5-0 out of 5 stars Are the kids freezing yet?
This thermometer is addictive. I feel like my grandpa now. If you're getting on in years, this thermometer has huge numbers (1 inch tall x 1/2 inch wide). I can't walk by them without checking the temperature. I have three of them and each base can detect all three sensors (1 in basement, 1 in garage, and 1 upstairs where the kids sleep).

The thermometer even indicates the temperature trend detected from the remote sensors. One reviewer noted that the temperature readings were different in the same room using the remote and base. I can't imagine why, except to say that the manual clearly states that you have to reset both units after installing the batteries.

The base unit can be hung on a nail or stood up like a picture frame. The remote sensor can also be hung on a nail or stood up like a picture frame. The base (main) unit supposedly has temperature alarms although I've never bothered to learn how to use them. I guess this might be nice if you had sensitive electronics or perishable food stored in a place where you wanted to be alerted if the temperature got too high or too low. It also has a temperature memory, which I also haven't bothered to learn how to use. The base displays two temperatures simultaneously - the inside temperature (where the base is located) and one remote sensor at a time. The CHANNEL button changes between sensors. There is also a switch on the back to change the display from Fahrenheit (USA) to Celsius (everybody else).

3-0 out of 5 stars Fickle on range and set up
I love weather and have had several Oregon Scientific instruments and enjoyed owning/using them. This one I bought on clearance for [$] at a local department store. The read-out is great -- big, clear and crisp. My biggest criticism is that I got no where near the distance (90 feet, I believe) claimed to be possible between transmitter and receiver. This forced me to put the receiver (main read out unit) in a place that wasn't as convenient for me. Where I wanted to put it was maybe 60 feet away from the sensor -- well, well within its rated range. It would not consistently hold a signal for that distance. A secondary criticism is the mounting bracket for the remote sensor is of a fairly cheap plastic and I am still not able to really secure it to an outside post. In theory, it slips over a couple of nail heads or screws, but it is not doing that for me. It would have had helped had OS included a paper template to use for drilling the mounting holes.

If you look beyond these criticisms, the price-value equation is favorable. And guess what -- batteries ARE included -- four of them. What a treat!

One other huge advantage: Its operating range on the low end is very good, an important consideration if you live in cold weather state. I don't think it reads to minus 20, which sometimes occurs where I live but when it's that cold, I don't want to know it, either :) Also, this unit runs on regular batteries; some competitive units require very costly lithium batteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very dependable
I live in NH where the weather changes by the hour. I have owned 2 of these units for 2 years. Just changed the batteries in all units. (Make sure you hit the reset button on the sensor and main unit in order for them to function)I depend on them a great deal. I have one upstairs facing East. Good in the morning to choose a dress mode. I also have one unit dounstairs facing West. In the Summer the dounstairs unit tells me how hot or cold it got that day. Highly recommend.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Reliable
I have owned two of these units. They both worked for a while (until the warranty ran out) and both failed. Both units will no longer display the outdoor temperture. Oregeon Scientific technical support was of no help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Green house saver
I bought this for my husband and he gave it rave reviews. He put the remote unit in his green house and so far, the results are great. I am trying to find out how to order additional remote sensors. We have 5 acres and we want to monitor the temperature at various spots on the property. We are very pleased with this device and highly recommend it. ... Read more

What makes this sensor so good is that it is wireless! I have not had any trouble using the sensor, works through wood and brick easily. It has a local digital readout so you can also use it for a display where you are monitoring. It mounts handily using two screws, and it is removable from the mounting bracket.

This thermometer displays the current indoor and outdoortemperature at the same time or can be set to display the maximum orminimum indoor and outdoor temperatures. No matter what is beingdisplayed, the unit will continue to memorize temperature highs andlows and can post them at the touch of a button. An internal sensordetects the indoor temperature while a sensor probe on a 12-foot cableprovides an accurate outdoor reading; the temperature is sampled every10 seconds in both locations. Temperatures are displayed in eitherFahrenheit or Celsius and measure ranges from 32 to 122 degrees F (0 to50 degrees C) indoors and -58 to 158 degrees F (-50 to 70 degrees C)outdoors. With its jumbo display, this thermometer is easy to seefrom across a room.

