    Installation The Honeywell Complete Wireless Weather Station operates at 433MHz radio frequency, so no wire installation is required between the main unit (receiver) and the remote weather sensors (transmitters). The remote weather sensors include (2) thermo-hygrometer (temperature and humidity) sensors, anemometer (wind sensor) and a rain gauge (rain sensor). All data measured by these remote sensors is transmitted to the main unit wirelessly, with the operating range up to 328 feet (100 meters) in the open area.

  • Page 4: Before You Begin

    Before you begin The components of this Honeywell Complete Wireless Weather Station operate at 433MHz radio frequency. No interconnecting wires are required between the main unit (receiver) and the remote sensors (transmitters). Note: Your weather station comes with alkaline batteries included in each weather instrument.

    • Make sure that the remote sensors are easily accessible for cleaning and maintenance. Note: When the temperature falls below freezing, the outdoor sensor batteries may have reduced voltage and a reduced effective range. We recommend using lithium batteries at temperatures below 32°F (0°C). IMPORTANT: We recommend cleaning the remote sensors periodically, as dirt and debris affects sensor accuracy.
