    Can anyone recommend a grow room monitoring app that measures multiple zones specifically for heat and humidity? I use accurite now but there isn’t an app for the hardware I have. I’d like something I can use to monitor and see from a device, anywhere I go.

    I looked about 6 months ago. The best I could find is sensorpush! (Amazon). each sensor is $50. It provides warning texts. User setts high/low temp and humidity. Has an app for your phone gives a nice graph showing changes over time. These are Bluetooth sensors. They also sell a gateway (~$100) that allows you to receive texts anywhere you get cell-service.

    I've used these sensors for ~4 1/2 years, temps & RH. Reliable, cheap, app, browser access, download history, alerts etc. They're invaluable for dialling rooms in and detecting issues once you know what "normal" is. The newest sensors have a sensor on the unit itself, plus a probe which you can set to whatever height you want. e.g. you can get readings at canopy level and below the canopy.

    How’s the accuracy? I may pull the trigger. That’s for the suggestion!!

    They're dead on to anything I've compared them to. Change the batteries once/year and you're good. I have 4 probes and if I'm running a new tent I just move one to the new space to dial it in and move it back. They're secure too, there's no direct connection from the probes (you can have 5x probes on one base station) to the internet. The probes use RF signals to communicate with the base station. The base station plugs into your router with ethernet so there's no "WiFi" hacking risks or wireless/WiFi connection into the base station. The base sends the data to their servers and your app or browser picks it up from there.
