INSTALLATION / USE

INSTALLATION

WEATHER STATION

Place the weather station on a flat horizontal surface.

SENSOR
The sensor can be installed:

  • either on the wall using a screw (not included). Hang the sensor through the hole on the back.
  • or horizontally
    To connect it to the weather station, proceed as follows:
  • Press the (UP) button to select the transmission channel (19) on which the slider within the batteries compartment of the sensor has been placed.
  • Press and hold the (UP) button for 2 seconds to start searching for the sensor signal. The corresponding indicator will then flash on the display for 3 minutes to indicate that it is being detected.
  • Once the connection is established, the indicator will stop flashing and the outdoor temperature reading will appear on the display.

NOTE: if no signal can be detected, the weather station will automatically restart a search the next hour. If it fails to detect the sensor signal after several attempts, press and hold the (UP) button again for 2 seconds to reset the search.
For best results:

  • Do not expose the sensor to direct sunlight or moisture.
  • Do not place the sensor more than 10 metres away from the weather station.
  • Minimise obstacles (doors, walls and furniture) between the sensor and the weather station.
  • Keep the sensor away from metal or electronic objects.

  • Then press the (UP) button to deactivate the alarm snooze.

COMFORT LEVEL
Here is the meaning of the different comfort levels:

  • HUMI (= humid): humidity above 70%
  • GOOD (= comfort): indoor temperature between 20°C-28°C and humidity between 40% – 70%
  • DRY (=dry): humidity below 40%

BACKLIGHTING

  • If the weather station is plug into a power source with the supplied USB cable, the screen backlight will be constant.
  • If it is powered by batteries, the screen backlight is turned off to save energy. It is necessary to press the (LIGHT) button to activate it for 5 seconds.
