Xbee series 2, 2mw data transceivers are on order. Each has a 40 meter range. A more powerful 50mw 1 mile range is available.
They are addressed network devices to be set up as coordinators, routers, or end devices. The network can be self healing if a radio is missing from the net.
The sensors can be independently sited and will communicate to a router. The inside coordinator device will connect to the Arduino processor-logger-display.
