New Smart GasWatch Scale Keeps Eye on BBQ Tank with Digital Alerts to Keep Propane Fires Burning

The new Smart GasWatch Scale makes sure that backyard entertaining never runs short of propane, a true “peace of mind” innovation that will keep the BBQ grill fired up in the summer and outdoor patio heater warming in the winter.

“Summer may be ending soon, but many households rely on the grill year ‘round and the new Smart GasWatch Scale is ideal for BBQ grills and wintertime heaters that use propane tanks as a source of fuel. This week, we’re introducing two new models of the Smart GasWatch Scale and both are available now on Amazon.com, and at GasWatch.com,” said North Carolina technology entrepreneur Shaliendra Suman, who first introduced an analog version of GasWatch product ten years ago.

The original GasWatch Model TVL212, which is still available, uses an analog gauge to estimate remaining fuel in a propane tank.

“We first introduced the GasWatch gauges as a simple way to solve a very frustrating problem – running out of propane in the middle of a cookout. Now we’ve enhanced GasWatch to offer a simple and cost-effective way to keep an eye on how much gas is left in the tank just by monitoring the weight of the tank itself. For about the cost of a single tank refill, you can always know how much cooking time is left on your current tank,” said Suman, who was recognized this year by the Mayor of Charlotte with an Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Ideal for Grills and Propane Heaters

The new GasWatch Digital Scale provides peace of mind with a digital display of how much gas remains in the propane tank, a real-time calculation of remaining cooking time, and convenient audible alerts at the 20%, 15% and 10% remaining fuel levels. Since the GasWatch Digital Scale simply measures tank weight, it is very accurate and safe to use.

“We designed the new Smart GasWatch Scale to fit into most grill cabinets and patio heaters, and it is built to withstand ever-changing weather conditions. The new GasWatch is easy to set up and requires no tools. Simply place the tank on the scale, select the tank weight and the scale is ready-to-go,” said Suman.

The new Smart GasWatch Scale resembles a large plastic “doughnut” that sits under the propane tank and is available in two different models. The basic Model TVL 216 features a digital readout fixed to the circular baseplate and is available at a suggested retail price of $24.95. Model TVL 214 includes a 4.5 foot wire to connect the baseplate to a remote digital readout (allowing display placement closer to the cooking area) and carries a suggested retail price of $29.95.

Note to editors: Reviewers interested in trying out the new GasWatch Digital Scale should contact Blake Lofgren (Blake@ArlandCom.com) for consideration of a review unit.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
