Indoor Thermometer - Check temp at home while at work
Hello! I sure hope this qualifies as a Tech category!
I'm looking to build (or possibly buy) an indoor digital thermometer that transmits the temperature information to my computer over the internet. The goal is to be able to check the temperature of my house while I'm at work, or anyplace else with internet access.
Do any of you know of a simple way to build this? Has it been done before?
With temperatures here in Washington DC breaking records this week (over 100F) I'm worried about my pets health at home, and more worried that the a/c will go out while I'm away and I'd never know. This could result in the death of my pets, and I'd love to be able to be informed in time if something were to happen and the temperature rose suddenly (or dipped, in winter).
Help in the right direction is greatly appreciated!
