How to change the Homely Temperature Node's battery

The Homely Temperature Node is powered by a single CR2032 battery (as shown in the photo below). CR2032 batteries are inexpensive and are widely available to purchase, either online or in supermarkets and hardware stores. If your battery needs changing just follow the steps below.  Please ensure you have a replacement battery and a Phillips screwdriver to hand, before starting.
