Or texts you when the temp changes?
That is really clever - what exactly is a router & am I likely to have one?
Ok it's internet - but I'm guessing it's not my BT box?
If you have a BT Homehub then there is a USB slot on the back but you should email them to checkYou might want to look at Hive from British Gas. There are sensors that can do it but they are meant for industrial use and are expensive
We're taking our cat on holiday with us in a campervanWe will have air conditioning to keep him cool while we aren't in the vanThis was an idea to ensure his safety but maybe a baby monitor might beI'll look into the British Gas thingIt's a tricky situation
You are falling between two stools here. Baby monitors that check temperature do exist but they don't expect you to be far away and need wifi.
It's a conumdrum - I mean as long as the batteries are ok or if we have solar panels he'll be fineBut I don't really want to chance it iykwim I want a failsafe/warning
Or maybe some sort of fridge alarm?
I think I am taking one of these might that work as a server?
No its not a server it is a router working over 4G phone signalsYou would need an EE 4G phone contract The battery works for a max of 6 hours
It plugs in (we have one) but then if the leisure batteries failed we'd have to be out for less than 6 hrs - possibly doable if the USB thing workedI do make my life difficult
This is so close
The Philips device is bluetooth so 100m max range, you would also need to train the cat to push the buttonPet monitor might do itwww.vettimes.co.uk/news/pet-health-monitoring-collar-enters-uk-market/
That's interesting - I'll have a proper look
That led me to this pae with others on (& we were considering a tracker so 2for1 might be good)
