Best temp monitor

We would like to feel safe if leave our two dogs in rv for short period of time . We donít boon dock so will always be plugged into electric but would like to make sure the temp is always safe for pets . I have looked at many monitors but am Leary of the spotty WiFi at campsites .

Any recommendations would be appreciated !

We have a a Verizon wifi 8800l hot spot. It has an internal battery so if the power goes out it still works. You could use it instead of the campground wifi. There are others who will chime in about a wifi ranger but I don't know anything about them.

A cellular hotspot with battery backup is probably your best bet. It's not an appropriate use for a WiFiRanger.

We are using a mobile hotspot with the RV Whisper Monitoring system. We have four temperature sensors, one each in front and back of the coach, one in the fridge, and one outside; a monitor on the 12V batteries; and it works with our Power Watchdog EMS to monitor the voltage going to the coach. You can set a variety of alerts to send email and text on all of the sensors and EMS.

Another alternate is MarCell. Either Verizon or AT&T.

Don't know if it is the best but we've had Marcell for a couple of years and it has been perfect, including out west in isolated areas.
