Do not believe the people when they say it doesn't work with the gateway. Do they not know that the gateway is designed to work with only 1 sensor? All that has to be done so the gateway works with this is to first take out the batteries for the old sensor and put them into the new sensor. Then take the batteries out of the gateway, so it resets itself. Put the batteries back into the gateway and leave the sensor close to the gateway and it does connect. If the people who claim that this doesn't work for the gateway will look at the back of both this and the old sensor, they will see they are one and the same.

I keep it enclosed in a plastic box (electrical) nailed to a fence so as to keep the rain and elements away from the unit. The electrical box unscrews so you can put new batteries in the unit. If you just put it on a holder that comes with it a a window sill, the unit will deteriorate quickly. However, I believe the trick is to keep it in a weather tight plastic (not metal) box. The telemetry goes through the plastic into your home so you get a good reading on the outside temperature. The LaCrosse clock is wonderful and easily contacts WWWV in Colorado so as to keep the time within the ambit of the atomic clock.

After about 2 years I just got my 2nd gateway for my wife ... lasted 3 days and died like the other (no power). The activation is a total PITA you basically need a CIS degree to get the things working if and WHEN something gets messed up with the account or device. My wife loves these stupid things but I guess is $2K weather station or nothing for her because I am DONE with these piles.

My old sensor stop worked after it fell on the cement. I really missed it and this new one is working perfectly. I put the batteries in and just let it sit by my monitor. When I returned it was working. Could not have been easier.

This product is ridiculous. Its one of the reasons we wrote the customer service book titled Negotiate Anything! How to Make Companies Treat You Fairly (available on Amazon). This product is so poorly designed. It simply doesn't function. I've pulled the batteries out of the base station and the individual temp readers now 3 times, but it will only read on one of the sensors (the one that came with the base station.

March 1, 2014 update: Upon further review and investigation, I noticed that while I ordered a Model TX50U wireless temperature sensor, I was shipped a Model TX29U which essentially looks the same (yet includes branding of 'Weather Direct - by LaCrosse Technology) on the front. I don't know if Amazon shipped me the wrong sensor or if it was mislabeled by LaCrosse Technology. Anyway, I will send back the TX29U and see if I can't get a TX50U which is the model sensor that came with my original shipment.

As I mentioned, I've now tried 5 times to make it sync with the base station, by pulling the batteries out of each and reinserting them in the order on the directions and within the prescribed time period.

In summary, I would not recommend this product. Way too much hassle for something that should be straight forward and simple.

March 4, 2014 update: Amazon sent me the correct Model this time, with free one day delivery (customer service excellence). I contacted the vendor to tell alert them to the face they may have mislabeled merchandise. Tonight, I will once again remove all the batteries from the base station and senders and attempt to set this up again and provide information on that experience.

This outside sensor is of very poor quality. I already had 2 sensors breaking in the winter. Each died after approximately 2 years. I would have thought that if it reads up (or rather down ) to -39.8 degrees F, it would survive -10 degrees...

Instant gratification! It works well and instantly linked to our existing weather station. I am now using it to monitor the temperature in our very warm attic.

This product works as advertised. The device must be activated online. Temperature is transmitted to the lacross website. What is not said in the advertisement is that 5 years of 'BASIC' service is included and 1 year of 'ENHANCED' service. Thus the implication is that when it expires they will ask me for money. I wish this device were peer to peer. Then Lacrosse would not be involved. I would not be sending any information about my home to them and I would not need a subscription from them. The software does work well and it tracks and alerts me on set ranges of temperature and humidity. You can have multiple sensors on each gateway. The setup is easy and straightforward. The instructions are online when you activate at the lacrossealerts.com website. I went looking for an android app. There does not seem to be a native app for android. BUT, you can hit the website from the android browser and the website is mobile enabled. I put a shortcut to the website (bookmark) on my home screen. It works well.
