Installing your weather station
Setting up the Remote Weather Sensors
To pair the remote sensors with the main console unit, first connect the AC/DC
adaptor with the main console and press the ‘ON’ button to power up. Keep the
sensors nearby. The procedure for pairing a sensor to the main console is as
follows:
1. Press the ‘link’ button on the main console
2. Insert the required batteries into the sensor (within 30 seconds of
pressing ‘link’).
3. The red LED on the display will light up for a second, indicating a
successful paring.
Pair the sensors within line of sight of the console unit. When pairing is
complete, mount the sensors on their designated location, but always first test
reception before permanently mounting your weather station. Transmission
range may be affected by trees, metal structures and electronic appliances.
Setting up the Main Console Unit
1. Insert 2x “AA” size 1.5V batteries. These serve as backup batteries
only, for when power is temporarily interrupted. Always use the AC/DC
adapter as well.
2. Connect the AC/DC adaptor.
3. If placing the console unit on a table or horizontal surface, set up the
table stand and you can put it on the table.
4. If mounting the console unit on a wall or vertical surface, remove the
table stand and use the fitting provided.
Placement tips:
Make sure that the console unit is within receiving range of all remote sensors.
The console unit measures indoor temperature, humidity, pressure and
receives signals from all remote sensors and radio-clock broadcasts. Avoid
9
placing the console unit in the following areas:
• Direct sunlight and surfaces which radiate and emit heat.
• Near heating and ventilation devices, such as heating ducts or air
conditioners.
• Areas with interference from wireless devices (such as cordless
phones, radio headsets, baby listening devices) and electronic
appliances.
Setting up the Thermo-Hygro Sensor(s)
1.
2.
3.
4.
Open the latch at the base of the thermo-hygro sensor.
Press the ‘link’ button on the main console.
Insert 2 x “AA” size 1.5V batteries (within 30 seconds).
Replace the latch and mount unit at desired location.
Placement tips:
•
•
•
•
•
•
The thermo-hygro sensor should be in an area with free air circulation
and sheltered from direct sunlight and other extreme weather
conditions. Place the unit in a shaded area, such as under a roof.
Use the wall mount and fittings provided if mounting the unit on a
vertical surface.
Avoid placing the sensor near sources of heat such as chimneys.
Avoid any areas which collect and radiate heat in the sun, such as
metal, brick or concrete structures, paving, patios and decks.
Ideally, place the sensor above natural surfaces such as a grassy
lawn.
The international standard height for measurements of air temperature
is at 1.25m (4 ft) above ground level.
Setting up the Rain Sensor
1. Unlock the funnel-shaped top of the rain sensor by turning both knobs
on the sides of the rain sensor in an anti-clockwise direction.
2. Press the ‘link’ button on the main console.
3. Lift the top off the base and insert 2x “AA” size 1.5V batteries into the
battery holder (within 30 seconds).
4. Replace the lid and secure into place by turning the knobs clockwise.
10
5. Place the rain sensor in a location such that precipitation can fall
directly into the sensor, ideally 2-3 ft above the ground.
6. It may be secured into place by using the four screws provided.
7. The sensor must be accurately level for optimum performance. To
check if the sensor is level, remove the lid and check if the ball bearing
inside is at the midpoint of the leveler. Additionally, a bubble level or
carpenter’s level may be used.
8. Attach the protective screen onto the top of the lid. The screen will
prevent any debris entering the sensor.
Placement tips:
•
•
•
•
The rain sensor should be placed in an open area away from walls,
fences, trees and other coverings which may either reduce the amount
of rainfall into the sensor, deflect the entry of wind-blown rain, or create
extra precipitation runoff. Trees and rooftops may also be sources of
pollen and debris.
To avoid rain shadow effects, place the sensor at a horizontal distance
corresponding to two to four times the height of any nearby obstruction.
It is important that rain excess can flow freely away from the sensor.
Make sure that water does not collect at the base of the unit.
The rainfall measurement mechanism utilizes a magnet, hence do not
place any magnetic objects around the proximity of the sensor.

