    DETAILED SET-UP GUIDE Battery Installation Batteries will fit tightly. To avoid start-up problems, make sure that the batteries do not spring free. Also be sure to insert alkaline batteries into the remote thermo/hygro sensor first, then the indoor weather station. Initial set up should be done with the remote thermo/hygro sensor and indoor weather station in the same room.

    FEATURES AND OPERATIONS A. Sunrise/set and Moonrise/set Calculation The indoor weather station will calculate the sunrise/set moonrise/set each day based on the location entered through the programming mode. To view another location and/or date without affecting the programmed city location and date, follow section A.2 in Features and Operations. 1.

    7. Air pressure trends can be determined by simply glancing at the bar graph. If the bars are rising (higher on the right than the left) then the air pressure has a rising trend, and the weather should improve. b. If the bars are dropping (lower on the right than the left) then the air pressure has a falling trend, and the weather should worsen.

  • Page 26: Mounting

    VII. MOUNTING Note: Before permanently mounting, ensure that the indoor weather station is able to receive signals from the sensors and WWVB signal at the desired location. To achieve a true temperature reading, avoid mounting the remote thermo/hygro sensor (or any sensor) where direct sunlight can reach the remote sensor.

  • Page 27

    2. Mounting with Adhesive Tape With a nonabrasive solution, clean and dry the back of the mounting bracket and the mounting surface to ensure a secure hold. The mounting surface should be smooth and flat. b. Remove the protective strip from one side of the tape. Press firmly onto the designated area on the back of the mounting bracket.
