Crawlspace Dehumidifier Control


I an replacing a worn out crawlspace dehumidifier. I would like to be able to remotely monitor and control the unit from the living space.

I was considering the Honeywell DR65 dehumidifier and the TrueIAQ humidistat, and was going to put the outdoor sensor in the crawlspace...then I realized I was a fool, as the TrueIAQ in the living area would not be sensing the conditions in the crawlspace, but rather in the living area where it was installed.

Does anyone here have a solution to how I might be able to accomplish this?

Thanks

You could get an internet connected thermostat that also controls humidity and put it in the crawlspace. You would be able to monitor it via web or smartphone. The Honeywell Total Comfort app is pretty good.
