I purchased this product to help me decide when to use our humidifer in the nursery. It is very interesting to check each day and compare it to what I think the humidity/temperature might be. So far the humidity has stayed within the "healthy" range and we haven't had to turn on the humidifier. I like the fact that it also tells the temperature. We live in Michigan where we have cold winters and hot summers. Our nursery is in a corner of the house with cold walls in the winter and the temperature monitor is helpful in knowing when to turn on the heater. I am usually cold and worry that I will be overheating the baby, this way I can keep the temperature within a good range. I actually purchased two monitors, one for my house, and one for my parents (they were curious if their humidity was ok). The monitor I got for my house works wonderfully. The monitor that my parents received did not work. They said it had a temperature of 90 and would only move a few degrees, when they KNEW the temp was only in the 60's. They couldn't tell if the humidity monitor was working since the temp didn't work and the humidity didn't change. (Mine changes a few % through out the day, depending on if the door is open or closed or the temperature, etc.) I think it is a great product, it does what it says, although pretty basic. But, that means there is nothing complicated to figure out. You pretty much set it out and leave it.

It is a nice gadget to have to give you an idea of the humidity in your home. I am not sure how accurate it is, as sometimes the readings seem odd. I also think the thermometer is off, I think it 2-3 degrees higher than the actual temp,

Great for use in the home. Let's you see the humidity level and what it is good or bad for, like a cold and cough.

It's easy to decide when to turn on your humidifier. I thought my room was dry but it was actually very humid (58%) and when I got sick with a sore throat, when humidity hit 80% I knew to turn it off. I don't want to live in a room with too high of humidity or too dry because that can cause health issues and in California we don't have a lot of humidity indicators. I think any one with a baby or young ones should have this for their room/nursery. Also, I thought this product what light up with color indicators but it doesn't. It doesn't beep when your temp or humidity is too high or too low either. You just have to look at it, but that's okay with me

I have baseboard heat and it tends to be very dry in my home. I use a humidifier, so I like to know if the humidity level and temperature is right for baby!
Just what we were looking for!
from Natick, MA
Reads the correct temperature and humidity level. Our room is in the back of the house, as and well as the nursery. They're colder rooms because we use a wood stove in the living room as a main source of heat. I have been worried about bringing the baby home to stay in our room at first and then the nursery because I've had no idea what the temperature is, if it gets too cold for a baby at different times of the night, etc. This allows me to be at ease and know if I need to do something to change the temperature or put on the humidifier.
This really helped us a good idea of the tempature and humidty in my daughters room!

As a first time mom I was very nervous bringing my little one home. I wanted to make sure everything was perfect and this small hand held article that measures humidity and temperature put my mind at ease. I loved it and I highly recommended it.

I used it to know how much to run the humidifier. It works great.
