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.

About Me Parent of Multiples (Twins etc)
This monitor has been a life saver for us to be able to control the room temperature and humidity for our Twins. Because the sun hits their room wall most part of the day the room can get quite hot for long periods of time (into their night schedule). This monitor keeps us in check to maintain a reasonable temperature in their room when our house thermostat does not actually help much. We live in a dry area so this monitor is also great in helping us know and maintain the humidity level that will keep our little ones comfortable. Great product !

My baby was sick with respiratory virus. I was informed with the Doctor a humidifier will need recommended. My boyfriend and I looked online and in stores for a very good humidifier. Unfortunately, the one we wanted was not in stock and only available online. I did not want to wait no longer and decided to stop in my local toys R us. I bought the Vicks germfree humidifier and the moment I got home, my boyfriend and I turned it on. We love it.The monitor helps keep track of your room temperature and there is guideline on the monitor itself showing where or what temperature your room should be.

About Me Mom of 3
I first used this monitor in my 5 year old daughter's room when she was an infant, I bought another one when my twins who are now 16 months were born and my most recent purchase was for my 5 week old niece. This is a great "tool" to have especially in areas like Maryland where we experience the extremes of temperature and humidity. The monitor lets me know when to pull out humidifiers and when to put them away. It also helps me figure out if the temperature in my little ones' rooms is appropriate as the house thermostat is not as accurate for their individual spaces. Great price, easy to use, peace of mind ... What more can you ask for?
Great to have
I use it for my newborn but it's good for us too clear display
Leaves dust Everywhere
We loved this model at first. till we found The chalk-like dust everywhere...no explanation for it, but very annoying. took it back and purchased another humidifier.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
2 months and not working
from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
It worked great for the first month then it started to make a noise when you start it up and it would stop after a minute sometimes not at all. it was working then stopped while on. Now it wont turn on at all and the green light flashes very dim and quickly.

I bought this to use in my sons room with a humidifier. It was nice to see the humidity level in the room before I used the humidifier. It even shows you what normal levels should be and what levels are good for sick children. Very helpful and very easy to use! I literally took it out of the package, pulled the plastic piece covering the battery and it began displaying within seconds! Great purchase!
