The MonBOX Remote Monitoring Appliance (MBR) has built-in support for the TEMPer Gold USB temperature sensor and similar devices from PCsensor.
If you have one (or more!) of these sensors, you can use the MonBOX to report temperature for tracking and alerting.
The quick summary:
You should probably use a USB extension cable, as a direct connection to the MBR seems to result in higher temperature readings (from the heat of the Raspberry Pi board).
The TEMPer Gold is not really a precision device - the manufacturer's specification states an accuracy of +/- 2 degrees Celsius. It's a low cost device, but can give you a reasonable estimate of current temperature, and temperature variations.
