This sensor is perfect for the need! Review by Dennis
I wanted to add a sensor to my online backyard system for the purpose of monitoring the temperature over winter in our root cellar. We like to keep it at about 40 degrees as we have a water pipe that runs through that room as well. Yes a heat tape is in place for freeze protection but, this is just one added piece of mind for me. It works great. Use your imagination when it comes to what you may want a sensor for. Inexpensive too, I should add. (Posted on 10/28/14)
Perfect replacement Review by matrixbud
I was nervous that more than just this sensor might be needed to restore our weather station, but this did the job. Weather station is working correctly again. (Posted on 10/9/14)
Replacement sensor Review by Darryl
My last sensor took a beating in our late summer storms here in SW Florida. Found it in a puddle on the ground....dead! New sensor was ordered and received within a week. Works great! Thanks for making such a reliable and accurate product. Bought one for my Dad and brother-in-law, they both said it works great. (Posted on 10/7/14)
Replacement works fine Review by Rabbit
Original unit that came with my unit would always transmit the same numbers rendering it useless. The replacement unit works just great. (Posted on 10/4/14)
Shipping Review by Larry
Great sensor but either a lower price or no cost shipping would be nice. (Posted on 10/3/14)
The right one Review by Rose
Just like the one we had that went out. Works great! (Posted on 10/1/14)
Just what I needed Review by Brucejean
I bought this item to record the temp in my home while on my many road trips. Great item, it will send the temp and humidity reading direct to my iphone or iPad via my bridge . Gotta make sure my pets are comfortable while I am away. (Posted on 8/29/14)
Works great! Review by Justin
I have an older model receiving unit, so I wasn't sure if a new sensor would work with it, but it works flawlessly! (Posted on 8/14/14)
Great Mobility Review by Snickles
Gives you the temperature in just about any area inside or out of the house. NO WIRES...!!!!! Love this little gadget. (Posted on 4/15/14)
replacing old wireless sensor Review by chet
My old wireless weather station (#75077) quit indicating outdoor temps after about 4 years of northeast Florida exposure, The main unit no longer showed outdoor temp reception. I removed the cover of the wireless sensor, removed the corrosion on the battery contacts and installed new batteries for the 5th time. Still no signal reception.
After contacting Chaney customer care and finding there is no repair depots, I ordered and replaced the wireless sensor with newer 592TXR sensor.

Problem solved!

Hope this new sensor holds up to the heat and corrosion in this part of Florida. (Posted on 4/10/14)
Temp & Humidity Tower Review by Dale
Needed something for my LakeHouse to monitor the inside temps when I'm not there. Have a Acurite 5 in 1 unit outside with The Internet Bridge where I monitor the outside weather condition. When I saw Acurite had the Temp & Humidity tower on sale that would be a good fix to monitor indoors.

Best $8.00 well spent put the two AA batteries in an open up Acurite's My Backyard web page configured it and reporting with no problem .

Now monitoring indoors and outdoor conditions wherever I'm at. (Posted on 3/15/14)
Great sensor Review by Miles
works great, setup was a dream. Was told it has a 300' range so will experiment more this summer with it. I wish they made a water temp model! (Posted on 3/9/14)
Replacement for my old sensor Review by Ron
I had to replace my old sensor and this new one is doing a great job. I received my new sensor in less then a week. Thanks Acu-Rite for providing such a great product replacement. (Posted on 2/28/14)
Useful addition Review by dblackinsk
I like this unit to monitor our indoor temperature while we are away. If I had not been ordering a bridge I would not have ordered this as the shipping would have likely tripled the price. It works great with the bridge and this way we can put it into an area of the house we want to monitor if we are away on vacation. If the temperature drops in the house in winter we can notify someone to check the furnace for us.

A great product at a great price Review by Carl the Weatherman
I bought 2 of these units. One to check the temperature in our chicken house and the other to keep an eye on the temp in the refrigerator. Have been very pleased with the quality and pricing on these products. (Posted on 2/8/14)
Mr Review by Frank
At first I thought that the sensor was bad because it didn't immediately register onto the main display unit. I checked the channel ("A") to be sure it was set on both sensor and display, removed the batteries and it still didn't send a signal. There was a button-looking indention on the front of the sensor but it didn't seem to depress, so I was a bit miffed.

Then I noticed the LED and wondered why it didn't light up. Although I thought I put in fresh batteries, I decided to change the batteries again and waa-laa! It blinked. Still not reading on the main display but at least there was progress.

There is a very small pin button called "sensitivity" on the main unit and I depressed it until the LED on the sensor blinked and this time the reading appeared!

