Hi from Mark & Monique!
Smartfire is a startup founded in Australia - an idea born at the pub (Bluetooth didn't reach) and designed and prototyped on a kitchen table. The goal was being able to monitor, manage and smoke perfectly BBQ food while getting the weekend shopping done!
Like many I was frustrated with the expensive and outdated options for smoker temperature control. The Smartfire product is the result of ground up redesign of what the product should be. Every element from the reliability and accuracy of the electrical circuitry to how users could interact with the unit was challenged and evaluated against the ideals of cost efficiency and functionality. The Patent pending (AU2015903801) result combines the typically separated control brains and air control units into an aesthetically pleasing single device controlled via cloud services by a smartphone app at less than half the cost of the competition. If you're wondering, yes, it does work from the corner local!
Smartfire is proud to be located 'downunder' in Melbourne, Australia. A key part of Australian culture is being open to feedback and suggestions so feel encouraged to get in touch via social media or the contact form below.
