Low Cost Remote Temperature Monitor with Alarm

You need to monitor the temperature in one place like warehouse, greenhouse, etc. But you can't stay there all the time. You want a remote temperature monitor installed at home or your office, so that it can alert you in time. With just a few affordable smart gadgets, you can easily build a WIFI wireless temperature monitoring system that will solve your problem perfectly.

After that, the former will be installed in your target place (warehouse, greenhouse, etc), and the latter will be installed at home or your office. Two smart switches require association via an app on your Android phone. When the temperature in your target place is higher or lower than the value that you set up, the data will be shared from one smart switch to the other one, and then the alarm will go off. Of course, you can also check the alarm on or off on your phone anytime and anywhere. It sounds so easy, doesn't it? Better yet, this is a set of low-cost DIY remote temperature monitors with alarm.
