Want WiFi Temp sensor


Hi I’m looking for a low cost thermometer to put in an upstairs bedroom with WiFi so I can check the temperature in my phone.

I have seen Bluetooth ones like a switchbot, but you have to get a hub too.

I don’t have the second generation Alexa because I think that one has a temp function.

Anybody that can steer me in the right direction?

Thank you.

Re: Want WiFi Temp sensor


You just want a thermometer, not a thermostat?

We don't know your budget, but just search Amazon for "wifi thermometer" and a bunch will come up.

Thanks for chiming in. I figured out my plan which I never thought of. I already have a weather station, La Crosse, and and outside sensor and it uses WiFi. I can get another sensor for that unit.

Re: Want WiFi Temp sensor


I just went through a similar thing trying to find a wifi temp sensor for a remote property. I ended up deploying an old wifi thermostat I had around. I just plugged it into the wall with a 24vac wall wart transformer and it is not connected to the HVAC system there... just used for temp monitoring. I even made a little stand out of some scrap wood I had around for it to sit on a shelf. That was easier and cheaper than anything else I found and works perfectly. If your LaCrosse setup isn't satisfactory try this. If you don't have an old wifi stat basic ones are very cheap.

I had also thought about a WiFi thermostat not connected to HVAC. Luckily this la crosse is going to be ok. I got another temp/humidity sensor for 19.99. I like it so much I may buy a few to put all over, even in the basement. The funny thing about WiFi is that once you start, you want to keep getting more, lol.

They have some on Amazon for around $15, too. It is really handy to know the temperatures around your house, especially in climates where pipes can freeze.
