Sorry, only one I used years ago (Hot Little Therm) is discontinued...
But, unless you already checked, some servers have integrated "ambiant" temperature...
By example, on HP servers:
# /sbin/hplog -t
ID     TYPE        LOCATION      STATUS    CURRENT  THRESHOLD 
 1  Basic Sensor I/O Zone        Normal   114F/ 46C 149F/ 65C 
 2  Basic Sensor Ambient         Normal    78F/ 26C 104F/ 40C 
 3  Basic Sensor CPU (1)         Normal    91F/ 33C 203F/ 95C 
 4  Basic Sensor CPU (1)         Normal    91F/ 33C 203F/ 95C 
 5  Basic Sensor Pwr. Supply Bay Normal    91F/ 33C 140F/ 60C 
 6  Basic Sensor CPU (2)         Normal   ---F/---C 203F/ 95C 
 7  Basic Sensor CPU (2)         Normal   ---F/---C 203F/ 95C
