Central heating and HWS monitor system with Arduino
One excellent and relatively simple project you can create with Arduino systems is temperature monitoring, and this has been demonstrated very well by Arduino enthusiast Jonas. He has published details on his system that monitors "both indoor and outdoor temperatures, radiator inlet/outlet temperature, wood furnace heat transfiguring and effect and the hot water storage tank temperature". In other words, a complete view of the vital statistics to get him through a European winter. The control system is very well done, with a great display - for example:

When making your own system. consider our TEMP: temperature sensor, which uses the Dallas DS18B20 1-wire digital temperature sensor, which has a range of -55 to +125°C at an accuracy of +/- 0.5°C:
