BETTER THAN I EXPECTED!!!

by S. David Ahn

The negative reviews almost scared me away from this product, but I couldn't find anything else that does what this does, so I bought it anyway. I'm SO glad I did!

I'm using this system to monitor vaccine refrigerators and a vaccine freezer to alert me when the vaccines are at risk from high or low temperatures. I received it this morning, set it up between patients in a total of about 10-15 minutes total for gateway and two sensors (see Setup section below). I went to dinner after work, and as I was finishing, I got a text message about a high temperature, then another one about 15 minutes later. I returned to the office, and sure enough, the vaccine fridge door was ajar. The probe lead that goes from the sensor in the fridge to the probe in the freezer may have caused a poor door seal because it was on the handle side, so I moved the lead's exit point to the hinge side. But whether it caused the door to be ajar or not, the alert still saved my vaccines tonight!

Note that the main sensor body takes a while to acclimate to large temperature changes. I went from room temperature (74.8 F) to a refrigerator (about 41 F), and it changed at a rate of about 1.4 F per minute (20.8 F in 15 minutes). The external probe seems to acclimate right away. The wireless range seems to be good, though my office isn't that large. One refrigerator is 16' from the La Crosse network gateway with 3 walls in between, with the sensor INSIDE the refrigerator; the other is 54 feet away with 9 intervening walls at oblique angles to the wireless path, also inside a refrigerator. The "link quality" shows 100% for both! Color me impressed.

Setup was MUCH easier than I expected based on the reviews; I don't know if they've improved the procedure or instructions, but it was SUPER easy and painless. Start with the instructions on the license key card: go to the site given and enter the software key. Then it has you register as a user, then leads you through extremely simple step-by-step online instructions on installing the network gateway, and then you follow the same easy to follow online instructions for the sensor. If you bought additional sensors, click on the "+" sign in the status page (where the big temperature displays are) to add another sensor. It says your license only authorizes one sensor; find the place where you enter a new software key which the sensor comes with. Then follow the same simple online instructions to enable the second sensor.

What do I mean it's better than I expected (title of my review)? I assumed the sensor monitors one temperature using the probe. In fact, the SENSOR body measures temperature and humidity, and the PROBE measures a SEPARATE temperature! So I had bought 3 additional sensors to monitor my two refrigerators, one freezer, and one spare, but now I have 2 spares, each able to measure two spaces (as long as they're close enough for the probe lead to span), so immediately, I will use them to monitor the temperature of my server closets (my wife's office and mine). I have had failures of 3 separate split A/C units in the past, and this will help avoid frying my server hardware in the future!

One odd thing I've reported to technical support just now: the refrigerator temperature alert range was +36 F to +45 F and worked as expected. But the freezer alert range is set to -29 F to +4 F, and I have gotten two SMS alerts at -8.6 F and -7.5 F, both within the good range. I'm assuming because it's not processing the negative number properly. I hope they fix this soon, but it's more of an annoyance than a real problem. When I REALLY NEEDED an alert this evening, it came through and saved my vaccines!

Overall, I'm SUPER pleased at how easy it was to set up and with its functionality. Not perfect yet, but already AWESOME.

Revised Review - I found the solution!

by Kim from IA

I have an older model of this device and it was not easy to get it working or keep it working. We purchased this newer model for our church and so far it has been flawless. The web site doesn't like Safari but you can get around that. If it fails to perform, I will update this review.

Update after about a year of messing around with this thing: Can't get the older model to run for more than a month. At about a month it goes off-line and has to be reset. Bummer. This newer model at church is doing fine. I don't know if this one is just bad or if the old vs new model is the issue.

Update October 2013: The support problem I encountered with Lacrosse was that the web site and other electronic means of communicating with their support department is not good. It's either staffed by people that are unable to respond or it's just broke. So, as a last resort, I sent a letter (yes- snail mail) to their headquarters, c/o support, explaining the above. Lo-and-behold, I almost immediately received an e-mail from a real person asking me to ship it to them. So I did and they return-shipped replacement parts (a new sensor and a new receiver/internet interface). This was an out-of warranty unit folks. The replacements work perfectly. This is very unusual but I'll take it. Obviously, they have a problem they need to solve but at least give them credit for recovering when the right person got to do their job. I'm a support professional and know how this can happen. Hopefully they will fix their support department issues as a result of this. I am changing my rating from 2* to 4*.

Works, but not quick or as reliable as one would hope

by paperbackaddict

Revision after owning this a couple of months now:

Seems to work reliably over the long haul - while I am still not satisfied with the slow response from technical support and not pleased they just happened to have server problems when I first purchased the item, overall, I would say it's a good product. It seems the status updates are now timely, within a few minutes.

Original review:

I purchased this directly from the La Crosse website (my mistake) as Amazon was out of stock. It was easy to set up and the correct temperature displays on the thermostat LCD, but here is what is weak:

- It took a nine days to get a response from technical support that was not helpful
- I contacted technical support because I did not receive SMS alerts when testing. The response after nine days was, "On the day in question, the servers were being worked on. Please try again"
- It takes 15-18 minutes before the server sends a text or email message when out of temperature range (if it sends at all)
- The return policy at La Crosse only allows return of DOA or wrong items. Amazon is the way to go.

The weakness of this technology is it relies on a server instead of directly having a web server on the product like IP cameras do.

The web page and historical graph are nice looking and useful though. It's useful as a product however I'm disappointed in the support and queasy about using their server.
