SmartSense Temperature/Humidity Sensor

The SmartSense Temperature and Humidity Sensor detects changes in in-home temperature and humidity.

By reporting these changes in climate, the sensor—together with your SmartThings setup—helps you maintain your ideal comfort level and reduce wasted energy. The SmartSense Temperature and Humidity sensor is intended for indoor use only and is perfect for monitoring and protecting musical instruments, clothes, electronics, furniture, artwork, wine, and other humidity-sensitive household items.

Key features of the sensor include a built-in power amplifier for exceptional range, accurate temperature reporting down to 0.1°C, humidity reporting down to 1% RH, and an easy-to-install mounting plate.
