Using your FireBoard
The FireBoard App, Part 5: Wearables and Smart Speakers
Spring-boarding off of our micro series exploring the capabilities of the FireBoard app, this post will take a look at some different methods you can use to access your FireBoard data, monitor your cooks and in the case of smart assistants like Amazon Alexa, control your cooks.
While certainly the most convenient, using IOS and Android devices is not the only way you can remotely monitor your FireBoard cook.
If you want to view your FireBoard on a desktop workstation, click over to FireBoard.io and sign into your account as you would on your mobile connection. This presents a great desktop PC view of your FireBoard data, with the same realtime experience.
Apps are available free of charge for Apple Watches and a variety of Garmin’s wearables at the Apple App Store and Connect IQ Store respectively.
Both allow you to view an active cook with a graph view of the session’s progress, monitor the strength of your connection signal and battery level.
If you own a FireBoard Spark you can watch a cook by enabling SyncMode on the Spark. Click here to view our blog post announcing the release of SyncMode.
Ready to kick it up a notch? How about using voice commands? The FireBoard Knowledge Base has a thorough overview of this feature, but essentially Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are able to answer questions and execute voice commands. This is super handy if you are busy in the kitchen with dirty hands and want to know what your pit temperature is up to, or your current fan speed. Click here for a complete list of voice commands.
I love the Garmin and the Google Assistant integration! Thank you!
Just started using my Apple Watch with our FireBoard. Very handy.
