I'm thinking about a project for a set of remote temp sensors for where my dog sleeps in the garrage under my workbench.

The outside temps here can range from near -10 to +115 give or take.

My electronic project skills are kind of limited but would like to see how I may do this.

It could also serve as a early warning for when the Heat lamp and heated bed give out.

I have found a few projects on line but no super detailed instructions.

(I wasn't sure what tag to use on this so I put vb.net)

Any Ideas ?

Thanks for your time.

Here is one that might just fit the bill.
http://labs.vectorform.com/2011/10/remote-temperature-monitoring-with-the-arduino-sm5100b/[^]

Although I don't want to use SMS I may be able to do something else.

I think this is clear enough to follow along with and the links provided seem to be of great help for parts and resources to complet the project.

Next step, just dive in and do it. :)

If you're still interested, National Semiconductor used to make a broad line of analog ICs at a reasonable price, including a cheap, 4-pin temperature sensor called a LM20. Since Texas Instruments bought out (and destroyed) this excellent company, you have to deal with them now. Try this link:

Temperature Sensor Eval Board[^]

It contains three sensors, and connections to the outputs of each. There are also links to application notes, which usually offer complete reference designs free for your use.
