Wireless Transmitting

How It Works
La Crosse Technology wireless sensors transmit their data approximately every 4 to 60 seconds. Receivers (Displays) regularly "listen" for compatible sensors within range and display that data on the screen. Check your owner's manual for the specific update interval of your product.

Transmission Frequencies
La Crosse Technology sensors transmit data from 433 MHz to 915 MHz. In order to see which frequency your system utilizes, check the system's operating manual or specifications.

Distance, Resistance and Interference
When deciding on a location for your remote sensor there are a number of factors to keep in mind:

  • Do not mount on a metal fence. This significantly reduces the effective range.
  • Do not mount near electrical wires, transmitting antennas or other items that will interfere with the signal.
  • Any obstacles, such as walls, windows, stucco, concrete or large metal objects can reduce the range of the signal.
  • Position the display inside the house away from electrical devices such as computers, TVs or routers, as these can interfere with the signal.
  • Sensors should be mounted vertically to allow condensation to drain.
  • For best transmission, sensors should be mounted at least 6 feet above the surface.
