Update!!! I found the unit, bluedot, keeps disconnecting while my phone screen was off. If you leave screen on at all times it stays connected, so that is what I have been doing. Also it would be awesome if the app could switch to landscape mode on a phone as an option, not automatically though maybe via onscreen button??

Great app. Sometimes it gets hung up when switching off screen to another app, but the readings come back right away when you re open the app. Alarms work perfectly they're a God SEND!

I bought a Signals to fulfill the dream of monitoring my temps from anywhere. That ended up not being the case. The app (or device) is just buggy enough that I can't trust it. I shut off the 5ghz band of my network while cooking, so that's not it. It'll connect when I first power it up, then it'll lose the wifi connection...and sometimes it'll lose the Bluetooth connection...and trying to reconnect isn't easy. I power cycle the device, force close and reopen the app...it's maddening.

I LOVE this app, One thing that would make it BETTER, would be the ability to have a floating window, similar to what YouTube does. So one can use another app and still have your cook visible on-screen.

"Can't connect to WiFi. Call technical support." That is the issue I want to deal with when I want the cook on the grill. In the past, No prob connecting the first time I used it, might be the last.

App and Signals work really well, no issues. The only complaint I have is when you set a probe alarm, when the alarm goes off you can cancel it in the app which silences your phone but the device itself still beeps. I would prefer it if canceling to alert on your phone also cancels the alert on the device itself.

App works good, alarm feature needs to be fixed. And the newest firmware update doesn't keep temp as good as before

Editing my post: Finally got to talk to a tech. I allowed the app permission to access locations when I installed it. Discovered that locations for the phone must also be turned on. App wants to resolve the location for some reason app wants to resolve the location prior to connecting to bluetooth. So turn on locations then connect to device. Bluetooth does not connect Everytime I use my Signals the Bluetooth fails to connect. Even after removing the app and the device no connection.

Love Signals. Definitely upped my BBQ game to the next level! Being able to graph my temps I can monitor my temp of my Webber kettle and I can see exactly what happens when I add 1 or 2 or 3 briquettes and dial it right in. Instead of guessing it's now a science. I'll never look at my bbq's thermometer again.

It just doesn't work 90% of the time. It won't open. If it does you can't create an account. When you finally do it never logs in. If you try to log in anonymously it will only move past the login 20% of the time and even then it creates problems. Thermometers are great. App is trash. About to send the whole thing back.

If you don't own any thermoworks products that's unfortunate. I use 5 different products and love them all. Any problems (which is unusual) they stand behind 100%.

App works mostly ok. Often loses track of a session. Have to close and restart to get it to figure out what's going on again. Closing and archiving a session can be a black art.

Too bad alerts don't work with WearOS watches. Also, be sure to check phone volume otherwise you get NO alert what so ever. The alert volume for app is separate setting (bad app coding choice to have it this way).

I can't get an alarm on my phone from the Signals. It's pointless if it won't ding my phone. Edit: After deleting and downloading and updating firmware(3 times), I now get an alarm on my phone. But it's through the media volume. I'll have to make sure it's turned up. And it doesn't show on my watch..so I'll have to keep my phone in my pocket at all times. Get it together Thermoworks.

The alarms from this won't "ring" if my phone is asleep. Probably an OS limitation but it means I can't solely rely on this to wake me up in the middle of the night that my brisket is ready to be wrapped. Fortunately it seems I can still run this app and the Smoke Receiver together. I can use the former to gather rich data and the latter to reliably alarm me. Annoyance: Can't seem to delete sessions. I don't want to save/archive failed/unimportant/test sessions.

Not just for BBQ. I needed a way to monitor my wood boiler temperature to know when to refill without constantly checking on it. this device not only lets me monitor 4 temperatures anywhere at anytime, it also graphs and alerts when temps get to low. Great product

This app still needs work. Some suggestions: 1. The anonymous account login should not nag for an email address 2. There should be an alarm when the bluetooth connection drops, especially given how flaky the bluetooth connection is with the app. 3. The alarms should be customizable, with different stock-android and user-downloaded sounds being available for high alarm, low alarm, etc. 4. It should be easier to log out, without having to go menu-diving. 5. When logged out, there should be a way to close the app without having to go to a "view all open apps" view. Like others, I've found the connection to my BlueDot to be short-range and flaky - shorter ranged than other bluetooth devices I've tested with my phone, and frequently dropping the bluetooth connection.

