What is the difference between the Amerec K60 and KT60, I see they are both priced the same?

The KT60 control has the temperature sensor built into the control housing and it must be installed inside the steam shower enclosure.

The K60 control utilizes a separately installed temperature sensor allowing the temperature control to function properly when installed outside the steam shower environment.

If you desire temperature control from both inside and outside the shower, consider Amerec's DKT60/K30 Dual Control or the new Freedom Control.

Thank you for the information.   Which installation (inside, outside with sensor) and control would give the most accurate temperature reading?  and Where should the sensor be installed?

Ideally, a steam shower control with a built-in temperature sensor is installed inside the steam shower environment.  The idea is to have the sensor located at head level of the bather during use, as this is where we "feel" temperature, and to place the control within reach of the bather for ease-of-use.  Try to avoid placing the sensor directly above the steam head or immediately next to the door, as these locations can affect your control of the environment temperature.

The use of a temperature control with a built-in temperature sensor accomplishes both goals in one installation.  If an exterior control is desired, you can choose a dual control, add a secondary (on/off) control for the exterior, and/or add a handheld remote option.
