The i@Sky PC program is used to transmit weather data from the Internet to the USB adapter, and is installed by following the steps below:
  • Open the Internet browser on the PC where the i@Sky program is to be installed.
  • Your operating manual will contain the Internet address you need to enter.
  • Download the i@Sky program from that address and store it in a temporary folder.
  • Start the program you have downloaded and follow the installation instructions.

Performing configuration on the i@Sky portal

The i@Sky Internet portal is where you can make the settings that are required for transmitting your personal weather data (such as the location). Start the portal as follows:
  • Once the PC program has been successfully installed, the i@Sky icon will appear on your Windows task bar (system tray). Double-click the icon to open the i@Sky portal in your browser.
  • Follow the configuration steps on the i@Sky portal.
    Please note: Once configuration is complete, it may take a few minutes for the data to be transmitted to the display.
