So I've not yet seen anyone else use this contraption, I find it incredibly handy.
[Sorry in advance for the laggy video quality]
To drive home the main point of ever building these. This is for all intents and purposes a thermo sensor with some differences.
>There are situations where you might need to detect the temperature inside a tile, this will let you do that. In those cases this can be placed in a vacuum and still detect temperature. You don't need extra medium to transfer the temperature to the sensor.Another perk is that your automation signal originates from another spot, usefull with jumbly automation.It also detects temperature faster than the original thermo sensor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CX7wYE4dOXQ (about 1 sec difference)
Instead of a thermo sensor, it's a pipe thermo sensor connected to a length of pipe, it reads the gas packet temperature instead of its own temperature.

Every place seems sold out
How the actual FUCK are we now expected to self isolate if we have no way of checking our temperatures?! Went to four different pharmacies today and couldn't find one, Amazon ones (under £90 at least) aren't dispatching for one to two months... I'm feeling ill and I'd quite like to know I'm ill. Can't go to the GP either just in case! Fab. Rant done xx
when measuring my temp with 'object' settings I get around 2,5 degrees colder reading than with 'body' settings on. Why... What gives...
So I wanted to check my temperature, because I have a slight sore throat, I'm almost 100% sure that I don't have a fever, but it was a good excuse to check my thermometer. As it turned out it's low on battery. I have plenty of extra batteries for my flashlights, but none for thermometers. If you are in the same situation you might want to buy some batteries for this use-case as well, I'm going to the store tomorrow.
Should i invest more bucks for this instrument or should i just buy a cheap(10$) one?
I have a Pro Series 34 and I’m looking for a wireless meat thermometer with 2 probes. I’ll pay for quality and accuracy. Amazon seems to have some cheap options but I’m looking for something mid-range or high-end with a proven track record.
I use the deep fryer every other week or so for wings, fries, and occasionally fried Oreos. The thing I like about the unit is you flip a switch and it filters the oil for you into a bottom reservoir (which my roommate melted on the glass stove top trying to use the other burner...) and regulates its own temperature. I don’t like that it has so many nooks and crannies to clean, the oil has almost boiled over when getting to temperature, and the reservoir lid leaks if you slosh it too much when carrying it. Is a Dutch even going to solve the boil over issue? Is there an easy way to transfer and filter oil from one? Can you keep a lid on it because I’ve read that you can’t when frying
So my clinic is looking into changing the way we do things and I'd like to present a plan to move away from rectal thermometers. There are so many more options out there now and rectal thermometers are not easy on pets or owners(watching), but it's so important to get a temperature. If you clinic uses something other than a rectal thermometer, I'd like to know what they use, the approximate cost of that device, any noteable pros or cons, and the accuracy (or lack thereof) you've experienced with it. I've brought up the use of ear thermometers, but my manager and the vets said that they're not accurate enough. If there's a reliable model, I'd appreciate a reference to it. We currently use Welch Allen Suretemp Plus 690.
Would it be illegal for a tattoo artist (New Jersey) to ask clients to be subjected to a non-contact temperature reading before committing to tattooing them? Or, is it illegal to refuse services should a potential client choose not to?
I have no real knowledge of small business or privacy laws and just wanted to know if something like this would have legal repercussions.
Thank you in advance.
Edit: If it helps, I'm asking this from the perspective of an artist, not from the perspective of a client.
I’m really looking to step up my grilling game this summer.
Looking for suggestions on Wi-Fi enabled thermometers.
Needs to work on any grill (I have a Traeger Tailgater and a Weber Charcoal)
I’ve been leaning towards the new Weber Connect, but the reviews I’ve seen have been sub-par unfortunately. I think Thermoworks makes one, but it’s over $200 which would be tough to convince the wife.
Thanks in advance!
BONUS: Instant-Read Thermometer as well. Currently considering the ThermoPen Mk4
My husband and I are trying for our first baby. (Both 29, 30 in May) I’m tracking ovulation, but I just purchased a basal thermometer. I feel like I’m in the dark, and getting nervous as each cycle passes and we get closer to that one year mark (we’re on month 8). I totally underestimated how long, hard and even depressing (at times) it would be to try and get pregnant. Currently on cd 8, normally ovulate on cd15 or 16. If anyone can give any insight on temping I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you! ❤️
As the title says, my thermometer came today as we so candidly call the vagometer. My husband was so excited and ripped the package open. He tossed the thermometer to the side and goes "Where is it?!".
Me-"You just threw it" DH-"But...it doesn't look like it!" Hesitantly, Me-"Then what should it look like?" DH-"I assumed a penis and you just stick it in there and popping noise it's in. Beep beep beep there's the temperature!"
My DH folks 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
Looking for advice on a decent and reliable thermometer. I have a cheapo digital one that has always been in line with my temp taken at the doc's office (~97.1) but today I am doubting it.
What do you use? Brand/type so I can find it, if possible.
All of a sudden mid-morning I felt horrible and feverish (maddening, considering I've been outrageously meticulous). Went home at lunch, took my temp several times and it was all over the place - from 99.9 down to 98.6. Grr.
