I purchased this to replace the rain sensor for my La Crosse weather station. However, when I connected it up and tried to pair it with the weather station it did not work. So, I went through some diagnostics. First I checked the batteries and found them OK, then I checked the connecting pads and found the one in the battery door was missing. I simply replaced it with the one from the defective sensor and now it works. So, if you purchase this check to see there is a battery connecting pad in the cover. I don't know if Amazon reads this but if they do they should check their stock to see if others are like this. Otherwise it works fine and is a good price.

A bit difficult to set up. But that is the nature of the La Crosse base unit that uses this rain sensor. Clearing the accumulated total and seeing the report is a bit of a pain.

This from La Crosse:
RESET TOTAL RAINFALL: In normal display mode, press the MIN/MAX key 14 times to show the Total Rainfall value. The RESET icon will also be shown at the same time.
To Reset the Rainfall reading, press the PLUS key once when the rainfall value and Reset icon is shown. Then the Total Rainfall amount will be reset to 0, and the time updated to current time. 24-hour Rain cannot be reset.

I did not get much use out of the sensor since Texas had quite the drought and the base unit's display failed in less than a year. See my review on the WS-1913TWC if you are curious.

Worked great at first but eventually had a hard time keeping this connected to the weather station, kept having to reset it. Eventually ended up giving up and keeping it working. Batteries also are not sealed well in the box and the connections rusted out quickly.

I added this to my weather station when my old rain gauge (made by Oregon Scientific)stopped transmitting after about 5 years. Since I had the base station of this product and the rain gauge was an inexpensive addition, it made sense to me. It works, but the base station defaults to barometric pressure and won't stay on the rainfall (which is mode 2). There's no way that I have found to keep it there which would be my preference. Also, there's no easy way to get the rainfall to reset to 0 without pulling the batteries on everything and resetting the entire unit. My previous rain gauge kept track of 10 days at a time. This one will keep a running total and 24 hours but with no reset button I find it more difficult to use for what I wanted. So, if you want to know daily rainfall but forget to look each day, this product will be a disappointment.

Addendum 10/4/11 - The rain gauge has stopped working. I replaced all batteries and it is no longer transmitting. I guess the old adage is true - you get what you pay for and $19.95 wasn't much and didn't buy much. Very disappointing.

Set up is way too complicated. This company seems to make items that only last a limited amount of time and then you must buy an exact replacement from them at a high price. I have a friend that experienced the same problem from the same manufacturer. That tells you that maybe it's the product thats bad and not the people buying it!!!

Second one in a row that would link up with the receiver fine, but neither would record any rainfall. Nice size, nice price, good idea, if it would just work. At least Amazon makes it easy to return things.

Replaced original unit which was always "temperamental" and eventually stopped working Put batteries in new one, it synched up with the main weather unit and has been reporting accurate rainfall since.

I purchased the sensor to replace the one for my La Crosse weather station. The one I had did not work. This sensor was easy to set-up and functions as advertised. Would buy again if needed.
