Once the FX-WRZ sensor is communicating with the FX-ZFR or FX-ZFR Pro Series Router or FX-WRZ78xx Receiver, press and release the manual occupancy override button to display the signal strength.

Press and hold the manual occupancy override button on the FX-WRZ Handheld Temperature Room Sensor (Figure 1) for 5 seconds or more to place the sensor into Rapid Transmit Mode and initiate a signal strength test with the associated FX-ZFR or FX-ZFR Pro Series Router or FX-WRZ78xx Receiver.

See Rapid Transmit Mode for more information.
