Is that so?
In any event, I got a three sensor Accurite system for $100 and it worked like a charm all winter. (Put one in a plastic bag in the hot tub and that worked great as well)

Correct, when you access it remotely it tells you the inside temp, the current set point, the outside temp and also the indoor relative humidity.
I also have a NEST security camera set to come on when we are not in the house so that I don't get nuisance alerts (email or text) while we are at home but don't have to remember to turn it on when we leave the house either on a day to day basis or for vacation.
