Hi Bert , i would avoid USA because of shipment, taxes, zoll..... etc. AW129 is an option , but price difference is so small. I wont use it for kitchen, but to insert the probe in a air tube of my solar-air-pannel i'm building, to monitor air's temperature.

The AW131 and AW129 shutdown automatically after some time!

If the temperature does not raise above 125 degrees Celcius you can probably use an external sensor connected to an RFXSensor?
I think the 433.92MHz RFXSensor will become available in a week or two. Contact support rfxcom.com for the external sensor which is a special for this solution.

In that case you will need the 80002 USB 433.92MHz receiver http://www.rfxcom.com/receivers.htm#80002 or a LAN version 81003 or 83003 if you like.
You can add the 40079 868.95 receiver for Visonic to a 1 or 2 port interface. (USB and 81003 is 1 port, 83003 is 2 port)

The transmitter is not necessary unless you want to control RF modules like KlikAanKlikUit, Chacon, HomeEasy, Ninja or Harrison curtains.
It is preferred to control the X10/Xanura with the CTX35.
If you need the transmitter you can select the 89002 USB 433.92MHz RFXmitter http://www.rfxcom.com/receivers.htm#40079 or if you have selected the 2 port 83003 LAN receiver you can add the 89031 RFXmitter module to this interface. http://www.rfxcom.com/transmitters.htm#89031

OK , last check :

i need LAN ,
receiver (to receive oregon thgr devices, and x10 security ds90 etc, i already have) : 83003 with 2 ports
+ temp. sensor 433.92MHz RFXSensor (next coming) , receiver,= PORT 1
+ transmitter (to arm/disarm sc-9000 alarm unit or ninja mount control) : 89031 = PORT 2

iS IT RIGHT?

what i don't know is : what is the probe to insert in my panel that will send data to rfxsensor?

That is the correct configuration. With that order you get an external temp sensor for free.
If you order the 40065 RFXSensor http://www.rfxcom.com/sensors.htm#40065 you can email sales to deliver the 433.92 version.

A little doubt !(in next minutes i place order !............)

if RFXSENSOR (40065 -"433.92 edition") is wireless , i don't use ONE port of the receiver : right ?

then

Description of the 310MHz RFXSensor Type-3.
The RFXSensor unit is a wireless battery powered temperature sensing transmitter with one hard-wired temperature sensor and optional wired external sensors.
This RFXSensor Type-3 can have up to 7 external wired sensors connected.

you give me for free ONE of the seven external wired sensors : right?
how can i use the hard-wired temperatur sensor : extrnal ambient temp: right?

waiting to place order :D

The RFXSensor can have up to 7 external 1-wire sensors of type DS18B20 / DS2438. 1-Wire sensors need 1 wire for the data signal but also a ground wire and power wire, so 3 wires in total. It is possible to use the 1-Wire sensors with a 2 wire connection (power steal mode) but it is better to use the power wire too. The RFXsensor is using 3 wires with the power switched to save battery power. With 1 external sensor connected the battery life is about 2 years.
You will get the DS18B20 sealed with a cable attached. The DS18B20 is a temperature sensor and the DS2438 is a temperature sensor with voltage and A/D sensor.
