SensorPush Review: Monitor Your Van (or RV) Temperature and Humidity Remotely

Photo of author

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.

3- How to Install

1- Install the app

2- Make sure bluetooth is turned on

3- Add a new Sensor

1- Click on the "+" sign
2- Click on "Add sensor"
3- Hold the sensor over the image to pair:
4- Enter sensor name and, optionally, create an alarm:

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):

1- Click on the "+" sign
2- Click on "Add gateway" and create a new account:
3- Rename your Gateway and join your wifi network.
4- Your Gateway is added under "Devices" menu.

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):

There it is!

We don't like to attract attention with our fancy gear, so the Gateway is normally hidden behind our curtain.

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

Sensors Only

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

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)

SensorPush Range No Obstruction

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. We recommend reading SensorPush’s full article: Signal Range and SensorPush Products


Not sure? Just try them... you can return them if they don't work for your application!

6- Reliability

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:

About us



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. Every day is an opportunity for a new adventure... We’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

Heads Up: Exclusive Deals!

Thanks to all of you, we managed to negociate group discount on these. Strength in numbers!

  1. Thank you so much for your comprehensive reviews of heating options and all necessary additions. You are so thorough and we trust your expertise with so much gratitude. We are considering installing a webasto Airtop 2000 in our 144 sprinter and am wondering if this sensorpush does something similar to the Webasto smar temp3.0? I’m wondering if one is advantageous over another? Thank you again so much for your time and thoughtful posts!

    • The SmartTemp 3.0 is a Webasto product and allows you to control your Webasto via your phone.
      SensorPush allows you to read the actual/historical temperature and moisture of your van, but you cannot control your Webasto or anything else with it.

      They serve very different purpose!
      Happy new year, antoine

  2. I’m curious if you’ve measured the power requirements of the gateway?
    It can’t be much, as it’s usb-a driven, but I’m still curious!


  3. I’m concerned about placement of the sensor. Where does the air actually get sensed? In the tiny hole in the back? If so, should the sensor installed with that hole against the wall, as you seem to have it? Thanks for your help.

  4. If you want to change the order of the sensors in the app, just precede each name with a digit. Like “1) Fridge”

  5. I see you have two units, inside your fridge & inside the van.

    Have you tried one inside the freezer – have a new DC Compressor fridge & want to monitor its performance.

    Thank you in advance!

  6. I am working on market recognition about wireless, battery powered temperature (maybe & humidity) sensors for refrigerator or others solutions. I am looking at your devices:

    SensorPush Wireless Sensor

    And I have some questions:
    1. What type of thermometer has been used in your device ? (PT100, PT1000, NTC)
    2. Is it possible to use a different gateway than the one provided by the state?
    3. Whether data can be redirected to our server directly or whether it must pass through your infrastructure?
    4. If in the case of temporary communication problems, the device will archive the data and send it later?
    5. How many devices can be operated by a single gateway
    6. How much does your device cost when you buy about 100 pieces?

    thank you in advance for your answer and best regards:
    Konstanty Świtalski
