Out of the box, did not work I spent half hour (not counting opening the package it was packed it) trying to get the time set. No luck. GREAT PRODUCT!! I LOVE THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE A SCREW WITH A KIND OF A HANDLE WIRE THING THAT HOLDS THE THING THAT TELLS YOU THE TEMP OUTSIDE....

GREAT BUY I just love this indoor/outdoor thermometer. I live along the Adirondack Parkway in NY and temperature change daily. Performs as expected Works great. I assume the temperature is accurate, although I have never verified it.

BATTERIES Batteries are not supplied with this product. You will need to purchase 3 x UM-3 (AA) 1.5V alkaline batteries for the main unit, and 2 x UM-4 (AAA) 1.5V alkaline batteries for the remote sensor. Insert batteries before first use, matching the polarity as shown in the battery compartment. For best results, install batteries in the remote sensor before the main unit. Press RESET after each battery change. NOTE Do not use rechargeable batteries. shows when batteries are low.

This product is shipped with a THGR122NX Thermo/ Hygro Sensor that collects Temperature and Humidity data. Data can be collected from up to 3 sensors. Additional sensors sold separately.
SETUP SENSOR 1. 2. Open the remote sensor battery compartment with a small Phillips screwdriver. Insert the batteries, matching the polarity as shown in the battery compartment. OPTION Channel 1 - 3. If you are using more than one sensor, select a different channel for each sensor.
For best results: Insert the batteries and select the channel before you mount the sensor. Place the sensor out of direct sunlight and moisture. Do not place the sensor more than 30 meters (98 feet) from the main (indoor) unit. Position the sensor so that it faces the main (indoor) unit, minimizing obstructions such as doors, walls, and furniture. Place the sensor in a location with a clear view to the sky, away from metallic or electronic objects. Position the sensor close to the main unit during cold winter months as below-freezing temperatures may affect battery performance and signal transmission. You may need to experiment with various locations to get the best results.

SWITCH Channel

Set the channel. The switch is located in the battery compartment. Place the sensor near the main unit. Press RESET on the sensor. Then, press and hold MEM and CHANNEL on the main unit to initiate signal sending between the sensor and the main unit. The reception icon on the main unit will blink for approximately 3 minutes while it is searching for the sensor. (Refer to the Sensor Data Transmission section for more information.) Close the remote sensor battery compartment. Secure the sensor in the desired location using the wall mount or table stand.
DATA TRANSMISSION Data is sent from the sensor(s) every 40 seconds. The reception icon shown in the Temperature and Humidity Areas show the status. ICON DESCRIPTION Main unit is searching for sensors. At least 1 channel has been found. Channel 1 is selected (number will change depending on the sensor you select) The selected sensor cannot be found. Search for the sensor or check batteries.
This product shows the current time, and day of week in English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish. The US Atomic Clock in Boulder, Colorado automatically updates this information unless you disable the feature. The signals are collected by the main unit when it is within 1500 km (932 miles) of a signal. Initial reception takes 2 - 10 minutes, and is initiated when you first setup the unit, and whenever you press RESET. Once complete, the reception icon will stop blinking. The icon is shown in the Clock Area.

This is normal and does not affect general product performance. The reception will resume once the interference ends. To force a manual search for Atomic Clock signals, press and hold UP for 2 seconds. If no signal is found, check the batteries. NOTE If the Atomic Clock signal is received and the hour is incorrect, use the "timezone offset" feature to adjust it to the appropriate timezone. Please see "SET CLOCK" on pg. 9 for instructions.
