remote thermometer that works with an IPhone

  1. Does anyone have a dual probe meat thermometer that works with an IPhone? I did a search on Google and came up with only 1. If you have one or know of a site that I can read about it please let me know. Thanks and Happy Smoking!!!

    The Apple IGrill is the only thing that pops to my mind and IIRC it only has one probe.
     
  3. Both Guru and Stoker have a wifi version of their device that can be accessed on the iPhone with an internet connection.  Coupled with a fan you can control the cooker via the 'net.  Without the fan it's a thermometer.

    iDevices' iGrill is a Bluetooth thermometer.  They are a sponsor of this site so I guess its OK to link to it: http://store.igrillinc.com/igrill-black/   I heard you can get a cheaper price by going to the ATT store.

    There's also a new Thermapen, Model #292-601, that works with iPhone and Android. 

    I have an iGrill and though I've only used in a few times, I really like it.

    I have an Igrill with dual probes and it is major sucky as far as I'm concerned.  Suppose to have a range of around 200+ feet.  At 75 feet I lose connection.  Too many times it never makes connection to my phone when I fire it up. 

    A big waste money!
     
  5. That's a shame.  I sit in the house and monitor the grill in my easy chair.  I did find that when it gets warm is looses connectivity so I try to keep the receiver transmitter shaded during the day. Have you upgraded to Version 2.7.0?  If not give that a try.  They say they fixed Bluetooth connectivity issues in that version.

    It does go thru batteries - I solved that with rechargeables though alkaline batteries are 1.5 v each and the NiMH are 1.2  v each therefore the battery detector never gets 4 bars because it measures battery voltage as battery life.  NiMH batteries may not have the full voltage as alkaline batteries but they stay at that voltage a lot longer.

    More use will tell the tale.