Hi folks. I'm looking for a Hue/Zigbee compatible thermometer to set up in my babies room so I can use it to trigger a plug that controls a heater. Amazon has a few (excuse the Amazon links, they are direct, not an affiliate)
Has anyone tried the above or any of the other options? I know the official Hue motion sensor also reads temp, so that might be an option, but they are pretty expensive.
I’ve been battling a virus/head cold, so we have been periodically checking (10 w) baby’s temperature to see if he comes down with it.
Today I was horrified when I got a rectal temp of 101.9! I immediately called the pediatrician and made an appt for 45 mins later; got everyone dressed and ready, then decided to check temp again—same method, same device—97.5.
Over the next 30 seconds I got wildly different readings from 97-100+.
Decided thermometer was likely shit and cancelled the appointment, as baby was acting completely fine otherwise (no congestion, no trouble breathing, not dehydrated, not flushed, not fussy, not lethargic) and it felt like the bigger risk to subject him to the unknown pathogens lurking in the waiting room. (Especially if they’d just send us home with infant Tylenol or something...I mean what else would they even do if he did have a fever, other than tell us to watch him and keep him hydrated?)
Still keeping a close eye, but damn. We have four thermomet... keep reading on reddit ➡
If yes, please suggest what to get. Thanks
So anyone want a 70lb baby goldendoodle?I was super excited to start temping and after talking to some of you just decided to do it every day, even after ovulation to find patterns. I went to shower, for 10 minutes. I find my 7month old golden doodle puppy eating my thermometer. It was on my bedside table, as it has been the whole week or so I’ve had it. He doesn’t get into much at all. Looks like he wants to be the only baby! Lol Then he tries to hide it with his massive paws and give me puppy dog eyes that he did nothing.....Amazon here I come!
There’s a million options on amazon. I’m looking for something that will confidently save my temperature so I can read it later on. Also needs to have a quiet beep so I don’t wake my husband every morning. Easy@home has caught my eye with the large backlit screen and detailed readout. Anyone use this one? Any other recommendations?
I wasn't in LA during the height of other Asian flu outbreaks (unless I'm forgetting something that happened in the last four years), so this is a first for me.
I have constant problem that my steaks overcook when using a thermometer. Yesterday I was doing a butter basted steak as per https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/12/butter-basted-pan-seared-steaks-recipe.html . My steak was 2" thick ribeye (or close enough, since our butchers have a bit different cuts). I use Thermapen thermometer that I have tested in ince water and boiling water and found it accurate.
After recommended cooking times I always stick my thermometer to the thickest part of the meat and always find temperatures significantly lower than recommended. This time I ended up cooking the steak 18 minutes total (that's double the time ballpark in the recipe) and at the end of the fry, the temperature was still 42.4C (108F) when I took it out. This is 10C (20F) lower than the medium rare cited in the recipe. Despite this, after 10 minute rest the steak was overdone, barely pink inside.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just wondering if one of the short baby thermometers like this one would work for a dog? We're supposed to keep an eye on her fever (was at 104.4), but everywhere is out of thermometers and mine takes forever to get an inaccurate read.
So I have a Weber kettle and I want to retrofit a thermometer in it somewhere. I’ve seen some videos on the best thermometers and how to do it, but I’m curious on the best location. I stuck a thermometer probe in the last smoke I did and it was staying @250 all day but the meat came out at 140(almost 10 hours later) so I’m assuming it wasn’t in the correct place. I’m my understanding is correct, It should go kinda next to the vents because that’s where the meat will be while smoking.
After trusting the oven's temperature display, I got an inexpensive digital thermometer to verify its readings. I always seal flower in aluminum foil to reduce loss of volatile terpenes, and place it on a dish in the oven.
The oven's thermometer was reading about 20 ° F higher than the actual temp of the remote one. So I was under-decarboxylating by about 10%, due to the insulating effects of a plate, aluminum foil and herb.
Bottom line is that you can't really trust a digital oven thermometer to be accurate enough for complete conversion of THCA to THC. (THCA does have medical benefits of its own and it isn't psychoactive)
Anybody have this happen and what did you do to replace it? I just started temping after two miscarriages because I want to know more about what my body is doing. The day I got my thermometer, before I even used it, I found it on my bed with the cap in tiny pieces. The thermometer itself is fine and has no bite marks, but the cap is destroyed. She has not chewed up anything in years so this is also very ironic. Just my luck.
Has anyone tried this and does anyone know if there's any reason not to do this? Want to keep my brew any the right temp when I start making it and my AC and heat is weird, some days it's really cold and some days really hot.
Some asshole has my pen
Edit: I need to take MY temperature twice a day
I keep having to replace 9v's in my current IR thermometer. Has anyone has found an 18650 variant. I've searched Amazon and Google to no avail.
So I'm new to using probe thermometers. I know enough not to let the probe touch bone, etc. What I'm unsure of is where exactly on the probe is the reading coming from? Is it the first inch? A few inches up? I want to make sure the right part of the prone is where it should be to get accurate readings. This concludes my stupid question.
