iDevices' CEO Chris Allen presented the company's latest line up of smart devices at a press conference at CES 2014. The just announced the Kitchen Thermometer (MSRP $79.99) is slated to come out in January 2014 with a mini, one-probed version coming out in June of 2014.
Unlike the recently announced iGrill2, the Kitchen Thermometer is designed for indoor use only. It features the same remote monitoring, temperature presets, multiple grill support, and social features as the original iGrill, along with a few cool—or in this case hot—new features. Users can now share temperature data with other tech-savvy gourmets. Think you discovered the perfect temperature for searing a sirloin steak? Then tell your friends. There can't be too many cooks if they're all in different kitchens.
Both devices come equipped with a proximity wake up feature which switches the thermometers on, or off based on the closeness of your connected smart device.
The iLP, which utilizes ultra-sonic waves to check levels in propane tanks was also present. iDevices also announced a SDK (Software Development Kit) for outside developers looking to create the next big grilling app.
