    I thought so. I have one as well hooked up to a pi in my weather station. I have often wondered if and how far you can extend it with a lan cable.

    Zigbee sounds like a good wat, those batteries last a very long time. I just don't know how a device (any) will cope with the moisture in the bathroom
