Log into the Access and see if the 5 in 1 shows AND what signal level You will need to log into your router anr locate the MAC (the ID on the bottom of the Access), then type the IP  (EG 192.168.0.31) INTO THE ADDRESS BAR ON YOUR BROWSER

I logged in the the access.  I see this on the sensor list:

Sensor List:

PRESSURE: 29.14 Inch

SIGNAL:433MHZ

#   Type               Id                   Last Time (UTC)                        Signal                   Battery

It apparently is seeing nothing.
I had a 5 in 1, and another device from my neighbor that were reporting.  Now blank.
So I deleted everything, and thought I would recreate it. 
That apparently was a bad idea because now I can not re-register access.

The message states
  • Device must be connected and reporting data to claim it. Please make sure the device is connected to your router and the status lights are blinking.
I have a solid blue light on the front.
solid amber on the back where the cat 5 connect.
occasional green blinking light.

Nothing on the List has noting to do with being registered.   You have nothing to send until you have some devices on that list.  
Remove batteries, Power and network cable from Access.  WAIT 5-10 Minutes,Connect the network, apply power and reinsert batteries (pay attention to the MARKS on the battery cover as those do NOT match the instructions that were enclosed with my Access)
Check the list, again (may take 6 minutes to appear).  Move a sensor within  5 feet if needed to sync up.

Steve, thank you.  I went outside and took my 5 in 1 down and brought it inside the house.  I replaced the batteries with some new ones just in case. 

I did what you said and the 5 in 1 sensor did show up so I am back in business.

I live in Texas, and this week  it is blistering hot.  I am wondering if excess heat put a drain on the batteries and it just could not send the signal to my access.  I was getting a signal to my display so I know some parts were working, and how I know it was so hot....

Thank you again.
