Gave to my husband for Christmas - he is a gadget guy. Set up was easy - item performed as described EXCEPT the outdoor temperature sensor never worked. We called WeatherDirect about the problem and got a message saying that due to extremely high call volume it would take a couple weeks for them to get back to us. Long story short, after 3+ weeks and assorted e-mails back and forth a new sensor arrived in the mail today. We put batteries in it and it worked great.
