Alarm/weather station with no program??
I really wanted to like the projector alarm clock weather station that I got at Costco, but am so disappointed by the app, that I might return it. I was excited by the prospect of allowing my kids to see the forecast as they woke up, to help them prepare for the day ahead, but the utter lack of design in the alarm’s program features render it almost useless. There needs to be a better way to program the alarm in the app, for which days it should be on and off. Seems like it would be really easy to add this feature, so that you can program a M-F alarm and not worry about turning it off every weekend and back on again for weekdays. Can this be incorporated into an update?? I hope so or I’ll be returning them soon.
The app also doesn’t allow you to delete any erroneous stations that are inadvertently created. Which would be another easy fix.
I like the display, and the projection features, but wish there was a radio option built in for the alarm.
And even though you can turn on and off the alarm with the app, the change is not initiated right away, and so it’s hard to tell if the alarm is actually being set or not. And when I get frustrated and turn it on annually, if I forget to change the app’s “on” setting, the alarm will turn itself back off through the app.
This could be a really great product if they make a few small changes, but as it is, I’m more frustrated than happy with it.
Unexpected and Exceptional
Got this as a unexpected gift and had no idea the amount of detail it actually offers. The set up was good with one issue: No Wireless MAC Address label to be found. So I disabled my MAC filtering on the WiFi router, connected it, went into my router’s settings on the internet and saw the address that way, added it to my address list and re-enabled the filter. The app works seamlessly on an iPhone 7 Plus. I have experienced zero issues. You can also add other sensors that you buy for a cottage, barn, or dog house etc and use your personal pictures as a background for each location of the sensor you wish to see readings on. This set up with the app and device is working so far. I’ll update my review in 2 months but as of now it works perfectly.
4 months later and everything is going good sensor wise but display wise there’s issues. I just managed my data stream, deleted cloud cover which only reads a percentage and says auto/auto next to it in the ticker, deleted snow accumulation which read normal, added wind speed, and possibility of damaging thunderstorms, and for some reason it won’t update correctly and I get an error in the app.
I took two stars away
Indoor temperature and humidity only. Really?
There are a number of personal weather stations on the market. Weather Underground has thousands they tap for neighborhood weather worldwide. At Costco it looked like this was an abridged feature set version of a full featured weather station. I could expect to get world wide access to the outdoor weather at my house. Cool. Only it's not so intuitively obvious. It will do both outdoor and indoor readings on the app, but only after you enter both the indoor console and any outdoor sensors separately.
Setup is also dicey. You apparently need to not be just on the same Wi-Fi network, you also need to be on the same frequency band. That means going far away in your house where the 5 GHz signal is not predominant on your phone. The LaCrosse device is on the 2.4 GHz band only. Not spelled out in the instructions. Overall I guess it might be worth what I paid for it, but it's very poor marketing. Could it be fixed by better firmware and software? Of course. It's just we'll never see that on our devices.
