INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on your purchase of the Lexibook

®

SM1100 weather station with its

integrated forecasting facility.

The station will provide you with the following information:

"

the time;

"

weather forecasts in the form of icons;

"

inside and outside temperatures;

"

the outside humidity as a percentage;

"

minimum and maximum day temperatures;

"

warnings if the humidity reaches certain levels or temperature limits are
exceeded.

The outside temperature and humidity are recorded using a 434-MHz wireless thermal
sensor. No cable connection is needed. The Lexibook

®

SM1100 weather station

can accommodate up to four remote sensors. One sensor is provided with the
product.

Please read all the instructions carefully so that you fully understand your weather
station’s functions.

The Lexibook

®

SM1100 model is equipped with a liquid crystal display. During use, this

display may appear defective, especially if you are using the weather station for the first
time or moving it. If this occurs, place the weather station flat on a table for ten minutes.
This will allow the liquid crystals to fill up any empty spaces.

PLEASE BE SURE YOU INSERT BATTERIES INTO THE REMOTE UNIT BEFORE
YOU INSERT BATTERIES INTO THE MAIN UNIT.

The remote unit functions on two “AAA” batteries. To insert or replace these batteries,
follow these steps:

1.  Remove the stand with the handle.
2.  Loosen the screw at the back of the compartment and remove the lid.
3.  Insert the alkaline batteries, taking care to follow the polarity indications.
4.  Replace the lid on the unit and secure it by tightening the screw firmly.
5.  If the “battery low” indicator flashes on the LCD, you must replace the batteries.
6.  The unit is now ready to receive the telecode and house code. (Please refer to the

section on CONFIGURING THE TRANSMITTER OR REMOTE TRANSMITTERS).

IF THE TEMPERATURE FALLS BELOW -18°C (0°F), THE BATTERY IN THE
REMOTE UNIT IS LIABLE TO FREEZE. IN THESE CONDITIONS, IT IS
RECOMMENDED THAT YOU BRING THE REMOTE UNIT INDOORS. THE BATTERY
MANUFACTURER SHOULD BE ABLE TO TELL YOU THE FREEZING POINT OF THE
BATTERY.

The main unit functions on two “AA” batteries. To insert or replace these batteries,
follow these steps:

1.  Remove the cover from the back of the unit.
2.  Insert the batteries, taking care to follow their polarity.
3.  Replace the cover.
4.  Once the batteries have been inserted, the main unit enters “receive” mode in order

to memorise the telecode. When the frame around the telecode flashes, it means
that memorisation is in progress; this will take between three and five minutes. The
main unit will then update the temperature and humidity being read by the remote
unit.

On a smooth surface, use the handle attached to the transmitter. The quality of the
surface may however alter the range of the data transmission. If, for example, the
transmitter is placed on a metal surface, the range may be reduced or increased as a
result. For this reason, it is not a good idea to install the transmitter on a metal surface
or anywhere in the vicinity of a large metal surface. Before determining the position of
the transmitter, ensure that the main unit can receive the signals sent by the transmitter.

WE RECOMMEND THAT THE TRANSMITTER IS PLACED AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE
TO THE MAIN UNIT IN ORDER TO ELIMINATE ANY INTERFERENCE.

1.  The transmitter housing has two buttons on the back.

RESET - used to initialise the transmitter codes.
*  SET - used to change the house code, which ranges from “1” to “15” and the
telecode (1 to 4) associated with the transmitter.

2.  Once the batteries are inserted, the house code “1” will start to flash. Press the

SET” button as often as is needed to display the desired house code. Wait a few
seconds for the chosen house code to be confirmed. The code represents the
frequency of the signals transmitted by the remote unit to the main unit.

WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU KEEP THE ORIGINAL HOUSE CODE SET AT 1.

3.  The house code range extends from “1” to “15”. Please ensure that all the

transmitters on your weather station are set to the same house code.

4.  Once the house code has been chosen, another figure to the right will flash; this is

the telecode. Use the SET button to select the telecode (1 to 4) for each of the
transmitters. It allows the main unit to identify the different remote units. Therefore,
choose a different code for each one of the remote units.

5.  Confirm this number by simply waiting a few seconds.
6.  Once the telecode and house code have been defined, do not alter either code. If

you do, you will have to repeat the above procedure in full.

"

The temperature and relative humidity being reported will be displayed alternately.

"

This data will also be transmitted to the receiver at regular intervals.

The SM1100 weather station receives the outside temperature data by radio
transmission at 434 MHz. Please read the following instructions carefully before deciding
where you will install the remote unit and the main unit of the SM1100.

Installing the SM1100 main unit and the wireless remote unit.

1.  The transmission range from the remote unit to the main unit is in the region

of 23-30 m (in an open space). These figures may vary with the environment and the
level of interference.

2.  The main unit and the remote unit should be located a minimum of 2 metres away

from any source of interference.

3.  Do not place the units close to a metal window frame.
4.  Any electrical device in the vicinity using a radio frequency of 434 MHz may cause

interference.

5.  Extremes of temperature may also reduce the transmission range. If the

temperature falls very low (below -25°C or -13°F) for a long period, transmission
power will be too low because of the alkaline batteries. In these conditions, keep the
remote unit indoors and wait for the temperature to rise again.

The temperature being read by one of the sensors flashes on the main unit

Flashing indicates that the connection between the sensor and the main unit has been
interrupted for more than four hours. This can be caused by interference from other radio
signals in the surrounding area. Wherever possible, you should keep the remote sensor
relatively close to the main unit, ensuring that no walls or metal surfaces come between
them. Then hold down the CHANNEL button on the main unit for five seconds. The main
unit will then restore the connection with all the remote sensors.

The temperature or humidity reading is not updated

If you notice that communication between the main unit and the remote unit has been
interrupted, hold down the CHANNEL button on the main unit for five seconds. The main
unit will then spend four minutes searching for signals issued by all the available
remote sensors in order to restore the connection.

If this method does not work, set up the main unit closer to the sensor or alongside it and
hold down the button for a further five seconds.

A beep is heard

One of the alarms has been triggered. The weather station has a daily alarm that can be
sounded, and gives off warning signals to indicate that the maximum or minimum
temperature has been reached.

*Please refer to the instructions for use on how to activate or deactivate these alarms.

A remote unit installed alongside the main unit indicates a different temperature
for the same location

This is a perfectly normal and acceptable phenomenon. The temperature sensors are
accurate to about +/-1.7°C. For this reason, the display from the main unit and from a
remote sensor installed alongside it can vary by 3.4 degrees.

The indoor relative humidity shows “LO”.

The humidity percentage range is between 15% and 95%.

If the indoor relative humidity registered close to the main unit is below 15% (which may
occur in winter), the unit will display “LO”.
If the indoor relative humidity rises above 95%, the unit will show “HI”; this is perfectly
normal.

A remote unit installed alongside the main unit indicates a different humidity level
for the same location

This is a perfectly normal and acceptable phenomenon. The humidity sensors are
accurate to about +/- 5%. For this reason, the display on the main unit and that on a
remote sensor installed alongside it can vary by 10%.
