Garden ThermometersIn a world where ‘grow your own’ is not only encouraged but sought over, Garden Thermometers are used to give you all the information you need about your soil, garden and greenhouse to assist you to grown competition winning fruit and veg. Garden thermometers include soil thermometers to monitor soil temperature and compost temperature for optimum growth of your garden plants.
Garden thermometers are able to take a reading of both inside your home as well as outside, so that you have an idea of the temperature outside for working in the garden. These garden thermometers can also be used for greenhouses to measure the temperatures in both the greenhouse and the garden. Other uses for the inside/outside thermometers are for industries that have a walk-in freezer such as laboratories for medicine as well as caterer. The thermometer measures the temperature inside of the freezer without having to go inside.
Delivered in quick time and does what it says on the tin .No problems.
I thought this was good until I purchased a SwitchBot bluetooth thermometer/hygrometer. The problem is that it cannot be user calibrated and you only know the absolute minimum and maximum temperatures. In reality, you need to know what is the temperature and humidity in your greenhouse hour by hour and to receive alerts to warn you to adjust ventilation. This kind of min/max thermometer was ok around 100 years ago, but for the same price you can do much better. I can check my greenhouse temperature (and humidity) from my living room armchair. Then decide if I need to pop out and open/close the ventilation or pop the shade over on hotter days. My other big problem is that the calibration is out by around 10°C and cannot be adjusted. Sorry, but SwitchBot wins by a country mile.
Ordered this Thermometer to replace my previous one which I lost. (a gift to Neptune?). To take the sea temp when I swim. So far so good! and the scale is easier to read whilst treading water.
