Default Remote monitoring Temp/Humidity & Water Leaks

Today there are lots of options that allow us to monitor our coaches when we are away. I went with the Govee line as I wanted mainly to monitor for water leaks and temp/humidity in the coach. I have been using the sensors for a year and they are pretty nice. The ones that I use have WiFi and connect to my cellular router on the bus, that allows them to upload to the cloud (free) and then I can get alerts or just check the status on my phone. You can configure temp/humidity alerts to whatever you want. If you get the units that use a base station you can add as many sensors to them as you want. So yeah you could put them in the fridge if you wanted too.

What is really awesome is that Govee has already released their Black Friday discount codes so you can get some serious discounts. I just bought a second WiFi temp monitor to put in the bays for $10 which is normally $49. You have to get the codes from the Govee Website and then apply them to your Amazon cart at checkout. If you want more than one item you will have to checkout multiple times because Amazon will only apply one coupon at a time.

They also have lights, motion sensors, and door sensors. All of which can be controlled through Google or Alexa.

Awesome, thanks. We have a sensor puck (sensor push) watching temp and humidity. The lot we keep it at has WiFi so we do get daily reports. Coach hit 110 this summer.

Some assembly required, but these are real cheap and work to monitor just about anything you want...

I have one in the bus to check temps, and a few around the house to make sure the water heaters dont get too hot.

The ones I have are these:

Not for everyone, requires some soldering, but pretty nice when its done ;}
