How to Change Batteries in your Wireless Sensor Wireless Sensor

The  batteries in your Wireless Sensor will last from 2 to 5 years,  depending on use. The main factors affecting the life of your battery  are report interval and signal strength.

Note: We  recommend that you use AA Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries; other  brands have a noticeably shorter life span. Standard alkaline cell  batteries may be used, but they do not perform well under cold  conditions.



  1. Turn the unit over and locate the screw.

  3. Remove the old batteries.
  4. Replace the batteries with two Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries.
  5. To turn on the device, press and release the On/Off button.



  • Batteries  draining much quicker than expected likely points to a hardware issue.  Please contact us if you are having this problem.
  • Standard alkaline cells can be used, but they will not perform well in cold conditions.
  • Alternate battery types will have a noticeably shorter lifespan.
