    Default Room temp display

    Hi all, hoping I can get some help. We will have baby upstairs and need to monitor room temp. We have an awesome monitor but it reads temps odd and I wanted to know if I could get a cheap remote temperature alarm for the room to show and alarm temp seperatly. Any ideas or suggestions?

    I think my monitor reads it wierd too. I figured out that it was too close to bub so must of been picking up some of his body heat. You could try something like the following:
    Remote viewing I don't know how far.

    Easy to tell with the colour coding, doubles as a night light but no remote.

    We have a Gro Egg (as linked in previous post) and it is spot in with temps. It doesn't have a remote but the coloured light makes it easy to see from DS's doorway whether it us too hot or cold in there. I love it!

    I have an Oricom 700 video monitor & I'm happy with the temp that it displays as being accurate. So, look for the cheapest Oricom monitor with a temp display perhaps?

    Or could you contact the monitor manufacturer & tell them the temp is displaying wrong & get a replacement? I had an issue with my Oricom monitor & they replaced it within a couple of days (you send it to them & they send one back).

    Hi, I don't have any suggestions re remote temp monitoring. But did want to let you know that my monitor reads the temp around 3 degrees hotter all the time (even when no one in the room). It is an angelcare monitor. It does this in both winter and summer, and in other locations. We have a separate themometer in there too so we know what it really is.

    I have the same monitor and the temp readings on that match closely with the gro egg. We also have an Avent SCD520 monitor and the temp reading on that was always out a couple of degrees - the Oricom has been much better.

    I have had 5 kids an never used a room temp, just my opinion but waste of money just walk into the room if you feel cold add one extra layer of clothing to baby then what you are wearing if it's warm do the opposite.
