There are several temperature sensors available for CBus which can be used to trigger various scenes and actions based on the readings/output of the unit.

The most popular of these is the 5104DTSI 4 Channel Digital Temperature Sensor Input Unit (pictured right), which is designed to accommodate temperature probes that measure ambient temperature and report the readings to a CBus network.

The probes that connect to this temperature sensor (sold separately) will sense with an accuracy of +/- 0.5°C in a temperature range of -10°C to 80°C.

The input unit is housed in a small enclosure that makes it suitable for installation into a wall box or similar enclosure. The input unit includes 4 LED indicators (1 for each input channel) that will be permanently lit to indicate a correctly connected sensor. An LED not lit indicates an open-circuit sensor or sensor not connected. A flashing LED indicates a short-circuit connection, reverse connection or multiple sensors connected to a single channel.

One popular application for this unit is to display the current temperature, either internally or externally, on the home page of the EDLT wall switches.
