Honeywell T280R - Wireless Temperature Sensor Probe Reviews
Submitted on 05/18/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell T280R is a temperature sensor probe designed for use with an actual temperature sensor, such as the Honeywell 5821. Using a probe is useful if you need to monitor the temperature in a different location from the sensor itself. Some big advantages to using a temperature probe include an extended temperature range and the ability to more easily position the device exactly where you need it. We think the Honeywell T280R is an excellent product, and we give it a 5 Star rating.
There are many things we like about the Honeywell T280R. For one, it is very flexible and easy to position into a desired location. The temperature sensor can be set to trigger at below freezing temperatures when used with a probe. This makes the Honeywell T280R perfect for monitoring walk-in freezers and other areas with tight spaces. Remember, most temperature sensors used with the Honeywell T280R cannot withstand temperatures as low as what the probe is capable of withstanding. We have found that the probe works very reliably, and it has a great build quality. Also, it is very easy to connect and set up.
There are not many downsides regarding the Honeywell T280R. One issue is that it cannot be used on its own. It must be used with an actual temperature sensor. The Honeywell T280R is just a probe. It is not a temperature sensor. Remember that the Honeywell T280R will require an input on the temperature sensor. If you run out of inputs, then you will not be able to add another probe, so keep that in mind. But other than that, we are pleased with the Honeywell T280R, and it gets 5 Stars.
Good: Flexible, Easy to Position, Withstands Very Low Temperatures, Great for Walk-In Freezers, Reliable, Excellent Build Quality
Bad: Not a Standalone Device, Limited Inputs on Temperature Sensor
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
