*Proceed in order

  1. Remove all power sources (batteries and ac adapters) from sensor and main base unit.
  2. If multi-channel wireless sensor, please select a channel not used by another sensor (not applicable to rain and wind sensors). Insert batteries into the wireless sensor first and press the reset button (may require a paper clip).
  3. Replace ac adapter or insert batteries into the main base unit and press the reset button (may require a paper clip).
  4. Wait roughly 2 minutes to check main base unit is receiving the data from the wireless sensor. Make sure the correct channel is displayed.

What if the sensor reset procedure doesn't work?
If the sensor reset procedure doesn't resolve the problem and / or you can identify that the LED light on the sensor doesn't flash periodically during transmission or some other failure is apparent then most likely you will need to replace the sensor. Sensor Guide

Wireless Sensor Tips

  • Use lithium batteries for sensors in colder climates. Lithium batteries operate at a lower temperature and last longer than alkaline.
  • Alkaline batteries can be used in warmer climates.
  • Don't use rechargeable batteries.
  • Place temperature and humidity sensors out of direct sunlight and rain (roof overhand or underneath eves).
  • Keep the main base unit away from other electrical devices that may cause interference.
