    Default Grow room monitor and data logger

    Hi All.
    I am interested in getting a temperature and humidity monitor that will remotely display on my cell phone and record a history.
    I see that they range from $40US and upwards to infinity.
    I would like to spend less if possible. Has anybody tried a $40 model with success? Compared it with a $200 model?
    Any info is appreciated.
    Cheers.

    I'm subbed up to a diary somewhere where someone has one. Phones on 6% but I'll have a look for it in a bit and report back. I'm thinking about adding it to my Xmas list. I want one with access from afar so I can check on em if I'm away. We get a lot of power cuts here too

    I went with the sensorpush. I love how small it is and how easy it is to setup. I did not realize that it is bluetooth only and requires a $100 additional purchase for wifi. Oh well. Might as well order the wifi addon a another 2 sensors. Lol. Good thing I love spending money. Too bad i dont have more of it.

    It's lights out I am most worried about now that winter is coming. The recording will be useful for me. My lights are out at night when it is cold and I am sleeping.

    Well when you wake up, your temp will be at the lowest point, if your lights go on after.

    This is true. Still nice to be able to look at the phone and see where the room is at while I am away. I need to justify the purchase somehow lol

    Problem with that is, you'll be constantly looking at your phone whenever you're out, noticing that 2% drop in humidity....big distraction

    I like to put my phone in airplane mode when I go to sleep. Did not occur to me that this means there is no data logged. As Jeff pointed out i do wake up before the lights : ).
    Lools like morning temps are a bit too low and morning RH a bit too high.

    Call it paranoia I guess. I feel like I sleep better without any electronics neer me. I turn off the main power switch that powers everything electronic in my bedroom. Only live power is in the wall. I dont turn off the phone since it is my clock and alarm. In airplane mode it stops looking for signals.

    I am 1 season behind so maybe that's why I am not getting the reference? Also a pothead with a terrible memory.

    I have thought about that so many times already. I just love to hang out in my groom. I work close to home and come home often during the day. I am home weekends. I prefer to have more time with the plants. Dehumidifier sounds easier lol.
