    An audible alarm that goes off if you bator goes above or below a set temp range! I'd buy one! Hell, I'd buy two and set one up wet so it would help with humidity levels too.

    So you incredibly clever people out there get inventing and make your fortune saving thousands of batches of eggs from death by faulty incubators or bumped temp knobs!!! Now, go now!! Start INVENTING!!!

    Yup, first thing I heard this morning when I opened the door and found my Brinsea disaster this morning was the alarm chirping at me.

    I use a digital cooking thermometer I bought at Wally World. I think for about 9 bucks. Has an alarm that you can set for any temp and I can hear it from just about anywhere in the house. I just stick the probe through the Styrofoam at the top of the eggs since I have a fan in the incubator. This thermometer was low by about 1 degree so I set the alarm for 102.0. Be sure to calibrate it against an accurate thermometer and your good to go. In the pic the temp is 96 in the incubator because I had just check for duds. Had way more than I hoped BTW. Here are a couple pics. It's an AcuRite; you may be able to find one like it.

    They have these for green houses that are wireless and some are even able to interface with a computer.
