Indoor temperature / humidity sensors

Has anyone got recommendations for simple temperature / humidity sensors to have in different rooms at home?

Ideally I'd like to record the data, for example in an (Android) app or a base station with some form of connectivity / export, no need for any other smart / control features. Really just looking for something simple and easy. Searches mostly bring up things in the US with limited availability here.

Re: Indoor temperature / humidity sensors

I have a couple of the Xiaomi Aqara sensors spread around the place. You will need the Aqara Hub and as many Aqara Temperature & Humidity & Pressure Sensors as you need. Available from Digitec at double the price of what they would have costed directly from China before C. Xiaomi also sell various other devices that work together with the Xiaomi automated home environment (door sensors, movement sensors, water leak sensors, smoke detectors, etc.). Have had mine for about 2 years now and they work really well. P.S. The Xiaomi products will also interface with for example Apple HomeKit or the HomeAssistant platform.

I second the Xiaomi Aqara stuff. It's really good quality.

They're 23.50 at Digitec and 21.59 CHF for two at an Ali Express store.

I've ordered and received stuff from Ali Express since the corona virus started but it takes longer than ordering from Digitec!

Re: Indoor temperature / humidity sensors

how are these things calibrated that we can be sure they show the right temperature / humidity?

They are pretty good and cannot be calibrated. It in future one is really off just throw it away and replace it. For home usage it really does not matter if they are slightly off.

Re: Indoor temperature / humidity sensors

I have this battery-operated hygrometer by the brand "Hama" and it seems to work quite well:
