With an AcuRite Liquid & Soil Temperature Sensor, you can accurately measure temperature in a wide range of environments, providing many practical applications and giving you the information you need to take action.
Setup is simple, the Wired Sensor plugs into either a a Room Monitor or an Outdoor Temperature & Humidity Monitor (required; sold separately). Then, position the temperature probe in the location where you want to measure temperature.
Its versatile design allows it to be inserted into potting soil, slipped through small openings (like ducts and vents), partially submerged in water, or affixed lengthwise to a pipe or hose.

As another reviewer said, the temperature reported in my iPhone app are always an integer plus 0.9. It would be nice if it read to a tenth of a degree like all my other sensors. In a spa a fraction of a degree makes a big difference.
The probe seems to work OK, but I wish it were longer than 5 feet, 8 would be nice. Either that or offer a cable extension. This is a replacement for my original probe which only worked for about a week. I use mine for my pool and I have enclosed my outside monitor in a small bird house since rainwater kept getting inside and causing it to malfunction.
I put this in my laundry room, and found it very easy to setup and it was discovered immediately on MyAcuRite webpage. Very accurate and tested fine with water. I would recommend this product
This works as advertised--EXCEPT, unlike every other Acurite temperature sensor, it only reports full degrees Fahrenheit, not tenths of a degree (in My Acurite via smartHUB). Strangely, the user manual doesn't mention this, and Acurite tech support was unaware of it.
Even stranger, it doesn't simply report 52, 53, 54, 55 degrees, etc. It reports 51.9, 52.8, 53.9, 54.8, etc. See attached screenshot. I have three of them (attached to room monitors), and they all do the same thing.
It is disappointing not to have the precision of tenths of a degree.
