FUNCTION OF BUTTONS

FUNCTION OF BUTTONS

DEFAULT SETTINGS

When the device is first plugged in, the default settings are as follows:

  • Default time: 2015 / 12:00 / Thursday
  • Default temperature: °F
  • Barometer unit: hPa
  • Weather forecast: Partly Sunny

GETTING STARTED

  • Place 2 AA batteries (not included) into the wireless weather sensor.
  • Place or hang the sensor outdoors.
  • The range is 150 ft. (50m) unobstructed. The wireless range may be reduced by trees, walls, windows, etc.
  • Do not place sensor in direct sunlight as this will give you an inaccurate temperature reading.

When you first insert batteries or plug in the device, you will hear 1 beep, then the device will go into a self-test mode, then RF receiving mode (for weather sensor), followed by RCC receiving mode (to sync with U.S. Atomic clock). This will take about 3 minutes.

Note: If you would like the clock to set itself, simply leave it alone and it should sync overnight with the U.S. Atomic Clock. Or, you may set it manually with the following steps.

TIME SETTING MODE

  • In the time display mode, Press “MODE” for 2 seconds to enter time setting.

INDOOR TEMPERATURE

  • The indoor temperature range is 0 °C / 32 °F to 50 °C / 122 °F.
  • Testing cycle: 30 seconds
  • Temperature resolution +/- 2 °F
  • If the current temperature exceeds the maximum temperature, the device will display the maximum temperature.
  • If the current temperature is below the minimum temperature, the device will display the minimum temperature.

OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE

  • The outdoor temperature range is -30 °C / -32 °F ~ +60 °C / 140 °F
  • Temperature resolution +/- 2 °F
  • If the current temperature exceeds the maximum temperature, the device will display the maximum temperature.
  • If the current temperature is below the minimum temperature, the device will display the minimum temperature.

TEMPERATURE TRENDS

The device checks the temperature for trends every 30 minutes, comparing the current temperature with the temperature from 3 hours ago.

  • If the temperature rises 1 °C / 2 °F, the device will display an upward arrow.
  • If the temperature drops 1 °C / 2 °F, the device will display a downward arrow.
  • If the temperature stays within 1 °C / 2 °F, the device will display a horizontal arrow.

RECEIVING RF AND RCC SIGNALS

The device will register RF signal for 3 minutes automatically when powered by battery, then enter RCC receiving.
In RF registration process, the antenna symbol increases as follows:

  • When it registers the RF signal successfully, it will display the maximum signal .
  • During the sync process, if receive fails once, then the signal will change to .
  • If synchronization continues to fail, the last antenna symbol will be displayed .
  • If the RF register fails or loses signal for more than 1 hour, the antenna symbol will flash .
  • If RF synchronization failures reach one hour, then automatically open long receiving mode (3 minutes), antenna symbol progressive increase (reserved ID).
  • If RF synchronization failure more than 1 hour, and long receiving also fails; then the display is temperature digit 3 seconds, 1 second switch.
  • If RF synchronization failure more than 2 hours, automatically open long receiving mode (3 minutes) to clear ID every hour.
  • When RF temperature is 15.8°F to 30.2°F, the device will display 28.4°F. When RF temperature is below 14° F, the device will display 10.4°F.

TO CLEAR AND RESET ALL DATA: In standard mode, press “DOWN/CH” to switch channel, hold “DOWN/ CH” button to re-register the RF (clear ID and all RF data). You will then receive new data.

WEATHER FORECAST GRAPHICS

WEATHER FORECAST GRAPHICS

TIP: The Color Weather Station requires approximately 12 hours to become familiar with your elevation and barometric pressure. Please allow at least 12 hours for it to provide its first forecast. Additionally, please keep in mind that this device provides the forecast for the NEXT 12 hours. The graphic icon may not match the current conditions outside.

BAROMETER UNITS

  • This device can predict the coming weather by sensing changes in barometric pressure.
  • The default barometer unit is hPa (hectopascals)
  • To switch the barometer from hPa to inHg (inches of mercury):
  • When you are in setting mode, press the “MODE” button to find the setting
    barometer units (hPa/inHg).
  • Press “UP” or “DOWN” to change the unit.
  • If the barometer rises or drops 2 hPa within one hour, the unit will display an up or down arrow. If the barometer changes less than 2 hPa, the unit displays a horizontal arrow.