No more squinting at a column of mercury to learn whether it'sa jacket day or a shorts day. This handsome remote thermometer displaysindoor and outdoor temperatures in large, easy-to-read digital numbers.Simply place the remote sensor outside and keep the main receiver uniton a desk or wall. Or, place the sensor in the baby's room or winecellar, where every degree counts. Three channels let the main unitsupport up to three sensors, so temperature can be monitored in variousrooms and/or outdoor locations. A transmission range of 90 feet ispossible between the sensor and main unit, and the sensor itselffeatures an LCD display to show current readings. A memory functionretains maximum and minimum temperatures. The four-line display on themain unit shows temperatures to a tenth of a degree, in eitherFahrenheit or Celsius, as well as current time, alarm set time, andtime zone map. Radio signals from the U.S. atomic clock keep the clockautomatically synchronized. The main indoor unit measures 5-3/8 by4-1/4 by 1 inch; batteries are included for both units. Backed by athree-month warranty against defects, this thermometer should giveyears of accurate temperature readings. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great item, couldn't live without it!
I have had this model of Oregon Scientific thermometer and clock for about a year and a half and it sure is handy. I live in the south and I really need to know what the temprature is, if it's approaching freezing, to know if I need to bring my plants in. Of course we get the weather on t.v. but it comes from San Antonio and is not always accurate for our area. What I used to do was shine a flash light through my kitchen window and watch my dial thermometer to see the temprature. Now I always know the indoor and outdoor temprature and the exact time which sets itself for daylight savings time, one less thing to worry about. I would recommend this item to everyone who wants or needs to know the outdoor temperature.

4-0 out of 5 stars Only measures to 4 below zero Fahrenheit.
First of all, the lowest temperature that this unit will measure (according to the manual) is minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit. It gets way colder than that here. When it does, I want to know it! Also, the remote unit uses batteries and some batteries freeze and stop working. Lithium or titanium batteries will solve that problem since they will operate at a much lower temperature than regular batteries. Look for lithium/titanium batteries in electronics or camera stores. Anyway, this is a perfectly good unit if you live in a warmer climate than I do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice---But
This is a nice unit. It looks good, and was easy to set up. With one improtant exception. For some reason the batteries for the remote unit, the reset button, and a few control switches are behind a panel with four tiny screws. And I mean tiny, and the screws themselves are made from a soft metal and it would be very easy to strip out the screw heads. Why they didn't use a sliding door I'll never know.
So when you take off this panel don't take the screws all the way out, they are very hard to get threaded back into the panel.
And lastly I had a 2 degree temperature differential between the base station, and the remote sensor when they were sitting right next to each other, but they may just be this set.

Nice, very nice, works great. Remote unit/sender seems too nice to locate outside, but I did and after a month still works fine

No more squinting at a column of mercury to learn whether it'sa jacket day or a shorts day. This two-unit, remote thermometeraccurately displays the indoor temperature (inside a house symbol), aswell as the outdoor temperature in larger digital numbers. Simply placethe remote sensor unit outside, whether on a porch table or mounted onthe side of the house, and keep the main receiver unit on a desk orwall. Or, place the sensor in the baby's room or wine cellar, whereevery degree counts. A 32-yard (30-meter) transmission range ispossible between the two units, and the sensor sends data to thereceiver every 30 seconds.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fine System, displayed range is for warmer climates.
When the Oregon Scientific Cable-Free Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer model MTR101 came up in my Gold Box offer, I checked out the specifications on Oregon Scientific's web page. This is what I found:

Displayed range: 14.2 degrees Fahrenheit to 158 degrees Fahrenheit (-9.9 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees Celsius)

