How much gas is left in your gas bottle?

BMPRO takes the guess work out of this question in releasing SmartSense, an accurate gas bottle monitor to Australian BBQ lovers and RVers.

SmartSense is a small monitor (approximately the size of a business card), which is attached to the underside base of a gas cylinder with two strong magnets. It detects the gas level remaining within the cylinder and sends this information via Bluetooth to a smartphone. The free downloadable SmartSense app is available in Android and IOS.

The app includes alarm notifications to inform the user when the gas level detected is below the settable threshold.

The SmartSense app allows monitoring of multiple gas bottles from one phone. It works with the standard domestic portable gas bottles and provides options to select from 3.7 kg or 8.5 kg cylinders or even to set up the bottle size arbitrarily by entering the bottle height.

Users can configure settings individually for each monitored cylinder, including naming the cylinder, alarms and unit of measurement to be displayed as percentage or centimetres.

Caravanners running their BBQs, stoves, or fridges on gas; café owners using outdoor gas heaters; BBQ lovers and everybody else using liquified gas will find this app to be highly useful and convenient. It takes the guesswork out of understanding how much gas is remaining.

No more undercooked sausages and running out of gas in the middle of your BBQ or a trip. No more warm water testing, weighing gas bottles or fortune telling – now there a SmartSense app for that!

SmartSense is available from BMPRO online store and through recommended retailers, RRP$89.95.

RVers should keep a lookout in 2020 when the SmartSense will be integrated and operate within the 2020 JHub and Odyssey control and monitoring systems in new caravans.

    Q. Does SmartSense ever require replacement battery. If so, how often, and does the app let you know when battery is low?

    I just installed two Gas Bottle Monitors and the one on the full bottle switches off after some time. The other one is still updating the level every ten seconds. Is this normal?

  3. I have the same question, unknown is displayed on the app and both monitors are paired showing gas levels. Using iPhone 11 Pro and lates operating system.

      Hi Steve, if the app shows unknown it means there’s no Bluetooth connection. Please ensure Bluetooth is turned on on your phone. Let us know if the problem persists.

  4. Hi there,

    My two monitors paired almost instantly but I also have the word “Unknown” under the last update info.

    Is this a fault with the app?

    I’m the third person to mention this now..

    1. Hi Simon,
      if the app shows unknown it means there’s no Bluetooth connection. Please ensure Bluetooth is turned on on your phone. Let us know if the problem persists.

  5. My 2 gas bottle sensors have paired and I have named then in the settings and set notification for % threshold.

    Yet I still have the word “Unknown” in the info windows and it does not send any notifications when the % threshold is reached. I have looked at my notifications settings including for each app and its all set correctly.

    This is my second message here. My first message has been removed.

    Can you please advise so I can sort this out or i will have to request a refund through either PayPal or ebay.

    Regards.

    1. Hi Simon,

      Sometimes the sensor has not woken up from the sleep mode it has been shipped in. You may need to press the orange button 6 times to wake it up.
      The next step is to check that Bluetooth is on on your phone.
      Your first message has not been removed but it sometimes takes time before it appears on the website.

      Best wishes,
