Web Based Temperature Monitoring System For Under $90

Remote temperature monitors are a long time product offered by Comfort House . They are used by our customers to alert when the temperature at their home, remote cabin, or business drops to a set temperature, such as 45°F.  The temperature monitoring system, usually a small box-like device, dials out to the phone numbers you have programmed, and notifies you so that you can take action to prevent your pipes from freezing.

Occasionally users say they don’t like the “hump” they feel in the middle of their newly made king bed with a connection system.  Most often this is the result of

Welcome to the Comfort House blog

Welcome to the Comfort House blog.  It's been a busy few days at Comfort House with articles mentioning us in both The Wall Street Journal and Defense News. The Wall Street Journal article "Google to Require Retailers to Pay" is about Google's announcement yesterday that a free service provided to merchants for the past decade is becoming a paid service.  We expect it will hurt small merchants and favor big brands. The Defense News article "Vendors Angry Over Surprise Ban on Mailing Lithium Batteries" is about a change in USPS policy that prevents products with lithium batteries from being mailed overseas.  This affects our APO/FPO military customers in particular and the article describes some ways in which we are handling this challenge. Find links to online versions of both articles on Twitter.
