 seconds on 910MHz. This
will also be done during re-synchronization.


When the weather station is receiving the WWVB time signal, the
outdoor transmitter data signal will temporarily not be received by
the weather station. During this short period of time, the outdoor
readings shown on the weather station will not be renewed until the
WWVB time signal is successfully received.

ABOUT WWVB RADIO CONTROLLED TIME
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology—Time and
Frequency Division) WWVB radio station is located in Ft. Collins,
Colorado, and transmits the exact time signal continuously throughout the
United States at 60 kHz. The signal can be received up to 2,000 miles
away through the internal antenna in the weather projection station.
However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very
limited during daylight hours. The wireless weather station will search for
a signal every night when reception is best.
The Weather Station and the Thermo-hygro transmitter need to be reset
when one of the following conditions occur:

Unsuccessful 915 MHz signal reception.

Malfunction on the units.

Batteries replacement.
For resetting, remove all batteries from the units. Wait at least for 1
minute before powering up the Weather station again. Proceed from step
1 in “Setting Up”.
The WWVB radio station receives the time data from the NIST Atomic
clock in Boulder, Colorado. A team of atomic physicists is continually
measuring every second, of every day, to an accuracy of ten billionths of
a second per day. These physicists have created an international
standard, measuring a second as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of a Cesium133 atom in a vacuum. For more detail, visit
http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq.htm. To listen to the NIST time, call
(303)499-7111. This number will connect you to an automated time,
announced at the top of the minute in “Coordinated Universal Time”,
which is also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This time does not
follow Daylight Saving Time changes. After the top of the minute, a tone
11
12
DEVICE RESET
will sound for every second. It is possible that your wireless weather
station may not be exactly on the second due to the variance in the
quartz. However, the clock will adjust the quartz timing over the course of
several days to be very accurate; under 0.10 seconds per day.

WEATHER FORECASTING ICONS:
Weather icons in the third section of LCD can be displayed in any of the
following combinations:
Sunny
FORECAST
FORECAST
Cloudy with sunny intervals
Rainy
For every sudden or significant change in the air pressure, the weather
icons will update accordingly to represent the change in weather. If the
icons do not change, then it means either the air pressure has not
changed or the change has been too slow for the Weather station to
register. If the icon displayed is a sun or raining cloud, there will be no
change of icon if the weather gets any better (with sunny icon) or worse
(with rainy icon), since the icons are already at their extremes.

only) they were recorded press the IN key:.
Once to show the MAX indoor temperature and humidity
data with the recorded time and date.
Twice to show the MIN indoor temperature and humidity data
with the recorded time and date.

Once the MIN or MAX data is displayed, press and hold the SET
key for 3 seconds to reset the respective MIN or MAX record to
current temperature and humidity data, and current time, date
display.

Note: The MIN or MAX data needs to be reset individually.
FORECAST
A happy face icon “” indicating a temperature
level between 68*F and 78.6 *F (20°C and 25.9°C)
and relative humidity reading between 45% and
65%.
A sad face icon “” indicating any value outside the
comfortable range.
The icons displayed forecast the weather in terms of getting better or
worse and not necessarily sunny or rainy as each icon indicates. For
example, if the current weather is cloudy and the rainy icon is displayed, it
does not mean that the product is faulty because it is not raining. It simply
means that the air pressure has dropped and the weather is expected to
get worse but not necessarily rainy.
Note:
After setting up, readings for weather forecasts should be disregarded for
the next 48-60 hours. This will allow sufficient time for the Weather station
to collect air pressure data at a constant altitude and therefore result in a
more accurate forecast.
Common to weather forecasting, absolute accuracy cannot be
guaranteed. The weather forecasting feature is estimated to have an
accuracy level of about 75% due to the varying areas the Weather station
has been designed for use in. In areas that experience sudden changes
in weather (for example from sunny to rain), the Weather station will be
more accurate compared to use in areas where the weather is constant
most of the time (for example mostly sunny).
32
If the Weather station is moved to another location significantly higher or
lower than its initial standing point (for example from the ground floor to
the upper floors of a house), discard the weather forecast for the next 4860 hours. By doing this, the Weather Station will not mistake the new
location as being a possible change in air-pressure when really it is due
to the slight change of altitude.
Note: Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a change in air
pressure, it will remain permanently displayed on the LCD.
AIR PRESSURE HISTORY (ELECTRONIC BAROMETER WITH
BAROMETRIC PRESSURE TREND)
The third section of the LCD also shows the relative air pressure value
and the air pressure history.
WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR
Working together with the weather icons are the weather tendency
indicators (located on the left and right sides of the weather icons). When
the indicator points upwards, it means that the air-pressure is increasing
and the weather is expected to improve. When the indicator points
downwards, the air-pressure is dropping and the weather is expected to
become worse.
Taking this into account, one can see how the weather has changed and
is expected to change. For example, if the indicator is pointing
downwards together with cloud and sun icons, then the last noticeable
change in the weather was when it was sunny (the sun icon only).
Therefore, the next change in the weather will be cloud with rain icons
since the indicator is pointing downwards.
Air pressure over the last 24 hours
The bar chart indicates the air pressure history trend over the last 24
hours in 7 steps, 0h, -3h, -6h, -9h, -12h, -18h, and -24h. The “0h”
represents the current full hour air pressure recording. The columns
represent the “hPa” (0, ±2, ±4, ±6) at specific time. The “0” in the middle
of this scale is equal to the current pressure and each change (±2, ±4, ±6)
represents how high or low in “hPa“ the past pressure was compared to
the current pressure.
33
34
If the bars are rising it means that the weather is getting better due to the
increase of air pressure. If the bars go down, it means the air pressure
has dropped and the weather is expected to get worse from the present
time “0h“.
To toggle between the current outdoor and the MAX/MIN outdoor
temperature and humidity data and the times (for temperature data
only) they were recorded press the OUT/+ key:
- Once to show the MAX outdoor temperature and humidity data
with the recorded time and date.
- Twice to show the MIN outdoor temperature and humidity data
with the recorded time and date.
- Three times to return to the current displayed values.
2.
Once the MIN or MAX data is displayed, press and hold the SET
key for 3 seconds to reset the respective MIN or MAX record to
current temperature and humidity data, and current time, date
display.
Note: The MIN or MAX data needs to be reset individually.
Note:
For accurate barometric pressure trends, the Weather Station should
operate at the same altitude. For example, it should not be moved from
the ground to the second floor of the house. Should the unit be moved to
a new location, discard readings for the next 48-60 hours.

