I have been working with a new tech startup out of Boston called Tank Utility and we have developed a WiFi-connected propane smart meter which allows you to monitor their propane usage through a mobile-first, web-based app on your smartphone or computer.
Our founder knows what it is like to run out of propane in the winter and have to deal with the major home damage that comes from frozen or busted pipes, so he developed this device and we are looking for your feedback and general ideas about how this smart meter could help you out.
We do have a rest API for users to leverage tank level data, but we haven’t yet published it due to our current stage of development which is user testing the hardware and user interface. If there’s any other aspect of the device that could help you leverage the data in addition to the the API, please let us know.
Micasaverde users have expressed interest in this type of technology previously, but it seems like a product didn’t exist to meet the home automation market’s need for propane level visibility until now.
I will be actively monitoring this thread, so if you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask. We will be launching a crowd-funding campaign in the very near future, so be on the lookout for that and spread the word about the propane smart meter to other Micasaverde users who may have an interest in this.
