I curently have a prototype temperature monitoring device installed in the ferment chilling system at Madocke Brewing.
These devices allow you to set a target temperature, and it then reads the current temperatuer and transmits these values to my website. If the temp difference is more than 2 degrees (the current threshold), you will be sent an SMS.
What's it useful for: glycol chilling systems, cold rooms, serving fridges, barrel rooms, etc.
How to integrate it?
First you need to connect the device to your WiFi.
Powering the device up you should see a "BC_TempMon" wireless network
Connect to this WiFi network
No password is required
This should display the WiFi configuration area
Click on the "Configure new AP" link
Click on the wireless network you want the device to connect to and enter the passphrase
This will then connect the device to your WiFi.
Re-connect to your nomal home WiFi.
Click on the device link in the notification email.
You should then see the config page. We will be using the config section in below screenshot
Click on the "BC API Key" link and expand the "Integration and API" section and copy the entire key text
Paste that into the "APIKey" textbox
Type a name into your device
Your device is now configured to start transmitting readings to Brewers Chronicle
An asset with your device name will be created in your Brewers Chronicle profile and readings will be allocated to that device.
Push the button on the device to force a reading to be submitted and then review the readings in Brewers Chronicle.
