Converting a hue sensor (or similar) to have an external temperature probe?

Cupertino, November 8, 2021

According to the title, did anyone manage to add an external temperature probe to a hue sensor? I have a few sensor pockets in our hot water tank, so far I have used some very cheap digital thermometers to check the temperatures and see if the heat needs to be filled. Since I have lights and radiator valves on the homekit and some nuance motion sensors, I thought it would be good to have the tank temperatures available in the homekit application as well. I thought there would be a simple homekit thermometer to do the job, but there doesn't seem to be any like it, they're all room thermometers. So I wondered if anyone had deployed one and added a remote thermometer probe before I started breaking one to see if it was possible.
