App Reviews

  • Indoor temperature and humidity only. Really?

    By Santiago the Weatherman
    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.
  • Discouraged Update

    By PDF Monger
    Got a replacement temp and humidity sensor from the nice folks at Lacrosse and finally have everything communicating nicely. Got station uploading to Weather Underground which allows me to use their advanced WunderStation app. This is a very nice option on the iPad for viewing my stations data. My wife likes the Lacrosse View app on her phone but we can’t figure out why, even though the station displays the outside temp as well as the “feels like” temp, when viewing the outdoor temp/humidity device screen, the lacrosse view app always shows outdoor temperature and exactly the same temp in a smaller font below it with the words “Heat Index”. This shows even when the temp is 20 degrees and the wind is gusting to 40 mph. Right now the station says “Outdoor 35 F” with a wind speed of 15 mph and “Feels Like 26”. The Lacrosse View App outdoor temp/humidity device page says 35 with Heat index 35. Any ideas about that one? The WunderStation App has it all right, up to the second. I’d like to get this Lacrosse View App working right for the sake of the phone. Thx for any help.
  • Disappointed at first. Happy now.

    By Nannykris
    I was excited to buy the weather station. When I got it home, had it mounted and got it connected to the app I was disappointed because the app only showed dashes. I called Lacrosse and was left on hold for 2 hours. When they answered they took my information and said the issue would be looked into and I would receive a call inn24 hours. Well I never received a call. So I called back. This time a very helpful young lady answered. She said a trouble ticket had not been entered. At this point I was livid. 😡. She too the information once again and said there is a known issue with the app but it will be fixed quickly. She told me to keep Checking the app. So 15 minutes later I checked the app and it’s working great now! If I would not have this issue I would have rated this 5 stars. But customer service is golden!

    This thing actually connected to my phone with minimal difficulty (I was inputting the wrong network password; frustrating, but totally my fault). Many reviewers say it only shows the indoor temp and humidity. It will show the rain and wind speed on your mobile device if you follow directions and scan their barcode to add them to the network. The You Tube video made by Lacrosse was very helpful. Also, if you want all the info on one screen, tap the device name at the top center of the screen. It will display "quick view". Now the bad: as another reviewer stated, it stayed connected for about a day. It was nice while it lasted, graphs of temperature, wind, and (probably) rain; outdoor temperature recorded and displayed every 3 minutes or so. Pretty cool, until it didn't do it anymore. The base unit displays "no connect to app server", so I guess there's something I'm supposed to do to reconnect. This gets old, and most likely won't work when I'm away. Other than that, as a weather station "on site", it's pretty good. The remote units have a good range and haven't lost connection with the base as my previous station did several times each day. So, not bad, but not great. I probably won't be taking it back to Costco, but I also won't be running out to get another.
  • Station great, WIFI/app not great

    By carefree c
    The weather station works well and is easy to set up and view. A reliable connection with WIFI and ability to view on the app is not guaranteed. Any drop of WIFI or brief loss of power causes the app to become useless. If you can physically access the base station you can go through the reconfigure process to quickly bring it back on line... however, your phone and station must be within 10 feet of each other. Not helpful if you are away from home and want to monitor weather changes. This also seems to cause a deletion of data when restored. We were relying on this station to provide information about rain/snow fall. Disappointed, but at the price of the station we are not at a great loss. Will look for another more reliable station to provide this critical data.
  • Losing patience

    By dwarniment
    They’ve been saying for weeks that they are upgrading their equipment to handle the amount of users, but I’m losing patience. I don’t think they were ready for the Costco bump. The app works sometimes, even the most recent stripped down version. It doesn’t save any historical data, so you’re better off just looking at the weather center. Rain gauge hasn’t worked in the app for a long time, even though it works at the main base. How long will it take to perform as was promised when I bought this? Aside from that, the user interface is wonky. Why they feel the need for a picture that takes up almost the entire screen is unknown, it’s unnecessary. Also when it starts up it only gives one sensor, there should be a home screen that has them all on. You can get there by clicking the top of the screen, but you have to do that every time. Why don’t they make the app look like the base station?
  • The app goes wonky, and you won’t know why.

    By WAGinWNY
    I love this kind of stuff, and this app is very cool when it’s working properly. But there is so much communication going on between your devices, your wi-fi router, this app, the NWS server, and probably a LaCrosse server out there somewhere, that something is bound to go SNAFU from time to time. Problem is, when that happens, it’s difficult to know what might need to be reset, and this is all against the backdrop of an insistence on a 2.4Ghz radio signal from your wi-fi equipment. I’m a retired IT guy and end up drawing blanks. If the engineers — and those who write documentation — made a priority out of elevating this app to top-class status, then LaCrosse would be able to charge triple for their wi-fi enabled weather stations. Until that happens, their business will not rise to meet its full potential.
  • Not what I expected

    By lar52
    After reading all the reviews, I couldn’t believe this app would only show the indoor temp & humidity. I figured everybody was missing a selection in the settings or something but nope, I just went thru the setup and linking process and just like many other reviewers complained....THIS APP WILL ONLY SHOW THE INDOOR TEMP AND HUMIDITY!!! Somebody really dropped the ball or, La Crosse thought they could fly this by and nobody would notice. None of the developer comments have addressed this issue....perhaps because this can’t be addressed without a rework of the hardware in the station itself. I purchased 3 of these stations at Costco and am happy with the price but, this almost defeats the benefit and need for having WiFi and an app. Maybe that’s why Costco is selling them 30% off. I’m leaning towards returning all three. I’ll wait a few weeks to see if La Crosse offers any assurance here of this being fixed in the future. La Crosse........CAN THIS BE FIXED THRU THE APP?
  • La Crosse Weather Station

    By eastmw
    I bought this unit a couple months ago. It was fairly easy to set up and connect to my WiFi. Everything works great on the base unit. However when I set up The La Crosse View app the outside temperature has never displayed. I’m getting the inside temp and the wind & rain readings on the app. The outside temperature has never displayed. I have tried removing and reinstalling the app several times but I still get the same results. I have deleted and reinstalled the outside temp sensor as well but it still does not display. Every time I send La Crosse a note describing this problem I get the same response telling me how to load devices. I can get the temp sensor loaded on the app. The temperature just doesn’t display on the app. Other than the issue with the outside temp and the app.. I like the system.
  • Fantastic

    By BigMack59
    My LaCrosse weather station arrived today. When I opened the box I was amazed. The packaging was well designed and after discovering that I needed to snip the two tie wraps it all came out of the box easily. No assembly required!! (Except for installing 2 AA batteries in the temperature and humidity sensor and 3 AA batteries in the multifunction sensor). Included were the base station with ac adapter, the multifunction sensor, the temperature /humidity sensor, and a short mounting bracket and post. I downloaded the LaCrosse View software from the App Store, installed it on my iPhone. The ONLY issue I had was with my home wireless network. I have a two band wireless router and I was using the faster 5 GHz wireless for my iPhone. So I did a bit of research and changed my iPhone back to 2.4 GHz and the V40 found my network and the rest is history as they say. The only things left to do are purchase a 1” diameter pole to mount the multifunction sensor, and find a suitable location for the temp/ humidity sensor. Overall I am extremely happy with my LaCrosse V40 Weather Station and have already recommended it to a friend.
