    So I can keep an eye on my smoke at work while my wife is at home and near the butt :)

    Sure there are. But you will spend about three times as much as non-wifi thermos.

    Here is one:

    Why don't you just tell your wife to tend to the smoke and keep an eye on her?

  6. Get a maverick and put an IP camera in front of it.

    This is actually pretty smart haha.  Not alarms though!
     
  8. would have to have the app open, but if you have a sound enabled IP camera, its doable! LOL.

  11. it does say:

    User selectable unit (Celsius/Fahrenheit

    I'm waiting to see some reviews before involving that much money on some more therm's, but if it works well, I may just be willing to invest. the wifi capability would alleviate all issues I have with range in my case (my wifi network extends strongly to every part of my house/property).

    Has anyone seen any more reviews of this? I just stumbled upon it. All i've seen is AmazingRibs.com review but it almost seems to positive like a paid review...

    I guess it's ok to post outside links in this thread? So anyhow here's another one that looks interesting. But it's a pre order don't like like it's actually in production yet?

     
  14. huh.... I don't know if I want to fund it or not. would stink if nothing ends up being produced, but I enjoy the ingenuity of the developers.

    Looks like it was more of a pre-order they already reached their investment goal. Due to ship in March. I'm not a gadget guy but if I were I'd give this one a try. I like the looks of the block of wood with the meter built into it and the price is not bad.

    For the tech challenged like myself, could someone recommend an inexpensive IP camera that I can check using my iphone or pc?
     
  17. look for one that gets good reviews on amazon and mentions plug and play.

    something as simple as this:

    should work for you, get the model with the features you need (night view, etc.)

    They got $1.3M in funding and they were only asking for $100K to proceed. Clearly there were a lot of people willing to make this happen. Their "Ship Date" has slipped to late June or July. This was due to a redesign of the probe to fit a better battery with longer life. The latest project update stated that they were almost ready to go into the certification testing that .gov requires. The phone app and the wireless seem to be in place.

    Full Disclosure: I am a backer of the project.

    Foscam Ip cameras are inexpensive and work good. I have several of them.
