"I use this everyday!"
I received this as a gift a few years ago and I use it everyday before I leave the house or check to see if it is warm enough to go in the pool. Speaking of pool, it would be awesome if you could make a waterproof sensor so a user could check the water temperature quickly. Yeah, I am too lazy to go out and dip the plastic thermometer into the water.
"No concerns here!"
Believe it or not, I found this at a Goodwill. I purchased it when I installed a hobby greenhouse and added a thermostatically-controlled heat unit. This allows me to keep the transmitter in the greenhouse while being able to check it from my garage. Works perfectly! I just replaced the transmitter batteries after about 3 years of operation and because I could no longer find the instructions, I was able to go online and get the transmitter back in sync because the help site for the product is printed on the back of the receiver - great idea.
I own two receivers and two sensors, which have worked properly since I purchased them. Recently, within the warranty period, one of the sensors failed to pair. La Crosse replaced the sensor promptly after I filled out the required online forms. Now the system is functioning properly again. I appreciate the company's standing behind their warranty promises and feel that the WS-9160U-IT Wireless Weather Station is a very good value. Having two sensors is desirable as they can be located so that when the sun's direct rays hit one sensor the other sensor is in shadows and thus protected from radiant heating which results in a false high reading. (I live in Florida where it is difficult to find a sensor location that is never in direct sunlight.)
