Have a freezer in the garage? How much would it cost you if it stopped working? Have a vacation house? Surely you want to monitor its temperature to avoid frozen pipes in the winter.
Connect this inexpensive monitor to your WiFi and you’ll get e-mail alerts if thresholds are exceeded. For my basement freezer, I set the upper threshold to 5 degrees F. I didn’t set a lower threshold since I want it to be as cold as possible. e-mail alerts are free. You can get SMS text messages and other benefits with a subscription.
Here is an example e-mail alert…
There’s a web console where you set-up alerts and view logs.
You can also get an on-demand reading with a web browser. No set-up is required for your local network. To check it from a remote location, you would need to set-up port forwarding on your router.
The display is nice. When walking by, I don’t have to open the freezer to check the temperature.
Very easy to set-up. You can buy it on Amazon by clicking our affiliate link here
