I use the Wireless Sensor tag in my two home cellars and in my lakehouse cellar. They are easy to setup and wonderfully reliable and work off home WiFi.
There is a great iOs app too. More information at http://wirelesstag.net/

La Crosse remote temperature and humidity sensor. I have two sensors on the system one for each storage location in my house (wine cellar and wine fridge)

If you are serious and in for the long haul, which I finally decided I was [rofl.gif]

Quit the weather stuff and buy http://wirelesstag.net/ Or, there is something similar. But it’s worth the maybe twice the initial price to get something like these that just works.

Wireless sensor tag. I use it in USA and France. I also use their water sensors for leak detection too in both countries. I use a number of their other products.

This. Cheap and easy. I put redundant sensor tags in different parts of the cellar. I buy them in a quantity of 5. They are inexpensive and work great. I got rid of my Lacrosse system for this and haven't looked back. I have a liquid monitor too in a bottle of wine I have rigged up. That one did cost a few bucks. Everything is under $70 per item even the liquid sensor. The tags can be obtained for about $25 each.

Re: wireless tags. Do you just connect it to your home WiFi and it's good to go or is it more complex than that?

Thanks for the replies.

So if I do this and I'm overseas, but still with an internet connection, I'll be alerted about temperature, humidity and movement of the tag?

Hmmm- how easy? My WiFi signal in the basement is not strong due to distance, concrete walls, etc. Do you do a manual connection to the router?

no, you need to buy one of their proprietary tag manager (hub) that must be plugged into your router and that connects wirelessly to all the sensors.
