Ruuvitag: external temperature sensor

This post is manually migrated from Ruuvi’s old feedback page.


I need to measure the temperature of a water pipe inside insulation. Currently, I am using a normal digital thermometer with external probe. It would be marvelous to use Ruuvitag instead, and have the readings in Ruuvi Station. External sensor would enable also professional use cases like food/liquid temperature monitoring.

We’re currently experimenting on this with RuuviTag Pro and external sensor boards. So far we have had reliability issues with external connectors, but this is already doable with DIY-spirit.
