LIABILITY DISCLAIMER
•
The manufacturer and supplier cannot accept any responsibility for any incorrect readings and any
consequences that occur should an inaccurate reading take place.
Note:
Remember when resetting, both units have to be reset and to always begin by insert the battery into the

direct rain and sunshine. Before securing in place, please ensure that the Temperature Station can receive the
433 MHz signal from the Temperature Transmitter at the positions that you wish to situate them.
POSITIONING THE WEATHER STATION
POSITIONING THE OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE TRANSMITTER
The Temperature Transmitter is supplied with a holder that may be attached to
a wall with the three screws supplied. To attach to the wall, please follow the
steps below:
1.
Mark the wall using a pen through the holes in the holder to obtain the
exact drilling position.
2.
Drill holes in the wall at the points marked.
3.
Screw holder onto wall.
There is also double sided tape included with the wall mount. 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, double glazing, etc.). Choose a sheltered place. Avoid
The Weather station comes with a removable table stand, which provides the option of table
standing or wall mounting the unit. Before wall mounting, please check that the outdoor
temperature(s) can be received from the desired location(s). To wall mount:
1.
Fix a screw (not supplied) into the desired wall, leaving the head extended out the by about
5mm.
2.
Remove the stand from the Temperature station by pulling it away from the base and hang
the station onto the screw. Remember to ensure that it locks into place before releasing.
BATTERIES REPLACEMENT:
For best performance, batteries to both units should be replaced at least once and a year and at the same time
to maintain the best running accuracy. Ensure that the batteries used are new of the correct size.
Please help in the preservation of the environment and return used batteries to an authorized
depot.
OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE READING
The outdoor temperature reading is on the bottom line of the LCD under the weather icons. The Weather
Station will automatically start scanning for the outdoor temperature via 433 MHz frequency once the batteries
are inserted.
Note:
Should the outdoor temperature not be received within one minute after inserting the batteries into the Weather
Station, then see 433 MHz reception below.
433 MHz RECEPTION
In normal surroundings (for example away from interfering sources such as TV sets), the outdoor temperature
can usually be received within one minute. The transmitter updates the outdoor temperature every minute after
the batteries are inserted and the Weather Station reads the outdoor temperature from the transmitter 2 times in
every 10 minutes
If the outdoor temperature is not displayed on the LCD within one minute, then check the following:
1.
2.
3.
The distance of the units should be at least 1.5 - 2.0 metres 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 product such as headphones and speakers that operate on the same signal (433
MHz) can prevent the transmission pick up.
4.
5
6.
Neighbours using electrical products operating on the 433 MHz signal can also cause interference. In
most severe cases, the 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.
In such environments, place the Weather Station closer to a window or point its front or back in the
general direction of transmitter (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 (for example under -25ºC) for an extended period of time then the
temperature signal may be weakened. Please bear this in mind when positioning the transmitter (see
Maintenance below).
Note:
Should after checking the above points, the outdoor temperature is still not be received, then reset the units (see
Resetting below).
RESETTING
Remove the batteries from both the Weather Station and the transmitter
Wait at least 30 seconds and repeat the procedures specified in Setting up above otherwise transmission start
up problems may occur.
For every sudden or significant change in the air pressure, the weather icons will update weather icons
accordingly to represent this 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 to register. However, this does apply if the icons displayed
are a sun or raining clouds because the weather icons are then already at their extremes points. For example,
there will be no change of icon if the weather gets better when sunny icon is already displayed on the LCD or
any worse when the raining clouds icon is displayed.
The icons displayed forecasts the weather in to 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 rain.
Note:
After setting up, it is recommended that Weather Station not be moved and that readings for the weather
forecast be discarded for the next 12-24 hours. This will allow sufficient time for it to operate at a constant
altitude and in time, result in an more accurate weather 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)
forecasting is more accurate compared to use in areas where the weather is stagnant most of the time (for
example mostly sunny).
If the Weather Station is moved to another location significantly higher or lower than its initial standing point (for
example from the ground to the first floor of a house), discard weather forecasts for the next 12 to 24 hours or
reset the units (see Resetting below). 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.
THE WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR
Working together with the weather icons are the weather tendency indicators (located above and below the
weather icons). When the indicator points upwards, it means that the air-pressure has increased and the
weather is expected to improve. When indicator points downwards, the air-pressure has dropping and the
weather is expected to become worse.
Taking this into account, we can see how the weather has changed and is expected to change. For example, if
the downwards indicator and the cloud and sun icons are displayed, 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.
Note:
Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a reading, it will remain permanently visualized on the LCD.
If the weather is sunny and the sun icon is displayed with the tendency indicator pointing upwards, it means that
the weather is expected to remain good. If the cloud with rain icons appear with the tendency indicator is
pointing downwards, then weather is not expected to improve but not necessarily rain.
When setting up, always remember to insert the battery into the transmitter first as this will activate transmitter's
433 MHz signal ready for the Weather Station to receive.
