Default New Show Idea - Access Westclox data

I have a "Westclox" digital clock that shows time, day, month, temperature etc,. That I got from Walmart. It also has a temp sensor for outside that feeds back to the clock using RF 433.Mhz with 3 selectable channels.

I was wondering how I could tap into that data to have it display on my PC so I could automatically monitor it and have the PC call my cell or something if the temp got too high or too low. The model Westclox clock is 70034. It runs off of 3 AA batteries while the temp sendor runs off off 2 AA batteries.

I imagine I would need some sort of USB RF receiver and software but don't know much more than that. Can you do a project like this? I use it to monitor the temperature in my Dad's apartment that is attached to the main house but has it's own mini-split heating cooling system.

Love your show and keep up the good work.
