Install or Replace Backup Batteries 3 AA alkaline batteries PLEASE DISPOSE OF OLD OR DEFECTIVE BATTERIES IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE WAY AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS. BATTERY SAFETY: Clean the battery contacts and also those of the device prior to battery installation. Remove batteries from equipment which is not to be used for an extended period of time. Follow the polarity (+/-) diagram in the battery compartment. Promptly remove dead batteries from the device. Dispose of used batteries properly. Only batteries of the same or equivalent type as recommended are to be used. DO NOT incinerate used batteries. DO NOT dispose of batteries in fire, as batteries may explode or leak. DO NOT mix old and new batteries or types of batteries (alkaline/standard). DO NOT use rechargeable batteries. DO NOT recharge non-rechargeable batteries. DO NOT short-circuit the supply terminals. 6 Atomic Clock (RCC) AcuRite atomic clocks use a radio-controlled signal (RCC) to synchronize to the correct time broadcast by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Radio Station WWVB, located near Fort Collins, Colorado. WWVB broadcasts the current time and date with split-second accuracy. The atomic clock and calendar will maintain the correct time and date, and automatically update for daylight saving time to provide the most accurate timekeeping standard possible. When the RCC button, located under the battery compartment cover, is set to ON, the clock will automatically search for the atomic clock signal. To manually search for the atomic signal, make sure the RCC button is set to ON, then press AND HOLD the “ “ button. Please note: Signal reception is normally better at night and when the weather is clear. The atomic signal generally takes a few hours to synchronize, so it is important to manually set the time and date after powering on the clock. Set the Time & Date Press and hold the “ ” button, located on the front of the clock, to enter SET MODE. Once in SET MODE the preference you are currently setting will blink on the clock. To adjust the currently selected (flashing) item, press and release the “ ” or “ “ buttons (press and HOLD to fast adjust). To save your adjustments, press and release the “ ” button to adjust the next preference. The preference set order is as follows: TIME ZONE (PST MST CST EST AST HAST AKST) AUTO DST ON/OFF CLOCK HOUR CLOCK MINUTE CALENDAR MONTH CALENDAR DATE CALENDAR YEAR You will automatically exit SET MODE if no buttons are pressed for 5 seconds. Enter SET MODE at any time by pressing the “ ” button. If you live in an area that observes daylight saving time, DST should be set to ON. 7 Placement for Maximum Accuracy AcuRite sensors are sensitive to surrounding environmental conditions. Proper placement of both the clock and outdoor sensor are critical to the accuracy and performance of this product. Important Placement Guidelines • To ensure accurate temperature measurement, place units out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents. • Clock 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.). TV 3 (330 feet maximum) Setup is Complete (100 meters) The sensor will now synchronize with the clock. It may take a few minutes for synchronization to complete. Alarm Clock Placement Place alarm clock in a dry area free of dirt and dust. To help ensure an accurate indoor temperature measurement, be sure to place the clock away from heat sources or vents. 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 4 to 8 feet above the ground with permanent shade and plenty of fresh air to circulate around the sensor. AT LEAST (.91 m) APART 8 OPERATION Using the Clock Set the Alarm Time Slide Alarm #1 and/or Alarm #2 switch ON (alarm time cannot be adjusted if the alarm is OFF). Press and release the “ 1 ” or the “ ” button to enter ALARM SET MODE. To adjust the currently selected (flashing) item, press and release the “ ” or “ “ buttons (press and HOLD to fast adjust). To save your adjustments, press and release the “ ” or “ “ button to adjust the next preference. The preference set order is as follows: ALARM CLOCK HOUR ALARM CLOCK MINUTE ALARM EVERY DAY or WEEKDAY ONLY or WEEKEND ONLY You will automatically exit ALARM SET MODE if no buttons are pressed for 5 seconds. Enter ALARM SET MODE at any time by pressing the “ ” or “ 2 “ button. Backlight During power adapter use, press the Snooze button for momentary backlight at 100% brightness. During battery-powered use, press any button for momentary backlight. The backlight MAY turn off at 2:00AM and 3:00 AM to acquire the atomic clock (RCC) signal. USB Charging Charge your mobile device by plugging your device’s USB power cord (not included) into the USB charging port on the back of the clock. USB charging is only available during power adapter use; USB charging is not active when operating on battery power only. Note: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your mobile device(s) to determine compatibility with the USB charging feature on this product. Some devices may not support USB charging or may require a higher power rating than this product provides. Observe the charging status on your device. Ensure your device is working properly before attempting to charge. 9 2 1 2 1 ALARM ++- - DIMMER VOLUME CHARGE USB DEVICE DC 4.5 v
Troubleshooting No outdoor sensor reception no bars If the wireless signal indicator shows no bars: • 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 -4oF/-20oC). Do not use heavy duty or rechargeable batteries. NOTE: It may take up to 20 minutes for clock and sensor to synchronize after batteries are replaced. • Relocate the clock and/or the outdoor sensor. The units must be within 330 ft (100 m) of each other. Clock is too dark, hard to read or doesn’t work • Check that the batteries are installed correctly. Batteries may need to be replaced. • Increase brightness using +/– buttons, located on the back of the clock. • The backlight may automatically turn off for 10 minutes at 2:00am and 3:00am to acquire the atomic clock signal. • Verify power adapter is plugged in. • The optimum viewing angle for this product is from slightly above it. • Reset the unit by pressing the reset button, located on the bottom of the clock. Inaccurate temperature • Make sure both the clock and sensor are placed out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources or vents (see page 8). Outdoor temperature is flashing or showing dashes Flashing of the outdoor temperature is generally an indication of wireless interference.
- Bring both the sensor and clock indoors, side by side and remove batteries from each. 2. Make sure the A-B-C switch on both units match. 3. Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor. 4. Reinstall batteries in clock. 5. Let the units sit within a couple feet of each other for about 20 minutes to gain a strong connection.
