Default Simple wireless temperature?

Is anyone aware of a simple temperature monitor that communicates via a Wi-Fi network? There are dozens of wired ones, and I can hook one to a wireless client bridge, but the combination is pretty unwieldy.

Netbotz makes some network appliances that can be hooked into a WIFI network. But they're not "simple".

Thanks, Rmgill. I'm aware of Netbotz but, as you say, their products are not simple (or cheap!). I was thinking more along the lines of AKCP's SensorProbe 2, only wireless. I have hooked one of these to a wireless client bridge, but the two devices make an unweildy combo. I can't believe nobody makes an integrated unit. AKCP says they're not even considering it.

Default Alternative for Temperature Monitoring

Would a wireless network attached temperature sensor work for you? 900Mhz wireless temperature sensors that communicate with an Ethernet attached control module would most likely provide you with the same range as Wi-Fi but at a much lower per sensor cost. Such modules let you create wireless sensor networks (containing say 100 sensors per network) accessable and monitorable through a single IP address.

Rittal has upgraded their CMC-TC to a wireless version, where different probes are available, including temperature measurement. It works quite well, and it's easy/simple to set up. The price however when it comes to Rittal, is usually in the wrong end.
