- Bring both units inside and have the units 3-5 feet apart with nothing in- between them.
- Remove the batteries from both units.
- Press one of the buttons at least 20 times or until the display is blank to clear all memory.
- Put the batteries back into the remote sensor.
- Taking care not to press any buttons, reinstall the batteries in the display.
- Do not press any buttons for at least 10 minutes after installing the batteries. (Let them establish a good connection.)
- An outdoor temperature should be showing on your display. You can now put your outdoor sensor back outside.
The maximum open-air distance is 80 feet in a straight line although you should take into account distance and resistance. Subtract 25-30 feet for an exterior wall or any obstruction that is similar in width or composition. Subtract 15-20 feet per interior wall or any obstruction that is similar in width or composition. (An obstruction would include anything that is between the line of sight like a roof, walls, floors, ceilings, trees, etc.) Also keep your units away from electronic appliances like TV’s, microwaves, computers, refrigerators, and speakers.
We have trouble maintaining a signal through metal siding, stucco walls, and UV glass. You can get the remote sensor to transmit through these materials, but it will take a little bit of trial and error. Reset the weather station as mentioned above and change the angle that the remote transmits through the siding or glass until an outdoor temperature remains on the display for an extended period of time. Keep in mind that the signal from the remote must travel through some space (3 inches of air minimum) before reaching the metal wall or glass window.
