Smarthome would have to answer that question. But right now our recommended solution for monitoring temperatures (and humidity) in multiple locations wirelessly is the the RFXrec433 and Oregon Scientific temperature sensors.

I know Norm will have the RFXrec433 in stock soon, and I know he just got a shipment of temperature sensors in but I'm not sure he has them listed on the site yet. I imagine you could order them though if you emailed him.


The "three channel" Radio shack temperature sensors also work with the RFX; I'm using a pair of them to tell me when the AC is on and off (until I get a Venstar or something similar, at which point I will roll them over into alternate room temp sensors.

It's 2014- is the RFXrec433 still the best way to get wireless temp monitoring into Indigo? I tried some Netatmo sensors- but they're just not nearly accurate enough to be useful.

The "best way" is a bit subjective. For instance, if you have need for motion sensors then you could also get a Z-Stick and multi-sensors which do motion and temp. The Oregon Scientific sensors are smaller and cheaper (though you do have to get the RFXrec) so it really depends on what you want to do.
