Acu*Rite indoor/outdoor wireless thermometer. It is at least 4 degrees off almost all the time. I have a much older indoor/outdoor thermometer, the kind with a wire lead that goes out the window. This morning, the wireless one said 32 degrees (F), while the old one said 28 degrees (F).

        As far as I know, having read the instructions, the wireless one cannot be calibrated by the end user. The sensor is NOT in the sunlight for more than two hours a day (when both are) and it is not... more
