Consumer question:
What is the other advantage of having an outdoor temp sensor? the sensor broke out of the housing and the shipping costs are more than the sensor.

Aprilaires’ response:

The outdoor temperature sensor when utilized with our Automatic Digital Humidistat allows the humidistat to automatically adjust the humidity setting based upon the outside temperature. This allows you to have hands free control of the amount of humidity that will be added to the home through out a 24 hour period. Our temperature sensor will take approximately 400,000 readings daily and will adjust the humidity setting automatically through out the day based upon the outside temperature.
