Hello David,

Please try the reset steps in the order listed below:

  1. Bring both the sensor and display unit indoors and position them side by side.
  2. Remove all batteries from the sensor.
  3. Remove all power from the display unit.
  4. Wait 1 minute to ensure that any remaining battery power has discharged from both units.
  5. Inside each battery compartment you'll find an A-B-C switch, change the A-B-C channel making sure they both match.
  6. Reinstall batteries in outdoor sensor first.
  7. Reinstall batteries (and/or connect AC adapter) in display last.
  8. Let units sit within a couple feet of each other for 5 minutes to ensure a wireless signal is received.
    *The display should receive the signal within several minutes. 
  9. After a connection has been established you may place the sensor outdoors. 
    *If the signal connection fails after the units are separated try a new location for the display unit, the sensor or both.
