inserted. Batteries compartment of thermo sensor is locating behind the back cover, 
unscrews to open.

or CH3 to ensure each sensor is transmitting difference channel before inserting batteries.
The channel select switch is at the back of the thermo sensor.

Outdoor Temperature Alert function:

Press “

ALERT

” button to set the Outdoor Temperature Alert function on or off ( “

” appears

on the LCD if this function is on).

Hold “

ALERT

” button for 3 seconds to enter the Alert setting. Outdoor temperature flashes.

Press “ 

+

” or “

-

” button to select the channel for the temperature alert.

Press ”ALERT” button to confirm the settings.

Press “ 

+

” or “

-

” button to set the upper ”

” and lower “

” limit of the temperature.

After setting up, reading for weather forecasts should be discarded 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.

Common to weather forecasting, absolute accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
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 for use 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 not make
mistake of new location being a possible change in air pressure. Again, discard the weather
forecasts for the next 12-24 hours as this allow time for operation at a constant altitude.
