Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Den317 Does the job...
Used to turn on the 6" inline duct fan as part of my custom-designed ventilation system to cool my two-car garage this summer...it does exactly what it is supposed to....turns the fan on when the temperature reaches a certain point, and turns it off when it's cooled down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fatfenders works great!
I wanted a cheap and easy way to cool the components in my entertainment center. Stumbles across this box. Picked it up, installed a small lamp on one end, painted it black, connected it to a fan and placed it on my receiver. Now, after a few minutes, the light comes on (for easy verification, monitoring). Fan switches off after about 45 minutes, after the heat dissipates. Just what I wanted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillTheWeekendWarrior Using to control a thru-wall fan
I installed a Suncourt thru-wall fan to exhaust a utility room and used this temperature switch to automatically turn it on and off when the temperature inside exceeds 70 degrees. The controls are manually set and work very well once it's dialed in. I'm going to buy another unit in the summer to control a desk fan so that it turns off when the temperature drops to a certain level and turns back on when it's get hot. This is a very versatile switch with many uses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by enslowbulldog Easy to install
This was a fine purchase. I needed to control my duct fan that I had installed for a long run of duct to the far end of the house.This was an excellent solution.The Duct Stat was so easy to install and came with the screws needed. The instructions for the adjustments made the job very simple. The fan now turns on and off just the way that I like it. Clever and easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by llamaguy Ductstat a great temperature-based controller
I bought two Ductstat controllers for a small greenhouse, This is NOT the Ductstats' normal application. One controls an electric heater and the other an exhaust vent fan. However the Ductstat is just an inline 110V temperature sensitive electric switch that can control anything that plugs into it -- fan, heater, lighting, alarm light or horn etc. It can be used to turn ON a device in either of two different modes. One mode is to turn ON a device when air drops to a certain temp and then OFF when the temp goes back up (like my portable electric heater.) The other is to turn ON when temp gets up to a certain temp and then OFF when the temp cools back down (like my greenhouse's exhaust fan in warm weather.) The "delta" between ON and OFF can be set for either a 3 degree change or a 7 degree change. The unit is originally designed to run supplemental duct fans to assist in moving air in long runs from furnace or air conditioner. Because of my greenhouse adaptation, I had called the manufacturer before purchasing about that application and they were very helpful to explain how it could be used in that way and that many of their units are used for that. I also had a question after I received the unit during install about how to set the temp range and they talked me through that. They are obviously proud of their product (made in USA) and very helpful. The Ductstats have worked perfectly for several months, controlling fan and heater in my greenhouse to keep inside temps between 45 degrees and 90 degrees, while the outside temps in Denver varied from a -15 degrees (yes minus) to 85 degrees. I think this is a great product, a real value, and I highly recommend it.

Arrived super fast , had a battery ready and tried it out , worked ok but a little underpowered no fall leaves yet but skeptical that this unit will be up to the task.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Markthecomputerjock Non Standard use it works great at.
I am using this product to control fans in a computer rack. When the temp gets too high the controller turns on the 4 fans, increases air flow through the rack and cools down the computers and the controller and shuts off when the temperature is back in the desired range.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Archaeopteryx Appears to work as specified -- what more could I ask?
I got this device to turn on a small air conditioner during hot weather when I am not around to do it; I have a number of animals here who need to be protected from really hot weather. At about 5 amps it is not up for heavier work, but is big enough to operate fans, which I think is the company's usual business. The device compares favorably to my previous thermostat, made by Lux, which stopped working after a year or so.
The device was not available at the store, but I was able to order it on the HD web site and pick it up a few days later, which turned out to be reasonably efficient.
