[Amazon.ca] Inkbird Wireless BBQ/Oven/Smoker Thermometer $60.99

New to posting, so go easy.

Amazon has a wireless inkbird BBQ thermometer on sale from $90 to 74.99 -- with an additional coupon to clip for $14 more off.
Maybe a bit niche, but not a bad deal - inkbird is a good make.

Edit: Looks like a number of inkbird thermometers have various deals. Here's one for 55.99

I am using an inkbird wireless thermometer. The device itself is ok. Their customer service has been exceptional. Anything went wrong they send me replacement right away.

But do note that even it says it is waterproof, mine went haywire after doing a smoking session in the rain (they did send me a brand new replacement though)

Have the IBBQ-4T and really like it. If you have a dual band router that switches automatically (Same network name for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz), you will probably need to disable the 5GHz band in order to get it connected. Once it's connected you can re-enable the 5GHz band.

Edit: Looks like this model doesn't use wifi

Have this unit. Was about this cost from China. Works fine. Good battery, good alarm, great magnet. It's not waterproof. It's not wifi. Uses bluetooth to an app that could use a fair amount of work, but functions with a graph, range alarm, and setpoint alarms you can customize. I've only had connection issues when it needs to be charged. Also works fine without the app, but you lose almost all functionality outside temperature reporting on the 8 segment display.

Accuracy is good enough for smoking/grilling, has about a 5C swing so possibly 2.5 degrees higher or lower across 20 to 150C I could accurately test. You can buy replacement probes for about $15 each on eBay if you accidentally damage one.

For someone like me who doesn't mind connecting stuff to Bluetooth and who dont need more than 20 feet range, is there any advantages to the wifi one?? Do I really need to spend an extra 50$?

Only benefits I can see are wifi range, good for check it once an hour when you're smoking, and I assume a locally ran html style webUI access and control over an abandoned dedicated app, assuming that's how it works, so you can view on say a Pi with display or a fridge screen. Scripting triggers so when X probe hits 80C turn on a fan or something not related to improving BBQ food quality is probably easier too as well as any logging. This is all assuming the thermometer works locally and don't suddenly need the internet to function.

I'd stay away from bluetooth thermometers personally. What happens when app dies/company shuts down? Not saying they will but a RF thermometer won't have the same issues. I personally like RF for the range and lack of connectivity issues. Much simpler to look onto a device that connects through RF than to open up my phone, wait for a glitchy/slow/disconnecting app to show temp. Of course you'd be missing out on the extra features like temp logs over time if that's important to you. I'd go with the TP08 instead.. I've had mine for 2-3 years now with no issues and runs like a tank.

What's the issue if the company dies? Bluetooth connectivity doesn't die since it doesn't require the company's private cloud. So it should work forever.
:arrowl: Thanks if Helped! :D
