About the FireBoard Cloud
FireBoard sends realtime temperature data to the cloud every 5 seconds, and re-distributes the data so you can view it anywhere. If you need to head back to the office, or run out to the store, you can track everything remotely. Alerts can even be setup while you’re away since everything is managed through the FireBoard Cloud. The FireBoard Cloud is free to use for consumer users. 24/7/365 monitoring is available for $10/month. More about the FireBoard Cloud Commercial Pricing here.
With FireBoard Cloud the data is YOUR data. It’s always available to download right to CSV so you have your history.
Even if the FireBoard isn’t able to reach the internet, it can synchronize data to the cloud using a Smartphone’s Bluetooth connection. This is a handy feature to keep your history available on the cloud, so you can always see what you’ve been cooking.

BBQ Competitions & Our Early User Group
Some have asked us – “What’s the port on the side for?”
Why Wired Temperature Probes?
We decided to use wired probes because they are time tested and robust. Since the probes are such an important element we didn’t want them breaking down in extreme heat. Cooking, grilling and smoking can expose the probes to harsh conditions and we wanted our solution to work well over the long run.
The FireBoard supports multiple probe types — both Thermistors and RTDs! Read more about the differences and pros/cons between the probe types here.
