INITIAL SETUP

SETUP STEP 1: RECEIVER BOX SETUP.

  • Follow wiring instructions to connect the RECEIVER to your appliance.
  • Plug the receiver into a powered electrical outlet.
  • If required, set your appliance to be responsive to the thermostat (using settings such as AUTO/OFF or HI/LO –
    NOT “Manual”). Note: some appliances only operate by thermostat.
  • Slide the ON/OFF/REMOTE slide button to ON and verify that the appliance has turned on. If not, check the
    wiring and verify that the appliance is plugged into an electrical out (if required).
  • Slide the ON/OFF/REMOTE slide button to OFF. Your appliance will turn off and/or indicate that it has received a
    thermostat shutdown signal. (Note: Pellet stove operation varies, the stove may remain on for some period of
    time before shutting down).
  • Slide the ON/OFF/REMOTE slide button to REMOTE

SETUP STEP 2: Install the batteries into the handheld Transmitter. Install 4 “AAA” batteries in the handheld
Transmitter. Be sure the batteries are installed with the (+) and (-) ends facing the correct direction. When you start up
the remote, if a low battery signal appears or if the LCD screen does not illuminate when you touch it, check battery
position and that the batteries are fully charged.

SETUP STEP 3: Check that you are not in Child “LOCK-OUT” mode (CP)
This remote control includes a CHILDPROOF “LOCK-OUT” feature that allows the user to “LOCKOUT”
operation of the appliance from the handheld Transmitter. To activate the “LOCK-OUT”
feature, simultaneously press and hold the UP icon on the touchscreen and the [SET] button for 5
seconds. The Lock icon will appear on the LCD screen.

To disengage the “LOCK-OUT”, simultaneously press and hold the UP icon on the touchscreen and the [SET] button until the Lock icon disappears from the LCD screen. This will return the transmitter to normal operation.

When the Transmitter is in “LOCK-OUT” mode, programmed functions will continue without interruption; only manual functions are prevented.

SETUP STEP 4: Synchronize the Receiver to the handheld Transmitter.
To synchronize the security codes between the transmitter and the receiver:

  • Slide the ON/OFF/REMOTE slide switch to the REMOTE position.
  • Slide one end of a paper clip into the small hole below the word “LEARN” to reach the Learn button inside the
    receiver box.
  • Using the paper clip, press and release the LEARN button inside the box – you will hear a BEEP.
  • Within 5 seconds, press the [MODE] button on the transmitter, and you will hear several short beeps which
    indicate that the transmitter’s code has been programmed into the receiver.

SETUP STEP 5: Set oF / oC Scale
The factory setting for temperature is ºF. To toggle between ºF and ºC, simultaneously press and hold the UP and
DOWN icons on the touchscreen. NOTE: When changing between the ºF and ºC scales, the set temperature defaults to
the lowest temperature (45 ºF, or 6 ºC).

SETUP STEP 6: System Check Each click of the [MODE] button will toggle the remote control through the 3 operation modes: ON, OFF, and THERMO.
To toggle to the ON mode, click the [MODE] button on the transmitter. If THERMON, THERMOFF or OFF is displayed at
the top of the LCD screen, click the [MODE] button 1 – 2 more times until the word ON appears in the top left corner of
the display. The appliance should turn on. If the appliance does not turn on, go back to SETUP STEP 1.

SETUP STEP 7: Set the current date and time.

  • Press and hold the [SET] button for 5 seconds. The hour section will begin to flash.
  • Use the UP & DOWN icons on the touchscreen to select the hour, then press the [SET] button.
  • The minutes will flash. Use the UP & DOWN icons on the touchscreen to select the minute, then press the [SET]
    button.
  • AM PM will flash. Use the UP & DOWN icons on the touchscreen to select AM or PM, then press the [SET]
    button.
  • One of the days of the week will flash (above the clock). Select the correct day by pressing the UP & DOWN
    icons on the touchscreen then press the [SET] button. Your time will automatically be accepted.

