Question about La Crosse Projection Alarm Clock with Temperature and Humidity Display
My husband bought the Shift 3 projection alarm clock/radio, but we cannot find out how to open the remote that is supposed to go outside for the weather. The instruction manual for the clock is totally useless. All it says is to take the battery cover off the remote to put in the batteries. I would do that if I could find out how to take the cover off. HELP!!! The info on the back says that it comes from MerchSource, llc in Foothill Ranch, CA
Once the batteries are installed in the remote the temp will appear in the LED screen. Now you are ready to link signals between the main unit and the remote. Simply remove one of the two triple A batteries from the main unit and then replace. You should then see what appears to be a flashing object shaped like a kite with a tail while the two units link up. Then you should see the temp reading at the remote appear in the LED readout at the main unit. By the way there is also a very small reset at the top of the switches on the back of the main unit that can be depressed with a SMALL pointed object like a scissor point or safety pin point.

Overall it's pretty good product if you know how to use it, considering the price. The manual sucks! There are two little buttons inside the remote, one is for testing the link. Also you need to reset the main clock for remote radio signal.

Yeah, the manual sucks. You have to actually take out the four tiny screws that are set really deep into the remote's housing. I haven't gotten any farther than that yet myself. I was looking online for a better alternative to this recent purchase because I foresee it being a dud.

I found that if you thump the remote sensor pretty hard with your index finger the real temperature displays...but soon it defaults back to its original reading of 74.3 degrees no matter if you're at the North Pole or the equator. Ditto to everything that has been said so far about this product, cheap, the manual is a joke, can't find a web address for troubleshooting, screws too far in and too tight, etc. Batteries have to be inserted in the remote sensor before they're inserted in the base station in order for the base station to read the remote sensor. I say, take it back and get a good quality weather station...its worth the money.

The screws on the one I bought were apparently installed by an overzealous worker with a power screwdriver. They're driven in too tight - the screws are of such poor quality that the heads strip out when you try to back out the screws. Junk.

No, only the outside is displayed.

I am so sorry to read all of you who are having a problem with setting up your shift3 clock. I just followed the simple steps in the manual and it is working fine. I do have to admit the 4 screws from the remote were a little tough to remove but a little patience and you will be successfull. Good luck! Too bad the clock is not radio contolled.

Received this clock as a Christmas present; installed the 3 AAA battieries in the outside sensor & the back of the clock & low & behold; it worked for both temps inside & out all thru the cold months after December until the summer heat arrived! You can adjust the projection light to the ceiling with the vertical roller wheel on the upper back of the clock. To open the outside temp sensor; if the tiny screws are a problem just place the end of a small flat end screw driver & twist it along the edges of the plastic case until it pops off as the screws are simple self tapping but very tedious to get out, I can open it with my finger nails now & it pops back on as tight as with the screws! Now, for some reason, I only get the inside temp & nothing outside at all..am stumped!! Maybe it only works better in the cold weather months for outside but unhappy with it now?!?! Had it located inside my gas grill on the back porch. Simply laid it on the grill spines & closed the top all winter so the rain, snow, etc. wouldn't get it wet & as cheap as the plastic case is without a rubber seal; & eventually it will happen in the open.
