Our new model #00592W1 includes a low temperature adaptor that plugs into the wireless sensor. Is it necessary to use this?

I found this on another Acu-Rite manual: In case temperatures fall below -4F, bring the wireless sensor indoors and use the included low temperature adaptor by routing the wire out through a soft seal opening such as a window or door. (That way the Wireless sensor is protected indoors in extreme temperatures. Low temp adaptor is used outside to observe temperature.)

Shift 3 Projection Alarm clock remote cannot open

Once the batteries are installed in the remote the temp will appear in the LED screen. Now you are ready to link signals between the main unit and the remote. Simply remove one of the two triple A batteries from the main unit and then replace. You should then see what appears to be a flashing object shaped like a kite with a tail while the two units link up. Then you should see the temp reading at the remote appear in the LED readout at the main unit. By the way there is also a very small reset at the top of the switches on the back of the main unit that can be depressed with a SMALL pointed object like a scissor point or safety pin point.

Wireless thermo clock not reading outside temp

I've had a similar problem with another model, an Oregon Scientific Model IWA-80055 Wireless Thermo Clock, in which when I replaced the batteries in the remote sensor, the clock would not read the temperature from the remote sensor.
I found it fairly consistent to solve this by taking a battery out of place in the clock and putting it back in.  Unfortunately this also messed up the clock's time and date.  This is also in the instructions catalogue for the device, check and see if yours gives a similar solution.

Homedics SS- 5000

Hey, OK so you know how when you plug the clock in it takes like 5 minutes to upload? Well wait till you have the time set the atomic thing stops flashing. Now when you get there press the button on the inside of the outside temperature thing. Not the c/f one. The red dot should flash on the front of the thing your holding. It should work after that. If not then make sure you don't have any computers or cell phones by it that messes with it. Hope this helps.

Remote Sensor

make sure your time is set and the atomic clock time is recieved, then leaving the rear cover off of the transmitter, push the "tx" button not the "c/f" that is just for centegrade or ferenhight. you will see the red light on the front of reciever flash in a few seconds. The temp should display on your clock screen. If not, did the red l.e.d. light on transmitter flash. If not, its not sending data to clock. I have to reset and hit transmit every time I replace batteries on transmitter. Had no problems for over 2 years of using outside. If your not getting a reading with transmitter sitting next to clock after hitting "tx" button you may have defective transmitter.

Cant get outside time to work???

I have the same problem with mine. The outside temp displays OK for a while, then it displays two dashs. I unplug the main unit from the wall until the outside temp comes back. I then plug it back in and it works OK. I found that if the remote sensor is located more than 40 ft from the main unit and there are a couple of walls between the two, the outside temp fails more often. I have noticed that putting my wireless phone in it's charging craddle can cause the radio or nature sounds to turn on. I moved the main unit further away from the phone and that cured the problem. Sometimes it will do this if the humidity is low and I build up a static charge and then touch the unit.

Projection display

I had the some problem a few days ago when we had a power outage during the night. Try unplugging it, leave it unplugged for about 10-20 seconds, and replug it back in. Reset your time on the clock and it should work then.

Remote Weather Station shows "HHH"

This means that the read is over the HIGH limit of the sensor, perhaps is too hot there. Change it to another location. josemaX
