Communications between the main unit (receiver) and the remote sensor (transmitter) is
wireless. This allows you to greater flexibility in choosing the location of remote sensor. The
remote transmits data up to 164 feet (50 meters) over an open, unobstructed area.
The remote sensor can be located either indoors or outdoors, allowing you chose where your
data is obtained.
• It is critical to power the remote sensor BEFORE setting up the main unit.
• It is critical to power up and test communication between the remote sensor and the main unit
BEFORE permanently mounting if outside.
• We recommend using alkaline batteries for the remote sensor. If outdoor temperatures
regularly fall below 32°F (0°C), we recommend using lithium batteries.
• Avoid using rechargeable batteries. (Rechargeable batteries cannot maintain correct
power requirements.)
ALWAYS install batteries in the remote sensor before the main unit.
• Insert batteries before first use, matching the polarity in the battery compartment.
• Press RESET after each battery change with a paper clip or similar tool.
• During initial set up, place the remote sensor close to the main unit.
• After reception is established (remote readings will appear on the main unit’s display),
position the remote sensor and the main unit within the effective transmission range of up to
164 feet (50 meters).
• The main unit must be placed indoors.
• Avoid pressing any buttons on the main unit before the remote readings are displayed.
• Transmission or reception range may be affected by trees, metal structures, and electronic
appliances, surrounding building materials and how the main unit and transmitter are
• Place the remote sensor so that it faces the main unit (receiver), minimizing obstructions such
as doors, walls and furniture.
• Though the remote sensors are weather-resistant, they should be placed away from direct
sunlight, rain or snow. The optimal location for the remote sensor outdoors is under the eaves
on the north side of the building.
