    edit: I stand corrected. The re-naming is persistent, and the display does reflect the name. I powered it up to see.

    Thank you very much Keith. Depending on how this PI turns out, I may just have to make the switch..

    The probes are not chipped. It reads based on the port you put it in, and you can rename it what you want.

    So you can name the ports and that will persist throughout usage? Does the name display on the LCD?

    Kidding aside, does anyone know if you can name the probes. In other words are the probes chipped so they can be plugged into any port and still retain their identification?


    I love that feature with the Stoker.

    If nobody else wants to take this on then I will. It should be interesting.

    As I don't have a Fireboard (currently) at some point I may need someone who has one to assistant with doing testing.
    I can test. I need to re-calibrate my grills, so I have the time and will to help.

    I currently use Rocks Stoker and have dreamed of HS3 Integration.

    So I've contacted Fireboard twice now with questions about IoT connectivity options.

    I got nada, zip, no response at all.

    It is Alexa and google voice enabled. Not sure about IFTTT integration. That would be a good solution for triggering if they added it.

    Is it IFTTT enabled ?? Note that some clouds appear to be faster than others ,, I have a LEEO that takes forever to update thru IFTTT, yet most devices at most take a minute to set , a lot seem to be almost as fast as doing it locally.. Keep in mind if you do it using HS3 (or I'm sure any HA system.) you're going thru at least 3 clouds ,, the devices , IFTTTs and MYHS or MYHS , IFTTTs , the device.. so you are at the mercy of those clouds volume and reliability.. Not that the others don't ever go down it does seem MYHS goes down a lot I been having other issues so it could be better ,, you just may want to google if things go wrong.. Any how you may want to try IFTTT if the device is IFTTT enabled.. I'm the only one having this issue (according to Homeseer !!) yet the one big hint I can give you is after on get the device working with Homeseer ,, backup HS3 and restart I've have been having an issue with my IFTTT devices disappearing if I don't restart after adding them.. Hope this helps.. I use IFTTT to do all my WIFI devices that work with IFTTT with HS3 , I've used it to get to some of my Smartthings hub devices ,, it works well..

    They have good reviews on most of the Bbq sites and forums.

    Plus the company seems like just a great well run Kansas City based company. I wanted to order the extreme kit but with the comp probes instead of the rtd based probes. Contacted them with their web form. Very quick response. Gave me what I wanted for less than I expected. No calling in with credit cards or waiting for call backs of having to jump through hoops.

    Somehow they have managed to be a new small company with a tech product that came out the door with mature customer support.

    Impressed so far.

    They have a really nice API. If I had one I could probably write the plugin for it. But I don't think I would sell enough of the plugin to recoup the cost of the fireboard. I'll add it to my birthday list and see what happens. In the meantime someone else may pick up the cause!

    It is a drop in the bucket price wise when you start looking at prices of grills/pits. Heck there are chunks of wagyu brisket that cost more than the thermometer.
    Oh no doubt. A good grill is not cheap.
