Okay this item has three channels, only the first channel sets off the alarm. so if you put the switch on the outdoor unit to channel 2 or 3 then press the reset button, then tell the recieving unit that it will be looking for something on channel 2 or 3 (press and hold channel and Memory). this will take care of it.
now about the batteries, yes if your outdoor unit will be in temperatures under -4 degrees you will need lithium ion batteries, if you go to the store a pack of four (you only need two for the outdoor unit) costs about 2 dollars more than a regular batteries and they last longer and go last all the way down till -40 degrees.
Atomic clock, mine would not connect at first, so i walked outside and told it to search again, then after about a minute it found it and i brought it inside and it works great.
Enjoy the product, i love it
What I like about it: The style is simple and elegant, the diplay is easy to read at a distance, the clock sets itself quickly and accurately, and the reception from the remote unit is reliable.
Now for the bad part. Whoever designed the temperature warning features should be fired! A loud beeping alarm will go off anytime the remote temperature unit senses a temperature from 28 F to 37 F, and there is no way to turn this alarm function off! I tried setting the high and low temperature alarms to see if that would override the default and it does not. This renders the unit useless as a temperature warning device! Dumb!
I decided to keep it anyway - just as a mere thermometer without any alarms. Here is how to do it: There is no need to take anything apart or cut any wires. You just have to open up the remote unit and move the small switch to channel 2 or 3 and press the reset button with the end of a paper clip. This is because the default channel 1 is the channel that sets off the alarms.
I guess I'll have to return it. The return process was fast and easy.
