looking for wireless temperature-only solution for my FARS
« on: January 27, 2022, 03:08:40 PM »
I recently built a fan-assisted radiation shield using parts from Scaled Instruments. My objective is to log local degree hours long term. I'm currently using an Onset HOBO bluetooth pendant logger with their phone app, but I'd really like to have a display console to replace my existing (unshielded) outdoor temperature monitor. (Without a radiation shield, outdoor temperature monitors are garbage.)

I looked at using a bare temperature sensor from Davis Instruments but the additional components required (transmitter, console, logger) would be way overkill for my temperature-only application. I also looked at the Ambient WS-10 console (it has a phone app, so presumably csv download capability), but the remote sensors are too large @ 4.5" to fit inside the FARS radiation rings, which are 4" ID.

Does anyone know of a wireless temperature solution that fits the following requirements?  Thanks.

a) wireless sensor (900 Mhz, wi-fi, bluebooth, etc.)
b) sensor must fit inside FARS (longest dim << 4")
c) stand-alone display console
d) ability to download data (csv) to computer (or to phone, if app provided)
e) doesn't cost many hundreds of dollars

There are several items like this on Amazon that might work for you:...https://www.amazon.com/Inkbird-Temperature-Thermometer-Hygrometer-Connection/dp/B08352XHWV/

When I searched Amazon, I saw the inkbird ITH-20R but wasn't aware of the gateway. Thanks for the tip!
