Probe Style

This type of freezer thermometer mounts to the exterior of your freezer or on a wall or shelf nearby. A probe attached to a cord monitors the freezer temp. While you need to be near the freezer in order to hear the alarm, you don’t have to worry about a wireless signal being compromised, and fewer batteries are required than with a remote unit that consists of a sensor and base.
