How far can it read? Will it work for cathedral ceiling temperatures?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Tim
We have vaulted ceilings and we have used it on them. Ceiling height is about 12'. The manual states that the closer you are the more accurate it will be but it should give you a good idea of the temperature.

Infrared Thermometer is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ryobi IR002 Great for playing with cats not accurate enough as a tool. Measures 69 degrees as 60-64 depending on how it feels. Varies by 20 degrees in the freezer?? It may be within spec but still not usfull as a real tool. I had and lost the blue riobi version it was accurate enough to make true evaluations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Entertainment Purposes Only I needed a IR thermometer so I grabbed this at the local HD and later bought a Kline IR1000. I was dong some AC work and measuring the basic temp split between return and supply so I took the opportunity to compare the Ryobi to the Kline. The Ryobi measures consistently 5-10 degrees higher than the Kline which I guess is within the specs for this unit. When I need accurate measurements I use a thermocouple and meter but when I'm taking a snapshot using an IR I would at least like to be somewhere close. The Kline is more expensive but it also has an accuracy of 1.5% so measuring 75 degrees it would be within a 1.125 degree swing not 5-10 degrees. I would say pass and get a more accurate unit unless you just want to play around. Picture 1 - Fieldpiece ST4 Thermocouple Picture 2 - Kline , Ryobi comparison

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It can't make up it's mind I bought this because my home A/C unit was acting up, & I needed to measure the temp at the vents. It worked fine, except for 1 problem. It can display the temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. There is a switch inside the battery cover for this purpose. BUT, the 1 I got would change to Celsius all by itself every 25 to 30 readings or so. Then, I would have to open the battery compartment, switch it from Fahrenheit to Celsius and back. Then, it was good to go for another 25-30 readings before it switched again. I took it back and exchanged it for another one. This one would switch to Celsius every 4 or 5 readings. I took this one back and got a refund. It would be a good tool for anyone who is fluent in both Fahrenheit AND Celsius.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I want Fahrenheit Loaded the battery and used once to measure where air was coming in solid brick home built in 1860. Worked for a day and then kept reverting to Celsius. Had to keep taking the battery cover off and pushing it hard to get it to Fahrenheit. Avoid the desire for this cheap product. Spend a few more dollars on one that will keep working.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's the battery I'm a roofer, water proofer by trade. I bought one of the Ryobi IR002 to measure surface temperatures before we do coating. And it was off by about 8 degrees per others with more expensive IR thermos. Switched the battery and it was spot on compared to theirs. Maybe Ryobi should switch to The pink bunny battery guys.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Shooting this 3 times in a row at the exact same point on a wall I get 3 completely different readings that spread 14 degrees. I also have the Milwaukee version that cost $55 more, but it is spot on. Ryobi tools seem to be hit and miss. Some are awesome, some are horrible and this is one of them.

I use it for my snake and the IR gun is within a degree of the digital thermostat probe that is in the cage. It's also a fun toy for the kids to play with and see different cold spots in the house. Just point and squeeze the trigger.
