For years I’ve used good ole LED-display digital hygrometers to monitor the humidity in my music room and inside my guitar cases. They’ve been fine and done their job.
The downsides to standard hygrometers is that you’ve gotta go into your music room or open your guitar case to read them. Also, these hygrometers definitely aren’t going to alert you if the humidity becomes too high or low.
I’ve been wanting a better solution to come along. I want to monitor temperature and humidity in my music room at any time via my iPhone. I also want to be alerted when something isn’t right (e.g. my room humidifier runs out of water).
This is where the SensorPush HT1 Wireless Humidity & Temperature Smart Sensor comes in. It’s a mouthful, but it’s a tiny little thing, and I’ve had my eye on them for years now.
I finally got one and have been living with it for several weeks now, and figured I’d let the world know what I think of it.
SensorPush HT1 Quick Specs
After leaving the sensor in the Boveda bag for about 48 hours, the sensor was reading 73.7% humidity.
This meant that it was 1.3% lower than the 75% it should’ve been showing. Not bad, and well within what we’d consider normal for a hygrometer right out-of-the-box (more on this below).
So, I simply calibrated the sensor up +1.3%… to 75%. This meant the sensor was now perfectly calibrated and accurate, and ready to be put into service.
