It is not weather sealed, or really the right kind of plastic to be exposed to UV to use outside. And taking a look at the circuit board, there is no conformal coating.

And taking a look at the circuit board, there is no conformal coating. So my best answer to you would be that is not a great idea, no. If you needed something short term (say a week or so) and it wasn't directly exposed to weather, it would probably work just fine, but for long term, I would look for a more robust, outside rated device.

Simple and straightforward
Using this with Smart Things v2 hub
Provides temp and humidity. The device view on the app implies it is supposed to poll every 10 minutes or so, but maybe it doesn’t record if temp is consistent. It does give temp and humidity history every hour for a 24 hrs and then averages on a daily basis for a month. Sometimes humidity doesn’t poll for several hours.
Last I checked temp was reasonably accurate compared to a digital kitchen thermal probe, and I don’t have an accurate means to verify humidity.
Small, easy to connect and use. Comes with mounting bracket and double stick tape. Haven’t had to replace batteries yet (several months).
Great value.10/15/2022Verified Purchase
I like it’s size and function. My first about a year old required a battery change which was easy. I could not get it to pair again after the change. I do not have time at this point to con-fir with support to see if there is anything else I can do. So I ordered another and it’s working fine.09/08/2022Verified Purchase
Would be 5 stars with more convenient battery.
The sensor has excellent range, and it’s small size makes it easy to place where my cat won’t trip it.
My one minor gripe is that it uses a button battery instead of AAA, AA, or even usb recharging. When the battery dies, it’s it’s not going to be a type I have on hand.08/27/2022Verified Purchase
Battery Life, 3 months at best
This is a great replacement for the discontinued Samsung detectors – HOWEVER, battery life (at least on the one unit that I purchased) has been poor. Although I used the same fresh lithium batteries as in the Samsung sensors the best that I can get is 3 months (Samsung gives about a year). This installation is under a dishwasher, so access is not simple. I am reluctant to purchase others at this point.06/17/2022Verified Purchase
Easy to install in Hubitat
These are Zigbee temperature sensors, and I was able to install all four of them in my Hubitat hub within 15 minutes without any issue whatsoever. I have since checked the accuracy of the units and their calibration is within +/- 1 degree F and the humidity +/- 2 percent for typical room temperatures, which was within specs. The units are a little slow in responding to temperature and humidity change, not surprisingly since the sensors sit inside of a plastic case which restricts air flow somewhat. However, for me this isn’t a problem since I’m using them to monitor room temperature for my HVAC system and I’m seeing accurate readings within 5 minutes or so after a temperature change occurs.06/08/2022Verified Purchase
I use a few of these in conjunction with my Samsung SmartThings
I use these all over. Mainly for a lot of my reptiles. Each individual reptile enclosure in multiple areas. I also have a set in each of my refrigerators so I can keep track of their internal temperatures.
They’re pretty reliable other than every couple weeks one or two of them will randomly fall offline. And then randomly start working again a day later.
They never stay Offline that long, but for the price they definitely do an excellent job of logging historical data of all of my enclosures04/22/2022Verified Purchase
