It gets cold here, to say the least. At times I'm away from the house for a bit and if the heater were to stop running, a power outage happened and prevented the heater from coming back on, my fuel ran out somehow or whatever, I'd have frozen pipes and a severely damaged home. So I started looking into some remote monitoring that would allow me to get notifications via email or text in the event that something wasn't right. I came across these.https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Tempera ... tick&psc=1
Not sure if anyone else is using something similar that they recommend. ***Queue JBI with some sweet home built RPi or Arduino***. A lot of these run wireless, I'm not opposed to a wired versions either. The above link is pretty pricey although I have to say that the lifetime data and storage seems amazing to not worry about it for any reason. I'd assume most of these support some form of watchdog event notification for when the device doesn't phone home for X minutes.
Anyhow, any insight from fellow gerbils who want to protect their nests?
