USB Digital Thermometer Dongle (Software Displays Temperature)
- Easy to install software and drivers included
- Software written by Microsoft .NET 2.0 which means you can access the dongle/readings in your own .NET software. When plugged in, the device presents itself as a serial port device (with a virtual serial port to access it)
- Driver and software programs are both in English (initial installation and error messages may be in Chinese, but installation is straight forward, see installation guide below)
- USB Specification: 1.1
- Range: -40°C to 120°C
- Accuracy: ± 0.5°C
.
* Note: although the sensor can handle 120'C temperature, the casing will likely be damaged at that temperature. In addition, although the packaging says Hydro-thermometer, the software included does not display humidity and it is not known whether you can access the hydrometer readings by writing your own program.
.
* See installation note under the usage instructions section for important software install guide.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It really works and is precise out of the box. Very sturdy (maybe even metal case, I'm not sure). USB extension cable included. Very good cap (I use it now instead of cr__py cap supplied with my branded flash device :)

    Cons: It's a pity the model with 2nd sensor is always of of stock. This one is not easily shoved out of the window - the USB cable is quite thick after all. The included software works (Win XP), but is a bit of a mess. It didn't install with .NET 4.0, I have to download 3.5 (that's a severe reverse incompatibility!). Software is not very convenient, UI is slow and messy, very bad English. Does not work in systen tray only, you have to use it in a whole window just to check temperature (would be nice to use a window only to check the logs/graphics/settings etc). Better try and use some other software.

    Other: A goog idea no doubt, but it would be better with 2nd remote sensor (there is an item on DX, but always "sold out") and the software isn't the best. Anyway, since there's nothing of this kind in Russia, I'd buy again (and I will, I hate standalone thermometers, everything shoud be monitored centrally on the computer).

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Simple device. Works out of the box with linux. NO drivers required at all. All you need is to download http://relavak.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/temper-temperature-sensor-linux-driver/ this and start using it however you want to. Maybe the C sources need some fixing on calculating the values (calibration), but its wonderful that the program returns sensor readings at all :P

    Cons: A bit expensive for a small and limited use device like this.. after all it has a cheap HID chip and a i2c (2 wires) connection to a 0.5$ sensor...

    Other: Useful for remote server monitoring. To check the environment temperature.

  • works Ok but a bit flakey over 'longer run times'

    posted by account10582 on 08:45:06 G5T 13/05/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: works as advertised seems decently accurate decent build quality

    Cons: -feels a bit flimsy, but not too bad -a bit flakey if you leave it running for extended periods (ie, ran OK overnight, but not for a week)

    Other: possibly of use, does work, but I wouldn't use this in a critical environment when I really depended on good temp. monitoring info.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: * worked first time under Windows * USB extension cable included * Fahrenheit or Celsius * small * open source code available (C# language) * can drive a web page - check your house temperature over the net * inexpensive

    Cons: * this model has no humidity sensor * supplied software is poor (but you don't need it)

    Other: * the free software is what really makes this shine * one of the most useful items I've bought from DX

    posted by elektrobi on 06:02:50 G12T 11/12/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is very handy and accurate.
    Its software can send you mails, alerts, save to text files periodically.
    Its software can handle multiple sensors, it can even show their avarage.
    It works w/ W7.
    You can use it outside also (I dont think its waterproof, but it can handle cold and warm).

    Cons: None yet.

    Other: I use this stuff for my home automation equipment and it is very useful.

    posted by Evilfish on 05:09:50 G5T 29/05/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - It is the smallest and cheapest device you can get for this function.
    - Fitted for most projects involving temperature monitoring, like rooms or furniture with cluttered devices.
    - With proper applications, you can access the data remotely (i.e., webpage) and get alerts by mail.
    - It is possible to develop your own software for reading temp.

    Cons: - The package delivered is slightly different from the one in DX, green background, no software, and no cable. This is not critical for me because the device is OK.
    - Do not trust completely on the readings. Remember, it is not intended to be a high-precision thermometer, is just to have a clue. Expect some distortion depending on where do you install the device (how close it is from warm/cool sources).

    Other: I tried it on Windows 7 RC1 without problems, so it should be supported for most 32 bit OSes.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Cheap and does the job
    - Works like a charm on Windows XP

    Cons: No Windows Vista 64bit driver (nor Linux) support
    The included software is abit ugly-looking, but I'm going to try to code my own reader software so no biggie. I might take a look at the alternative software mentioned in one of the other reviews too.

    Other: Worth the money, just too bad about no Windows Vista64 drivers.

    posted by atallo on 19:25:26 G10T 29/10/2008 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very, very simple use. Only need put and install software that suport ºC and ºF. Software made in .NET framework, withnout any proctection.

    Cons: Bad Linux support. Only Windows. Linux support is only by linux-neerds, now need some changes in kernel. Not is a beautiful acessory.

    Other: Simple but very useful.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Nice compact digital usb thermometer. Works fine, we've been using it 24/7 here at the office for several months in order to control temperature. No problems at the moment.

    Cons: The software included is crap, better use alternative ones (see Other Thougths).

    Other: Nice thermometer for the price. Buy it if you are on this kind of stuff.

    Pros: - Works fine (Funciona bien).
    - Driver easy to install (Driver facil de instalar).

    The plastic material in the back cover can endure 120ºC ?
    El material de plastico de la tapa trasera podra soportar 120ºC ?

    Other: A cheap USB thermometer, try it, does the job.
    Un termometro barato, pruebalo, cumple su cometido.
