Programmable Alerts

Dual alarms can be customized to notify you when temperatures exceed your presets. An alert is triggered when a temperature is out of range for longer than 15 minutes. This prevents false alarms due to the fridge or freezer door being held open during normal use.

High & Low Records

The thermometer tracks the high and low temperatures recorded for the fridge and the freezer. These readings reflect the all-time highest and lowest temperatures recorded - manually reset as needed.

Easy Setup

The thermometer's digital display is magnet-mountable on a fridge, or use the integrated keyhole for wall mounting. The wireless thermometer sensors are equipped with a spring-loaded clips with a rubber grip to securely attached to the edge of a shelf. Each sensor also includes a detachable suction cup that can be used to attach the sensor to the interior surface of the refrigerator.

Customer Reviews

I definitely will not buy any product from this company which such a bad customer service.
Ruben Guzman
Your choice of °F or °C, and if you want, you can set "alarm" temperatures which will sound if the temperature goes outside the range you specify.
Alan
I replaced the batteries in both sensors with the recommended lithium ones and still nothing.

I bought this for our RV refrigerator. We have a wired thermometer but I wanted a wireless type to get rid of the wire from the sensor to the display that runs under the door gasket. I was a little skeptical that a wireless thermometer would work but it worked so well I could bring the receiver in the house and watch the refrigerator cool down the night before we left for a trip. The display has magnets for mounting that don't stick to a our fridge (all plastic door), we just stick the display to our stove cover as its metal and right over the fridge. The remotes have two mounts; a suction cup and a spring clamp. The display has a min/max function, alarms and it's large enough to be seen easily. All-in-all its perfect for our needs.

I'll preface this by saying I bought this b/c my relatively new fridge seems to hold temperature poorly, so I've had a small mercury type fridge/freezer thermometer (hereafter referred to as "Mercury") since shortly after I bought it. The problem with these is that you have to open the door to read it, and I wanted something that I could have a Min/Max reading throughout the day to note down in case I need ammunition to use against the warranty company. Being able to monitor both fridge and freezer temps is a big plus!

BOTTOM LINE: for those not wanting to read my drivel below -- The AcuRite 00986, after a week of use, works great for me... note that I had no battery issues like some have had. See next part...

BATTERY TIPS: doing a Google search on battery characteristics, I found information [link removed by Amazon...] on Alkaline versus NiMH versus NiCd versus other battery chemistries. One of the very useful pieces of info was operating temperature range. Of note: Lithium operates down to -40C (-40F). Alkaline: 0C (32F). NiCd: -40C. NiMH: -20C (-4F). Well, I have a zillion NiMH rechargeable batteries for kids toys and since I really only care if the freezer goes above a few degrees F, then I figured I'd try NiMH for my sensors, before shelling out $$ on the Lithium AAs. Results: my freezer sensor has captured a temp as low as -13F, so I'd say the NiMH option was a smart move. Even if I have to change the batteries weekly, I swap them out with another set of NiMH and put them on the charger for a few hours. So, my advice to you is to get an inexpensive NiMH charger from somewhere ($10 maybe) and a package of at least 4 (~$7-10), but 8 would be nice, NiMH batteries. I'd recommend any low-discharge NiMH, such as Sanyo Enloops.

I've had this installed for about 1 month. Both transmitters and receiver are working well. The freezer chest transmitter is located on the basememt floor about 10' (below)from the receiver on the main floor and the 2nd transmitter is in my frige on the same floor (2nd) within 15'. All working OK. So far, I can recomend this product.

I found this to be an awesome product for the money and for even more money it would be worth it. I read terrible reviews about the Chaney thermometers but like the new LG Refrigerator I put this thermometer in they are both great. What customers have to realize however is that the temperature in either a freezer or refrigerator changes as the compressor cycles and as the defrost cycles. The walls where one might stick the suction cups are usually warmer than the interior. The wetted suction cups stuck hard and fast. Using a good calibrated other refrigerator thermometer and putting the Acu-Rite next to it on a shelf the readings were exactly equal. Then putting the Acu-Rite 14 inches away from that other thermometer and on the interior wall about 1/2 way toward the back the temps run from 36 to 43 depending. The main thermometer in the center ofr the refrigerator always maintains an even 34 as it is set for. Freezer set for zero runs from -1 to +6. Again normal operation. I have the readout module magnetically attached to the side of the refrigerator. It is not made to transmit through walls or into another room so if it works for you like that all the better. I like it on the side of the refrigerator.

May be I got lucky, but this wireless thermometer worked right away for me. Put the AAA alkaline batteries in the main, had the AA alkaline and lithium batteries ready and put them immediately in the fridge and freezer sensor respectively. Waited to see temperature shown in the main (80 and 80, from holding the things).
Placed the sensors in the fridge and freezer, temperature started to change gradually ( the sensors do not transmit the temperature continuously, I don't know what is the interval).
I am using this to monitor an old subzero that has alarming fluctuations in the fridge section, but appears normal when the repair service comes to check. The main shows the max and min so I will know what happened when I come back from work.
I suspect this system is like the wireless weather stations I have around the house. The outdoors transmitters usually fail in a year, or some are temperamental and do not transmit.
Anyway, I put the main on the counter across the refrigerator, just a few feet away.
If the system fails too soon, I will report back.
It certainly beats having to keep opening the doors to check the temperature or coming home to find 43F in the fridge and not knowing whether it went higher than that.
Incidentally, a subzero technical support person we contacted about new subzero models with digital temperature control told us that the new subzero refrigerators simply use an algorithm to show an average temperature. I don't know whether this us true, but if it is, I will still need an independent check even if my refrigerator had digital temperature display.
