Been using Ambient Weather WS-10 Wireless Indoor/Outdoor 8 channel Thermo-Hygrometer for a couple of years. We have one sensor in freezer, refrig, under one slide in the shade, one in storage compartment and one in container with water filter. I use Lithium batteries in all units and they have excellent life span. System comes with three sensors and display console. Worth looking at.

I use the accurate and recently upgraded to SensorPush for logging purposes. I made a thread about a few months back.

I just grab the one from the stick home to take camping with me. Has been checked against a mercury one and it works fine.

Ok how to calibrate

You need some ice (make with DISTILLED water please) About 2 cups worth
A styrafoam cooler
A container of water
A zip lock bag
The remote sensor

Put ice in bottom of cooler add water to cover the ice (also distilled by the way) place sensor in zip lock bag and seal. pace it on top of the ice/water and close the lid. come back in about an hour or 3 and read the meter. if it's 32 you are golden 31 or 33 may also be accurate depending on altitude.


Home is where I park it.

I had an Accurite and it was not at all accurate (in spite of the name) just more junk in my junk bucket...

I have both Accurite and Lacross. Agreement does not often happen but 1-2 Degrees off is normal.. of course the senders are in different places and that can affect things too. The one in the fridge is a Lacross.. I tried it in the freezer but it ceased transmitting due to cold. I'd use a calibrated dial or liquid type in the freezer Calibration explained above.
