Question

How can I measure the temperature of pipes and liquids?

Answer

It’s possible to measure pipes and liquids temperature by using a Fibaro Universal Sensor with one or more DS18B20 Digital Thermometer.

The above photo shows a Universal Sensor with four DS18B20 Temperature Sensors connected.

The temperature sensors attached to the Universal Sensor will be shown in your Z-Wave Controller, here's how they look in VERA UI5:

As an alternative you could use the Fibaro Door / Window Sensor if you need a battery powered solution, although this can only be attached to a single DS18B20 sensor
