about this item

As cold temperatures set in, humidity levels drop. Cold air is unable to hold as much moisture as warm air. Because of this, when we heat our home the relative humidity level can drop as low as 10%. This is drier than the Sahara Desert and can contribute to drier skin, as well as nose and throat discomfort. It can also cause static electricity, and plants and furniture to dry it. Some people experience discomfort when humidity levels are lower than 25%. A comfortable humidity should be between 40-60%.

This item works great, it's just as it appears and is described online. No complaints. If I were designing it, I would add a clock feature.  see moreof Satisfied Mom's review

    I like the fact that I can now measure the humidity in my bedroom. I bought a humidifier and realized I needed this handy thing to use my humidifier as needed. I could not find this in any other store. At first I was skeptical if it was going to work. It seemed too easy. But whenever I take a shower...  see moreof Tracey's review

      I'm really happy with this product. I like being able to know the humidity and temperature in our bedroom, especially in the winter when I am using a humidifier.  see moreof Amy's review

        This may not be for everyone, but we live in a 130 year old home where the temperature and humidity vary room to room. It is usually 5 degrees colder upstairs and some rooms are better insulated than others. I like that I can make sure my baby's room is a good temp and humidity level. I use this dai...  see moreof SnowyOwl's review

          I purchased two of these monitors based on the excellent reviews. I placed them side by side in different locations to see if they had the same readings, and they always showed different humidity levels of 5 to 6 points. The temperature was the same on both monitors. I called the number on the back ...  see moreof Pat's review

                Bought this because of the good reviews. It was an epic fail. The humidity read 15% no matter where it was and never varied. I put this in the shower after i was done showering, nope no change. Left it in our bathroom overnight, no change. Put this next to humidifier, no change. This is going back.  see moreof Dee's review
