You are correct - forget the tv channel issue.
Yes, the bridge manual for installation is "out there"' just a quick start type manual. We actually have a sharing setup built into the web portal that will allow ussrs to follow other peoples bridges by inputting the mac address of the bridge you wish to "follow"' on the flip side- we give the option to each user if they wish to share their sensor data in the first place. Gives both sharing and privacy concerns the proper attention and options.
We have looked at alternate frequencies and have done lots of testing, our specific 433 protocol is really very good- I definately challenge you to give our 433 a try. I currently have a competitor model 915 sensor and our 433 sensor placed in my deep freezer in my garage, about 75 feet from my bridge-and through 5 walls! The 915 is not connecting to it's display, and our 433 is connected fine, low signal strength, but connected with no interuption- real world tests pan out well for our 433. I stand behind it- wspecially on our 5-in-1 sensors and our other newer sensors, much improved protocol.

I saw that one. I was looking for a more detailed version. Maybe photos of the web portal display (browser and iphone versions). More detailed info on setup - especially now that you mention sharing and privacy settings. If one doesn't "share" can they still get the data on their iphone?
Yes, you can still get your info on smartphone- sharing is a separate option altogether-
An example, I gave my MAC address to one of my neighbors so he can look at the same info. He just has to create an account, go to "follow my friend's bridge" and input my mac address.
The Acurite.com website will have allot of information about the system when it all goes live this month, and the packaged system will be available at some online retailers next week. I do not have authorization to share the images yet, as we still have agreements in the works with some folks.
I can share the app store link with you, has some preview images of the app and some more consolidated info about the smartphone app features:
Check it out, and let me know if you have any questions, I will do my best to answer them without getting into trouble here ;)
A question for Rhino:
I just received the 1050C from Costco, and the bridge appears to be ethernet only. I did not get any software with the unit. Is there any way to connect to this unit locally (inside my local network), because I will be in an area that I may not have internet access???
If local PC software is available, where is it available?
