    I am once again in the market for a wireless greenhouse thermometer. Over the past 15 years I have had 2 and the latest one seems to have crashed. There are now hundreds of options out there on the market. So, does anyone have one that they can recommend?

    Basically all I need is :
    - remote temperature,
    - remote humidity
    - ability to record highs and lows (preferably displayed without pushing buttons)
    - 200 foot + wireless distance
    - waterproof sensor
    - an actual display vs. bluetooth to my phone

    Thanks in advance for recommendations.

    Take a look at sensorpush.com. I have used a sensor for a couple of years now (non orchid related), and am very pleased with it, but I do access it from my phone. With the wifi gateway, you can look at the data on a computer screen...

    Hi Kelly... I have been using La Crosse Technology weather Station for years and love it.... Gary Meyers turned me on to it... I now use 6 different stations that I can see temp and humidity, highs and lows, plus can set alarms for high/low temp or humidity on my phone... I use them in 2 of my Dart Frog vivariums, 3 different orchid growing areas and general house temperature... I told Bob Hamilton about this product and he loves it... Uses wifi and one of his greenhouses is 30 miles away!
