The transmitters can send data once every 6, 12 or 18 seconds. Reducing the transmission rate will helps to extend battery life to several years.
To change settings, press and hold the button on the transmitter for 3 seconds until the LED blinks. Press and hold again for 3 seconds to move to the next transmission rate. The LED lights correspond to the following:
- Green - least frequent update rate.
- Orange - medium update frequency.
- Red - most frequent transmission rate (default setting).
Note:The LED will blink once each time it transmits data. This blink is very faint (to conserve battery power) and not easy to see outside in daylight.
Depending on the transmitter age and type, the refresh rates are 6, 12, & 18 seconds or 10, 15, & 20 seconds.
