What I did have difficult with is setting the date and clock. I followed the direction over and over but each time I clicked the bottom on top of the thermometer I could not change settings because the thermometer would turn off. So unfortunately I could not set an alarm nor did I hear any beeps to let me know if I had reached a higher or lower reading than was normal based on the instructions in the guide. Still my readings were accurate and helpful. By using the thermometer daily I used my readings to assess with other criteria we are analyzing. I would recommend this product the difficulties I had seemed to be user driven and I will be contacting the manufacturer for assistance. We plan to continue to use.
I have to disclaim that I was given a discount in return for my unbiased View and opinion of this product this in no way changes my opinion