This is a case of you get what you pay for. This is the best thermometer I have ever used. Only downfall is battery life.

Decent app with some features to be desired. My greatest desired feature would be the ability to time stamp events with notes on the graph. Another feature I would like to see would be the addition of photos to be linked to these time stamps.

Lots of bugs. Session didn't seem to end after doing an "end and archive". Says still going even though it's saved. Connection appears to drop when your phone screen goes off. Takes a bit for wifi to reconnect (grey to green signal). Bluetooth says "connecting" in settings, blue on screen?? The tracking and graphing are great. Wish there was a probe pause when wrapping and removing a probe for a moment. I just pulled the plug from the base so it didn't record low temps while not in the meat.

Pretty glitchy and inconsistent. On first use with a BlueDOT, it froze and required restart of my phone. Temp doesn't seem to update very frequently and there's no provision for a manual forced update. Lot of potential but poor execution.

The recent app updates have greatly improved the user experience. I'd like if the graph view could show a forecast or projection based on rate of increase so when my wife asks when dinner will be ready I'd have a better answer than "we cook to temperature, not to time!"

In July I found I was unable to use my Smoke Bridge unless I did a firmware update. After a number of hours I gave up on using WiFi with my Smoke. Finally, a month later, after the most recent update to the app, it is finally working again. I had to ignore the messages that something had gone wrong and that I needed to restart the process. When it's working it's fine, but every time you do an upgrade it takes me hours to get it working again. Please don't do another 'upgrade'

Nothing negative comes to my mind when using my Signals. The main unit and optional fan are fantastic. I use this device on my OK Joe Longhorn and Weber Smokey Mountain. Additionally the customer service is fabulous. Also bough their Thermapen. Again, NO complaints. I will continue to use this companies products.

I had the Meater probe, it wouldn't read once I went inside the house and only lasted a few cooks. The Blue Dot is amazing, super easy to use and the range is incredible. No more problems with lost connection when I go inside. It was very affordable and easy to use, I highly recommend it.

Love thermoworks products but my signal CONSTANTLY loses strong wifi connection until this app is fixed I don't trust with expensive cut of meats I also have the billows..I have to use my basic Smoke. This app needs a major overhaul or I have a 300.00 paperweight..FYI I have updated..this is ridiculous

I love ThermoWorks products but have yet to be able to set up the Smoke Gateway, months after purchasing. I have tried multiple times. Called tech support about a month ago and was told they knew there was a software problem and they were working on it. Tried to connect again today and although I can connect the device to my phone wifi there is no next button to complete the process. Really disappointing since this company usually does much better.

Horribly buggy app, loses connection w/ Signals constantly despite being on a solid wifi connection. This app almost bricked my device during a firmware update despite me following Thermoworks's instructions to the letter. I can't remove the "...exceeded 24 hr limit..." notification, despite ending old session and starting a new one, going into the cloud and deleting all the old sessions, restarting both my Signals and the app, and reinstalling the app. Avoid any products that require this app.

Connected to my phone the 1st time about a yr ago. All subsequent uses inspite of my best efforts(and others far more tech savvy than I) it just searches and searches and won't connect with my phone. Never have I had such issues with any other device. Garmin, Ring, etc. Zip zip instant connection. A simple thermometer- problems.

The app is OK. It was fairly easy to setup and get working, however in order to continue to get readings from the BlueDOT I have to keep my screen on; leaving the app or turning it off disconnects my phone from the BlueDOT. Also, I turned on the constant notification, however my phone has yet to give me any notifications. I think the app needs some work, however, when connected, it give me the temperature and tracks the history/rate, which is great!

