La Crosse Technology 18 Inch Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer & Hygrometer Wall Clock WT-3181PL

Keep track of time with the utmost precision while working in the garden, splashing in the pool, or barbecuing on the patio with this 18-inch outdoor atomic wall clock from La Crosse Technology. Radio-controlled by the national atomic clock in Colorado, the clock resets daily to the hour, minute, and second for continued accuracy. Additionally, the clock adjusts automatically for daylight savings time. Equipped with a thermometer and a hygrometer, the clock also assesses and relates temperature and humidity levels to help users protect seedlings from frost, avoid over-watering finicky plants, and take precautions against an icy walkway. Surrounded by a sleek silver-painted plastic frame, the clock face features black 1-1/6-inch-high numbers for easy visibility. Elegant, black metal hands tick off the hours and minutes. For temperature and humidity readings, the clock face displays two small analog gauges. The hygrometer gauge measures from 1 to 99 percent relative humidity, while the temperature gauge gives readings for temperatures from -10 to +130 degrees Fahrenheit, or -30 to +60 degrees Celsius. On the backside of the clock, the user selects the appropriate US time zone; the clock accommodates Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific times. A manual reset button is provided. To ensure accurate readings, hang the clock in a dry area out of direct sunlight. This clock requires the separate purchase of one AA battery for operation. A one-year limited warranty covers this item. The clock measures 18 inches wide by 2-1/2 inches deep by 18 inches high and weighs near 6 pounds upon shipping.

I know the owners manual and website say this item is only good for outdoors if left dry and above 41 degrees, however I can honestly dispute that.

I have had 2 of these clocks outside in my backyard since December 2005 (over 4+ years).. no issues at all. The 2 clocks outside are on a fence where it gets beat up by all the storms and hot sun... as well as this past winter, we got down to 8 degrees (yes, 8 degrees in Dallas).... the clocks are both still running great! absolutely no impact by the storms or deep cold. The other is mounted on the house where it gets beat up by the cold, sun and heavy steam from the Hot Tub... also no issues.

So regardless of what the website or owners manaual says, I can vouch that these clocks work great over many years in deep cold, strong winds, heavy storms (and yes, getting totally soaked) and direct Texas Sun.

I HIGHLY recommend these for all

I own four of La Crosse's so called "Radio Controlled", or "Atomic", clocks ... all four originally worked perfect, then all four failed on the same day (still indicating that they received the NIST signal, but failing to re-set the clock). I understand that the NIST transmission was upgraded on that day, but they say that no existing receivers should be effected, the original time data is still on the signal, and it was just an upgrade. I did my research on the web, and found that thousands of other La Crosse clock users had the same problem. In other words, the La Crosse engineers should have designed a system that would tolerate upgrades to the signal.

I contacted La Crosse, carefully explaining the situation, and asking if they were going to do the right thing, and provide a solution, or new working clocks. They responded with a standard form letter, suggesting that I "try changing the batteries", or "try moving the clocks to a different location". I responded explaining that I had already tried all of that, and I again carefully explained that all four clocks functioned perfectly, and all four failed on the same day (still indicating that they received the NIST signal, but failing to re-set the clock) ... this is not a battery or location issue, it's an engineering failure.

The final response from La Crosse was that my clocks are "out of warranty", so it's my problem, not theirs.

So let me ask you this ... if a company refuses to do the right thing, and replace a product with an obvious design flaw, why would anyone ever buy a product from them again?

Great clock for indoor use. Can only be used outdoors, if kept warm and dry. All advertising states it's weatherproof. The owner's manual and manufacturer website state otherwise. Very disappointed as I purchased specifically for outdoor use.

I've had this clock for about a year. It worked fine throughout the winter even in -10F temperatures. In the summer, it catches some late afternoon sun, but this doesn't seem to have harmed it. The original alkaline batteries are still working.

This item, sold as an outdoor device, can't be left outdoors if temperadture falls to 41 degrees or lower because, as the manual explains, it will not work below that tempoerature. Itis not water tight, either. Perhaps okay for a covered porch in the tropics but not useless in N. America.

Why is it being sold for outdoor use?

I have returned this item.

Actually, I give it no stars.

Nice clock. All I had to do was put a AA battery in it and in about 2 hours it set itself. It's been hanging outside for about a month now in the rain and heat with no problem. Since I live in the south, this has been quite the test for a clock. No complaints here.

This clock is terrible. Even worse, I have left several detaled voice messages (after going through voice mail hell). The clock is about 15 minutes behind the correct time. I have tried setting the time manually and moved it around to different locations. I got only one call back. They left a message that they got a call from me but no explanation regarding my problem. They obviously didnt bother to listen to my detailed MESSAGES. The manual says NEED HELP WITH SETUP BEFORE YOU RETURN THIS PRODUCT CALL 1-608 .... WHAT A JOKE. It's been several days now and I still have not received any help. I also emailed the tech support address provided; again no response. I have also discovered (IN THE MANUAL) that the clock can't get wet, etc. One of my questions, if I ever got through to them, is why they advertise the clock as an outdoor clock. Save yourself the time and aggravation. Great concept but terrible company / tech support. Voice mail hell sounds like an amatuer operation.

We purchased 5 of these to use at an outdoor event throughout the grounds. With 5 of these, it gives a good basis for the problems involved.
We followed the instructions and after the initial battery installation, they all held at 4:00 waiting for the signal. Once they received it, 3 ended up at the same time, while 2 were off by several minutes.
The clocks initially set themselves to Pacific Time and then needed to be set to Eastern.
For the 3 that ended up at the same time, let's say 7:35, when pressing the ET button on back, one ends up at 10:35 (properly) and the other 2 end up at 10:31 and 10:16. This has nothing to do with an improper signal, as these 3 had the same initial time. The control board inside is bad in multiple units.

We ended up continuing to use our old manual clocks...we were better being a minute or two off over having random clock times.

It is not a signal distance issue as we also purchased 3 digital ones and those all work fine.
