We bought this alarm because we have young kids who love to be independent and help out by getting their own ice and food. Since our indoor freezer is a bottom pull-out, they can get into it easily. We also have an upright freezer in the garage. We had one week where a freezer was left open three times. This alarm has helped tremendously.

We are using both sensors in the two freezers. They come pre-programmed with min/max settings, one for the refrigerator and one for the freezer. It is very simple to change those settings though and the directions were clear.

I really like that it has a fifteen-minute delay before the alarm sounds. That is, the temperature has to be above the set point for 15 minutes before the alarm is triggered. That feature prevents false alarms when a 3-year old is having trouble deciding which ice cube is the perfect one for his juice.

I wish I had known that for freezer use you need to use lithium batteries (AA) as they work at lower temperatures versus alkaline. We didn't have any on hand and so had to wait to install the units. Extra trips to the store are a pain and I would have just ordered 4 (2 for ea) when I bought the unit if I had known.

Given the mixed reviews of this product, I was pretty hesitant to order it. However, there weren't a lot of alternatives so I thought I'd go ahead and try it. I'm happy to say that it works just fine and I'm actually quite happy with it.

------
SET-UP
------
The set-up was easy. I put the AA-Lithium batteries in the sensors first, and then the AAA-Lithium batteries into the base and within 1 minute it had registered both sensors and started working.

--------
ACCURACY
--------
This was my biggest concern given some of the other comments. However, with both sensors side by side on a table, they both read within 1 degree of each other, and both matched my external room thermometer. Good enough for me!

Then I placed them in my fridge and freezer. They took about 15 minutes to acclamatize and then started reading exactly the same as the readouts built in to the fridge.

--------
RANGE
--------
This was the key point for me. I needed something that was going to have range, as I don't want to have the main base attached to the outside of the door.

With the base attached to the door, no problem they worked fine.

With the base 20ft away and in the next room - also worked great.

When I moved one of the sensors out of the freezer and into a room down the hall (about 35ft away) it stopped registering that one, but still read the other in the fridge (20ft away) - I suspect the multiple walls were blocking the signal.

The one negative I would say about this, is that unlike the Orgagon Scientific thermometers I've used, this base unit provides no indication that it has lost contact with the sensor.

Purchased to monitor 2 freezers that are 60 feet apart. Though the manufacturer says that the display can be as far as 100 feet from the sensors I find that with intervening walls and doors the distance is reduced to about 40 feet. Found a convenient location half-way between both freezers and all works well. A great temperature monitoring system that can be used to monitor 2 freezers, 2 refrigerators or 1 of each.

After having one of our refrigerators freeze up and go out on us recently, we had water all over the floor and we lost quite a bit of food products. As we do not spend much time in the area where this refrigerator is, we had no idea it had gone out for quite some time. After purchasing a new refrigerator/freezer, we didn't want to take the chance of another disaster like this, so we searched for a thermometer and alarm system that would allow for an external display with separate internal temperature sensors for the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Every site we checked pointed to the Chaney 00985 Wireless Refrigerator Freezer Thermometer, so we eagerly ordered one. We also picked up a 4-pack of Lithium AA batteries to power the remote sensors.

Setup instructions for the Chaney 00985 thermometer are very simple and easy to follow. I had the batteries installed, and the sensors in place in less than 10 minutes. We decided to utilize the magnetic mounting of the receiver, and stuck it directly to the outside of the refrigerator door. Within a couple of minutes, the freezer sensor registered with the receiver, showing a temperature of 58°F. I knew the freezer was no higher than zero degrees, but I figured it would likely take several minutes for the sensor to adjust to the drastic temperature change. Ten minutes later I checked again and the freezer was still showing 58°F and the refrigerator sensor still hadn't registered with the receiver. After waiting an hour, the freezer temp showed 52°F and the refrigerator finally registered but showed a temp of 67°F. WOW, how crazy is that? I removed the batteries and started over. This time both sensors registered within the first 10 minutes, but after an hour they were still showing in the 50s and 60s.
