Is there other instructions besides this little manual I got with the product? I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do with the remote sensor temperature instrument? what is that for and what does it do? Thank you
- Hello Matt, Thank you for your review. We really appreciate your comments. You may find the product manual and the frequently asked questions on the Support tab of the product page. https://www.lacrossetechnology.com/309-1409bt?type=manuals
The remote temperature sensor should be placed outside in an area that does not get direct sunlight and is protected from rain. This sensor will show the outdoor temperature on your Wireless Thermometer

"Outside temperature not showing"
I have this device for a number of years. The accuracy is more less ok and product is ok in general although I don't like the settings, I get irritated every time I have to change the settings. But now I have a problem. Outside temperature doesn't show. It shows two short lines. Changed batteries in both outside sensor and the device itself, didn't help. What can I do to make it work properly?
- Hello Natalia, Thank you for your review. We really appreciate your comments. Please try the steps below to reset your device.
1.Remove all batteries outdoor sensor and weather station.
2.Press one of the buttons on the weather station at least 20 times to clear all memory.
3.Verify that the weather station is blank before proceeding (there may be lines painted on the screen that will show when power is removed).
4.Leave both units without power for 15 minutes (very important).
5.Insert the fresh batteries into the weather station.
6.Insert fresh batteries into the outdoor sensor.
7.Press the TX button on the outdoor sensor to transmit RF signal.
8.Keep the outdoor sensor 5-10 feet from the forecast station.
9.When RF connection is established, the temperature will appear on the station. Allow the outdoor sensor and weather station to sit together for 15 minutes to establish a strong connection.
10.Do not press buttons for 15 minutes.

The outdoor temperature gauge is not very accurate. It seems to fluctuate too much. I have checked it with my outdoor thermometer and it is off by at least 5 degrees.
The best way to test accuracy is with a side-by-side test of the indoor and outdoor unit. All electronics have different tolerances. Comparing a La Crosse Technology sensor to a La Crosse Technology display allows us to test with known tolerances.
CHECK CHANNELS: Some weather stations have a CH or channel button and can pick up a neighbors sensor on a channel that you believe your sensor is on. If your station has a CH or Channel button please press and release that button to determine if you are picking up more than one sensor.
CHECK MIN/MAX MODE: Please check that your display is not stuck in Min or Max mode, which will cause your temperatures to read incorrect.
BRING SENSOR TO DISPLAY: Please bring your outdoor transmitter inside and place it beside the display unit (no further that 1-foot away) for at least two hours.
COMPARE: Then compare indoor and outdoor readings; the Temperature difference should be no more than four degrees (+/- 2 degrees) Humidity can be up to 14% difference (+/- 7%).
*If the difference is greater, Place your sensor in the freezer for 20 minutes to be sure you are reading your sensor and not a neighbor's.
*If the sensor reads correctly while next to the display then try a different location outside. Look for heat sources such as sunlight, door or window frames, or reflected heat. Check for the same things on whatever you are comparing the reading to.
