What else wGrill can do for you:
1.When you are having vocation in tropical island, your house in freezing north is keeping lower temperature to ice point. Your water pipe is going to frozen to erupt. It may be open window, broken glass, boiler failure, who knows. If you know temperature is abornal in advance, you can avoid the disaster

2.For farmers, in storm night, you do not need to watch your greenhouse in site.
You can monitor at your house, on your bed, with your wife

3. anything else?

Review #1.
1.0 out of 5 stars delicate, February 5, 2014
By Amazon Customer - See all my reviews
This review is from: iDevices iGrill Grilling/Cooking Barbecue Thermometer with Dual Probe, Black (Lawn & Patio)
Note that probes are very delicate and cannot be used in water at all. Warranty claim was rejected as I tested the probe in boiling water when I suspected it was off. So there is no way to check calibration. Very expensive product, essentially you're paying for the geek chic of a bluetooth device when you're probably better off with a sturdier, simpler thermometer.

probe of wGrill is waterproof, you can calibrate in boiling water

This review is from: iDevices iGrill Grilling/Cooking Barbecue Thermometer with Dual Probe, Black (Lawn & Patio)

The first issue I ran into was the bluetooth range. The maker claims a 200 ft bluetooth range, but the reality is its more like 20 feet. If I went one room away from the unit it would drop the connection and basically be useless. The second major issue I ran into is the L.E.D., its completely useless outside. I had to bring the unit inside to program it and had to rely on the Android App on my phone to get temperature readings because the display was totally unreadable.

Also, the range is not as far as advertised. It's only about 30' so the smart phone app is not that useful.

wGrill has outer antenna, the effective distance is big than built in antenna of iGrill
Also wGrill can be accessed to your home network, then you can view wGrill everywhere.

If you make point to point connect, wGrill to smart phones directly, it is as simple as iGrill. just search wifi signal of hl-link and connect it, then view in your phone 192.168.0.1 As wGrill has an outer antenna while iGrill uses an built-in antenna, wGrill has longer effect distance than iGrill.

To access wGrill to your home network is easy job too. Then you can view wGrill in all your home area. By adding CAT 5 or repeaters, effective distance can be much bigger

To access wgrill to Internet and to be able viewed worldwide needs a little of I.T. knowledge. Not everyone can do it.

At least WIFI can have much longer distance than bluetooth even though you do not have any I.T. knowledge

Wang- I figured out how to recalibrate the probes using an ice bath.
I believe you hold both the OK and the set buttons at the same time while both probes are in an ice water bath.

When I first got the unit while trying to unplug it the AC adapter snapped where the screws held the prongs to the the plastic case. I've taped it for now.

The link button flashes but no signal is being broadcast using the wifi code of hl-link as mentioned above. I tried searching on both an Apple and Microsoft device. I can't seem to find any random signal being tranmitted from the unit period.

The probe temps bounce around while the probes are held still. For instance I've seen them bounce between 32 f. and 62 degrees. 62 is the accurate room temperature. I've also seen it jump to the 85 even 114 degree temp also with in a five minute window again ambient room temp is around 62. I don't know if your using some type of smoothing logic in your temperature reading software but if I where you that is where I would look. This is the same on both probes. Please note this unit has yet to used in a really cooking situation as I do not trust it based on the randomness of the temperatures being reported.

You ask why people will pay more for the Thermowerks Blue Duo. The answer is reliablity, predictibility, yes it's more expensive but they work.

Your probes are great, best I've seen, but your electronics, user buttons, wifi connectivity and documention need work.

I hope my explanation contained enough detail.

What color of probe connector is.
We used some 10 golden color connectors, and it is not good.
If the connector is silver color, the connector is very good.
You may need to solder again if still jumping.
You need to push the connector all the way to the end.

You can not calibrate for the first 40 pieces,
Later delivered can be calibrated.
You can press "OK" button and hold for 9 seconds, then use up and down buttons to calibrate.
But before leaving workshop, we had calibrated each piece.

