“Perfect Snow Bird Item” – Traveling Homeowner from Minnesota
We live in Minnesota and live full time in our motor coach in the winter months. This product appears to be just what we wanted to keep an eye on our Minnesota home when we are away. Our neighbors had a costly problem with frozen pipes a few years ago. The text alerts will give us peace of mind that we won't have this problem. Set up took about 15 minutes and we are very happy that we do not need a computer at home for the temperature alert system to operate since we take our lap top computers with us when we travel.
“Keeps an eye on it” – Homeowner from Alabama
I live in a home on a crawl space and monitoring the moisture is very important. Mold grows under a house when there is too much moisture. I have had to have mold removed from my crawl space twice in the six years we have lived here. Attempting to control the moisture is difficult when you don't know how much moisture is there. The La Crosse Alerts wireless monitor system allows me to always know the moisture level and if there is a possible leak under my home. It is very easy to set up and connect to the Internet. I can check the temperature and moisture level under my home from any computer or wireless Internet device. I am very pleased with this product and recommend it to anyone who lives in a home on a crawl space.
“The best probe for my needs” – Food Distributor from New York
We've purchased one La Crosse Alert unit and are pleased with the ease of use and set up. We are now ready to implement several more throughout our warehouse facility. We've recently purchased additional warehouse space down the road and it is great to know we can monitor temperature in the facility 24/7.
“Different than other weather stations I've owned” – Pet Owner from Washington
I have my sensor inside the house, with the probe in my snake's terrarium. What's nice is when I'm on vacation I can check the website and see the temperature of my snake's terrarium and have some peace of mind. Sometimes I worry about him getting too hot or too cold while we're away. Last time we went on vacation, the furnace broke; we came home to a freezing cold house. Had I had this then, I would have known and could have called maintenance (we rent), and it could have been fixed by the time we got back.
“Reliable and Accurate” – Homeowner from Wisconsin
I have been a user of the La Crosse Alerts System (Temperature and Humidity) for over a year now. I use it to monitor my attic, where I keep several items that could be damaged by temperature and humidity extremes. I do have some climate control but at times it will fail or not be able to compensate. The alerts let me take action before any damage is done. Without it I would never know conditions got out of range. It has been reliable and accurate and I could not be more pleased.
“If it wasn’t for the alert I received…” – Hot Tub Owner from Wisconsin
I have an outdoor hot tub located in Wisconsin which I keep running all year round. On New Year’s Eve I was out with friends when I received a text telling me that the temperature of my hot tub cabinet had dropped to below my acceptable level. When I arrived home at 2 AM I lifted up my cover and saw that the control panel lights were off. The breaker switch in our fuse box had tripped and I was unable to flip it back on. I found out that the heating element on my hot tub had broken and needed replacing. I was leaving town the next day so decided to drain the hot tub and fix it when I was back home again. I would never have checked my hot tub if it wasn’t for the alert I received, and I would have had to deal with frozen and broken pipes and possibly even a new hot tub! Thanks La Crosse Alerts.
“Saved our fish” – Pet Owner from Wisconsin
My husband has a 70-gallon fish tank and we use a La Crosse Alerts system to monitor the temperature of the water. One day we received an alert that the temperature had risen to above the upper parameter we had set. My husband checked the tank and found out that the thermostat had quit working and the heater was continuing to heat up that water. If we hadn’t been alerted, several, if not all, of our fish would have died before we noticed there was a problem.
“Accurate temperature readings” – Homeowner from Wisconsin
I used the La Crosse alerts to test how cold my freezer in my refrigerator would get. I put the sensor inside the freezer and then logged in to lacrossealerts.com to check the temperature dropping. It accurately measured the dropping and rising of temperature. I also tested the probe part, by putting probe in refrigerator to check that is keeping cool enough. I also had the wet probe inside our hot tub to accurately measure the temperature I had set (102 degrees). When I turned the temperature down to 70-80 degrees, our La Crosse Alerts sensor would let us know. The bottom line is this product gives peace of mind and works excellently and accurately. I would use it on anything I deem important that’s affected by temperature or humidity.