LOW BATTERY INDICATOR
Low battery indicator is displayed on the LCD when the batteries in the
weather station require changing.
ABOUT THE OUTDOOR TRANSMITTER
The range of the Thermo-hygro transmitter may be affected by the
temperature. At cold temperatures, the transmitting distance may be
decreased. Please keep this in mind when positioning the transmitters.
Battery power may be reduced for the Thermo-hygro transmitter at cold
temperatures.
37
happen accidentally, reset all units (see “Setting up” above), or
transmission problems may occur.
The transmission range is around 300 feet from the Thermo-hygro
transmitter to the Weather station (in open space). However, this
depends on the surrounding environment and interference levels. If no
reception is possible despite the observation of these factors, all system
units have to be reset (see “Setting up” above).
POSITIONING THE WEATHER STATION
The Weather station provides the option of table standing or
wall mounting the unit. Before wall mounting, please check
that the outdoor data can be received from the desired
locations.
TO WALL MOUNT:
1. Fix a screw (not supplied) into the desired wall, leaving
the head extended out by about 0.2” (5mm).
2. Place the weather station onto the screw, using the
hanging hole on the backside. Gently pull the weather
station down to lock the screw into place.

CHECKING FOR 915MHz RECEPTION
If the outdoor temperature and humidity data are not being received
within three minutes after setting up (or outdoor display always show “-. -” in the outdoor section of the Weather station during normal
operation), please check the following points:
1.
The distance of the Weather station or transmitters should be at
least 5 to 6.5 feet (1.5 to 2 meters) away from any interfering
sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.
2.
Avoid placing the transmitters onto or in the immediate proximity of
metal window frames.
3.
Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers
operating on the 915MHz-signal frequency may prevent correct
signal transmission or reception. Neighbors using electrical devices
operating on the 915MHz-signal frequency can also cause
interference.
Note: When the 915MHz signal is received correctly, do not re-open the
battery cover of either the transmitter or Weather station, as the batteries
may spring free from the contacts and force a false reset. Should this
38
FOLDOUT TABLE STANDS:
The foldout table stands legs are located on the
backside. Simply unfold the stands on the back. Once
the foldout table stands are extended, place the weather
station in an appropriate location.
POSITIONING THE THERMO/HYGRO TRANSMITTER:
The remote thermo/hygro transmitter can be placed onto
any flat surface or wall mounted using the bracket which
doubles as a stand or wall mount base.
TO WALL MOUNT:
1. Secure the bracket onto a desired
wall using the screws and plastic anchors.
40
2.
Clip the remote temperature transmitter onto the
bracket.
Note:
The mounting surface can affect the transmission range. If, for instance,
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 to
place the unit on any metal surfaces or in any position where a large
metal or highly polished surface is in the immediate vicinity (garage
doors, double glazing, etc.). Before securing in place, please ensure that
the Temperature Station can receive the 915MHz signal from the
temperature transmitter at the positions that you wish to place them.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE:


Extreme temperatures, vibrations and shocks should be avoided as
these may cause damage to the unit and give inaccurate forecasts
and readings.
When cleaning the display and casings, use a soft damp cloth only.
Do not use solvents or scouring agents as they may mark the LCD
and casings.




Do not submerge the units in water. Furthermore, fix all parts in
place where the units are adequately protected against moisture
and rain.
Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and
damage. Replace only with new batteries of the recommended
type.
Do not make any repair attempts to the unit. Return them to their
original point of purchase for repair by a qualified engineer.
Opening and tampering with the unit may invalidate their
guarantee.
Do not expose the units to extreme and sudden temperature
changes, this may lead to rapid changes in forecasts and readings
and thereby reduce their accuracy.
