Re: [IP] Remote control on Paradigm

Here is a quote regarding that (from

"The 511, after the remote unit was activated, would search regularly for
it. This searching cut battery life in half, with users getting only one to
two weeks of use from a battery. In the 512, the meter radios the reading to
the pump only after a test, so battery life is protected."
