Re: Question about measuring temperatures
- OK, maybe their website doesn't have the best layout for end-
consumers wanting to buy the "kit" - but it's pretty good for
describing the button, and for MASS ordering. If you call them
they're VERY HELPFUL. I've certainly been spoiled by getting the
info on just about anything sans human interaction, 24-7, but the
employment of an actual US-based operator that actually knows what
they're talking about has its merits too.
If you look at the chart here -
you'll note that there are several button options.
When I was buying, I got the DS1921G ($15). Today, I would get
either the 1922L (more memory, better resolution, same effectivity
temp range (-40C - 85 C) - $28) or the DS-1923, which is the same as
the 1922L but it also measures humidity ($55).
The only thing that's missing on the webpage is the fact that any of
these buttons are available in "Kit" form - the kit gives you the
cables/software needed to hook the button up to your PC. I don't
know specifically what the premium was in terms of price for the kit,
but I seem to recall it added about $20 to the price of the base
There's no way I can find to order the "kit" off the webpage, but if
you call them they'll sell you one.
