A few have asked in the past for ways to remotely monitor temperature, set alarms, graph temperature over time, and so forth. Blichmann now has a new Bluetooth thermometer called "BrewVision" that does exactly this. While the touted ability to "hit your temps, hold your temps" is something you already have with our brewing setup (and not something a passive thermometer like the BrewVision can give you), some may find the other remote monitoring features useful. Fits on any kettle using a 1/2" diameter hole.

Quick feature list:

• INTERACTIVE UPDATES AND ALERTS
• BEERSMITH™ RECIPE INTEGRATION
• RECORDABLE RESULTS
• PAIR UP TO SEVEN SENSORS WITH CUSTOM NAMES
• DASHBOARD FOR SENSOR OVERVIEW
• 120 HOUR BATTERY LIFE (ABOUT 20 ALL GRAIN BATCHES)
• RANGE: 30FT INDOORS AND 100FT UNOBSTRUCTED
• FAHRENHEIT AND CELSIUS

The intuitive application helps you focus on what is important---brewing! Every brewer loves to have a perfect brew day. Brew day can be hectic. Monitoring thermometers on a kettle, running timers, viewing recipe information, cleaning fermentors, and the enevitable interruptions of daily life often causes unintentional errors. The mission of the BrewVision® is to put temperatures, timers, and recipe information into the palm of your hand and to provide a fully interactive brew day. In short, BrewVision® is your interactive digital assistant brewer making sure you hit your temps, hold your temps, never miss a boil addition, and chill to the perfect temperature. BrewVision® makes every brew day a perfect brew day!

Detailed features:

Bluetooth sensors: Break the tether to your kettles and put the power of BrewVision® in the palm of your hand! Indoor range is 20-30 ft and up to 100 ft line-of-sight. With +/- 0.5F accuracy you'll be confident you're hitting your numbers. And battery life? Long 100+ hour battery life using 2 AAA batteries you'll be able to brew about 20 all grain batches and about 40 extract batches on one set of batteries! The patent pending transmitter and sensor features an exclusive sanitary nut that is easy to clean without removal. Installation is simple and secure. While heat shielding the electronic transmitter from excessive heat is necessary for direct fire kettles, we provide simple solutions and recommendations to keep the transmitter cool. We even offer the ability to remote mount the transmitter with our optional high temp USB cable! Check out our manuals and video's for more information.

Dashboard: View all sensors and global alarm settings on one screen. Quickly scan for brew day status to ensure you're at your target temps.

Monitor: Never miss target temps or hop additions again! Observe current temp and adjust targets. In-app alarm notifies you before reaching target, when out of range, and for boil additions. All this information packed into an intuitive patent pending interface.

Recipes: Have all your recipe information at your fingertips! Download recipes directly from BeerSmith™ cloud or manually enter to sync with your brew day. This is the true power of BrewVision® to walk you through the brew day, even if you step away from your system.

Graphing: Don’t rely on just your memory to remember your brew day! Graphing and data logging capabilities with option to export to CSV vis email.

Does anyone have any feedback on this system? It looks to be just a $25 adder (also deletes the BrewMometer™ ) on a new kettle. And I am temped to add these.

I did see a bit dated review/video: https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/brewvision.600798/

A side note... I do not plan on utilizing Beer Smith, I was leaning to Brewers Friend.
