Hi @borchi,

Hmm, I don’t know if there’s anything else that might work with the GrovePi, but I think something like the GroveHighTemperatureSensor should be good for you.
I’ve done tests with it months ago and it detected the water’s temperature just fine.

The good thing about this sensor is that we already have some scripts on our repository. Take a look here:

You’ll have the README that’ll guide you, so I think it’s safe to assume you have all the required instructions in there.

If there’s anything else you might want to ask us, please let us know.

Thank you!