Haven't been using the app long; however, I've been mostly satisfied so far. I haven't been able to find how to have others view, or view others, live streams and I wish there were settings you could tweak on the graph. Upgrades to the graphing would be extremely useful to view certain times during your cook or other data constraints without having to export the data to an Excel file

Good hardware, but the app — not so much. This company's thermometers are top-notch. The app is another story, though. I couldn't get it to work with the BlueDOT thermometer until I realized I had to do four things on the mobile phone: Turn on Bluetooth and wifi and Location services—and log in to a Thermoworks account. If all four criteria aren't met, the thing just won't work. Aw, c'mon. It's a Bluetooth device that should be able to work with the mobile phone's Bluetooth alone. But, having to switch on that+wifi+Location and also log into an account—just to get a temperature reading? Kind of absurd. Wish I'd known it at the get-go. I'd have bought the less expensive DOT rather than the BlueDOT. At first I couldn't even close the app. Finally I realized—by trial and error—that it won't close until you've logged out of the account you had to log in to use the app in the first place. If this is documented explicitly, beats me where to find the info. The final (un-)frosting on the cake is finding that the range over which the connection is maintained isn't anything like what it should be. [Edit: Regarding developer's reply. Location services might be required for your app, but they are NOT required for connection to Bluetooth devices, generally. I've never had to use Location in connecting to other Bluetooth devices—confirmed by other participants in a tech forum where I've asked about this. Other app developers have confirmed it for me as well—including a developer who makes apps that connect to users' medical devices. Next: Whether logging in anonymously is possible is not the issue. Even with anonymous login the app cannot be closed without going to the user profile page and explicitly logging out. This just isn't right—at the very least because the how-to-quit-the-app procedure is not easily "discoverable" (a problem all by itself). It should be possible to log out via repeatedly pressing the "Back" button, at which point the app queries: Closing the app will log you out—proceed(Y/N)?]

Great concept, well designed app, the only problem is it is very very glitchy. It took me almost 2 hrs to get my signals paired to my home wifi after a firmware update. The app glitches out all the time and has a hard time staying connected to my Signals. You have to kill the app and restart frequently to get current temp readings. Fix the bugs and this rating will change to 5 stars.

I'd like to be able to zoom in on a smaller graphed time range to better see the temperature deviations. Other than that, the app is superb and a joy to use. I highly recommend Thermoworks.

Nicely designed app that follows the Android app aesthetic. Using with my Smoke and haven't had any issues. Would be nice to be able to look into past sessions within app rather than having to jump to the web browser. Also, perhaps add a tip for the initial setup to disable any auto start VPNs. Had a bit trouble setting up my Smoke Gateway because I forgot that my VPN auto starts on untrusted networks. In regards to ThermoWorks Cloud, would be nice to be able to set up MFA for your account.

The new Signals x4 has NO synk button and for me will only work in Stand Alone mode and will not synk with Smoke Gatewy. A wast of almost $300 IMHO. There is no info on setting up this ONE button on the back Signals x4 ANYWHERE! I should have just been happy with my Camp Chef WiFi that's bluetooth is a pain to log into each time but atleast it works. This is the Signals x4 you sent me last week, it is NOT a Smoke x4! It has 1 button on the back and 6 on the front and says Signals between the 6.

Stepped up my cooks several levels with just a few tools from Thermoworks! So glad I pulled the trigger and purchased Thermoworks products! They actually pay for themselves with the extra quality of cooks! My extended family brags on the BBQ I can now produce and they say it exceeds what they can get in any of the restaurants. True Story! And Thermoworks customer service is second to none. They flat out take care of you! (This is not a paid endorsement folks!) ...This is THE TRUTH!

Works sometimes - has several bugs including not notifying you when an "alarm" temperature is reached (which is its primary purpose) and not allowing you to set low and high temperatures properly. For example, my app is currently not allowing me to set low and high temperatures of 115 and 125, respectively, giving the error "high value under low", which is just wrong.

