Essential Info

Increase the functionality of your Venstar thermostat with the addition of a Venstar Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor. This sensor can be mounted inside or outside of your home to allow for the monitoring of temperature in an additional location on your property. The sensor is battery powered and transmits a wireless signal back to a Venstar Wireless Sensor Receiver (required and sold separately) so no professional installation or wiring is necessary. It can be used to report the outdoor temperature when using a compatible residential thermostat, report the temperature of a room, or to report the temperature in a space that is different from where a compatible thermostat is located. The sensor has a working temperature reading range of 32°F (-10°F if using lithium batteries) to 127°F The temperature sensor and sensor receiver will work with Venstar 1-Day Programmable Digital Thermostat, 7-day Programmable Digital Thermostat, and 7-Day Programmable Thermostat, Dual Fuel. The Remote Temperature Sensor requires the use of two AA batteries, included.

    Applications
  • To report the outdoor temperature when using a compatible residential thermostat it is recommended to attach the Wireless Sensor to a north facing wall where it will not be in direct sunlight or the spray of sprinklers. If the Outdoor Sensor is mounted on a rough surface, it is recommended that silicon rubber sealant be used around the entire edge of the mounting plate. If mounting on an electrical junction box, be sure the seal between the junction box and sensor mounting plate is tight.
  • To report the temperature of a room, such as that of a baby’s room when using a compatible residential thermostat.
  • To report the temperature in a space that is different from where a compatible thermostat is located.

    Transmitting Intervals
  • Every 10 Seconds - This setting is most useful for Indoor Remote Sensor applications where fast response is needed.
  • Every 2 Minutes - This setting is used for Indoor Remote Sensor applications where a moderately fast response is needed.
  • Every 5 Minutes - This setting is also used for Indoor Remote Sensor applications under normal circumstances. At this setting battery life expectancy is approximately 3 years.
  • Every 10 Minutes - This setting is used for Outdoor Temperature reading. With this setting battery life expectancy is at its longest.

    The Wireless Temperature Sensor Requires a Wireless Sensor Receiver
    The Venstar Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Remote Temperature Sensor requires the use of a Venstar Wireless Sensor Receiver to communicate back to a compatible Venstar thermostat; receiver and thermostat sold separately. Up to eight Wireless Temperature Sensors may be used with one Receiver. The Receiver automatically averages the temperatures from up to eight Wireless Temperature Sensors on the same House Code and reports that average to the thermostat. The Receiver will only ‘listen’ to Wireless Sensors with the same House Code as the Receiver, and will ‘ignore’ sensors with different House Codes than the Receiver. If more than one Wireless Sensor is used with one Receiver, then all Sensors and the Receiver must have the same House Code for proper operation. If more than one Wireless Sensor is used with one Receiver, then each Sensor must have a different Unit ID.

    Suggested USes for Multiple Wireless Remote Sensors
    To control to the average of multiple Wireless Sensors in a large open space using a compatible Commercial thermostat. This type of application would include large, open office areas.

    I returned this item because it was not compatible with my Venstar Thermostat, according to Venstar support. I suggest that you do not publish this review.
    MICHAEL -- mill valley, CA   2/20/2012
    FIne device, poor instructions
    ALAN -- edmonds, WA   5/18/2011
    good value
    CAMERON -- lewiston, UT   11/8/2010
    Not impressed. Unfortunately I bought this device as a way to control a baby's room secondary heater (monitor remote temp, toggle a space heater in the room). Apparently this device only reports the temp to the thermostat, and the thermostat insteon adapter is unable to relay that temperature to a proper controller. However, the device works well, but the user manual is horrible.
    TABER -- saratoga, CA   10/7/2010
    Works well. It would be nice if you could poll the individual temperatures from each room (the current implementation just averages them).
    MARK A -- walworth, NY   12/3/2009
    Installed easily and works perfectly
    TOM -- fountain hills, AZ   11/16/2009
    I really like being able to call and find out the outside temperature when I am 100 miles away.
