English term or phrase: "smart telltale pebble"
We are talking about a small temperature sensor.
This is the sentence in which the phrase is used:
"A 1" diameter clip for limited space and a standalone configuration whereas the intelligent sensor can be simply thrown in with bulk shipments like a smart telltale pebble.
Does anyone know how to translate this or know of a similar german phrase?
Thanks in advance!

intelligentes Anzeigesteinchen
Explanation:
This sounds like an allusion to the Hansel and Gretel story originally published by the Grimm Brothers, so I would translate it with "intelligentes Anzeigesteinchen". At least that sould get you started.

Cheerio,
Dierk
