Sure.  You could have many displays, one in every room if you want. The sensors broadcast a wireless signal and the displays pick up the signals. One display doesn't know and doesn't care what the others are doing. Just make sure that the displays and sensors are all on the same channels, A,B or C. 

The displays do not send signals, only receive. Think radio station, one antenna tower broadcasts a signal  and many radios pick up that same signal. Just a matter of tuning into the right frequency; in this case A,B or C.

So you could even have different models of displays in different rooms even.

I thought so. My display was part of a 3 sensor package, so I just wanted to be sure there were no frequency differences in the sensors, other than the A,B,C settings. Thanks for your reply.

Just FYI:

All the sensors are centered on 433.92MHz.  The A/B/C channels don't change the frequency.  They just set some identifier bits in the data packet.  They're mainly used as a quick way for the displays to tell sensors of the same model type apart.  

If you have a SmartHUB, the A/B/C settings are ignored.
