Here is a challenge: I previously had a Davis weather station (now defunct) with a rather neat feature. About 200 m from the house, without a direct line-of-sight, I installed a temperature probe to measure sea water temperature. This was connected to a transmitter, which communicated with the central unit through a solar powered link in a tree half-way. This enabled me to read the sea water temperature on my weather station (to see if it was attractive to go swimming!) I am now in the process of installing a Fibaro system in the house. It would be nice to reinstall the same feature on the HC2. I see two possible paths forward: a) Similar to the old solution, by using a z-wave temperature sensor by the water, some sort of repeater half way, and pick up the signal on the HC2. or b) Connect the temperature sensor to some sort of mobile internet connection (narrow band, preferably, as I will not need broadband for this), transfer the data to a "cloud", and the somehow download these values to the HC2 over the internet connection. For a), any suggestions on equipment and vendors that could do the job will be welcome. As for b), my main question will be how Fibaro HC2 can include externally downloaded data in its display. Or maybe you can come up with a better solution? An option c) or d)...?
