****** Page 8 ****** Intelli-Time@ Clock Intelli-Time products are pre-programmed with the correct time and date. All you need to do is select your Time Zone and Daylight Saving Time preferences. The clock will then automatically updates for Daylight Saving Time. Set the Time, Date & Units Press the ” OX” button to enter SETUP MODE. Once in setup mode, the preference you are currently setting will blink on the display. To adjust the currently selected (flashing) item, press and release the “/ss” or buttons (press and HOLD to fast adjust). To save your adjustments, press and release the u OX” button again to adiust the next preference. The preference set order is as follows: TIME ZONE ( PST MST CST EST AST HAST AKST) DST* (Daylight Saving Time ON or OFF) CLOCK HOUR CLOCK MINUTE CALENDAR DATE CALENDAR MONTH CALENDAR YEAR TEMPERATURE SCALE (OF or oc) BAROMETRIC PRESSURE SCALE (inHg or hPa) *If you live in an area that observes daylight saving time, DST should be set to ON, even if it is not currently Daylight Savings Time. You will automatically exit SETUP MODE if no buttons are pressed for 20 seconds. Enter setup mode at any time by pressing the “O*” button. Backlight Settings This weather station’s color display features a backlight with brightness levels including High, Medium and Low brightness settings. Using battery power alone, the backlight is available momentarily for 7 seconds by pressing the “BACKLIGHT” button, located on top of the display. When display is powered with the power adapter, the display’s brightness can be adjusted using the I’ LIGHT” switch, located on the back of the display inside the battery compartment. The switch offers four different backlight settings: High (100%) brightness, Medium (60%) brightness, Low (30%) brightness and Off (0%), or no backlight. 8
****** Page 9 ****** Placement for Maximum Accuracy AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper placement of both the display unit and outdoor sensor are critical to the accuracy and performance of this product. Display Unit Placement Place the display unit in a dry area free of dirt and dust. Display unit stands upright for tabletop use or is wall-mountable. Outdoor Sensor Placement Sensor must be placed outside to observe outdoor conditions. Sensor is water resistant and is designed for general outdoor use, however, to extend its life place the sensor in an area protected from direct weather elements. Hang the sensor using the integrated hang holes or hanger, or by using string (not included) to hang it from a suitable location, like a well covered tree branch. The best location is to 8 feet above the ground with permanent shade and plenty of fresh air to circulate around the sensor. Important Placement Guidelines • To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place units out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents. • Display unit and outdoor sensor must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other. • To maximize wireless range, place units away from large metallic items, thick walls, metal surfaces, or other objects that may limit wireless communication. • To prevent wireless interference, place both units at least 3 ft (.9 m) away from electronic devices (TV, computer, microwave, radio, etc.). APART (330 feet maximum) (100 meters) Setup is Complete The sensor will now synchronize with the display unit. It may take a few minutes for synchronization to complete. Please refer to the troubleshooting section of this manual if anything appears to be functioning improperly. 9
****** Page 10 ****** OPERATION Using the Weather Station Learning Mode Self-Calibrating Forecasting uses a unique algorithm to analyze changes in pressure over a time period (called Learning Mode) to determine your altitude. After 14 days, the Learning Mode icon disappears from the display screen. At this point, the self-calibrated pressure is tuned in to your location and the unit is ready for superior weather prediction. Weather Forecast AcuRite’s patented Self-Calibrating Forecasting provides your personal forecast of weather conditions for the next 12 to 24 hours by collecting data from the sensor in your backyard. It generates a forecast with pinpoint accuracy – personalized for your exact location. STORM WARNING SNOW LIKELY LIGHT RAIN LIKELY CLOUDY PARTLY CLOUDY (flashing=stormy) View the complete list of icons at AcuRite.com/acurite-icons Barometric Pressure Subtle variations in barometric pressure greatly impact the weather. This weather center displays the current pressure and indicates the direction the pressure is trending (FALLING, STEADY, or RISING). The history chart lets you monitor the change in pressure over time. Humidity Level Icon The Humidity Level Icon easily conveys a low, high or ideal indoor humidity level for your home and health: LOW Humidity Level Humidity is low relative to temperature. Makes for a DRY environment. 0K Humidity Level HIGH Humidity Level Humidity is 0K 0K relative to temperature. Makes for an IDEAL environment. Humi I high relative to temperature. Makes for a HUMID environment. Learn more at acurite.com/humidity-health 10
****** Page 11 ****** Troubleshooting Problem No outdoor sensor reception no bars Outdoor temperature is nashing or showing dashes Inaccurate forecast Inaccurate temperature or humidity Possible Solution If the wireless signal indicator shows no bars: • Relocate the display unit and/or the outdoor sensor. The units must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other. • Make sure both units are placed at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronics that may interfere with the wireless communication (such as TVs, microwaves, computers, etc). • Use standard alkaline batteries (or lithium batteries in sensor when temperature is below -ÅOF/-200C). Do not use heavy duty or rechargeable batteries. NOTE: It may take UP to 20 minutes for display unit and sensor to synchronize after batteries are replaced. Flashing of the outdoor temperature is generally an indication of wireless interference. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and l. remove batteries from each. 2. Make sure the A-B-C switch on both units match. Reinstall batteries in the outdoor sensor. 3. Reinstall batteries in the display unit. 4. Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other 5. for about 20 minutes to gain a strong connection. Sometimes changing to a different channel can help. • Weather Forecast icon predicts conditions for the next 12 to 24 hours, not current conditions. • Has Learning Mode icon disappeared from the display unit? Learning Mode must complete before forecast and pressure will be accurate. • Allow unit to run continuously for 33 days. Battery removal or resetting the display unit will restart Learning Mode. After 14 days, forecast should be fairly accurate, however Learning Mode calibrates for a total of 33 days. • Make sure both the display unit and sensor are placed out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents (see page 9). • Make sure both units are positioned away from moisture sources (see page 9). 11
