Product Review by Terence Philippe
Do you ever wonder how cold it got the previous night while you were sleeping in your warm bed, or what the high temperature was at your home in the summer while you were dipping your toes in Lake of the Woods. Well, I’m a statistic freak and I’m always wondering such things and logging such useful information in my journals, so when we received the new La Crosse Indoor Outdoor Min/Max Thermometer I was the first to unwrap one and take it home for a test!
Here’s how it works: you place a tiny transmitter (takes two AAA batteries) outside in a protected spot, then you power-up the main display unit (two AA batteries), and viola, you are instantly receiving accurate (it records to tenths of a degree, e.g., 78.8˚) temperatures. Press a large button on the bottom of the display and you receive a high and low temperature for inside and out. You can clear the high/low at any time by pressing and holding the same button for a few seconds. It also has a large easy to read digital display and can be stood on a counter or hung, and the transmitter has a range of over 200 feet, so you can place the display anywhere in your home. The main display shows both current indoor and outdoor temps and the larger display can be cycled to have either the inside temperature or outdoor temperature as the main larger display.
I’m impressed at its ease of set-up, accuracy, big and bold numbers for the display, and its clean and simple design. Mine now sits just above my kitchen sink and when its display hits the magic number, I know I can go for a bike ride!
A definite recommendation from me!