Understanding the Communication Safety Shutoff Function / What to do if the receiver beeps
This remote control has a COMMUNICATION –SAFETY function built into its software. It provides an extra margin of
safety when the Transmitter is out of the normal 20 foot operating range of the receiver. At all times and in all OPERATING MODES, in addition to the THERMOFF or THERMON signal that is sent every 2 minutes,
the transmitter sends an RF signal every 15 minutes to the receiver indicating that the transmitter is within the normal
operating range of 20 feet. Should the receiver NOT receive a transmitter signal every 15 minutes, the receiver will begin a 2 hour (120 minute) countdown timing function. If during this 2-hour period, the receiver does not receive a
signal from the transmitter, the receiver will shut down the appliance being controlled by the receiver. The receiver will then emit a series of rapid “beeps” for a period of 10 seconds. Then after 10 seconds of rapid beeping, the receiver will continue to emit a single “beep” every 4 seconds until a transmitter [MODE] button is pressed to reset the receiver.

Understanding the Thermo-Safety Feature
PROTECTION FROM EXTREME HEAT IS VERY IMPORTANT. Like any piece of electronic equipment, the remote receiver should be kept away from temperatures exceeding 1300F. Exposure to extreme temperatures can damage the electronic components or cause the plastic case to become deformed and is not covered under warranty. A receiver located in an area, where the ambient temperature inside the case exceeds 1300F, will cause THERMO-SAFETY feature to activate and sound warning beeps. To reset the receiver and stop the warning beeps, reposition the receiver away from the heat.

PROGRAMMING SETUP

PROGRAM STEP 1: Set THERMO mode to your desired cool temperature (for example, 67o)

  • Press the [MODE] button to place the transmitter into THERM mode,SkyTech RC-110V-PROG Remote Control Thermostat User Manual
  • Press the UP or DOWN icons on the touchscreen to select the target temperature you want for cooler periods of the day (for example, 67o).

The transmitter will send either a THERMON or THERMOFF signal to the appliance every 2 minutes, based on the set temperature and the ambient temperature in the room. The temperature swing differential will determine at what temperature the room needs to drop down to before the
thermostat will send a THERMON signal. For example, if the swing is 2o, the room will drop to 65o before the thermostat will call for heat when the THERMO mode is set to 67o.

Note: The highest set temperature is 99 ºF.

PROGRAM STEP 2: Setting the Temperature Swing Differential
The THERMO Mode on the transmitter operates the appliance whenever the room temperature varies a certain number
of degrees from the set temperature. This variation is called the “SWING” or TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL. The factory
preset swing temperature is 2oF. To change the “Swing Setting:”

  • Simultaneously press the [SET] button and the DOWN icon on the touchscreen to display the current “swing”
    setting in the set temp frame. The letter “S” will display in the room temp frame on the LCD screen.
  • Press the UP or DOWN icon on the touchscreen to adjust the “SWING” temperature (1o-3o F).
  • Press the [SET] button to store the “swing” setting.

PROGRAM STEP 3: Plan your programs

WARNING
THIS REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM MUST BE INSTALLED EXACTLY AS OUTLINED IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS. READ ALL
INSTRUCTIONS COMMPLETELY BEFORE ATTEMPTING INSTALLATION. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY DURING
INSTALLATION. ANY MODIFICATION OF THIS REMOTE CONTROL OR ANY OF ITS COMPONENTS WILL VOID THE WARRANTY
AND MAY POSE A FIRE HAZARD.

GENERAL INFORMATION
MATCHING SECURITY CODES
Each transmitter can use one of 1,048,576 unique security codes. It may be necessary to program the remote receiver to
LEARN the security code of the transmitter upon initial use, if batteries are replaced, or if a replacement transmitter is
purchased from your dealer or the factory. Refer to STEP 4.
The microprocessor that controls the security code matching procedure is controlled by a timing function. If you are
unsuccessful in matching the security code on the first attempt, wait 1-2 minutes before trying again – this delay allows
the microprocessor to reset its timer circuitry – and try up to two or three more times.

THERMO FUNCTION
When the transmitter is in the THERMO mode, it should be kept away from direct sources of heat such as fireplaces,
incandescent lighting, and direct sunlight. Leaving the transmitter in direct sunlight, for example, will cause its heatsensing
diode to read the room temperature higher than it actually is; if in THERMO mode, it may not turn on the
appliance even if the ambient ROOM temperature is below the SET temperature.

BATTERY LIFE
Life expectancy of alkaline batteries in the remote should be at least 12 months. Check and replace all batteries
annually. When the Transmitter no longer operates the receiver from a distance it did previously (i.e., the transmitter’s
range has decreased) or the remote receiver does not function at all, the transmitter batteries should be checked. The
Transmitter should operate with as little as 5.0 volts of battery power, measuring at the (4) 1.5-volt batteries.
