SensorPush wireless Bluetooth sensors allow to remotely monitor the temperature and humidity of multiple zones of your van/RV via your iPhone or Android Smartphone. Pair the SensorPush sensors with the optional WiFi Gateway to unleash their full potential and access them from anywhere in the world, away from your van/RV! That's a powerful solution to keep your pet safe, monitor your refrigerator temperature or to be alerted if the interior of your van/RV is about to freeze.

SensorPush Features In a Nutshell
why you need to monitor the temperature/humidity in your campervan or RV:
3- How to Install
1- Install the app
2- Make sure bluetooth is turned on
3- Add a new Sensor
You're done! Repeat the steps above to add more sensors.
You can now go install the sensors using the included 3M VHB double-sided tape (permanent) or get some VELCRO strips (Buy on Amazon) so it's not permanent and you can move the sensors around:
4- Add a WiFi Gateway (optional)
Power your SensorPush WiFi Gateway using the included 120V adapter or a USB cable (Type-A to Type-A: Buy on Amazon):
You're done! It's OK to turn off your phone's Bluetooth now. Be patient, it can take up to 30 minutes for the WiFi Gateway to "find" the sensors for the first time.
Remember that your WiFi Gateway must be within sensors range, powered and connected to Internet in order to transmit data to the cloud.
We installed the SensorPush WiFi Gateway on a wall using VELCRO strips (Buy on Amazon):
But how are you supposed to get Internet in your van/RV when you're on the move? Here's how!
4- How to Use the SensorPush App
Make sure Bluetooth is turned on. You must be within sensor range to pickup data.
With WiFi Gateway
No Bluetooth required! You can monitor the sensors from anywhere in the world! (as long as there's Internet...)
The app is exactly the same with or without the WiFi Gateway. It honestly doesn't get easier than this. There is no "hidden" settings or fancy menus, so we don't have much to say here. Just go play with the SensorPush app and you'll be fully up and running in about 5 minutes!
5- What is the Range of the sensors?
Short answer: 100m (325ft)
long answer: It depends...
Objects obstructing the line of sight will decrease the signal strength, therefore reducing the range. It can be a wall, a window, etc. The signal strength loss depends on various factors, such as the object’s material… There is no easy answer.

Not sure? Just try them... you can return them if they don't work for your application!
We’ve been using the SensorPush wireless temperature/humidity sensors since march 2019, so far so good! We don’t expect much change over time, except maybe for the sensor located under our van (we purposely didn’t protect it to test its sensitivity to humidity/dust). We’ll update this section if anything happens. Subscribe to our mailing list to get notified:
Nice To Meet You.
Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!