Regarding WIFI operation, please give me how you operate step by step.
We tested each piece before delivery by myself.

I have made a video to show the jumping temps. Where would you like it published to?

The probe connectors are silver and the temp jumps while everything is stationary which leads me to believe it is an issue with your temperature sampling code and connectivity within the unit.

woodpelletsmoker
03-11-2014, 12:07 AM
Video is not necessary.
More often than not it is problem of bad connect on probe, soldering, plug ect.

There are 2 probes, you will get two temperatures.
Which temp. jumps
Or both temp. jump.
Can you exchange the probe and see what happens.
How about WIFI connection

If it is fault of probe, I will send you new probe.
If it is fault of wGrill itsself, I will send you a new wGrill.
If all system is wrong, I will send you a new package.
In last case I hope you can send back, and I am curious too to find what is wrong.

So I had a chance to play with the wGrill and here are my thoughts compared to version 1.

The build quality is much nicer on version 2 and it feels much more solid compared to version 1. The body of the unit appears to be machine crafted unlike version 1 where the probe holes were cut manually. On version 1 the input for the probes fell inside of the unit because the holes cut for it were done by hand, this problem seems to be fixed now with the properly machined holes. Essentially everything feels well put together and thought out when compared to the first incarnation.

I was also able to connect directly to the wGrill from my Acer laptop, I was not able to with version 1. On version 2 I was able to bring up the graph on Firefox but for some reason Internet Explorer did not render the graph but I was able to see the buttons.

Now I was able to get to the admin page on the wGrill but I was unsuccessful in getting it to connect to my router. These are the settings I used:

http://i57.tinypic.com/8xo4yt.jpg

When I hit save the wGrill resets itself but the ‘Link’ light never turns back on and im unable to connect to it through the router.

woodpelletsmoker
03-21-2014, 09:02 PM
If you can view from laptop, it tells that the wGrill WIFI works.
To access it to internet is too complicated, which is more related to computer, browser, router, settings, firewall than the wGrill itself. But even you can not access it to Internet, it is much better and with much longer effective distance than blue tooth.

V3 is under developing. It will be plug and play for non-I.T. persons.

We discard design of "two large dials" because in smart phone, screen is too small, the dial is not LARGE enough. It is good only in computer. But most are using smart phone with small screen.

When I'm monitoring my smoker, I want to know what it is doing right now. If it was 225 F last time I looked and now it's 180F, I know what the tendency is. The graph maybe nice if I leave it on overnight, and I can see what happened, and that option would be nice. But as it is now, the numbers are very small, even on my computer. I can tell at a glance if it has changed, but the two large dials, or two large numbers would make it easier to see at a glance where it's at right now.

To access wGrill to Internet via a Router needs I.T. knowledge,which is more depending on your environmental including computer, browser, smart phone, router than the wGrill itsself.

But it shall be very easy for wGrill to communicate with your computer or smart phone directly. It is very easy to access to your home network too. Even in this case wGrill has much bigger effective distance than iGrill and Thermo Duo.

If you can not use wGrill now, I would like you to return to other buyer and I will refund you.

You can simply ignore the jump.

When it works, it seems fine. But if I lift it, sometimes it varies by quite a bit, and sometimes only one probe seems to be working. I will try it more over the weekend and see what happens. At the moment it is sitting on the table and seems stable.

woodpelletsmoker
04-11-2014, 11:35 AM
It is due to bad contact.
0.1 OHM resistant value change will result in a few degrees swing.
Due to strong sturdy and waterproof construction of leading wire of probe, any movement will effect contact of plug and jack and in turn resistant value and shown temp.
I do not think it will effect its use in BBQ.
Usually the wGrill shall be put beside your smoker instead of in your hands

In old version, the temp. jumps suddenly for 1 second.

