One of the interesting suggestions I've seen for a moisture sensor is to
put one contact on each side of an alligator clip and clamp a cheap
(uncoated) aspirin tablet between the contacts. Water disolves the
aspirin and you have contact...
let us know how you finally set this up.
I've intended to do a temperature sensor network for various place in my
house and crawl space. One of the things I looked at was a single wire
sensor network. I think it was by Dallas Semiconductor. Maybe they
have something to sense moisture that would be real engineering.
