Suggested Uses

Spot Check Temperature & Humidity SensorModel 06012RM
  • Monitor indoor and outdoor conditions 
  • Evaluate heating and cooling coverage in your home; check for drafts 
  • Track conditions in hard to reach places (attic, basement, crawl space, etc.)

Placement Options

Monitor Indoor and Outdoor ConditionsTrack both indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity levels.

Suggested Placement

Mount the Monitor indoors to track indoor conditions. To track outdoor conditions, position the Wired Sensor outside of a window or door, choosing the mounting method (screws/anchors, zip ties or suction cups) that best suits the available mounting location. See Figure (A).

Measure Household Heating and Cooling Coverage

Fine tune your heating and cooling systems to ensure efficient distribution of hot or cool B air around the home by placing multiple Monitors and Wired Sensors strategically throughout your house.

Suggested Placement

Place the Wired Sensors in a way to achieve maximum coverage; on different floors, at opposite ends of the house, etc. (This will require the use of multiple Room Monitors and Wired Sensors.) See Figure (B).

Monitor Conditions in Hard-to-Reach Places

Identifying abnormal temperatures or humidity levels can help prevent property damage. For C example, high temperatures and humidity can facilitate the growth of mold or corrosion of metals. Low humidity levels and rapid changes in temperature can damage expensive investments.

Suggested Placement

Mount the Wired Sensor using the included mounting bracket and hardware, choosing the mounting method (screws/anchors, zip ties or suction cups) that best suits the available mounting point. The sensor can also fit in a 1/2 inch diameter hole to monitor any space. See Figure (C).

Monitor Pet Tanks

Reptiles and other exotic pets are sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity conditions. Easily monitor tanks and cages to ensure the D proper conditions are maintained.

Suggested Placement

Mount the Wired Sensor to a tank using the included mounting bracket. Suction cups easily affix to glass tanks. See Figure (D).

Using the Sensor

The Wired Sensor requires either the Room Monitor or the Outdoor Temperature and Humidity Monitor to be operational. Compatible digitaldisplays are available for both Monitors.The Outdoor Monitor requires a companion unit (ex. digital display).The Room Monitor features a built-in digital display.When using a Wired Sensor with the Room Monitor, the Monitor’s temperature and humidity readings move to the top of the display. The display automatically toggles between the Monitor’s temperature and humidity data, and the Wired Sensor’s readings appear in the middle of the display (pictured below).
