Setup was a snap. Within 1 minute, I was getting readings from the remote, and by the next morning, I had atomic clock syncing and enough of a pressure history to accurately predict that day's deteriorating weather. Since I have no idea what the actual barometric pressure is at my location, I set the relative pressure to the reading available on the Weather Channel (fortunately, we're all pretty well at the same elevation).
I can't say I am 100% convinced of the temperature and humidity accuracy -impossible to know without professional equipment to compare it to. All I know is I have three hygrometers in my apartment (two digital, including this one, and one analog). I set all three within 1' of each other, left them overnight, and got three wildly different readings the next morning. This unit claimed 28%, another La Crosse remote (from an older unit) claimed 38%, and the analog claimed 20%
The digital thermostat on my AC unit is set to 75 degrees, and this unit says it's 80 degrees indoors.
Like they say, a man with two watches never knows what time it is.
Other than not knowing whether or not this thing is even close to accurate, I can say with confidence that it looks just peachy sitting on my entertainment unit. Maybe after I confirm the accuracy, I'll post a follow-up.
