Range communicates with your device through the microphone circuit in its headphone port. We don't actually use the microphone itself — Range is acting as a microphone, sending a special audio signal back to your device, and the Range app decodes that signal to turn it back into precise temperature readings. We don't use the microphone for anything else.
