I second that. I have a TH-03 and a RH-02 in our computer room, which have
saved us a couple of times when the campus cooling system went down.

And since the serial protocol is documented you can easily replace the
supplied driver with your own. I've written a little Python daemon
that polls the units and makes the measurements available via XMLRPC,
which fits our monitoring setup nicely.
