Monitoring temperature and humidity

What recommendations can you share about a monitoring an SMT area to record/monitor the temperature and humidity? Is there any kind of a data logger machine that indicates such readings aside from the regular thermo-hygro measuring device?

I just checked the web page with a search on Temperature/humidity monitoring systems. Lots of information available, but there are some smaller units which could be used for specific areas of the plant such as a surface mount area. Another way would be to contact the maintenance people in the facility or an air conditioner company and have them send a representative to evaluate the total cubic volume area and determine the size of equipment which will be needed.
