Actually, it seems that a lot of these thermometers have an indoor/home unit (shown in the photograph), and a smaller remote that transmits temp. and humidity to the home unit. Since the remote has a small LCD display of this data, I keep that one on my desk at work. The home unit looks good on the desk at home, and it is nice to have at least the temperature available at a glance before playing games with the thermostat. If I wanted the temperature outside, which requires tediously scrolling through remote channels 1, 2, and 3 to return to the home readings) it is easier to just keep [...] on your computer....more info
- Works great
This works great. The temp is accurate, and the base unit never looses comunication like some other unit's I've tried. The only negative is the base unit goes thru batteries quickly (a set a month?). I bought rechargeables....more info
- Reliable and convenient
Received it ready to go, and installed it the same day. Remote provides convenient readings of Temp & Humidity with no hookup required. Performs well as I had hoped...more info
Not sure how accurate this is. It is about 3 degrees lower than my heat pump thermostat indicates. It is about 3% higher than another hygrometer I have. I did a calibration test on it, and it was off by 5%.
Looks nice, but not so accurate. At least it gives me some idea with a quick glance at it. Large numbers. Just need to take into account the lack of accuracy.
- Not sure of the accuracy
This unit comes with a remote unit that also tells the temperature and relative humidity. Even when the units are side by side there is a discrepancy in the relative humidity that each unit reports. I am not sure which one if either is correct. This is a little frustrating. This unit appears to have been made by another company and resold by Honeywell. ...more info
- Good product
I enjoy using this product every day. Accurate to about + or - 2 degrees....more info
- Great product
Great product, I use it to monitor the temperature and humidity in my vivariums. I love the fact that I can monitor multiple vivariums with one main unit....more info
- Works fine, but needs calibration
I calibrated both units before I started relying on them. The remote sensor seems to be way off on humidity--by about 14% below the actual level. The main unit is about 3% below. Of course, once you know this, you can keep it in mind when reading the meter, and the units otherwise produce readings and the main unit picks up the remote sensor with no problem. Overall, the unit served its purpose for me--to monitor the accuracy of my humidifier's humidistat and the actual humidity being produced....more info
- Humidity is inaccurate
The item comes comes with a main unit and a remote sensor. The main unit(displays inside Temp/RH) should be placed inside and the remote sensor(displays outside Temp/RH) be placed outside or inside. Distance between both of them should not be more than 100 feet(30 metres) and no obstacles between them.
I feel both show temperature correctly but relative humidity(RH) incorrect to a great extent. While the weather.com says RH to be around 70%, remote sensor when placed outside shows it to be around 25%. Of course, its common sense, outside RH will never be that low. Even the main unit which says 40%-70% RH is good, never reaches that level. It displays around 30% RH most of the time, I tested in many different conditions where the RH is definitely supposed to be high. I have been using this unit since 4 months....more info
- easy to use
I purchased this product to measure the humidity in my bedroom. It is easy to use and seems to be accurate....more info
- Performs Well, Good Value for Money
Until the time I needed to buy a humidifier, I was unaware of digital hygrometer technology. It's quite cool. I'm pleased with the performance of this device, which really seems more like a toy than a tool. It's accurate, as it always seems to be in tune with the thermostat in the house. The wireless sensor feature is really great. Love being able to check the indoor/outdoor temp/humidity with just the touch of a button. Would recommend buying. Totally worth the twenty or so bucks....more info
- Very useful, Unobtrusive
Was expecting an accurate hygrometer, got two. Instead of putting the satellite hygro/thermometer on the outside of our house, I put it in our daughter's room, and we can now monitor humidity in her room remotely.
Also, the humidity/temp response is very quick, when you pick up the item, the humidity and temp increase after holding it for even just 15 seconds.
We're very satisfied....more info
I was very impressed with both the design and quality of this thermometer. The display is very easy to read from a distance, and the remote unit also has a display so you can check the readings while outdoors- I placed ours on the front porch (away from the sun) so we can check on the way out. I have the main unit in a bedroom, about 50 ft from the remote, and get a strong signal through several walls. I also like getting humidity readings for both inside and out....more info
- Three sensor station works well
This unit met and exceeded my expectations. It supports up to three remote sensors in addition to the base unit readings. One sensor is behind the wall inside a shed, and the other is outside by a another building. The signal seems rock solid, despite distance and intervening materials....more info
- Nice Unit
I had purchased a wireless therm-hygro unit from WalMart earlier this year, but wasn't impressed with the quality and their accuracy. Took them back and ordered the TM005X with this additional remote. IMHO, the Honeywell units are much better.
I have the base station and 2 remotes. I've installed new foam insulation and an unvented roof in my new remodel. I use them to monitor temp and humidity in my basement, main floor and attic.
You line them up in the same room and the temps are all within 1 to 1.5 degs and the RH are within 2% to 3% of each other. I haven't calibrated the units yet, but so far I'd consider them a pretty good value.
Nice display with large readable numbers....more info
- Monitoring temperatures
The product monitoring space temperatures and humidity works well and is what I expected although it would have been better if more that one remote station was available. Other units I've had performed the same functions and were less costly.

