Digital Thermometer Features
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.
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.

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.Read more ›
In brief: This thermometer is comically inaccurate and devours batteries like a teenager does a bag of potato chips. The senders update the display every few minutes (according to the LEDs) but lag behind actual temp changes by about an hour. The high number of 5-star and 1-star ratings with not so much in the 2-star to 4-star range strongly suggests to me that these are designed to work, but many fail after delivery: A manufacturing Q/A problem. I gave mine some six months of trial before writing this review--I really wanted it to work--there are very few products on the market with this functionality.
This device persistently shows temps in a broad range of incorrect values, from 15F higher than actual to 10F lower than actual. I verified this primarily with my older analog thermometers already in our freezer and fridge, but also by observation: It reported temps of 35+ in freezer, but everything was frozen solid (analog said 10F) and in fridge section it reported 25F (analog said 35F) yet milk and water in the fridge was still liquid. I pressed "reset" on the display unit when I saw these wild values and they were redisplayed a while later--usually about an hour later, even though the senders were blinking more often than that.
We have a regular GE freezer/fridge and the Chaney display unit is right magnetically attached to the front door. The sender units are on shelves as close to the display as possible. Moving the senders outside the fridge resulted in them reporting +/- 10F of actual room temps (measured with two analog and one other digital thermometer).
Initially I installed the unit with all (pricey) NMH batteries.Read more ›

Great product. Although intended for refridg & freezer temps, I set up to monitor freezer in upstairs refridg and freezer in basement with the same unit. It works great!Published 4 hours ago by Diane Howle

VERY disappointed in this unit. The temps and range work great. But battery usage is completely ridiculous. It is not the transmitter - but the receiver that has the issue! Read morePublished 5 days ago by Brian Ervin