I trust Oregon Scientific's quality as I have used their products in the past. However, this particular unit would not be much use to me because I live far enough North that it can get down to 20 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. 14 degrees Fahrenheit is a heat wave around here, especially after the cold, cold winter that we've had this year. Anyway, this is a perfectly fine and extremely well-priced unit for warmer parts of the world.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great gift for the weather watchers in your life!
Ever wonder who watches the Weather Channel? Lots and lots of people, and these are the people who will love this product. I gave it to my husband for Christmas. He's usually very difficult to buy for, but this was a hit! He was always looking outside at the outdoor thermometer, which wasn't all that accurate to begin with, and difficult to see at night. Now he can sit in the comfort of his easy chair and tell you exactly what the temperature is, indoors or out, any time of the day or night. He can put it on his nightstand and see it when he wakes up and use the information to help him select the right clothes to go outside. The alarm feature that operates when the temperature drops below zero was evidently disabled when we got it. However, the directions tell you about that so you don't have an unpleasant surprise in the middle of the night. My next gift would be to add a couple of additional remotes - he thinks it would be useful to know what the temperature is in the garage. If you want to know the temperature, you'll enjoy this product. One thing I think would make this product better would be if the display was lighted to make it easier to see in the dark. Perhaps the more expensive models have this feature?

4-0 out of 5 stars The temperature ...and a little more...
First and foremost, it's a great thermometer. It works just as advertised. I set my remote sensor 50 feet away on the fence and it records the temperature perfectly!

That said, I do have one caution. The unit was developed to give a warning once the temperature drops below 2 degrees C (About 37F). I had placed the monitor unit in my bedroom and the first night that I put it up, the warning went off. I was half dressed before I realized it wasn't my alarm clock going off at 2:00 am! You can bypass this feature by setting the switch in the back to unit 2 or 3. I encourage you to do this unless you live in an area that doesn't get cold in the winter! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great clock!
The projection is great! And the red light wouldn't 'dilate your pupils' so you can fall right back to sleep. It works! The atomic clock sync up feature is also very good. However, the first sync up takes a while to work, so you get less of a 'wow' factor out of the box.

A few little problems with this clock:

. if you have *really* bad eyes, you might not see the projected clock reading. Not sure what the manufacturer can do about that.

. the timezone button is right next to the 'stop the alarm' button (the snooze button is on the top of the unit). What happened to me was that I stopped the alarm but went back to sleep for a few more minutes. Turned out I changed the timezone too, so I got a little shock when I got up.

. the alarm sound is crescendo, but I wish it starts out a little softer. The beeps are quite sharp.

5-0 out of 5 stars I really like this clock.
My wife and I really like this clock. Having the time projected on the ceiling in large numbers is very convenient for both of us. I like the thermometer. Also having the clock check its time against the US Atomic clock is a plus. Finally the crescendo alarm is great. We like it so much we are giving some of these clocks as Christmas presents. ...

Sleep soundly with this precision dual-alarm clock by the bed.An internal thermometer digitally displays the room temperature toone-tenth of a degree; deviations from the norm might signal a furnacemalfunction, change in weather, or even a house fire. The weekday alarmcan be programmed to go off Monday through Friday at the same time andautomatically skip Saturday and Sunday. The single alarm will go offonce at the preset time. Radio signals from the U.S. atomic clock keepthe clock automatically synchronized. An hour-offset function (+/- 9hours) displays other time zones. Select one of five languages todisplay the day of the week, and choose either a 12- or 24-hour formatfor the time. Pressing the snooze button will activate the white,noiseless backlight, which goes off after five seconds to save batterywear.

3-0 out of 5 stars Time Zone Madness
This clock, like all other OS clocks, does not give you the ability to say whether or not you want daylight-savings-time. If you live in Arizona, you will have to set the time zone to Pacific for the summer months and then back to Mountain for the winter! THIS IS A MAJOR PAIN TWICE A YEAR. My radio controlled clocks from SkyScan have an option for daylight-savings-time. Why can't OS do this?

Other than that, I love the auto-set feature AND the fact that it has the CORRECT TIME!

