Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by handyhack Bought 2, neither worked as advertised.
Now that it's getting cold here in Chicago, we decided to buy two for the garage. We've got a couple of pipe heaters that we'd like to turn on when the temp gets cold.
I tried both of them out as soon as I got home, the temperature of the garage is over 50 degrees, and both units were already on. I left them alone for a good 20 to 30 minutes to acclimate but that did not do anything. I tested the thermometer we have in the garage to make sure it's accurate and it was working just fine.
These are going right back to HD asap.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ripper only lasts one season
Mine only lasts one winter season. So every year if I want to keep the bird bath open, I have to buy new. CANT ANYONE MAKE SOMETHING TO LAST FOR AWHILE?
Sorry Thermocube, Going somewhere else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garcol Automatic Freeze protection!!
I have used two of these for several years to turn on drop lights used for freeze protection. They work great! I broke one last year trying to plug it into an adapter, my bad. I will be buying more for use as well as back up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ConnieF Good freeze protection but not completelt accurate
I bought this to turn on my heat lights in my greenhouse to protect from freezing. I does do that however the Thermocube turns on and off at slightly higher temps. Seems to turn on around 39 and off at 53. That works for me to protect my plants but is costing me some extra electricity which is a small inconvenience. Other than that I would have said it was a 5. (Placed my outlet in a plastic bag to protect from the high humidity in the greenhouse).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SKYPILOT Great energy saver
Works great though will not come on until the cube itself gets to 35 degrees or go off until the cube itself gets to 45 degrees. So if the cube is sitting on a cold can of peaches in the pantry, the cube may not shut off until the air temperature is 50-60 degrees. A Winter Minder - also sold by HD - gives you most flexibility but costs more and has only one outlet on it (though you can plug an outlet extension into it giving you several outlets. Don't exceed its load, however. "12-volt" in the description on March 13, 2014 is probably a typo for 120 volts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beerad ThermoCube freeze switched outlet
ThermoCube arrived quickly and I put it to use right away. Mine is accurate to about +/- 2-3 degrees (turn on at 35 degrees) and turns off at about 45 degrees.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrostFreePlumbing Cheap solution - not very accurate but serves purpose
Needed something to keep my well from freezing - this little gem turns the heater on and shuts it off when back to temp. It seems to go up to 55 degrees instead of 45 but turns on reliably before freezing so acceptable for my purpose.
