The La Crosse View app from La Crosse Technology, provides a world class, weather app experience. The app works by connecting to one of our new La Crosse View Ready Personal Weather Stations, connecting you to your home anytime, anywhere.

The La Crosse View opens your station to a whole new set of features that is displayed on your station using our innovative data stream technology. You’ll now enjoy weather data from the National Weather Service, time and date information from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, customizable display options, and the option of displaying sensor data from additional sensors. The innovative and easy-to-navigate design, ensures a user friendly experience for all ages. Download now to start enjoying the View!
Ratings and Reviews
Unexpected and Exceptional
Got this as a unexpected gift and had no idea the amount of detail it actually offers. The set up was good with one issue: No Wireless MAC Address label to be found. So I disabled my MAC filtering on the WiFi router, connected it, went into my router’s settings on the internet and saw the address that way, added it to my address list and re-enabled the filter. The app works seamlessly on an iPhone 7 Plus. I have experienced zero issues. You can also add other sensors that you buy for a cottage, barn, or dog house etc and use your personal pictures as a background for each location of the sensor you wish to see readings on. This set up with the app and device is working so far. I’ll update my review in 2 months but as of now it works perfectly.
4 months later and everything is going good sensor wise but display wise there’s issues. I just managed my data stream, deleted cloud cover which only reads a percentage and says auto/auto next to it in the ticker, deleted snow accumulation which read normal, added wind speed, and possibility of damaging thunderstorms, and for some reason it won’t update correctly and I get an error in the app.
I took two stars away
Lacrosse weather station doesn’t work
I had the device for about three months. Almost every single time I opened my phone app, it displayed only dashes as it did not show any of the information? Several days would go by and none of the digits displayed on the device would change? Clearly as cold as it has been, The temperature would go way down at night and back up again later in the day but the device did not display this? I contacted the company a few times and one of the times they replied back saying that the device will only update once every six hours. So basically four times within a 24 hour. The device changes which means at that exact moment it is displaying possibly the correct digits, but for the next six hours it’s only displaying what it was six hours ago?? In our case the numbers were not even changing and on the phone app it almost always displayed nothing at all. The company never contacted us back the other times and the information they gave us initially did not help so we finally returned the weather station. We purchased one for a Christmas gift for somebody and they are having the same problem. The information displayed even if correct is on our phone app on a regular basis so it’s kind of useless because we were to the understanding it would show the information from right outside of our home. Walmart sells a device for under $10 that shows your inside and outside temperature on real time not only once every six hours.
Alarm/weather station with no program??
I really wanted to like the projector alarm clock weather station that I got at Costco, but am so disappointed by the app, that I might return it. I was excited by the prospect of allowing my kids to see the forecast as they woke up, to help them prepare for the day ahead, but the utter lack of design in the alarm’s program features render it almost useless. There needs to be a better way to program the alarm in the app, for which days it should be on and off. Seems like it would be really easy to add this feature, so that you can program a M-F alarm and not worry about turning it off every weekend and back on again for weekdays. Can this be incorporated into an update?? I hope so or I’ll be returning them soon.
The app also doesn’t allow you to delete any erroneous stations that are inadvertently created. Which would be another easy fix.
I like the display, and the projection features, but wish there was a radio option built in for the alarm.
And even though you can turn on and off the alarm with the app, the change is not initiated right away, and so it’s hard to tell if the alarm is actually being set or not. And when I get frustrated and turn it on annually, if I forget to change the app’s “on” setting, the alarm will turn itself back off through the app.
This could be a really great product if they make a few small changes, but as it is, I’m more frustrated than happy with it.
