Suggestion: There is demand out there for smart outlets that can come on or off based on temperature rules. For example on at 33F and off at 40F to keep something from freezing. Could be achieved by either adding a temp sensor to the outdoor plug which would be best, but could also be achieved by connecting to weather data. For example, my Tactacam Reveal X v2 game cameras put temp info on the photos it takes based on a zip code entered in it’s profile, so i assume it’s getting that info by referencing a weather service. In researching ways to do this myself, I also saw people wanting a solution for indoors so they could have an oil register, etc kick on in a room when temp gets too low or a small AC unit kick on when temp gets too high, etc. That would have to be done by adding a temp sensor to an indoor smart plug I’d think.
I don’t want to have the cloud involved when it comes to things freezing or overheating so how about this:

A combination of Wyze products can currently do this. The Wyze Climate Sensors can currently monitor Temperature and Humidity and trigger other Wyze devices, such as plugs, On or Off thru Rules.
yes, I understand what you are saying. I have already bought a few of those. What I’d like is the ability to know when they are working which I can’t get without connectivity. Ideally a product would have the temperature sensor in it vs working from web weather data so it could work whether it was connected or not, but being connected, you could change the rules and also be aware if the outlet is on or off.
