Congratulations on your purchase of this weather station, MeteoClock Wall Deco SM1760. Please take 

the time to read and understand this manual so you can begin to enjoy the convenience and features this 

product has to offer. 

What exactly is a Weather Station? 

Lexibook digital stations measure not only the time in progress – thanks to their built-in-clock but also the 

actual and upcoming weather. 

The MeteoClock Wall deco SM1760 incorporates the following functions:

- Thermometer: 

The temperature is displayed in real time to the nearest tenth of a degree Celsius. Thanks to its wireless 

sensor, the station can detect from a distance the outdoor temperature or that of another room. 

- Hygrometer: 

Outdoor  or  indoor  hygrometry  is  expressed  in  percentage  of  humidity  in  the  ambient  air.  The  ideal 

ʻComfort Zoneʼ for the human body ranges from 35 to 65% hygrometry for a given temperature between 

18 and 24oC. 

- Barometer: 

The station also monitors the atmospheric pressure in real time. It displays the weather forecast by 

means of animated icons (sun, clouds, rain...) and for the next 8 to 12 hours.

And many extra features:

Automatic Learning Function

1. Learn function executes automatically and 

    runs for approximately 3 minutes when the 

    batteries are first installed in the receiver.

2. Within these 3 minutes, the receiver picks up 

    the temperature & humidity signals from the 

    remote sensor and displays the readings.

Manual-Learning (Searching for Remote Signals)

If a new remote sensor is added or if the signal is 

lost (outdoor display blinking), the learning function must be executed again.

1. Press and hold 

CHN [4]

 for 3 seconds to start.

2. A beep sound indicates that the learning function has started.

3. The 'Channel' symbol will flash and unit will beep as each remote sensor 

    is detected.

LOW BATTERY INDICATION:  

If the batteries of the remote sensor are low, the following indicator   

will be displayed on the main unit. The indicator will also be displayed on the bottom left corner of the 

remote sensorʼs screen. When the main unitʼs LCD display becomes dim, it indicates that the batteries 

are low and need to be changed. 

Note: if the sensor is exposed to very low temperatures for an extended period of time, the batteries 

may lose power which may cause the transmission range to be limited. High temperatures also reduce 

the battery performance. 

Setting the remote sensor

Unscrew the battery cover and insert batteries to begin the settings. 

The house code

 will flash for 8 seconds. 

Select 

a house code

 (1-15) by pressing 

°C/°F

 [8] and then press 

SET [7]

. The house code is the frequency signal sent by the 

remote sensor to the receiver. The remote sensors for each 

receiver must be set to the same house code, and remember to 

press 

SET

The channel

 will flash for 8 seconds. 

Select a 

channel

 (1-3) by pressing 

°C/°F

 [8] and then press 

SET

 [7].  The channel 

function allows the receiver to identify each remote sensor. Each receiver can receive 

up to 3 different remote channels. The preferred channel number (1, 2 or 3) for each individual 

remote sensor can be assigned. However, channel 1 is used for collecting data from outdoor and 

activating the weather forecast symbols. If you only have one remote sensor, please set it at 

channel 1 and place it outdoors.  
Humidity and temperature will be displayed.
Toggle between °C or °F temperature display by pressing 

°C/°F 

key [8].

Insert 3 x AA batteries at the back of the main unit. 

Notes: 

• The SM1760 comes with one receiver and one remote sensor. If you wish to buy additional sensors 

   please refer to the section ACCESSORIES at the end of this manual.

• Use a different house code if your weather station detects other signals from neighbouring sources. 

   Else, use default settings: house code = 01  and channel = 01

Fixing your remote sensor and receiver

The remote sensor has a detachable cover with both a wall mount holder and a stand [12]. To fix it on a 

wall, make sure the stand is not pulled out and fix the holder on a hook or nail. To fix the stand on a shelf 

or table, simply pull it out and make sure it is well secured. The remote sensor should be fixed on a 

smooth surface to prevent altering the range of the date transmission. To ensure a good transmission, 

the remote sensor should not installed on or near a large metal surface. Before choosing the location of 

the remote sensor, test that the receiver can receive the signals. It is also recommended that the remote 

sensor is placed as close as possible to the receiver to eliminate any interference. The receiver also has 

a wall mount holder and a stand. To place it, use the same precautions as for the remote sensor. 

Backlight

The default state of the Backlight is 

ON. To turn the backlight on, press either Mode [1] or Snooze [5]. It 

will stay on for about 10 seconds. 

To disable it: at year setting mode (see section on manual clock setting), press the SNOOZE [5] key once, 

press another time to switch it on again.

RADIO CONTROL CLOCK

The SM1760 is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock 

once it is brought within the reception range of a radio signal. There are 

2 different radio signals: 

- DCF77 signal, for GMT +1 (France, Spain, Italy, Germany);

- MSF signal, for GMT (UK, Ireland, Portugal).   

The DCF77 signal will be received if the main unit is within 1500 km of the 

Frankfurt atomic clock. Your main unit will be automatically synchronised 

with the MSF signal if located within the UK radio signal range.

1. The clock automatically starts scanning the RF 433MHz signal after new batteries are inserted in the 

    main unit. When receiving radio signal, the Radio Tower symbol starts to blink. A complete reception 

    generally takes several minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal. The scan can also be 

    triggered manually by holding the Min/- key [3] for 3 seconds.   

2. When the reception is complete, the Radio 

    Tower symbol will stop blinking and remain 

    solid. The clock automatically scans the 

    time signal at 02:07 everyday to maintain 

    accurate timing.  

3. If the clock is within the range of both the DCF77 and MSF radio signals, you can toggle between the 

    2 signals by sliding the DCF/MSF RCC key [10].  