But in the temp. graph you will find a peak.
Now by adding a smoothing logic in software, the peak is eliminated

It has been a while since my last post on this equipment. I have learned the following;
1) once the probes are placed do not touch them as temps will bounce. They even bounce when it is still.
2) never had success with getting it on the network. If some one would be kind enough to outline the specific steps I would appreciate it.
3) for now I use it as a digital thermometer for various spots within the pit. I do not use it for measuring meat temp.
4) the probe construction is great, nice and sturdy.

woodpelletsmoker

1) once the probes are placed do not touch them as temps will bounce. They even bounce when it is still.
A: It is partial due to the connector on probe. we are using new connector now.
Also a smoothing program is added. Random bounce is reduced greatly


2) never had success with getting it on the network. If some one would be kind enough to outline the specific steps I would appreciate it.
A: Communicate between smart phone and wGrill shall be very easy.
In this sense it is same as Thermo Duo or iGrill

Access wGrill to your home network shall be easy too
Access wGrill to Internet needs certain knowledge of I.T.
It is more related to your local network environmental, you Router and Your computer.
Other buyers had published their I.P. address for you guys to check.

3) We are developing a Plug & Play model. It will be very easy to link to Internet. But you need to pay $12 per year for hosting fee. It is expected to be ready in June.

In new design we also add sensors of temp. humidity, barometer, water on floor or in soil, sound of existing alarm devices. You can monitor your vocation house, your green house, your wine storage, your aquarium, warehouse remotely.
Also I am thinking to add an emergency alarm call. You will wear a "waist watch". the watch is indeed a RF wireless transmitter. On emergency, as long as you have 1 or 2 seconds reaction time, you push a button on the watch. the watch will activate the wGrill and send out alarm signal. the wGrill will sound aloud too. If you touch the emergency button by mistake, you will hear the loud sound and you can cancel it by press 2 buttons on your watch. the watch is on standby status usually. a small button battery is big enough to work 1 to 3 seconds.

- Easier connection to the local network. I havent tried this yet and don't see it being an issue for me, but looking at the directions I can see how a lot of people would have problems.

- A simple app for smartphones/tablets. Displays the current temps of the probes and lets you set high and low limits. If the limits are broken, your phone/tablet will alarm you.

When I found Williams-Sonoma smart thermometer sold at ebay @ $55, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Williams-Sonoma-smart-thermometer-/321382077284?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ad3dd5364
I decided to give up wGrill

Then I find another price of $199 @

I am really puzzled

The first one is an auction.

That one seems more for Kitchen applications as well.

$199.95 is the retail price.
The eBay item is someone selling individually

online and local success here with infrastructure mode!!!

thanks for replacing my unit with a V2 that was a solid move!

A few question to the trustedinventor and the brethren...

is there anyway to have the monitoring page display the current values in a large font at the top of screen. This would be SOOOOOOOOO helpful when checking temp on iphone without having to zoom in...

also i have two wgrills, anyone have an idea on how to read/access both sets of values at the same time? I'd love to capture the data from the unit and display it on a screen or webpage that i could pull up and just let it sit there with four values...(any web/programmers interested in doing this with wgrill and my stoker i will pay you CA$H....)

In next production, there will be one more page of present temp in number only, no curve.
Also wGrill will have 5 ports for temp. probe.

You can access 2 pieces of wGrill to one Router with different IP address.
In browser, you can open 2 windows at same time side by side and to view 2 IP addresses at same time.

Dan,
Congrats on getting the v2 going.
I may need your help getting mine online. Local network is no problem. I just don't know where to begin for the web. I have a little experience getting devices online from network ie. cameras, dvr, server etc. But they were all going through my router. This thing has it's own network. I've never dealt with that.

Thanks. Usually American, Australia and UK can receive in 1 to 2 weeks.
Canada usually can receive in 3 to 4 weeks

Thanks, I got the item today and it is working well with my home wifi. Can't wait to try it on the grill! One note for tomato firmware routers, you need to setup static IP for it after followed all setup steps.
