Security - Remote monitoring

Year(s) ago I inquired about this subject but can't locate the thread now. I wish to be able to remotely monitor (& receive alerts for) my RV when I'm away from it, especially perhaps in new-to-me areas and since I have fur babies. I have SimpliSafe @ home to monitor entry, smoke, camera, etc. & would like the same/similar features for my RV. Power (temp) and CO monitoring & alerts would also be nice-to-haves.

What works for y'all?

Try this:
1. visit this forum search tool:
2. and search for:
remote monitoring

If your camper always has power and always has internet connection, then you will have more options. This is what I have: I have a 5G router with T-Mobile SIM and my camper has small solar panels to keep the battery charged. I can use my phone and see within the camper (cheap blink camera) and because my camper has JayCommand, I can see the temp and control the air conditioner from anywhere. I have both a google smart compatible oscillating fan and a smart CO/Smoke detector too.

I use marCell for our properties. Monitors temp humidity and power and works on cell service.

Thanks Stan&Sharon! I'll check out the search engine results. I'm presently not very sophisticated. I utilize an Orbic Mobile Hotspot in the RV--don't have JayCommand.

I'm kinda leanin' towards perhaps a simple Blink camera (w/ motion detection?) strategically positioned to see the temp & as well as maybe an appliance / light that gives evidence of shore power. And then also perhaps look into a smart CO/smoke detector.

Thanks again!
