OUTDOOR
TEMPERATURE
Setting
up
the
outdoor sensor
Your
clock
will
display the current
outdoor
temperature
(see the diagram above)
via
a wireless outdoor
remote sensor (included). To
set
up the
outdoor sensor
follow
these
steps:
When you first
set up
your
clock be
sure
to
place
the two AAA batteries
(not
included) into the
outdoor sensor first
before
placing
batteries
into
the
clock.
Begin by opening
the battery
compartment cover on
the back
of
the
clock (as
shown
in
the
adove
diagram)
Insert
three AAA
batteries
(not
included) into the
battery
compartment and
make sure the polarity
is correct
by following the
(+or
-) symbols engraved inside.
Also
make
sure
that the
outdoor
sensor is set to channel 1 (inside
the battery
compartment
there
is
a switch with three different channel
options).
Channel 1 is the
default
setting.
Replace battery
compartment
door.
Replace the batteries
whenever
the display
becomes dim or
difficult to
read.
Note:
Th
e
outdoor
temperature is updated
approx.
every minute.
Using
the outdoor
temperature feature
Once you have
placed
the batteries
in
both
the
outdoor sensor and
the
clock,
the clock
will
begin
searching
for
the
signal
from
the outdoor
sensor(s).
It
will search
for
channel 1
automatically
.
If
a signal
is received a
('f) symbol
will
briefly
appear
above
the
channel indicator
on
the display and the
outdoor
temperature will be shown.
If
a signal is not received
·-
-
-"
will appearon the display.
If
you
are notable
to receive a
signal
from the sensor please
read the
section below entitled
"Outdoor
sensor
troubleshooti
ng."
Placement
of
the outdoor sensor
You should
place
the
outdoor
sensor
within approx. 90
feet
of
the clock. Obsticles
such as; walls. concrete
and large metal
objects ca
n
reduce
the
reinge.
Reception can also
be
determined
by
the materials
in a
building.
Try
some different areas
to
see where your
sensor
is
best
suited
to
send a
clear signal to
the
clock.
Wait
approximately
15 minutes before permanetly mounting to ensure that there is proper
reception.
To stand the transmitter up simply unfold
the
'foot'
on the back of the holder
To
hang the
transmitter on
a wa
ll
:
(See Below
Diagram)
Choose an area that is not
exposed
to direct sunlight or rain.
It should be
placed
as high up
from
the
ground
or as far away
from
any damp
areas
or
metallic surfaces as possible.
Hang the
sensor
holder by inserting a screw or
nail
through the
eyelet
on the
back.
Then
insert the
sensor
into the
holder

Troubleshooting
If
you
set
up your clock correctly and the outdoor temperature
reading is
showing"- -
_ ..
then
you
need
to
manually.have
the..clock
search for
the
sigoal. EoJlol'i.ltles.e steps to S'lfilcilfQ.r the
sensor sjgnal:
The channel setting
on the
clock
MUST be set to
Channel is 1.
Do this
by pressi!19 the
[ADJUST/CHANNEL]butto~
until
~hannel
1
is shown on the
display.
Note:
Make
sure
the
sensor
switch
isalsosettoChannel
1.
Check the switch
located
imtlethe battery compartment of the sensor.
Press
the
[SEARCH/TIME ZONE]
button for 2
seconds.
The
channel
number
on
the
display will begin
to blink as the
clock
seeks out the signal for channel
1.
If the signal is
still
not
received check the following:
Are the batteries in the clock ok?
Are the
batteries
in the sensor ok?
Is the
clock set
to
channel 1?
Is the transmitter located too far
from the
clock
(read
the
section
above
entitled
PLACEMENT
OF
THE OUTDOOR SENSOR)
Is the
temp.
outside below
freezing? At
temps
below
freezing
the
output of
the batteries, and
therefore
the range
of the
signal, may decrease
considerably.
As
the
temperature rises the signal strength
will
increase.
Is
the ctock
positioned
too close to a TV set or
computer?
Try
changing
the
location of
the
clock.
Other radio
controlled appliances
such
as
automatic
garage door
openers,
alarm systems or wireless headphones
can
interfere
with
the
reception.
