    Has anyone used a remote wireless thermometer over a long distance? My coop is about 75 yds from the house. I'm looking to find a way to monitor the temp inside the coop at the house. all the remote indoor/outdoor i've tried don't have the range needed. any success out there?

    I have a remote thermometer that I got from Harbor Freight for $12 that has a range up 350 feet. Don't have it in my coop but it works great have been using it for 3 years now.
