Monitoring Kegerator or Fermentation Temps With Samsung SmartThings

I have Samsung SmartThings installed in my home.  SmartThings requires a central hub.  That hub communicates with other… SmartThings.  Loads of compatible devices using a number of protocols are available from multiple vendors.  Search Amazon for “smartthings” to see what’s out there.  After these things are connected, you can program automations or routines that define how they operate under certain conditions.  All of this is interoperable with other platforms like Google Home and Alexa.

This post is about using SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor to monitor temperatures in your kegerator or fermentation chamber.  Labels and photos show both kegerator and fermentation chamber scenarios.  This concept should work for both applications.

The Multipurpose Sensor can do several things including monitor temperature.  Note that a SmartThings hub and Wi-Fi are also required.

Inkbird ITH-20R Indoor Outdoor Wireless Digital Thermometer – monitor kegerator & fermentation chamber temps

Inkbird ITH-20R Digital Hygrometer Indoor Outdoor Wireless Receiver Thermometer with Accurate Temperature Display for House Kitchen Baby Room Courtyard Brewhouse and Public Places Rainproof Function

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 💫Easy Operation💫 You can instantly monitor the humidity and the temperature with our hygrometer, the data of indoor and outdoor will display on the LCD at the same time. The temperature measurement range of the thermometer is -58~257°F, and the humidity measurement range is 10~95%.
  • 💫Elegant Design💫The stylish hygrometer is equipped with a large backlight LCD and it has a clip on it’s back, you can place it at anywhere steadily, or you can also fix it on the wall as the receiver has a hole on the back surface.
  • 💫Instant Read💫The transmission distance of the digital hygrometer is up to 300 feet, and the data will update in 10 seconds, you can monitor the humidity and the temperature instantly without checking the transmitter constantly and get ready for the changes in the weather.
  • 💫External Probe💫Our probe can be put into most kinds of liquid to measure the temperature, you can use it in a pool or in a brewhouse. As the probe is fine, you can also use it in narrow places or relatively closed environment.

 

Thoughts from HBF… So, this has two wireless sensors along with an ambient thermometer that’s built into the main unit.  It also records minimum and maximum temps for each sensor.  You could use one sensor in your fermentation chamber and one sensor in your kegerator to monitor temperatures.  Or, you could use the wireless probe for your kegerator or fermentation chamber and the base unit to track ambient temps.  The min and max feature would also give you a great idea about how things are working.  As a bonus you also get all the same info for the ambient temp where the base is located.  Note that the sensors need to be within the stated range of this unit (or closer).
