Sure sounds like the way to go, tho!!
Thanks to All!
As an ex-phone guy I can say that price is about standard. I assume there is not a spare conduit going out there. If you are handy you should be able to put a wire out there yourself. Under the driveway might not be the only route. You just need to get phone wiring inside to anywhere on an outside wall then use buried phone line to the garage. Since Century Link is your local provider I am surely not close by to help.

The baby monitor pasdad1 linked looks like a good idea. The 1000' range is "open air" so what is in the way will determine how it works plus it looks like it only monitors the temp, not alarm so you need to keep an eye on it. The internet connected monitor has a LAN type wired connection. Same problem as a wired phone line.

This might be an idea Amazon.com : Phonex PX-211 EasyJack 2 Wireless Phone Jack System : Telephone Jacks : Electronics I have never seen one in use and the distance might be a problem but you could try it out.

I'm in business, I started to look around Garage near Electric meter, I noticed in ground what appeared to be a Black some kind of line, I dug it up (WALLA),it was a phone line. A friend told Me he purchased an alarm from Fleet farm for $40.00 & it worked for him, he programmed in Three phones to call.


I'm off to Fleet Farm, Thanks to ALL for your help!

Excellent! If it is the buried phone line I used it will be filled with sticky gunk so have a bunch of rags ready and the shield (copper colored metal wrap inside the black plastic) is very sharp. Ask me how I know

Here is how it is connected if it is what I think.

The T1 may just have a white stripe and R1 be solid blue. You don't really need the other ones.

I checked and fleet farm says the item is currently NOT available.

The wireless baby monitor DOES have alarms which can be programmed for high and low temperature according to the reviews of people using it.