The Smoke system as a whole is really cool, but this is a review of the app, which is just okay. The graph is the killer feature, and it's not very good. The app doesn't rotate when the phone does, and you can't zoom on the graph, meaning you're locked into seeing it in a weird square aspect ratio. It gives me much more detail than needed for the 50-degree temperature range on the y-axis and much less detail than needed for a 13-hour session on the x-axis. It also gets stuck sometimes if I haven't checked the app in a while: I'll see my Smoke was last seen only a few seconds ago, but the graph ends ten minutes or more before then. I have to switch out of the graph view and back to get it to update. Because of all that, I'll use the app to set up a session and then mostly not touch it after that, watching the graph on my computer instead.

Apparently making an application that actually connects to a working thermometer is just beyond any company currently in existence. EDIT: customer support reached out and I was prompted sent a new Signals unit. The app does work rather well when everything is cooperating as it should. The new unit synced right up and I'm back in business.

I'd give less than one star if I could. Using Blue Dot. Device is great, previous app worked perfectly, this app is full of connection bugs and alarm notification issues. Completely unusable.

There is absolutely no reason to use this because it is so slow. The polling rate (rate at which the data updates) is way too slow. I can walk to my smoker from any location in my house 6 or 7 times before it updates the temp on my phone. Absolutely useless for remote monitoring. Running Pixel 5, 5G phone service, 1 gig internet with decent wifi, there is no reason for this to take to long to update.

I use the BlueDot and the app has A LOT of trouble holding the connection. I am within maybe 20 feet, there are no obstructions, I can see the device on my phone's bluetooth settings, but the app drops the connection constantly! More disappointing is that I see ThermoWorks responds to similar comments by saying they are sorry we are not happy with the app. Don't be sorry. Instead, fire your current app developer, hire a new one and release a working version the keeps the connection!

Total trash. The signal itself is fantastic. The app is garbage. Unable to connect easily, unable to maintain a connection.

2.75 rounded up. Took a step back with this update. Visually works better than the previous but it would go 10-20+ minutes without an updated reading. I almost wish for the old app, which isn't saying much because that one had very poor and spotty functionality. You'd think a company who could produce such quality hardware would figure it out on the software side. Alas, no. Edit 11.25.20: not even connecting now. Waste of money. Disappointed.

I was surprised how easy the setup was, I'm using it with signals and billows and got everything going in about 15 minutes. I did have trouble getting wifi working. My wifi has 5ghz and 2ghz SSID. when connecting to wifi, it does say that it only supports 2ghz, but it listed the 5ghz SSID after the scan. It took me two attempts to realize that I needed to manually enter the 2ghz SSID name to connect. Id like to be able to change the colors in the graph, yellow on white is hard to read.

Frustrating and a waste of time and money... Old app much better... Cannot connect to wfi when right next to modem & phone turned off wifi. Tried for close to an hour 2-3 months ago with member of tech support who couldn't figure out connect issue. Today uninstalled and reinstall so could hopefully use tonight, sent to reset password over an hour ago & still no link. Good thermometer (smoke), but awful app & support... if receive better experience will update but otherwise stuck. Beware.

Significant upgrade over the old app! The cloud integration works well and beats emailing csv files to myself. Just wish they'd do more with the extensive data they are getting from the cook logs. It should be smart enough to know that a 65 degree, 4 pound pork tenderloin smoking at 225 in 48 degree temps will be ready around 645pm and then tweak from there. I'm more than happy to contribute my cook logs for community analysis. Or open the cloud data to 3rd party analysis tools. Data rules!!!

Excellent equipment. App needs a little work with connectivity issues. I'm using a Pixel 4XL and the app has trouble updating via internet connection. I would also like to see some more functionality with Billows. Specifically, I would prefer a "quiet hours" function if it dips less than a specified amount below the programmed temp. I set it to 225 and it alarmed throughout the night if it went just a little below 225. That makes for a long night when there was never a problem with the fire.

I do not like as much as the last app. Seems way slower to pick up updated temps. Takes way too long to refresh once you open your phone. And a lot of the time it doesn't even refresh with the current temps. Frustrating

I *LOVE* Thermoworks products. I use an MK4 and Dot almost daily. They are indispensable. So I bought Signals and Billows to help with my brisket monitoring. Those products are great too, but this app is SO frustrating. It has gotten better, but it's just not what it should be, given Thermoworks overall excellence with their other products. Having to set up wifi repeatedly, just because you touch settings, and not being able to connect with Bluetooth to change settings are sophomoric failures.

