I had purchased two of these at the same time and apparently you only get a 50/50 chance of  them working.  One still works the other doesn't -no matter how I tried to fix it is just will not pick up the outside temperature consistently.  I could never get it to show the correct time either. It is a frustrating product. 

Today it won't pick up anything,  And yes, I have tried installing  new batteries  and I have put  outdoor sensor in different places.

Another thing to note is that even the one that does work cannot be put anywhere in my house that doesn't share the wall that the outdoor sensor is on.  This makes it awkward to say the least.

I wanted something simple, something like the older model that this company used to produce that I bought years ago that still work perfectly.  This is the closest I could get to that simple product and it does not hold up to the quality of the older, simpler model.
