Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SCPOSUBS Not using this for the weather but met my needs perfectly!
This was purchased to know what the temperature is inside of a refrigerator,specifically a Kegerator. One of the most important things for draft beer is keeping the keg at the proper temperature. This thermometer allows me to know what the temperature inside the fridge is without having to open the door to read a standard thermometer and the sensor is small enough to not interfere with the hoses, lines or coupler.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BlairJ works great
Our model #00822HDMA1 works great. It has the same wireless sensor as model #00822HDSBA3, but the main unit has a silver case and the readout is in an oval window. The size and all the functions are the same. Both the main and the sensor agreed with each other indoors. Then the wireless sensor was hung outside where the sun cannot reach it. For several days now the range of its readings have agreed exactly with those of a nearby school weather station on the internet. I reset it before going to bed and after getting up to check the high and low overnight and during the day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John Accurate, good range, but choose battery carefully for cold.
Display unit is great and accurate and the wireless sensor reads within the advertised range. One issue I had was that the outdoor sensor only lasted 1 day before the battery read "low". This was in single digit temps which makes sense. Batteries typically don't work well in cold weather but I though it would last longer than 1 day. Batteries were name-brand and new and wireless sensor was placed on opposite side of the wall outside (~3 feet away). I'll have to do some research to find out if there is a better type of better battery chemistry for cold-weather applications, I was using Duracell Quantum AA.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dick Works as advertised and seems accurate
The displayed temperatures agree closely with other devices, both inside and out, and the numbers are large and clearly readable without a lot of distracting extra information. Tenths of degrees are not displayed, which I consider a plus because these consumer devices are probably not that accurate, and I don't really need precision temperatures. The hi/lo outside temp memories are automatically reset each day. You can control the time of day when that is done either by removing and then replacing the batteries at the time you choose, or by holding the ºC/ºF button (in the battery compartment) for several seconds at whatever time you want to begin a new hi/lo tracking cycle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gordo The only way to know the temperature
This is the only way to go. The only or best way to know the temperature of a remote location. Dad's house has a crawl space under it. We were always worried about pipes freezing, especially this past winter. Solution....place remote sensor in crawl space and without getting out of your chair you can see the temperature under the house and make appropriate preparations if it drops too low. It worked great. The accuracy was spot on when I compared to a standard bulb thermometer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Billy92064 High temperature doesn't remain constant
I installed batteries and placed outdoor unit. It seemed to work fine. But the high and low temperature doesn't work correctly.
First, I was disappointed that I had to remove the back cover to reset the high and low. I want to know the high and low for each day not the all time high and low.
Then I found that the high temperature drifts lower as the day gets cooler. One day it registered the high correctly as 71 and this agreed with other thermometers I have. But then as the day went on and it got cooler the "high" dropped to 70 then 69 then 68. That's not what I want.
This is a poorly designed product. Don't buy it.

This is the third AcuRite wireless thermometer I've owned. It lasted 4 weeks before it stopped syncing with the outdoor sensor which is only about 15 feet away directly outside a large window. I've had the same issue with the previous AcuRite devices. None of those lasted more than a year. They are nice when they work, but they're not built to last. Thankfully Home Depot has a good return policy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldie Good Way to Get Outdoor Temps
I bought 3 of these so that I could see the outdoor temperature in different rooms of my house. I had had something like this before and it was nice not having to go to a specific spot to check the temperature. Only one outdoor sensor is needed to communicate to the 3 indoor receivers. So far it seems to be working well.