Assemble the wind cups to the anemometer arm
Attach the assembled anemometer to the base.
Open the battery holder in the base by unscrewing the screws.
Make sure to disconnect the cable from the battery back that is used
by the solar panel (it might already be disconnected).
Press the ‘link’ button on the main console.
Insert 2 x “AA” size 1.5V batteries into the battery holder in the base
(within 30 seconds).
Now reconnect the cable from the battery back.
Mount the anemometer onto a vertical surface, using the fittings
provided.
11
The wind direction measurement is calibrated in the factory. If you find the wind
direction to be inaccurate, it is possible to calibrate the wind meter with the
following procedure:
a. Insert the batteries
b. Point the wind vane towards the north. Use a compass or map
if necessary.
c. Use a pin to press the “SET” key which is in the battery
compartment of the wind sensor.
Placement tips:
•
•
•
•
Check that wind can travel freely around the anemometer and is not
distorted by nearby buildings, trees or other structures.
For better results, place the anemometer at least 3m above local
structures and obstacles. The ground creates a frictional effect to wind
flow and will attenuate readings.
Aim for maximum exposure of the anemometer to the commonest wind
directions in your area.
The official mounting location for anemometers is 10m (33 ft) above
ground level in a clear unobstructed location.

Wind Mode
The wind direction is shown by an animated compass display. Its angle can be
displayed as compass points (i.e. NW) or in bearings from the north (i.e. 22.5º).
The upper left of the wind display can be set to indicate the temperature at the
anemometer or the temperature adjusted with a wind chill factor.
The lower left of the wind display indicates the average wind speed for the last
10 minutes, as well as gust, wind speed alert and gust alert information. It can
also show records of the maximum values of wind speed and gust attained for
the current day.
The wind speed and gust alert functions can be programmed to sound if the
wind speed or gust exceeds a pre-configured limit. The wind speed may be
displayed in km/h, mph, m/s or knots.
Note: The wind speed alert has a 5 mph hysteresis and the wind gust speed
alert has a 7 mph hysteresis. The hysteresis is to prevent the alerts from
sounding constantly due to small fluctuations near the alert value. This means
that after the wind speed reaches the alert value, it will have to fall below the
alert value plus the hysteresis to deactivate the alert.
Accessing Wind Mode
From the main console unit: Press UP (+) or DOWN (-) until the WIND icon on
the display starts flashing.
Configuring Wind Display
In Wind Mode, each press of SET rotates display between:
• Temperature with wind chill, wind direction in bearings
• Temperature with wind chill, wind direction in compass points
• Temperature at anemometer, wind direction in compass points
• Temperature at anemometer, wind direction in bearings

Maintenance
Changing Batteries
The battery statuses of the sensors are checked every hour. If the low battery
indicators light up, replace the batteries for the corresponding unit immediately.
Changing Batteries for the Remote Sensors
1. Replace the batteries following the setup instructions for the
corresponding sensor.
2. When the batteries are properly installed, the sensor will resume
sending signals to the main console unit.
Cleaning
The main console unit and outer casings for the remote sensors can be
cleaned with a damp cloth. Small parts can be cleaned with a cotton tip or
pipe-cleaner.
Never use any abrasive cleaning agents and solvents. Do not immerse any
units with electronic parts in water or under running water.
Anemometer
-Check that the wind vane and wind cups can spin freely and are free from dirt,
debris or spider webs.
Rain Sensor
Like all rain gauges, the rain sensor is prone to blockages due to its funnel
shape. Checking and cleaning the rain sensor from time to time will maintain
the accuracy of rain measurements.
• Detach the protective screen and lid. Remove any dirt, leaves or debris
by cleaning the items with soapy water and a damp cloth. Clean small
holes and parts with a cotton tips or pipe-cleaner.
• Look out for spiders or insects that might have crawled into the funnel.
• Also clean the swinging mechanism with a damp cloth.
34
Troubleshooting
“The display shows “0.00” for weather parameter(s)”
The display will show “0.00” when the wireless link is lost with the remote
sensor.
Check or replace the batteries for the corresponding sensor.
If the above does not solve the problem, check the wireless transmission path
from the corresponding sensor to the main console unit and change their
locations if necessary.
Although wireless signals can pass through solid objects and walls, the sensor
should ideally be within the line of sight of the console unit.
The following may be the cause of reception problems:
- Distance between remote sensor and main console unit too long.
- Signal shielding materials such as metal surfaces, concrete walls or
dense vegetation in the path of transmission.
- Interferences from wireless devices (such as cordless phones, radio
headsets, baby listening devices) and electronic appliances.
“The weather forecast is inaccurate.”
The weather forecast is a prediction of weather after 12-24 hours, and may not
reflect current weather conditions.
PRECAUTIONS
This product is engineered to give you years of satisfactory service if you
handle it carefully. Here are a few precautions:
1. Do not immerse the unit in water.
2. Do not clean the unit with abrasive or corrosive materials. They may scratch
