Product Description

The La Crosse Technology TX29U-IT 915 MHz Wireless Temperature Sensor is used in conjunction with La Crosse Technology wireless temperature stations that use the 915 MHz Instant Transmission wireless technology.
In order to establish proper communication between the display and outdoor transmitter it is important that they be set up as follows:
1. Bring both units inside and have the units 3-5 feet apart with nothing in-between them.
2. Remove the batteries from both units.
3. Press one of the buttons on the display at least 20 times to clear all memory. Verify that the display is blank before proceeding.
4. Using a good quality alkaline battery place them back into the remote sensor; making sure they are installed according to the diagrams in the battery compartment. Next, taking care not to press any buttons, reinstall the batteries in the display according to the diagram in the battery compartment.
5. Do not press any buttons for at least 15 minutes after installing the batteries. (Let them establish a good connection.
An outdoor temperature should be showing on your display. You can now put your outdoor sensor back outside.

Will buy again if necessary.

Often looses signal from the remote temperature sensor, you either need to wait and it may start working or remove all the batteries.
Jon
I replaced the batteries (old and new ones are Duracell Ultras) in both sensors and everything is working great again.

First off, heed the warnings from the manufacturer: don't put these in locations where they can get heavily rained on, and don't put them in direct sunlight.

I purchased this sensor as an add-on to a LaCrosse Weather Station so I can monitor an additional location. I've had it for a number of months now. This sensor is located in the backyard, attached to a deck underneath an overhang so it doesn't get too wet.

I live in a part of the country where the winters are long and harsh. We've had temperatures below freezing for almost two months straight now, with a low of -15F so far this season, and this sensor is still working. If it makes it through May (the end of our winter) I'll be surprised. I'll post an update if I have any problems!

UPDATE: Sept 28, 2009 (9 months after original review above): This sensor lasted all winter and summer, despite having snow accumulate on the top during the winter and lows of -15F and winds of 80mph... amazing. Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have as good of luck this winter too!

UPDATE 2: April 24, 2010 (16 months after original review): Sensor still going strong, and still using the original battery! Made it through another long and harsh winter. For the price and considering the weather this sensor has endured, it is an AMAZING value. If I wish to replace the indoor weather station in the future, I will definitely look for one that is compatible with these sensors.

UPDATE 3: November 17, 2010 (23 months after original review): I almost feel ridiculous coming back here to update on this product again, but this thing is still working. I just don't understand it!

This wireless temperature sensor works extremely well and is easy
to set up - but you absolutely must follow the directions exactly.

Range is excellent - but just make sure that some large object such
as a metal shed or a large oak tree is not in line-of-sight between
any of the transmitters and the receiver.

I am using 3 of these temp sensors with the 915 MHz receiver. One
sensor came with the receiver, and I just purchased two more, since the
receiver can display up to three different temperatures from three
sensors. However be advised that if you carry one or more of these
sensors out of range and the receiver loses track of it, you absolutely
must take the batteries out of all three sensors and out of the
receiver and re-initialize all of them. This is not a difficult step,
since I did it several times while playing around with the sensors to
see how much range they had - which resulted in the receiver losing
track of one of them.

When you first see the instruction booklet that comes with the receiver,
it looks daunting, but not to worry, since only a tiny part of it is in
English, with all the rest in other languages. Once the temp sensors are
initialized, then it takes only a few seconds to set the clock.

I read in other reviews that some buyers had problems getting their
receiver to respond to some sensors, but that is because the buyers failed
to properly re-initialize their units. Also be advised that if you buy
a display unit that receives transmissions at 915 MHz, then you absolutely
must buy sensors that also transmit at 915 MHz. Several of the sensors
that are sold by Amazon look alike, but not all of them use 915 MHz, so
carefully read the tech specs to make sure that both the transmitter and
the receiver operate at 915 MHz.

Bought this to replace one that was mounted too low and got fried when snow covered it. Works fine. The trick with these units is to replace the batteries in all devices that talk to each other at the same time. Change the batteries in this first, then the other device(s) within one minute. When the batteries get low they won't talk and if you don't change them in this order they will not communicate.

I am now on my 4th LaCrosse transmiter. All the others died due to moisture and corrosion. We live in Central Florida and summers usually run >90% humidity. All the comments about LaCrosse customer service are true. I could get as much help calling the manager of my local ice cream shop as from them. They are clueless.

The usual replies are:
1. Change the batteries (did that)
2. Buy a new one. (Check for correct frequency)

Now wait six months and start with step one again. :P

Don't even think of sending it back for repair. It's cheaper and faster to just buy one.....again.

The old fogies all time comment, "We can put a man on the moon,but LaCrosse can't make a waterproof transmitter"

If its where rain can reach it it can quit functioning. As it is to be used outside how do you NOT get rained on. My first one died.

As previously mentioned, getting this sensor wet can cause it to quit functioning, which is really not very impressive for a weather sensor! I have a remote sensor attached to the grill of my automobile that gets rather wet quite often and still functions correctly, so why can't this one?
