Tracking temperature - how do you do it?

I have a Oregon display which shows temperature and humidity at the panel, and three external sensors model thgr122nx which have their own displays too.

We have this in various rooms but would love to get something in place which allows for more (input) sensors.

Like outside temp, or attic temp, and more...

Our house was poorly built, and then a second story added on.
Some rooms are warmer than others so we like to keep a tab at this.

Ya it is limited for sure. I have smartthings and there are a lot of sensors that keep track of he temp. I found one that's only 10.00 each so they are cost effective. But it took a little bit of work to make them work but it was not hard. That's pretty cost effective you can get the hub for 70.00 then 10.00 a room.

The Elgato Eve Weather tracks temp, humidity, and air pressure and gives you a complete history for $50. Never mind that it is for outside, it works great inside too. I have one in my wine refrigerator.

I suppose it's a matter of costs and interoperability. You could probably find cheaper sensors that only work in a specific app or non-HK environment, or expensive HomeKit-supported ones that could be used in conjunction with other HK devices. Elgato Eve Weather is quite nice (I own one, too) but at $50 a pop it's not exactly going to be easy on my wallet if I were to buy several.
