What’s weird is I recently got the new iPhone...prior to that I had an android and it did work well. I could adjust temp use timer everything. Also on android it had a probe set and current temp for the probe but I don’t see that now.I’m with you, so disappointed in the app. All it is good for is monitoring the temp, that is as long as you are 20 fr from the grill. I lose the WiFi or Bluetooth connection when I go in the house.
We’re you able to adjust temps? I could not. I have the brand new iPhone not sure if that’s the issue but couldn’t change temps unless I was doing something wrong.I tried mine for the first time today, with an iPhone I had no problems from at least 200’ away while working in the yard, I thought it worked quite well.
Is anyone using it on the 1150?...what’s weird is I just got a new iPhone prior I had android and it worked but only shows actual temp on iPhone and can’t adjust temp up or down.How come mine worked 5 miles away ? Went to the grocery store mid smoke and was even able to adjust and monitor temp while shopping. I was impressed so much I've been trying to research distance with this app and have found nothing from what I experienced (pro 850s2)
The IT guys think there is something wrong with the blue tooth on my control panel...when I turn off blue tooth and WiFi they said the IT light on my control panel should blink as this means no connection...mine does not blink. My only issue with their theory is it will show the correct actual temp Just nothing else.Is anyone using it on the 1150?...what’s weird is I just got a new iPhone prior I had android and it worked but only shows actual temp on iPhone and can’t adjust temp up or down.
Interesting as my phone is a new iPhone as well and my grill is the new 1150. Did you talk to the IT guys?I've tried everything with the app. Like most politicians, it promises nirvana and delivers a ghetto existence. New iPhone and PB 1600. Just doesn't work. Can't trust anything on the screen.
I’ll try that but I couldn’t get it to work standing in front of it. Only thing that would work for me was the app did read the actual temp.After playing with the app and the 1150 smoker over several weeks - I have turned off Bluetooth in the smoker app settings (not the general Bluetooth setting) and let it connect only through wifi. You need Bluetooth to connect to WiFi but after connecting the first time I do not think you need it. Wifi works well from everywhere. I have pretty strong WiFi on the side of the house where the smoker is. I am totally guessing but I think the problem is that the app defaults to Bluetooth if you are anywhere near the smoker, but doesn’t work well if you are in a medium distant range. Ie, it senses the Bluetooth but it’s too far away to connect properly.
I worked with the APP support and they said I had a bad controller.... due to low connectivity.I just tried it, it did not work for me. I turned Bluetooth off inside the actual app settings.
Told me same thing... however I do notice the it light on my grill doesn’t flash if I turn off WiFi or Bluetooth from my understanding it stays solid of connected and flashes of not so mine should be flashing when I turn those 2 things offf.I worked with the APP support and they said I had a bad controller.... due to low connectivity.
I think they need to do a scrap and write a new software load....
I have written and compiled a lot of software for hospitals... and this app has so many bugs in it i don't think even the ORKIN MAN could get all the bugs out
