INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting the Wind & Weather Weather & Wind Station.
This device combines precise time-keeping with monitoring and
displaying wind speed information and temperature/humidity data from
up to five remote locations.
In this package you will find:
• One main unit (receiver) ID3787
• One three-channel remote temperature and humidity sensor
(transmitter) ID8533
• One Wind Speed Meter (transmitter)
• Mounting Hardware with wrench tool for Wind Speed Meter
• One User Manual
Please keep this manual handy as you use your new item. It contains
practical step-by-step instructions, as well as technical specifications
and precautions you should know.
INSTALLATION
The Wind & Weather Weather & Wind Station operates at 433MHz radio
frequency, so no wire installation is required between the main unit
(receiver) and the remote sensors (transmitters).
The remote sensors include a temperature and humidity sensor
and a wind speed sensor (anemometer). 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 the wind
speed meter, and up to 328 feet (100 meters) for temperature and
humidity sensor.
The remote wind speed meter must be placed outdoors to measure
and transmit wind speed data. The remote thermo-hygrometer(s) 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 remote weather
sensors BEFORE setting up the main unit.
NOTE: It is critical to power up and test communication between 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 (if any) from LCD display.
• During initial setup, place the remote sensors close to the main
unit.
• After reception is established (all remote readings will appear on
the main unit’s display), position the remote sensors and the main
unit within the effective transmission range: 328 feet (100 meters)
for temperature/humidity sensors and 100 feet (30 meters) for
wind speed meter. Ideally they should be placed within the lineof-sight from the main unit. See placement tips in the User Manual
for each remote sensor.
• Transmission/reception range may be affected by trees, metal
structures, electronic appliances, by surrounding building materials, and by the way the receiver (main unit) and transmitters
(remote sensors) are positioned.
• The main unit must be placed indoors.
• Place the remote sensor so that it faces 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 sensor 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 remote sensors are easily accessible for
cleaning and maintenance. We recommend cleaning the remote sensors periodically, as dirt and debris may affect their accuracy.

• Use the wall mount hardware and screws when mounting the
thermo-hygrometer sensor on the wall
PLACEMENT
• The remote thermo-hygrometer sensor should be placed in the
area with a free air circulation and sheltered from direct sunlight
and extreme weather conditions.
• Ideally, place the thermo-hygrometer sensor above natural surfaces (such as a lawn).
• Avoid placing the thermo-hygrometer sensor near sources of
heat, such as chimneys and heating elements.
• Avoid any areas collecting and radiating heat from the sun, such
as metal, brick, or concrete structures such as pavement, patios
or decks.
• The international standard for the valid air temperature measurements is 4 feet (1.25 meters) above the ground.
OPERATION
Immediately after batteries are correctly installed, the remote sensor
will start transmitting temperature and humidity data to the main unit.

USING DIFFERENT DISPLAY WINDOWS
PRESSURE WINDOW
• Indicates the current barometric pressure, sea level pressure,
weather forecast, and moon phase.
• Displays a number of historical statistics: sea-level pressure for
the past 24 hours, moon phase for the past and future 39 days,
and pressure/ temperature/ humidity history bar chart.
• Pressure can be set in inHg, hPa/mBar or mmHg, and altitude can
be set in meters or feet.
IMPORTANT: There are two options available for barometric pressure
viewing: SEA LEVEL or LOCAL. We suggest programming only one
option.
If you wish to know pressure changes at your specific location
(such as your home), then 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.
14
In this case, the SEA LEVEL barometric pressure value can be adjusted
according to the local metro area weather information. (Sources – local
TV 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 nighttime 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-walled rooms such as basements or office buildings, the received signal may be weakened. Always place the 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.
After the clock is set manually, place the main unit by the window
for better reception. The atomic clock receiver is programmed so that it
will continue to search for the atomic time signal daily during the hours
between 1:00 am and 4:30 am. 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.

generate all of the correct data for specified location.
If you cannot find the closest city code or would like to enter your
specific location, select “USR” as the city code during the setup. A
search function is also available. It allows viewing the sunrise/sunset
times for different dates.

TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY WINDOW
The Weather & Wind Station supports up to 5 remote thermo-hygrometers, with each corresponding to a separate channel of the temperature and relative humidity display. The temperature can be displayed in
Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F).
The main unit carries the temperature and humidity sensor and
uses this data to calculate an indoor comfort level: Wet, Comfort, or
Dry.
A temperature alert function is available for each channel. It can be
programmed to sound if the channel temperature exceeds or falls below the pre-set upper and lower limits.