Doesn't connect to wifi. Says only connect to 2.4 g. Who doesn't have 4 or 5 g networks???? Sending back.EDIT--- apparently I have 5g and 2.4 g you need to disable 5 g and make sure 2.4 g is enabled. I was able to connect to wifi then. I re -enabled 5g and I'm still connected. I'm moving from 1 star to 3 star because it's complicated and should not be this complicated for something this expensive. Good luck!

I'm about 0/10 on getting this to pair. Try again guys. Edit: I walked away from it, was all ready to return the Gateway, came back later and got it paired basically on the first try. Take away: it's key to do the sequence of presses and holds to make sure the Gateway is off and then on, with the led blinking red, right. Made all the difference.

Smoke last seen: unknown. Ch1 inactive, Ch2 inactive. Smoke gateway flashing purple. Same problem I had with the old app. Gateway will not connect with the wifi.

Terrible. Won't connect to WiFi. Have gone through the setup process numerous times. No errors per app but gateway only blinks purple after setup and app says Smoke is inactive. So disappointed in this product.

Hard to imagine it's worse than the old app. But not off to a good start. Can't get it to display in Celsius despite the option being set in the settings.

ThermoWorks listened to users and delivered numerous improvements on the old app--thank you! Good job! Smoke Gateway is almost like a brand new, very polished product, and it has overcome previous issues.The graphing functionality is expanded; the interface is nicer; and previous cooks are more easily accessible. It looks, feels, and operates the way you would expect for use with a premium alarm thermometer. Negative reviews here appear to be hardware setup issues, not the app's fault. Kudos.

Maybe I'm just too stupid to figure it out. After 500 tries over 5 days, I finally got the original app to work. Now I'm in the same boat trying to get the new app to work. Knowing what I know now, I never would have purchased this thing. Totally not worth it

Not a great start. Immediately says it.doesnt recognise my credentials...even though I am logged in on the old app with the exact same email. No update on how it functions as I cant currently get access

Can't set up a WiFi connection with signals. I had my wifi configured with the previous app, as soon as I switched to this it forced a reconfiguration. It just stays stuck on checking connection before it times out. *Edit* this works correctly on IOS, the Android version fails.

Finally! This is the app I've been waiting for Thermoworks to develop. It's not perfect but it is an EXCELLENT start and an order of magnitude better than the old Thermoworks BBQ app.

Good so far but I wish I could set the scale on the graph as well as visible indicators for set temps.

Much better over the previous app. Two things to add though that will make it perfect: 1. Quick set of various temperatures and probe name based off a meat selection (aka click chicken on drop down and 165, sets high temp alarm and probe name). Also add in custom user made Temps and Names. 2. Widget for homescreen to monitor in the notifications bar or right off the home screen of my phone. Both of these were available on the iGrill back in 2015. Keep up the good work, let's make this perfect.

So far so good. I still leave the phone on "stay awake while charging" to keep the app connected so it will wake me when meat is done, but it worked well last night after 2 FW updates on my signals. My brisket never tasted this good!

Bricked my signal Beware!! After I updated the firmware my signal is now bricked (will not respond). App looks great. But I never got to use it.

MUCH better than the last app (which I thought was good in its own right). As long as it is as reliable as the previous one as well, I am very happy!

Looks good but have a ThermoWorks product that is not wifi. Please put the safe cooking temperature chart on the app. Where is the thermapen MK4 wifi version? From the dev response. Nice to know one can get to the temp chart. It would be nice if it was more front and center in the app.

The new app looks more promising than the old BBQ app, but why are accounts and devices not imported from the old app? I can understand some data not migrating such as saved graphs but making your entire user base start from scratch is a strange choice.

Same as the Gateway smoke, terrible Bluetooth contection. Great thermometers but the software leaves something to be desired.
