Gadget Freak Case #183: Woodstove Temp Monitor and Alert

Gadget Freak Case #183: Woodstove Temp Monitor and Alert

Paul Westaway wanted to make sure his woodstove didn't exceed the upper limit of temperature and overheat, thus damaging the stove or causing a fire. He wanted a monitor that could send out an alert if the stove got too hot. He was surprised he couldn't find a monitor available commercially. So, like any enterprising Gadget Freak, he decided to make one of his own. Using a handful of inexpensive components, Westaway created his own Woodstove Digital Temperature Monitor.
