  1. Just a friendly correction for the freezer monitor. Use lithium primary batteries such as energizer ultimate lithium, not lithium ion batteries. Great answer and will be implementing it.

  2. I asked the question on the freezer alarm in this episode and I ended up buying this one ( It is not one of the recommended ones but based on my research and the price I thought I would give it a try. It came with two sensors and the base. The sensors have a wired sensor that goes inside the freezer and a transmitter that goes outside the freezer so the batteries are not in the freezer. I have the freezer sensors in the basement and the base station upstairs and it receives the signal fine at maybe 150′. I am not sure how it would work over longer distances or through different types of walls. You can set high and low alarms on both sensors and I have tested them, they work well. It does not allow you to get the data from a phone but it does hold the alarm, the temperature for that sensor blinks, even though the sound stops after a few minutes so if it alarms while you are away you will be able to tell when you get back. I decided I did not want a device that required a service or was cloud based which is part of why I went with this approach. I have been using it for a couple months now and no problems, I would highly recommend it.
