kiln monitor

Our power company is switching us over to "Smart Meters" which will affect the way they bill us for electricity. From what I understand daytime use will be much more expensive than nighttime use. That sucks for me because I have a horrible time sleeping when the kiln is firing. I'll wake up and imagine the floor fell out of the kiln, then I have to get up and run out to the studio to make sure all is well.

Even though this monitor won't show me if white hot pots are rolling around the garage floor, it will show me the temp, and that should help me sleep a little better.. I hope.