Perhaps this was the problem with the older sensor, but I'm happy anyway. I'll give this replacement 5 stars even if the documentation may need to have a little more more direction. (Posted on 2/4/14)
great item Review by Terry
works great I only wish I could get a signal booster. I have this in a safe at the other end of the house and some times I loss the signal (Posted on 1/31/14)

sensor replaced Review by Jeepdude2004
I have had this weather unit for many years and it worked flawlessly then about two years ago it stopped sending the signal. I looked and looked for a new unit but the prices are sky high and it was bothering me that I still have the display unit All II need is the sensor. Well I checked out the Accu Rite site and found for a mere $8 I could have the unit I really like back working. I now have the new sensor and it works great. Much different design than the original one. But works fine.. Thank you for supplying the replacement sensor and for such a reasonable price. Much better than the $60 to buy a new unit..

Reasonable accuracy for the price Review by Rick_in_NWOH
The low cost of this sensor has to be considered when evaluating the performance.
I originally acquired the 2007 model weather forecaster, which uses this 592TXR sensor. I liked the unit in general, but I wanted to add wind and rainfall measurements, so I got a bridge/5in1 sensor package. At the same time I ordered another 592TXR to use in the basement, but initially I set it up right next to the 592TXR that came with the 2007 model display.
To evaluate the tower sensor performance compared to the 5in1, I used the bridge and the Aculink website to track the three sensors. I found that the first 592TXR and the 5in1 sensor readings for temp and humidity closely matched several weather stations that are within 1 or 2 miles. One of those stations is at a local airport, so I know that those readings are closely monitored because of the commercial aircraft. The second 592TXR tower sensor (placed right next to the first 592TXR for test purposes), read on average within 0.3 degrees F of the first 592TXR and the 5in1 (excellent temp repeatability). Understand that I am able to get 0.1 degree resolution using the Aculink website, not from the display consoles. However, the second 592TXR was consistently 6% lower on the humidity reading than the first 592TXR and the 5in1 sensor.
After I called Acurite and explained my measurements, they quickly agreed to send a replacement 592TXR sensor.
To summarize, I think the 592TXR can be very accurate, especially for the temp data. The price is amazingly low too. One thing I noticed during these tests was that the 5in1 sensor humidity reading response time was much faster than the 592TXR (5in1 = 15 minutes; 592TXR = 1 hour). I think this is due to the internal fan in the 5in1 because I only noticed the faster response time when the sun was shining (which is when the fan runs).
The bottom line here is that the Acurite devices are a very good value and the company does stand behind their warranty. I don't know what the long term durability will be yet, but anything electronic that you put outside in the fairly humid and hostile environment where I live is going to face quite a challenge, considering that our temps range from -20F to 105. At the price point of these products, I can afford to replace them when the weather beats them up. (Posted on 1/14/14)
Hope it lasts longer than the original sensor Review by Galdor41
Original sensor lasted less than a year. It was installed beneath the eave of my garage so could not have had weather damage. This replacement linked up fine (after I remembered to check that the receiver and sensor were both set on the same A or B or C setting!). Sensor accurate according to a good mercury thermometer placed beside it for a while. Acurite DID send me a free replacement since it had been less than a year old. Thanks Acurite.

Does the job very well Review by JP
Great little sensor. Works every time. I have several in two separate residences to monitor temp. and humidity. (Posted on 12/14/13)
Great product,price and service Review by Doc
I dropped my sensor from a ladder and had to get a new one. It was only $5.00 and I received it in a week. It is a can do type of business. (Posted on 10/10/13)
Just what I needed to get my 1099RX running again Review by GaryB
The remote sensor on my 1099RX weather station stopped working. I ordered this replacement sensor and received it in a week. I took it out of the package, put in the batteries and it linked right up. Much better than having to buy a new weather station. (Posted on 10/6/13)
Working again! Review by DavidnWaxhaw
I have a five year old Acu-Rite weather station inside my house. The outdoor unit/sensor was 'somehow damaged' so I needed a replacement. Ordering and installing the new sensor (which by the way is a much better design than the old one) was simple and painless! The units paired without problem and I am now 'back in business'.

Great Product Review by Norman
I unwrapped the sensor, installed the batteries, and linked it to the display and it works fine. I have no issues or problems. I would buy again. I am very satisfied with the product! (Posted on 6/10/13)
Excellent Product Review by Mike
I unwrapped the sensor, installed the batteries, and linked it to the display unit in literally 60 seconds. I am very satisfied with the product! (Posted on 2/28/13)
It would be great if... Review by Ernie
It would be great if they advertised this as a Temp/Humidity Sensor instead of a Tower Sensor. They might sell more. I've been looking all over for a temp sensor that would be compatible with my acu-link with no luck until I read the above reviews. I'm ordering 2 to add to my 1055 for the refrigerator and crawlspace. (Posted on 2/1/13)
Has worked flawlessly Review by MM
It has been in use for about 1 year on same batteries (Posted on 1/29/13)

Great addition to my 01050C Review by CraigW
The bridge that came with my 01050C can read from this sensor. It gives me a great way to add a humidity and temperature alarm and chart to my refrigerator or anywhere else around my house. (Posted on 9/29/11)