If
the
signal is still
not
received
,
place the sensor as close as possible to the clock
and
repeat the
above
steps.
This
will
help the
clock
find the
signal
and ensure synchronization
with the
sensor.
If none
of
the
above works
then you will
need
to
reset
both
the
clock
and
the
sensor.
To
reset
the
clock and
sensor
press
the reset button
on
the
back
of the
clock
by inserting
a
straightened
wire
(paperclip
for
ex.)
into the
hole
at
the
back of
the
clock.
Do
the same to the
hole
in the
battery
compartment
of
the
sensor.
After
you
have reset
both the clock and
the
sensor
please proceed to set up
your
clock
again
from the beginning
of
this
manual.
MIN/MAX TEMPERATURE READINGS
To
view
the minimum
and/or
maximum
temperatures
(both
indoor
and outdoor)
that
have been recorded,
press the
[MINIMAX]
button
once
to
display the maximum indoor temperature that has been
recorded.
Press it once
again
to show
the
minimum indoor temperature
that has been
recorded.
And
press it a
3"
time
to
return to display the
current indoor and outdoor
temperatures.
Note
:
The Min & Max temperatures
wi
ll
remain
stored
in the clock
until
you manually
delete
them.
To
manually delete the min and max
temperatures
simply press
and
hold
the
[MINIMAX]
button
for 2 seconds
unti
a
beep
sounds.
The
Min
&
Max temperatures will
reset
and the clock will record
new readings
from that point on
.
RADIO CONTROL
FEATURE
NOTE:
At
any
time,
you can
press
and
hold the
[SN OOZE\LIGHl]
button
for 3 seconds to make the
clock
seek the atomic radio signal and set itself
automatically.
The signal strength indicator
wi
ll
blink on
the
display as the
clock seeks
out the signal.
The
National
Institute of Standards
and
Technology
(NIST) is
located
in
Fort
Collins, Colorado. The
NIST continuously
broadcasts the time
signal
(WWVB,
60KHz) which
can be received anywhere
in
the
continental
United
States where long wave
(AM)
radio
reception is possible
.
The
signal can
reach
approximately 2,000 miles through
the
internal
antenna
in
the Radio
Controlled
Clock.
However,
due
to
the nature of the
Earth's
atmosphere,
reception is very limited during
the daylight
hours.
The radio
control
clock will search
for a
signal
every night when reception is
best.
When
the WWVB
tower
icon on the clock
flashes,
this
indicates that
the
clock is receiving the
radio
signals
from
the
WWVB
radio
station.
When
the
time code is
received
the
WWVB tower
icon turns on and the time
of
the selected time
zone will be
displayed.
If only part of the WWVB tower
icon
tu
ms on
or
the
WWVB tower
does
not
appear at all and
the
time
is
not
yet
set,
please take note of the following
:
We recommend keeping the minimum distance of 8
feet from
any
interfering
source
like
TV's or
computer
monitors.
Within
concrete
rooms
(basements,
superstructures,
office
buildings),
the
received
signal will be
weakened.
In
extreme
cases,
the unit
should be
placed
close
to
a window and/or point the clock face
or back towards the
Fort
Collins.
Colorado.
During the
night,
the atmospheric disturbances are usually less severe and reception is possible
in
most
cases.
A single
daily
reception
is adequate to keep the accuracy
within
1
second
.
NOTE:
It is
recommended that
for
the
first use of the
:lock,
you set
the
clock
manually and then
allow
the Radio
Control
signal to
update
the
time
setting each day.
CARE
OF YOUR
CLOCK
Replace the
battery promptly
when
necessary and
store
the
clock
without
batteries when not in
use.
It
is
time
to
replace
the batteries when the
LCD
display becomes
dim.
Clean your
clock with
a soft
cloth
or paper towel. Do
not
use
corros
ive cleaners or chemical
solutions on the
clock.
Avoid putting the
clock In
a
highly
humid
environment
such
as poolside or in a
bathroom.
Do not expose
the
clock to direct
sunlight,
extreme hot or cold temperatures.
