Believe it or not, there are many entries about these devices. People want/need a thermometer where they can get the temperature on demand, or can set a specific reporting interval.
Many of these devices only report temperature when it is changing or if the change of significant. Some only report every six hours or so to save the battery.
My specific need is having the exact temperature of a room on a different floor in my house available when I need the information. I don’t need it from five hours ago, I don’t need it from last week, I don’t need it within five degrees. I need the information now or when I ask for it and it needs to be accurate.
From what I’m seeing, no one has found this device or if they have found it they’re too busy playing with it and enjoying it to talk about it. I have been through Aqpapa and Sonoff (won’t stay connected), Visonic (not configurable), and several others. Just today, I ordered three more manufacturer’s devices in order to test them to see if I can get what I want.
Has anyone found a thermometer that will report either on demand or at a configurable interval?
I will add this codicil: Because I am limited in what I want, I have not looked into many multi devices could possibly hold the key to what I’m looking for, if there is one of those let me know.
