Very useful – USB Digital Thermometer Dongle (Software Displays Temperature) Reviews

posted by mikeham on 04/15/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
* worked first time under Windows * USB extension cable included * Fahrenheit or Celsius * small * open source code available (C# language) * can drive a web page - check your house temperature over the net * inexpensive
Cons:
* this model has no humidity sensor * supplied software is poor (but you don't need it)
Other:
* don't bother with the supplied software. Google "Temperature Monitoring via USB Thermometer" (it's at "Albert's Greenhouse") for an excellent, free program * excellent to monitor a greenhouse, home brewing setup, etc
Bottomline:
* the free software is what really makes this shine * one of the most useful items I've bought from DX