- easy to use, works well
Great product for anyone concerned about humidity levels in the home. Very easy to use - just put the batteries in and it starts working right away....more info
- Honeywell Wireless Thermo-Hygrometer
The Honeywell TM005X Wireless Thermo-Hygrometer is an excellent product. I use it to monitor the temperature in two locations indoors. The main unit has a large easy-to-read display. The remote unit also has a display. The temperature readings are accurate. I do not know about the accuracy of the humidity readings however, since I do not have an accurate hygrometer to use as a standard....more info
- Incaccurate hygrometer, thermometer is OK on both
Purchased it based on positive reviews here as I wanted to measure mainly humidity in my living room and bedroom (got SPT SU-4010 humidifier from Amazon, great unit btw.). Was excited to see that the display is large and easily readable even from opposite side of the room (it is not illuminated, however). Temperature measure with both main and remote unit is comparable with just 0.1-0.3C difference and is almost the same measured with any other digital thermometer in my house. Unfortunately, I can't same the same about humidity. Main unit usually display 15-20% less than remote unit, even they are located 5 inch away from each other. And main unit measures almost 35% less humidity than my old meter which is almost impossible as it is definitely not 5% humidity inside my house. I put Honeywell devices outside and they even can't measure the humidity ("--" displayed). Online weather station shows that humidity in my area should be about 40%, not "--"!
I wish the remote sensor information was displayed on the main screen all the time...I should pres a button to get it. You must get 4 AA batteries as thy are not included. FYI, main unit is 4.5x5x1 and remote is 2.25x4.25x1 in.
I'm going to return it for replacement (it was sold via Amazon by ANTonline so I have to send it to them) and will update my review.
Update [a week later]: ANTonline policy doesn't cover replacement of defective units - you must send it to them, pay for shipping, they will inspect the unit and will decide what part of original price they will refund!!! I spoke with CS representative on the phone today and he confirmed that they don't exchange defective units - the only thing they offer is refund. I guess it is better to wait a little bit and send it to manufacturer for replacement (manufacturer will not repair/replace your unit if its within 30 days of purchase date, I asked them already).
Again, if you want this unit, look at any other seller than ANTonline with better return/replacement policy....more info
- A great bargain!
I posted this at my web site:
I am very pleased with the early monitoring results; this compact system has confirmed initial suspicions about the air in the shop being too dry...I used the Memory key (on the bottom-right corner of the base unit), and it showed 36% RH as the highest reading since I started monitoring.
...The absolute readings become less critical in actual monitoring, as environmental conditions around each of the monitoring units may be in a more or less humid area. What is important is to know how close to each other the readings are before starting to monitor a large volume......more info
- Honeywell Thermo-Hygrometer
I purchased this model because I like the Honeywell brand. The price was higher than other models but they are very accurate and reliable. I also liked the wireless feature so you can check temperature and humidity in two separate rooms by clicking on the channel button. It works very well when you remember to put batteries in the remote unit. I am very satisfied with the purchase....more info
- Very nice wireless Thermo-Hygrometer for the price
I purchased this unit for monitoring the humidity in the crawlspace of my house. Recently I installed a dedumidifier and covered the crawlspace to prevent high humidity. So, the remote wireless sensor unit is mounted under the house and the main unit is at my living room. I like the accuracy and large digital display. ...more info
- Works great
have had this for 3 months now and does a great job of monitoring temperature and humidity. having the remote sensor allows me to monitor different parts of the house. highly recommended....more info
- Honeywell Wireless Temp/Hygrometer
I purchased this for Xmas, and it's great! You set the base and the remote up by installing batteries and clicking a few buttons, hang the remote outside, and every 5 seconds, you get the indoor temp/humidity, then it changes to the outdoor readings. Really handy if you don't want to flip on the tv to see the temp outside. Just be sure to read the initial setup instructions carefully (I didn't and it took 10 minutes to figure out what was wrong) and you should be good to go. A great product. ...more info
- Excellent for monitoring guitar humidity
This hygrometer turned out to be a great way to monitor my guitars during the winter. I use the remote sensor inside the guitar case. The base unit on my bookshelf boldly displays the humidity level inside the case. Works like a charm. One quirk, the remote sensor eats batteries much faster than the base unit, I now use rechargeable batteries to keep down the cost. ...more info
- Exactly what I expected.
I'm satisfied with this purchase. The main unit and remote unit each have a hole on the back for hanging on a wall. The main unit also has a stand integrated into the back so you can sit it on a table or bookshelf. Both units can be set to display Fahrenheit or Celsius. Very easy to set up--I only glanced at the instructions when the main unit seemed to be looking for remote sensors for a long time (it will search for 2 minutes). I was a little concerned about the accuracy when I read some of the other reviews, but decided to purchase anyway. I uploaded a photo showing the differences in temperature in relation to my programmable thermostat. They all agreed within a couple of degrees, and the humidity measurement was the same for both the main and remote units....more info
- Just what I wanted
Gives accurate humidity readings in large lettering. I am using only one remote sensor and that is also working well. My previous instrument did not give exterior humidity, but this one does. Also can be used with two other remote sensors which you purchase separately. My remote is 30 feet away and through a brick and block wall with no problems in transmission....more info