If you live in a time-zone that switches to daylight-savings-time, you will love these clocks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay......
Good points: Compact, looks nice, time set itself within an hour even though cellphones, pagers, palm pilots work erratically here. Less than good points: Instructions incomprehensible, alarm barely audible (to a hard-of-hearing person). Worth it for the auto-time and accurate temperature display.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK, but...
First of all, this product has the worst set of instructions I have ever used. Incomprehensible! English cannot possibly be the first language of its author - the Internal Revenue Code is easier to decipher. (OK, I'm an accountant.) However, the customer service reps at OS seem to be pretty used to this - a call them for assistance had me up and running, albeit waiting for my "signal"...

The first "setting" tooks days and days (and we live only 30 minutes outside Boston)- I was about ready to give up and return it when it finally caught the signal. However, for some reason, the second time it set itself like a charm after only a few minutes.

Because of the instruction manual mess, fiddling with the clock to change the alarm settings, set the right time zone and get the days of the week to show in English is trial and error and easily forgotten between battery changes (about 6 mos for us).

Overall, it's a nice little product, but setting an alarm clock shouldn't be so stressful. Life is too short. My advice: spend a few more dollars and shop around for something a whole lot less frustrating. Oregon Scientific, are you listening?

3-0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but...
I bought this clock because I wanted an inexpensive clock that also had a built-in thermometer. However, I quickly realized having the alarm function built-in is simply a novelty.

My first problem: the "crescendo alarm" does not beep gently and "build in intensity" as advertised (or at least as Ann Bieri's featured editorial review claims). The initial sound is quite loud and jarring, not even remotely resmbling gentle. After the first minute the volume stays at the same level with the tone beeping at double-time. After the second minute, the alarm stops. There is no way to change any of these settings. However, if you hit the "snooze" button, the alarm will go off 8 minutes later like most alarm clocks.

My second problem with this clock arises from the two alarm settings. The first alarm, the "Single Alarm," can only be set to go off once. Once it goes off, you'll have to set it again. The second, the "Weekday Alarm," will beep at the specified time from Monday through Friday. However, in a strange twist of irony, once you set this "Weekday Alarm," you can't unset or clear it, which means your alarm may disturb the neighbors if you're away on a trip. The only way to clear the "Weekday Alarm" is to remove the batteries, which will reset all your time and date settings.

Third? As mentioned in an earlier user review, the instructions (especially the diagrams) are terrible. They aren't very intuitive, and I had an easier time figuring out how the clock works on my own.

With several features packed into one unit, I can only assume some shortcuts were taken, which explains the deficiency of what I think are some important features. Perhaps I should just buy a separate alarm clock and keep this one in the kitchen...

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect
I have had this unit for several months now. I love the Monday throught Friday alarm. No remembering to turn in on during the week or turning it off on Saturday. It is such a great idea, I don't know why more companies don't make weekday alarms. Technically, this unit clock, alarm, and thermometer are wonderful. Always works, always accurate. On the minus sign, I do not like an unlit clock at night, and the the only way for me to check the time at night is to pick the clock up and put it in front of my face while pushing the light button. The white backlight in terrible, shines at the wrong angle for LCD, and eats batteries. I find some of the controls a little difficult to use. Daily things are easy to do (snooze, alarm off...). Occasional funtions are a trial and error process (set new alarm time). I would advise Oregon Scientific to use two AA batteries for for heft and duration, and switch to an 'indiglo' type back light. Maybe an AC adaptor for those of use who don't need an atomic travel clock, but want to see the time at 3:00 a.m. I love this clock. It is almost perfect. ... Read more

I bought this instrument to measure temps in my wellhouse, which is about 70 ft. from my living room. This thermometer uses 433 MHz. technology, which makes it way overpriced, considering I have purchased 2.4 GHz. instruments ...BR>About a week after I set this up, the main unit stopped displaying the outside temp. I replaced the batteries in both, and repositioned the remote unit. This worked for a short while. . . . I have yet to figure out why the main unit can't seem to hold an outside temperature reading, even at a seemingly short range. . . ... Read more
