Theres many posts about it in the DIY
Short version is you wire it up in such a way that it powers an electrical socket, you plug your freezer into it. It measures the temperature, when it gets below that temp, it turns the power off to the freezer...when it reaches a certain amount above that temp it turns it back on.
Useful for turning chest freezers into fridge temps basically as most freezers warmest setting is well below freezing, because chest freezers in general are more efficient since you dont dump all the cold air out every time you open it like you would a stand up fridge...and you can fit way more kegs in even a small 7.1cu cf than you could in most fridges.
