This could be an excellent product if they would hire someone fluent in English to translate their instructions. Clarity is a desirable trait when hardwiring something that controls 110v and can fry your appliance. For those not fluent in poorly translated Chinese, the black power wire FROM the outlet goes to the first slot, the white return wire goes to the second. The third and fourth slots are for the temperature sensor, the fourth and fifth are the powe supply and return TO the heater (if you're using one) and the last two are the black power supply and white return TO the cooling unit. You'll have to splice the wires obviously and the ground wires need to be joined seperately from the unit.

Once it's powered, hold the S button for 3 seconds until it displays F1 then keep holding the S key while you adjust the desired temperature.

Lastly, you need to press the power button once you've programmed it or it will forget the settings and go back to default.

Works exactly as described. I am using this to control the temperature of a compact fridge for fermenting beer. Be sure to calibrate the sensor, mine needed a 1.5° correction. Great little unit for the price. Search the home brew forums for STC1000+, a kind Swedish guy has developed a new firmware for this unit that allows you to program temperature steps based on time.

After a little research, I was able to splice the STC-1000 into the power cord of my newly aquired apartment freezer, turning it into a refrigerator for my kegs. It was much smaller than I had envisioned, which is great. I cannot attest to the heating function of this unit, but after reading the simple programming instructions, my 'keezer' maintains my beer/soda as a cool 4 degrees (give or take a 3 degree margin, which is also adjustable). At a fraction of the cost of other 'plug in and go' thermostats on the market (both digital and analog) I would recommend this to anyone is looking for a cheap, reliable way to control temperature.

Replaced my refrigerator thermostat with this, it works awesome and offer more flexibility :)

I noticed it uses the same layout as the original ST-1000 so you could program ST1000+ software with a pickit or arduino. If a homebrewer needs this.

This arrived quickly and was a decent price. It was bought to replace a DWH 7016H which I actually preferred but died (left the cool relay energised even when it said it wasn't and froze/broke a few bottles).

As many have mentioned the instructions are woefully translated but it's easy enough to wire. The point has been made that you need to hold "s" for 3 sec or more to get into setup and once you've found the variable you want to alter, press and hold the "s" and the up/down arrow to adjust. After setting remember to press the pwr button to store the new setting. The set temp is the centre of the range with the differential either side of that for starting heating/cooling.

The relays are only good for 10A and my old freezer spikes over that when the compressor starts (I think that fried my last temp controller which had the same limit) so now I've wired a solid state ac-ac relay that will handle 20A and it's happy as Larry (so far).

The alarm is only triggered if there is an open or a short circuit on the temp probe or if the sensed temp is out of limits for the controller (i.e. you can't set an alarm temp).

Cool little device. Had it for few months, works exactly as it should. Use it to control temperature in my little at home green house. I am using an auxiliary thermometer,one that is used in labs to see if the temperature sensor is accurate, and it is.

I used mine in conjunction with a slow cooker to make a sous vide cooker for under $40. I can also use the slow cooker to make yogurt, as the controller keeps the milk at exactly the right temperatures for the conversion.

I bought a few of these to maintain temperature in snake terrariums. Used with Radiant Heat Panels I don't think this setup can be beat. One tip is to check online videos for the proper wiring methods. The supplied instructions and diagram don't really help and it is not wired like a thermostat.
