some questions about a honeywell te831w-2 that I just got
« on: January 19, 2017, 01:34:50 PM »
1st off I got a great big bargain at the GoodWill store today   :D  I got this Honeywell TE831W-2 weather station. Complete, brand spanking new in the box, never opened (other then the GoodWill employee to inspect it and close it up) still wraped up in the bubble warp and the plastic display overlay on the screen of the base station for $12.99. What a steal.
Anyways I did some tests on my work bench tonight. Everything works just fine except for setting up the wind direction and calibrating it to north, wind speed and wind chill. Right now the wind speed and direction remote are mounted on a free standing shelf in my work shop. Right now it is to cold, to windy, to icy to go out and set the outside parts of the weather station up.

Aligning
This procedure must be performed after main unit has been powered and all remote weather sensors were received
successfully.
• Manually point the wind direction vane to the north (use a compass or map if necessary).
• Press the “SET” button located inside battery compartment (on the shorter side) with a paper clip. “SET” button selects
a new direction for NORTH and, when pressed repeatedly, alternates between the factory default NORTH and user
selected NORTH.
• Watch for the next anemometer data transmission in the main unit’s wind window – the direction will be updated
• Replace the battery compartment door and secure the screws.
Note: Repeat aligning procedure every time after changing the batteries.
Mounting
Mount the anemometer onto a vertical surface, using the fittings provided.
Placement tips:
• The anemometer should be mounted in an open area with a free air flow; away from the nearby trees, buildings or
other structures.
• For optimal performance, mount the anemometer at 33 feet (10meters) above the ground in unobstructed area.

Thanks Rich for the info. The manual wasn't very clear on the procedures.
