World’s first smart barbecue sensor and platform launches.

Smartsensor Technologies, a leading, Australian Internet of Things technology company, today announced a strategic partnership with Australia’s leading outdoor barbecue manufacturer, Christie Barbecues.

The agreement is for the design, development, manufacture, and support of the world’s first smart barbecue solution.

To be known as the Christie Smart Barbecue with GoAccess Platform, the sensor device and customisable platform provides deep insights into outdoor barbecues in public spaces including utilisation, temperature, alert information, fault diagnostics, cleaning information, and historical data.

The solution empowers councils, public space asset and facility managers, and other asset owners to manage their barbecues effectively whilst driving down operational costs and maintenance.

The exclusive agreement for Australia and New Zealand will see significant numbers of Smartsensor Technologies’ sensors integrated and deployed with Christie barbecues, with the GoAccess asset management platform and application provided to customers.

Leon Hayes, Managing Director of Smartsensor Technologies said “We are in awe of Christie and their team and truly humbled by the opportunity to work in partnership with them to revolutionise the public space barbecue market. As a third-generation family business, we look at Christie with deep respect and admiration.”

Alex Christie, Christie’s Managing Director said: “We started out on this Smart City journey to offer our clients the most comprehensive array of tangible benefits that our latest generation barbecue cooktop can provide. In partnering with Australia’s leading internet of things company, Smartsensor Technologies has developed an integrated sensor, and management platform that enables us to offer our clients unprecedented visibility and robust analytics for proactive public barbecue asset management.”

The agreement commercialises the World’s first smart barbecue device and platform, that was released to the Australian market in 2017.

“Our smart barbecue solution is a global first in many ways: the world’s first NB-IoT powered smart barbecue, the world’s first LoRaWAN powered smart barbecue, and simply the world’s first and most advanced smart barbecue device and asset management platform.” said Hayes.

The system has been launched on Telstra’s NB-IoT network and various LoRaWAN networks Australia wide.

The GoAccess app is available now to download from the Google Play and Apple app stores.
