We also have Marcell, only the Marcell monitor uses At&t or Verizon, your phone it reports to can use T-mobile if that is what you have, your phone's carrier doesn't matter. Our Marcell has worked flawless for 4 years.

These posts come up every couple of weeks and I still don't understand what knowing the inside temperature does for you at 11 am when you are 2 hours away from your coach? I have a Magnum ATS that will start the generator to power 3 ACs if the coach hits 87 degrees.

I used a Magnum ME-AGS (Auto Generator Start) to ensure my dog was protected in our RV.

The ME-AGS can be set to start your RV's generator when battery voltage drops too much and/or when the temp inside your RV gets to a certain temp.

I use sensor push (wasn't happy with battery life or alert options on temp stick). However, in going to check out Marcel.

For me it's both. AGS triggered by hvac calling for cooling and temp monitor letting me know it's working.

However the sensors also key me know humidity when in storage and wet bay temp when I'm out during the winter.

Thanks for the reply. I have AGS as well, but my wife would worry that it fails. The monitor provides peace of mind that our dog is not roasting in heat. We would return to the coach as soon as we see a temperature issue. The difference in time between discovery and return vs a later return may make a difference in outcome.

Thanks for your reply. I have AGS also, but would still like verification that a monitor would provide.

PS... concerning the posts about AGS, we do not have AGS but I do have a system that can run both AC units from the Lithium Battery bank for 4-5 hours, with no sun, and can support one rooftop AC unit with full sun...... We try to keep the coach comfortable and do..... don't discount the Misco-Air solution

We have 2 govee unites in our rv. We monitor it on our phones when were away. You can set your temperature and humidity parameters to alert you if they go above or below your thresholds. It's worked great for us during our 3 yrs of usage.

Thanks, this seems to be what we are looking for. However after researching, I see many reviews that have trouble with remote monitoring and/or not receiving the push notifications. Have you experienced any of those issues? Anyone else out there use Govee?

The only time, we were out and an hour later we went to check it and it said no signal, I quickly remembered that it had been warning me for a wk to change the battery. I go through 1 battery maybe every 9 months. Notifications have always worked as set, great product. I would recommend it to anyone I knew. Very cost effective and does exactly what we wanted it to do. As a plus note, my wife has asthma pretty bad so when were home I'm always looking at the gauge so I can keep the humidity down in the house. We bought 1 for each end of the house.
