We use a temp stick. We have only used it a couple of times but it seems to work OK. It didn't work well using one of our phones as a hot spot but it works fine with our Verizon hotspot.

I have been using the temperature alert USB stick for several years before we got the temp stick. The only negative to the temperature alert is you need to leave a laptop running with the software. The temp stick is stand alone assuming your have wifi or a hotspot.

We have the temp stick and have had it for about 4 months. It works great and we have it attached to our Mobley Wi-Fi device. The only downside is that it requires the Wi-Fi device. We use it as added insurance for when we have to leave the dogs alone in the rig to run errands, meals, etc. Our dogs do not bark so this is not an issue for others in the RV park. It is a piece of mind for us and I highly recommend it. We like the fact this is a one time expense while all the others we found have a monthly monitoring fee. That's the trade off for having to bring Wi-Fi. It is the best solution in my opinion and is very user friendly. Good luck!

Are you talking about this "Temp Stick":
Ideal Sciences €” Smart Sensor Technology

So, monitoring only...No interface to the RV (AirCon or furnace, Generator, etc)?

This is our second year with a TempStick and we would not be without it. Used with our Verizon hot spot we don't have to worry about power failures because the Tempstick is battery operated and the Verizon can be powered by the MH 12VDC. We have our alerts set to 80* and test it every now and then. It has never failed to send a high temp alert to both of our cell phones. We can also check on the temperatures with the Tempstick app on our phones. And there are NO monthly fees.
We highly recommend it.
You do not use the park's WiFi.
