The unit is easy to connect and install. The plate is a little too much maybe something smaller. We used a decorative switch plate with minor adjustment.
Works fine but spndy
I easily installed this display in a few minutes. It works fine but $250 is too much for this accessory. All the company does is remove the standard sending unit and add the wiring. The sending unit is ok in quality but they removed the standard one and charge too much for the replacement.

Thank you for your comments. Actually, the remote display is a completely different module than the standard controller. Although it seems like we've just separated the display and added wiring, what actually occurs inside the cooling unit is that the display and power module is entirely replaced by different components. The remote control components are much more expensive than the standard controller, hence the higher price.
Excellent accessory to add to your order
If you have a traditional wine cellar, you have no idea about the temperature and/or any alerts if there is a problem. I installed this display right outside the door to my wine cellar and it is easy to read and check as you walk by the room. While there are other products available that allow you to connect to a wifi and monitor on your mobile phone, I like the simple large display that easily seen and not require that I open my phone to get details. This is also hardwired, so there is no issue of losing connection to have the unit operate. Lastly, it has an alarm for temperature and this saved me recently when I had a slow leak in my coolant line and my cellar got warm... the alarm alerted me to the issue. If you like "old school" hardwired, easily seen items.... this is the one for you.
Works good - Originally Misunderstood
We thought that were purchasing an actual remote that we could use outside of the cellar, not the remote display that can be mounted within the cellar. It works perfect though and it is nice to have the ability to mount it lower then where the cooling unit is mounted as it is up high. Reads well and easy to adjust. Like a couple other reviews, it would be nice to have a remote that can be used outside the cellar for this cooling unit or an app. Hopefully that will come down the road soon.
Great choice for easy monitoring & access

Very nice thermostat. Was pleased with the small size of it so it does not interfere with the wine racking in smaller cellars
CellarPro Cooling Unit Remote Display

The way my cooling unit is mounted means I have to reach through the wine racks to control my unit. This remote will solve this problem. I was concerned how this would look but with the mounting plate as noted in another review, I am confident it will look beautiful in my cellar. This company cares and is responsive to us and has helped me from cellar design, installation and use. They continue to help with technical assistance and support that provides great confidence that our wine is properly protected.
Cellar Pro Cooling Unit with Remote Display
by Cary S
Have cooling unit in second home location. Have not installed as yet but process of troubleshooting problem with another unit and purchase of this was helped greatly by Mike from Cellar Pro. This company went out of their way to try to solve other problems not directly related to their product and call me back after discussions with their engineers. This company has been very helpful to me.

The control unit works perfectly. Unfortunatly it is small (3"X11/4") and does not come with any type of housing to allow mounting with screws and drill hole for wire. The unit is the excact one that normally comes mounted on the cooling unit. I was expecting something better not the one that was designed for the unit. Not sure if I'm going to cut a 3" X 11/4" hole in my wall I may try something else.
Note from CellarPro
Thanks to our customers' feedback, we have added brushed steel wall plate to the remote control display item.
