You don't really need additional software for this, though. You could simply just keep a copy of the address, and search it up on a block explorer.
It's a lot more convenient to keep a copy of Electrum running. Assuming that you're not going to use the wallet that much, you can just create it on an offline computer, get the master public key and keep the seeds safe. By importing it onto the Electrum wallet, you'll be able to obtain the address that could be generated from the seeds and it's balances. It would act just like any other Electrum wallet, less the ability to spend its coins straight.

I already run a bitcoin core full node. I just might run either my own personal Electrum server or maybe even open it up to a few others (or if I have the bandwidth, make it public too.)

Signature. You know what to do.
