The Boveda Butler is a Bluetooth-powered device that tracks the temperature and humidity levels inside of your humidor. The data is transmitted directly to your mobile device. His accuracy and price are a great addition for all cigar lovers. A big plus is that you can maintain the humid air inside of your humidor by checking its conditions without opening the lid.
The most important feature of the Boveda Butler is the push notification. This alerts the user when a humidor falls outside of its desired range. Upon installing the Smart Sensor, the app will prompt you to set a minimum and maximum level for both humidity and temperature. If the humidor falls outside of this range, an alert will be sent to your phone letting you know that upkeep is required.
The Boveda Butler also keeps a record of the temperature and humidity levels inside of your humidor. The data can be analyzed so you can evaluate how conditions are altered throughout the day or as the season’s change.
The disadvantage is that Bluetooth technology only carries a range of about 30 meters. The Boveda Butler can still be monitored remotely if this is accessed from another device. Keep your tablet within range of your humidor. This feature, however, requires users to have a tablet or additional smartphone in the vicinity of the humidor at all times.
Setting up the device is quick and easy. Download the Boveda app and use the Bluetooth setting on your phone to link the app to your Boveda Butler. If you’re planning on using multiple devices, you can name each sensor to match the humidor you will be monitoring Humidor 1, Humidor2, etc.).
The last step is calibrating the sensor. Boveda’s One-Step Calibration Kit, which is included in the Smart Sensor Starter Kit, simplifies this task and produces extremely accurate results. Place the 75 percent relative humidity pack and Boveda Sensor inside the zip bag and let it sit for 24 hours. After that, use the provided Velcro strips to fasten the Smart Sensor to the inside lid of your humidor, or simply place it among your cigars.
The Smart Sensor Starter Kit also includes a four-pack of 60-gram Boveda bags (with the option of 65 percent, 69 percent, 72 percent and 75 percent relative humidity). The Boveda app also has an auto reorder feature so you can have fresh humidity packs delivered to your home or office on a recurring basis.
