What is a good temperature/humidity monitoring solution for a data center that is cost effective and supports multiple probes per rack?

What is a good temperature/humidity monitoring solution for a data center that is cost effective and supports multiple probes per rack? | Datacenter Howto | Scoop.it

This will be hundreds of probes in total, so I'm interested in a cost-efficient sensor solution.
