    WiFi or Z-Wave replacement for the Oregon Scientific THGR122NX??

    My Original RFXCOM receiver finally bit the dust after over a decade of use. I can get another one, but was wondering if there were other options. I want to be able to measure the temp of our freezer (AND the beer frig!) Anything like that in a WiFi or Z-Wave flavor? I have several different motion/temp sensors and non of them can 1) handle the frig/freezer environment for long, or 2) transmit through the frig/freezer unless the door is open.....

    Any experiences or thoughts are appreciated.

    Some of the Qubino and Fibaro z-wave sensors support an external 1-wire sensor. Here's one example: https://www.amazon.com/Qubino-110-23.../dp/B079J2HZ3Z

      Wow. Did not know about this. A little pricy but it could do multiple sensing. Nice. THANKS! I will look into these.

        Here running 1-Wire temperature sensors from modded Sonoff-Basic devices talking MQTT and using mcsMQTT to read the sensors.

        I have tested up to 5 DS18XXX 1-Wire sensors to one modded SonOff basic. Been adding sensors to other WiFi devices.

        Started using 1-Wire many years ago using Midon Temp-05/08 devices serially connected to Homeseer.

        Cost

        1 - SonOff basic ~$5 USD
        2 - 20PCS Newest 100CM DS18B20 Waterproof Digital Sensor Probe Thermistor Cable 1M Ebay $21 USD
        3 - pull down resistor (one per SonOff basic)

          The Sonoff RF is able to receive 433 MHz which is the same as your OS sensor. I believe I have the raw bit format decoded as part of W800 receiver in xapRF. To use the Sonoff RF with HS/mcsMQTT you need to flash Tasmota firmware so if you are not comfortable with flashing the Sonoff is not an option for you.

            I'm very comfortable flashing!

              We talking about hardware still?

              This explains your avatar. I always assumed it was you; but now I get that it is people's reaction to you.
