i'll be setting up a new pi 3 with half a dozen external sensors (temp/humid) but they will have to be between 3-5m away from the pi

i figured i'd get some different coloured rolls of the "Prototyping Wire" - i'm a bit confused of what connectors i'd need and would i need a crimper ?

It'll really depend on the sensors you are looking to use...

You could potentially just solder the wire directly to the sensor.

Some sensors required additional components, like a resistor, so you'll need to have a think about how that might work. You may not be able to connect directly to the Pi if that's the case.