Notes: 

• For an optimal reception, place the clock away from metal objects and electrical appliances (i.e. 

  television, computer, monitor, etc.) to minimize interference.

• If the user sets the time (year/month/date/hour/minute) manually, the unit will stop receiving the radio 

  control clock signals.

MANUAL CLOCK SETTING

Clock 1 setting

1. Press and hold mode [1] for 3 seconds to enter the clock setting mode 

    (the CLOCK 1 symbol will appear, and the time will flash).

3. Press Snooze during the clock settings to alternate between the 12 and 

    24 hour display.

4. Press MODE [1] to set the date and month. 

Note: 

• If you do not press any key for one minute, the clock will accept the last settings 

  entered.

• February will have either 28 or 29 days. Your weather station will display the 29th day on bissextile 

  years.

Throughout the 28 days of the lunar month, the aspect of the moon changes. Indeed, the moon, being 

spherical, is always half lightened up by the sun. As the moon rotates around the Earth, the appearance 

of its lightened side changes continuously. This phenomenon creates moon phases. The moon phase 

on your MeteoClock is automatically updated according to the year/ month/day.

Animated weather forecast symbols

This weather station is capable of detecting barometric 

pressure changes, and based on the data collected, can 

predict the weather for the next 12 to 24 hours. The 

effective range covers an area of 30 – 50km.

Storm Alert

* The storm symbol will flash to warn of a thunderstorm.

* It is activated when pressure falls/rises and temperature plunges.

About Snow and Freeze Warning

* The snow symbol will flash to warn that it might snow.

* Activated when the temperature of Channel 1 is between -1.9 °C & +2.9 °C.

* The snow symbol will appear solid when the temperature of channel 1 falls below - 1.9 °C, and it is 

   freezing.

Note:

* The remote sensor set at channel 1 displays the weather forecast icons (as well as the trend indication). 

   Please place it outdoors.

Your weather station displays the existing atmospheric pressure in hectopascal (hPa). It is commonly 

acknowledged that a value of 1015 hPa is the limit between an anticyclone (good weather > 1015 hPa) 

and a low-pressure area (bad weather < 1015 hPa).

In order to establish a comparison between pressure values, the latter are expressed in hPa at sea level, 

i.e. zero altitude.  Ambient pressure varies according to altitude (hence, the altitude at which your home 

stands is important). This is why it is possible and perfectly normal to notice a small difference between 

the pressure displayed by the MeteoClock® SM1760 unit (not corrected to the local altitude) and the 

official values broadcasted by the national weather agency. The reason being that the latter considers 

the altitude and corrects the measured pressure (to express it as if it was at sea level). 

Therefore, the digital readings shown by this unit must not be regarded as final:  What is in fact important 

in terms of weather forecast is the evolution and trend of those readings. A significant change in ambient 

pressure can be determined by an increase or a reduction of 5 hPa.

REMARKS:

•  After having completed the settings of your weather station, please discard the readings of the weather  

  forecast for the next 12-24 hours. This will allow sufficient time for the Weather Station to operate at a          

  constant altitude and therefore result in a more accurate forecast.

• Absolute accuracy cannot be guaranteed regarding weather forecasting. The weather forecasting  

  feature is estimated to have an accuracy level of about 75% due to the varying areas the Weather  

  Station has been designed to be used in.

• If the Weather Station is moved to another location significantly higher or lower than its initial standing  

  point (e.g. from ground floor to 1st floor of a house), remove the batteries and reinsert them after about  

  30 seconds. By doing this, the Weather Station will mistakenly consider the new location as a possible  

  change in air pressure. Again, discard the weather forecasts for the next 12-24 hours as to allow time  

  for operation at a constant altitude.

Low pressure

Why study barometric pressure? 

Generally, bad weather is associated with low barometric pressure and fine 

weather with high pressure. A low pressure area is surrounded by air of 

higher pressure. As the higher pressure air cannot move in the low pressure 

area, it will move upwards, causing condensation of water in the air and 

producing clouds. The opposite is true for high pressure: in a high pressure 

area, air of lower pressure will move downwards, warming up the air and 

evaporating the water in the air.

Pressure trend 

The trend pointer displayed at [A2] indicates the trend of the barometric pressure.

Indicates that the barometric pressure trend is increasing.  

Indicates that the barometric pressure trend is steady.

Indicates the barometric pressure trend is decreasing.

The bar graph lets you see the pressure trend over a period of 12 hours. The bar graph will show the 

pressure trend by default. To view the indoor temperature trend or the outdoor temperature trend, press 

Snooze [5]

 in Clock1 mode. 

The sequence is:  

     Pressure Trend         

      

     Inside Temperature Trend

          

     Outside Temperature Trend

Note: 

The weather forecast, by the means of the animated icons, depends on the evolution of the barometric 

pressure. By consulting the barometric pressure historical graph you can evaluate the likeliness or the 

strength of the weather forecast currently displayed. For example, if the pressure has steadily increased 

over the past 12 hours but decreases slightly in the next 3 hours, the weather station might forecast rain, 

but you could expect the probability of rain to remain low. On the other hand, if you observe a sudden 

and large shift in pressure, the weather forecast is more likely to be extreme. For example, if the 

forecast is rain, and you observe a large and sudden downward shift of pressure, the rain is likely to be 

heavy. 

The comfort level will be established based on the data collected from indoor temperature/humidity. The 

indicator below will display whether the level is comfortable, normal or uncomfortable.

Comfort Level         Description

It shows that the current environment is within 

the ideal range for indoor temperature and 

relative humidity.

It shows that the current environment is 

acceptable.

It shows that the current environment is containing 

inadequate moisture, too cold or too hot.
